So they're in effect going to go on strike but 'technically' be at work so they will still expect to get paid?

Heavens . . . how awful! Why, then they'd be just like the American carriers!

Have we just been in the midst of an extended cabin attendant union dispute my entire adult life?

No food, alcohol or smiles?

Isn't that the scene where the cheating businessman comes home and the housewife is waiting for him with the just-discovered evidence?

But the elves cannot go on strike a Christmas. Santa could lose his monopoly.

And if Chinese labor goes on strike the end is near.

Considering the hell flying is these days, the housewife has it easy.

A Chinese filibuster?

Be glad they don't use the passengers to practice their martial arts.

Do they fly to Detroit?

Tsundere flight attendants? And if Cathay Pacific managers further trick them into wearing maid outfits they will never have another empty seat...
