I see you can earn Asia Miles on HK express now that Cathay Pacific have taken over, will we be able to earn any one world benefits ?

No.
The Reward-U program under HK Express will cease from 31 Dec and all Reward-U members will instead get 1 Asia Mile for every 8 points.
I hope Cathay Pacific will integrate HK Express into OneWorld Connect and become a Business Class only airline.

Why on earth would a low cost carrier change strategy and become an all business class airline? HKG has more than enough competition with high end carriers.

I think the proposition was that CATHAY would become an all-business class airline. Which is never going to happen.

I also think it unlikely that HK Express will become a oneworld connect airline given that it would mean lounge access for top tier oneworld members - I just can't imagine that the economics would justify that.
