This shows your total UN-PROFESSIONALISM. Feel free to go somewhere you feel more “friendly”.

"also a requirement to donate 10 dollars to the sunnyside club for every time 'it's how we did things in dragon' is uttered"

I could be wrong but I suspect the ex KA blokes that 'may' have uttered those words won't be the ones who would even consider returning for the recent CX invitation. Most people I'm talking to wont' even be replying to the email... KA is gone. Good whilst it lasted. Given the new terms and conditions at CX, one might consider it gone as well. CX in name only from here on.

I don’t think ex KA “chips” are bigger than CX pilots’ “chips” in this particular environment.

The old ways of the boys always come out. "Back in XXXX" is a term heard in every country from the old disgruntled captains who lost the cruisy overpaid lifestyles. The best one I heard was from an old Oasis Pilot here in HK still reliving his days "Back in British Caledonian". How dare they try and change him. I know the Austronauts have the "Back in Ansett" gents everywhere as well.

These old ideals don't always translate as a good thing. Experience gained is one thing but how it is utilised going forward is another. Unfortunately stories out there suggest some KA guys had their own way of micromanaging and if given a FO slot could end up being more of a burden in the flight deck.

This is up to the Training Dept and the certain individual who is uttering these sentences to stop it.

These sentences can also be translated into different languages.

”on the airbus”
”in the airforce”
”in ryanair”

I have hk PR. I have many years of flying experience ex HK. I have a HK CAD A330
rating. I have 1000’s of hours command. I was paid handsomely by cx upon the termination of KA.

Why would I be a hinderance to the safe operation of a CX A350 ?

I have received the email, while sunning myself in Italy. I fancy going back . Even cos 18 will be around $100k/ month. I still own my village house, so should be ok.

And best of all, I can climb the ranks of cx based on my experience not because of a seniority number.

It will be hard for CX to convince Immd that any of the HKG PR Pilots aren't suitable since the company requirements have been 300 hours and a weak pulse since POS18 inception.

I have a question though. It says an applicant needs to be fully vaccinated. Under their online application form, one can only picks yes or no.
I picked no, because I only got the first shot, and still waiting for the second one. Does it mean my application will be automatically filtered out?

I am literally in the same position. I'm going to put Yes because I believe I'll be fully vaccinated by the time they even decide to hire me. Anyone have anythoughts?

Never before, in the field of aviation conflict, has so much, (John12.35) been looked up, by so many, because so few, appear to have no damn common sense.

I laughed when Mr Google came out with the answer.

Apologies to Winston Spencer Churchill.

Unlike the HKCAD, the ImmD doesn’t fall for the companies tricks no longer. They are gonna want to see proof of actual PR/citizens employment, not just the usual dog and pony show, which is a bit miffed by now.

So now the Immigration Dept decides who is suitable to fly an aircraft.

John 11.35 indeed.

And this is what I'm gonna be replaced by when the Wicked Witch of the East makes her next announcement and closes my base? John 11:35 indeed. Best of luck boys, you're gonna need it. Unlike the rest of that Gospel verse, nothing is gonna raise this shitshow from the dead.

That got me good. I was expecting to be converted and ended up having a great chuckle.

Well in the real world none of these "vaccines" are actually vaccines. They may do something but that is still a point of debate, but by definition they are not vaccines so you best say NO or it may latter be discovered that you lied on your application...

  1. a substance used to stimulate the production of antibodies and provide immunity against one or several diseases, prepared from the causative agent of a disease, its products, or a synthetic substitute, treated to act as an antigen without inducing the disease.

    It’s a vaccine according to the definition

Sorry, it does not (necessarily) provide immunity. It may reduce the effects of infection. Admittedly the definition has changed in some jurisdictions...

Even the CDC says in MAY prevent the target virus. That is absolute FACT, it does not come with a warranty. Many cases of fully "vaccinated" people catching this.

BTW Oasis, why is this not the place for this? There is an endless amount of opinion on this site, sorry if my post doesn't fit your opinions.

At the end of the day who care get a "vaccination" if you want, if you don't want one don't get it.
