Exclusive Q+A with Cathay Pacific chief operating officer Rupert Hogg
12 February 2015
Manchester Evening News

In an interview, Cathay Pacific boss Rupert Hogg talks to Alex Bell about the airline’s direct flights between Manchester and Hong Kong and its ambition to move to a daily service

Flights from Manchester to Hong Kong have now been in operation for two months.

With that in mind Business Week caught up with Rupert Hogg, the chief operating officer of airline Cathay Pacific during his visit to Manchester.

In an interview at the Radisson Blu Hotel in the city centre, Hogg spoke of the vital importance of the service to both Manchester and Hong Kong. How has it gone so far?

We are really pleased. Passenger load factors have been up in the low 80s (%), which is what we like to see and all the signs are right for a new route. It takes us about a year to bed in a new route.

You start getting the full mix of connecting passengers coming off Flybe, for example, tourists and students coming from Manchester and Greater Manchester, the Northern Powerhouse if you like. And, of course, small, medium sized enterprises in business that link to China and to Asia, north and south as well. Going forward, are you optimistic about the flight?

The reason we think we’ll do well in this market is because, even if you are not going beyond Hong Kong, a non-stop product from Hong Kong to Europe works particularly well, timing-wise. If you are leaving Hong Kong you leave just before 1am and you are in Manchester for 6am.

It is 10-12 hours depending on the weather and the winds, so you can get a sleep and you are in during the Manchester business day. Going the other way, you leave at midday from Manchester and get in at 7am to Hong Kong.

For businessmen going back and forwards during the week, you lose half a working day. Flying at the weekend becomes even more significant. It’s a particularly good schedule. What is the demographic? Who has been using the flights so far?

Statistically, I can’t answer that at the moment. It is not something we will have collated at this stage. But we would expect the UK to make up 50% of this flight. There will also be a lot of people coming in from Hong Kong and southern China, too.

Cathay Pacific adds Kolkata to growing freighter network
Press Release Excerpt
17 Feb 2015

Cathay Pacific Airways today announced a further expansion of its freighter network with the launch of a new service to Kolkata, India, commencing 11 March 2015. Cathay Pacific will become the only carrier providing direct freighter services between Kolkata and Hong Kong.

The scheduled service will operate twice a week on a Hong Kong-New Delhi-Kolkata-Hong Kong routing. It will strengthen the airline’s airfreight presence within the subcontinent, offering customers greater choice and flexibility when moving goods between South Asia and other parts of the world.

Cathay Pacific’s Director Cargo James Woodrow said: “India is a very important market for Cathay Pacific and we are delighted to build on our existing network of five freighter destinations in the country. The new Kolkata service will boost the flow of garments and food products to and from India, taking advantage of our world-class facilities in Hong Kong to connect to our comprehensive global cargo network.”

Cathay Pacific releases combined traffic figures for January 2015
Press Release Excerpt
16 Feb 2015

Cathay Pacific Airways today released combined Cathay Pacific and Dragonair traffic figures for the first month of 2015 that show an increase in both the number of passengers carried and the cargo and mail tonnage uplifted compared to the same month in 2014.

Cathay Pacific and Dragonair carried a total of 2,612,964 passengers in January – an increase of 2.7% compared to the same month last year. The passenger load factor shrank by 0.7 percentage points to 82.7% while capacity, measured in available seat kilometres (ASKs), increased by 7.3%.

The two airlines carried 147,275 tonnes of cargo and mail last month, an increase of 12.5% compared to the previous January. The cargo and mail load factor rose by 2.9 percentage points to 63.4%. Capacity, measured in available cargo/mail tonne kilometres, rose by 8.9% while cargo and mail revenue tonne kilometres (RTKs) flown were up by 14.1%.

Cathay Pacific General Manager Revenue Management Patricia Hwang said: “The month began well, with strong returning traffic from the Christmas and New Year holidays. However, the dip in demand between New Year and Chinese New Year was steeper than anticipated and the increase in passenger numbers failed to keep pace with the increase in capacity. Passenger yield was impacted by the weakness in certain currencies, including the euro, yen and the Canadian and Australian dollars, as well as a shift in Chinese New Year which distorted year-on-year comparisons."

'Catch me if you can' pilot says he already paid HK$5.5 million to ex-wife
17 February 2015
South China Morning Post Excerpt

A Cathay Pacific pilot who was once described by a High Court judge as using a "catch me if you can" approach to avoid paying maintenance to his ex-wife claims he has paid her C$885,000 (HK$5.5 million) over the last 16 years, the Court of First Instance heard on Monday.

"I never stopped paying them," pilot Scott Henderson said when he appeared in a judicial review hearing brought by his former wife.

Henderson also told the court he never asked his ex-wife, Suzanne Ruth Henderson, to sell their former home in Canada as he did not want his two daughters to have nowhere to live.

Suzanne Henderson urged the Hong Kong court to review whether a District Court's registrar was wrong in ruling Scott Henderson was not a Hong Kong resident in both 2009 and 2013.

The couple divorced in Canada in 2000. Suzanne Henderson claims her ex-husband failed to make monthly payments and she has chased him in Canada, the United States and Hong Kong.

She wants Hong Kong to enforce an order for payment made by a Canadian family court in 2009. However, the government cannot enforce the Canadian order if he is not a Hong Kong resident.

City gets one more option to fly to Hong Kong
26 February 2015
The Times of India Excerpt

Dragonair, the sister airline of Cathay Pacific, has decided to increase its frequency between Kolkata and Hong Kong with a sixth weekly flight from May 12. Travel trade industry observers said it was only a matter of time before the airline turns the service into a daily one with a seventh flight.

The airline that launched operations in Kolkata with four departures a week in November 2012, increased the frequency to five-a-week in October 2013.

Dragonair has now announced an additional frequency during the peak summer holiday season, offering passengers greater flexibility to travel to Hong Kong.

The airline operates Airbus A320, eight seats in business class and 150 seats in economy. The new frequency takes the total number of Dragonair and Cathay Pacific flights between Hong Kong and India to 48-a-week

Sweet dreams on Cathay
13 March 2015
The Australian Excerpt

The proliferation of flat-bed business seats on long-haul airlines means service is again becoming a key differentiator, but Cathay Pacific’s Toby Smith believes “hard product” can still make a difference.

The Cathay general manager product was in Sydney this week touting the Hong Kong carrier’s new “Life Well Travelled” branding as well as some of the changes its customers could expect in the coming year.

While he agreed the so-called soft product such as food, bever*ages and service were becoming increasingly important, he noted passengers did not all interact with crew to the same degree, He said on his recent 10pm flight from Hong Kong he went straight to sleep without watching a movie or eating and did not wake up until the plane was 30 minutes out of Sydney.

“I had no interaction with crew, and really there are a lot of passengers like that,” he said. “We have a flight leaving 1am from Hong Kong (and) arriving in London Heathrow at 6am, a 12-hour flight, and someone might sleep for nine hours.

“So then it’s really the hard product. It is the bed, it is making sure we get a good night’s sleep, (that) the pillow is comfortable.

“But on a daytime flight, of course, it’s very different.” The Cathay executive saw consistency as the key to good service, noting: “You don’t want to have a good experience one week and a bad (one) the next.” But even then there were pitfalls; Mr Smith said it was absolutely fundamental that airlines recruited cabin crew for the right attitude. “We fly on average about 90,000 passengers a day and delivering consistency across 90,000 passengers is very, very hard without it becoming formulaic,” he said.

“I think our crew do a fantastic job in keeping genuine while at the same time keeping it so it’s not robotic, it’s not formulaic and it doesn’t become chaotic either.” Cathay flies 74 services a week to Australia and announced on Monday that it was upgrading a second Sydney-Hong Kong service from an Airbus A330 currently operating flights CX100 and CX101 to a bigger Boeing 777-300ER from October 1.

The move will boost capacity on the route by 8 per cent and, along with the upgrade to a B777 of flights CX138/139, means cap*acity between the two cities will have risen 18 per cent this year. The additional B777 services equate to an additional 65,156 seats a year and give Cathay additional cargo payload.

Flight CX100 leaves Sydney mid-afternoon and arrives in Hong Kong about 10pm, giving passengers good connectivity to destinations in Europe.

Area manager Nelson Chin said the decision to upgrade the second flight addressed a directional imbalance and came after the boost to flights 138/139 had been going “phenomenally well” across all cabins.

He said most of the airline’s Australian passengers travelled beyond Hong Kong and this was what Cathay saw as its growth market. This included the airline’s connectivity to 22 destinations in China as well as its growing European base.

Cathay Pacific to discontinue Moscow service from June
Press Release Excerpt
20 Mar 2015

Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that it will discontinue its thrice-weekly service between Hong Kong and Moscow with effect from 1 June 2015. Alternative arrangements will be made for passengers already booked on Cathay Pacific flights to and from Moscow after that date.

The airline explained that the Moscow service is being discontinued for commercial reasons. High operating costs have made it difficult to operate profitably on the route while the number of passengers travelling between Hong Kong and Russia has been declining.

Fired pilot tries to bypass security by using old uniform and badge
Watch the moment a pilot, who was fired from Cathay Pacific Airlines, tries to bypass security to "cut the line" and avoid taking his shoes off for security screening
The Telegraph and AP Excerpt
4:59PM BST 03 Apr 2015

A pilot who was fired from Cathay Pacific Airlines won't go to prison for wearing his former employer's uniform and badge to bypass security at Honolulu International Airport.

Joshu Osmanski was sentenced on Thursday in federal court in Honolulu to three years' probation.

He pleaded guilty last year to unlawfully entering the secure area of an airport.

Osmanski has said he wore the uniform and badge months after he was terminated so that he could "cut the line" and not have to take off his shoes during security screening.

He apologised in court at his sentencing, saying he can't explain what he did and that his actions embarrassed his family, including his children.

Cathay Pacific’s ‘rigid rules will deter musicians’
12 April 2015
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Hong Kong Sinfonietta chief urges flexibility in allowing artists to carry instruments on board

Cathay Pacific’s “rigid” rules about carrying musical instruments on board will deter classical musicians from flying with the carrier, Hong Kong Sinfonietta’s chief executive has warned.

The latest in a number of recent disputes surrounds a small trombone that had to be checked in rather than carried as hand luggage after the airline insisted it was too big for the overhead locker of its twin-aisle Boeing 777.

The Sinfonietta had given advance notice of its requirements as early as November, but the group discovered on a return flight to Hong Kong last week that two much larger, unregistered trombone cases easily fitted into cabin storage.

Some 31 Sinfonietta artists had flown via Seoul to the Tongyeong International Music Festival in South Korea where they joined 50 musicians worldwide to perform with legendary violinist Gidon Kremer.

“I think these rules will make musicians think twice about travelling with bulkier instruments on Cathay,” Sinfonietta chief Margaret Yang said, urging discretion and common sense.

Cathay Pacific releases combined traffic figures for March 2015
Press Release Excerpt
16 Apr 2015

Cathay Pacific Airways today released combined Cathay Pacific and Dragonair traffic figures for March 2015 that show a double-digit increase in the number of passengers carried compared to the same month in 2014, along with a smaller increase in the cargo and mail uplift.

Cathay Pacific and Dragonair carried a total of 2,887,106 passengers in March – an increase of 11.0% compared to the same month last year. The passenger load factor grew by 5.0 percentage points to 87.3% while capacity, measured in available seat kilometres (ASKs), increased by 5.7%. For the first quarter of 2015, passenger traffic grew by 8.6% while capacity was up by 6.9%

The two airlines carried 157,688 tonnes of cargo and mail last month, an increase of 1.5% compared to March 2014. The cargo and mail load factor rose by 1.7 percentage points to 68.4%. Capacity, measured in available cargo/mail tonne kilometres, fell by 0.1% while cargo and mail revenue tonne kilometres (RTKs) flown rose by 2.4%. For the first quarter of 2015, tonnage rose by 12.3% against a capacity increase of 9.8% and a 15.4% rise in RTKs.

Cathay Pacific General Manager Revenue Management Patricia Hwang said: “March is traditionally a shoulder season between the Chinese New Year and Easter peak periods, but this year saw passenger demand for the month rising above expectations. Demand was strong in all cabins, with high load factors to and from Southwest Pacific, Europe and the UK. Demand on the US routes caught up with the big increase in capacity introduced last year, while travel in the region was generally strong, particularly to Japan, Thailand and Singapore.”

Cathay Pacific flight forced to make priority landing at Narita
Kyodo News

HONG KONG, April 16 -- A Cathay Pacific passenger flight made a priority landing in Narita International Airport outside Tokyo on Thursday due to technical issues, the Hong Kong-based carrier said.

None of the 304 passengers and 17 crew members onboard flight CX450, which departed Hong Kong for Narita airport via Taipei, was injured, according to a company statement.

The Boeing 777-300 "experienced a technical problem in one of its engines...Our flight crew advised air traffic control of the technical problem and, in accordance with standard operating procedure, declared priority landing," the statement said.

The flight landed "uneventfully" and "passengers disembarked as normal," it said.

Cathay spokeswoman Catherine Sin said a state of emergency was not declared over the incident, which was caused by a problematic fuel filter in one of the plane's engines.
