Cx are laughing all the way to the bank. They are making much of their money in currencies such as the AUD, NZD, GBP etc which have appreciated immensely in the last few years. Their outgoings are...

Well actually, get advice on that. Depending on which country you are living, or decide to settle the divorce in, you may find the Hong Kong deal is better. Generally speaking, under Hong Kong law,...

Yep. Once you lose(give away) something, you will NEVER get it back. And CX has a very short memory when it comes to grabbing things. Don't even think that CX would look on one aspect favourably just...

Points taken. But we have to start somewhere and if you look at the crewlists for freighter flights, you will see how many pax Captains are flying the freighter. The AOA are probably too scared to...

Interesting. I think CX is clutching at straws on this one. I suspect only those who are desperate to stay in, or move to, HKG would be interested(residency issues/commuters etc).

RA > 55 will only come if the company forces it. No legislation will force CX to do it. That is merely an excuse and once again, expectation management is working it's wonders. I am not saying that...

Sorry guys and girls. IMHO,this is not the place to discuss a wish list. You risk this forum becoming an ad-hoc negotiation, with CX getting a good idea of where to aim. This has happened in other...

Yeah, well if only a certain pocket of 744 Captains would have the balls to say NO to flying the freighter (as many of them are entitled to).

While I can understand that the F/O's are 'pursuaded'...

Numero Crunchero. Heard something about the fact that the post-55 guys get screwed on their provident fund. Any info? Something about getting a paltry flat interest rate??

Quite a few Captains insist they will still retire at 55, regardless of what happens. However, imho, when it comes to the crunch, I believe that most will extend past 55 and they are just trying to...

I can tell you right now that the great Aussie dream will take years in CX to recover (if at all) nowadays. If it's a backyard and BBQ area you want, then the HKG lifestyle will not be for you. As a...

I can tell you from experience, that if the retirement age is extended to 60 from your current 55, it will delay peoples' promotions by way more than the 2 years mentioned earlier on. Despite the...

Productivity?

As I understand, hasn't CX got about a 15% increase in productivity since the new rostering practices were agreed to (for zero increase in pay)???

A cheap gain for CX!

So what? Whether it is 1 1/2 or 2 1/2 hours, it's still a big commute for the young ones. I am lucky to have kiddies near where I live. Don't envy those in worse circumstances.
