Air China to hold 51 pct in cargo jv with Cathay

SHANGHAI/HONG KONG, Nov 2 (Reuters) - Air China will hold 51 percent of a cargo venture with Cathay Pacific which it hopes to finanlise in the first half of next year, a Chinese airline executive said on Monday.

An industry newsletter sent to Reuters said the two carriers will provide 10 Boeing 747-400 freighters to their Shanghai-based venture which will take off before the Shanghai world expo in May 2010. It did not say where it got the information. An Air China spokesman said discussions for the tie-up were on-going between the two carriers and no financial details, including the total investment of the venture nor size of its fleet, had been decided.

Air China in August bought a further 12.5 percent stake in Cathay, lifting its interest in the Hong Kong-based carrier to 29.99 percent.

The venture could give Air China and Cathay a foothold in Shanghai, a major air hub in the country, and help them better compete with China Eastern Airlines, which will have rough half of the Shanghai market after its planned merger with Shanghai Air.

Cathay Pacific Starts Flight To Jeddah
November 05, 2009 18:58 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 5 (Bernama) -- Cathay Pacific Airways has started flying to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, four times weekly through Dubai on the way to and from Hong Kong from Wednesday.

The airline now serves the kingdom with a total of 11 flights each week.

Its chief executive Tony Tyler said the service being operated by an Airbus A330-300 aircraft in a two-class configuration is expected to increase the airline's presence in the Middle Eastern market.

"This new service will help to connect business and leisure passengers to Cathay Pacific's extensive international network and also open up new opportunities for airfreight from the kingdom," he said in a statement Thursday.

So sad to see Cathay Pacific has to establish the policy to charge more for the certain more comfortable seats in economy.

Quote:
Cathay Pacific offers passengers the option to secure seats with additional legroom
16 November 2009

Cathay Pacific Airways announced today that it is offering passengers the option to secure seats with extra legroom in its Economy Class cabins by paying an additional charge. Previously these seats could only be reserved by certain passengers such as Marco Polo Club members of a certain level and those in the highest booking classes. Now all passengers who fulfil the safety requirements are able to book them in advance.

There is always a strong demand for extra legroom seats, and the Cathay Pacific move is in line with similar practices adopted by other major international airlines.

From 1 December 2009, Cathay Pacific customers will be able to secure an Extra-legroom Seat on long-haul flights by paying US$100 per sector. They can also pay for the seats by redeeming 20,000 Asia Miles. From 1 January 2010, passengers will be able to secure an Extra-legroom Seat on flights to Mainland China and regional destinations by paying US$25 or 5,000 Asia Miles.

Members of the Cathay Pacific’s Marco Polo Club loyalty programme (Silver tier and above), who are already able to reserve the Extra-legroom Seats, will continue to enjoy the service free of charge. The seats will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

Cathay Pacific Director Sales & Marketing James Barrington said: “Those passengers who particularly value extra legroom will now be able to secure these seats and enjoy a more comfortable journey simply by making an additional payment. At the same time, we will continue to reward our most loyal customers by offering them the Extra-legroom Seat option free of charge.”

The Extra-legroom Seats have significantly more legroom than other seats in Cathay Pacific’s Economy Class cabins. For most flights, there are between two and four Extra-legroom Seats available.

Initially the seats will be available for booking through the airlines reservations hotline or when checking at airport or in-town check-in counters. Next year passengers will be able to secure the seats through the airlines website.

Well, Cathay isn't the first one to do something like that. I wonder if they even consider adding Premium Economy?

Cathay ordered to pay more than $7M in labor case
16 November 2009
Associated Press Newswires

HONG KONG (AP) - A Hong Kong court has ruled that Cathay Pacific unfairly fired 18 pilots amid a labor dispute in 2001 and ordered the airline to pay their former employees more than $7 million.

The 18 pilots were among a group of 49 fired in July 2001 when Cathay's main pilots' union and management were locked in a dispute over wages and scheduling. The union launched a "work-to-rule" campaign, discouraging members from working beyond the terms of their contracts.

Hong Kong High Court Judge A.T. Reyes said in a ruling Wednesday the 18 pilots were unfairly dismissed and wrongfully terminated.

He said Cathay executives also defamed them by publicly accusing them of disrupting the airline's operations.
