100+ posts since you (allegedly) left, almost all predicting the imminent downfall and implosion of your (allegedly) former employer would be for sure pathological. Beyond sad.

Having said that, reading and answering your posts, in my free time, knowing you are most probably full of it anyway, that is arguably worse

They only have themselves to blame for lack of experiences pilots . Lots of very great aviators have since come to the sand pit where everything is close to perfect and everybody is extremely friendly and my close circle of friends all have fast cars and expensive watches.

They really donít care about experience, experience costs money and thatís now only a privilege to a select few in the fleet office and higher. Running a full service airline with a cost base of a LCC is their wet dream that has nearly become a reality.

Nonsense. The "experience level" is not higher in the sandpit compared to here. They have exactly the same issues, advertise for DEC, even had to introduce a minimum age for upgrades. And last not least very dubious hiring and promotion practices of locals. You have no idea.

Correct Klinger, all those Senior Cn's leaving in the last 2 yrs made zero dent on the experience level of the airline.
You are as unhinged as your namesake.
CX deserve you.

Are you part of EK or CX? You heard stories about EK? If only Chinese whispers didnít exist and facts were given without emotion.

While most that comment on CX threads have been with CX long enough to know exactly what itís like there.

By the way, most of the ďgripesĒ written here about CX is true.

Spot on !
They are surviving with experienced CNs who stayed, 15-10 years FOs now upgrading, ex KA although upgraded out of seniority (I know, doesnít exist anymore), very few good guys they managed to hire, a few SOs with decent prior experience and returnees.
Other than that they are hiring a bunch of former bankers.
I have been contacted by several people for info, I had them talking with others as well for a second opinion, nobody joined.
Even 2.5 years FR FOs are now remaining there for their command.
CX signed a LOA with two big mainland college, that is what is next .

Average experience in an EK new hire class is several thousand hours airbus/Boeing, despite the hiring environment tightening.

Average CX entrant canít get a job anywhere else.
