A welcome Beast from the East! Looks like this is in lieu of the rumoured increase in frequency, for now at least. Seating config 46J/32PE/256Y Total 334, an increase of 54 seats per day.

Even if there is no increase in frequency for now, the larger a/c means nearly 20% uplift in seats with increases in all 3 classes. It would be interesting to know the dispersal of pax at HK from the MAN flights and what proportion connect to mainland China.

CX equip change to -1000 is only temporary for now, runs Dec till Feb, then back to -900.

I am really looking forward to seeing this beast at MAN :D

Saw the prototype -1000 in Hamburg (XFW) last week, a very attractive and impressive aircraft. Will be great to see them in MAN.

The first CX 350-1000 gets delivered next month, by the end of the year there will be 6 in total, now math is not my strongest suit, but 6 into 14 doesn't quite work!

Plus bear in mind a new service starts to the US in December which will be operated by the -1000.

So chances are you may see the odd 1 or 2 a week in December.

LAX_LHR 21st May 2018 20:59

So are you suggesting the bookable & daily -1000 May get drawn back to just 1/2 a week in December?

eggc 21st May 2018 21:22

That could be awkward if they sell the extra 54 seats daily the -1000 provides...and a -900 turns up :}

Some more news, PIA increasing flights to Islamabad, up to 7 x weekly at some points

CX216 CX217 is being sold as a A350-1000 from the 1sr Dec through to 28th Feb.
So if the aircraft is subbed to a A350-900 and it is full there will indeed be problems.
No doubt the unlucky passengers will be sent on the BA shuttle to LHR to connect with one of the CX departures

I've lost track of the Cathay A350 orders, they ordered 900s then upgraded some to 1000s then late last year downgraded 6 back to 900s and then deferred some deliveries. But I think Spanners is right in that they will be lucky to have 5 1000s in use by Dec 1st. Presumably having announced the 1000 on the MAN route must mean alterations elsewhere on the network yet to be published (?) If the 1000 is unavailable- with seats sold then I wouldn't be surprised to see a 777 sub on some services.

Thatís the outbound; thereís also the return on the 27th.

LAX_LHR 22nd May 2018 11:43

Yes but just wanted to quickly clarify as there had been mentioned it was going to LPL instead.

BHX5DME 22nd May 2018 12:02

there should be a A359 ex MAN and a 788 ex LPL

LAX_LHR 22nd May 2018 18:13

Looks like Jet2 are bringing Vienna back as a year round destination:

LS959 MAN 1510 VIE 1840 Wed

LS960 VIE 1805 MAN 1935 Fri
LS960 VIE 1815 MAN 1945 Mon
LS960 VIE 1925 MAN 2055 Wed

Not unusual in the industry to have an aircraft displayed but the bookable capacity capped to a lower level and only released closer to departure if the larger aircraft is staying or aircraft changed.

Amadeus showing Loganair as re-starting the MAN-GLA route up to 3 times daily from 1st September. Not on their website though.

surely they aren’t coming back to give it another go?

Personally it would be great, live in glasgow, Work in Manchester often and from the Hebrides so those clan Loganair points were great!! I thought it was odd they withdrew as they added direct from Stornoway, Kirkwall and Sumburgh and having one stop alternatives seemed like a good idea and would grow the route potentially (albeit can do via Inverness). They did come off all Eastern operated routes but this is now back to Flybe so maybe they donít feel the same obligation...

They've denied it.
