Just wondering seeing as i can't find any information online what type of aircraft CX normally use on Flights 256, 253 (LHR-HKG-LHR).. I'm flying with them in Febuary and the CX website said 34C for the outbound flight.. i.e. A340-300 and EQV for the return flight.. I.e. Equipment varies... Call me a nerd but what type of aircraft may it be? 346, 343, 744, 77W??
Also the new economy product on CX doesn't look to be that nice... Like an office chair in the sky! Anyone know when these should be installed on different aircraft?

We usually operate the A340-300 and the spare A340-600 (thats not flying new york) on this flight.
Despite the new direct Toronto service utilising the A346's initially, I think they will still have the third A346 lying around operating the LHR route.
Can't really come to a conclusion, except you are definitely flying on an A340, as to which type is anyones guess at the moment, though it will definitely be with the the old Y/J/F classes.
