SFO-HKG-SFO Routing And ATC

Tue Sep 14, 2004 8:24 am

I'm traveling on CX, direct from SFO to HKG. What DP and STAR should I expect from SFO and HKG. Also, what type of routing will it be? Near Alaska and Tokyo?

Finally, what ATC facilities will be passed? Any information about transpac ops is appreciated. Thanks.

The CX SFO-HKG flight last night had the following routing.

KSFO./.ALCOA..BUTEN..BOSKE..3800N/14000W..3800N/15000W..3800N/16000W..
3800N/17000W..3800N/18000E..3900N/17000E..3700N/16000E..3600N/15000E..
SEALS.OTR13.VACKY.OTR14.ACQUA.OTR14.PETAL..MJE.A1.APU..MKG.A1.
ELATO..VHHH/2157

SFO directly westward until reaching Japan, and then southwest along Japan, Taiwan, and finally to HK.

When I flew SFO-HKG on United (similar route), according to Channel 9, we talked to Oakland Center, SF Radio or Tokyo on HF probably using datalink because there was nothing on Channel 9 for that part of the flight,Tokyo Control, Fukuoka Control, Naha Control, Taipei Control, Hong Kong radar.

./. Means part of the route was omitted, and I highly doubt they went direct across the Ocean, there are established tracks for the aircraft to follow in a non-radar environment.

Mike, the above route is fine. The departure is per the flexy track
notam issued.
I did not forget...I just misplaced the thought...

Mike, actually, this is just one of the possible routes... And flying over the Pacific is possible.. They also fly over Hawaii in some occasion... or sometimes over Anchorage...
