They do have some new A321neo since they absorbed Hong Kong Express.

The 777-300ER has been the flagship before the pandemic and some have come off lease during the pandemic so that fleet is smaller today than in 2019. They have 21 777-9 on order if Boeing ever gets the plane certified... Cathay will be fine with A350's & 777-9 plus whatever replaces the A330 regional fleet.

I hope so. The 78J would be a great 773 replacement while A330neo as the A330 replacement.
No way the order both imo

Agree with this and the last three posts - CX is on life support, I question if HKG will be allowed to function as a hub without Beijings political influence/meddling. I’d suggest CX being part owned by Swire is a red flag to a bull for the Chinese and we’ll see CX gobbled up by Air China who already hold 28%. I wonder how long beforeCAAC bundles CXs orders into their mega orders…
