Well, Skytrax's annual airport surveys are flawed to begin with, so perhaps we should look at this ranking with skepticism.

Passengers refuse to board airliner in protest at compensation for delayed flight
9 February 2011
South China Morning Post

Eighty-six mainland visitors refused to board a plane at Chek Lap Kok airport after their flight was delayed for almost five hours.

Some of the passengers, protesting against a HK$100 compensation offer, said ground staff argued with them. A Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express spokeswoman denied this.

The flight had been scheduled to take off at 7.05pm, but was delayed to 8.50pm and then 11.40pm. Passengers demanded compensation of HK$800 and called police to settle the dispute.

One who refused to board said the attitude of the ground staff was poor.

"Who doesn't want to return home immediately? All of us thought we were mistreated as their attitudes were very poor," she said. "One of the airline staff quarrelled with us. We demanded a clear explanation about the delay but he refused, and said he would call the police. They did not even respect us."

The spokeswoman said the delay was caused by difficulties arranging flights during the Lunar New Year holiday. She said the airline had offered passengers the VIP lounge and to pay all transport costs after their return to Beijing. But most of them insisted on staying in the restricted area.

Of the 86 who refused to board, 63 took flights on other airlines.

Boeing inks deals to sell five 747-8 jets to Air China, 38 to Hong Kong Airlines
8 March 2011

HONG KONG (AP) - Boeing says it has signed a deal to sell five of its new 747-8 Intercontinental passenger jets to Air China.

Chicago-based Boeing and Air China, the country's flag carrier, didn't say how much the deal was worth. At list prices it would be about $1.6 billion but airlines typically get big discounts.

Air China will use the planes to expand its international routes. The jets can carry 467 passengers and feature a new wing design and upgraded flight deck.

The order was announced Tuesday at the start of an air show in Hong Kong. It still needs Chinese government approval.

Boeing also announced a preliminary agreement to sell 38 airplanes to HNA Group's Hong Kong Airlines, including 30 787-9s, six 777 freighters, and two 787-8 VIP jets.

Looks like HX is going more international in the next few years.

Bloomberg
Hong Kong Air Woos Private-Equity Funds, Cathay Passengers

March 14, 2011, 2:00 AM EDT

By Fion Li
(Adds China travel growth in third paragraph.)

March 14 (Bloomberg) -- Hong Kong Airlines Ltd. expects to win private-equity investment by early next quarter as it prepares for an initial public offering of as much as $1 billion and challenges neighbor Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd.

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. is working on arranging a stake sale to private-equity investors, who will become the second- largest group of shareholders behind the investment arm of China’s Hainan province government, President Yang Jiang Hong said in an interview at the carrier’s Hong Kong headquarters on March 10. He didn’t give details on the talks.

The airline last week agreed to order 38 Boeing Co. widebody planes to tap demand in Hong Kong and China, the world’s fastest-growing air-travel market. The carrier, with less than 10 percent of Hong Kong’s outbound travel, needs to boost services to lure lucrative corporate flyers from Cathay, said Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc analyst Andrew Orchard.

“If they want to survive, they have to be aggressive,” Orchard said. “Hong Kong is dominated by Cathay.” Orchard, who is based in the city, said he had only flown on Hong Kong Air once or twice.

To help pay for expansion, Hong Kong Air plans to hold an IPO next year, where it may raise from $500 million to $1 billion, Yang said. The carrier may also take full control of affiliate Hong Kong Express ahead of the share sale, he said.

Profit Forecast

Hong Kong Air made a net income of about HK$110 million ($14 million) in 2010, its first annual profit, and it may double that this year, Yang said. Passenger numbers will likely rise to 4 million from more than 2 million, he said.

The airline also expects its cargo unit, which started last year, to account for 30 percent of revenue this year from 20 percent, as it adds more freighter flights, he said.

Cathay, with a group fleet of about 170 planes, flew 26.8 million passengers in 2010. It boosted profit to HK$14 billion from HK$4.7 billion a year earlier, helped by rising travel and asset sales. The airline ordered 25 Boeing and Airbus SAS planes last week.

Hong Kong Air and Hong Kong Express operate a total 18 Airbus A330-200s and Boeing 737-800s planes, including freighters. Hong Kong Air agreed to order 32 Boeing 787s last week, including two for VIP operations, and six 777 freighters. The airline also has 30 A320s and 27 twin-aisle planes on order at Airbus, according to the planemaker’s website.

China Network

The two carriers fly to nine cites in China, as well as to Moscow and Asian destinations, according to their website. Taipei flights will begin as early as next month, and a second daily service to Singapore is due to begin on June 28. Long-haul routes including Paris, London, Vancouver and U.S. cities will be added over the next two years, Yang said.

Hong Kong Air plans to add an all-business class service to London next year after opening an executive lounge at its hub in 2010, Yang said. The carrier is also trying to lure premium passengers by charging as much as 20 percent less than Cathay and by tapping ties with Hainan province’s HNA Group, Yang said. HNA, which owns 45 percent of Hong Kong Air, also controls Hainan Airlines Co. and Beijing-based Grand China Air, as well as investing in airports, hotels and retail.

“Compared with Cathay, we know the China market better,” Yang said. “We are in a stronger position to capture the growth.”

China’s international air travel may grow 11 percent a year through 2014, almost double the global pace, according to the International Air Transport Association.

Cathay Upgrades

Cathay is spending HK$1 billion rolling out new business- class cabins and it’s also renovating lounges, incoming Chief Executive Officer John Slosar said last week. The carrier is used to competition from its experience battling international carriers in its home market, he said.

“We compete everywhere, everyday,” he said. “Like any business you need to give people a reason to buy your product and we really try to keep focused on that.”

Cheaper fares may also do little to help win corporate travelers as employers generally pay for trips, said RBS’s Orchard. Cathay passengers may also be reluctant to give up the chance to earn frequent-flyer points by using a different carrier, the analyst said.

“I can’t see why people would want to lose the mileage,” he said. “Cathay has a very good frequent-flyer program.”

Oasis Hong Kong Airlines Ltd., which challenged Cathay with low-cost flights to London and Vancouver, collapsed after less than two years of operations in 2008.

Hiring Plans

Hong Kong Air plans to hire 300 staff this year, including 200 cabin crew and 50 pilots, Yang said. The carrier received more than 2,000 applications from pilots last year, so it isn’t concerned about meeting its hiring targets, he said.

The airline also intends to begin hedging as much as 33 percent of its fuel usage after recently acquiring a trading company, Yang said. The carrier had planned to start hedging, which helps guard against jumps in fuel prices, even before crude rose above $100 barrel because of political unrest in the Middle East, he said. Oil prices will likely decline from this level, he said.

“The high crude prices are only temporary,” he said. “It’s just because of political reason -- not supply and demand factors -- and it won’t weigh on our profits.”

Hainan Air parent expects sales to rise about 50 pct this yr

BOAO, China, April 15 (Reuters) - HNA Group, the parent of Hainan Air expects its sales to rise about 50 percent from a year earlier to as much as 150 billion yuan ($23 billion) in 2011, rising further to 500 billion yuan by 2015, its chairman, Chen Feng, said on Friday.

HNA group underwent a restructuring to pave way for an overseas listing of some assets.

Hong Kong Airlines, a HNA subsidiary is "quite successful" with its ongoing private placement and may seek a public listing in the future. He declined to elaborate.

He made the remarks in an interview at the Boao business forum on the southern Chinese island of Hainan.

Local media have said Hong Kong Airlines aimed to raise HK$500 million to HK$1 billion via an IPO in Hong Kong next year.

Hong Kong Airlines signed a memorandum of understanding in March for 32 Boeing Dreamliners and six 777 freighter jets.


Hainan Air is backed by billionaire investor George Soros.

($1 = 6.531 yuan)

Basically saying is providing Wing Chun, a kind of Chinese Kung Fu, to its flight attendants to protect themselves in case of violence occur inflight.

乘客不規矩 港空服員功夫伺候
(法新社)2011年4月18日 星期一 01:05
(法新社香港17日電) 香港1家航空公司要求全體空服員學習中國功夫,協助他們應付酒醉和不守規矩的乘客。

星期日南華 早報報導,香港航空公司表示,已經邀請所有公司職員接受詠春拳訓練,但只有空服員才是強制接受這項訓練。詠春拳是中國功夫中的近距離搏鬥拳術。

該公司企業傳播副總經理說,我們每週大約有3起乘客不守規矩的事件發生。

1名空服員兩週前在北京 飛往香港的班機上,必須將她所受的武術訓練實際運用。

副總經理告訴星期日南華早報:「當時,其中1名乘客感到身體不適,但也有可能是他喝醉了。這名空服員得照顧這名體型壯碩的乘客,這時她才了解到健身是有幫助的。」

她說:「一般來說,1名空姐無法應付1名壯漢,特別是他喝醉的時候,不過,空姐經過訓練,便可輕鬆應付這種情況。」(譯者:中央社王富民)
