Hi everyone!

Someone has told me that Cathay Pacific used to own a few DC 10s. Can anyone confirm that?

If yes, what is the model?

Hope to hear from you guy!

They probably confused them with the L1011's...Someone once told me that Canadian has L1011's, bu thtey were really talking about the DC10 and they worked there!

Cathay has never owned any DC10s. They were considering leasing some DC10s many many years ago, but chose the Tristar instead. They were offered a deal by the leasing company for the DC10s with engines free-of-charge. cathay nearly signed until they realised that the deal only applied to one aircraft.....so they bought Tristars, and I'm glad!!!

Cathay was just about to place orders for DC-10s when the British Government knew about it and persuaded CX to chose the Tristar with RR engines instead because Rolls Royce was facing Bankruptcy at that time. And so CX bought the Tristar.

A few years afterwards there had been a scandal that Lockheed paid one of Cathay's pilots US $80000 so that he would influence the Airline to buy the tristar.
