Cathay Pacific YYZ-HKG Nonstop A340-600

Mon Feb 13, 2006 1:27 am

Cathay Pacific will start daily non-stop service YYZ-HKG using a A340-600 according to their Toronto Station Manager later this year. Does anyone have a firm date for this?? I was hoping we would see a 777 come in here in CX colours but i believe CX will be the first A346 to operate into YYZ!

CX are flying HKG-YYZ nonstop today, of course that is a JFK diversion. Smile

Will they have enough planes for this route? What will replace their daily 346 JFK-HKG non-stop? 773ER will be delivered so soon?

I very much doubt this is happening as they only have 3 A346s. However you can expect YYZ to be among the first few destinations to see the 77Ws, nonstop.

3 A340-600s are not enough as 2 are required for 1 long-haul destination and of course they are already operating HKG-JFK-HKG.

The first 77W will enter the Cathay fleet next September.

Will the 346's leave around the same time of the first 77W's?

Who are to get the 77W's first, LHR, CDG, YYZ, HKG, SYD?

Lufthansa's beautiful A340-600 graces us on occasion, and is scheduled daily during peak months.

Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!

So perhaps the 77Ws will replace the 346s to JFK and be moved to YYZ by the end of the year?

The 77W's don't arrive until September 2007 which his what Hkg82 meant. I have heard that the first batch of 77W's is for expansion, not sure if they will put the A346 on another route and the 77W to JFK though. Will CX use the 77W across the Pacific?

Well I'd like to think HKG since CX are/were based there last time I heard checked.

LH was the first to operate the A346 regularly into YYZ in the summer of 2004. They no longer bring it in but have upgauged to a B744 during the summer with the A343 during the winter season.

Cheers,
Kaz
