And by the way, what's the seating configuration like for the B747?
Airlines don't typically announce how they redeploy their aircraft. LAX is already being served by the 777-300.

Air China has not released its 747-8 seat map on its website, but the below news article has one : http://www.ausbt.com.au/photos-air-c...s-seats-cabins

It's interesting that F seats are located in the middle cabin instead of towards the front nor at the upper deck... and those are numbered Rows 1-3 while the J class have higher row numbers but are placed at the front of the plane. Maybe Air China has set that up so that F class passengers will have a most ample space for their passengers to relax on the wide side of the aircraft rather than fighting their way on the front portion of the aircraft...

As you might notice, I've consolidated past threads related to Chinese carriers to this unified thread here for a good reason: it will allow us to look back at how the Chinese aviation industry has matured over time, and you will get to see how it has moved forward to where it is today. I know it is a combination of at least 4 older threads, but, yes, I want to really make it as one unified thread as possible.

Direct flights to link Beijing and two Canadian cities
Excerpt

BEIJING, Nov. 9 (Xinhua) -- China and Canada will work to launch direct flights between Beijing and the Canadian cities of Montreal and Calgary, Xinhua learned on Sunday.

The effort is part of an aviation transportation agreement between the two nations, which was signed by head of China's Civil Aviation Administration Li Jiaxiang and Canadian International Trade Minister Ed Fast during an official visit to China by Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Non-stop flights, once in service, will save passengers between Beijing and the Canadian cities three to five hours.

Air China to launch direct Chengdu-Colombo service
Excerpt

BEIJING, Dec. 3 (Xinhua) -- Air China, one of the country's leading carriers, is scheduled to start direct service between Chengdu, the capital city of southwest China's Sichuan Province, and the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo in February, the airline said Wednesday in a statement.

An Airbus A330 will fly the Chengdu-Colombo route each Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. A one-way journey between Chengdu and Colombo will take about five-and-a-half hours, Air China said.

Passenger flow between southwest China and Sri Lanka has grown quickly in recent years amid increasing trade and economic activity. China is now the third-largest trade partner for Sri Lanka, which opened a consulate in Chengdu in late 2009.

Meanwhile, more Chinese tourists are visiting the island country, known as the pearl of the Indian Ocean.

According to statistics from the Sri Lanka Tourism Board, the country had received a total of 106,800 Chinese tourists in the first ten months of this year, up 139 percent year on year.

Why Lower Oil Prices Are Great For Chinese Airlines -- Barron's Blog
9 December 2014
Excerpt
CY Copyright © 2014, Dow Jones & Company, Inc.

We all know lower oil prices benefit airlines, but across Asia Pacific, Chinese airlines benefit the most, because they do not hedge against rising oil prices.

Citi Research estimates that fuel cost constitutes 36% of Air China's (0753.HK/ AIRYY) total costs. As a result, $1 drop in the price of Brent crude can boost Air China's earnings by 1.1% next year. By the same token, China Southern Airlines (1055.HK/ ZNH) has 36% of its total cost in fuel; China Eastern Airlines (0670.HK/ CEA), 34%.

By comparison, Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific ( 0293.HK) hedges 50% of its fuel cost. While hedging is good business practice and smooths out the airline's earnings, Cathay can't benefit much from the rapidly declining oil prices. It may also have to write off the fuel price hedges. Analysts Vivian Tao and Michael Beer wrote:

The future "out-of-the-money" hedges would result in large mark-to-market losses, which would flow through the company's reserves at year end (but will have no P&L impact). Further, the company is also likely to incur a large one-time charge in 2H14 for "hedge ineffectiveness" as jet fuel crack spreads have widened versus their historical average (US$20/bbl currently), limiting the effectiveness of Brent hedges.

Citi also sees more upside for the Chinese airlines as mainland Chinese travel more overseas:

International traffic should grow faster, by 15--16%, thanks to booming outbound tourism and stabilized inbound visitation as a result of the recovery of developed economies. The US recently loosened visa requirements for Chinese visitors. The UK, Japan and South Korea also promised to relax the visa application process. We expect more countries to follow this trend in the near future, which should significantly boost international traffic.

Citi raised its price targets for all the Chinese airlines, but Air China is its favorite, with a new price target of 8.72 Hong Kong dollars, based on 1.5 times 2015 book. Citi expects Air China to be the largest beneficiary from booming international traffic.

Citi upgraded China Southern Airlines to Buy with a new price target of HK$4.86, on 1 time 2015 book. The bank re-iterated its Buy rating for China Eastern Airlines, with a new price target of HK$4.7.

Not surprisingly, Chinese airlines jumped this morning as Brent crude fell towards $66 per barrel. China Southern Airlines gained 3.3%, Air China rose 2.2%, and China Eastern Airlines was up 1.1%. But these price targets still represent substantial upside, with Air China potentially rising by 45%.

China jails captain for deadly plane crash
Excerpt

BEIJING, Dec 19 (Reuters) - A Chinese court has jailed for three years the captain of a plane that crashed four years ago killing 44 people after finding him guilty of negligence, state media reported on Friday.

Qi Quanjun, in charge of the fatal Henan Airlines flight, was charged with failing to observe safety rules for landing and leaving the aircraft after the crash, ignoring passengers trapped in the wreckage, the official People's Daily said on its website.

The ERJ-190 regional jet, built by Brazil's Embraer , was attempting to land at Yichun in the remote northeast of China with 91 passengers and five crew on board.

But it overshot the runway and burst into flames, in the nation's worst air disaster since 2004.

China approves three new foreign courier firms -Xinhua
Excerpt

BEIJING, Jan 1 (Reuters) - China has permitted three new overseas courier firms to offer domestic delivery services, state news agency Xinhua said on Thursday, as part of government pledges to further open up the fast-growing market.

The State Post Bureau has approved Yamato (China) Transport Co Ltd, the China unit of Yamato Holdings Co Ltd, OCS Overseas Courier Service (Shanghai) Co Ltd and Kerry Logistics Co Ltd, Xinhua said.

The government said in September it would ease restrictions on foreign couriers seeking to deliver packages nationwide.

Express parcel delivery is booming in China, thanks to a surge in e-commerce. The Chinese market, however, is highly fragmented and competition is stiff.

China's aviation reforms and a rush of airline start-ups boost growth prospects; and fleets recycle

Quote:
China's aviation market is slowing. In aviation, China's double-digit growth days may be gone, but Boeing is buoyed by recent developments and has raised its 2013 projection for new aircraft by 7.8%. Underpinning the growth outlook are policy reforms that have ushered in new airlines, including low-cost carriers, which historically grow fast. They also grow traffic. No less than 19 airlines in China have recently launched or plan to.

In its growth trajectory, China is expected to receive 301 new aircraft every year for 20 years, or an average of one every 29 hours. In 2013, the main three airline groups – Air China, China Eastern and China Southern – collectively took about 200 aircraft. They expect finally to moderate growth in 2015, when a new five-year plan starts across the country.

Start-ups will quickly grow from small bases and Beijing must progressively find a balance between their ambitions and the protectionism sought by incumbents.

China is to receive one new aircraft every 29 hours for next 20 years

At a time when China is reputedly slowing growth, Boeing in Sep-2014 raised its forecast for the market. (Airbus provides a general Asia-Pacific and not China-specific forecast.) In 2013 Boeing projected China would need 5,580 aircraft over the next 20 years, a 6% increase in growth compared to its 2012 forecast. In 2014, this was bumped up to 7.8% growth, or 6,020 new aircraft. That equates to one new aircraft every 29 hours for the next 20 years.

While the story about China is growth, there is also significant replacement occurring. Net of replacements and retirements, China is forecast to end 2033 with 6,930 aircraft, 7.4% more than the 6,450 Boeing expected China would have at the end of 2032.
