I believe QF has a JV with both MU and CZ, and HU owns part of VA.
Tough for CA to find feed beyond low yield at the AU end?

Will it then be possible to fully transit from T1 to S1/2 to T2 after the opening of the satellite terminals? Both T1 and T2 feel not particularly premium which is odd given that PVG no doubt is the most lucrative international airport in China.
