    That’s what I thought... :)

    It must be one out of a Lancaster or similar, then.

    There goes the servicing on the 355 !!!

    Servicing a 355 or Testarossa is equivalent to the GDP of a small country :(

    Very sad. IMHO Cathay is one of the best airlines in the world.

    Gary, how long can they sit there without needing a major engineering check to be airworthy again?

    Glad to hear you say that... hope you’re right; the numbers have been bad for a long time before Wuhan.

    Not really Karen... We made record profits in the first half of last financial year and then the protests started.... We did a transformation in the company cutting costs and becoming more efficient and we were on our way to breaking even the second half...The virus has absolutely killed HKG now. CX is a big player on the world stage and there are a lot of smaller companies struggling as they no longer have CX as a major income source. This includes Australia. The Hotels and food industry would be bleeding as well because of what’s happening. Maybe some people need to be educated that there are things in life you don’t eat. Bats and rats are 2 disease ridden animals you don’t touch. You only have to look back in history to see what they are capable of doing....
