Swire flag in Russian Airspace

May the Swire flag fly proudly through Russian Airspace, after all CX is not a western airline right; it's more Chinese than Western correct?

Might be time to rub that flag off the tail Swire, you are a western company with western values aren't you? What a morally bankrupt organisation..

Well you might have missed recent comments by premier Xi Jinping about the reabsorption of Hong Kong being completed?

CX is a 100% Chinese airline owned and indebted so deeply to the PRC / CCP they can never recover.. Swires are the "group" puppets.

Still, paying overflight charges to a sanctioned country at war with a UN country leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. There must be very sweet tea being drunk on the sixth floor.

Choose a side...

Easy... Choose money. It's what everyone else does.

Absolutely disgusted they should even consider overflight. Knowing the price of everything versus cost of lives in Ukraine. Plenty of other ways to JFK with a stop enroute

I guess they just sent a few million Ruble out with Nord when it departed the other day.

CX841 on Nov 1 flew over Russia on the way back from JFK. It was around 2 to 2 and a half hours faster than not via Russia.
