These days I blog a lot about Hong Kong because I like and am concerned about HK. I had my first international nightstop in HK way back in 1968 and somehow is quite sentimental about the place and people.
I hope HK will returned to normality again.

Pilots offloaded due to drinking is rare

Pilots not allowed to fly due to consumption of alcohol as in SQ 247 recently is rare. As far as I can remember there was only another occasion whereby the captain of a flight was bumped off due to drinking alcohol. This happened some 30 over years ago. Strangely, a pilot from another airline complained to the authorities when he noticed the captain appeared intoxicated drunk they checked out of a hotel in Bangkok.
There were more cases of stewards reported for drinking during flight. However, without 1 or 2 cabin crew, the flight would still operate.

Cabin crew are insignificant (not important)

SQ is an accident waiting to happen.
