Delta celebrates milestone launch of Seattle-Hong Kong service
Seattle travelers now have direct access to nine overseas international destinations from airline's hub

SEATTLE, June 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) today launched nonstop service from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to Hong Kong. The new market is Delta's latest addition in the buildup of its Seattle hub and its fifth new international destination from Seattle in the last year.
Delta Air Lines and the Delta Connection carriers offer service to nearly 370 destinations on six continents. For more information visit news.delta.com.

Delta customers and employees will commemorate the event today along with representatives from the Port of Seattle, Visit Seattle, the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, and the Hong Kong Association of Washington with a gate event prior to the departure of the first flight. The event will include a ceremonial ribbon cutting and water cannon salute.

With the launch of Hong Kong service, Delta customers now have nonstop access to nine long-haul international destinations from Seattle – more than all other airlines combined – including the top five destinations in Asia and three of the top four destinations in Europe. Delta is the only carrier to offer nonstop service from Seattle to Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Paris, Shanghai and Tokyo-Haneda. Delta is also the only carrier to offer full flat-bed seats with direct aisle access in BusinessElite on every long-haul international flight from Seattle along with Economy Comfort seating and entertainment on demand in every seat throughout the aircraft.

"With the addition of the Hong Kong flight, Delta now offers our customers more than 2,500 daily seats to the top business markets in Asia and Europe from our Seattle hub," said Mike Medeiros, Delta's vice president - Seattle. "As we continue growing in the community, we remain committed to consistently providing the award-winning experience that we're known for both in the U.S. and around the globe."

Delta has also significantly expanded its operation in Seattle over the last year to support its international service and offer customers in the previously underserved market more choices. In total, Delta has increased its peak-day departures by more than 30 percent since a year ago and by December will offer 95 peak-day departures to 33 destinations, making it Seattle's fastest-growing airline.

In February, Delta launched a double miles promotion for Seattle-based SkyMiles members. Customers who book and fly Delta or Delta Connection-marketed and -operated flights from Seattle by Dec. 31, 2014, will be awarded double miles and double Medallion Qualification Miles on the nonstop segment departing from or arriving into Seattle. Registration is required.

Delta currently operates 76 peak-day departures to 25 destinations from Seattle, and every flight offers BusinessElite/First Class and Economy Comfort seating as well as Wi-Fi service on all domestic aircraft. Delta also introduced international Wi-Fi on its Boeing 747-400 fleet earlier this year and will complete installation of Wi-Fi service on its entire long-haul international fleet by the end of 2015. The airline has also invested $15 million in its facilities at Sea-Tac, including its Delta Sky Club and recently completed lobby renovations, Sky Priority services, new gate area power recharging stations, expanded ticket counters and enhancements to the international arrivals area.

Delta Air Lines serves nearly 165 million customers each year. This year, Delta was named the 2014 Airline of the Year by Air Transport World magazine and was named to FORTUNE magazine's 50 Most Admired Companies, in addition to being named the most admired airline for the third time in four years. With an industry-leading global network, Delta and the Delta Connection carriers offer service to 333 destinations in 64 countries on six continents. Headquartered in Atlanta, Delta employs nearly 80,000 employees worldwide and operates a mainline fleet of more than 700 aircraft. The airline is a founding member of the SkyTeam global alliance and participates in the industry's leading trans-Atlantic joint venture with Air France-KLM and Alitalia as well as a newly formed joint venture with Virgin Atlantic. Including its worldwide alliance partners, Delta offers customers more than 15,000 daily flights, with key hubs and markets including Amsterdam, Atlanta, Boston, Detroit, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York-JFK, New York-LaGuardia, Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Salt Lake City, Seattle and Tokyo-Narita.

Any news on the aircraft? I'm guessing a 777-200ER or LR?

edit: Never mind, A330-200 w/234 seats.

Will there be any policy change in the airport with respect to cancelled flights with pax onboard after the HX 18hr standoff fiasco?

The delay had nothing to do with HK airport. The issue is with China's military closing off air space and ATC there have to live with insufficient civilian corridors. If ATC in Shanghai cannot clear the flight in, the plane gets stuck on the tarmac in HK.

Hong Kong Airport dividend payout of HK$5.3 billion raises eyebrows
26 June 2014
South China Morning Post

Questions have arisen over the Airport Authority's dividend policy after it paid a record HK$5.3 billion to its sole shareholder, the Hong Kong government.

The generous dividend comes as the airport operator struggles to formulate a financing plan for a multibillion-dollar runway expansion that it has been advocating.

Compared with last year's payout, the sum represents a rise of 20.5 per cent - a higher rate than the 14 per cent net profit growth to HK$6.4 billion the authority reported yesterday.

With the latest dividend, the government has pocketed about HK$29 billion since 2003, the year it started recouping its capital injection of HK$36.6 billion into the authority that put Chek Lap Kok airport into operation in 1998.

Stanley Hui Hon-chung, the authority's outgoing chief executive, sidestepped questions on whether the payout should be lowered in order to strengthen the operator's finances.

"It is a decision of the authority's board," Hui said, referring to the 17-member governing organ on which the highest-ranking government official is Secretary for Transport and Housing Professor Anthony Cheung Bing-leung.

The authority said the financing plan for the third airport runway would not be ready before the end of the year.

But the project is expected to cost more than the HK$130 billion estimated in 2011, and may become the city's most expensive infrastructure project ever.

Even before construction began, more than HK$600 million has been spent in the past two years on consultancies and environmental impact studies for the project.

Joe Ng Cho-hin, vice-chairman of the Board of Airline Representatives, asked if the authority should continue with such a big dividend in the face of huge infrastructure investment ahead.

"We are concerned if the authority, as a government-owned entity, should earn as much as that," Ng said. He questioned the necessity of the big dividend payout, saying such lavish disbursement would "indirectly increase the burden on the airlines and passengers".

Hui was non-committal over whether to raise fees, saying only that the share of airport charges - mainly in airlines' payments for parking, landing and terminal building - in the authority's revenue stream would be steady.

The authority attributed its strong performance to 6.1 per cent growth in passengers to 60 million and a 6.3 per cent increase in aircraft movements to more than 370,000 last year.

Revenue from retail concessions and advertising registered 23 per cent growth year on year to HK$6.1 billion, and remained the largest single source of income.

Stage 1 of T3 will be completed in 2015 while stage 2 estimated completion date is 2020.

Why the long interval between the completion of stage one and two?

Fears of rising costs with runway delay
27 June 2014
The Standard

Airport Authority chief executive Stanley Hui Hon-chung says it is too soon to say if a third runway at Chek Lap Kok will cost up to HK$200 billion.

The estimate was HK$136.2 billion in a masterplan in 2011.

Hui now says the authority will complete an assessment of the cost of a third runway by the end of the year.

``As the construction of the third runway is a large-scale project, any minor change will have an impact on the cost,'' he said on a radio program yesterday.

But judging by views of the engineering sector, he added, ``it will not be a surprise if the overall cost will soar if the project is delayed further.''

The authority wants to start on a new runway in 2016, with completion in 2023. If it goes beyond 2023, an outlay of another HK$9 billion a year is seen.

On the same program, authority environment projects general manager Peter Lee tried to dismiss concerns of conservation groups that reclamation for the runway would seriously affect the habitat of the Chinese white dolphin.

Dolphins are intelligent enough not to stay in work areas, Lee argued. That was seen when building the airport in the 1990s, but the dolphins returned.

The authority sees a marine park of 2,400 hectares in 2023, but critics say the overall plan amounts to damaging habitat and then trying to conserve it.

An environmental study can be seen on the Environmental Protection Department's website until July 19.

Apparently, those routes are popular enough to warrant their existence, but it is more economical to use a smaller jet to run the connecting service.

They run a few 737 services out of HK, such as Ho Chi Minh and Guam as well. Doesn't make sense to send a widebody from the US to continue to these places with so many seats that may go unfilled.

Is the aircraft on the US registry or Hong Kong?

They are United aircraft so they are not locally-registered. Registration is tied to the airline's country of residence.
