Cathay Pacific set to announce direct flights to Cape Town
Move is part of the airline’s expansion plans designed to combat increasingly stiff competition from mainland carriers
January 20, 2018
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Cathay Pacific Airways is poised to announce non-stop flights from Hong Kong to Cape Town, as it looks to fight back at cutthroat competition from mainland Chinese carriers.

A year-round service to launch later this year will be announced soon, two people familiar with the plans said, cementing 2018 as one of the airline’s biggest years of expansion, pending approval from authorities.

Despite South Africa’s second-largest city having a robust regional economy as a major shipping port for trade, its historic landmarks make it popular for tourism. The flights to Hong Kong will be its first non-stop service to Asia in more than six years.

For now, no mainland Chinese carrier flies to the South African city.

Competition from the state-run Air China, China Eastern, China Southern Airlines, some of the largest airlines in the world, and privately held Hainan Airlines have been a thorn in Cathay Pacific’s side in the past couple of years.

Interesting that while the article mentions cutthroat competitions with mainland carriers as the reason, it also mentions that no mainland carrier flies nonstop to Cape Town. In fact, maybe there's only one or two that flies to JNB. So it must be something else not the mainland competitors. Unlikely to be SQ or other EU carriers. Likely to be EK, QR and even TK.

When CX mounts this route, I'd be happy to try it out. CPT, at least, is a level playing field for most carriers as it is not a big hub (not like JNB, where at least 3 or 4 carriers send their superjumbos). An A359 to CPT may be just the right a/c for CX to CPT.

Lounge users in line for upgraded service at Hong Kong airport as Cathay Pacific changes manager
French hospitality company Sodexo to take over operations of six lounges at Hong Kong airport, replacing global operator Plaza Premium
South China Morning Post Excerpt
January 22, 2018

Users of Cathay Pacific Airways’ Hong Kong airport lounges could be in line for a service and experience upgrade with the current much-criticised operator to be replaced by a French company.

Travel experts cautiously welcomed the move to replace Plaza Premium Group as manager of the lounges.

Hundreds of lounge staff are expected to be briefed in the coming days with French hospitality company Sodexo – which runs Virgin Atlantic’s acclaimed “Clubhouse” premium airport facilities – taking over from the Hong Kong-based global lounge operator.

The move comes with Plaza having faced complaints from premium travellers for a perceived downgrading in the quality of food served in Cathay’s lounges.

Plaza will hand over to Sodexo, whose lounge clients include Singapore Airlines, Air France, United and Emirates, in a planned “smooth transition” throughout 2018, the airline said. The takeover is likely to coincide with Cathay Pacific’s opening of a newly refurbished lounge in Hong Kong International Airport which is due in the first quarter this year.
