  1. Now I’m confused… The link you posted about CX says 3x’s weekly @ night is going away (CX808/807), but CX807 seem to be daily to me. They mention CX807 again below that saying it is the 4-class one staying:

    Cathay Pacific from 23MAR15 is reducing Hong Kong – Chicago service, as the airline ends 3 weekly CX808/807 night-time operation. The airline will continue to operate 7 weekly flights during daytime, with 4-class 777-300ER.

    CX806 HKG1155 – 1350ORD 77W D
    CX807 ORD1530 – 2020+1HKG 77W D

    Thoughts? We are on CX807 ORD1530 – 2020+1HKG 77W D. Is “CX808/807” going away a typeo on the ORD-HKG route?

    Quick search on shows CX807 for ORD-HKG showing up still.
