Cathay Pacific A350 routes

Where does CX deploy their Airbus A350s?

I know that LGW, Australia regularly get the A359 but where does CX send their A35K? All I know of is MAN but I am guessing that will change soon to the A359. I also know that CX also send their A35K on regional Asia routes and SFO gets 1 A359 out of their 3 daily HKG-SFO flights.

Will there be any chance of CX switching one of their 5x daily B77W to the A35K? If I'm not mistaken, CX257/CX256 is the only flight with no F.

The problem with questions like this is that it can change frequently. Looking at this month (January 2020) I see the A350 on at least some days and some frequencies to the following:

359: AKL, BCN, BKK, BNE, BRU, CEB, CGK, CHC, CPT, EWR, FCO, IAD, ICN, KIX, LGW, MEL, MNL, NGO, NRT, PER, SEA, SFO, SGN, SIN, SYD, TLV, TPE
35K: AKL, AMS, BKK, KIX, MAD, MAN, MEL, MNL, NGO, NRT, PER, SFO, SIN, TPE, YYZ, ZRH

Some of these are limited frequencies and one-off swaps.

Thanks for the list. Surprised Zurich is on the 35K, figured that's a route they can sell F.

A lot of routes vary seasonally, AKL gets 1 daily 359 in NS and 2 daily 35K in NW DEC-FEB peak, they are replacing the NZ frequency for a few months with 359s and 77Ws operating an a third AKL flight JAN-March. CHC gets a NW seasonal 359.

Australia gets 359/35K/333/77W mix, I think all ports get A350s though on atleast some services, SYD may not?

LHR I would think might stay all 77W given yields and loads would be among the highest in the network, I’ve no idea though, maybe the A350 will appear on flights they don’t offer F

350's go to all Aussie destinations save for ADL which is still 333's. SYD has been getting 350's on CX111.

Thank you! That's very informative. I didn't realise IAD was downgraded to the A359. I'm also surprised to see that EWR gets the A359 when it was previously a B77W route.

That's informative thank you! There were sources on the internet with CX deploying their A350s to LHR soon. And I would have thought they would replace one of their B77Ws to the A35Ks to routes with no F and I think that's usually CX256/CX257 as their 3 class B77Ws has almost the same seat count as their A35Ks
