CX Routes with First Class?

Is there any way to search what routes have first class seats? I understand most of the non-Asian destinations have FC. I'm looking to see what's available in Asia? Thanks.

For most short haul routes it varies by destination, and flight - and can be dependant upon aircraft type etc.

F can be found to places such as PEK, TPE, MNL, BKK, SIN etc. but not necessarily on a regular basis or regular flight. But one of the only destinations where I know it is guaranteed F is Tokyo/HND.

You can check this list is for the long haul routes operated by 77H.

Some other aircrafts also have FC seats. However, CX may not necessarily sell FC seats as F. They are likely sold as J for short hauls.

Yes. But it looks like OP's trying to burn some mileage to experience F. So to avoid dissappoiment and last min equip swaps, best not to go that route. Can't go wrong with NA or Europe destinations.

Tokyo Haneda should always have F service as they use 77H and 744 for the two flights...of course subject to equipment swap. Speaking of which, yy friend got his HND flight swapped from a 744 to 773 the other week (due to tech issue of 744)....

I think for CX Asia route only HND and PEK has guaranteed F nowadays? (Even KA can't guarantee F to PEK for every flight they said there's F...)

Sorry, missed that part. In that case HND probably the only option.

Somehow I got F on HKG to TPE. Same airplane as the one I flew from LA to Hong Kong on.

You can also get F on 77 from TPE to Tokyo (I guess you can go to HKG TPE Tokyo)

Referencing to schedule PDF listed on http://www.cathaypacific.com/cx/en_H...timetable.html (less last minute substitute)

For HKG-TPE, there are only limited flight with scheduled F

Then TPE-NRT flight it is scheduled to flown with 777 and only Biz and Econ available (page 427)

The Haneda flight is basically the only regional flight with consistent F availability (and not as abused with last minute sub)

YMMV

In North America. YVR (CX888/889), JFK (select flights) & I believe LAX / SFO also have F cabins.
