Correct.

Bear in mind that there are probably 500 pilots at CX who don’t even meet the minimum experience required by QF, let alone be competitive for the position. And second officers at QF who earn almost as much as a CX captain.

Or that the 3 man London’s were highly requested because of the long layover!
Or that the 3 man London’s were highly requested because people wanted the opportunity to pound in feedback that it was a stupid idea.

Do you have a reference or proof for any of this?

Cathay knows how to complicate things. How about if we get rid of some of these stupid ranks? S/O, JFO, FO, SFO, RQ, CN, etc.

Arrived off long haul trip then min rest ..Up at 4.30am for 6am PC sim then STC calls crew control at end of debrief and given a long haul flight in 12 hours time at 11pm....really? Who else does that? Why bother with a roster?
Pretty crap for planning rest but if you get up at 0430 you should be ready for a pre flight nap...
