Re: CAAC issued security warning against Cathay over Hong Kong protest, ban protest-supporting staffs from flying into C

HKG/CX is the hub for Taiwanese flying to Europe. Could the situation reverse if CX has issues with overflying China from North America and many transfer in TPE instead?

Re: Airbus threatens to leave UK if no Brexit Deal

No they didn`t make a ill-informed decision. Those that sugest it are just the people that don`t like/want it. It`s also nonsence to suggest the UK hasn`t made efforts for a decent seperation, you`ve been reading too much biased press. Seems to me they`ve been bending over backwards to the point I ...

Re: Business Insider: How major airlines refer to Taiwan

History left a bizarre situation in aviation, that the China Airlines is the flag carrier of another country other than China itself, at least not THE China we recognise today. Though almost all the world sees Taiwan as a country now, it’s the ‘Republic of China’ appears on its passport, this must h...

Re: Qantas defines ULR requirements, delays order decision

Does QF want to start service to LHR/JFK from SYD only or MEL/BNE are also on the radar?

Re: Greater China Thread - 2018

According to China Airlines President Hsieh, CI is still considering whether the A350-1000 is the right aircraft for CI. In the US, only Los Angeles can support the capacity of the aircraft type. However, as the O&D market is small and more countries (likely referring to SE Asia) are launching ...
