Irony Irony Irony!

From Today’s Taipei Times:

“China Airlines Co , despite being the world’s deadliest carrier, is being rewarded by the government instead of reprimanded for its appalling safety record”

Ah, yes. And Chen has chosen CAL to fly him to Africa, instead of his usual EVA airlines.
Must be some really greasy palms out there.

I seem to remember there was a falling out between Chen and the owner of EVA Airlines not so long ago. At the time I believe it was thought to be over the negotiations for the HK-Taiwan route. It wasn’t mentioned in the Taipei Times article, but then again there is never any investigative reporting in Taiwan. That’s more dangerous than flying CAL.

Well it is a state-owned company and the govt needs the revenues. So I’m not surprised.
