Cathay Using Regional-config 330s On HKG-SYD?

Am flying HKG-SYD on Cathay and the aircraft is a "330" -- not a "333" or "33B". Am flying business -- does this mean the plane will have the regional seats in it. It is two-class and I think the B version has the new seats.

If CX is flying that regional model on the 9 hour Sydney route that is pathetic... that is mediocre business class for short haul, let alone long haul. I got a print-out from the customer service agent and all of the EQV services to SYD are 330s, like that is a way to hide the fact they are the commuter A-330s.

CX does a good job, but if the regional configuration is being used HKG-SYD that is very dissapointing.

I don't think so... Sydney always receive the long haul product of A333... they are even one of the first to receive the new product...!! i think its because they don't know whether it is a 333 or 33B..

when are you travelling..?? that will clarify more..!!

Tomorrow 9AM flight. Ticker shows 330 and 14A so can't be a 333, as there is no 14A on the 3-class. Hope it is new product but they only have 2 of the A-330s equiped with the new business class. The overnight to Sydney has one of them; not sure about the other one.

Would certainly think SYD would get the premium aircraft... but looks like a 330 from the print-out. Hope you are right and it is a EQV=330 of some type. BUT most of the other flights are all 33B or 333.

Sometimes due to aircraft rotation, some unlucky pax will get to sit the regional business class!
