I just read the newest news letter from justplane.com, and it reported that Cathy Pacific is receiving the first of 13 A346 from the leasor. I belive that they really had 3, or have they sign for 13?!?!

Well I think we all know that they will get more then 3 but thats never been confirmed. The current order DOES stand at 3.

I sent an email to the Justplanes people. It makes me curious often where they get any such information.

Anyone who believes half the crap that justplanes.com posts deserves the mockery of people who know better.

In general, nobody deserves the mockery of anyone for any reason.

A transcript of my conversation with Justplanes:

>Hi... Can you mention where you heard Cathay ordered an additional 10
>A340-600s?
>
>The only announcements to date include 3 aircraft.
>
>Thanks
>

Hello Neil,
The news guy is gone so I cannot check it but it looks like it is
supposed to be 3 and not 13 so I will go ahead and change that... if
I can get into that section.
Thanks for the correction.
Rgds,
Mike

Whats wrong with justplanes ?, they priovide a good F R E E service and make the best aviation videos there are.

Just because their news is slower then the news on here it does not make them crap.

Hkgspotter1,

I read justplanes often too, but a lot of their news isn't just slow - its frequently inaccurate.

I haven't seen any of their videos, but this isn't the first time I've heard they're quite good.

I knew they were probably wrong, but there is a chance that they know something that we don't.

We could only hope.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I certainly hope Cathay ups to 13 A340-600s. Wonder how long it will take them to get that many.

How many A340s a month does Airbus produce?

The figure 13 refers to the number of A340-500/600s being acquired by ILFC.

Cathay is leasing the first three of ILFC's 13 aircraft (eight -600s and five -500s).

I'm sure that is where the confusion has arisen.

They should stick to delivering a product that they are GOOD at (the videos) and refrain from diluting their brand by sub-standard news that makes them the laughing stock of the industry. Last week it was the new National Airlines service to PBI, this week it is the 13 A340-600s for Cathay. Almost as good as The Onion.  Smile
