Cathay Pacific denies Facebook rumour of engine shutdown
South China Morning Post
Tuesday, 05 March, 2013, 4:50am

Cathay Pacific has denied that one of its planes experienced an engine shutdown while flying from Japan to Taiwan.

The rumour was posted on Facebook by a user claiming to be one of the 14 cabin crew members on board the Boeing 777-200 carrying 322 passengers.

The post described how the plane suddenly fell silent as the cabin lights went off. The ovens on flight CX 511 from Fukuoka to Taipei also stopped working for 15 seconds on Sunday, when the plane was 11,582 metres in the air. The Facebook user said it felt like "the engines were off".

Within two minutes, the same events happened again, this time for 20 seconds.

The post claimed the cabin manager had heard from the cockpit that the engines had stopped and all power was cut twice. The message said: "Luckily there was backup power ... otherwise I believe this case could have been the worst air disaster for CX and Hong Kong."

A Cathay Pacific spokesman yesterday rejected the claim, saying both of the engines on the flight had operated normally throughout the journey and "at no time were passengers or crew in any danger".

He said the flight had encountered a short electrical power interruption due to a technical problem with one of the generators. This caused a brief interruption to power for non-essential systems, such as lighting and inflight entertainment screens.

The case was reported to the Civil Aviation Department.

A department spokesman said it had not recently received any report of an engine shutdown in-flight.

He said it was mandatory for the pilot-in-command and the operator to report an engine shutdown within 96 hours.

Former civil aviation director Peter Lok Kung-nam said the case might be related to a tripped switch, which had cut the electricity supply, or to a problem with the electric circuits. He noted that planes usually had three generators.

Lok said that all the above situations were not major.

Cathay Pacific Profit Beats Estimates as Travel Demand Gains
Bloomberg
Mar 13, 2013 6:56 PM GMT+0800

Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. (293), Asia’s biggest international carrier, reported annual profit that beat analyst estimates after higher passenger numbers helped mask a drop in cargo traffic.

Net income last year dropped 83 percent to HK$916 million ($118 million), the company said in a Hong Kong stock exchange filing today. The city-based carrier was expected to make a profit of HK$538.7 million based on the average of 19 analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg. Sales increased 1 percent to HK$99.4 billion, it said. s

Chief Executive John Slosar’s introduction of promotional fares helped boost passenger numbers 5 percent last year while Wall Street’s job cuts weighed down on premium travel. With jet fuel prices rising, Cathay cut costs and is paring capacity this year as Middle East carriers such as Emirates increase competition by expanding into Asia-Pacific.

“Cathay’s cost saving measures introduced during the year bore fruit in the second half,” said Kelvin Lau, a Hong Kong- based analyst with Daiwa Securities Group Inc. “It will be a big rebound story this year.”

The airline’s shares fell 0.4 percent to close at HK$14.20 in Hong Kong trading. The city’s benchmark Hang Seng Index fell 1.5 percent.

Right Measures

Cathay posted a surprise first-half loss of HK$935 million, weighed down by slower cargo demand and losses from affiliates. Singapore Airlines Ltd. (SIA), the biggest carrier in Southeast Asia, last month reported profit that missed estimates for a fifth consecutive quarter as competition pushed down fares.

“Cargo was certainly a drag on results last year,” Slosar told reporters in Hong Kong today. “No air-cargo airline was having anything but really hard times last year.”

The company hasn’t seen any “sustained upturn” in freight business in the first couple of months this year, even though there was a pick up in the fourth quarter, he said.

Cathay’s fuel costs increased 0.8 percent last year compared with the 1.7 percent increase in the benchmark fuel price. Consumption declined 0.7 percent, the airline said.

Cargo yields last year were unchanged at HK$2.42, after cutting capacity by 3.1 percent. Passenger yield, including fuel surcharges, rose 1.2 percent to 67.3 Hong Kong cents last year and the airline, according to the statement.

Cathay and its Hong Kong Dragon Airlines Ltd. unit filled on average 80.1 percent of its seats, little changed from 80.4 percent a year earlier, according to the statement.

‘Very Challenging Year’

Slosar told staff in November the carrier was facing a “very challenging year” in 2012. Cathay has said it will cut passenger capacity 1.6 percent this year to cope with slowing international travel demand.

Cathay is retiring about half its Boeing 747-400 fleet over the next 13 or 14 months and replacing them with 777-300ERs, which though more efficient have fewer seats, Slosar had said.

Global air passenger traffic grew 5.3 percent last year, boosted by the expansion of Middle Eastern carriers and demand from markets in Latin America and Africa, according to the International Air Transport Association. Passenger traffic may grow 4.5 percent this year with cargo markets projected to increase 1.4 percent, IATA said.

Cheaper fares helped the airline and unit Hong Kong Dragon Airlines boost traveler numbers 5 percent to 28.96 million last year, the company said in a January statement.

Premium Seats

Sales at the front of the cabin, the most profitable segment of the passenger business, fell short of its expectations in December, Cathay said earlier this year. Premium-ticket prices between Asia and the U.S. averaged $5,859 in December, the lowest level since 2009, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

The company is “happy” that premium traffic is improving, Chief Operating Officer Ivan Chu said today.

Cathay said earlier this month it canceled an order for eight Boeing 777-200 freighters and instead has agreed to buy three 747-8 freighters. It also has options to purchase five 777-200 freighters and will sell four 747-400 converted freighters to Boeing as part of its fleet restructuring.

The carrier cut freighter frequencies to Europe 63 percent to 11 flights per week earlier this year from about 30 flights a week in 2008, as a decline in the Asia-Europe market hurt the carrier the most, Nick Rhodes, the airline’s cargo director, said last month.

The airline, which moves cargoes with 22 dedicated aircraft and bellies of passenger planes, carried 1.56 million tons of cargo and mail last year, 5.3 percent less than a year earlier, the company said in January. Revenue, measured by weight multiplied by kilometers, also fell 7.3 percent to 8.94 million.

Globally, the air freight market shrank 1.5 percent in 2012, according IATA.

Cathay, including its venture with DHL, had a fleet of 187 planes as the end of last year. The carrier plans to hire 1,300 staff including 200 pilots and 700 cabin crew this year, Chu said.

The company will pay a dividend of 8 Hong Kong cents.

Cathay’s Slosar Says Better Economy to Spur Business Travel
Bloomberg
Mar 14, 2013 10:16 AM GMT+0800

Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. (293), Asia’s biggest international carrier, expects an improving economy to boost premium travel after slumps in cargo and finance-industry demand for flights cut profit last year.

“The world economy is starting to look better, especially North America,” Cathay Chief Executive John Slosar said today in an interview with Susan Li on Bloomberg TV’s “First Up.”

Slosar’s introduction of promotional fares helped boost passenger numbers 5 percent last year, while job cuts at banks crimped premium travel and cargo demand slumped. Net income last year dropped 83 percent to HK$916 million ($118 million) amid a decline in freight demand and higher fuel costs, the company said in a Hong Kong stock exchange filing yesterday.

“Business travel is expected to recover modestly this year with the improvement in the world economy,” Geoffrey Cheng, an analyst at Bank of Communications Co., said today by phone. He raised his recommendation on the company to long-term buy, citing better than expected 2012 profit, driven by cost cuts.

Cathay Pacific releases combined traffic figures for February 2013
18 March 2013
Press Release

Cathay Pacific Airways today released combined Cathay Pacific and Dragonair traffic figures for February 2013 that show a sharp increase in the number of passengers carried compared to the same month in 2012, alongside a significant year-on-year decrease in cargo and mail tonnage. The large year-on-year variations were mainly due to the shift of Chinese New Year from January in 2012 to February this year.

Cathay Pacific and Dragonair carried a total of 2,340,029 passengers in February – an increase of 10.5% compared to the same month last year. The passenger load factor climbed by 6.3 percentage points to 80.8%, while capacity, measured in available seat kilometres (ASKs), dropped by 6.1%.

The two airlines carried 103,752 tonnes of cargo and mail last month, a drop of 12.0% compared to February 2012. The cargo and mail load factor fell by 4.7 percentage points to 61.1%. Capacity, measured in available cargo/mail tonne kilometres, declined by 8.3%, while cargo and mail revenue tonne kilometres were down by 14.9%.

Cathay Pacific General Manager Revenue Management James Tong said: “As with our January figures, year-on-year comparisons for February were distorted by the holiday effect. Comparing the first two months combined gives us a truer picture of our performance and it is reassuring to see a small increase in passenger numbers despite quite a significant drop in capacity. Passenger traffic was robust over the Chinese New Year holiday period, boosted by a total of 82 pairs of extra sectors to major holiday destinations. Demand in the premium cabins was in line with expectations for what is not a peak month for business travel.”

Cathay Pacific General Manager Cargo Sales & Marketing James Woodrow said: “There was no pre-Chinese New Year rush to speak of out of Mainland China and Hong Kong, and what demand there was in the market fell away as China’s factories closed. The pick-up following Chinese New Year was slower than expected. Demand on the key trade lanes to Europe and the Americas remained sluggish throughout February and we cut back our freighter schedule accordingly, though trade within the region saw a quicker rebound.”

The 747's are being phased out and a few have left the fleet already.
