Cathay has at the moment 12 Airbus A330-343 with Trent772-60 engines. Seven more A333 will be delivered in the year 2001. Hope that helps.

Question: what planes does CX primarily use on their HKG-NRT route? 777-300's and 747's?

On the HKG-NRT, CX use the 747 400 and 777 200/300.
The 747 400 is in a three class configuration whereas the 777 200 are two class ( business and economy)

Does Cathay have any plans to fly to Honolulu. Also, why has the airline invested so heavily in Airbus planes?
