Exactly the point.....CX is no longer important to Beijing. Wake up and smell the coffee guys.

CX has never been important to Beijing. In fact, just the opposite. They are an embarrassing colonial leftover that Beijing want gone.
Time is running out for CX.

Back in 1946 CXi was very important to Beijing. It was the only way to get guns, drugs and prossies to the West.

So you think that Hong Kong Government should be pennywise and pound foolish and only consider declared retraining costs.

Not at all, I am pointing out that your outburst was completely factually incorrect. The recent transfers to the 747 have nothing whatsoever to do with redundant KA pilots.

Hardly an 'outburst' , merely a statement of fact. KA was demolished because KA had the greater proportion of local pilots. Now Swire is trying to justify that decision by talking about costs. It is sad that Hong Kong Government appears to still have very little aviation knowledge and so continues to follow the Swire Line, just like it has done since the beginning of aviation in Hong Kong.

KA was axed because it had a greater proportion of local pilots?

Get a grip.

This time the lady who made the visa call was working in Transportation bureau and CAD before. She know the operation of airlines and wouldn’t be fooled, hopefully.

This argument is completely academic. As long as the HK government keeps these ridiculous and illogical quarantine rules, there will be no HK aviation industry to be scrapping over.
And with all these variants developing and the governments lack of appetite for risk, HK remains virtually closed for the future and its aviation industry

Even more academic if this is true.

Oh dear! And without a proper seniority system in POS18 (which was their cunning plan all along), itís gonna be OPEN SEASON come 1st of June.

The lucky few who moved to the 400, good on ya.
For the rest of the 777 drivers, and a few bus ones: thatís the Fat Lady you hear singing

CNN, Bloomberg, The South China Post, HongKong Coconuts.

You get one try...

One is not like all the others, can you pick which one it is?

I think you are either missing the gist of my post, or going on a political tangent.

Opera. The final act. As generally sung by a lady of Rubenesque proportions.

“It ain’t over ‘til the fat lady sings”, used to be the favourite saying of the esteemed Leon Richardson, who, in his time, gave such excellent financial advice to us on RTHK Radio 3. I wonder what would be his financial advice now. Anyway, thanks guys for the input about the fat lady. I too could never find a reference about this fat lady until now.

It would have been “ your best loss is your first loss”
That was one of his favourites.
