HK Govt OKs 33% Rise In Cathay Pacific Fuel Surcharges
24 July 2009

HONG KONG (Dow Jones)--The Hong Kong government said Friday it approved Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd.'s (0293.HK) application to raise passenger fuel surcharges by 33% and continue collecting them in August and September in response to a rise in international fuel prices.

The Civil Aviation Department, which reviews fuel surcharge applications for airlines flying into Hong Kong every two months, said it also approved requests to extend and raise charges from Singapore Airlines Ltd. (C6L.SG) and Nepal Airlines.

Cathay Pacific will raise the surcharge for shorthaul flights within Asia to HK$69 per journey from HK$52, while the surcharge for longhaul flights will increase to HK$318 from HK$239.

The airline's new surcharges are still sharply lower than their peak levels in August-September last year, when it collected HK$231 for shorthaul flights and HK$924 for longhaul trips.

Other airlines operating in Hong Kong will likely make similar applications before the end of July.

I doubt it. Vancouver is a much bigger market for CX in that region.

Yea NWA is not adding a direct it will just stop in Tokyo

But Seattle is such a big market and Cathay could really give Eva a run for its money as it is the only airline that flies to SE Asia and offers connections further south.

anything come of reports last year to restart the Manchester to HK route? The route to England's second city ended in 2002.

國泰 14員工獲頒服務獎


2009年07月28日



【本報訊】耳鼓受傷的女童流落異鄉,國泰女職員 Amanda擔當臨時保母,陪伴女童兩天,直至女童的母親由別處到來, Amanda自己年幼女兒反而要留給朋友暫時照顧。昨日 Amanda獲國泰頒發服務大獎,表揚她的愛心和服務精神。
十四名國泰員工昨日獲頒服務獎。去年一名女童獨自乘搭國泰航機,由澳洲布里斯班來港轉機往倫敦,航機中途停開恩茲時,女童因耳鼓損傷,被醫生診斷 10天內不宜再乘搭飛機。她的母親卻未能即時趕赴當地,任職顧客服務經理的 Amanda Jessop-Shaw願意挑起照顧女童的責任,在酒店陪同女童等候母親。


照顧女童犧牲與女共聚
然而 Amanda的丈夫公幹在外,自己年幼的女兒又無人照料,在此兩難局面之下,她要把女兒交託給朋友照顧,一邊透過電話安慰女兒,一邊悉心照顧這位幼小的乘客,直至其母親在兩天後到達為止。

they still run those 747 rust buckets? (they aren't that old) But I think increasingly the 777 is just a more versatile plane. good think Cathay offers nonstop T.O - HK service! that means the newer planes have to fly that route

I thought 747s are being phased out and many have been converted to freighters.

A couple years ago, before Global FInancial Meltdown, they (CX) hinted they'd replace their 747-400's with A380-900's, if Airbus was to make a stretched variant as it's CASM would be unmatched.

The oldest 777s are only 5-6 years older than the oldest 744s (the only 747 CX flies). The 747 offer an ultimately higher capacity which I think is a good combination with the 777 to optimize occupancy rates.

Given they just finished renovating their entire fleet with the new cabin I'm guessing they'll have a few years left with CX before being sold off.

Has CX got rid of all the 747-200 freights yet? I know it's been a while since only 744s flown in the passenger side.

Although the 744 has a bigger capacity, but it doesn't add frequency.
Like the HKG<>JFK route, it used to be 744 one per day via Vancouver; then it became the smaller A346 with two flights, one direct and one via YVR.
Now, it flies with the even smaller 777-300ER, but three times a day with two direct flights.
If CX is too concern about flight capacity, it would have ordered the A380, but it's waiting for the smaller 787 instead which can add frequency for services.

New York is a key business market, so the focus is on more frequencies rather than the using biggest jets in the world. I recall when I flew that route in 2006 summer, I had a very hard time booking the A346 direct flight. My return trip had to go through Vancouver, although it was sunny that day so I got some very memorable aerial shots.

I still wonder what percentage of the NY passenger group is transit service at HK to/from other Asia's destinations/origins.
