initial applications go straight to recruitment in FOP, not HR

I thought you were asking how long to go before the process of liquidation commences. Buyer beware.

The demise of HNA could well trigger the great chinese domino wall to start its fall ....

CSA wants another 250 aircraft by 2020. Why not purchase HNA or one of their subsidiaries? CES and Air China are also competing for dominance in the China region. If the house of cards starts to crumble, I'm sure someone will come in and clean it up.

The Chinese banking system is closed to international scrutiny. The domino theory is very valid since it is only the Chinese banks that are funding the Chinese airline expansions.

That’s a valid thought. But remember that the Party needs stability, so they’ll continue to use smoke and mirrors to prop up entrrprises. Gotta convince the proles.

The Trump trade tariffs are hitting China very hard, much more so than their tit-for-tat responses on the USA. The USA can buy and sell from anyone. China sells to the world if allowed to and buys from a very limited supply chain. Currency control imposed in China and Hong Kong to stop the flow of ill gained cash leaving their economy. There main raw materials supllier ( Australia ) on an earnings warning. If one Chinese bank falters the whole pack of cards could follow. If as Trump has hinted the next round of tariffs is on airframes from Boeing then the aviation game is over in China. Airbus can't fill the gap and would not be allowed too and the Chineses domestic airframe programme doesn't meet international standards. Worrying times for any mainland carrier.

I’m not sure what you mean. Tariffs are generally imposed on imports, not on goods American companies are selling to willing buyers. Kind of defeats the purpose to hurt businesses at home. Especially big ones like Boeing, who are unlikely to sit idly by while their order book is emptied. They most certainly have political capital to influence trade policy. See the C-Series as an example.

The US is as likely to “collapse” as China. If we’ve learned anything it’s that these events are almost entirely unpredictable and far worse than imagined.

Well the recruitment for 2018 has closed, due to Hainan Group having reassessment and review,at the way the group is going, including reduction in the fleet expansion. Expect maybe the recruitment might reopen early 2019.

All expansion is on hold. The issue is with the mothership and not HKA. Training center scheduled to open Q2 2019. Currently all available funds being sunk into the new building and A350s. A350s will continue to arrive albeit at a much slower rate. 4-5 new A330s parked in France awaiting delivery. These new birds are part of the 2016 order for 9 additional A333s. The 787s was a nice dream...officially dead..and for the better to be honest! Cancellation of Moscow, Gold Coast, Cairns and all cargo operations. Increased frequencies to Japan and China.

Looks bad from the outside but to be honest a little stability will be a welcome break. Growth has been lightning paced in the last 3 years. AKL, YVR, LAX and SFO. Time to gather stock, stabilise and be ready to go again second half next year.

The key point is growth is on temporary hold...things will fire up again soon with Toronto and New York planned to next year.
