Sorry for the confusion, if you look up I was responding to a comment that “CX is refurbishing all 77W with new Y cabin”

Of the 50+ 77Ws, less than 20 are owned. All of the 772/773 frames are owned. 5 772s are being disposed of being replaced by 5 773 purchased from a lessor. They are not owned by the airline you mentioned.


Alright thanks for the clarification.

The confusion (for me) comes in when we look at the latest edition of 'The Journey' (May - June 2018) which specifically states all 65 777-300ER's and 777-300's will be retrofitted with the new seats by the end of 2019.

There will be more 777-300s in the fleet by that time, and fewer 77Ws. I haven’t read the article you mentioned I am going more by what I am familiar with in terms of A330/777 transfers/returns and A350 deliveries.

fake cabins, fake planes....

"Definitely not true"


As far as I am aware CX owns less than 20 777s, a number of them are going to be returned to lessors as A350s and then 77Xs come into the fleet. As far as I am aware there is no plan to do a multi million dollar upgrade on all leased frames and then return them to the lessor.

So my comment was in response to your statement where you said all are to be reconfigured, which is not my understanding.

You will note in the annual report that a number of 777s leases are to expire.


only 5 77W are being returned....

the rest are getting new Y cabins and new tech for passengers

When are we going to see an A350 or 777 on HKG-DFW to complement the successful DFW-HKG AA flight?
