Cathay Pacific Cargo has launched daily freighter services from Hong Kong to Shanghai using Boeing 747-200F aircraft, making it the second mainland China city served after it resumed passenger services to Beijing in December 2003, after a 13 year break (ref: Airliner World, March 2005).
The first flight to land at the new Hong Kong International Airport, Chek Lap Kok, was the Cathay Pacific flight CX889 from New York John F. Kennedy International Airport, USA, non-stop and flying over the North Pole, which arrived on 6 July 1998. This flight was named Polar One. The last commercial flight to leave Hong Kong's old Kai Tak Airport was the CX251 flight to London Heathrow Airport.
Cathay Pacific operates twice daily return non-stop flights from Hong Kong to New York JFK that fly approximately over the North Pole CX830 & CX840 operate From HKG to JFK; CX831 & CX841 operate JFK to HKG. It is Cathay Pacific's longest non-stop flight, as well as one of the longest non-stop flights by distance in the world at 8,055 mi (12,963 km), lasting for approximately 16 hours. Continental Airlines also operates on this route, departing from Newark Liberty International Airport. In addition, Cathay Pacific operates daily return Hong Kong-Toronto non-stop flights, (CX826/827) which are also operated via polar routes. These routes are now flown using Cathay Pacific's B777-300ERs.
On 29 April 2007, Cathay Pacific suspended its flights to Bandaranaike International Airport, Colombo, after several attacks on the airport by a para-military group but flights to and from Colombo have been resumed since then.
During 2008, Cathay Pacific increased frequencies to India, Middle East and Australia, while cutting flights to Canada and the United States.
During 2009, Cathay Pacific increased frequencies to Paris, Shanghai and Jakarta in the airline's summer schedule.

14,000 staff at airlines to take unpaid leave
25 April 2009
South China Morning Post

About 14,000 Cathay Pacific and Dragonair staff agreed yesterday to take unpaid leave, a week after the cost-cutting scheme was announced by the sister airlines, Cathay Pacific said yesterday.

The response, from about 70 per cent of the two airlines' global workforce, includes 77 per cent of Cathay flight attendants and 85 per cent of ground staff, all of whom received details of the scheme on Monday, the airline announced.

Cathay Pacific said on April 17 that it wanted all staff to take unpaid leave of between one and four weeks to help the company deal with the impact of the global financial crisis.

The deadline for accepting unpaid leave was extended yesterday from Thursday to May 10, the airline said, to allow flying crew on roster duty and staff on leave more time to consider the scheme. But the extension came a day after Cathay pilots said they had been granted more time at the request of their union.

The largely positive response to the scheme comes despite continuing resistance from the 5,000-member Cathay Pacific Flight Attendants Union and the Aircrew Officers Association, which have urged members not to sign for unpaid leave yet.

Cathay chief executive Tony Tyler said last night: "In extending the deadline, we recognise that some of our staff will need more time to {hellip} consider the facts."

In an e-mail message to all Cathay Pacific staff yesterday, Mr Tyler wrote: "I urge those who haven't yet signed up [for unpaid leave] to do so, showing that you want to be part of the team which will support the airline through the extremely challenging time we currently face."

There was no immediate response last night to the figures from the two main staff unions.

Cathay Pacific: No Abnormality In North America Bookings
28 April 2009

HONG KONG (Dow Jones)--Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. (0293.HK) said Tuesday there has been no abnormality in its bookings on North American routes as a result of the swine flu outbreak, but it said it will closely monitor developments.

The Hong Kong-based carrier said it has been advised to make in-flight announcements on all flights into Hong Kong to remind passengers who are feeling unwell, and have visited Mexico or parts of the U.S. in the last seven days, to seek an assessment by health authorities upon arrival.

Cathay Pacific doesn't fly to Mexico. In North America, the airline operates passenger services to Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Vancouver and Toronto.

Cathay Pacific to Reduce Flights to Taiwan, China Starting May
29 April 2009
Taiwan Economic News

Taipei, April 29, 2009 (CENS)--Impacted by direct flights between Taiwan and China, the Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific Airways and its subsidiary—Hong Kong Dragon Airlines (Dragonair) recently announced its cutback in global flights, particularly from Hong Kong to Taiwan and China, starting in May.

Such reduced flights will see Cathay Pacific downsize its operational scale by 8%-11% and Dragonair by 11%-13%, with the former planning to cut passenger flights to London, Paris, Frankfurt, Sidney, Singapore, Bangkok, Seoul, Taipei, Tokyo, Mumbai, and Dubai, and the latter scaling back flights to South Korea and China.

Cathay Pacific will ground four daily flights to Taiwan, and Dragonair intends to suspend flying to Taichung, a city in central Taiwan, and large cities in China including Shenyang and Dalian of Liaoning Province, Gueilin of Guangxi Province, and Xian of Shanxi Province, as well as Shanghai and Sanya of Hainan.

In terms of cargo operation, Cathay Pacific will reduce its weekly flights to 84 from 124 during the 2008 peak.

I think the services between HK and Taipei will be cut by half on a long-term basis.

I don't think I've ever been on a full plane for HKG - TPE. There is so much capacity - even 747s among the Taiwanese competitors.

Australia watchdog alleges Cathay Pacific fixed prices
30 April 2009
Agence France Presse

Australia's competition watchdog said Thursday it was launching legal action against Cathay Pacific, accusing the Hong Kong airline of price-fixing in the cargo market.

The move comes just four months after regulators in New Zealand accused Cathay Pacific of being part of a cartel to set air cargo prices.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) said it would seek penalties against Cathay, the eighth airline it had pursued over the price-fixing allegations.

The regulator accused Cathay of reaching agreements with other airlines to fix air cargo surcharges.

It said places where the agreements were reached included Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong, the United Arab Emirates, India, Japan and Italy.

The ACCC said it had so far secured fines totalling 41 million Australian dollars (28.7 million US) from airlines over price fixing in the cargo market.

"The ACCC continues to investigate other airlines with the assistance of cooperating parties and further actions are expected over the next few months," it said in a statement.

A preliminary hearing will be held on May 28.

Carolyn Leung, a spokeswoman for Cathay, said the carrier had not expected the legal move.

"Cathay Pacific is very surprised and concerned by being named by ACCC as a participant in an alleged global air cargo cartel," she said in a statement.

"Cathay Pacific will vigorously defend its actions in any proceedings in any jurisdiction, including Australia."

In New Zealand, Cathay is one of 13 airlines accused of colluding to raise air freight prices by imposing fuel surcharges.

Cathay staff demand right to wear masks
1 May 2009
South China Morning Post

Cathay Pacific flight attendants yesterday demanded to be allowed to wear face masks and gloves on flights to guard against swine flu, and called on the government to intervene if the airline continued to refuse their request.

The 5,000-member Flight Attendants Union said cabin crew feared for their safety as the World Health Organisation yesterday raised its pandemic alert to level five, the second-highest level.

However, Cathay Pacific was last night resisting calls for staff to be allowed to wear face masks and gloves as they did at the peak of the Sars scare, while Secretary for Food and Health York Chow Yat-ngok refused to be drawn into the row.

Union chairwoman Becky Kwan Siu-wa said the company appeared to be too concerned about image to allow masks to be worn. "If they continue to refuse our reasonable request, we will ask the Department of Health to intervene," she said.

Ms Kwan said the company had, since 2003's severe acute respiratory syndrome outbreak, introduced "comprehensive preventative measures" for the use of masks and gloves when passengers fell sick, but would not allow flight attendants to use gloves even when collecting trays.

"When you collect the trays the chances of your hands being in direct contact with passengers' bodily fluids, such as saliva, is greatly increased," she said.

"I think it [Cathay's refusal] is to do with image. But if we send out the message that we are safe and hygienic by wearing masks and gloves, it will improve our image."

Dr Chow declined to comment on whether all airline staff should wear face masks, saying it depended on which countries were involved.

A Cathay spokeswoman said: "The airline has increased the stock of face masks available on flights as a precautionary measure. However ... procedures are in place for where and when crew are advised to wear masks when dealing with suspected cases."

BAR and CX welcomes relief package from Hong Kong Airport Authority
27 April 2009
Press Release

The Board of the Airline Representatives in Hong Kong (BAR HK) and Cathay Pacific welcome the HK$450 million relief package announced by the Hong Kong Airport Authority (AA) to assist airlines to overcome the current difficult operating environment.

Mr. Joe Ng, Vice Chairman of BAR HK said: “The 10% reduction in both landing and parking charges until the end of 2009 and the deferral of half of the rental payments for airline lounges, office premises and facilities for up to one year will help our members reduce operating costs in the midst of falling passenger demand and revenue brought on by the financial meltdown.

“The aviation industry is hard hit by the economic downturn and prospects for the remainder of 2009 are extremely challenging. We appreciate AA’s consultation with industry operators and the relief measures to help maintain Hong Kong as the premier aviation hub in the region.”

BAR HK is an industry body which represents 63 airlines with operations in Hong Kong to and from all over the world.

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Tony Tyler said: “We welcome the Airport Authority’s timely package of relief measures. As the biggest airline operator at Hong Kong International Airport, we appreciate all the savings we can get from the Airport Authority and our other suppliers. It is essential for airlines and the airport to work closely together, especially in these challenging times, to underpin the competitiveness of the Hong Kong aviation hub.”

Cathay backs down on masks for cabin crew
3 May 2009
South China Morning Post

Cathay Pacific yesterday backed down on its refusal to allow flight attendants to wear face masks after Secretary for Health York Chow Yat-ngok appealed for it to respond to staff fears over swine flu.

The airline announced its change of policy hours after Dr Chow said he believed that if airline staff wanted to wear masks, airlines should be flexible and allow them to.

The U-turn came after the chairwoman of the 5,000-member Flight Attendants Union sent out an appeal to members to defy the ban after Hong Kong's first swine flu case was confirmed on Friday evening.

Becky Kwan Siu-wa had written to Dr Chow asking for his support in the union's demands for cabin crew to be allowed to wear masks and gloves.

A Cathay Pacific spokeswoman said: "In light of the escalating concerns with the global threat {hellip} we understand some of our staff may be anxious about the situation and wish to wear a mask.

"Therefore, for personal considerations, staff choosing to wear masks may do so. They should discuss this with their supervisors."

Earlier, Dr Chow had told reporters: "[If] staff actually feel unwell and uncomfortable not wearing a mask, I think they [employers] should be more flexible and allow them to wear [face masks]."

Responding to the news, Ms Kwan said: "We are very pleased. Before this happened we sent an e-mail to members telling them to put their own personal safety first and wear masks and gloves if they wanted to."

Airline faces appeal over its pay rules
6 May 2009
South China Morning Post

Three Cathay Pacific flight attendants who challenged the airline's pay rules won their bid for an appeal yesterday.

The trio had won a partial victory at the Labour Tribunal earlier this year, which Cathay is appealing against amid speculation that the airline could be forced to settle as much as HK$100 million in similar claims.

But the tribunal's ruling also found that Cathay was not required to include overnight and overseas expenses in holiday pay.

That would substantially reduce the claim from attendants Becky Kwan Siu-wa, Vera Wu Yee-mei and Jenny Ho Kit-man.

Mr Justice Andrew Cheung Kui-nung ruled that the trio's bid to challenge that part of the tribunal's ruling could go to a full hearing. Their appeal would be heard with the airline's appeal, he said.

A key question would be whether the allowances were a contractual obligation or a discretionary payment, as Cathay claimed.

Finnair and Cathay Pacific enhance cooperation

Finnair and its oneworld alliance partner Cathay Pacific start code-share flights between Hong Kong and Brisbane in Australia on May 8. Finnair flies to Hong Kong daily with Airbus A340 aircraft.


- Thanks to the cooperation, Finnair will be able to offer even more schedule, destination and route choices for customers travelling to Australia," says Mikko Komi, Director, Commercial Partnerships, from Finnair´s Alliances department.

- The connections at Hong Kong airport are convenient and the increased number of destinations in Australia gives flexibility in travel plans for Finnair customers."

Finnair and Cathay Pacific have cooperated earlier on routes between Hong Kong and Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. Now Finnair can also sell Cathay Pacific operated flights with Finnair flight numbers to Brisbane. Cathay Pacific can sell tickets with its own flight number to Finnair flights from Paris, Rome, Frankfurt, Amsterdam and London as a connection to its own flights to Australia.

i think they're rather happy with it - can't really see them making a drastic change to their livery.

personally, dont think there's anything wrong with the logo and all that - but i have issues with the interior - the minty green is sometimes a bit overbearing.. they'd probably learn from SIA - their livery is timeless and the interior does not necessary have to stick with their corporate colours. it has shades of gold but it's much bolder when it comes to using colours in the cabin!
