This item was in the Marco Polo Club news sheet sent out recently:
"From 1 July 2002, passengers flying in and out of Auckland on Cathay Pacific will be able to enjoy the new First and Business class seats. This service operates on a daily basis."
Feasibility of CX achieving a 34C deployment daily to AKL? Changing SFO to 744 will free up some 34Cs, but their website lists only 4 34Cs at the moment.
I think CX are doing really well on this route in terms of premium passengers - business class is often more than 75% full and first class seems to be seeing a lot of traffic as well.
