becomes a regular scheduled service well that would make it the world's longest passenger flights on this flights the 2 passengers that the well to business they will have one but so no one had to experience being stuck in the middle of an economy row for almost 20 hours nevertheless the airline quantas carried out experiments on but the passengers and the crew measuring the levels of metal total and for example to see whether they were getting sleepy in flight seeing whether different food at different stages in the flight kept people awake when they wanted them to be awake help them sleep when they want them to sleep the passengers that i spoke to said it was a very comfortable flight for them with 50 passengers on board only and the ability to walk around the whole of the plane it wasn't exactly representative of what a real flight would be once the allan wants to get they service up and running by about 20202023 but that is subject to a few things not least regulatory approval for a flight of this length they've also got to do a new deal with their pilots pilots who are skeptical about working on such a long flight and they need. on the go see it with the union to get that through
and then of course the economics of the world have to stock up primarily though this is probably be a flight to business people travelling between sydney and new york need to get their boss because in the great scheme of things saving 3 hours 3 and a half hours perhaps on the current service is top 3 los angeles or houston at the moment well they'll be a premium in terms of price attached to that and not everybody will want to pay. geoffrey thomas is the editor in chief of airline ratings dot com he says people would happily pay a premium for a direct flight to the point of how popular the series the perth to london service which is nonstop of course as we know the large sector of the corpus is achieving on that slide is 92 percent and in premium class is 94 percent so it's extremely popular and people are there's enough people buying a bit more of a premium and people in a company premium economy also it's the best way to go they really like it because there are people who just want to go nonstop and there are people who want to stop
so you know this is enough market there for buzz cuts of services the certainly more and more nonstop so writing up the boeing 787 which is just the perfect sauce which qatar airways has about 60 yards it's a perfect size airplane to these norms these new nonstop routes and since it was introduced into service they 787 has opened up almost 'd 200 new routes that were never served before so the economics of the airplane and the fact that extend these nonstop flights is really ticking boxes and it's now one of one of the most demanding bike races in the world after a grueling stages and 650 kilometers the crocodile my mountain bike race has wrapped up in australia they caught up with one of the riders to learn more about this brutal experience. my name is not to be so that i'm a race a cork about trophy i grew up in austria but cycling was always just

competitors it's usually a facepalm for you know i had jake then drink and drink and drink and drink to the point wait gets tedious. lamination is my light truck but then go to bed early try to get 78 hours of sleep and get up again and 66 o'clock in the morning and do it over again. and we shall carry until hobbes at the top stories on al jazeera for ministers and lebanon's collection government are set to resign adding to the turmoil on the streets ahead of the lebanese christian forces parties and their a guest says he did not believe the current government could push through economic reforms and there's a celebrated by thousands of protesters who want the entire government to quit. the u.k. is asked the e.u. for a 3 month extension to bracks that parliament forced prime minister boris johnson

a 7 word tweet daryl morey general manager of the houston rockets n.b.a. team voiced his support for hong kong protesters now chinese companies have been suspending sponsorship deals and t.v. coverage from n.b.a. games player and. we can no longer watch rocky smashers so i think a lot of rockets fans will be very sad but of course this matter involves a state level issues so we can't allow this to happen but the u.s. national basketball association has had a presence in china for more than 30 years it's estimated about 300000000 people in china regularly played basketball a few months ago the chinese company 10 cent spend over one and a half $1000000000.00 securing the rights to continue streaming n.b.a. games in china for the next 5 years and that's good news for about $500000000.00 chinese basketball fans who regularly watch those matches in 2018 it's estimated
that the n.b.a. is market in china was worth $4000000000.00. china sensitivity about the hong kong protests hasn't just affected the n.b.a. a video game or was banned by gaming company activision blizzard for apparently supporting the hong kong demonstrations blizzard has insisted its decision was based on gaming rules and not on its china connections a chief economist at swiss bank has u.b.s. said in a podcast that an outbreak of swine flu in china would only matter to chinese pigs parts of china's financial sector called the comments distasteful and racist other companies including gap clothing marriott hotels and the daimler car group have been forced to apologize to china i think defend their your mindset. in the western country you said 3 dumb of speach. in china we also have freedom of speech. but some areas. shouldn't types but
deeply. bottom line china seems to be saying that for those who rely on its money there are some lines which cannot be crossed joining us now via skype from manchester in the u.k. simon chadwick simon is a professor of sports enterprise at seoul for business school in manchester good to have you with us simon how do you see all of this playing out i mean the n.b.a. is a pretty big deal in china not only in terms of sport but in terms of jobs. i was actually really surprised by this incident because the n.b.a. for the best for the 2 decades now has not only invested a lot of money but has also invested a lot of time into their activities in china and this is really helped to not only boost the n.b.a. in china itself but also to bust basketball more generally and so what you'll typically find is as many young chinese people are either active participants in
basketball or else watch basketball so i think we have some major incident but i do expect it to to die down in the medium to long term i think in the short to medium term they're going to be some turbulence and certainly this week compared to last week it's been a rather quieter. people really and the n.b.a. and china really are so intertwined with one another i think there will be a way for what ultimately for all concerned what does it mean for businesses away from sports who want to tap into this 14 trillion dollar economy i mean you'd have to take some pretty extraordinary measures to restrict the freedom of expression of your employees would you. well it's very interesting because over the last 10 days we have seen some businesses some sponsors commercial partners broadcasters really stepping back from from china from the n.b.a. from the coverage of games that have taken place in china involving n.b.a.
teams during that period so i think what it does show and we've seen this in other industrial sectors is that sport will now have to confront the reality of if it wishes to do business in china there is a certain way of saying and doing things and i guess is always this is not unusual because if you are operating in cats or if you're operating in great britain the same is true there are local norms local ways of doing things but i think ideologically in china politically it is so highly charged that essentially what we are beginning to see is is is really this clash of ideologies whereby principles of a western principles of free speech and open speech are being moderated or even curbed by the political necessities of operating in china and as i say it's the n.b.a. this time but i think moving forwards from here will find lots of other organizations in supporting football in most sports and other areas facing similar issues of what it read you a quote which perhaps sums up what what you were saying it's from been hung from
a saloon theory he says that companies need to make a choice he says do you want to preserve your authenticity and your brand or do you want to preserve your earnings guidance and share price choose one he says you can't have both. if you're going to do business in china i have to concur with that as somebody who is a regular visitor to china it is very clear that there are certain norms of behavior that you have to comply with. but those norms of behavior very firmly embedded within our in a very strongly political context and it's very clear in in china if you want to operate in china as a business as an organization if you want to succeed if you want to build a fun base if you want to secure financial return make a profit then there are the rules of the game and you have to comply with those rules and if you don't what you will do what you'll find is you slip into the
situation that the n.b.a. now finds itself in and so i do agree with the courts i think it's very very difficult to find a middle way there is only one way in china and you either accept it or you don't but coming back to the n.b.a. sports has always been thrust into geo political tensions in formula one in bahrain. and the joshua about to fight in saudi arabia why are our sports men and women managers expected to keep storm one we hear from diplomats who and many business leaders who manage to get away with with with with you know seeing things that aren't palatable to the countries in which the boonies. well the 1st thing i think i would say is is we're not in in new territory for those of us who are old enough to remember the cold war. and some of us will remember further by the night if you go back to for instance the 936
olympics when at all hitler was in power in germany sport and politics despite their often an easy relationship of have always had to co-exist to a greater or lesser extent so we're seeing this playing out again in china with the n.b.a. so i think that that's an important contextual detail to to to to to to mention but i think for individual athletes obviously these people are incredibly high profile and there are people who are constantly in the public spotlights they are not only representatives of themselves of their own brands they are also representatives of their sports but i think to a certain extent to the these these athletes and teams are also representatives of the team of the countries from which they're there from where they where they're located and historically i think there's been this view that football just plays football in a box just boxes but increasing or we know all this is what they say how they behave is scrutinized to such a large extent that you are no longer just
a racing driver you know you're no longer just a football effect of your you are as if you're communicating at a message a set of values a strategic position and so increasingly what we're now finding is that there is training for awfully it's this training for people working for teams because there woods potentially could be so highly charged these can cause the kinds of problems that we see with the n.b.a. and again this is why i find what has happened with the n.b.a. over the last 1010 days actually really surprising because historically and typically the n.b.a. is always very measured and very careful in the way that it communicates with the world some of this but really gets to into your own culture because professor many thanks indeed. thank you. now here's something that hasn't been widely reported but it has consequences for all of us the cost of shipping crude around the world has shot up to 11 year highs after the united states blacklisted chinese ships more than 40 v.l.
cc's or very large crude carriers operated by china's cosco shipping energy transportation have been blacklisted for moving sanctioned iranian oil cosco has a total of $1100.00 ships iran's oil tankers estimated to be around 54 of also been sanctions in total nearly $300.00 tankers have been black with listed including venezuela's that represents about 3 percent of the world's oil tanker fleet according to refer it if i come that set the cost of hiring a ship from $18000.00 to almost $300000.00 a day to ship crude from the u.s. gulf to asia the longest routes to ship oil now costs around $14000000.00 will add to that sanction countries a still managing to get crude to customers by offloading at sea and switching off tracking devices who better to pick all this up with than rajat kapoor managing director of oil and gas at a.w.i.
lloyd thanks for being with us roger so what needs to happen to bring tanker prices down should we be concerned here who's shouldering the cost. obviously a big effect on the tanker prices and the way it is and where they are today has got to do with the current sanctions that the u.s. administration has put on iranian crude in order to prevent offloading often include in the high seas in order to stop at least do it to the bare minimum export of group to china the u.s. as you know last month inboard to sanctions on the tanker subsidiaries of costco which is a china shipping line and in the largest shipping line in the world so once you have the sanctions coming in from the u.s. on these entities on these particular bang.
