U.S. Airlines Aren’t Complying With Beijing’s Demand They Call Taiwan Part of China


SHANGHAI—Most of the world’s airlines have bowed to Chinese demands to refer to Taiwan as part of China, but a handful of others—including the three main U.S. international carriers—have refused, in the thick of U.S. backlash against Beijing’s insistence on conformity with its views.

The U.S. airlines look to be taking their cue from Washington, with a bipartisan group of U.S. Senators urging the carriers to stand up to Chinese “bullying” and the White House branding China’s request “Orwellian nonsense.”
