It is the middle of November and the bidding system for next years leave has not even been opened yet. Hence the rumour that the DFO has unilaterally cancelled leave.

Leave cannot be unilaterally cancelled, or even waived by mutual agreement. Every company in HKG is obligated to provide a minimum of two calendar weeks leave to all employees.
While AT is an incarnation of The Wicked Witch of the West, this is one thing she and her legions of flying monkeys are unable to do.

But they could just give us all the statutory 2 weeks then, instead of 6...

Read your CoS. It clearly states the number of days you are entitled to each calendar year, the (limited) circumstances in which you might receive less, and the time limit on it being given. Leave NTC normally comes out late Nov/early Dec.

It was an attempt at humour; a one, an attempt nonetheless.

In the same vein as 'the beatings shall continue until the morale improves'... thought-evoking and callously accurate ! - empathy towards my (many long-serving) CX comrades...

...no, sick rates will go up dis-proportionally. (and in conjunction with the resignation rates, also going up dis-proportionally). This lot never learn.

The General said 'cheer up lads things could always be worse' so the lads cheered up and sure enough things got worse.

I also know of several (which means there are many) individuals who are waiting so see if the 13th month arrives as it should. If not, then that will 'seal the deal' as far as their plans on leaving. And I think you can count on hundreds of cabin and grounds staff as well. Needless to say, paying it to our colleagues at KA, and the bases (incorporated into their salaries) without paying it to those in HK will just reinforce why this company does not deserve to retain the competent and experienced staff that they are taking advantage of. Corporate greed is taking this company to the place it belongs: the trash heap.

Traf, you are the only thing that belongs on the trash heap, you rich, selfish, greedy, old bugger. You have taken lots of money for working for CX as an A Scale and in C&T.

Cathay Pacific is a great airline that is going through a painful time but to confine the airline and all the wonderful people who work here to the trash heap is beneath contempt. Please leave as you demand of everyone else. Please find another hobby where you can whinge, whine, complain to your hearts content.
