Should Jetstar Hong Kong be running? If they do, they'll open up access to many destinations from HKG but then Australia would soon control Hong Kong Airport due to how popular the destinations Jetstar Hong Kong proposed are (i.e. Asahikawa, Saipan etc.)
[poll temporarily removed]
Note: If you're bombing me about the fact that this is AusBT not HKBT, at least Jetstar's Australian owned and if Hong Kong got invaded by too many Jetstar travellers then the Qantas Company would have most fault, so...I think it's at least partly reasonable to post this question in AusBT.

That's a subtle way to link your own webpage

"Found a poll here"...?
Alvin, this is your own website!
Uh...tonedoggy99 and S, that's a long story that would take a long time to go through, so please (with a cherry mud pie on top or something) don't focus on that.

I don't think Australia would 'soon control HK airport', in fact I don't think Jetstar HK will actually have too much of an impact of Cathay if they stick to the primarily leisure and Chinese routes, but Dragonair maybe. Without trying to sound condescending or what have you, I honestly think you're making some ill-informed claims here. Being Hong Kong-based yourself, wouldn't this be of benefit to you anyway?

Agree with you Alvin this is better suited to HKBT and you should ask questions like this to them or set it up yourself. Questions in this forum should be relevant to Australian business travelers. Most of your questions are irrelevant to this criteria. JQ HK will have little impact on the Australian business as it will never get off the ground. Are you purely interested in the ladder board??

I suggest a new question: "Should Alvin be spamming AusBT with links to his own website and idiotic aviationgeek questions which really have no interest to AusBT?"
Alvin, what on earth is the purpose of a question like "Should Jetstar Hong Kong be running?". It probably will get up, unless Qantas pulls the plug. Either way, how does anybody's answer to your idiotic question make any difference?
Should Alvin be banned from AUSBT?
OK - I understand I've been posting some irrelevant questions in here. What if I ban myself from asking any more questions? I'll still reply on threads and posts. I won't waste anyone's time anymore that way and I'll still be able to express my thoughts.

tronixstuff has a point there. I understand that you already have a website but I get the impression that you do not fly Business/First all that often so I fail to see how you can accurately report on it without a lot of hearsay.
While I don't mind your questions by themselves, I don't think you're publishing them to the right place. A lot of your questions are from the perspective of an aviation enthusiast but AusBT's primary audience is Australia-based business travellers. Have you tried posting these questions on FlyerTalk or Airliners.net? You'd probably receive a warmer reception there.
Furthermore, I failed to see the point of 'Yay <airline name>!' posts whenever there's an AusBT article about an airline announcing something. Why not post an well articulated opinion about the article rather than a simple expression of your excitement?
Please take this feedback as constructive criticism and not an argument against your participation here. As long as its relevant and offers your perspective then please continue to post.

I'd probably recommend Airliners.net over FlyerTalk for Alvin's interests, it being more geared to civil aviation enthusiasts rather than award hacks, mileage junkies and status tragics.
