…and none of it related to rights with respect to a company closure or take-over.

I got my info from a 744 trainer at BA who didn’t have the rosy rainbows and unicorns outcome you speak so highly of. STP there are none so blind as those who refuse to see, go look at the losing battles between pretty much any pilot group and associated airline in Australia or Europe, There are zero rights under the COVID distorted business view and legal system. If you want to see yourself as infinitely better than the average QF pilot, you go right ahead. Nothing that CX has done on any base this year should surprise anyone.

Re: rainbows and unicorns - pretty easy to catastrophise when your fleet is off to the graveyard and you’re on the BALPA forum, (or indeed on here) all the time trying to get any semblance of information. The only senior ones that left were those that took VR.

BA wanted to bin the Jumbo Pilots as that was the cleanest legal outcome - BALPA engineered the CRS pool.

The most efficient and cost-effective way for CX to have ‘right sized’ (as far as pilots were concerned at least, as it’s not always all about us) would have been to merge the KA pilots into CX then get the whole lot on COS18 then work out from there who was needed on which fleet with minimal training cost. Stick the surplus on unpaid leave awaiting the sunlit uplands of the third runway with slots to fly and the end of Covid.

If immigration and visas had been a factor from the outset things would have probably worked out a little differently. But they weren’t and didn’t.

Going back to rainbows and unicorns I doubt that in 12 months from now there will be any unemployed HK Licence holders with residency.
