This is a good result for the company, should result in about 1.5 months extra salary for staff as a profit share (if earning under 12,000 a month)

How does the net profit compare to BA, QF, SQ, EK etc? Higher? Lower? Or about the same?

it really is a good result, extremely happy with it. i found it a pleasant surprise that management decided to give us a discretionary extra bonus to our profit share.

Congratulations to CX! It is good to hear that airlines make strong profits and beat analysts' expectations.

Quoting Zeke (Reply 3):

Reading the local forum at pprune, there are few rumors about the profit share. But many seem to agree that 16.5 days and $6000. Does 16.5 (working  confused  ) days = 1.5 months. It would make sense, but I am not sure and that's why I ask.  Smile

Cheers,
Andrej

Andrej,
there's a formula to calculate CX profit share. It was calculated that 16.5 days + (HK$6000 or half months salary whichever is lower). However because of the exceptional performance, the management decided to increase it to 1 months salary + the $6000/half salary just for this year.

Thanks for the explanation. So formula counted 16.5 working days towards the bonus. Nevertheless its good to hear that the management gave you guys (pilots, agents, flight attendants and other crew) good bonus. After all happy employees preform better than unhappy ones.  Smile

Cheers,
Andrej
