Topic: CX888 To Vancouver, Why Is It Delayed For 2 Weeks?

What I tend to find with this flight is that once it is delayed, it is delayed for a very long time from my last 3 years of spotting at YVR. Why is this? Is it because of the schedule that the CX B744 fly? Or is it because of ac shortages? Well, finally I saw the CX flight push out of the gate 30 minutes behind time, but the other day, I had to wait til 1 o'clock in the afternoon to see the aircraft fly in from Hong Kong. What I also find is that (Just my opinion) since CX has a lot of quick turn-around times, their planes are not in the cleanest condition. I was on CX888 to JFK about two months ago, I just touched my window blinds and pulled it down, looked at my fingers, and it was black........

At the same time, the other CX flight, CX838/839 has also been delayed for quite a while. Are they pushing their schedule a bit? I know they are doing really well currently, but........

Quoting Ktachiya (Thread starter):
Why Is It Delayed For 2 Weeks?

Ktachiya:

I assume you mean over a two-week period it's daily arrival/departure has been delayed, and not the flight was delayed for two weeks?? Not being sarcastic, just want to clarify.

I fly Cathy about once a month and have never felt their cabins were unclean... at the least less clean than anyone else's. In fact, I think their cabins are better cared for than many, many other carriers.

I assume there were other conditions than just the one window shade that were obviously dirty. Did you communicate with CX? You never know... they might give you a few FF miles for being inconvenienced! The continuation to JFK can be a short turn around, depending on arrival, so perhaps the cleaning crew didn't do a good enough job.

Safe travels....

Yup, you are right. So everyday for about 2 weeks, its been delayed.

Yes, well the flight attendant on the way there (Hong Kong based I think) was very nice. She made my flight very enjoyable.

Its the flight attendant on the way back (probably YVR based because the whole cabin crew spoke very good English, that gave me attitude).

But C888 was very comfy. Its 889 that was a little..............
