Hi everyone. We have just had a discussion about whether or not Singapore Airlines will go for more B 747-400s. Or even the B 747-400LR. Which I strongly believe that they will.
Let us now talk about Cathay Pacific.
For quite a number of years, Cathay Pacific has not purchased the B 747-400s for Passengers Mode. How come?
I think it is time for them to go for more B 747-400s as this would be better for them for future fleet expansions to Europe or to the United States.
I think they should even go for the B 747-400LR. Why? That would allow them to open up routes like HKG-JFK, or HKG-EWR to compete with United Airlines as well as Continental. Also, more passengers can be carried on flights from Hong Kong to Toronto, without the need to stop over at Anchorage, Alaska with an A 340-400.
What do you guys think?
Will Cathay Pacific go for more B 747-400s? Or even the B 747-400LR?
