I see a captain recently came out of retirement and got to keep his seniority number. If anyone is insane enough to come back be sure to ask for the same.

They will receive the same loyalty they provide.

It is a two way street.

I remember when they did the "ring around" to all the Aussie Pilots, telling them everything was going to be OK, your job is safe and we are already working on sims etc to get you back flying, don't worry. Then emailed a month later saying you are fired.

Take it as a blessing and run the other way. If the content on these forums doesnít scare you youíll be in for a world of hurt moving to HK to join the skeleton that used to be CX.

They were hired with the caveat that they would spend time instructing in Adelaide before coming to Hong Kong. They were meant to gain seniority during that time and join on B-scale. Instead the company put them to the bottom of the list and offered C-scale.

Another one of many shameful incidents. One of the instructors was the son of a long time Senior Check and Training Captain, a man who had gone out of his way for the company over many years. The betrayal of his son was a small insight into the completely immoral management that permeates the airline to this day. Too many other incidents to name, but this one was grossly offensive, as it involved so few people and to have honoured their word would have been of no consequence. Instead, CX management once again proved how odious they are.

They did manage to get an undisclosed settlement, right?

The beauty of a settlement is they donít need to correct their ways.

The financial penalty is insignificant in their campaign of industrial domination.

No they didn't get any settlement. Other than "there's the door, be grateful we hired you".

I thought they said "let's go to court and see who runs out of money first"...
