Cathy Pacific Will Start Flying To ANC Again!

Fri Mar 15, 2002 11:21 pm

It is nice to see things getting back to normal.

Cathy Pacific will start flying into Anchorage again. They had canceled their flights and rerouted through vancouver after Sep 11th.

This was due to some draconian screening rules that where imposed that required everyone on the aircraft to deplane and pass through customs even if the aircraft's final destination was not in the United States.

These ineffective and unneccessary rules where rolled back and starting Saturday Cathey will again make fuel stops in ANC.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

Flying back to ANC is actually a good thing. It will save some time since the route to ANC is less deviated from the great circle route. Also, flying back to ANC can solve the payload problem for the sector frm YVR to HKG.

for your info

What's the payload problem for YVR to HKG? Are the no. of pax. and luggage very restricted?
See my homepage for a comprehensive guide to spotting and photography at HKG

The wintertime headwinds for west-bound flights over the north Pacific can be atrocious. So much so that even the supposedly long-legged A340's can't take off with a full load going YVR-HKG

Thats Great! I flew in 97 on an A340 from YYZ-HKG via ANC (Though i was in ANC at like 2 AM so i didn't see much but i think a Polar Air Cargo 74 when we were landing, well also the inside of an empty terminal)

In addition, Pax load has to give its way to cargo since cargo can generate more revenue than Y-cls pax.
