Does the govt really think putting crew in a hotel for 2 weeks is going to bring the covid numbers down?

That’s the point. They neither care nor think about the implications to aircrew. Knee jerk reactions to
the slightest of ill informed non empirical advice.
Still it’s a nice way of getting rid of that pesky gweiloh airline and letting CZ or China Southern steam in.

Agree, Carol. useless.

Globo. But why would a government first invest billions in an airline and then deliberately destroy it?

And btw yes, A Gweilow airline, run by Gweilows operating in a Chinese city is bad optics.

Cathay has stakeholders from all over the world, China, Qatar, public stocks, and the HK government... Augustus is not a Gweilo..
Agree regarding political economics, might be just that, a government demonstrating they try..

That is the million dollar question. Or 22 Billion dollar question. I see the long arm of our friends to the North in this.
Deliriously happy to be proved wrong of course.

So will CX get enough ‘volunteers’ for this?

Would anyone actually be willing to put their health on the line for a company that has done nothing but take from the pilots?

Surely there would have to be some incentive for the people who sign up.

I mean, if people had more common sense and the rich dude didn't illegally quarantine on his yatch, inviting his dance cluster mum or grandmum, whatever it is; or if the mainland prostitute didn't stay in HK illegally and worked while asymptomatic, there wouldn't be a fourth wave. The Singapore Hong Kong bubble would have gone ahead, air crew would still be exempted from hotel quarantine.

The govt policies don't make sense, but it seems like people don't take it seriously enough to want to bring back a normal life. Why are people still meeting up for barbecues and hanging out in large groups indoors? Does this not defeat the 2 people in public rule and social distancing purpose? And why are schools and beaches shut but crowded new year flower markets going ahead?

CP management have been nothing short of pathetic in supporting their staff through this pandemic and heads should roll. The way this is being handled with absolutely no respect and in clear violation of human rights (quarantine torture!) is downright criminal! It would not be unreasonable to think that Beijing is working on bringing down CP to achieve a very cheap acquisition for mainland China!!

She’s obviously been told to get cases down to zero or single digits. So that out border to the North can open. Where they, of course, have no cases.
BTW, I have a nice piece of investment property in Belarus to sell you. Excellent development potential. Only trace elements of caesium, xenon etc. discernible.

There's never an incentive.
They said to freight crew they'd pay them another months salary if they signed to POS18 and work a certain average number of hours before April. Crew signed only to after have everyone work below that average number so they don't get paid.
Not the first time CX has deceived their staff?

Why not lockdown whole city with strict curfew and going out only allowed with papers and permits? One month of this and you see cases back to single digit. Why drag on?

against human rights

The UN human rights carta states that it is a human right to work. For exercising my human right a government would like to put me in solitary confinement. No, I have not committed a crime. We are serving the Hongkong people, no matter if I was born here or not. The people of Hongkong need the things that we fly in. So show us some respect, because we spend already lots of time in solitary confinement. It is not a one way street, we give but you HK government you have to give something back.

putting Augustus there makes it a non Gweilo airline?

Actually the bail out billions is not mainland money but HK treasury money -think about that.

Carol : the scenario you paint is what we have here in Cyprus. Cases have dropped. I just wonder if by being locked up, curfewed, paper permits etc meant that the numbers available to be tested went down (rhetoric) and of course claims of successful strategy would abound. We then move forward to the NWO. Easy.

7 week cycles to start on 15 Feb perhaps? 70 hours spread over 2 months, always under 46.67.

It's really exciting to be let in limbo about the quarantine, adds a bit of spice
