Cathay fly a number of DHL services using their regular passenger fleet during the night with no, or very small passenger loads around Asia. As far as I know, only the Airbus and 777 fleet are used, and certainly not the 747.

PAL flies a 737 into HKG almost every night on a similar type of agreement with DHL. No pax are carried. It is quite possible that the PAL 742s are being used for this purpose as well. It is probably these which DHL is advertising. I doubt that they could justify a 747 just for their own services.
