Yesterday, Cathay Pacific announced that it would be rebranding its sister airline and subsidiary, Dragonair, as Cathay Dragon, in what is apparently a unit-wide rebranding campaign (Cathay itself also simplified and posh-ed up its logo and livery).
This is good news for our fantasy friend named Dragonair, the Dragon-type Pokémon that evolves from Dratini and into Dragonite – you know, the orange dragon once thought in the animé to be the world’s largest.
Never again will the name of Dragonair suffer the inconvenience of being confused between Pokémon and aviation enthusiasts. Though with its length and ability to fly, Dragonair could be like an airline itself. Or an aircraft.
Have a happy weekend!
