No doubt everyone would have received the message this morning regarding the HKIA entry requirement for staff come August 1st. I would like to personally thank all of those who are refusing the vaccine for the jump up in my seniority number (not that it exists). I feel this is a good decision for the airport to have made.

Yet most of the HKIA staff, many of who have direct contact with incoming passengers, are still refusing to get vaccinated. How many CX ground/office staff are vaccinated? I’m guessing it’s so low that they don’t even want so show the stats.

I’m 100% Certain Danny is on the emailing list! 🤣

On another note, thanks for the update GH, I like the fact that within the space of 12 months I’ve been offered a follow/sign/do or get fired directive.

I support this 100%. Good riddance if you still don't want it!

I agree, cause we know the government has nothing but your best interests in mind. They where spot on in grounding all passenger flights, can’t have a virus roaming about that kills off 210 people in 1.5 years. Much better to destroy all major industries and save those precious lives. Couldn’t agree more.

The fact that only half the population on average is getting vaccinated should not be a deterrent. We should happily exclude half the market out there, good riddance! We will be able to move pilots around much better, that’s what really counts. We don’t need those pesky passengers. With .25 PX credit we can profitably just move 100% vaccinated crew around the world.

Hopefully, our wise subject matter experts on this virus will apply such sound logic to the flu and common cold. Just imagine, that’s another 200-300 lives saved.

Feels good to have such wise leaders driving the boat through such challenging times. 👍

Surely the benefits of being C19 vaccinated are clear enough to the public and company employee who wish to travel. We are not talking about foolish people here, far from it.

What might those benefits be? Not sure it is that clear. Still can’t travel without quarantine, especially if you have children. Still have to live in this prison state, wearing your muzzle.

Only 20% fully vaccinated in HKG, so clearly the majority of people don’t see the benefit. How many crew would have vaccinated without the continuous threats to their livelihood? Most have also vaccinated in the hope that their commuting/travel lifestyle can return to normal as well. Yet here we are.

Still not sure why the push to inject this experimental vaccine for a slightly deadlier flu (for elderly and frail). The death rate for children from COVID is lower than the regular flu, yet they still try to push this onto children.

Sorry, not an anti-Vaxer, have all my established vaccines and so do my children. So much for not allowing governments to tell you what to do to your body. I’m sure this will end well.

I had not realised such a small percentage of HK residents were vaccinated. That is a serious issue considering the status as a world trade hub
This moment, HK Gov has banned British visitors and classed the UK as Very High Risk, due to the delta strain of Cov19.
Very hard on family.

nightmare and unconscionable given the 21 day quarantine and serial testing

Neighbour is desperately trying to get his boarding school aged son back from the UK before the Thursday deadline, got the ticket but no hotel quarantine available. Even the Landmark Mandarin at over HKD5,000 per night is full.

Vaccination rates per day seem to be going up, and anecdotally I hear of people who were anti are going for the jab now. Maybe the lotto givaways are working!

Latest figures 32% double dose, 21% one dose. Woefully low but slowly improving.

Brand new account asking that? Sounds like one of Dannys mates. Full QT exemption for all flights... Doubt it, this is HK.

Tell your neighbour to get his son to anywhere in Mainland China, do your quarantine there and you are then allowed into HK. You can either use Mainland or Taiwan, but I would use Mainland.

Oli, it is worth looking at but I was not aware that non mainland residents can land in China from Europe right now.

I'll let him know and he can research it, thanks.
