BA Cabin Crew Strike – Consolidated ThreadBack to Forum
Same scenario but perhaps more feasible
The Pied Piper leads them into extinction
BA in receivership
BA Unite/BASSA staff jobless and unwanted
Old Pension Fund down the drain
Assets of BA purchased from the receiver by a consortium of John Swire & Sons Ltd/Cathay Pacific Airways/ Air China
BA assets rolled into a new HK domiciled company ‘Cathay British Airways’
CBA based in UK runs with modified BA livery thus retains pax support
CBA purchases controlling interest in CX/CA and becomes worlds the largest airline
Renamed Cathay World Airways Group
Retains all existing brands
Purchases Qantas…..and so on………. !
Just for fun – its a holiday in HK.4 Feb 2011
“CBA purchases controlling interest in CX/CA and becomes worlds the largest airline
no foreign entity buys a Chinese Government owned company like China Airlines
just the opposite
The Chinese Govt is the world’s largest lender outstripping the World Bank.
The deal is : they fund it, you must use chinese companies to do the work, chinese materials made in the Mainland etc.
Volvo bought by China, Hummer , Stealth aircraft etc.
Get the drift ?4 Feb 2011
Just to be clear:
BA has not sought an injunction to block the current strike mandate. Yesterday’s short court hearing was not about the last strike ballot. BA has reportedly written to the ERS and Unite setting out concerns about the legality of the ballot, but nothing more.
A recovery plan for the pension fund has been agreed with the unions (BASSA was not involved!), the Trustees and the pensions regulator.
Alasdair – Cheap shot.4 Feb 2011
Not exactly Mickey…….
…..you are a little confused with your Chinese airlines.
China Airlines are Taiwan based carrier and not owned by China. Code = CI
Air China code is CA is part owned by Chinese government in which CX also has a shareholding.
Cathay Pacific also HK company and 29.99% owned by CA
Back to the scenario
CBA would not foreign as would be a HK company (in case you are a little out of date HK has been part of China for a few years now).
Perhaps CA is also the largest shareholder in CBA .
By the way the Hummer deal did not go ahead.4 Feb 2011
