Time to log off, clock off and off! Best gig in town, whilst it lasted, anyway.

Sorry this forum title says- 'is for professional pilots based with airlines in HKG', if your unemployed can you bugger off. Not our fault you failed your Cathay application and went to dDagon instead. As they say, you made your bed

just like having an AME approved by CAD in YVR for Canadian crews and exactly the following week announce the closure of Canadian bases...
seriously?... when there is no comms , the comms that finally are given are ridiculous.

Look on the bright side, with all the CX pilots having time on their hands, cures for cancer, the common cold, and the ending of world hunger will be done lickety split!

Guys I am surprised especially if you have been in Cathay for more than 5 mins.

We do not operate like a normal airline, flight ops managers are not real managers they are the mouthpiece for the real managers and puppeteers behind the scenes lurking in the shadows. Who for whatever reason do not step into the cold light of day. Often those on the 3rd floor are only there because they are required for AOC/regulatory reasons they do not have a say in things and quite often are only privy to information 5 mins before us minions. I'm not trying to be nasty or disrespectful about the guys & girls on the third floor it is just the way it is, they will even tell you as much.

Agree while it’s easy to attack the 3rd floor they aren’t the ones that make the decisions they are simply the messengers. Crewing decisions are way above FOPs.

3rd floor accept the jobs and take the perks. They deserve no consideration at all.

What someone else said: Only if you don’t have at least 100k followers on social media.

Come FLY with me, let’s fly away!
