ClOSedloop22

2021 brought us COS18, "sign or be fired".
So what will 2022 bring? Well that should be pretty obvious now. "Closed Loop or be fired".
Concurrently CX will be applying to CAD for "temporary" amendments and exemptions to every part of the current AFTLS so that 2 months flying can be crammed into a 3 week period. These will be granted without exception.
There will be RAT/PCR tests before and after every flight as well as ASR-F to be submitted after every pattern. Any breach of any of these requirements will result in criminal action against you personally as they will be law.
What is also certain is that the penalty for your family will increase. A week in PB for them if you are deemed a close contact. 3 weeks in PB for them if you test positive even if completely asymptomatic.

The Government, the Company, even the HK public, all need a scapegoat. You're it. Good Luck.

Sounds like the wives are going to keep the tennis coaches busy. Just watch that seniority skyrocket...

Unfortunately Cathay Pacific is dead and in the ground. The Government are just waiting to heap the soil on the casket. Huge shame but at least they will get rid of a lot of pesky foreigners with their ideas of democracy, hurrah!

I think Ken’s post had more than a touch of irony.

Just look at the morons falling over themselves to VOLUNTEER even after the forced contract change. When will the pilots ever show any self respect for their colleagues or even more importantly for themselves!

Thanks for that Globonik. Fac6 doesn’t do irony or perhaps doesn’t realise that the SCMP sometimes refers to Cathay pilots as “foreigners”. Oh well, good luck guys.

So that they can spend the rest of their lives in Groundhog Day ? Without Andy McDowell sadly.
Maybe it’s payback time for Robbens’ Island ?

It's now become a game of "last man standing".

I do love Andie McDowell. I'd marry her for a green card yesterday!

Sadly she’s got the IQ of a Kit Kat/Hershey bar / other confectionery is available.

Perfect for the average cx pilot whose primary concerns in life seems to be when will his JFO upgrade be and how to claim for a taxi when he gets out of Penny's bay..

Sorry was trigger happy. My apologies didn't see the hidden irony there. Peace and Happy New Year!

Look maybe I’ve missed something. I’ve read a lot of comments about how the government wants to shut CX down or TRYING to shut CX down as if it’s some great conspiracy.

My question is, why exactly do you think that? What benefit would there be to the government closing CX?

This is a war against business, not against a single entity. However what does not bode well is that CX is a legacy from a colonial period, something the CCP would like to remove.

Unfortunately Hkg is now run by the “Sopranos Inc China’ who compared to Swire are still the new boys on the block. Don’t think they will roll over just yet

So latest update is asking for crew to “seriously” consider volunteering for Closed Loop or EDTF to increase productivity.

When the (GMO) and everyone on the third floor sold our freedoms, well-being and mental Heath to the CHP to keep the operations running, no one will be stupid enough to help them out.

Bring on another round of VSS
