Not an issue unique to Cathay this, just that I happen to be sat in their Changi lounge (which is very good in my view) my flight is, however, “re-timed” which given that it’s currently been “re-timed” for 45 minutes later than the scheduled departure time, means that I assume that “re-timed” is the latest corporate gobbledegook for delayed. Which seems to me to far more accurately reflect the situation. Appreciate that having to endure another glass of MoÃ«t is almost the definition of a first world problem. My wife just rolls her eyes when I vent my frustration at the pervasive creep of this corporate spin that has to be put on everything! Can’t you just call it what it is!

Spades became digging apparatus. I think now they're dimension facilitators.

Yes, "re-timed" is silly corporate-speak for delayed and rescheduled.

'Rescheduled' is already a euphemism, 'retimed' is newspeak on top!

Tommygun. If you don’t work in corporate comms then it’s a career opportunity that will always be there for you. Brilliant😀
