75% of CX flights now regional.

Looking at schedules, it seems CX are now becoming a regional player.

The recent application of all KA routes seem to confirm this. HK flag carrier days are over, that is too colonial.

There are only so many carriers allowed to service the world from the mainland and the reality is that HK is now a mainland city.

Maybe this is your chance KA, get back and petition them to rename CX as Dragon. Might finally get a twinkle back in your eye

Cathay is the new DragonAir, enjoy China in your new fleet of narrow bodies.
Now that puts a twinkle in my eye.

I’ll help you out here KABOY, from Reuters Jan 6th: Cathay “will operate about 20% of its pre-pandemic cargo capacity and around 2% of its pre-pandemic passenger flight capacity in January, it said in an emailed statement.”

Some healthy competition to keep ticket prices in check, and ever lower remuneration for staff.




Greater Bay Airlines given go-ahead to fly 104 regional routes, setting up rivalry with Hong Kong flagship carrier Cathay Pacific

https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/...y-104-regional

“Cathay’s passenger flight capacity in January was about 2.1 per cent of pre-pandemic levels, with cargo volume dropping to 21 per cent of capacity.”

Now they need to work our where the capacity will be.

They are no longer a flag carrier.

All that government money was piled in under the premise of job preservation and keeping HK an aviation hub. Then they decided to blow up KA and shed jobs after the money was deposited in their account.

Swire has conned China for a century, you don’t think they have grown tired of their antics?

Now they need to work out what they can hang on to.

Capitalism with "Asian" values ?? CX ( Merlin) and its cabal of neutered inept "directors" being schooled on China "business" practices while they spin in their boardroom chairs dishing out directives about Unconscious Bias !! Go woke go broke... Pathetic

104 routes with unlimited frequencies could be a killer. They won't be able to expand quick enough to make it a major problem while covid zero is around. Where will they even get crew willing to live in HK on a pittance?

Just by looking at Donghai Airlines and their delays to the 787 you can easily see that they cannot get their act together fast. Few years time would be another story...

But of those 104 routes, how many will they fly? GBA basically applied to fly anywhere within reach of Hong Kong and won’t be flying to many of them.

Even with two aircraft (has the second reached Hong Kong?) they are losing pilots back to CX so hardly a time for other airlines to be quaking in their boots.
