    So, AA has me making a 45 min international. connection from CX to KA at HKG around noon tomorrow (Wednesday). Is that reasonable or a pipe dream that should concern me?

    KA is the wholly owner subsidiary of CX, I'd think (I've not flown CX to HKG) you would be close to CX. if AA ticketed you, then it could be deemed a legal transit connection.

    STANDARD.D/D...D/I...I/D...I/I.
    ONLINE .20 1.00 1.00 1.00

    D=Domestic
    I = International
    # = how much time (in Hours) the MCT is.

    I have no idea about the CX-KA II means; maybe specific to the CX-KA connection?

    Then perhaps this falls under the .50 hour "All-China"?

    CX-KA II means an exception to the standard applies when connecting from CX to KA on an international to international transfer (and in the specified circumstances based on flight numbers or origin and destination as applicable).

    Still makes 45 minutes an illegal connection. Anyway, how did you get on?

    Changed flights. :)
    Now I'm just intellectually curious.

    On the face of it you had an illegal connection. Whilst you might have made the onward flight, it would not have taken much to miss it (e.g. long transfer security queue).
