Also, isn't KPA one of the first 77W to be deleased? We know KPB, KPG, and KPJ are the first 3, CX said the 5 earliest 77W were planning to be phased out, and to my understanding I always thought it was B-KPA through B-KPE.
I think I saw the flickr photo of B-KPA in FRA. That photo I saw was taken on November 24th 2017. It should be in the new livery.

Yep! B-HLM to Cathay Dragon. Later on, B-HLN and B-HLT will experience what B-HLM is experiencing now!

Try adding filters when searching for B-KPA. I always do a filter of only starting on the day a 77W returns from XMN, that's how we discover new liveries, Wifi or just old livery and a Wifi.

How can I do that?

So there will only be 6 regional 333 left for CX? Good news for J pax with higher chances of getting LH J on regional routes.

I'm looking at the spreadsheet and some things haven't been updated to accuracy:

B-KQT, which is now a 77K has Wifi but old livery. A flickr photo shows this.

B-KPA is now a 77A.

One poster said the later KQ* birds might get repainted when they are 6-7 years old yet KPA is already over 10 years old and so is KPI.

I'll make these changes later today.

I think one of the issues is the large amount of inaccurate information that has been dropped in here recently, I recall making some changes to the doc that I had to completely undo.

Another is it's very tortured to sort through this thread given the spam-like posts. I admit I rarely click on this thread now, unless I notice the most recent post is yourself, Winnipegrev, or a few others. I can't speak for the other editors, but maybe they're ignoring this thread too.

​​It would be nice to find a solution that works for everyone. Maybe one thread that is strictly for confirmed changes to CX planes, and one for fleet rumors / speculation / hobbyist chatter?
etkuo, CXfanatic, henryc41 and 2 others like this.

Looks to me the "general" request to provide as much "new" info, so you can update the document, is the core of the problem. It attracts all kinds of good intending people, to provide information, etc.

You may want to consider changing the request, to let submitters "add" some proof of their statement(s), in the form of pictures, references, etc, before accepting the change/update and let it migrate into the document. I think, that largely would sift out incomplete or wrong information. And those who are serious submitters, know about the required proof and plan accordingly.

Keep up the good work !

True that. This thread totally lost control in the last little bit... Thankfully CX fleet size is not like the US Big3. Imagine how this thread will turn into...
