move to demonstrate that Cathay Pacific Airlines have the right management strategies that will see them improve by 7% with immediate effect. A low-cost carrier such as HK Express has fallout when the price of fueling goes up the 70 USD odd because of reducing profitability that is obtained when there is more expenditure on cost than from the customer revenues. Cathay Pacific moves beyond its borders with superior experience for its customers at every stage of their journey ( Liu & Atuahene ,20 18). Their new classic lounge in Shanghai Pudong terminal is another reason why customers arrive early and rest and recover in the inviting atmosphere of comfort and well-being before their flight. Cathay Pacific and HK Express differ in the length of their operation in that, HK Express offers domestic travel services and has simple haul operations. Cathay Pacific had experienced relatively fast long-haul growth, partly due to the reallocation of slots used for short-haul flights with an increase in ASK in Europe by 10% in 2018, when Brussels, Copenhagen, and Dublin were opened. ASK is expected to travel another 10% in Europe in 2019. ASK in America, unchanged last year, will increase by 11% in 2019. Cathay Pacific launches flights to Seattle at the end of March 2019 and late September 2018 the launch of Washington Dulles is also driving the ASK growth for 2019 (Zhou,2019).

Their booking system is presently an active airline (Code: OU, Hong Kong Airlines: HX) with its COA, but HK Airlines and HK Express are almost interchangeable, with few differences in brand and service.

MARKETING STRATEGIES 7 that both are independent and sufficiently profitable. Hong Kong Express management projects should be useful in two years. The companies also have differences in their Price strategies are much used by these two companies to outcompete each other. Cathay Pacific Airlines will necessarily have an automatic entry to the low-cost space when its approach to acquire the LCC HK Express and therefore outpower other market players ( Bamber, 2018) .HK Express entered the market by setting low prices on everything then maximized on the premium services which are offered. Cathay Pacific Airlines differ; however, from this airline, because their services are provided at a higher price, it was only that the service is offered exclusively ( Arthur,2019). The first- class facilities, which are provided by Cathay Pacific, which includes a serving of the latest wines, will attract more customers on this class and therefore increase their revenues by a considerable margin.HK Express only clings to the customers who are willing to spend low

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
