Cathay Pacific to Increase Non-Stop Flights Between San Francisco and Hong Kong

Cathay Pacific will add four additional non-stop flights between San Francisco and Hong Kong, using the new Airbus A350-900, featuring a refreshed Business Class cabin, new Premium Economy Class and Economy Class seats.

This will be Cathay Pacific’s first A350 deployed to the USA and second in North America. The additional frequencies will provide more flight options for US-business travellers and will connect Hong Kong to the United States through San Francisco as a gateway.

From October 29, 2017, flight CX893 will expand from a three-times-weekly service, using a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, to a daily A350 service, bringing the total number of San Francisco to Hong Kong departures to three per day, 21 weekly, while CX879 and CX873 will continue to be operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. Cathay Pacific will now offer more non-stop flights from San Francisco to Hong Kong than any other airline.

This early morning arrival will allow passengers to connect with Cathay Pacific flights across Asia, including Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, and China, without a lengthy layover in Hong Kong.

The return flight, CX892, will depart Hong Kong at 5:55 pm on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, and will arrive in San Francisco at 1:55 pm, while on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, the flight departs Hong Kong at 6:45 pm to arrive in San Francisco at 2:45 pm.

Alongside a fully-flat bed, new features in the A350-900 Business Class include extra storage space within easy reach and personal service offered by a “do not disturb” and “wake-up call” function in the entertainment system.

The six-way headrest in Economy Class is a proprietary design that provides better support and enhances sleeping comfort.

The new A350-900 inflight entertainment system, with an interactive user interface equipped with notable new interactive features, broadens inflight entertainment options along with a wider screen in all classes.
