It seems I will go to Brisbane on Cathay Pacific (via LHR and HKG on B744 and A343), and therefore I have some important questions for (true) Cathay-experts.
How many B744s are already equipped with personal TVs in Economy (or better how many aren't equipped yet), and how many still fly around in old colours?
I've heard that those three A340-300s that have been bought from Air China were just repainted in CX colours and entered service, without any service upgrades (no personal TVs in Economy as all the other 11 A340 that CX bought directly from Airbus). Is that true? And if so, do those "poor A340s" fly the longhaul routes?
By the way, isn't LHR-HKG a prestige route, one of their most important? In that case I guess they fly highly equipped planes on that route only. Or is that a wrong guess?
Thanks for any answers!
