Closed Loop will be the least of CX worries soon.

Beijing now wanting to punish CX for spreading Omicron will be the biggest threat.

The ‘Operations’ clowns are looking for ‘wetbacks’ to keep a shitshow on the road.

The jellyfish will be the first ‘casualty of war’ - retiring due to ‘family reasons’.

Can’t wait to see the back of this excuse for a human being.

These are the new promotions to the Hong Kong Government. Highly respected by president Xi, they have a direct line to him and his thought. Closed loop is the least of your problems.

From Bloomberg.

"Chinese President Xi Jinping has deployed a top Xinjiang police official to command the nation’s army post in Hong Kong, raising fears Beijing is taking an increasingly hard line on security in the Asian finance hub.

Major General Peng Jingtang will become commander of the People’s Liberation Army’s Hong Kong garrison at the request of Xi, China’s Defense Ministry said in a statement. Peng was previously deputy chief of staff for the armed police force in the far Western region of Xinjiang, where the U.S. government has accused China of repressive polices against Uyghur Muslims that amount to genocide. Beijing strongly denies the charge.

China has in recent years installed officials with experience heading crackdowns in key Hong Kong roles. In early 2020, Luo Huining, a Communist Party stalwart known for executing Xi’s anti-corruption campaign, became head of the central government’s powerful Liaison Office in the city. Xia Baolong, known for prosecuting a campaign against Christian churches in Zhejiang province, was named director of the Hong Kong & Macau Affairs Office in the same year."

Just got an email from Debs saying I could ‘potentially’ earn my old salary if I sign up for closed loop duty cycles.

Education, housing, medical and rostering issues will remain the same and all my mates who were on bases who would have made closed loop flying unnecessary can stay fired.

But sure, I’d love to be paid with the money that was forcibly taken from me so I can support HK’s insane zero Covid policy. I also lose sleep at night about huge management bonuses. Speaking of which, when is management reverting back to full pay or has that already happened?

If you’re desperate for $ then closed loop is your only option but personally I’ve had enough of enabling the lunatics who run this asylum.

How long before all you remaining Cathay pilots realise that Management simply consider you as being “useful idiots”? That is all you are to them.

May take a while Ken, they are pretty slow. Abused children comes to mind.

Ah yes. PRC ATPL. The very nadir of aviation professionalism.

The greatest license of man kind is the CAAC ATPL. Nothing beats it. It´s so precious that the employer will safeguard it - and keep it at safe distance away from you. You will not be granted a dual license rating - that way it´ll be harder for you to leave the smoggy shithole mainland city that you´re based in with your depressed family. Oh, how I wish I was worthy of a CAAC ATPL - perhaps it comes with a Wuhan China Covid endorsement (BAT PIC).

Surely she didn’t? Sign up to closed loop shit, and you can earn a full salary like you did before we unilaterally slashed it?
I don’t believe anyone could stoop that low, not even a cx manager….

Taking something away and offering to sell it back to you for in this case ( 5 weeks of your life ) I think I'd pass.

HK$100,000!!....Wow, so Cathay Pilots really can put a price on freedom. I have no doubt Rostering will be flooded with volunteer e mails.

If you do 4 closed loops in sequence as a captain you will earn HK$400 per day in that 8 month period.

Subject to tax off course, something Debs conveniently forgot to mention, as the honey was dripping out of her mouth.

I wonder what kind of human rolls out at the other end of 4 closed loops at the price of 100.000?

One that shouldn’t be anywhere near the controls of an aircraft.

How About Debbie chipping in with a few closed loop cycles? Isn't she an ex cabin crew manager? Maybe she could heat up the meals on the freighter.
