Cathay Pacific’s new Business Class is being progressively introduced on our Boeing 777-300ER and Airbus A330-300 aircraft. Aircraft deployment varies and availability is subject to operational requirements.

Currently, HKG-FRA uses the 747 so there is no new J. You might get lucky on the MEL-HKG leg.

Cathay Pacific offers more choice and flexibility for New York travel with launch of Newark service
Press Release
13 Aug 2013

Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that it will launch a new daily service to Newark Liberty International Airport on 1 March 2014, subject to government approval. The city of Newark is located west of Manhattan Island and the new service will complement Cathay Pacific’s current four-times-daily service to John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York. The launch of the Newark service will provide more convenience and greater flexibility for passengers travelling to and from the New York metropolitan area.

The Newark service will be operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft featuring Cathay Pacific’s new cabin products, including the awarding-winning Business Class, Premium Economy Class and the new Economy Class seats. Together with the special service provided by Cathay Pacific’s cabin crew, recently named the “World’s Best Cabin Staff” by Skytrax, and a state-of-the-art inflight entertainment system in all classes, passengers will be provided with the best experience when they travel between Hong Kong and Newark.

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive John Slosar said: “Our New York service has long been popular with business and leisure travellers alike. The addition of the Newark service will provide a more convenient option for business travellers living or working in New Jersey. By providing yet more flights to the New York metropolitan area, we can offer passengers even more choice and flexibility and, at the same time, continue to boost Hong Kong’s standing as an international aviation hub.”

Newark will become Cathay Pacific’s fifth gateway in the United States. The airline currently serves Chicago, Los Angeles, New York (JFK) and San Francisco.

Cathay Pacific cuts capacity to restore profitability

BEIJING, Aug 14 (Reuters) - Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd , the world's largest international air cargo carrier, is scaling back seating capacity on some long-haul routes to offset declines in its air freight business and try to return to profitability.

Cathay, which competes in global markets with carriers such as Singapore Airlines Ltd and Korean Air Lines Co Ltd , retired three Boeing 747 jets in the first six months this year and replaced them with two smaller but more fuel efficient B777 planes, as the company squeezes more income from its North American passenger routes, its biggest market.

Hong Kong's flagship airline was the only one of Asia's top 10 carriers to cut available seat kilometres - a measure of passenger capacity - this year, down 4.8 percent in June from a year earlier, according to Thomson Reuters data. Garuda Indonesia Tbk led the gains with a jump of 16.5 percent year-on-year in April, the most recent month for which the data was available.

Cathay also has been fine-tuning its seating arrangements on U.S. flights to improve passenger yields, a gauge of profitability, according to Geoffrey Cheng, an analyst at securities brokerage BOCOM International.

"They pulled out the economy class and put back the premier economy. They have fewer seats, but revenue from each seat is higher," said Cheng.

Its first-half earnings report later on Wednesday is expected to show a swing to profitability from a HK$935 million ($120.56 million) net loss for the same period last year, according to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters. The loss was its worst performance since the outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome in 2003 curtailed air travel.

The company has been aggressively cutting capacity following an 83 percent drop in its net income last year.

In June, Cathay told analyst it had revised its 2013 forecast for available tonne kilometres - a measure of both passenger and cargo capacity - to a year-on-year decrease of 4.3 percent instead of an increase of 2.6 percent, largely because of reduced freighter capacity. However, it maintained its projection for a 1.5 percent contraction in available seat kilometres.

North America passenger traffic dropped 12.5 percent during the first half of the year, even as Cathay's passenger load factor increased by 1.2 percentage points over a year earlier. That is helping to offset a continuing drop in air freight volume. Cathay's cargo traffic declined 1.8 percent for the first six months of the year, following a 5.3 fall last year.

The airline, which is scaling back its cargo fleet, started to retire its older B747 freighters in 2012, according to Eric Lin, an analyst at UBS Investment Research in Hong Kong. In March, Cathay canceled orders for eight B777 freighters. Separately, the company will take delivery of six more B777 passenger jets later this year. ($1 = 7.7556 Hong Kong dollars)

Cathay Pacific ekes out small first-half profit as air cargo suffers from weak global economy
14 August 2013

HONG KONG (AP) - Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. scratched out a small first-half profit as weak global demand continued to batter its air cargo business.

The carrier said Wednesday it earned 24 million Hong Kong dollars ($3.1 million) in the January-June period. That's a turnaround from the restated HK$929 million it lost in the same period last year, but much less than the HK$934 million forecast by a FactSet survey of analysts.

Hong Kong's biggest airline said cargo revenue fell 5.2 percent to HK$11.3 billion from the year before. Demand has been weak since April 2011, Chairman Christopher Pratt said in a statement.

"There is still no sign of sustained improvement," Pratt said.

Cathay, the world's biggest international air cargo carrier, said it faced stronger competition on cargo routes to Europe. It halted service to Brussels and Stockholm in February because of the weak demand.

The company said it also faced strong competition for shipments from Shanghai. It cut its schedule to the mainland Chinese city of Zhengzhou in half because of reduced demand from major high-tech manufacturers.

Demand for air freight from Japan was "significantly weaker," with the slide in Japan's yen not yet helping to revive export volumes.

The company is adjusting to the lower demand by carrying more air cargo in the bellies of passenger jets rather than in dedicated freighters. It expects to save more money once its new HK$5.5 billion air cargo terminal at Hong Kong's airport is fully operational later this year.

The passenger business saw a slight improvement as the number of passengers carried by Cathay and its Dragonair affiliate rose 1.3 percent to 14.5 million. Passenger revenue rose by 0.8 percent to HK$35 billion.

But it earned less money from passengers in North Asia as travel was hurt by the outbreak of bird flu in China and North Korea's war rhetoric in response to U.S.-South Korea military drills.

The high price of jet fuel continued to have an "adverse" effect, especially on long-haul routes.

Cathay said the amount it spent on fuel fell 8.5 percent to HK$18.7 billion, but it still remained the airline's single biggest expense.

The airline also lost HK$155 million from associated companies, reflecting a poor performance at Beijing-based Air China, in which Cathay has a 20 percent stake.

First-half revenue slipped 0.6 percent to HK$48.6 billion. The company will pay a dividend of 0.6 cents a share.

No downing lawmakers in Cathay freebies row
23 August 2013
The Standard

Lawmakers have been accepting free trips from airlines since 2005, it was revealed yesterday. This came as several legislators continued to defend their acceptance of a recent trip to France offered by Cathay Pacific.

DAB lawmaker Ip Kwok-him, who traveled with his daughter, said the group discussed a third runway and budget airline licenses.

The Democratic Party's James To Kun-sun said he paid for accommodation and transport when he and his wife arrived in France a day earlier than the rest of the group.

His colleague, Albert Ho Chun-yan, said there may be further discussion about the reporting system to the Legislative Council if it is found wanting.

Executive Council member Bernard Charnwut Chan said lawmakers should be more politically sensitive, saying they should pay the costs of their family members.

But Exco member Jeffrey Lam Kin-fung, also a pro-business lawmaker, said it is not a problem taking spouses along. Exco and Legco also have reporting systems and most importantly there should be a consistent standard, Lam added.

Cathay Pacific issued a statement, saying aviation is an important industry in Hong Kong and the company has been inviting guests including lawmakers, academics and the media to events such as aircraft delivery trips and new-destination launches for many years.

The key purpose is to provide a deeper understanding of aviation development and technology innovations, it said.

The statement also mentioned that the latest trip to France by an Exco member and several lawmakers included discussions of a third runway, labor shortages in Hong Kong and development of low-cost carriers.

It also said : "Each guest was invited to bring his/her spouse or a companion as a matter of courtesy.''

I thank Cathay Pacific for offering FIRST CLASS on short-haul flights (such as Manila<->Hong Kong and Hong Kong<->Taipei)

Keep it up........because there are still millionaires and billionaires in our world who would patronize this premium flight service.

And it something for me to look forward to (hehe I wanna be rich )

LONG LIVE FIRST CLASS FOR SHORT HAUL FLIGHTS!!!

*Short Haul flights that are less than two hours maximum*

P.S.
By the way:
Are there any other full service carriers out there (aside from CX) that offer this kind of short-haul first class service?

Interesting.

But I would you use Emirates if my journey involves going to Dubai (be it for stopover or for final destination or origin). If it's for something like Hong Kong<->Thailand, I would either use Cathay Pacific or Thai Airways.

From Russia with anger, Cathay fliers head home
The Standard
Wednesday, August 28, 2013

Cathay Pacific has apologized for the three-day delay of its flight from Moscow to Hong Kong that left 258 passengers stranded.

Flight CX204, which was due to leave Moscow at 5.15pm on Sunday, was grounded in the Russian capital as a result of mechanical problems and spare parts had to be flown over to enable repairs.

Cathay said passengers were provided with food and accommodation, although some were running short of medicine for diabetes and other chronic ailments.

About 160 passengers were put on a flight leaving at noon yesterday and were expected to land at Chek Lap Kok early this morning.

The stranded passengers included nearly 100 members of three tour groups run by EGL, Wing On Travel and Kuoni Travel.

After waiting for eight hours, they were told that the flight was canceled after the aircraft returned twice to the parking bay because of a problem with the auto-brake system.

Thirty passengers were forced to stay at the airport due to visa requirements. They were flown to Hong Kong via Dubai on another carrier that left Moscow at 6pm local time on Monday.

In apologizing for the delay, a Cathay Pacific spokeswoman said: "Alternative flight arrangements are very limited."

She also said the cabin crew had reached their maximum working hours.

According to media reports, one of the passengers said her father and some of the tour members would run out of medicine for diabetes if the flight was delayed any longer.

She also said the stranded passengers had to wait for several hours before getting accommodation.

An EGL spokeswoman said 35 of its tour members were affected. "We asked Cathay Pacific to send us a letter regarding the incident so our customers may claim insurance."

A Kuoni Travel spokesman said 20 of its 42 tour members left on an Aeroflot flight yesterday at 10am Hong Kong time.

Their tour guide stayed with the remaining tour members and left on the CX204 flight.

A Cathay Pacific aircraft forced to make an emergency landing in Hong Kong used Indonesian- supplied fuel that was contaminated, according to investigators.

Fine spherical particles were found in the engine fuel components, the engine fuel system and aircraft fuel tanks, according to a bulletin yesterday from the Accident Investigation Division of the Civil Aviation Department.

"Examination and analysis indicated that those spheres could not have been generated from within the aircraft airframe or engine systems under normal operating conditions and environment," the bulletin said.

Cathay Flight 780 had pumped 24,400 kilograms of fuel at Juanda International Airport in Surabaya, Indonesia, before taking off for Hong Kong, the report said.

Before the Cathay incident, there had been extension work performed to the hydrant refueling circuit as part of Juanda airport's apron extension project. A subsequent investigation at the Indonesian airport found that some of the recommissioning procedures were not in line with industry guidelines and practices.

The hydrant refueling system was used for the Cathay aircraft before the completion of the recommissioning procedures, the report said. Flight CX780 declared a Mayday on approaching Hong Kong International Airport on April 13, with one engine stalled and the other with only 70 percent power.

The emergency landing injured 57 passengers, 10 of whom were sent to hospitals. Six tires were blown out.

The report recommended that Juanda airport authorities conduct an extensive review of the re- commissioning procedures and ensure the procedures are completed before resuming hydrant refueling at the airport.

The investigation aims to identify the cause of the loss of thrust control which led to the emergency landing of the Airbus SAS A330.

The second bulletin issued yesterday came three months after the investigation team issued its preliminary report in May. Cathay Pacific said in a separate statement no faults were found with the aircraft or engine control systems.

The Civil Aviation Department, in conjunction with the Air Accident Investigation Branch of the United Kingdom, the French civil aviation safety bureau and the US National Transportation Safety Board, will continue the investigation with the support of Airbus, Rolls-Royce and Cathay Pacific Airways.
Final report on B-HLL Airbus A330-342 aircraft accident published
Wednesday, September 4, 2013
Government Press Release



The Civil Aviation Department (CAD) today (September 4) published the final report of the investigation into the accident involving an Airbus A330-342 aircraft operated by Cathay Pacific Airways (registration mark B-HLL) at the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) that took place on April 13, 2010.

The flight, CPA780, was arriving from Surabaya, Indonesia. When approaching HKIA it declared an emergency with control problem on the engines. The aircraft subsequently landed at a high ground speed at the HKIA. The commander of the aircraft initiated an emergency evacuation of passengers. Fifty-seven passengers and six cabin crew were injured during the evacuation. Most of them sustained minor injuries.

"After the accident, the Chief Inspector of Accidents ordered an inspector's investigation in accordance with the Hong Kong Civil Aviation (Investigation of Accidents) Regulations (Chapter 448B). The objective of the investigation was to determine the circumstances and causes of the accident with a view to the preservation of life and the avoidance of accidents in the future," a CAD spokesperson said.

The investigation was conducted by a team of trained accident investigators in strict adherence to the international standards established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). The investigation report contains an analysis of the circumstances of the accident, and identifies that contaminated fuel which was uplifted at Surabaya had caused stiction in the Fuel Metering Units of both engines and eventually the total seizure of these components, rendering the loss of both engine thrust controls of the aircraft during the approach to HKIA. The CAD has promptly notified relevant authorities (including the Indonesian authority) and ICAO of immediate corrective measures required to ensure aviation safety. Noting the corrective actions taken by various parties, the investigation team has made one additional safety recommendation, i.e. the ICAO should specify the requirements of installing a device in equipment used in refueling civil aircraft. This device should be able to automatically alert the equipment operator and stop the refueling process when the differential pressure across the equipment filtration system is outside the equipment's designed value or range.

"The ICAO has taken note of the recommendation. The CAD will continue to follow up with the ICAO after the release of the final report," the spokesperson said.

Throughout the accident investigation, all parties concerned were given ample opportunity to comment on the report.

The report is available for downloading from the website of the CAD (www.cad.gov.hk/english/reports.html).

From 30 March 2014, Cathay Pacific is reassigning its codeshare flight numbers on service operated by its sister company, Dragonair, from the CX6700-6899 series to CX5000-5999. The new codeshare flight number system operated by Dragonair begins with CX5, while the last 3 digits will be identical to the current Dragonair flight number. For example, Hong Kong – Jeju service sees flight number moving from CX6790/6791 to CX5325/5326, matching Dragonair flight number KA325/326.

More details and reassigned numbers can be read here

Swire rides out Cathay turbulence
The Sunday Times
8 September 2013

Hard times at Cathay Pacific trimmed profits for John Swire & Sons, the family-owned Asian trading house that is Britain’s fifth-largest private company.

Swire owns 45% of Cathay, and said in the latest accounts that a tough aviation market had halved the Hong Kong airline’s contribution to £198m. Despite this, Swire reported little change in profits for 2011, according to accounts just filed at Companies House. Pre-tax profits were £1.2bn, down from £1.4bn in 2010.

Swire, which has been trading for 196 years, has extensive interests in Hong Kong property and a raft of other businesses across the world, from oil services and Coca-Cola bottling to shipping and British hotels. Its main operating company is Swire Pacific, listed in Hong Kong, and it employs about 121,000 people.

Brothers Sir Adrian and Sir John Swire have steered the company since the 1960s. The Swire family is worth £1.6bn, according to The Sunday Times Rich List.
