A lot of gunnas- So who is getting out?

I'll start.

I'm gone. Had enough and said farewell.

16-18 years. That's enough.

Living where I want, with family, in my chosen (home) country......it's wonderful.

Rosters, compulsory type swaps, CC, ex members going into training after the ban.

I think you guys are screwed. No cohesiveness. Pained to see it for you lot....

But not for me! I'm out!! Days in sun, surf by 10, garden by 12, bit of my own stuff, NO PRESSURE,, bed each night, fresh food, good schools and reconnecting with my long suffering wife.

From one who HAS got out....TAKE EVERY OPP YOU CAN and get THE FCUK OUT OF HK N CX

Huge planet outside the mtr

Every place is what you make it and some will always see the glass as half full. CX does their best to bring you down but HK is very enjoyable for some - much more so than their home country but then it is a good thing that we don't all like the same things isn't it?

Ironically, I stumbled across this gem on a CX flight recently.

Every current and prospective CX pilot should watch it - less than ten minutes of your time invested.

Management love it when senior crew leave: they will be eventually replaced by cheaper pilots.

I reckon monster330 couldn't care less that management will replace him with el-cheapo. As someone whose just broken the golden handcuffs for similar reasons I reckon you couldn't wipe the smile off his face even if you smacked him in the nuts with a cricket bat. Goodonya mate, great feeling isn't it!

Monster 330, if you have put up a fine fight and gone out fighting I say enjoy all that your home country has to offer. Time will tell if we are screwed as you put it. Many of us for various reasons still have a lot of fight left in us. We will stay and fight and resist and approach issues with clarity and clear thinking. And when we are done fighting we will still have our honour and self respect intact unlike the spineless individuals with GMx and DFx in front of their worthless name.
