賓架出差升呢

轉眼又快過半年,大家注意的是本港股市能否帶來斬獲,以恒指昨日收報22,061點,及去年底見23,035點計,至今即跌974點,挫4.2%,回報欠奉,而希臘綜合指數由逾1,400點起步至周一收市1,226點計,瀉約12.4%,相信屬環球股市重災區之一。不要忘記,希臘股市於去年經已重創47.2%,屬最傷的一個,但有危有機,且看歐盟和國際貨幣基金組織(IMF)能否扶一把,基金自然入市掃貨。

市況雖麻麻,上半年投資銀行似乎生意不俗,且從對員工的待遇已可略知一二,瑞銀早前已放寬對旗下員工的出差規定。自金融海嘯後,投行樣樣縮,特別是乘搭飛機,如瑞銀規定航程需達6小時或以上,方可選搭商務客位,若以此計算,由香港出發,在亞太區大部分主要城市無論是東京或北京;新加坡或吉隆坡,也只能塞入經濟客位了,起碼要飛澳洲悉尼才享有商務艙的待遇。

今日他們的同事出差時,倘若飛行時間在3小時或以上時,買機票時便已經可以獲得客艙升級了,從經濟客位轉買商務位了。從航程計,唯一無法享受這種待遇的,可能是由香港往來上海,畢竟僅兩小時30分鐘罷了。

生意好,卻可能與家庭聚會的時間便要犧牲了。最近與投行賓架朋友談起,一拿電話,傳來的聲音已有點與正常的有所不同,朋友亦坦承身處海外,正好剛到埗,佢話近期飛完菲律賓,回港不久又去印度,之後再走一趟星洲,不要以為純粹在亞太區而已,原來早前一段時間已往歐洲轉了一個大圈呢!禤中怡打趣問,美國有嘛?那邊聲音傳來自然是無一倖免,返回內地更已是指定動作,不算是出外公幹,那麼豈不是30日環遊世界?

朋友大呻,未知航空公司的生意是否太好,即使搭商務客位竟也要等等等!原來準備在一個周日下午4時乘國泰(293)班機離港,Check in時,地勤人員竟著他搭下一班機,一延就是4個小時,補償只有那些機上購物的coupon而已,朋友質疑是否overbooking,並哀嘆,早知如此,倒不如遲點出發,留在家中多享受一點天倫樂。錢與家庭的抉擇對打工仔而言,確實難分難解。

幸好,朋友隨即報告好消息話,未知航空公司是否知道他的境況,最近這趟遠行竟獲升級,從商務調往頭等艙,儘管只是一隻手也數完的航程,也視作補償了。見到這種場面,相信航空股的業務也不會差到哪裡去吧!因為有客登機,兼且那張機票也算有肉食。

但市場交投量持續萎縮,加上華府推行金融改革,帶來不明朗因素,市場已傳大行如高盛、摩根士丹利和美國銀行等計劃裁員或節流。朋友附和話,管理開支的部門主管最近確頻頻向他呻,是否需要經常出門,那些IDD又是否如此必要,或是僅屬私人通訊而已,可見投行也開始留意使費了,但對比那張機票和酒店的開支,IDD開支真的如此重要?抑或對管理開支另有一套?
