Second Sydney for 777

Cathay Pacific adds second Boeing 777 onto Sydney-Hong Kong - Australian Business Traveller

Cathay Pacific will add a second Boeing 777 onto the Sydney-Hong Kong route from October 1 to cater for increased demand, especially for onwards flights to Europe

Crews???? I hear this flight is often changed back to a A330 due to crew shortage.

Next the Sydney over staffed (CN) freighter crews will be given 777 courses

So will it stay 777 or will it go back to all Airbus when the 350's start arriving?
I suspect SYD on the 77W has nothing to do with performance vs A330 and all to do with the ability to lift more pax/cargo, therefore I doubt it will go A350.

My previous comment may hold more truth than I expected, the freighter base may be shut down once the 777 takes hold in Sydney and Melbourne, it will easily cover the freight task.

Maybe not the -900, but the -1000 will have roughly the capacity of a 77W, and could uplift roughly the same load.

Although since those will be more economical to operate long haul than the triple, they'll probably stick to long haul stuff and let the tractors do some shorter stuff.

I can see the 77W going long term to SYD, and probably picking up a couple more OZ flights too.

Now all they have left to do is 'convince' the CAD it's 'safe' to do 2 man crew to Dingoland across the night.

The freighter base may close but it won't be because of the 777. Most of the freight carried in and out of the country won't fit in the 777 hold.

Enjoy that two pilot operation at 0.84 - 0.85 IMN boys (but if it's any comfort it's all ahead of the Bus drivers on the A350).

More like they will schedule it 5 min short of the maximum, like DXB. That costs no fuel.
