Cathay Pacific CEO resigns as a result of Hong Kong protests
It's been all about Hong Kong this week, whether the closing of the airport by protesters, or the re-opening, or the resignation of the top two at Cathay Pacific. I wrote a couple of posts - links are below.
What happened last week?
As well as Hong Kong, I also wrote my first food post for the blog. You will note that a new 'Food' item has appeared on the primary menu. This is still a Travel blog, but I thought I should add in a food area, since my love of food rates right next to my love of travel. I won't be doing food or restaurant reviews, but more explanations of the experience. Anyway, let's see how it develops.
There were also developments on the Qantas Sunrise Project front, with Boeing effectively bowing out of the race with the announcement of a delay in the development of the 777X project. I'm very pessimistic about Boeing's future. I think the fall in quarterly returns recently announced is just a drop in the ocean, and to mix a metaphor, just the beginning of the end for Boeing!
Oh, and Marriott Bonvoy has announced demand driven hotel points redemptions starting in September.
What's coming up?
Expect some more flight reviews from the Honeymoon Trip to South America, as well as a Buenos Aires hotel review. I'm hoping to catch up on some other short trips like Sydney - Auckland and some interstate trips.
I have a trip to Adelaide travelling in Virgin Australia Business Class coming up at the end of this month, and a short international hop at the beginning of September. All will be revealed soon!
Catch up on last weeks posts below. Until next week . . .
