New potential entrant: Greater Bay Airlines

Picked up this on SCMP this morning: https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/...airlines-seeks

A bold initiative - I wonder what they think gives them an angle against CX/UO? Other than perhaps a discounted market for second hand aircraft at the moment.

AKA Crony Capitalism. Only time will tell if the fix is in... At this rate, there might not be much left of CX by the time this pandemic madness ends.

Hope everyone has taken a good long look at their finances. It is going to be COS18 for everyone!
Maybe the guys that don't accept the ERS will wish they did.

You are right Lamb Chop. Recently I’ve been finding myself ask “How would the guys from Donghai Airlines do this”

You may well be right, but I wouldn’t bank my satisfaction, smugness and (if it matters on PPRuNe) reputation on it.

75 is giddy at the thought of all the expats being on the same shite contract as (insert appropriate pronoun). Then, maybe 75 will feel like a real pilot, but I doubt it because everyone knows (insert appropriate pronoun) is NOT!
