RE: CX To Merge With Air China?

Looks like to me that China's flag carrier might actually lose the flag one day. I think the intention of this merger is a very good one. China wanting Air China to be a major global player in terms of service and sheer size is trying to find a suitable partner that will help them achieve this goal....

With this bill, China has made clear its intention and will. That is they will defend Taiwan territory as their territory integrity and sovereignty. Not even 2008 Olympics is going to stop them as they have said so.
