When Did Cathay Retire The 747-200 And -300?

Wed Aug 30, 2006 5:09 pm

Hello, I need to know the year when Cathay Pacific retired the 747-200 and 747-300 from the passenger fleet.
The dates I have are 1999 for the 747-300 and 1998 for the 747-200, but I need this to be confirmed.

I have tried searching airline databases, but they seem to have delivery dates but not dates when they left the airline.

If anyone has this information, it would be greatly appreciated!  Smile

People. They make an airline.

Pakistan International took all the 743's in 2000. The 742's were retired in the late 1990's as Cathay bulked up the 744 fleet for sevice to the USA and Europe.
