No need to flogg the dead horse. The point being it makes no difference what you bring to the table if you're not welcome at the table.

What a great shame HKG was my home then for over 30 years. Kids born, bred and educated there. They’ve even been taught not to use Y’all. And I don’t look down on locals. Far from it.

disagree. JAL/ ANA excellent. CAAC airline safety record over the last ten years is better than FAA airlines. The last mainland airline crash was what, 2002?

I kindly ask you to refer to your own comment about your so called "expats don't f up" whilst locals do.

The world doesn't revolve around you man.
