Liu Chung-yin, a 30-year-old pilot with Cathay Pacific, was arrested on July 28 during a violent demonstration in Hong Kong on riot charges with 43 other protesters. Liu was later released on bail and allowed to fly out of Hong Kong. Cathay Pacific didn't condemn Liu, nor did it say how to punish him, citing privacy reasons.
Under HKG law, being arrested does not mean a person is guilty only a court can determine if a person is guilty. As you have said they were released that means they are still presumed innocent.
Please refer to the Hong Kong employment ordnance regarding wrongful dismissal.
After that, it is reported that some 2,000 Cathay Pacific employees including 1,200 cabin crew and pilots took part in a strike on August 5. One staff member also leaked the flight information of a group of Hong Kong police that flew to the mainland.
I doubt that very much, that would mean many flights would have had no cabin crew.
I also doubt the the allegations of crew leaking information regarding “police” on a flight. That is not something recorded in the passenger lists. Also the allegation can be proven to be baseless because of the paperless process CX uses.
Passenger information that crew have access to is contained electronically on company devices on the aircraft.
If the “police” were in uniform it is far more likely they were seen by any number of people within the terminal and presumably 200+ other passengers on the aircraft. Also a group of people in HKG Police uniforms speaking Cantonese with the wrong accent is very easy for locals to notice.
The airline downplayed these abominable actions, severely undermining the trust of the industry and the public.
The company as per usual practice does not make advice to staff public, especially that given to crew. You simply do not know what the company has said to their employees.
This is common for all all airlines I am aware of.
Whether it can ensure the highest standard of flight safety and services quality in the future has become unknown, and here come warnings and three requirements raised by CAAC to Cathay Pacific. If the airline cannot guarantee compliance with the new regulatory demands on flight safety, its flights cannot be allowed to fly to or over the mainland.
As I have shown above CX has been independently determined by JACDEC to be the safest airline in the region, safer than SQ. it ranked 12 th in the world.
None of the large mainland Chinese airlines even made the top 50 worldwide.http://theflight.info/rating-of-the-mos ... orld-2018/
You did respond to these questions
Can you advise us all under what Hong Kong law this “political commisar” (sic) would be appointed ? how they would be selected ? and who would fund their position?
What other companies in Hong Kong have “political commisar” ? I have never seen such a position advertised before.
