Hong Kong, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 14th Aug, 2019 ) :Cathay Pacific has flown into a storm of controversy generated by the Hong Kong protests that has left it trying to appease an angry Beijing while not alienating its home market.
Over the past week the airline has emerged as a target on the mainland after some of its 27,000-strong workforce took part in, or voiced support for, the protests.
It also ordered the carrier to hand over identity information for employees on mainland-bound flights -- declaring unapproved flights would not be allowed in.
It has since fired two employees, suspended a pilot linked to the demonstrations and said it will comply with China's regulators.
