Cathay Pacific Airways is expected to announce job cuts, cost reductions and to shift flights to its short-haul arm when it unveils the results of a key review this week, as it grapples with growing competition from Chinese carriers.

The rapid growth of Chinese rivals such as China Eastern Airlines and China Southern Airlines has put pressure on ticket prices at a time when Cathay's costs have risen because of the strength of the Hong Kong dollar against the Chinese yuan.

How will Cathy Pacific compete with other Airlines who get state subsidy support and Cathy does not ?
Under such a business environment when Cathy pulls back or cut routes subsidy sponsored airline's will snap up the routes and expand leaving Cathy Pacific at a great disadvantage.

More over with stock rating sell on Cathy Pacific they will bleed money not raise funds and it could spell the end of Cathy Pacific as the airline industry customers have known them to be , who can compete with one arm tied behind their back while the competition gets subsidy business gifts free at no cost?
Sincerely,
SG 22

As Yahoo showed us last week, it's getting difficult to find a good name for a corporation or product.

The news this week that Yahoo! Inc. will be rechristened "Altaba Inc." elicited a lot of groans. "Apparently Yahoo renamed itself after an antihistamine," tweeted New York Times tech reporter Mike Isaac. The name "sounded more like infantile babble than the remnants of a once-promising internet giant," wrote Fortune's Lucinda Shen.
The English language is a finite resource.

Maybe they should shut down brick and mortar retail stores and only sell product from online sites.

Asia’s top economy imported 1.024 billion tons [of iron ore] in 2016, up 7.5 percent from a year earlier, according to customs data issued on Friday: that’s about 32 tons a second, according to Bloomberg calculations.

Iron ore [prices] surged more than 80 percent last year as China added stimulus to sustain economic growth, bolstering steel production, soaking up rising low-cost mine supply and shredding bears’ forecasts.
