Perhaps upgrade some of the A343/333 routes or fly multiple frequencies where the 744 is done only one daily.
Assuming the 773ER is going to be three-cabin plane HKG to SYD/MEL are possbilities.
CX could look at flying four daily to LAX with two westbound daytime flights instead of the current one.
HKG-SFO from one daily to two daily with one of each daytime and night time westbound flights.
Upgrade the two westbound daytime HKG-LHR flights.
Just to name some possibilities.

With LAX having three daily flights, perhaps one of the three will be swapped with a 77W.
Has anyone heard if LAX will go all 77W? If so, maybe they will add an additional daylight flight as mentioned by Carpethead.
It would be great to see CX 773ERs (and CX passenger service in general) at ORD... but I still see AA launching the route, not CX. Remember, AA wants to grow their Asian presence at ORD beyond NRT, DEL, and PVG with their own fleet and not necessarily the birds of oneworld partners.

I wonder if Cathay will consider Houston IAH as a next destination? IAH has seen a bunch of growth from Asia recently...Pakistani, China Airlines, Emirates, and now looking to have a Korean Air Cargo operation.
Just food for thought!
Real pilots fly planes that take and measure oil in gallons
25 Jimyvr: They'd pretty much open DFW before IAH where DFW is oneWorld hub. DFW has been on CX's radar for a while
26 Centrair: Couldn't AA and CX do the route? UA currently uses a 747-400 AA would use a 777-200ER CX could use a 777-300ER
27 AirbusfanYYZ: Did I miss something, since when does EK serve IAH? Cheers, Kaz
28 FWAERJ: Of course, AA and CX could both do ORD-HKG if they so choose. However, as AA and CX are both oneworld partners with codesharing agreements, I think t
29 CX flyboy: No news about that I'm afraid. Not even hot rumours. it will be several years before Europe sees a CX 77W. Probably in the next decade. The 77Ws will
30 Kaitak744: Likely the desert. The CX A340-600s are the worst A340-600s around. (being the first off the line) Airbus built them with abnormally heavy wings, mak
31 CX flyboy: Rumours are that a new operator has already been found for all 3 aircraft.
32 Jacobin777: They could bring the 77W here to SFO......though I doubt it as their 744s are usually packed....having said that, it was nice to see a CX 744 on final
33 AlitaliaMD11: I read that the Fly3x2 (the new Air Luxor) was looking to lease a A340-600 for operations this summer. Perhaps they will be a taker?
34 CX flyboy: The 346s will not be available till year end 2007, so I doubt it.
