Now for the bad news!! According to the flight schedule, it'll arrive and depart both DFW and ATL after dark.

CX090 HKG-DFW 1815/2055 (T, Th, Sa)
CX090 DFW-ATL 2255/0145+1 (T, Th, Sa)
CX091 ATL-HKG 0345/1315+2 (W, F, Su)

Not sure how our fellow spotters in both cities would like that.

All North American CX freighter services stop in ANC, which aside from the home port and TPE, is the busiest port in our network.


Funilly enough, on our company website, a day before the headline appeared announcing this new service, the headline read "New service to Dallas and Houston" ! This was quickly changed to the correct headline.....but makes me wonder!

Good for DFW about CX cargo services.

C'mon guys, the passenger services are a pipe dream.
