Cathay Pacific responds to Labour Tribunal ruling
3 July 2009
Press Release

This is a very complex case involving the recruitment, promotion and career structure of Cathay Pacific pilots and we are grateful to the Labour Tribunal for its time and effort in trying to understand the various issues.

We are pleased with many aspects of the ruling including that there must be no differentiation in the assessment of cadet and direct entry second officers for promotion.

We are disappointed, however, with the Presiding Officer's interpretation of the provisions regarding when Cathay Pacific is required to assess a second officer for promotion. We will take legal advice on this aspect of the ruling and decide, in due course, whether to appeal to a court of law.

Staying airborne through global economic turbulence
2 July 2009
Business Day

Cathay Pacific CEO and Iata chairman Tony Tyler chats to about the many challenges facing the airline industry

TONY Tyler, CEO of Cathay Pacific and recently appointed chairman of the International Air Transport Association (Iata), jetted into SA last week for a very pressing engagement.

“I haven’t seen the British Lions play in SA since 1974,” said Tyler ahead of the second rugby Test that was played at Loftus Versfeld this past weekend.

Nevertheless, Tyler found a little time last Friday to discuss the parlous state of the airline industry and the challenges facing him as Iata chairman.

“Both passenger and cargo traffic worldwide have taken a huge hit due to the weak economy, and the industry is expected to make a $9bn loss, I think, was the last estimate. Then there is the rising fuel price, which is a major concern,” Tyler says.

He says conditions now are the worst that the industry has faced in decades.

“The role of Iata is to help the industry survive the storm and one way we are trying to help is by pushing monopoly service providers to keep a cap on their pricing,” says Tyler.

Pointing to Cathay’s home base, Tyler laments the fact that Hong Kong’s airport operator recently posted huge profits at a time when a HK$7bn ($900m) hedging loss and falling passenger demand saw Cathay record an attributable loss of HK$8,55bn in the 2008 financial year. “It does not make sense to take more money from airlines that are struggling to survive.”

At Iata’s annual general meeting, which was held in Kuala Lumpur last month, Giovanni Bisignani, Iata’s director-general and CEO, named and shamed several monopoly service providers for having implemented unreasonably large price increases — including SA’s own Air Traffic and Navigation Service for requesting a 44% rise in fees (the first rise in three years) next year.

However, Tyler’s biggest challenge will be environmental.

Iata members have committed to reducing their carbon emissions 1,5% a year until 2020, whereafter any growth in the industry will be carbon neutral.

“There is no other industry that has committed to such stringent reductions,” says Tyler.

The challenge, he maintains, is to ensure a global standard in regulating the reduction in the industry’s carbon footprint. It is here that Tyler gets a little hot under the collar. “It is difficult to get consensus,” he says. “Therefore we have a patchwork of green taxes where airlines are often paying several times.”

He points to the UK’s green tax. “It is just wrong. For one, it is charged on the length of the last sector, which in Cathay’s case is from Hong Kong to London. That is half of what Emirates would pay for the same route because they only have to pay for the flight from Dubai to London and not from Hong Kong to Dubai. It is plain discriminatory.

“Furthermore, the funds raised from the tax are not used to address environmental issues and just disappear into the state’s coffers. I have always said it is not a green tax but a Brown tax,” says Tyler, referring to the British prime minister, Gordon Brown. From November next year the tax will increase to 170 for each passenger in Cathay’s premier class.

“I will tell the real reason why the Dutch cancelled their green tax. The reason the Dutch government cancelled their tax is because it got too expensive and they were losing out with travellers choosing to travel elsewhere or using other hubs in Europe.”

Turning to Cathay, Tyler says the past year was particularly trying. “First and business class have been hit hard by the financial crisis. Hong Kong is a major financial centre, as are many of our destinations — Singapore, London and even Johannesburg, which is the region’s financial capital — and therefore the banking crisis resulted in a huge drop in business travel. Tell a banker he has to fly for five hours in economy and he would rather stay at home.”

The introduction of competition on the key Taiwan-China routes has also hurt. “We always expected there to be competition at some point. It is just a shame it had to happen now when the industry is on its knees.”

The rising fuel price was a mixed blessing for the airline. “While it means we are able to reverse the unrealised losses on our fuel hedges accounted for in the previous financial year, it also means our costs are rising at a time demand is already weak,” he says.

Cargo is also taking strain and has forced the airline to park five Boeing 747 freighters.

Cathay’s Johannesburg route has held up better than its other routes. “It is not a route that keeps me up at night,” Tyler says. Load factors on the route remain high at 78% and are in fact up 2% year on year. But yields have been hard hit as fare prices come under pressure.

David Ryan, country manager of Cathay, points out that May and last month were difficult months for the airline, but it was better off than its competitors.

The airline is eager to increase it capacity on the Johannesburg route to a possible double daily. “We are busy with our annual review and if the numbers look good, which I believe they will, then we will add more flights.”

Asked about possible flights to Durban’s new airport under construction at La Mercy, Tyler is dubious.

Airports Company SA is eager to attract long-haul carriers to the new airport but is likely to face an uphill battle. “We will take a long hard look at Durban, but I don’t think it is a viable route for us. Research shows that passengers like choice and therefore more flights to Johannesburg is a preferred choice.

“We could do a split to Durban but in most cases the cost involved makes such an arrangement unviable. It means extra crew, doubling up the infrastructure at each airport, plus we will more than likely be flying a half-empty aircraft from Jo’burg to Durban.”

Tyler says that the airline is also reviewing its IT systems in a bid to improve the service it provides to customers. “Our systems are not as well integrated as we would like in order to offer that wow factor when it comes to service. The aim is to be able to pre-empt problems and address them before the passenger is even aware of them,” says Tyler.

The changes mean simple service improvements — “if your bag goes missing, the airport staff is aware of the problem before you arrive, or cabin crew know when you step on board that you have earned your one-millionth mile and have champagne on ice”.

Tyler says his team remains excited about the future despite the economic challenges. “Despite the doom and gloom, we are working hard to squeeze out every dollar in saving, while investing in the right areas so that we emerge from this crisis a better airline.”

One of Cathay’s strong points has always been the way it recruits its managers. The Swire group, which owns the airline, is a multinational industrial group spanning agriculture, logistics, manufacturing, beverages and tourism, and has long recruited bright young individuals from around the world to be groomed for management.

“Unlike the traditional business schools, the recruits are trained on the job, moving around various parts of the business. That allows these young managers to learn all aspects of the business and it is a process that never really ends.”

Tyler says a benefit of the system is the informal network it creates and the potential for mentorship within the company.

It may be another small advantage that will allow the airline to prosper as the financial gloom slowly lifts.

Hong Kong is a major financial centre ... and therefore the banking crisis resulted in a huge drop in business travel

國泰機師追補薪
5 July 2009

【明報專訊】國泰航空公司一名二副機長向公司追討暫緩升職補償,獲得勞資審裁處判勝訴,國泰須向他賠款27萬元,成為首宗暫緩升職而獲賠的案例。航空機組人員協會曾預計有近300個類似機師個案會入稟追討,涉款4500萬元;而國泰回應稱,要先徵詢法律意見,才決定會否提出上訴。

入稟獲勝的Scott Williams於06年8月加入國泰擔任二副機長,合約列明二副機長在入職後約18個月和通過相關測試後便可晉升至初級副機長,但他入職後21個月才獲公司安排進行技術測試,而測試通過後,要至08年10月才正式被「上名」,當時他已入職了26個月。

質疑公司外聘機長 無空缺

Williams表示,自己是同級機長中年資最長的二副機長,再加上他已「上名」,代表符合升職資格,但公司一直拖延審批,又無發放每月約1.7萬元的暫緩升職補償。他更質疑公司因聘請外來機長,導致無空缺讓他升職。航空機組人員協會總幹事John Findlay 認為,培訓二副機長比直接招聘副機長需要更多時間和物資,國泰為了節省資源,所以寧願直接聘請副機長。

辯方證人機師Gardner表示,二副機長升職時間有長有短,「上名」不代表一定會升職,一切都要視乎委員會的決定。

裁判官最後裁定Williams勝訴,他可向國泰追討15個月的暫緩升職補償,即他雖然在過去15個月內還未升職,但仍可以領取相當於初級副機長的薪金和津貼,總金額約為27多萬元。

Williams對審訊結果感到十分高興,他認為合約上已經清楚列明一切,更不怕公司會因此有所「行動」。

料同類300機師追討 涉4500萬

國泰航空回應指出,他們會先徵詢法律意見,才決定會否向法院提出上訴。航空機組人員協會早前亦曾預計,如果Williams獲勝,將會有近300名受影響機師入稟追討補償,估計每人平均向國泰追討15萬元,涉及共4500萬元,但協會暫時仍未再作出回應。

99年起,國泰在機師僱傭合約中加入暫緩升職補償,為一些因為管理層的任何安排而遲遲未能升職的機師發放補償。雖然機師仍維持原有職位,但可以領取相等於升職後的薪酬。

I've had almost the exact meal from one of my recent Cathay flights ... where's the Haagen Daz ice cream (they had the Australian chocolate bar instead)?

I flew between HKG<>JFK a few times this year, and didn't get any ice-cream for dessert in economy class, not even once.
There was only a small piece of chocolate or cheese cake... The one time I was in business got a bigger piece of cheese cake as well.

But I do like that TamTam waffle chocolate bar.

Cathay can cut number of pilots in cockpit: court
The Standard
Tuesday, July 07, 2009

A pilots' union has lost a legal challenge against a Civil Aviation Department decision to let Cathay Pacific operate a flight with two instead of three pilots on board.

The director-reneral of civil aviation has the authority to vary the requirement of a three-man crew in long-haul flights, High Court Judge Andrew Cheung Kui-nang ruled yesterday.

The legal dispute arose after one pilot fell sick before the scheduled takeoff of Flight CX168 from Melbourne to Hong Kong on February 27 last year . The Hong Kong Aircrew Officers' Association, which took the government department to court, said Cathay Pacific's operation manual requires three pilots on long-haul flights.

The association was "naturally disappointed with Mr Justice Cheung's ruling."

"The request by Cathay Pacific to the CAD was in our view made on purely commercial grounds so that the expense of a seriously delayed or cancelled flight could be avoided," said the association's general secretary John Findlay, who added they were seeking legal advice on whether to appeal . CAD and Cathay Pacific refused to comment .

The duty period for pilots on board the flight departing Melbourne at 22.20pm (Hong Kong time) on February 27, 2008 was nine hours and 26 minutes . Under CAD rules a relief pilot is required on all flights where a two-member cockpit crew is on duty for more than nine hours.

民航條例覆核案 機員協會敗訴
7 July 2009
星島日報

國泰航空去年二月一班航機因一名機師病倒,向民航處申請豁免飛行時間守則中「要有三名機師在場」的規定,獲處方發出特許令,遭香港航空機組人員協會申請司法覆核企圖推翻決定。法官昨指有關守則只是政策文件而非法例,民航處有酌情權因應特殊情況調整,判機組人員協會敗訴。

香港航空機組人員協會總幹事范達禮(見圖)發表聲明,表明對判決感到失望,指國泰於事件中向民航處請求批准以兩名機師起飛,是為了避免航班取消帶來損失,純粹出於商業考慮。協會要求民航處日後避免再容許航空公司從飛行守則獲得豁免,以確保機組人員避免過勞,影響安全。

涉案國泰CX168航機去年二月廿七日由墨爾本飛來本港,飛行時間為八小時三十八分鐘。據民航處守則,若航班每節飛行時間超過九小時,或橫跨凌晨二時至六時,須有三名機師當值。但一名機師於起飛前突然病倒,國泰遂向民航處申請豁免三名機師共同當值的規定,處方於二月廿六日發出特許令。案件編號︰憲法及行政訴訟九六──二○○八。記者 林家豪

港龍航空
6 July 2009
香港經濟日報

朋友本來要去西安旅行,但是港龍暫時取消了由香港直飛西安的航班,朋友就說不去了。

經濟不景,人類豬流感肆虐,做旅遊生意的人都很頭痛,航空公司取消航班,也是迫不得已之舉。

但是,從這一件事上,也可以看到令港龍航空開心的現象。

就像我那位朋友,一聽港龍不飛西安就取消了行程,她甚至不去打聽是否有另一家航空公司的班機飛西安。她說她只坐港龍。

香港人對港龍航空的感情是很深厚的,參加旅行團去內地,看到用的是港龍,心裡就會踏實一點,覺得這個團的保障大一點,即使收得貴一點也不要緊。

飛內地城市,港龍的機票是比其他航空公司貴,但對於香港人來說,它依然是首選。

這就是地位。

要建立這樣的地位,必須付出不懈的努力,航班的安排、機艙的服務、準時的航程、安全的紀錄,缺一不可。

尤其是在內地旅行,當你聽見機場不斷宣布航機延誤或取消的廣播時,停機坪上停著的那架港龍航機,就是一顆最大的定心丸。

你知道,可以準時回家。

對於香港人來說,從外地踏進港龍班機的機艙,空姐親切的微笑,一份當天的香港報紙,乘客用廣東話問空姐︰「今日香港熱唔熱?」那種感覺,其實已經回家了。

經常出門旅行的人,都會有一家心儀的航空公司。

對於香港旅客來說,心裡認準的有兩家。

飛外國的,是國泰。飛內地的,是港龍。

New Hong Kong flights on way
8 July 2009
Gulf Daily News

MANAMA: Cathay Pacific Airways yesterday announced that it will introduce non-stop services to Hong Kong from Bahrain.

"Effective August 1, we shall operate three non-stop weekly services to Hong Kong from Bahrain and four non-stop weekly services to Bahrain from Hong Kong," said Bahrain and Saudi Arabia country manager Daniel Cheung.

Speaking during a media lunch at the Coral Beach Club, he said the Airbus A330-300 will be deployed to serve the route.

"The current two times weekly service to Hong Kong from Bahrain via Dubai will be discontinued and the last flight will operate on July 30."

He said flight CX742 will operate every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday, departing from Bahrain at 11.50pm and arriving at Hong Kong 1.15pm the next day.

"On every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, flight CX733 will depart from Hong Kong at 4.05pm and arrive in Bahrain at 7.50pm the same day."

He said Bahrain will now enjoy a direct service to Hong Kong in both directions. "This service enhancement between Bahrain and Hong Kong, in the current climate of economic turmoil, demonstrates our strong commitment to the local community and the Middle East region."

Mr Cheung said together with their sister airline Dragonair's extensive network to Mainland China and other Asian cities, the Cathay Pacific Group will bring Asia one step closer to the community in the Middle East.

"Cathay Pacific is also adding two flights between Riyadh and Hong Kong, bringing our operations to a total of 35 flights per week in the Middle East region."

港龍航空
6 July 2009
香港經濟日報

朋友本來要去西安旅行,但是港龍暫時取消了由香港直飛西安的航班,朋友就說不去了。

經濟不景,人類豬流感肆虐,做旅遊生意的人都很頭痛,航空公司取消航班,也是迫不得已之舉。

但是,從這一件事上,也可以看到令港龍航空開心的現象。

就像我那位朋友,一聽港龍不飛西安就取消了行程,她甚至不去打聽是否有另一家航空公司的班機飛西安。她說她只坐港龍。

香港人對港龍航空的感情是很深厚的,參加旅行團去內地,看到用的是港龍,心裡就會踏實一點,覺得這個團的保障大一點,即使收得貴一點也不要緊。

飛內地城市,港龍的機票是比其他航空公司貴,但對於香港人來說,它依然是首選。

這就是地位。

要建立這樣的地位,必須付出不懈的努力,航班的安排、機艙的服務、準時的航程、安全的紀錄,缺一不可。

尤其是在內地旅行,當你聽見機場不斷宣布航機延誤或取消的廣播時,停機坪上停著的那架港龍航機,就是一顆最大的定心丸。

你知道,可以準時回家。

對於香港人來說,從外地踏進港龍班機的機艙,空姐親切的微笑,一份當天的香港報紙,乘客用廣東話問空姐︰「今日香港熱唔熱?」那種感覺,其實已經回家了。

經常出門旅行的人,都會有一家心儀的航空公司。

對於香港旅客來說,心裡認準的有兩家。

飛外國的,是國泰。飛內地的,是港龍。
Exactly how I feel.
