Are loads bad .... Why would anyone be flying!Jump to post
No way should a pilot group accept this... and should stand with the FA group. Just because management can’t find some middle ground with the FA union they decide to take the nuclear option. Glad this would never fly among the US airlines. Definitely crazy times!!! Yeah .. just all fight the compan...Jump to post

25/05/20: TF-AAL 744 Air Atlanta was in Hong Kong last night from Jakarta. Very rare one here.Jump to post
Global Times is one of the worst Chinese media outlets, full of blatant racism, lies, and extreme nationalism. I would take anything they say with a grain of salt. China has a lot more to lose cutting its ties with Boeing, and becoming a price taker of whatever Airbus offers instead. The phase 1 tr...Jump to post
Just another chance for the haters to hate. As a passenger the A380 is the most comfortable ride I have ever been on. Well said... Let them hate, we know they love the 380...but they just can't say it. SUPER comfortable and smooth.... Not to mention so quiet. Not sure what I'll book my holidays aro...Jump to post
Clearly not entered service yet after leaving EK. Why.... That's a good question.Jump to post
You can almost feel the hope they won't come back.... Just pathetic.
It's a real shame the A380 did not fit all Airlines as its simply the best plane to fly on as a passenger (for those of us in Y anyway) it's so quiet inside.... My opionon after flights on BA and LH.

Seems selfish to still go to work while you may have a virus that is currently affecting most of the world.

Surprised if any airline needs any new aircraft this year... the way things are going....Jump to post

Exactly! And we thought 10 across was bad...LOL You do realize that on most flights, even those taking place during daylight hours, flight attendants will insist that the window shades stay closed for almost the entire trip so people can sleep and watch the seatback entertainment. So. In a way we'r...Jump to post

China, as a whole, is essentially an island right now, travel-wise.

Correct me if I'm wrong but once you land harder than the limit it doesn't matter if there is any visible problem.... You ground it for checks.
Clearly some here wanted it to be a big deal but it wasn't. Seeing its flying already and did the ferry flight pressurized.
I listened to the recording, did the pilots not say they won't dump fuel?
Should you dump fuel without informing ATC... at least so low over a city?
The second frequency did ask for the POB and fuel AGAIN.. This was a little annoying so I understand people talking about this.
My guess is China since they order in big batches and they don’t list the individual airlines till delivery. I think China is in no position to take more widebody aircraft right now. The biggest airline, Hainan, is getting rid of its A350 and 787 orders. They ordered too many aircraft. Hainan have ...Jump to post
Not something most airlines would have on the planes given the current situation.Jump to post
What’s the fuss all about? 787 EFB has been a touch screen since EIS, so this is hardly innovative... I agree, nothing new to aviation. I don’t think it is actually new to the A350 either, it was an option available that we could have had from the outset. Sam chui says its news, how dare you questi...Jump to post
Makes sense it's the wing slide. If it was a door, pilots would have gotten a door indication in addition to hearing a bang. I would hope that the pilots would get a cockpit indicator of some sort. Deltas 757/767 fleet is getting a bit tired. I do find it funny how the BA A320 fume event does not g...Jump to post
This year we will be happy to see HKIA drop out of 10 top busiest airport. What a truly sad person. Don't worry, HKIA will be back. I am sympathetic to SQ32 viewpoint as I think it is a result of censoring of news in mainland China. I think what we are seeing with Hong Kong Airlines is actually fai...Jump to post

Did HKG - MUC - LHR - MUC - HKG in Y last year, service was fantastic. Small change like this would not stop me flying with them.Jump to post

I seem to be missing something here, how can a 773F carry 20 tons more compared to the 777F at 50% the cost? If that was actually practical, FX & 5X would have gone after the 773s a long time ago. The -300ERSF’s maximum structural payload of 101.6t and greater volume than the 777F mean it is op...Jump to post
Hong Kong Airlines is downsizing their operation due to recent events at Hong Kong and they are not making money. Returning and grounding aircraft to their lessors. Cutting frequency. Few current A330 are also stored at HKG at the moment. They are not taking any new delivery too. Yeah. But till now...Jump to post
Besides those cancelling visits to HKG, I bet many(especially business clients) are avoiding booking CX entirely as transiting HKG airport is a gamble. Yes and it surprises me that CX isn't even trying. I have a trip from Europe to Asia coming up and CX was not even the cheapest option except for a...Jump to post

I personally know individuals who have spent time in Chinese prison for non-crimes. HK business is done if they lose their independence. Too much of what makes Hong Kong work, such as rule of law, is on the line. How much will traffic and tourism drop if HK losses what makes them unique? Tourism tr...Jump to post
