CX is buying a lot of planes now.

So I predict CX is going to restart service to mainland China soon (in addition to others)

Once HK Government relax the current rule (only 1 HK airline to each destination), CX certainly can kill KA, CA and MU on HKG-PEK, HKG-SHA etc.

I think there might be more to it than that; certainly CX is a better airline than CA and MU, but from what I have heard KA is very good. In any case, the competition may be counter-productive; KA flies to quite a few Chinese destinations, is now a known name and can feed traffic efficiently to CX's routes, particularly to TPE.

Also, don't forget that the Chinese government will have a say in this.

I think (and hope) it's far more likely for both airlines to stick with what they're good at. That said, I do see KA expanding its reach.

As to CX's expansion plans, the 346 order effectively gives the plot away; that's only the trickle that will lead to a flood. There'll be quite a few more where that came from and in time, I could see them replacing the A340-300s (I'm talking end of decade here).

By then of course, the A380 will certainly be in the fleet.

Cathay Pacific has just announced that it is going to further boost services into Malaysia by increasing flights to Penang and Kuala Lumpur. This comes only a few months after MAS and CX agreed to code-share on all their HKG-PEN and HKG-KUL services.  Smile
