What i was referring to would be the B744 passenger. I am aware that Cathay Pacific Cargo operates multiple B747 freighters today.

Cathay to open air freight in Cambodia
5 November 2014
Phnom Penh Post Excerpt

Cathay Pacific Airways is to launch freight and cargo services in Phnom Penh later this month in an effort to tap the rise of country’s export and import activities. The new service will commence November 23 and will operate as part of a twice-weekly circuit connecting Hong Kong; Singapore; Penang, Malaysia; and Phnom Penh, according to a statement issued on Monday.

Cathay Pacific currently operates passenger routes in Cambodia under its subsidiary Dragonair. “This new service to Phnom Penh will boost the flow of garments and other manufactured products out of Cambodia, taking advantage of our world-class facilities in Hong Kong to connect to our comprehensive cargo network,” Cathay Pacific’s director of cargo, James Woodrow was quoted saying in the November 3 press statement. Norinda Khek, communications director at Cambodia Airports, said the airline’s decision to enter Cambodia’s air freight market was unsurprising as export volumes continue to rise year-on-year.

Cathay Pilots Vote to ‘Work-to Rule’ in Better-Pay Push
Bloomberg Excerpt
Nov 6, 2014

Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. (293)’s flights may be disrupted over the peak Christmas travel season after a “big” majority of its unionized pilots voted to press ahead with a work-to-rule campaign if pay talks fail.

“The company has been open and positive; we remain hopeful of a better pay offer,” Hong Kong Aircrew Officers Association General Secretary Chris Beebe said said in a phone interview yesterday. The vote means “union leaders may now implement contract compliance at any time of their choice.”

Contract compliance is a form of industrial action in which workers put only as much effort as is stipulated in their employment contracts. Such action, also known as “work to rule,” may disrupt operations over the busy year-end period.

The union is in “early talks” with Cathay, Beebe said. Members last month voted to reject an offer from the Hong Kong-based airline of a 10 percent pay increase over three years. Cathay is Asia’s biggest international airline by passengers carried.

From the South China Morning Post:

Cathay Pacific Ponders Tightening Rules on Lounge Access

It looks like Cathay Pacific is trying to stem its lounge access to those who have attained a Gold Level membership, but will it mean less-frequent flyers may have to settle with regular waiting areas while they accumulate more miles to earn lounge access?

Quote:
Cathay Pacific passengers may soon have to fly with the airline almost once a week to qualify for unlimited lounge access, according to proposals in a consultation the airline is conducting on its Marco Polo Club frequent flyer scheme.

That would effectively downgrade passengers who qualified merely for silver-tier membership - broadly equivalent to taking 20 economy-class flights per year - to using the premium airport facilities as few as four times a year.

Unlimited lounge access would become out of their reach unless they rose to the gold tier, the second-highest level on the four-tier scheme that also includes diamond and green.

The possible changes were set out in a survey sent to Marco Polo members last month to collect feedback about the airline's main loyalty programme.

This plane must be a former Singapore Airlines plane. You can see that it uses PW4084 engine, instead of RB211.
Some of the former SQ plane in CX have actually been withdrawn.

I assume that by late 2015, CX may no longer have passenger Boeing 747-400 in service, unless if they decided to acquire Boeing 747-8i....

Cathay Pacific announces 2015 salary increment, discretionary bonus for eligible Hong Kong staff
Press Release Excerpt
04 Dec 2014

Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that it will award a pay increase to eligible Hong Kong-based ground staff and cabin crew for 2015. The airline will also offer a discretionary bonus payment for 2014, based on one month’s salary, which will be paid to eligible staff in their December salary payment.

As in the previous year, staff on a lower salary band will receive a higher increment than senior staff. More than 90% of Hong Kong staff will receive a pay increase averaging 4.5% in 2015, while senior staff will receive an increment ranging from 3.9% to 4.4%. This arrangement reflects the impact that changes in the cost of living have on staff in different salary bands.

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Ivan Chu said: “We have seen an overall improvement in our business, though the operating environment has been challenging for much of the year. In the first half in particular we were buffeted by high fuel prices, weak cargo demand and continued pressure on passenger yield. As usual, our business has been stronger in the second six months, helped by strong passenger demand in the peak travel seasons, the recent pick-up in the cargo market and the recent reduction in the fuel price.

Manchester Prepares to Welcome Cathy


"Airline chiefs will descend on Manchester Airport on Monday for the inaugural Cathay Pacific flight, to jet in and out four times weekly

The first flight non-stop direct flight to China will take off from Manchester on Monday - and it’s set to mark a business boom.

Airline chiefs will descend on Manchester Airport on Monday for the inaugural Cathay Pacific flight, to jet in and out four times weekly.

And the service can only boost an already thriving business link between Manchester and China.

Chinese tourists spent more than any other visiting shoppers in Manchester last year – paying an average £677 on each transaction.

And with the new flights that figure could soar.

As part of the China boom, Marketing Manchester has produced a Mandarin-language tax free shopping guide to the city.

Created in conjunction with Selfridges, intu Trafford Centre and Manchester Airport, the guide is distributed in China and throughout the city centre.

It includes a list of tax-free retailers and advice on how to get tax refunds - eligible to customers from outside the EU who can claim VAT back on their purchases.

Chinese tourists represent 50 per cent of Manchester’s income from tax-free shopping, spending an average of £677 per transaction last year.

Such is their spending power, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges have installed China Union Pay chip and pin terminals in store so people can pay with Chinese credit cards

Gerry Yeung from the Yang Sing Cathay at the Trafford Centre, said: “As an authentic Oriental restaurant, we have noticed more and more Chinese tourists and students coming to dine with us, and we expect this to grow bigger in the future. Our extensive menu and Mandarin speaking staff are perfectly placed to serve this growing market. We’re also seeing places like Thailand and Kuwait growing in importance, so this is a very interesting time indeed for Manchester tourism.”

Jane Sharrocks, Heart of Manchester BID chairman and general manager at Selfridges Exchange Square said: “Our role is to help our retailers maximise international spend through marketing campaigns, training opportunities, events and by accessing the city’s extensive international student community.”route

House of Fraser now runs beauty classes in Mandarin, including the Chinese Healthy Skin masterclass this Thursday at 2pm".

Will Etihad do a bacon sandwich for that price? I didn't think so.

tullamarine I don't think Etihad (or Emirates for that matter) will do a bacon sandwich at any price!!! Qantas customers on Sydney/Melbourne-London lost bacon from the breakfast menu following the Emirates alliance.

BaconButty I finally understand the true horrors of globalization.
