*After the North Korean leader took an Air China plane to Singapore to attend a summit with the U.S. president, the companies share price spiked on the Hong Kong and Shanghai bourses

*Kim Jong Un's private jet is an aging Soviet model, and any minor malfunction could ground the plane as spare parts are now scarce
