PPRuNe Management please take note.
Run along Trafalgar and wash your mouth with some Fragrant Harbour Water.

How is shagging a camel racists?
If a suggestion to shag a sheep was put fourth, would that be racists? Both imply only a certain group engages in such activities. It could be possible that many cultures enjoy shagging sheep and camels. For you to suggest otherwise makes you a racists!

Flying Nun. Traf was a hair stylist in a previous life. As you know, 'shag' is a form of hair style. He was suggesting you go and spend some time giving a camel a new hairstyle. You know, "be kind to camel week". I see by your username that you may be somewhat 'repressed', so it is easy to see how you misconstrued his comment. Easily done.

Good heavens.

These knucklehead newly posting shills can’t even troll on the internet properly.

Hey Nun — fwiw if you haven’t figured it out yet the first one to yell racist has usually lost the point long ago. Doesn’t work.

Maybe we really ARE losing money.

Lol....thanks for the help at clarification guys. It's obvious that the Nun is somewhat sensitive. She can throw out the insults, but not so good at taking them. An example of the liberal left at their finest. I'll get back to hairstyling soon enough once i've left CX, which, when you read the Nun's list you can start to appreciate why most of us planning on the same.

Flying Nun. You scream hysterically that what Traf had to say was 'offensive' and 'racist', yet you are quite happy to copy and paste the quote to make sure it's seen by even more people. Obviously you think it isn't really that offensive after all. Or, by your own admission and actons, YOU are being racist by promoting said quote. At least Traf had enough courtesy to respond to your bruised sensitivities by amending the quote. (and btw, shag is a hairstyle, a rug, a form of dance, and yes, even a form of physical interaction. Get over it).

FN, for all your hysterical bleatings (oops, sorry, that would imply sheep, er...never mind), you started this by attacking the motives and issues of the CX pilots. You must get a hell of a tan in the desert, considering how 'thin-skinned' you obviously must be.

If your house has got termites and you don't do anything about it your house will eventually fall down. You can't see them but you know they are there eating away at the very fabric of everything that you have built up over decades of hard work by many of the best pilots the airline industry has had . This once proud airline if management do not do something about it soon will be left in ruins. Please I am not a management troll or even a Nazi as these gentlemen have accused me of being just an retired old CX captain who finds it hard to sit back and watch this happening . Evidently they don't want to be here but they won't resign so CX now is the time to act if you know who these termites are can you please call in the exterminators??

You know the old house could do with a paint she's not looking as good as I'd like but I've been retired for over 10 years now and don't have the spare cash I used to have ?Maybe in in a couple of years if I don't take that cruise we were planning I might use the money and get the place painted. I've lived in this place for a long time now and she might not be looking too good at the moment but at least I know the foundations are solid and we don't have termites . No the wife and I won't be going anywhere we love this place through good times and not so good times?

"...i'm not management..., just a 10 yr retired skipper..." haha, you need to give it a rest mate. You are a complete management troll. If you had been around this past 20yrs or so you would have had far more than 10 posts on PPRuNe. Further, your reaction says everything we need to know about who you are. To attack Traf, and not the management certifies that you are management. Any pilot (retired or otherwise) would know that everything Traf (and others) says is the unadulterated truth. You are as transparent as a piece of crystal. As BusyB say, the management are the termites. They have corroded the airline from the inside out. The pilots are the ONLY group of employees who have kept their integrity and professionalism intact. At least they are not corrupt, venal and incompetent. Report back to your superiors that we are done with playing the game by their rules. The vast majority of us are looking for employment with companies that will treat us with a modicum of respect. It's not even about the money, but honesty and stability (never mind living back home and giving our families a proper, healthy environment to grow and enjoy). You and your self-centered cronies have pushed this one step too far, and now you will suffer the consequences. Good luck with crewing the aircraft the next few years. And doubly good luck with your holiday operational planning. Aircraft don't fly themselves. However, the operation would continue to function if every management cretin stayed home.

Dan. xpdr777 did not 'leave' 10 years ago. He's a management troll. No pilot would make the comments that he has.

No, I don't accept abjectly being lied to. And you (and your management colleagues) are prime examples of that. The real problem of course is the institutional arrogance of the Swire management model, that deludes them into thinking that they can forever pull the wool over the eyes of their employees. Eventually, you become so used to lying that you don't even realise you are doing it anymore. That is the situation with our management (and you) in the present era. Even more amazing is your propensity to keep digging a deeper hole. I'll go and find you a bigger shovel.

I can't speak for management but I'm not a liar . This will be my last post maybe for another 10 years you can't keep bashing your head against a brick wall and leave yourself open to personal abuse by people . I still believe the majority of CX pilots are honest good hard working people who want this to be resolved asap so they can get on with their lives. Those who are planning on leaving please do and you never know the grass mightn't be as green on the other side as you thought??To those left standing here CX has been through many crise's in the past and they will get through this one as well!

I’m guessing that your “this will be my last post for another 10 years” comment will prove to be another lie. You cant help yourselves. As mentioned: it’s institutional.

Hmm... It's rare that a person in his 60s (presumably) uses an apostrophe to (attempt to) pluralize crisis. Usually, this is the mark of someone younger. I smell a troll.

....and the ‘grass’ is only one colour at CX. Burnt brown. Like the air in HK. It was only the money that kept people in CX. Other than the locals , you will very soon learn that rule of nature, as the exodus begins in earnest. (And not even the locals, many of whom are at least going to leave for HKA).

The Airbus 'Baguette' newsletter is renowned for its 'grocer's apostrophes'. Must be a 'mangement' thing.
