Cathay Pacific plans to increase frequencies in 2007, particularly a major increase to London, Paris, Frankfurt, New York, San Francisco.

It'll also launch the new cabin and seats from the 2ndhalf of 2007, which made its debut last year.

First 777-300ER will enter service in September

This comes from the New Year press conference held on Feb 27.

Have they given up on the MAN service that was supposed to start last year?

I thought LHR was jam packed? Or do they have slots if airlines pay enough?

For those of us that can't read the link(it's not in English) , does this add anything to the 14 Feb 07 release about this subject other than they are going to increase service when they get new aircraft? Do they talk about frequencies?

JFK - 3x daily?
LHR- 5x daily?
SFO- 2x daily?

It seems CX is not letting Oasis affect their expansion plans - at all.

It's interesting that they're adding service to existing markets without putting some of that extra capacity into Chicago.

Purely speculative and largely uninformed conjecture: Could this be a hint that AA will soon start ORD-HKG?

I heard about LHR getting an extra frequency a couple months ago on my CX flight from BKK to CMB from the ISM. I usually take cabin crew rumours with a grain of salt, but it looks like it's really happening. Simply incredible

LHR flights.

4 x daily CX (soon 5).
3 x daily BA
1 x daily VX
1 x daily QF
1 x daily NZ

LGW

1 x daily O8

CX is finally matching the increase in frequencies from AF and LH in their respective markets. I wonder if BA will make their HKG flights 4 daily in the near future?

The rumor of a second SFO flight has been rumored for ages. This would be a nice site and nice additional boost to SFO. Would this possibly be in response to UAL beefing up SFO-HKG?

I doubt it, AA doesn't have a lot of spare equipment and has a pilot's problem which hindered them from flying DFW-PEK, which is shorter by a couple of hours than ORD-HKG non-stop. Plus, they would face serious competition from UA who is already well-established on the route and in Asia.

I agree. AA chances on this route are slim and none. UA, flies this route 10x weekly. If I'm correct, it goes double daily later on this year.

There are (free) slots available from the allocating company but usually not at peak times. Further improvements in ATC also creates a small number of new slots every year. Whether CX has applied for or is planning to apply for such a slot or whether it is buying a slot pair in the 'second hand' market I do not know.

Wait, I thought they already have 2 daily flights to SFO? One during the day and the other around midnight?? Reason I say that is coz I've seen a CX 747 sitting at the gate around 10pm and another one arriving in the morning around noon.

Nope, just the one.

Thanx, that explains it. I didn't think they'd park the plane at SFO for that long.

The 773 with the plan at the moment will not fly to Europe for quite a few years from now.

The 2nd SFO was not a rumour...it was announced to the public, flight numbers and all, and then withdrawn when we were refused extra flights by the Indian government. The SFo flight would have been fed by Indian traffic so CX felt it was best to put the capacity elsewhere.

The plan at the moment is for the extra capacity afforded by the arrivals of the 77Ws wil beef up services to existing destinations first, and then expand to new destinations later. On their freighter side you may see some new destinations this year.

There is an extremely good chance....maybe at the very end of this year or early 08...the plan keeps changing.

Why would you want variety, when you can operate a suingle crew out there?


No one has mentioned the third daily MEL service.
Hasn't CX formally announced it yet??

OT - but wasn't that due to HKG refusing 5th freedom rights to other Indian carriers (already available to AI, but not to 9W)?

Maybe a chance that AMS will get the 744 back instead of the 343?

Would be nice... although there is not really demand for first class on the AMS-HKG route.

As far as I know, the two governments cannot agree to give each other equal and fair onwards 5th freedom rights...I bet CX would love BOM-LHR or something!!


25 Amirs : When will NY get another frequency? Nonstop? Maybe from EWR? Any chance it will happen by September?
26 8herveg : Virgin Atlantic's code is actually VS. But I thought they served HKG 2 x daily anyway? Isn't one to HKG, and one which flies onwards to SYD?
27 Cloudyapple : The Hong Kong terminator was cancelled before launch, prior to Oasis and ANZ starting their services.
