The 3rd daily flight doesn't exist! The 3rd flight which will operate 3 or 4 times a week (can't remember exactly) will be a daytime flight and will be flown with the A340-300, at least initially.
M88, 722, 732, 733, 734, 73G, 73H, 742, 743, 744, 752, 762, 763, 772, 773, 77W, 320, 332, 333, 345, 388, DH8, SF3 - want

Good news from Cathay. Do they have any plans to increase the frequency to daily of the additional 3rd daytime flight? Is there sufficient demand?

In the year 2000, i think it was around April i flew on cx and have to say i was surprised when i got to the gate and saw it was the a340. Was this usual at the time or was it an experiment by cx.
can I have an upgrade thanks..
