Personally I do not think that CX will ever consider the narrow body jets. Why? very simple. Hong Kong has two passenger airlines : Cathay Pacific and Dragonair.
While Cathay Pacific is an all wide body airline operating long haul flights, Dragonair has a narrow body fleet and concentrates on the short and medium haul flights, mainly to the mainland China. I guess there is no place for CX in this market. They can take a chance and try to compete with Dragonair , but what for? They have enough troubles to care about.
What CX should do next (my opinion) is to acquire more aircraft in order to open routes to the new long awaited destinations that would generate lots of revenue.

Is that REAL that KA will compete with CX on the HKG-TPE route? I didn't even have heard of that!!! Where you get this news?
That would be interesting to see CX and KA competing on the same route as they have been operating on different route for many years already!
