Yet, this actually got me thinking about a few things. The route before was flown by an A343, then an A346 (every other day). However, now the CX838/839 was downgraded to an A343 and they never seem to bring in their A346.
What happened to this bird? Are they used on other sectors? Is it not economically viable for CX? Or is this for other reasons? Also, how many of CX's A343 are ex-SQ? Do these birds have a different configuration than some of the CX ordered birds or have they all been modified to provide the same service?
Also, does CX still have that 1x weekly Cargo service? Was it LAX-YVR-HKG or something like that?
And some people have posted on other threads, and told me that CX was considering a 3x daily service between YVR-HKG in the summer months. Is this true? Or are they planning to return their CX828 HKG-ANC-YYZ tech-stop back to YVR?
