    how much mandatory provident fund paid by Cathay Pacific?

    a friend of mine recently offered a ground position in Cathay Pacific airway in hong kong. her employer paid only effectively 1% of her base salary, while flying position such as Second officer is being paid 15.5%. is this normal difference between ground and flying positon in Cathay? also the annual leave is 18 days instead of 21 days for Second officer.

    This question is much better asked in the Fragrant Harbour Wannabes forum over at PPRuNe Forums - Professional Pilots Rumour Network

    But I believe ground staff will get the legal minimum MPF (5% up to a cap of $1000 per month) and the pilots get much better deals. Pilots only fly a maximum of 90 hours a month as well. Presumably your friend works about 160 hours.

    I'm curious, what ground position has your friend been offered?

    It's possible that the flight crews are on an ORSO plan rather than the MPF, which would explain the 15.5%
