Allegedly to "take responsibility" for "recent events" - this is outright corporate terrorism, evidenced by the fact that the story broke on CCTV before any announcement was released to the stock exchange.

Chinese state-owned entities also currently banning their staff from flying CX/KA on company travel.

I prefer to sit on the sidelines and observe since there is no right or wrong.

The West is equally screwed up.
One can't equate brutal repressive Marxism to what is an admittedly imperfect, but still far preferable system of democracy and free enterprise where there is generally (with a few qualifications) freedom of movement, religion and expression.

Many people who've fled communist dictators for the West would trenchantly disagree with your assertion.

There's no great flow of people wanting to live for good in communist China, or totalitarian Russia. In contrast, there's a queue a mile long wanting to live in nations like Germany, the UK, Australia, Canada and the USA.

Good, they are responsible for the 3-4-3 Y sardines seats on the 777. Hope the new CEO will reverse that terrible decision.

But what worries me is any future strikes at HKG.
Also HK will probably goes down if the Hong Kong human rights and democracy act is passed in the US Congress later this year. Axing any special tariff and trade concessions HK has been getting for the past 100 years from the USA. Separate from what China is getting....

HK is part of China, Trump agrees too. So same tariff treatment. This also stops any Chinese companies using HK as a backdoor for trade concessions....

My relatives always told me 'don't ask questions to which you know the answer.'

It's important that we in the West, and many other nations, care. Show communist China for what it is.
They know we all know what communist China stands for. They still don’t care. This war won’t be fought on a field or ocean. It (the invasion) is already underway , you know it as trade and immigration.

The proposed legislation doesn't automatically revoke Hong Kong's special status under US law, but imposes closer monitoring and gives the Secretary of State more executive power to revoke special treatment or block bills that would give it.

Singapore was once part of Malaysia too.

The bill would require once a year certification from the USA side. So rather than concession unconditionally by default, now it is on a year by year basis.

That would certainly change things..

but imposes closer monitoring

the pilots won't be sorry to see them go

given all the pressure from the CCP this could be the beginning of the end for CX, mainland carriers would love to get their hands on more slots at HKIA and a crippled CX being blocked from flying mainland routes (or even overflying the PRC) would be stuffed

Those that are still there, that is, now that some pilots have been fired/forced to resign for their political views.

I won't say too much, but just talked to a friend who works for CX in HK. They're not allowed to talk about the situation in HK anywhere. Customs are checking their phones, so they delete conversations.

Indeed. If the story is accurate, it's extraordinary. What an incredible person.
Supposedly a bit of artistic licence in the story. It may be true he refused to hand over a list, period, rather than handing over a list with just one name.

A job with another airline? Depends if it is flying, or intendes to fly to China.
