    I can understand the choice of Hong Kong, but it still seems overly provocative toward CX to base the new LCC in CX's home town and only hub. SIN might have been natural.

    CX can invest in this new LCC if they want. They can choose to be with them or against them. I don't see CX being protective of any of their partners anyway, they even try to steal FFs from their alliance members.

    But there are also rumors about JetStar Japan (with JAL investing too)...I guess the two can compliment each other in some ways
