umm sorry Lionsgate I saw the underbelly in '94 and watched it unfold that by the time I hit the 49ers I had become unionised and militant not just this company but basically the corporate culture that has grown over the last 25 years everywhere in the world.

I grew up anti union....I wanted to be in management having started my working career as a manager trainee before flying but watching this sniveling cowardly bunch do anything for a bonus and the next step.... up i opted out and just flew.

Now its at the point this airline is a real joke....its a fact that its not the airline to come to and this social media policy is just a another finger in the dyke by the retarded management to keep it together till their next bonus and get out of here.

When you start shooting the messengers that are trying to inform you of a different world you are on the slippery slope like most dictators....someone will replace you and you will get discarded quite horribly. But they dont get why we inform them we have issues. They want us compliant...but the actual nature of our positions is even the lowest Second officer sees something untoward on a flight deck they will say something and as Captains, even prideful ones, we are all human that have the potential to make mistakes and will recognize and respond in an effort to be safe.

Our current managers couldnt be humble even if you rewarded them a 10 year bonus. They will happily fly into that proverbial mountain no matter how many are screaming at them to turn.

What about a pilot video recording himself giving cockpit tutorials, showing off diff parts and equipment of a CX cargo plane, posting company routine and information on Instagram - is this legal or covered by social media policy? I would think recording how a cx 747 flightdeck functions and posting it public online is against company regulations! Am I right or wrong? If this is legal, then everyone of us could film ourselves starting our planes, giving tours of our bunks, showing the world how we get ready from the hotel and so on.... Esp this pilot has more than 5000 followers online, could this be a breach? If its a breach, can someone advice this guy before he gets into deep trouble?

I lived in HKG 1991-1992 and CX was the airline of standard. I have read so many threads here on the polarization of the front line versus management. Seems another showcase of the American lines, except the American lines started in-fighting first and have returned to pretty decent profitability after 20 years. Hopefully something will give but Cathay now reminds me of Eastern Airlines and the toxic management - employee relationship that brought down that carrier. Wishing CA/KA employees the best.

The one thing holding this shambles together is salary...they will attack it in due course and that will be the incentive to move on. I live for the day they actually come up with an innovative original idea that shows some leadership ... were they at the back of the class at managers school flicking snot balls?

Soul planet , the individual that you refer to is a complete narcissist , constantly posting photos and videos online . Any number of pictures are taken at airports during his walk arounds . I just hope that he pays as much attention to his walk around as he does to taking selfies . But I was under the impression that taking photos at a large number of airports was forbidden

Just don’t post there. I have an account so I can read all the keyboard warriors blowing off steam in front of management, exactly as designed. These morons don’t realize that management set this up exactly for that purpose. This way they know exactly who is thinking what and when. Personally, I’d rather they didn’t know. We are a collective and the only opinion / action that matters is the one coming from us all, unless you wish to resign from the company or training. My two cents...
