... since they destroyed too many families, by firing all the KA pilots, by firing hundreds of CX pilots, by cutting the CoS of the "lucky" ones by up to 60%.

If you ever feel the need to "help out" again, please reread your emails from one year ago, or just remember how you felt on the 21st of October 2020.

On the London base they also helped out by voluntarily going to 50 percent. A lot of good that did them.

Just remember that by getting rid of you, it enables them to pay a non PR bedmaker in Hong Kong a salary. I speak for based crew, I speak for KA crew. Just remember, that is the company you are working for.

Thank you for your 20 years service, Captain. We’ll rather keep a 500hr piston hotshot on salary in Honkie.

What a laugh.

Being fired by email after 30 years certainly takes the biscuit.

AndyClown350,

No one really cried on this thread - just a few comments made.

Remember one thing - life changes. You never, ever know when you find yourself at the bottom end of the cycle next time.

A sad anniversary....one can only hope that some of these Swire bully boys are about to find themselves in the dole queue as well. There is delightful irony in CX being outbullied by the CCP.

And I thought your post was about 1 year to go, not looking in the past. For that is the more interesting date....

Crying post? What a bozo. Like you've been Rip Van Winkled for the last 20 years and just woke up.

I think it should be you crying Andy if you work for CX, you're the one looking at COS18 or worse for the rest of your 'career'.....

Any minute now the 'tell me one other airline with better conditions you can go to' morons will appear to defend this POS.

Sounds like theyíve already priced in the massive correction coming in housing. HKG (and China) are about to see their property bubbles burst spectacularly.

Get out of them flats if you havenít yet boys and girls, they might be repriced for what they are actually worth pretty soon. Youíll be able to then repurchase them, no mortgage, at a fraction of the previous priceÖ but you just wonít have a need for them anymore.

This 'imminent' housing correction is like saying there's a pilot shortage, I don't see any correction in property prices in HK - the banks, HK Govt, estate agents and home owners have too much vested interest to allow a property crash to happen.
