I can only hope that these guys/girls post on the greener grass post heading the fragrant harbour and also post back to the AOA, it's time the union looked after it's pilots including those who can leave, the more information the better.

New campaign open until end of Jan, including direct entry onto 350 and 380...

ďThis recruitment campaign is for pilots that currently operate the Airbus A319/A320/A321, A330, A340, A350 and A380. You must have a valid rating on an Airbus with a minimum of 500 hours on type. To be considered for the A350 or A380 you will need 1500 hours on an aircraft that satisfies ZFT with 500 hours on type.Ē

There will be a 777/787 campaign also, we need 600 pilots in next 2 years apparently. Good luck to those applying.

6 CX pilots left for BA out of 3000 pilots in CX, 0.0000000000001% turnover. The floodgates are open, CX management are quaking in their shoes.
94% said they were looking for work elsewhere in the AOA survey, 7 left in November.
The grass is greener everywhere else, would lots more leave FFS instead of just talking about it so my T & C can get better.

Hundreds quit in December, apparently. Iím guessing 4 actually left. Letís see AOA number for member resignations.

MC, you are right. There is not a resignation problem in CX. Everyone is happy. No one is applying to other airlines, no one is interviewing, no one is awaiting course dates. CX is such a better career prospect than BA, QA, VS, LH, AF etc... I'm sure all the pilots on the roster this month will still be here the same time next year. We worship the ground you and your fellow CX/Swire managers walk on. We are SO lucky to work for such a fine group of superior management.

Just in case it helps, BA are in Abu Dhabi next week. I know its still a long way from HKG, but not as far as LHR.
Apparently, if you register online you can complete stage 1 on the day, and then stage 2 via Skype interview, meaning you only have to get back to the UK for the sim assessment.
Please register attendance via https://bapilotrecruitment.eventbrite.co.uk
Actively recruiting for all fleets. Beware though, the grass isn't always greener.

Bet BA can't wait to interview the bunch of spoilt brats CX has cultivated for themselves. Pure toxicity.
Stay where you belong.

I think if you look in pure monetary terms the package would be less. However, in terms of quality of life, it may well represent a good move for anyone wanting to move back to Europe.

Let me see; Uniform to sim vs control over your life, real staff travel, real labor laws, good medical benefits, can actually bid for leave ahead of time etc. etc.... ???

Gee, now that's hard one !!

A firm grasp of the irrelevant. You must be a CX Captain, Australian, or both.

Just one thing about BA. They no longer use Bidline for their rosters. They have a new crew management system produced by Jeppesen - cant think of the name right now! Bids are on seniority and new guys get what's left.

Sounds awesome, why doesn't CX invest in that technology?
