Strange! There is quite a lot of rumours on CX lately, mostly involve mainland China and another country, the one I've heard in early Jul is YVR/SHA/HKG, of course I don't take it seriously for the time being, but in the future? no one knows

The only reason this rumor make sense is CX is trying to compete with Dragonair over TPE to HK to SHanghai route.
Millions of Taiwanese businessman hate to wait at the HK airport before taking off to cities in China. Dragonair, who is a new comer to this year Taiwan HK air-agreement, has a better edge. It now fly a A330 from TPE to HK (the plane sit for 30 mins and then take off to Shanghai). Draonair claim that cut 2 hours off the travel time. I think may be CX is trying to do the same thing with Philippines as the transit point. I am not sure but I just cannot believe what commercial value from Shanghai to Philippines has for CX.

CX has no traffic rights to fly from any Chinese city direct to another city in another country OTHER than HKG!

Recently, there were several Chinese news reports said that Cathay Pacific Airways is really looking forward to opening routes to some well-developed cities in mainland China, but no-one mentioned anything about Cathay Pacific Airways will be flying any new routes between mainland China and another country.

I think CX would make an excellent flag carrier for China.
Perhaps CX is only thinking ahead - having been on a number of CX flights of late and seeing the sheer numbers of Chinese pax who fly on them, I can imagine that CX management must surely be contemplating the unthinkable - that its future is in China too.

Airpearl, I personally think that Cathay Pacific Airways has no way to become flag carrier in China in the future we can see now, but it is and will still be the flag carrier for Hong Kong (SAR), I say this because the Chinese government will not let Air China shut down 'for ever'.

I just know that CX want to operate direct flight between Hong Kong and the mainland China. I haven't heard that CX want to operate direct flight between China and the Philippine. But there are somebody such as the ex-head of Civil Aviation Dept, Hong Kong find some unreasonable reason against CX flying to the mainland China. That stupid guy said that CX is not a Chinese Airline becuase it is controlled by British! Only he can think that of stupid reasons... But CX is registered and based in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a city of China. So CX must a Chinese Airline! CX is controlled by foreigners because laws and the history of Hong Kong....
I think it need to take a long time to see CX flgihts to the mainland......

In the realm of international air services, CX is a "Hong Kong" airline, not a "Chinese" airline. Hong Kong negotiates and signs its own air services agreements (ASA) with foreign countries; so, if Cathay is not a "Hong Kong" airline, it will be cut off from whatever traffic rights is available from those ASA's.

Cathay has flown into mainland China before, with scheduled services to Shanghai. It was only dropped when they took a majority stake in Dragonair and KA took over the routes. It is no secret that CX now wants to re-establish service into the mainland, and the "direct" service that is being rumored might just be some same-flight-number-via-HKG deal, if and when China service does resume.

There was an article on a newpaper 2 days ago saying that CX will negotiate in starting services to China, he expressed that it was only the matter of time.
