Carrier Also Likely to Replace Some Boeing 787 Orders in Favor of Airbus Jets
Hong Kong Airlines (HX) is considering cancelling its order for 10 Airbus A380 Superjumbo airliners according to AFP due to its continued protests of the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme tax (EU ETS).
“There are no firm decisions at this point. It will depend on how the business and the external environment evolves in the future,” a spokesperson told AFP.
Hong Kong Airlines has been hit hard by the Euro debt crisis, and also announced the suspension of business-class-only flights between London Gatwick and Hong Kong starting in September after about six months of operation.
