Singapore Airlines Group now bigger than Cathay Pacific in terms of passenger-km

On June 2017, Singapore Airlines Group (including Scoot and Silkair) has higher passenger-km than Cathay Pacific Group (including Dragon air) for the first time in history. SIA Group RPK stands at 10,699 millions compared to 10,487 millions of Cathay Pacific Group.

However, things are not rosy for Singapore Airlines. Her budget arm Scoot (including Tigerair) is a laggard compared to Malaysia's Airasia and Indonesia Lionair.

The premium Singapore Airlines now faces stiff competition from Airlines from China. Drawing from a large population pool, the Airlines from China have far more good looking girls, who are far more gentle their the westernized Singaporean ladies.
