Those pictures where taken on 05/31, the last day of operation of this last A300 in the fleet of China Eastern.

Next up for retirement are the A340-600s which will be replaced by the new 777-300ERs that will start to join the fleet very soon. They will end up with a pretty standard long haul fleet of A330-200s, A330-300s and 777-300ERs. That's pretty straight forward compared to the mixed fleets of Air China and China Southern..

We also have different threads for Korean Air and Air Koryo, to have a separate Chinese thread and a Taiwanese thread isn't that strange.

This thread is for PRC-based airlines. It is very easy to differentiate between these carriers and Taiwan-based China Airlines by looking at the airplane registration code. Same for Hong Kong and Macau-based airlines.

Under the eyes of international aviation, China Airlines is not a PRC-based carrier.

This is not a thread for airlines with China in its name.

Wow, patel2897 your comments indicate that you are truly an ignorant person.

I encourage you to quickly go to wikipedia and read through the sad history of Taiwan (Formosa). Understand that we are talking about a very sensitive issue.

Low-budget carrier opens Shanghai-Seoul flights
14 August 2014
Copyright 2014 China Daily Information Company. All Rights Reserved.

China's largest low-budget carrier Spring Airlines announced Wednesday the launch of its second direct route to South Korea, a step to further complete its East Asian aviation network as domestic market becomes more saturated.

Spring Airlines Co Ltd, a privately run carrier based in Shanghai, said a direct flight between Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Seoul Incheon International Airport will start service on September 23. The new direct flight, available on every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, is the 11th international route it added this year.

According to Zhang Wu'an, spokesman for the carrier, international flights currently account for 18 percent of its total flights, but still lags behind the target of 25 percent set for this year.

Low fare remains the biggest attraction of the carrier's new route, as passengers are able to order tickets for as low as of 99 yuan ($16).

Prior to the new route, Spring Airlines operated Shanghai-Jeju Island service. Jeju is the largest island in South Korea and a popular destination for Chinese tourists.

China Eastern A340-600, "Expo 2010: Better City, Better Life" (reg. B-6055)


To clarify things up:

Chinese carriers have different registration numbers than its Hong Kong, Macau, or Republic of China (Taiwan) counterparts, such that:

Hong Kong SAR: B-HAA to HZZ, B-KAA to KZZ, B-LAA to LZZ
Macau SAR: B-MAA to MZZ
(People's Republic of) China: B-XXXX (also shared with Taiwan, all digits)
Taiwan (Republic of China): B-XXXXX (typically B-18XXX to 22xxx)

Don't think it is the airline' fault, but ATC not on top of their game :

China Eastern plane aborts landing as traffic controllers take a nap

BEIJING, Aug 19 (Reuters) - A China Eastern Airlines Corp passenger plane that had started its night-time descent into a Wuhan airport was forced to abort its landing after air traffic controllers had dozed off, an investigation report found.

The incident, which took place on July 8, is the third mishap in two months involving the Chinese carrier.

A transcript of the flight recording released by the Civil Aviation Administration of China on Tuesday shows that the China Eastern flight crew made repeated attempts to contact the duty flight controllers at Wuhan Tianhe Airport - twice in English and once in Chinese. Those calls went unanswered.

The airplane was forced to return to 900 metres and circle the airport for about 10 minutes before landing, the report said. The incident occurred at between 2 to 3 a.m.

China Eastern has suffered other mishaps in recent weeks. On July 17, a China Eastern airplane landed off the runway in the southwest city of Nanning.

Three days later, another China Eastern plane veered off the runway shortly after it touched down at Changzhi airport in Shanxi province amid heavy rain, causing a temporary closure of the airport. No casualties were involved in either incidents.

China Eastern and CAAC were unavailable for comment.

Chinese airlines have boasted an improved safety record in recent years, following a crash in 2004 that killed 53 people.

Air China's H1 net profit slides 58 pct

HONG KONG, Aug 26 (Reuters) - China's flagship carrier Air China Ltd said on Tuesday first-half net profit fell 58 percent, weighed down by a depreciating yuan that increased financial costs.

Air China said net income fell to 474.4 million yuan ($77 million), compared with 1.12 billion yuan it booked for the same period a year ago.

The Beijing-based carrier said foreign exchange net losses for the first six months of the year amounted to 721 million yuan ($117.19 million), compared with foreign exchange net earnings of 1.12 billion yuan for the same period last year.

In July, the company warned its first-half earnings would fall as much as 65 percent year-on-year.

Chinese airlines used to have huge currency gains thanks to a strong yuan, partly because aircraft they order from Boeing Co and Airbus Group NV are settled in dollars.

In recent months, however, Beijing allowed the yuan to slide to punish speculators, increasing volatility in the market.

With the end of the yuan's consistent appreciation against the dollar, carriers have been challenged on two fronts -- operating costs and foreign currency-denominated debt.

Air China's Hong Kong-listed shares closed down 1.8 percent on Friday ahead of the earnings result, lagging a 0.4 percent fall for the broader market.

(1 US dollar = 6.1522 Chinese yuan)

China Southern downgrades first-class in name due to anti-corruption drive

BEIJING, Aug 26 (Reuters) - China Southern Airlines Co Ltd plans to change the name of its first-class cabin to business class in a bid to reclaim official customers amid Beijing's crackdown on wasteful government spending.

All passengers sitting in the newly named business class will enjoy the same service as first-class customers after the change takes effect on Oct. 26, the carrier said in a statement. The move will include China Southern's narrow-body jets flying domestic routes.

Chinese air carriers have been hit hard by the government's anti-corruption campaign, which has generated a sharp decline in business and first-class travel. China Eastern Airlines last year alone lost 1 million premier clients, or 1.1 billion yuan ($178.79 million) in revenue, according to a report posted on the eastday.com news website in February.

China Southern executives couldn't be reached for comment. A ticket agent said the carrier currently offers first class, premium economy and economy seats for most domestic routes. It is unclear whether first-class fares will be cut after the name change.

The initiative, which has not been matched by Air China , China Eastern, or Hainan Airlines Co, has spurred heated debate on WeChat, a popular mobile messaging app.

Some expect the name-change to bolster China Southern's passenger load capacity while others say the move is the airline "returning to the reality".

For its part, China Southern said in its statement the name change is "to satisfy market demand".

Chinese President Xi Jinping has made cutting back on extravagance and waste a key theme of his administration, seeking to assuage anger at corruption and restore faith in the party.

Last year, China banned officials from holding extravagant galas linked to official meetings, which has hurt the image of the government.

Government employees also have been ordered to fly domestic carriers as much as possible when traveling abroad.

If domestic carriers do not provide a direct international service, officials should fly on a domestic carrier to a neighboring country and then transfer to a foreign carrier that can take them to the destination country, the rules state.

The corruption crackdown has helped to sink airline earnings, which also have been hit by this year by a weakening Chinese currency.

Air China had warned about an up to 65 percent fall of its first-half earnings. China Southern said it could post a big loss.

(Reuters) - Northwest England's Manchester airport is to operate direct flights to Hong Kong later this year and more services to China could follow, stepping up competition with London Heathrow, which is operating almost at full capacity.

Heathrow, Europe's busiest airport, is falling behind rival European hubs in the battle for lucrative routes to emerging markets because of the constraints on expansion.

Manchester Airport, in northern England, said on Thursday that Cathay Pacific would begin a four-times-a-week service to Hong Kong from December, the first time passengers in Britain will be able to travel directly to China on a scheduled service from outside London.

Manchester Airport Group's chief executive Charlie Cornish said talks with two other airlines, Air China and Hainan Airline, regarding opening more routes to China were underway.

"We're talking to them about a direct route from Manchester to Beijing. I'm hopeful that that will come through over the course of the next 12 months," he told Reuters.

Lawmakers and business leaders agree that Britain needs new runways to remain economically competitive but all plans are on hold while the government's special Airports Commission deliberates.

A recommendation about where a new runway should go will be made by the Airports Commission in the second half of next year, but building would not complete until the middle 2020s, giving other airports in Britain a chance to add new flights as air travel demand grows.

Heathrow, is operating at 98 percent of its potential compared with Manchester, Britain's third busiest airport, which is operating at 60 percent capacity, and Stansted, the country's fourth biggest airport and London's third, which is operating at 51 percent.

Manchester Airport and Stansted are owned by Manchester Airport Group which in turn is owned by an Australian pension fund and a group of regional councils around Manchester.

"We'll be starting to look at the opportunity to bring long-haul opportunities to Stansted as well," Cornish said, confirming that the group was in talks with long-haul carriers regarding options at Stansted, but declining to name them. (Reporting by Sarah Young; Editing by Greg Mahlich)

Rumour has it that a new route/s will be announced very shortly...
