Yes mole, I also think tragic. But entirely within the CCP playbook: isolate, sinicize, control.

Nothing new here, just 26 years early.

CK or any DM will probably mandate no layovers and return thru extended duties and sleep in the bunk, add a makeshift bunk or two more on the freighters with the intent of saving money on layover expenses and solve the hotel room key card issue, that will be taken into account for next yearīs bonus.

These ideas are clearly coming from company management to satisfy the HK government. If it was truly pushed by the Hong Kong government they would have us all strapped up with tracking bands, either wear them or donít fly!

Cathay has shown their weakness, and that is it canít fight on two fronts (government and crew) and both are pillars of support for the company. If one falls they will truly struggle come recovery.

I have to ask.. why are people doing this? Are you so addicted to flying you have to subject yourself to this abuse? Or are you a person that can only imagine themselves as a pilot?

There is a life on the outside.. it takes some guts to do it.. but there is a life on the outside. Trust me.

I think people have mortgaged themselves up, kids in private schools, to the point they cannot sit back on no income. Lets face it, there aren't many alternatives out there at the moment (unless you're American.)

For those who are not in a closed hell loop, do a night out on the town, and have some fun

And if nothing else, wear a DOUBLE mask, that should protect you against all Ďvariantsí, in whatever shape, size or form they come in!

Easier to just browse 141 and let them come to you. Just gotta setup a leave home safe QR code for the front doorÖ

Almost all pax flights to US and AUS just canceled until the end of January. Exemptions are not getting renewed. Not even loop exemption. It's temp basing overseas and very quickly or shutdown. Any crew getting off the plane in hk will be subject to full quarantine. Either hk based crews do a turnaround extended duty to a destination and back without getting off the plane at destination or overseas based pilots doing a turnaround to hk and back without getting off the plane in hk, or a shutdown. It's about time.

Unless the silly hk government backs down last minute. But they're so doubled down it seems unlikely. The sooner they drive this sh!tshow off the cliff the better.

just now... Actually the minister of transport temporarily won the fight against minister of health, no further restrictions on crew at this time. For now anyway.

You love to talk rubbish. Flights are still going to the USA in January, the 880 is still operating, there are no changes to its schedule or most USA destinations.

Never let facts get in the way of a good story huh?

Everyone knows

Everyone knows that if a policy is, or seems to be, not working, then there is a need to double down on it.

Yes, possibly you are correct. So what will HK do when the rest of the world gets infected with this strain? Ban everyone? Never in my life have I seen a mentality like this.

I think you know the answer to that Fac6. Anyone whose job depends on them getting back to HK had better do so soon.

Just to shut you up. And this is just half the list. They'll announce it in a day or two anyway.
