Are they going to get rid of the new entries on the bottom now, since the 'deal' with immigration is now not being honored?

What makes you think it isn’t? The ‘deal’ you hung your hopes on was never more than a stay of execution to keep planes flying in the short term. The group has been given sufficient time to get their into a pile so HKSAR immigration policy can return to normal.

Between renewal rejections, returning based-pilot rejections and resignations of pilots unwilling to stay for POS18 in return for at-will employment, they’re going to be scrambling for all the new entries they can find.

Greed, well of course, goes without saying. I would have thought deceive, scrounge, mislead, cheat, dishonour and lie were just as appropriate.

The key message from that article is that the Middle East airlines are gearing up for more and more countries allowing free travel again.

Meanwhile in HK…

Expect increased tightening of arrival restrictions - both passenger and crew I’d say 🙄

Nope. You missed the key message.

It's that they're restoring pay and benefits knowing otherwise they can't keep and attract pilots..

Havenít perused Fragrant Harbour for a while but this morning I was surprised to see that people are still flying in Honkers!
Just goes to show how much crap one will take!
this is not a jibe and you have my sympathy - what is happening in Honkers is tragic but - come on - the writing was on the wall 20-years ago.
God speed to you all and here is hoping you find a way.

there is a way but no one wants to take it because the grass is far from greener. Instead they come on here to b and moan and hope they can pressure enough others leave (apart from actually leaving themselves of course) so that their conditions will magically improve. Then there’s the bunch that pretend they have left cx yet still come on here daily to complain, why would anyone invest all that emotional energy if they have actually left.

Fair question Nobolco and I can only speak for myself.
Even living abroad I still follow the news of my home country.
Same here: still interested and at times even fascinated by the happenings in my beloved city of HKG.
That and to annoy the crap out of STW of course.

Can we start hiring keen aviators instead of instagram social media addicts?

Would like to see CX hiring those KA SOs instead of fresh out of the box graduate cadets. At least they know how to fly a plane.

Their priority is exKA FOs (or any FO) who have been offered or have a job with GBA.

Theyre really dragging their feet over it. I know several who have passed selection and it’s all gone quiet.

I often thought it went downhill with the demise of the old color scheme. Any airport it stood out. It might not have been to everyone’s taste but what followed was bland.

Pretty much all legacy airlines went downhill, blame it on the development of low cost carriers rather than a mere change in paint scheme.

Low hour pilots and newly graduated cadet may not differ much in the Company perspective and shall be treated as the same pool.
