Staff travel suspended

You watch this one get used more regularly in the future. Any new excuse to chip away at our benefits. I'm sure HKIA staff can spare 1 or 2 muppets to sit there being their usual unhelpful selves.

What has HKIA operations got to do with staff Travel??
Why cant HKIA manage a disruption that regularly occurs in HK?

And lets say said Staff Travellers decided, hey I'll buy full fare, how does that fix HKIA's issue? I for one have purchased a full fare ticket (obviously not CX).

This is just one of a series of stupid thing that they do! It use it to be a rare occurrence but now it seems its been on a weekly basis we get emails, where I look at it, shake my head and hit delete.

get a grip, why would you bother with staff anyway, you wouldn't get on with thousands of passengers attempting to rebook flights.
And it is only ex HKG, all other ports are open to staff travellers.

When is the last time you orchestrated the spool up of an entire airline after suspension of services? The whinging on this forum has reached a new low. Choose your #$%ing battles.

Really, Xwind? You, the whiny noob? The one who wants us all to abandon CC and TB so you can get your upgrade faster? The one who'd rather give in to the company and screw your colleagues so you can finally survive off the sh*tty contract you signed?

Of all the FH ppruners, you are the one who complains about a (admittedly rare) justified, temporary and non-industrial action on behalf of the company before a T10 hits the city?

The World really does revolve around you, doesn't it?

Come on MH...if there are lots of seats just let us do online check in.

This is where a fully automated system would really help.

And what happens when you fill out a form? You get a free room? Or free meal? Or free roster change?

Good question!!
If CX would like CC lifted, perhaps fix what's wrong first.
RP's would be a good start.

AOA, seriously, ffs what are you thinking??

If you want staff travel to Thailand use TG. They have the first three pax a/c on approach now the wind has shifted. Well planned.

Unfortuantely AOA are on the same level as FOPS who suspended FOPS prematurely today for what reason
It was operable all day mostly
How much did that cost ? Millions and millions

Totally irrelevant. After Nida most flights left with empty seats. Staff stranded at counter A.
