Cathay Pacific New Business Class

Sun Mar 17, 2002 2:06 pm

This is for all those "in the know". Could anyone who has travelled on the new Cathay Pacific business class seats, or have inside knowledge, please tell me which aircraft (as in registration) the seats are fitted on? Also, I understand that CX aims to have a third of its long haul fleet equipped by April. Does anyone know:
a) If any A340 aircraft are included, will they also be equipped with the new First Class
b) Are any more A330s being converted to three class configuration?
c) What are the registrations of the aircraft that will be equipped with the new seats?

Any replies would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Also, does anyone know which 4 registrations are designated 74J (as in more business class seats) as shown on the Cathay fleet details?

Out of the 744s, B-HUF and B-HOV have the new Businesss seats. -HUF also has the new revamped Economy class as well. I am not sure about the A340s, a few of them have the new Betsy First Class already. As for the A330s, as far as I know, no more are being converted to a 3 class cabin.
