Lead from the front

From the article...

Singapore Airlines CEO Goh Choon Phong has gone further, taking a 15 per cent pay cut from March 1.

No don’t, because then he will ask the rest of the staff to take a pay cut with him!

And so the demise of this "once" "great" airline has began.
Can it be saved? This lies on the shoulders of those who run the business.
So what would you do if you were one of them?

Best case scenario for CX “Management” would be to get rid of all the pilots. The resultant “Airline” would be so much easier to administer. Next step would be to sell all the aircraft and change the name to Cathay Pacific Bottlers or something similar.
That would put the overpaid bus drivers back in their box eh?
