Quoting gauravpai (Reply 4): However the topic is wether any airline uses their entire fleet to one destination under a single flight number like KU does ?
Yes CX does that all the time and it is restricted to regional flights only to selected ports only! For instance, CX739 (HKG-SIN) will turn around as CX734 (SIN-HKG) and it has used every single aircraft type in CX's fleet (A330, A343, A346, 744, 772, 773, 77W) and the aircraft type keeps changing every single day!

Quoting BreninTW (Reply 2): CX flies anything and everything into TPE. Over the years, I've flown the A333, A343, A346, 744, 772, 773, and 77W between TPE and HKG.
Additionally, CX's subsidiary Dragon Air (KA) flies its A320 and A333 between TPE and HKG as well.
I'm pretty sure both CI and BR also fly at least all their wide-body types between those two airports (CI may use the 738 as well, I don't know, but I rather doubt it).
CI has 737-800s on the route sometimes. BR's entire fleet comes to HKG including their MD90s and A321.
Its worth noting that many Asian destinations receive the entire CX passenger fleet. Places like BKK, CEB, NRT, SIN etc...most of the larger destinations in the network.
Quoting gauravpai (Reply 4): I have travelled on A300/A330-300 /772/773/77W/A345/A346/A380/747-400
TG does not regularly swap aircraft types on a certain flight though. The A300 has not been here for a long time for example and as far as I know, no TG 777-300ER has ever visited HKG although I stand to be corrected.

We were originally booked on TG600 and the 747-400 had some problems with the engines and was swapped for a brand new 777-300er that day so was lucky to get on that
when we entered it was like we were travelling in Jet Airways as the interiors looked familiar
it was later that i understood that TG had taken over some aircraft from 9W and hence the similarity.
so yes i have travelled into HKG on a 77W

Icelandair operates 753s to BOS, JFK and occasionally YYZ in N-America and in Europe it operates on a regular basis to LHR and CPH, sometimes to FRA, AMS and ARN, occasionally OSL and very rarely CDG and MAN. Obviously all those airports get 752s also, so those would qualify.
