• Are you saying that Dragonair, a joint venture between  Air China CITIC and Swire Pacific, was better than the world's first best airline?You must not have flown Dragonair in a long time. They were rebranded as Cathay Dragon and... even Hong Kong's own media is asking themselves: what happen...

  • As I explained to someone just now, A Singapore Airlines rep once explained to me: Air New Zealand base in Auckland, with feeder Air New Zealand LinkNow look at the map, flip NZ laterally, and move it over to WA... Virgin Australia in Perth with feeder XYZFlip that opposite of WA, and y...

  • NOW then they announce this.My branding agency was one of the final selection tenders when AIr New Zealand called for branding proposals for "Elite ONE" back in 2015?

  • Doesn't he have control of EVA AIr right now? If so, I expect MOST routes to be taken over by Starlux, the arguably superior brand name. I think he should acquire Starflyer whenever ANA feels ready to sell, to be the LCC. I'm sure the regulatory authorities will find EVA Air UNI Air a bit un...
