Hong Kong Airlines to start flying to LAX


Possibly one of the last things Cathay Pacific needs right now is more competition, but Hainan Airlines Group owned Hong Kong Airlines – which gets its first A359’s this year, intends on launching services to LAX on December 15th. At present only American Airlines and Cathay Pacific operate direct flights. The new A359’s will seat 33 business class and 301 economy, and expect to be at least 30% cheaper than either of the Oneworld pair.
