As you all know, 60% of Dragonair's shares are being owned by Cathay Pacific.

However, which airline group is bigger? In terms of Assets, number of planes, number of routes, passenger miles?

I know Singapore Airlines is bigger than Cathay Pacific. However, if we put both Dragonair and Cathay together, VS SIA, which one is bigger?

All ideas are welcome!

If you group Dragonair and Cathay you also have to group SIA and Silk Air (because Silk Air is owned by SIA)

Allthough CathayPacific and Dragon Air have the vast Chinese market on its doorstep, it appears Singapore Airlines(with its subsidiary Silk Air) is still the bigger of the two - and I think this is mainly on the strength of Singapore Airlines alone. I know for a fact they have more flights, more destinations and a larger fleet.

You sure? Coz I know Dragonair also has quite a number of planes. Besides, it has a strong market in China, the largest developing country in the world.

Now, Dragon Air is not the subsidary of Cathay Pacific. Cathay Pacific+Swire Group only holds about 10-20% of Dragonair's shares. The largest holder is a Chinese government owned company. It holds more than 50% of Dragonair's shares. So, you cannot CX+KA. Why don't Dragonair and Cathay Pacific operate the same route? It is because of Hong Kong Government policy.

I'm not too sure how you would scientifically group them together and measure their size. If Cathay's minority Dragonair stake is to be lumped together with Cathay, I guess Singapore's size should be measured not only with SilkAir, but with Virgin Atlantic, Air New Zealand and Ansett Australia. And for example, British Airways with Qantas, if we're using the same system.

I think it would be Singapore Airlines Group Pte Ltd. however I think they should dump SilkAir. It looks bad on them.


Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.
