I was wondering what the current situation is with Cathay Pacific? I know that they are currently parking aircraft for a while, but are their any new orders on the horizon? What are the plans for the 777, A330 and A340. A380 and Sonic Cruiser? Also, what is going on with their 747-400 fleet? There was talk of something "Special" being done to one of the Jumbos that is heading off to Xiamen.

Not sure what the current fleet situation is but the B744 LHR/HKG routes seem to be busy after travelling standby on them recently. The service was also really good and staff very friendly and helpfull. They are planning to keep the 742F's for a while as far as I'm aware as I know a f.o that operates on them and has been fairly busy.

The rumours were that winglets were to be fitted. Our COO said that "something special" was in store for that. Rumours are now that it will be returned. I hardly consider that special at all!!! It was also said that it would go to XMN for storage, but now someone says AVV. Basically, no-one knows!!
