The fallout in Hong Kong from the restructuring of Cathay Pacific and the mass layoffs, continued Thursday morning. Civic Party legislator Jeremy Tam, who is a former Cathay Pacific pilot, said the airline should not have announced large-scale layoffs of staff in the name of restructuring and call it a commercial decision. He also questioned the role of the two government observers on the Cathay Pacific board, who were installed after the company received a HK$39 billion government-led bailout. Executive councillor, Ip Kwok-him, said it was important for Hong Kong to guard its status as an aviation hub.
