Why would people quit the AOA if RF got in again as chairman? I think it would be good to have a capable person in as chairman. Not like the previous muppet and temp chap in now.

About 5 minutes (literally) after the company states they have no plans to extend guys who took bpp and RA55, guess what? An avalanche of junior captains cross the ban and join training in the hope they can get an extension past 55.

Sad if the timing wasn’t so obvious.

Sadly, I don't believe there will be a positive outcome for any pilot depending on CX for a career that will be free of stress, disappointment and ultimately, regret. They will wish they never came to this dysfunctional, dystopian place. The only real choices are to endure a career of the above, or to leave and establish yourselves with an employer back home (as an example, SW 737 Captains make more than CX Captains, and they have a pension, healthcare and are in control over their lives, and that's just one example of many). There is no longer any reason to believe that CX management will wake up one day and realise they "have got it all wrong". In fact, they are now beginning to double down on localising the airline and dissipating the remaining expat benefits. Anyone 45 and under that has other options...you will certainly regret not taking them.

I might be wrong but I think mole was referring specifically to a pilot's career with CX. However, I do take your point that many careers may well be measured by the degree of stress, disappointment and ultimately, regret that they might bring. I suppose a question might be: does one have the intestinal fortitude to do anything about it other than bemoan one's perceived plight?

ANy comparison to any other job/profession that doesn’t have recognition of prior experience through the often manipulated and arcane seniority system is completely invalid.
