Cathay Pacific Airways, Boeing

Cathay Pacific Airways finally has decided to phase out its Boeing 777-200s, rationalizing its 777 fleet around the -300 and -300ER while cutting capacity. It has been considering the future of its -200s for some time, as its fleet is built around the A330-300 for regional flying and the 777-300 for heavy trunk routes. It will attempt to sell the aircraft. CEO Tony Tyler told staff in a newsletter that the airline has been formulating an "overhaul" of its operating plan. It will not renew leases next June on two A330-300s used by Dragonair. Nov 4, 2008
