Silly fools. This is the end game. Some douchebags who volunteer will find themselves alone in the EAST, hoping, believing, when the COMPANY shuts down. Guaranteed.

They'll be like the Japanese soldiers left on isolated remote outpost islands still fighting the war long after it was over. Front desk calling the room : "ummm sir/miss... we need you to vacate the room soon... cathay seized to exist a while ago... ummm... anyone missing a red stapler?"

Goes to show just how bad POS18 is that anyone is even considering volunteering for the prison patterns.

With such a low base pay and a significant portion of income from hourly pay guys will unsafely work when fatigued and / or sick and that would be in normal times.

Now the chump change offered for days in EAST (a swire property) is seen as enough to sell oneself.

The CX managers have out kunted themselves this time around.

Have any of you volunteers considered that your prison time is compulsory and completely non-negotiable? How will you feel if you are unfortunate enough to have a compassionate family emergency during your jail time? You think the company/ government will allow you to leave HK to be with your family?
I am not willing to take the chance.

Jesus, why does EVERY discussion have to end in a blame game? We all have our individual motives, different life situations, financial obligations etc. The guy volunteering is not the enemy! When I hear now guys going at this fleet or that base, 777 guys should do this, Airbus that, freighter agains pax, locals vs non-locals etc, it's such a travesty. All this in-fights are completely unnecessary. Plus strangely it is always the choice of OTHERS that is wrong, funny isn't it? Let him or her volunteer if they must, it's an individual choice, why always be so patronizing??? We all have our individual motives, each and everyone of us, no exception. But instead: " It's a no-brainer, they don't know what they are doing, they are naive, it's not enough money, snowflakes.." bla bla bla. Always the same tirade. Always the other is the idiot, never me.

I actually hope enough will volunteer so I don't have to do it!!

Sometimes an offer to volunteer is just an offer to volunteer. Not in your world of constant conspiracies and dark power of course, I am talking about the real world.

Sam, absolutely not promoting a secret evil. Just calling you out on who you are. Stand (T FU) or not.

It’s only allowing them to extend any measures until September 30th if required.

Before the bat flu pandemic, they were still measuring temperatures on arrival at HKIA... 18 years after SARS.

That doesn't bode well for the hangover we're going to have from this debacle.

Because SARS and MERS still exist and will continue to do so. Her misguided policy of attempting zero cases, whilst screwing up the vaccine implementation, is what will bring us all down. And yes, an almighty economic hangover.

Thanks for the condescending attitude.

ANYWAY, that is extremely vague and doesn’t give much credence to the rumors. It just gives the option of extending the quarantine for certain persons (which is who exactly?!) through Sept 30.

Extend they will. They have form. And we are the 'certain persons' ... the evil aircrew.

Allegedly CX has carried out 17,000 tests on staff, with 4 cases. Mind bogglingly low numbers. But hey, you can't beat a good scapegoat, especially when it's a million dollar moron. The mistake they made is assuming we're still million dollar morons - that ship has sailed, so the bucket of severely outweighs the bucket of money now.

Bye bye hkg.
