    Hong Kong Airlines has threatened to cancel an aircraft order with Airbus due to growing tensions between China and the European Union over the bloc's emissions trading scheme, a local newspaper reported on Thursday.

    "We cannot do something which is against our country's interests," the newspaper quoted airline President Yang Jianhong as saying.

    Are they a public company? If so don't they have to act in the interest of their shareholders first? They could always opt to not fly to Europe if ETS makes that non-profitable.
