I refer to CNA’s “Tiger Airways continues recovery with higher Q3 net profit”. CNA has tried to pull a fast one on unsuspecting readers. Maybe its readers are not as intelligent as it has assumed? Tiger Airways is a failure … Continue reading

20160119 When a subsidy is not a subsidy, a grant not a grant
