Cathay Pacific is adding an extra flight to Colombo increasing from three weekly flights to four weekly flights. This is due to begin on 4 August 2002. Arr. and Dep. time are the same as the other flights. This extra flight will be operated by the B777-300s with the enlarged 323 seats Economy class cabin.
Good to see growth in Cathay Pacific.

Sorry, just checked the site myself, they're re-configuring the entire 773 fleet to 59J/323Y - 382 total.

777-200 and 777-300s. We fly both of them as they are very very similar in operation....and yes, right seat.

Yes, I meant that  Smile.

I thought you were on the 330/340's. I know you were on the 744's. Getting the hang of fly-by-wire?

Fly by wire or not, I can't say that there is much noticeable difference really, as there is good feedback built into the 777 handling. The FBW gives us a few extra features which are good, like bank angle protection, and overspeed/stall protection, although this technology I imagine would be possible on conventional aircraft as well.

Always great to see CX expanding, however something they don't do nearly of is opening up more routes. They're conservative in that regard. However that isn't their strategy, which is concentration & focusing on their product & on their most profitable routes.

Great to see CX expand services into Colombo. Maybe a few more airlines will take Cathay's approach and also serve Colombo.  Smile

Does this mean UL will get rights to increase their frequency to HKG to four. I know that currently there is a fourth UL frequency terminated in BKK, unlike their other three frequencies that operate CMB-BKK-HKG. Anybody have an idea of the load factors on these routes for both CX and UL?

Also whether CX has a convenient connection to MEL from/to CMB flight?
