    In February, Chinese pilots held a strike against long working hours accusing China Airlines management of insincerity and mistreating its workforce to keep costs down and asking for better conditions.

    A pilot in a China Airlines uniform has been captured on video sitting motionless in the cockpit of a Boeing 747 with his head bent forward, seemingly in a state of deep sleep, which is forbidden by the company's rules. The unknown pilot reportedly has about 20 years of experience, mainly flying the Tokyo, Okinawa, Seoul, and Hong Kong routes.
