CX now announces their own inflight perfume gift for pax.

I sh*t you not..

The stupidity of our management is greater than anyone thought possible.

Even our Gold and Diamond members think CX has lost the plot.

CX to offer "sensory souvenir" - the smell of Hong Kong - FlyerTalk Forums

I mean what the F8ck.. Can we just try to fly clean aircraft, serve decent food, offer CURRENT IFE, and get people to their destination at a reasonable cost?
Nope.. No we can't.

An olfactory sensory souvenir! Is that the same 'eau de nulla' scent that welcomed everyone to Kai Tak?

Somebody senior thought this was a good idea. They then authorised the signing of an acquisition contract probably worth millions of HKD. Design and marketing would be a significant cost too and that must've been approved by said 'Senior person'. Who is responsible for this nonsense and what is his/her name?? Nameless, faceless - just like the fuel hedgers. What a way to run a train set.......

So it's official. CX recruiting managers from the Muppet show. And I'm not trying to be funny. Nothing funny at all about what is happening at this sh1t show of an airline.

In a nod to CXs past it will be called

Nulla

.....recall a Bob Hope anecdote when he landed at Hong Kong’s old airport, and asked what the smell was. ‘It’s sewage, Mr Hope.’

‘I know,’ the comedian replied. ‘But what have they done to it?’

I thought the business class toilets on the A50 gave passengers the smell of old Hong Kong - no need to bottle it.

Bob Hope, the comedian stepped off a plane at Kai Tak and asked: "What the hell is that awful smell?"

He was told: "It's s**t, Bob!"

"Well, I know it's s**t, but what did they do TO it?"

I dunno ... if they capture what I'd consider the signature scent of Hong Kong it might be quite a hit with the fellers

Then again it might be hard to differentiate between this particular concoction and that of Bangkok.

You have to understand that the new marketing graduates need a job. Selling smelly sun rotten pork isn't what they had in mind. So they employ them ("yay look where I work"), give them some project and keep them totally disjointed from real life problems at said workplace. I'm sure it's happening all over.

What HK fragrance are we talking about here?

Stinky tofu? Restaurant kitchen back alley? Diesel Double Decker exhaust? Red taxi vinyl backseat sweat?...


To be honest, I'm amazed these morons upstairs can smell anything past the stench of their own smugness.

This company has truly "jumped the shark" (look it up if unsure). It's a lost cause, and i'm glad i'm almost done. What a pathetic excuse of an airline. I am truly sorry for those of us remaining who have tied the futures of themselves and their families to this sad excuse of a company.
