He asked me my ideas and suggestion for his brother, will be better go and fly on a 777/350 based in Honk Kong or stay home and join SAA? I told him that I don't have all the right information to give a suggestion for his brother future career, and I was thinking if you guys can say something about it; the guy's girlfriend would join him in HK and she already found a job there, no kids, he has an ATPL and about 2000hrs TT and never flew a jet...
If it was me I would go to HK without hesitation, but I'm famous to be quite irrational
IMHO there is no contest, go for SAA. Not that many yarpies enjoyed HK it seems, even in the good old days.

I heard yesterday that Cathay recruitment is on hold and previously accepted applicants are getting "due to changing market conditions" letters. Can anyone confirm this ?
