I was awaiting this month’s CNN Business Traveller episode with much anticipation, in particular because Richard Quest was in Hong Kong filming a segment for the show and was staying at the same hotel as us. More on that later (and you were wondering why the title of my trip report is “Quest to Istanbul and Hong Kong”).
Anyway, instead of appreciating the show at-large for being awesome, I’m hung up on one minor detail which is driving me crazy. In the first segment of this month’s show (“Best of Hong Kong”), Richard is shown flying from London to Hong Kong. At 7:24 there’s a pretty clear cabin shot, but for the life of me I can’t figure out what airline he’s flying. Yeah, he’s wearing a British Airways First Class shirt, but it looks to me like he’s flying business. It doesn’t look like Air New Zealand, British Airways, Qantas, or Virgin Atlantic, though, and those are the only airlines that fly that route nonstop (as far as I know, at least). Take a look at 7:24 in the first segment and see if you can figure out what airline he’s flying. What’s confusing me just as much is what that thing is in front of him. Is it the door, or what?
