Great news!

Hey Legacy, they talking about finally adding that mid-day HKG flight?
You think SFO may end up like YVR with a thru flight?

Great that Cathay will move here. That makes two airlines weith their North American headquaters in SF: Cathay and Vietnam. We lost Qantas in 1993, when they moved their operations to Tucson, AZ. QF had a great building on Union Square that had the Qantas name and logo on top. Now its owned by Tiffany and Co.

You think SFO may end up like YVR with a thru flight?

With TWOV, ITI and progressive clearance all suspended the odds of this happening are somewhere between slim and none.

As739x:

I believe when CX does decide to add capacity at SFO, they will go for a afternoon departure as you mentioned. UA has the only afternoon departure from SFO to HKG. SQ 1 does not depart until after midnight.

I do not think CX will continue the flight onto other ports ie: ORD,DFW. CX is filling about eighty five percent of their flights. Out of that, only about ten percent are transit passengers. Most of the PAX are Bay Area bound. So, I would say CX will still rely on AA and other carriers to connect with their flight at SFO.
