If you are talking about job security.. if it was going to happen it would of happened already. Everyone was saying it will happen after the introduction of COS18 when seniority protections were removed, well COS18 has been in place for a while now and it hasn’t. The longer it is left the closer to the end of the pandemic we get, airlines are already starting to recall pilots.
If you are talking about people leaving for non existent greener pastures. Well there aren’t any and there will be big queues of laid off pilots who will have to get their jobs back before any openings will exist. Maybe in 5-10 years time, but who will want to rejoin the bottom of a new seniority list with all the insecurities and low salary that would bring.

MANY people have left (including the Airbus DCP), with no job to return to in their home countries. Clearly the prospect of lower wages & higher taxation in their home countries isn't a deterrent! Better to be poor at home, than in HK .... particularly with the changing political landscape.

What Veruka Salt said. More to leave, too. That’s not to say they won’t easily be replaced, at least in the short/medium term. However, for being based in one of the world’s most expensive cities the “good gig” is well and truly gone, especially when the transition period ends.

In the order of a Captain a day right now. So, indeed, watch this space. I donít think the prospect of having your kids banged up, whilst restrained to a bed and wearing diapers for days on end, is helping very much.

There are so many on SLV right now, collecting a small company pay check, with no intentions of ever coming back to HK. Lots have fully moved their family and belongings back home, even settling their kids in new schools. Some even have new jobs. My own family has become quite comfortable being back home while I sit here in the ‘loop’ staring out endlessly from the headland. The company is in for a surprise, but then I doubt they really care.

The interesting ones are the ladies and gents that have left with an expired work visa with no intention to return. I understand they are still getting paid.

Good for them! You've got to milk this cow for all it's worth.

It'll be game over for Cathay in the next few months. Those who hesitate.... (rhymes with hesitate).

don’t be irresponsible and let your kid end up with COVID then. CHP said they are only restraining kids with their parents consent and its for their own safety. Much better then having the kid fall off the bed or wander off and get injured. Let’s not forget we are in the middle of a pandemic. Hospitals are struggling to cope around the world and conditions are not much better (if at all) in the western world.

Things are fine and dandy where I am. My state (in the US) hasn't been locked down since last summer and in deaths per 1M population we rank 27th out of 50. Most of the "lockdown" states are in the top 15 in terms of death per 1M. In the US serious and critical cases currently account for a whopping .13% of total active cases. Even during the winter peak before vaccinations that was only .5% of cases. So hospitals here aren't struggling to cope, and not in the UK either. Europe, having managed to stuff up vaccinations with EU politics, is apparently suffering another wave. But even there the highest number I could find was .61% serious or critical in Italy. They will eventually get the vaccines sorted and that number will plummet. The world will move on as HKG sits in quarantine.

Your kid catching covid is not necessarily caused by any irresponsible behaviour, many have been caught out by pure bad luck.

It’s even easier to be considered a “close contact”: all it takes is for anyone (teacher, other student, cleaner) to test positive in your kid’s class and bingo! Close contact. Off to quarantine your child goes, whatever the age, no questions asked.

Quite right Maindog. Best mate in Cyprus tells me of schools opening. Quick upsurge in + tests ( have a look at the testing, I say,) but classes closed the very next day. More inept handling causing absolute mayhem and very annoyed parents. All part of the agenda I am afraid. Control, isolate, confuse, anger. All working just fine eh ?

Ha ha ha ha. Imagine being this pathetic, making excuses for this deplorable treatment. Get some dignity man.

Well said. Perhaps we should chain up this individual ( purely for his own safety of course) and provide him with a set of incontinence pants. Changed every 5 days whether it’s required or not. Just so that he doesn’t irresponsibly catch Covid.
Lets not dress this up in any other way than it is. A CHP running unchecked and unbridled over every last vestige of civil Liberty. And decency.

As long as his family has been made aware, it’s totally ok right?!
