KQL is also in XMN as we speak. We'll find out up to which KQ* bird will get the new livery. KQR is a 77K with the old livery

I know that earlier KQ* birds will get a new paint livery. But later KQ* donít.
B-KQL will be painted in new livery and will be re-configured into 77K.

I suppose, let's wait 3 weeks and know what happens with KQL.

Also, CX870/879 usually served by a B77K, got B-KQW which is a 77A which has less Y-class seats. I also discovered ExpertFlyer is showing B77A on 870/879 on Friday as well.

How often do these switches occur? 870/879 is a Y-heavy route in my experience and usually 77H/77A is allocated to 872/873 instead

Well it's been painted in the new livery when it was a 77G but I wonder if Wifi is equipped or not

CX3402 - B-KQT went XMN today, the aircraft is being reconfigured into 77K (will not be painted in new livery because later KQ* series donít)

Yup since KQS and KQT and all others after weren't, I do not expect KQT to be painted either, but I do expect that it will get Wifi. Wow I was on KQT just 2 months ago on CX632 (MAA-HKG) when it was a B77G. The number of 77G are being reduced more rapidly than the 77H.

It is common for CX to use local airports for training eg. touch and go exercises. CRK and other airports are also used.

If B-HNQ is an ex-Emirates plane, I'm assuming it's a 77P and not a 73Z (10-abreast). Says the opposite on the doc just fyi.

EDIT: Oops... HNQ is the last original CX 773 my bad.

B-HNQ went XMN today as CX3304 to re-configure into 77P.

KQT returned as CX3367 on April 28. ExpertFlyer on the return from SYD to HKG indicated it is a 77K with the 10-across seat map.

I think this took less time because KQT was not repainted. The question is whether it's Wifi equipped or not but I guess it should be.

KQL is still in XMN so I would guess for sure it will be in the new livery.
