Acting DFO

Small prayer that her absence might be permanent after today's news? But stand in actor will only be playing a bit part after many struggles with Swire princelet courses.

I would guess there's a strong correlation between; the timing of the DFO's absence, the implementation date of the new approved "management" structure, and the ever present rumour (or stronger) that the CAD didn't approve the initial run at the new "management" structure, due to there being too many non-pilot "managers" in the FOP hierarchy.

Just wondering if this epic period of chaos, incompetence and destruction is finally being addressed.... .

I suspect nail, head, hammer, on, you have it just right.

not just non pilots, also non engineering qualified....apparently the new guy in charge of engineering doesn't have an engineering degree, rumour was CAD is not impressed with both of the safety sensitive departments to be run by non qualified people

They've all got degrees in cost cutting I bet.

And all this, at the start of HPE, when one would think her presence is vital (at least from a Company perspective); am I alone in seeing a Machiavellian plot here?

But.. but... I thought a being a product of the Swire training gave you complete and absolute knowledge over all of God's creation, along with the ability to look into the future (with the minor exception of oil prices) and the ability to cure cancer?

And all this, at the start of HPE, when one would think her presence is vital
When has her presence been vital for anything? She's done nothing but say 'no' through a pretty smile ever since she's taken the job.
Nothing, absolutely nothing has changed in flight ops since she's here...:

CC, TB, EFB, CMP, HKPA, RP, ARAPA, Bases?
Nada, zilch, squat, rien, status quo...

Yes, and epic record of accomplishment. Don't understand why we aren't the BEST airline on earth.

Third class May 1991, student pilot June 1991, its epic; but theirs your problem, good luck with HBS or Kellogg.

Nah... C'mon it's Summer School Holidays. Surely you have that off as well?

And, 'Have a great Weekend!"
