CX's HKG-LHR To Go 3 B 744s+ 1 A 343 Per Day?

Tue Mar 14, 2006 2:22 pm

From what I heard CX had plans to put 3 B 747-400s and 1 A 340-300s on the HKG-LHR route. But when? So far it's double daily B 747-400 and double daily A 340-300. Maybe when they have more B 747-400s? I know they are still taking delivery of a few second hand B 747-400s.

HKG-LHR is getting a bit crazy these days. Wonder if CX will go 5 times daily between HKG and LHR

Any news regarding LHR-JFK?

Tell me about it!
BA = 3 daily B744
CX = 4 daily 2 A343/2 B744
VS = 1 daily (this is likely to increase due to HKG-SYD) A346
QF = 1 daily B744

Amazing frequency to HKG from LHR!

According to their latest press release at: http://www.cathaypacific.com/intl/ab...utcx/press/0,,31342-136709,00.html

CX will be increasing frequencies to FRA and CDG from daily to 10 weekly this northern summer. Doesn't look like they will be adding more flights to LHR at this stage.

Both CX and BA should really get A380 for this sector (assuming they don't need A380 for other routes, unlikely as JNB can use couple of them too) since they have some sort of alliance, a joint order and shared maintenance would work out very well.

My brother flew BA from HKG-LHR, got bumped, and got seat in the last min before dept (this was Sept BTW, I can't imagine Xmas booking), there's still market for additional flights/capacity. At current capacity BA will need 4 A380, CX will need 6 to replace current fleet .

A346 is only used for New York Nonstops, and sometimes australia/asia for crew familiarity/training and utilisation, but primarily only for NYC.

Is HKG-LHR going triple daily B 747-400 for CX?

Without a deal with the Indian government on more flights there, the 2nd SFO flight will be postponed.

Sorry I should have explained. There are a lot of Indians living in SFO, and the passengers that would support a second flight would be the Indian passengers connecting from the Indian flights which Cathay would love to have..but do not. Without these connecting passengers, a new SFO flight cannot be justified at the moment.
