    Announced today, Cathay will over the next 3 months recommission the 100 aircraft that have been parked at the Alice Springs and Spanish facilities many for the past 2 years .

    One of the first a 7 year old 777ER flight CX3500 ex Alice Springs is about half way (and over the Philippines) on its way back to HK at the moment
    It seems that the Cathay management may have information that the Government has not publicly shared as this is a costly undertaking and there is no room for 100 more aircraft to be parked long term at the Hong Kong airport even if the airline were willing to fork out the huge cost that this would incur.

    If true cwoodward, HKIA must be delighted they do now have John Holland-Kaye running the show.

    I hope so much this is the case.

    I find very strange with raising cases but everything is still normal – it is like something is happening which we don’t know about.

    John Holland-Kaye wasn’t he the chap that at one time run LHR? – was he perhaps snapped up by WH Smith

    Check out CX’s YouTube page on reactivating their fleet. It’s about a 2-minute clip and discusses what they had to do and what they’re doing now.
