The Hong Kong Tourism Board is about launch a $HK412 million global marketing drive to lure visitors back to Hong Kong after the SARS epidemic...see here </font>

Curiously, this coincides with the "Adelaide is OK" campaign running at www.triplej.abc.net.au

There are some good deals to be had in HK right now. The Airport Express train can be had for half price (HK$100 adult return, HK$50 child return), Kids ride free on Peak Hill Tram etc. On arrival into HK, each person is offered a visotor pack which includes many discount vouchers and offers - mostly two-for-one deals. They are trying hard to drum up business.

mikalee, whilst you'd think so, they generally keep these kind of events low key, but I'll bet if it was Sir Richard's they'd probably think it's worthwhile and sell a couple of extra seats

BA looks to pull services from Australia unless ACCC confirms it's price fixing arrangement with QF.

British Airways chief executive Rod Eddington is convinced Ansett would still be flying if Air New Zealand had not prevented Singapore Airlines from buying into the airline.

...but thankfully they didn't and it's not!!! (can you see my bias to QF here anywhere??)
