Please make us all understand how Cathay Pacific is not a major airline.
Do you do research on the definition of a major? Guess not.
To answer you question about this MAJOR airline. All SO's are based out of Hong Kong first and it usually takes about 3 years to upgrade to FO. The pay is very good right off the bat, about 80K USD. That includes retirement and housing allowence. You also get good schedules out of Hong Kong. If you go to the Cathay Pacific websight they spell out the minimums.
All in all a very good gig if you don't mind Hong Kong. Guys take SO over FO, depends on your preference.

Can you tell us again how great cathay is?
Brown Cow said:Please spare us yet another Cathay thread in the wrong forum. This question has been answered a million times in other threads.......please do a search.
At any rate, it depends on whether you get hired as a direct entry FO or a SO. The FO's are in the US and other places and the SO's are in HK. Your base is wherever they need you.
But again, please do a search!!!

Is the Freighter scale different from Pax?
