Anger after fire alarm causes Cathay flight to be aborted
Fire alarm forces flight to be aborted and passenger says the incident confirms his fears about ancient Boeing 777s used on regional routes

A Cathay Pacific plane with more than 200 passengers on board was forced to make an emergency landing in Bangkok after a fire alarm in its cargo hold went off minutes after it took off for Hong Kong.

Fire engines and emergency vehicles raced out to the Boeing 777-300, which was ordered to taxi to a remote part of the airfield after making a steep turn to touch back down in Bangkok just 29 minutes after it left.

Shaken passengers were kept on board for 90 minutes after Wednesday morning's drama as firemen checked the plane before they were taken back to the airport and made to wait for hours before being put on alternative flights.

A regular flier sitting in the front on flight CX700, which had 206 passengers, recounted the drama yesterday and said the incident confirmed his concerns about the older Boeing 777 planes used on regional routes.

The passenger, who asked not to be named, said: "We were only a few minutes into the flight when the pilot came onto the PA and said: 'We have a problem. We are going to have to return to Bangkok'.

"But then, in a somewhat terse voice, he said, 'All attendants to emergency posts'. As soon as he said that, everyone tensed up and I thought: 'This isn't good'.

"We proceeded to do a very sharp turn and then fly in a fairly direct line back to Bangkok airport. The landing was absolutely fine, but we landed surrounded by fire engines and ambulances.

"The captain said: 'We are safely on the ground. We have had an indication of a fire on board so we have been taken to a remote part of the airport and the fire services are doing an inspection of the plane'.

"There were no flames pouring out of the plane and it's entirely possible that it was something as simple as a defective light on a panel. As a passenger it's impossible to know. What I find frustrating is that since this happened, we have had no explanation, no e-mail, no phone call and no apology - nothing."

The passenger - a businessman who holds a Cathay Pacific Diamond Card reserved for the most frequent fliers - said: "I've told my secretary not to book me on the 777s. I get her to look at what planes they have on each flight and I normally won't fly if it's a 777.

"I've been worried about this for some time. I have felt these things are beyond serviceable. They are 20-plus years old and the airline has said in the past it would phase them out."

He added: "I have nothing but praise for the pilot and the crew. The pilot came across as very calm. He did the world's biggest U-turn but he did it with great aplomb.

"It's not the people that are the problem. It's the mechanical side of it. It's the fact that Cathay is maintaining a fleet that is inconsistent. You fly a brand new [Airbus] 330 and then a 20-year-old 777 on the same route one week after the next. That can't be maintainable."

In a written statement, a Cathay spokeswoman said: "Cathay Pacific confirms that flight CX700 from Bangkok to Hong Kong made a precautionary return to Bangkok after a cargo compartment fire warning light came on.

"The aircraft landed safely and responding agencies found no signs of smoke or fire in the compartment. Passengers have been accommodated on other Cathay Pacific flights or those of other airlines.

"Cathay Pacific's flight CX700 was a continuation of its flight from Colombo to Bangkok. The airline apologises for the inconvenience caused to passengers on these flights."

The spokeswoman said that the aircraft was returned to service on Friday and the cause of the incident was still being investigated.

"Safety is our top priority at all times and all our aircraft are safe," she said.
Question: with that incident in mind, is CX getting more B77Ws to replace the oldest B772s and B773s, or is it going to get even more A333s in the process? I mean, that passenger's point about inconsistency is valid: it has newer A330s while operating older B772s and B773s...

Cathay Pacific Airways has placed a firm order with Airbus for 15 more A330-300s. Scheduled for delivery from 2013, the aircraft will join the airline's existing A330 fleet flying on services across the Asia-Pacific region.

That's great. Hopefully, with the progressive introduction of more A330s, the oldest B772s and B773s will be retired soon. Will those have the regional cabin configuration, or will the orders have both the regional and long-haul configurations? I mean, CX operates the A330s within Asia, to the Middle East, and to Oceania, which may require different seating needs.

At 5,500 nautical mile range, the A330-300 in Cathay Pacific service has enough range to cover all of eastern Asia and all of Australia from Hong Kong. I'm not surprised that the airline is buying more of these planes to replace the older 777's.

Indeed. I'm also thinking if all its A330s will be fitted with a 3-class product (Business, Premium Economy, and Economy) instead of just a 2-class product I've been seeing in most of its flights... And I even have had this thought of CX adding a First Class cabin on some of its newer A330s so that it can provide even more premium services for intra-Asian flights.

High-speed rail in southern China could challenge Dragonair, but only under combination of factors
CAPA
27th May, 2013

Source : http://pic.feeyo.com/posts/586/5863098.html



The convergence of China’s domestic high-speed rail as well as high-speed rail linking mainland China with Hong Kong could potentially undermine Dragonair’s southern China network, a possibility the carrier is increasingly beginning to consider.

With HSR not due to link Hong Kong until 2015, there is time for this scenario to evolve.

Any impact to Dragonair and other carriers would have to occur with an alignment of factors. Currently at least this seems more unlikely than likely: low HSR ticket prices, convenient station locations, maximum train speeds and integrated border control.

There is also the possibility Dragonair and other carriers could swap routes for others as Hong Kong Airport slots become more scarce.

HSR could efficiently link Hong Kong to parts of southern China

There are two high-speed rail lines of interest to Hong Kong. First is the Hong Kong-Beijing HSR line passing through Shenzhen and Guangzhou around the Pearl River Delta and then through central parts of mainland China (such as Dragonair destinations Changsha and Wuhan) en route to Beijing. Speeds will top at 350km/h although recently have been run to a maximum of 300km/h. The second is a line from Shenzhen to Hangzhou (south of Shanghai) that hugs China's eastern seaboard and will pass through Dragonair destinations Xiamen, Fuzhou, Wenzhou and Ningbo (Dragonair also serves Hangzhou). It will have a maximum speed of 250km/h.

The Xiamen-Shenzhen portion, the final one to be completed, is due to open in late 2013. The Shenzhen-Hong Kong HSR link (which continues to Guangzhou with Beijing as its final destination) will not open until 2015 and will run at only 200km/h, although this is faster than the existing Hong Kong-Guangzhou link, which has a maximum speed of 160km/h (and has a more circuitous path). The Guangzhou-Beijing HSR section opened in late 2012.

The core guiding principle for pitting HSR against air services is that HSR is usually (but not always) competitive against air services on routes under 800km. Routes between 800-1200km can be competitive under certain conditions, namely if HSR is "high speed" (generally considered 250km/h or above). Four Dragonair cities along the HSR path are under or around 800km from Hong Kong: Hong Kong to Guangzhou is 136km while to Xiamen is 497km, and to Fuzhou is 709km and to Changsha is 645km.

Some 8.7% of Dragonair's mainland China network is on routes under 800km. But this includes short routes like Haikou and Sanya that will not have competitive high-speed rail in the medium term at least. An estimate of the percentage of Dragonair's ASKs in 1H2013 that could theoretically come under pressure from HSR in the medium term is 7.1%, but there will need to be significant developments for even that small percentage, or a fraction of it, to come under threat. The 7.1% figure corresponds to 4.6% of all Dragonair ASKs.

Routes under 1200km, the very, very upper limit of HSR's competitiveness, account for 29.6% of Dragonair's mainland China ASKs. But many of these cities between 800km and 1200km (Hangzhou, Ningbo, Wenzhou) are along the path of HSR that will run at 200-250km/h, all but eliminating their ability to compete with notable portions of the air market.

High-flying airline lands top awards
The Standard
Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Dragonair will provide passengers with a range of offers from next month to celebrate the local carrier winning the Skytrax World's Best Regional Airline award for the third time.

The award was based on the votes of more than 18 million passengers from over 160 countries.

The airline, part of the Cathay Pacific Group, was also named Best Regional Airline in Asia in the same survey.

Running until September, the perks include doubling Asia Miles for residents of Hong Kong and Macau who book return flights to the mainland, in-flight sales offers, and tasty treats including serving bigger portions of Haagen- Dazs ice cream on flights.

The airline will also refurbish its business- and economy-class cabins on most of its aircraft and install a new on-demand in-flight entertainment system, Studio KA.

Chief executive Patrick Yeung Wai-tim said Dragonair will buy a new Airbus A330 this year, and increase services to some of its current destinations. It flies to 45 places.

Daily flights to Wuhan will be increased to 10, while those to Danang, Vietnam will rise to four. There will also be daily flights to Chiang Mai in Thailand. Yeung also said that during the summer holidays, an extra 20 to 30 flights will be added to Japan routes.

The airline will recruit 100 cabin crew and 40 pilots this year, and enroll 30 local young people into its cadet pilot program.

When asked whether a plan by rival Hong Kong Express to pivot from full-service airline to low-cost carrier will add fierce competition to Dragonair and increase pressure on ticket prices, Yeung replied that every airline has its own positioning. "It depends on what price passengers want to pay and what kind of service they want."

Pilots take Cathay Pacific to court over pay dispute
Aircrew union sues airline for short-changing some 600 pilots on their statutory holiday salary, demanding a payout totalling millions
South China Morning Post
Tuesday, 02 July, 2013

Cathay Pacific is facing a multimillion-dollar lawsuit, with its pilots accusing it of short-changing them on statutory holiday pay.

The Hong Kong Aircrew Officers Association filed the claims from about 600 of the airline's pilots to the Labour Tribunal last month. It follows September's Court of Final Appeal victory for cabin crew who sued Cathay for failing to give them their full statutory holiday pay.

Dennis Dolan, the association's general secretary, said the union was claiming that Cathay's formula for calculating pilots' statutory holiday pay was unsuitable. "It is not calculated properly. [The airline's] formula does not include all factors that should be considered," he told the South China Morning Post, adding that the airline was looking at a payout totalling "millions".

A Cathay pilot who requested anonymity said the formula did not factor in overtime pay, and that pilots who joined Cathay around 2006 were demanding about HK$50,000 each and captains about HK$200,000.

"What I find sad is that the company benefits so much from Hong Kong - it gets a low tax rate … it gets extremely pro-business labour laws, and yet it does not want to pay anything for all these benefits," the pilot said.

What I find sad is that the company benefits so much from Hong Kong - it gets a low tax rate … it gets extremely pro-business labour laws, and yet it does not want to pay anything for all these benefits

According to the union's newsletter sent to members last month, the method for calculating statutory holiday pay changed after amendments to the Employment Ordinance in 2007, which meant commission payments had to be included in the calculation.

"If the company is not prepared to discuss a means of resolving this issue, it is likely that this will be a long and drawn-out process," the newsletter stated.

In September's ruling, the Court of Final Appeal said certain allowances should be considered in calculating the holiday pay, such as commissions on duty-free sales.

Dolan said the union had discussed the issue with airline representatives. The meeting was "neither positive nor negative", he said, but both parties failed to agree on which factors should be included in the formula. The union was willing to hold talks with the airline ahead of the tribunal, he added.

Meanwhile, the union envisaged the process of filing the claims would take a few more weeks to complete.

A Cathay spokeswoman said: "We are aware of the matter and have already had discussions with the union ... We have not received any notification from the Labour Tribunal."

Couple fined after assaulting police at Hong Kong airport over flight delay
South China Morning Post
Monday, 08 July, 2013, 7:37pm

A couple from Jiangsu who took out their anger over a long flight delay at Hong Kong International Airport last Friday on Cathay Pacific ground crew and a police officer pleaded guilty to assault on Monday.

In Tsuen Wan Magistrate’s Court on Monday, Xu Jun, 35, who was charged with criminal damage and common assault and his wife, Wan Yejun, 34, who was charged with assaulting a police officer, pleaded guilty and were fined HK$2,000 dollars and HK$2,500 dollars respectively.

Xu and Wan were supposed to board flight CX364 to Shanghai at 5.35pm on Friday, but the flight was repeatedly delayed due to air traffic control problems in Shanghai, according to Chinese media.

At about 9pm, Xu – after becoming increasingly impatient with the delay – approached Cathay counter staff at the gate, flung a computer keyboard to the ground and poured a soft drink on two Cathay employees who were trying to calm him, police said on Monday.

Once the police arrived, Xu was arrested, but his wife became belligerent and injured a police officer after striking the officer on the back, police said.

Cathay Pacific later told the Southern Metropolis Daily that the flight finally took off at 9am on Saturday after a 16 hour delay.

Aren't these rather lenient penalties for the acts committed?

Guess the damage wasn't excessive and the injuries were not significant, although it does feel a slap-in-the-arm fine. Had this happened onboard, the punishment would have been far more severe.
