Cathay Pacific currently operates its B777-300ER aircraft to both Boston and Vancouver. However, the Oneworld member will begin deploying its brand-new A350-900 on the Hong Kong–Vancouver route next year.
The Airbus aircraft will serve the three new return weekly frequencies on flights CX856 and CX855. It sports a three-class configuration, with 38 seats in business (1-2-1), 28 in premium economy (2-4-2) and 214 in economy (3-3-3). For a detailed first look, see here.
“We are fully committed to the North America market and are pleased to strengthen our services to Boston and Vancouver to meet ongoing business and leisure travel demand,” said Cathay Pacific’s chief executive Ivan Chu.
“Our A350 aircraft has received excellent customer feedback and we are excited to offer this great product on our additional Vancouver service next year.”
