One can imagine what Cathay Pacific officials would say about their company’s participation in this activity. Perhaps they would tell us that it is only business, and moving dolphins from Japan to China is legal. Let us remember Cathay Pacific’s role in this. Let us also be informed. U.S. based American Airlines just entered into a codesharing arrangement with Cathay Pacific. British Airways and Qantas Airlines are also in that elite group. Perhaps those who care about the plight of dolphins should remember this when they make business decisions about which airline to patronize.
From oneworld’s website: In addition to its own affiliate Dragonair, Cathay Pacific codeshares with oneworld partners American Airlines, British Airways, and affiliates Comair, Finnair, Japan Airlines, LAN, Mexicana, and Qantas.
Beyond oneworld, it has bilateral relationships with Air Pacific, Air China, Malaysia Airlines, Philippine Airlines, Vietnam Airlines, WestJet, and with the French rail operator SNCF.
