From the July Boeing Newsletter: Reserve Duties: This month we had three incidents where crew reported unfit for duty after being called out from reserve. Crews are reminded that they are required to call Crew Operations and declare that they are unfit for reserve duties before the reserve period commences. Calling unfit after the callout, in one case only 1:14 prior to sign on is not acceptable and can lead to delays and disruption which is not in our customer’s best interests

I'll tell you another thing that is "not in our customers best interests". That is being coerced into working a flight while unfit, as per the intimidation inherent in our Fleet newsletter. This place descends closer to hell each and every day.

The Boeing July Newsletter in question still remains available via the FOP Weekly Update: 4 July 2018 link, however, it has now been edited with the comment on Reserve Duties having been deleted.

I wonder if there will be a clarification forthcoming that the CP may have "misspoke".

Misspoke? No, simply a reflection of the management's attitude towards their staff: stuff the law, we'll do what we want. ( and most of us have downloaded and copied the original)

History is replete with examples of "functionaries" that do the bidding of evil. It has always been the case. Every company has a coterie of sycophants who sell their character and integrity out for their own personal gain. CX has been riddled with such people since the early 90's. I can assure you that the current crop have all had the "interview", whereupon they had to confirm their willingness to sell out the best interests of their professional colleagues, to secure their own personal gain. The newsletters by our CP the past two months firmly prove that our current management have drunk from the poisoned chalice of Swire mendacity. Basically, our new CP should be ashamed at his intro into his position. You have shredded any credibility you may have brought with you. Shame. Shame. Shame.

Just checked the CX website. The July newsletter has been deleted from the list of available newsletters. Hmmm...

Traf as always on topic however let's not forget, regarding all the latest debacles, just who's in charge...

This group in its entirety are the latest "functionaries" anointed in their "leadership" positions as a result of "Project Altitude" And they're new on the job so we can only expect more of the same..

Traf, as a frequent CX flyer in the past, I have followed Fragrant Harbour with interest and dismay, watching what has happened to my once favourite airline. Your line above is the best I have read - erudite, succinct and to the point.

Surprised they’d put that in print.

Well, maybe not all THAT surprised.

When you are a manager or supervisor, it is often wise to choose ones words carefully and take the opportunity not to say something that doesn’t need said.
