Once upon a time it as the Rolls Royce/ Gold Standard/ Rolex of airline jobs. And Honk Kong was a great place to live. My biggest disappointment was in 1991, when I failed my 2nd Cathay interview.

How the mighty have fallen. And what a sad, sad story it is. How did it come to this? ( I actually know the answer .. Bean Counters took charge.. who know the cost of everything, the value of nothing, and have no idea about aviation). And a few at the top, sold themselves for the money.

Incompetence is the true crisis

regardless of any hidden agenda by Swire to sell their stake of CX both GH and AT are absolute failures, dangerously incompetent and completely out of their depth when the pressure is on!

Let's face it, any idiot can sack people in the masses but to go missing in action when they are most needed to support their employees in crisis really does take another level of incompetence - completely void of any consistent and realistic guidance/solutions!!

Oh it has taken me awhile to think how "many" could be bigger than. "every". Now I will join those more intelligent than me in realising that the bigger take on this is that the word "every" was not used. Means to say some pilots are still in denial..

What's even more sickening is that many HK locals cheer on this harsh treatment, thinking that CX pilots are lucky enough to still be employed and therefore should be thankful even if treated like slaves. A lot of popular negative stereotyping about pilots too, thinking that those three cargo pilots who did a Frankfurt trip deserve to be fired because "they probably got hyper drunk in Germany lol because Germany haha I don't care which internal rule they broke if they even broke any or if they even drink any alcohol" smh

They were doing a sim renewal of their EASA licenses as part of their exit plan.
