Hong Kong's Strict COVID-19 Rules Are Mentally Burdening, Cathay Pacific Pilot: I Can't Continue This

https://voi.id/en/news/108218/hong-kong ... tinue-this

JAKARTA - One of Asia's largest airlines, Cathay Pacific, is facing opposition from pilots, saying Hong Kong's strict quarantine rules under its zero-COVID policy are endangering their mental health, leading to increased stress and resignations.

Several current and recently departed Cathay pilots told Reuters morale was low and resignations were rising a year after many had their salaries permanently cut by up to 58 percent.

... Pilots, for example, were asked to avoid 'unnecessary social contact' for three weeks, after returning to Hong Kong, but they were not given any time off as compensation.

Cathay said on Thursday that some inbound flights during the peak December demand season would be cancelled, indicating a lack of volunteers.

The airline said it was aware of the strain on its pilots and had bi-weekly dial-in sessions to share issues, as well as programs such as a peer-based pilot assistance network and offering extended leave.

Pilots who spoke to Reuters said they expect more resignations next year, when the transitional housing and school allowance ends.

Cathay said it would hire "several hundred" new pilots and restart its cadet program in the coming year.


Oh dear, sounds like a mental roller coaster ride at CX, God speed for everyone there............


This is of no surprise to anyone remotely familiar with conditions at CX and on the ground in HK. Just read the last few pages of this topic should give you enough insight to know it’s beyond stressful. Again, I’m so fortunate I was able to get out. Right now it feels like I escaped from a prison but I’ve got many friends and their families who are in dire situations. Next year will be worse for many of them. I hope they can get out and away from CX. It’s toxic.

CX continues to struggle mightily. Quote from a pilot: “Things are horrible, resignations are through the roof. There are a lot of guys at their breaking point. It’s actually amazing that we haven’t had an accident yet.” Yes, it's SimpleFlying.com, though, but...

Indeed a sad reality. I just looked up the location on Google Maps; ironically, it's next to HK Disneyland...go figure. And one of the quotes from the article is that 80% of the aircrews that one of the interviewed pilots flies with talks about finding jobs elsewhere constantly. Who can blame them?

Why are some Cathay Pacific aircraft still not repainted into the new livery?

Thu Dec 16, 2021 4:56 am

I was wondering why some 777-300ER's, 747 Freighters are still in the old livery but not repainted yet?

Probably because they are not due for a major check yet. In this pandemic economic environment, airlines are watching expenses like hawks. Repainting an aircraft is an expensive proposition and, if not needed, a frivolous expense just for branding purposes.

Correct, the then-new livery was introduced in November 1, 2015 and all repainting was scheduled to complete within five years. I guess due to pandemic, the plan has been further delayed. Some aircraft which were in new livery have retired since then, especially A330/B77W. Same goes to KA.

All planes with new KA livery are retired or being repainted as they enter CX’s fleet, considering KA is now dead.

Another factor to consider is that if an aircraft is scheduled to be retired soon, it may not be repainted into a new livery at all. This was the case with UPS’ fleet of Boeing 727s, classic Boeing 747s (-100 and -200 series), and Douglas DC-8s, which were retired in the late 2000s and UPS thus felt no need to repaint them into their new livery which was introduced around that time.

Aren’t a few of the 773ERs still used as cargo transport as well? Considering the current status of the world I belive moving cargo is at a premium and taking the time to paint them probably is not a priority.

Not so fast...





UPS definitely painted up 727-100's and DC-8's in the new livery. The DC-8's were retired in 2009, the 727's sometime around 2005 or 2006. The new livery was introduced in 2003.

With the balance sheet in shreds, repainting is deprioritised. Think Northwest's 1989 rebrand when the wheels came off due to Gulf War 1 or Air Canada's current re-brand which had the brakes slammed on when COVID hit. Or the never ending BOAC/BEA merger in the 70s when money just ran out. They still hadn't completed a uniform branding by 1981, some eight years after the Negus rebrand was unveiled.

This probably...

Last couple years HKG has been hurting for tourism, I can only imagine the yields at CX are down a bit already, and with the COVID slump... does anyone really want to go to China right now?
Not saying that's fair... not saying it's an accurate assessment of risk, but the international travel is where they're making money, and that's historically at a low point.

Why blow money on painting your airplanes if you're unsure if they'll even be flying when you're done at the paint shop?

There are only a few aircraft left in the old colours, including a small number of A330s and 77Ws which are stored in Alice Springs. The only old coloured aircraft in service at the moment is a single 748F (B-LJK). Of the 77Ws, 3 of the 4 are newer ones and only just coming to the age where they need a repaint. The other I suspect might be returned/sold soon.

More bad news for CX and other operators into HKG: Requirement for 3 day quarantine for all cargo air crew in a hotel facility on arrival into HKG

https://news.rthk.hk/rthk/en/component/ ... 211228.htm

Could even possibly be extended to 5 days as per the discourse coming from health advisors in the territory.

Local TV news describe the 3-days quarantine as a compromise to minimize disruption on cargo flight operation and hint the possibility of further elevating the restriction

CX do get full flights...out of HKG, that is.

What's really hurting travel to HK in general is the draconian 21-day quarantine. Unless you're desperate to visit relatives who may not last long, or is somebody who can work anywhere, most normal people aren't going to go through that process. Business demands? Companies are simply minimizing travels to only those who has to go to HK (Unless you're Jamie Dimon or Nicole Kidman, that is...).

BTW even mainland China is 14 days quarantine at a hotel + 7 days at home monitoring. I believe Taiwan has similar rules.

And the HKgov stupidity continues...the sooner they realized zero covid doesn't work, the better.

But hey, keep having that pipedream of mainland opening up for HK people...

This is just a humanitarian tragedy in Hong Kong. the 21-day quarantine has separated families and prevented people returning from overseas to see their dying relatives and parents. By the way you are out of quarantine many dying relative has become dead.

It's also reported that two cargo pilots who violated their 3 day home quarantine orders are likely to have infected family members and other diners in a restaurant - the first local transmission cases in Hong Kong in months.

Cathay Pacific's future and fortunes are inextricably tied to the future of Hong Kong's role and prominence as a global hub of finance, and that future is cloudy at the moment. While the financial services sector in Hong Kong has held up quite well, the hard reality is that the future seems to hold Shanghai displacing Hong Kong as a unified, China hub of finance. The crackdowns on freedom of the press, personal liberties, and so forth in Hong Kong aren't quite a side show, but they are a clear indication that the city is moving further and further away from the SAR model that came into being upon the handover in 1997. Hong Kong is a major cargo port, by sea and by air, and that's not really set to change much, but Singapore, Shanghai, and quite likely Taipei, will be the ever more prominent hubs of banking, finance, and capital markets in Asia (alongside Tokyo of course) and Cathay Pacific is heading into a very uncertain future, with substantive downsizing or restructuring most likely on the horizon. The current quarantine protocols for Hong Kong are not business friendly and it doesn't look like they're set to change any time soon. Omnicron will find its way into Hong Kong and into mainland China soon enough (it already likely has) and the response will be more stringent lock downs and a further effort to contain the virus. None of that bodes well for Hong Kong or CX.

There's no large community spread of Omicron variant in HK, but one of the first case of Omicron outside of Africa was actually discovered in HK...

Getting off topic, but it's not a matter of "who's replacing who" IMHO, but the fact that the Chinese system will eventually be THE system in HK also. Look at the news lately, CCP had been completely erratic when it comes to cracking down especially on the tech sector (in the name of "competition"). Tech companies in mainland has no choice but to just agree to the rule, but not so much for international business who will eventually find the excessive regulation not worth it even with the large "potential" market.

And when such system reach HK, it's the end. CCP held off on things like "anti-sanction law" in HK for now, but what's to say they won't impose it sometimes next year? When the financial sector goes, those will eventually hurt the high-end traffic up front for CX also.

The high end traffic on CX to and from HKG has all but dried up. There's little to no business demand and elsewhere in the world, it is pretty anemic. That's a global issue, not unique to HKG but when it comes to HKG, there's not much business traffic moving in and out.

Suspending all flights, including cargo, for 7 days are just crazy especially during year end! Has the government gone mad? My organisation, a German MNC, has decided to move several business units out of Hong Kong regional HQ to Singapore mainly due to the very restrictive travel movement. More downsizing is being planned. I wonder how long can HK hold up? Feel really sad for all crew.
