In a letter to company employees yesterday, China Airlines (CAL) Chairman Ho Nuan-hsuan (何煖軒) implored his staff to “be rational” and said he was watching out for the interests of company staff and shareholders.

Ho’s appeal was made following a protest by CAL’s flight attendants last Friday, during which as many as 500 eggs were smashed on CAL’s Taipei headquarters. The protesters claimed that management had failed to honor five of the seven pledges it made in a deal brokered with company staff earlier.
