Dear Members, It has been a week since the operation of the new retrofit of 3-4-3 seat pairing on our 777 fleets. With an increase of the aircraft capacity to carry more passengers inflight, this simply means an increased Crew-to-Pax ratio and a longer time for service. Not only a greater burden on workload of Crew Members is anticipated, but more, it would be on the passenger side that they might have to wait longer until a Crew Member can attend to them in the service delivery. Together with other issues such as the luggage problem due to the insufficient overhead compartments for stowing more passengers’ bags and the inefficiency in the replenishment of entrees and drinks during service. All of which in real-hand practice deserve a review for the best of both passengers and operating crew, and ISD should be informed in this regard. We have to emphasise that Manpower is always our priority concern. Cabin Crew are not robots and it is merely non-sense to come with the “Can-Do” spirit on such a difficulty in real operations. Most importantly, we value each of our passengers, and the quality of service shall not be compromised with any deficiency originated from the design of the aircrafts. Hence, we need all of you to speak out for yourself. In any chance you experience any impracticality and difficulty on the new retrofit aircrafts which require an improvement, please do not hesitate to send your valuable feedbacks to ISD#CXSERVICE and ISD#TECH, meanwhile CC firstname.lastname@example.org. We can make a difference! Thank you.

Dear members, FAU has received numerous of enquiries regarding the disapproval of their swaps due to ULRO requirements. According to CAD 18.104.22.168 - "immediately prior to a Rostered Duty cycle containing a ULRO which is greater than 16 hours in sector time(i.e. block hour is 16:01 or more), Cabin Crew will receive a period of not less than 2 days off prior the scheduled ULRO". This would means that if your flight duty ex-HKG has a scheduled sector time greater than 16 hours(i.e.block hour is 16:01 or more) , you are required to have 2 Gs before the flight. For ex-outport, 2 outport Gs is required if sector time is greater than 16 hours(i.e. block hour is 16:01 or more) on return sector. Based on point 22.214.171.124 - "On completion of a ULRO duty cycle with either sector ex-HKG or ex-outport is greater than 16(i.e.block hour is 16:01 or more) a recovery period of 4G should be followed when return home base". This is the reason of why some ULRO swaps were being disapproved because the scheduled sector time ex-HKG for some flights been adjusted in which is greater than 16 hours (i.e.block hour is 16:01 or more). Therefore, 2 Gs before and 4 Gs after is required to fullfill the CAD requirement. In here, we encourage our members to send email to ISD#ENQ and FOP#HELP, and cc FAU if you're still in doubt. Please bear mind that all timing mentioned here is based on "SCHEDULED" sector time. It's nothing related to ACTUAL sector time. Thank you for your attention.
Dear Members, In March we received emails from Members about the NRT allowance discrepancy. In Port & Route it states that NRT hotel has offered a special rate breakfast at JPN¥1000. However, the crew only received JPN¥800 as breakfast allowance. Therefore, FAU immediately brought this up in the meeting with ISD for clarification. ISD admitted that there is a discrepancy & confirmed that all affected crew will be reimbursed the difference (i.e. those who had operated NRT flight from 1 - 8 March 2018 and had received the breakfast allowance during the layover). The reimbursement will be paid in March salary. We appreciated our Members’ alertness and hope this reporting habit can continue. Thank you.
Dear Members, Outport Allowance review is carried out each year in February and August. In October 2017, your ExCo revealed that the allowance in ORD (Chicago) Hotel was not paid according to the Outport Allowance Agreement, 28.8% (5-day pattern) discrepancy has occurred. ISD explained that they were NOT informed by the hotel that the restaurant menu was updated, therefore there was a discrepancy. Finally when ORD allowance was reviewed in February, the discrepancy of allowance was resolved. At the same time, FAU received some feedbacks from our Members that the breakfast allowance in Nagoya Marriott Associa Hotel is different from the actual price that is charged to the crew. According to “Port & Hotel Info” on IntraCX, “A special rate of JPY1,250 inclusive of tax and gratuities for the American breakfast set plate at 'Pergola' Restaurant.” However, crew members were told by hotel staff that only breakfast buffet is available and 20% discount will be offered. However, there is no reply from ISD yet. Now, we need your help to cross check with the hotel if you will to stay in this hotel in the coming future. FAU would like to share with our Members that everyone can monitor and safeguard our allowance, please continue to report any discrepancy of allowance if you found any. *According to the agreement signed in 2015, meal allowance is paid based on the menu of Cabin Crew hotel medium priced Western style restaurant. If no medium restaurant exists in the hotel then the prices are based on the most expensive hotel coffee shop prices or the lower end of the top class hotel restaurant (if one exists). Please refer to FAU Website or logbook for more details. Thank you.
FAU 嚴正聲明 本會收到不少會員查詢，有人冒認並以FAU名義致電本會會員，呼籲會員投票給指定建制派候選人。 本會嚴正聲明，本會從無向任何會員致電呼籲及引導他們的投票意向。 本會一向立場清晰，只支持為香港民主，公義發聲的候選人。會員應先了解各候選人的政綱及過往政績才將神聖一票投下。 對於有人冒認本工會打電話給會員一事，予以強烈譴責，並會保留追究權利， 絕對不會姑息! 本會對保障會員私隱絕對責無旁貸。 如發現資料庫被入侵，必定報警處理及採取法律行動。 謹此 澄清 國泰空中服務員工會
各位會員： 今天是立法會補選的日子，補選的原因是有數位立法會議員遭到政府取消資格所致。本會認為不論在民主路上，還是勞工議題，香港都面對著重重難關和挑戰，著實需要寸土必爭。 由九巴解僱葉女仕等事件中可以看到，香港的勞工法例對打工仔保障不足，特別曾經立法的「集體談判權」也在回歸後遭到取消。這正是由於不少政黨，甚至是打著「幫工人」旗號的組織有份投票造成的。故此，本會盼望各會員能團結一致，踴躍投票，選出一個會為香港爭取民主和改善勞工待遇的議員。 *投票時間為早上7:30至晚上10:30。 https://www.facebook.com/faucpa/photos/a.585196058194000.1073741829.583671955013077/1649875998392662/?type=3
國泰空中服務員工會就九巴「秋後算賬」解僱罷工車長一事發出聲明 對於九龍巴士公司以「先談判，後解僱」葉蔚琳等四名車長，本工會表示震怒，認為九巴沒有正視員工訴求，漠視社會責任；本會強調，解決提出問題的人，不等於解決問題！ 九巴管理層解僱有關車長的理由竟然是因為 “有關員工於執行職務時，擅自離開工作崗位或停駛，對乘客安全構成威脅，決定終止僱傭關係”。 此說法根本是偏離事實，因為該車長當時是在巴士站內將巴士停泊在一旁，以最平靜的方去向公司表達不滿，根本沒有影響到其他乘客的安全。 而且，今次的事件的觸發點是因為九巴一月時發生嚴重交通意外，才引發起車長及員工對自身工作的休息時間、薪酬及公眾安全的反思，是正常不過的事。 再加上，九巴於月前所提出的所謂「加薪方案」，不過是玩弄數字的「假加薪」，對於勤懇工作的員工實在是莫大侮辱。 公司應理性地與有關員工商討，令九巴日後的服務質素、員工待遇、及全香港乘客安全得以改進。 好明顯，九巴現在就是看中葉小姐他們在「罷工」時，並不是以工會會員的身分，事後便能隨意解僱他們。 九巴此舉，簡直是想測試市民容忍度的底線。 所有打工仔必須站在同一陣線，對抗無良僱主。 若果作為弱勢者不團結一致，只依附強權，那麼只會造就更多恃勢凌人的僱主。 回想罷工當日，四位車長以生計作賭注，為的並非是自己，而是為同工爭取合理的權益。 難道大家仍能對不合理的壓榨視而不見？抑或默默承受以求所謂的安穩生活？ 正如葉小姐所言，如果被僱主這樣對待欺凌，還能啞忍的話，所有打工仔都再沒將來，全香港都沒將來了！ 本會現呼籲會員及各界打工仔到場聲援葉小姐及九巴員工，及考慮在不同範疇進行抗議，包括「罷坐九巴」等行動；本會亦會積極留意事態發展，與職工盟等組織進行商議，如有需要，必定全力支持任何為打工仔爭取平等待遇的抗爭。 謹此 國泰空中服務員工會 https://www.facebook.com/faucpa/photos/a.585196058194000.1073741829.583671955013077/1645024065544522/?type=3

How to calculate FDP for CX City Standby Dear Members, Having lots of ??? in mind for CX City Standby? Please read on to understand more. CX City Standby (0730 - 1230) FDP begins at 0730. Maximum allowable FDP would be 12hours 15 mins and begins at the point of 0730. Example 1 : CX City standby begins at 0730, call to operate CX406/467 with reporting time at 1045 and engine off at 1655. The FDP shall count from 0730 to 1655, a total of 9 hours 25 mins. ( *According to FAU agreement, a SB shall be given to FAU Member for FDP exceeding 9 hours.) Example 2 : CX City standby begins at 0730, is it legal to call you for CX418/419? The answer is "NO"! CX419 schedule arrival time is at 2250, therefore FDP counts from 0730 to 2250 is 15 hours 20 mins in which has exceeded the maximum FDP of 12 hours 15 min and therefore it is illegal. To be more precise, Crew Members who begin their CX city standby at 0730 and is being call out for flights, their flight duty ( engine off ) must end before 1945. Any FDP ended after 1945 is considered as “ILLEGAL Operation.” Please ensure your ISM and Captain is aware of your FDP start time. We hope that this would give you a clearer picture towards the calculation of the FDP and able to ease some of your worries. Your ExCo has also raised our enquiry on the rotational record and eligibility of meal vouchers. By now, you would be able to understand that CX City standby is not feasible as a long term practice and should only be used for the transition period from 90 mins to 135 mins during standby call out time.
