One billion saved - job done

In the flawed logic of the CX ivory towers;
Everytime five hundred pilots walk out the door ( less than two year's worth) we have saved ( but really cost) 1 billion HKD.

Can you imagine how much money we will save with no pilots?

Its like all the money were saving from having the average jet utilisation go down from 16.5 hours to 11 per day.
But were not parking them.......

An ex CEO of BA once suggested he could make more money for the company by not flying any aircraft and making BA a "virtual airline". That same idiot went on to sell BA's low cost airline 'Go' for one pound !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An ex CX DFO suggested we rountinely shutdown one engine during the cruise to save money ( 4 engined aircraft only ). He later left after flipping a Tristar on it's back on the way down to Port Moresby then running naked thru first class some months later.

Did the said Tristar contain passengers at the time?

Efficiency Savings

Perhaps the good old days were better. Have you heard the one about the 747 Base Training flight recently that took 11 hours to do 2 landings.....apparently nobody had preauthorised the circuits at Clark in the Philippines!
