Yes. Quite a few as it happens. Jumbo obv not the best fleet to apply from. Despite having taken a hell
of a caning over at least 18 months.

I can see no point in keeping anyone under the current circumstances who has applied for VSS.

I can.

The VSS was merely a charade to satisfy the 2 govt officials on the board, HK public etc in pretending to be a “responsible, caring, sharing company”.
A circus act.

Their real intension is to get rid of all non PR/non citizen expats - as per Beijing’s memo to Augustus, passed onto Debs.

Good luck to all, this is the way

Can't fault your logic Curry. (Apart from the fact that those already refused VSS include non PR/non citizen expats)

Yes please thank you. As I said, refuse VSS only to make them redundant anyway when OPEN SEASON starts on 1 June.

Why pay 6 months when you can get away with 3.

These bean counters with their MBA and fancy qualifications are way too smart for any pilot, save a few clever ones who took the bait last year during round 1

When I was at HSBC in Cathay City, just after the millennium, there was a cx Captain enquiring about something to do with his salary and wether it was in his account .
The amount that I overheard was $375000 . That was just for one month . I was gobsmacked . What a Her was me earning a measly 100k a month.

When he left the bank, I thought about following him and sorting him out . However I turned the other cheek, and ran off to my tung Chung hell hole .

Whiners

Fact of life, no matter where you go, there's always someone whining about they want what someone else has "without" putting in the time or effort as everyone else has done.. Go cry to your mommy then go back down to her basement !!

Banga, plus one from me. I know of several professions in HK who make that kind of money after 25 years in the business.

I sense a green eye from those who have not yet done the hard yards.

yup well aware of what's going on thanks, just curious why June 1st? From recent events FRA for example it seems management don't advertise when in advance they will do something. So again I ask why June 1st? If you have inside knowledge then please speak up!

Envy and resentment of others. Always a guaranteed pathway to mediocrity and failure...

Nothing special about june 1st, July 1st etc or something in between. But the writing has been on the wall about no visa renewals for months now. Anyone still in denial must get their head checked. And please don't say what the company or hk government said etc.... Cathay and hk government are known best and foremost for lying about everything for time immemorial.
