CX used the B773 when flying Istanbul - Hong Kong.
There's not a high demand for this route IMO, but great to see another airline flying into Hong Kong as this has been rumored for quite sometime (Along with Lauda and SAS, now TK is starting services to HKG).

Well they have a very nice new airport, but to say it's the best. No way.
But according to our voting, which still goes on till the end of november, the are well leading. Hmmm an article must have been published in Turkey about us. But they use the trip from IST-BKK-HGK. I have flown them a lot and they have a lot of pax in BKK. Normally it flies IST-BKK-SIN. Is this going to change and are they not going to fly to SIN anymore. The pax from SIN was only a few, so they might wanna try HGK.

I am assuming that Turkish will codeshare its flights to Hong Kong with CX and may be some other airlines.
Istanbul has always tried to be the hub for the east and the west and i think it deserves such reputation since it is the best airport in the region.
