CX A340-600s To AKL

According to Cathay Pacific's schedules, the A340-600 is scheduled to operate CX107/26Jun and CX107/28Jun (and subsequently CX108/27Jun and CX108/29Jun) down to Auckland.

While I'm not complaining at the chance of even seeing the 340-600 at AKL (never mind flying it), I was wondering about the accuracy of this information. Anyone able to tell me if CX are likely to revert back to the traditional 340-300 before those dates and if they actually are planning to op the -600s down to NZ, why?

Thanks  Smile

Well I certainly hope that it comes!

When is the third aircraft to be delivered by the way?

ZK-NBT: No idea, but apparently the two that they have now are parked. Sydney has reverted back to 333 service for the time being. I was wondering if the A340-600 might have a problem finding a gate at AKL due to its length...

The third A340-600 for Cathay will be delivered by the end of this month.

I doubt very much that B-HQC will arrive this month, I think Aug/Sep is more likely.

The 346 should be able to park on gates 1, 2 and 5 atleast, I remember seeing the 773 on those gates before, there may be other gates aswell.

Well, I'll found out soon enough whether that news is for real, my friends are on the CX 108 flight for Jun 26.

Btw, is AKL the 3rd destination for the CX A340-600s to fly to? They flew to LHR, LAX. Is AKL the 3rd luckly airport, or did SYD got her before?

CX's A340-642s have been to a few Asian Destinations as well as LAX and SYD. In fact, SYD has been served by the A340-642 as CX101/100 since April until end of May and is planned to return service as CX101/100 from July onwards.

Best regards

The info is correct as at now. I have checked and CPA107 on 26th and 28th JUNE will be operated by the Airbus A340-642s.

They also flew to BKK and TPE that I am aware of.

June 26 CX108 AKL/HKG is scheduled as a 34C not a 346. I have a feeling that the 346's will be used to AKL regularly eventually, not sure why but......
