Just came back from a quick jaunt down to Shanghai, and found to my delight that both of my CA flights were being operated by leased Dragonair A330s (B-HYG going down, B-HYH coming back). The aircraft came complete with Dragonair flight crew and senior cabin staff.
We know CA, KA, and CX are one large extended family, but does anyone out there have details on why CA is leasing these birds, and how long they'll have them for?
In China, everything is possible - but nothing is easy.
