I’ve lived for 5years in HK and 5 in China. In HK you see 80year olds working because they have no choice. There really is two societies - the mega rich and the rest - €45k annual rent for a 80sqm apartment nowhere near the city centre (airport area) more than absorbs the low tax part of your salary...Jump to post
Looks like the ex employees will be entitled to either long service pay or redundancy of 2/3 of a months pay by number of years served. There are caps on the amount which can be paid. https://www.labour.gov.hk/eng/faq/cap57l_whole.htm Yes, and no. I was made redundant a few years ago. There is a le...Jump to post
Dublin airport no longer has water salutes for this very reason - too high a chance of something going wrong.Jump to post
Zurich is an hour from Basel.
BSL CVG is as hair brained as CRL HKG.
Hardly surprising. CX loads and yields were poor, and Air Belgium had no presence in Hong Kong. I flew to HK in CX with the inaugural ex HK crew for air Belgium - a great set of people, so hopefully they are all secure in roles. With CX looking at dropping CPH, hopefully this secured BRU’s future.Jump to post
Barcelona is crime ridden for decades now. In 2000 I was one of two people in the first three rows of a 737 on a flight to stansted who weren’t robbed. Las ramblas is known as a crime hotspot. Drug taking is rife and the associated crime is out of control. Barcelona is Europe’s cocaine capital and h...Jump to post

How much does the state actually pay to keep them? I assume they get some sort of compensation. I read the article, but didn't see it. As a taxpayer in CT, one of my thoughts is "Norwegian would have done it for free". lol They guarantee the A321 and hype it in the statement, but I don't ...Jump to post

This is a prime example of absolute power corrupting absolutely. Now that the church has diminished, it needs to cut the cancer to survive. In my (Catholic) primary school, my lay maths teacher is in Jail for molesting kids. The school did the right thing and provided the police with all peoples det...Jump to post
Probably not of concern in such an emergency, but does Zhuhai have pax immigration? I’ve flown from there a few times and the airport was 100% domestic from memory.Jump to post
The plane must have been really beat up, otherwise it doesn't make much sense to divert all the way up to Shenzen when Zuhai is much closer. All the way up to Shenzhen? If it wasn’t for the pollution, you could see the landing lights of shenzhen from Macau. Shenzhen is a coastal approach, so a lot ...Jump to post
The way catholic forgiveness works is that you own up to the sin, and you have penance. Penance for religious people who abuse children should be worse than jail as they demand more from others than they give themselves. I like the current pope. He means well, but is weak . He is stuck with an colle...Jump to post
The sheer hypocrisy of church leaders preaching one thing and doing the opposite is what sticks in people’s minds. I say church leaders as it’s just as likely to be a catholic or other religion. Within the Catholic Church, It’s time that the Vatican stops talking and starts jailing those who abuse c...Jump to post
There is discent in China. Look at the guandong nuclear plant marches. For the size and diversity of China, the Xi government is doing a great job in comparison to say India, the US or UK. Everyone gets an education, healthcare is good, and infrastructure is fantastic. Is it utopia - no, but nowhere...Jump to post
I’ve lived in greater China for 10 years. I’ve visited xinjiang province many many times. I’ve met with government officials and travelled with my Chinese (Muslim) marketing director out of the cities. The vast vast majority of Muslim residents in xinjiang are happy to be Chinese and Chinese Muslims...Jump to post
The concept of a major cargo Centre in Shannon is nuts. No industrial area within hundreds of kms. Consider Europe’s major cargo hubs - East Midlands, Liege and Cologne, etc. All based in the heart of industry and population. Cargo from Asia isn’t going to fly right over continental Europe to fly ba...Jump to post

I’d say BDL yields are helped this year by Norwegian disappearing from EDI. There are probably a dozen or so Hartford’s that EI can target with the 321LR. It will be great to see smaller destinations working. I know that the C series has long legs, but can a 100 seater make money on such long sector...Jump to post

Last weekend I flew into T2 and out of T2. Its like they are two different airports. The A gates in T1 are a disgrace. Grimey, shabby and not built for an high density A320. Someone could start with a brush and some window cleaner though. That points to nobody giving a damn. Then daa can move onto s...Jump to post
Anyone know how the DAT Dublin Odense flights are performing? That’s a long way on an ATR. I flew out of T1 today - it remains a filthy and unloved patch work terminal. Even though really busy, Security was a pleasure though. The airport have spent a fortune on the A gates, but they have left it to ...Jump to post
