Can anyone tell me more about this operation? I believe that they operate 3 GE powered 747-200s. Where do they fly to and are they a profitable company?

They leased 3 ex-Varig Freighters from Cathay Pacific, and they are I think 75% owned by Cathay. I am not sure where it flies to, but a book says it flies to Europe/UK.

I believe their main route is HKG-DUB-MAN-Brussels-DUB-HKG.

I think they also have a route to Osaka. They might have one to the US as well, but I'm not sure. They might have dropped it, as there was some restructuring a few years back.

ALMOST right CX flyboy, but your codes may confuse people! DUB=Dublin (Ireland) you mean Dubai=DXB. You are however correct, The HKG-DXB-MAN-BRU-DXB-HKG roure is flown daily and is the main route. They definately do serve Japan, and I think it is Osaka. I think CX serve flights to the USA with their 747-400s - Air HK is part owned by Cathay.

Ah yes, pardon me. Of course Dubai is DXB. I should have known better.
However, Air Hong Kong do not operate 747-400s. They are part of the Cathay cargo fleet operated by Cathay crews. They fly to Chicago is the USA.

I never said Air HK have 747-400s!!!!
CX serve flights to the USA with their 747-400s. What I meant was, since the airlines are part of the same group, there is no need for them to fly on the same routes and CX's 744s are better suited to the longer routes to the USA.

See you later

Do we happen to know the aircraft utilization rate? That route is definately a long one. How long does it take an aircraft to get back to home (HKG)?
