Question Start a forum for China-based airlines?

Might a new forum be useful, re China-based airlines (except for Cathay Pacific), along the lines of the current one for Russia-based airlines? I'm not lobbying hard for it, but am just wondering if there might be sufficient and growing interest, given the number of airlines there, what I suspect will be the increasing quality of some such airlines, the size of the country, its huge domestic market (including many Chinese and foreign English speakers), the many international travelers heading there for work and play (as well as Chinese going abroad), and the pretty good award availability on some Chinese airlines.

It's an interesting thought. Would someone who is intrigued by the idea take a look at the Other Asian, Australian, and South Pacific airline threads reside? A cursory look at current activity shows an active forum with airlines being discussed from
  • Hong Kong
  • Taiwan
  • People's Republic of China
  • and other parts of the region, such as Indonesia and Sri Lanka
I'd love to know how many threads are specific to People's Republic of China over some specified time, perhaps the last six months? Where would Hong Kong Airlines fit? I'd also be interested in seeing a list of airlines that are Chinese carriers.
