About

Cathay has ordered its first 777s on 6th May 1992.
Cathay was the launch customer of the 773 and also of the RR-powered 777.
The very-first built 777 was delivered to CX after major retrofit in December 2000. Until half a year earlier this Triple Seven was Boeing's prototype 777 and was extensively used for testing. Originally fitted with P&W engines, Boeing's engineers had to make the "new" #1 fit to fly with Rolls-Royce's Trent 800 engines.

In Summer 2006, Cathay has ordered the 77W for its longhaul network. The first 77W was delivered on 27th September 2007. During the celebrations for the first delivery CX's CEO Tony Tyler said: "We are delighted to receive our first Boeing 777-300ER, which marks the beginning of a new phase of expansion for Cathay Pacific ... These are superb aircraft that will form the backbone of our long-haul fleet in the coming years and enable us to strengthen our non-stop ultra-long-haul services, particularly to North America. They are very efficient aircraft, too, and we will see a big reduction in fuel burn, which is very important in these environmentally conscious times." (source: CX press release 1st Oct 07)

During the order "ceremony" for Cathay's commitment to 21 Boeing 777-9X, for delivery as of 2021 (to 2024)
Cathay Pacific Chief Executive John Slosar said: “Cathay Pacific is committed to modernising its fleet to provide a superior experience to passengers while at the same time as delivering cost benefits to the airline and reducing our impact on the environment. The 777-300ER has done a superb job for us – indeed, Cathay Pacific is now the second largest operator of this type – and we are delighted to be an early customer for this next generation of the aircraft". (source: CX press release 20th Dec 13)

The 777-9X promises us improved payload range capability and reduced operating costs, in addition to a significant reduction in environmental emissions. We think it will be an ideal fit for long-haul destinations in North America and Europe, in particular those routes where we carry high volumes of passengers and cargo each day.” (source: CX press release 20th Dec 13)

70th 777 (53rd and last 77W for CX) delivered to Cathay Pacific, 26 Sep 15
that has made Cathay Pacific Asia’s largest operator of the 777 fleet.

Cathay Pacific took delivery of its first 777-300ER in September 2007. This efficient aircraft allows the airline to modernise its long haul fleet with enhanced operational efficiency and extended range with more environmentally friendly features.

The 777s have played an important role in Cathay Pacific’s fleet modernization and network expansion strategy,” said Ivan Chu, Chief Executive, Cathay Pacific Airways. “We operate the largest 777 fleet in Asia, and these aircraft offer the range, reliability and flexibility for us to build multiple daily frequencies on trunk routes, both within the Asia-Pacific region and, with the 777-300ERs, on long-haul and ultra-long-haul routes. Our 777 fleet has helped in our efforts to reinforce Hong Kong’s position as one of the world’s most important international aviation hubs.” 

We have enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Cathay Pacific on the 777 program,” said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president, Northeast Asia Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “We are honored to celebrate the delivery of Cathay’s 70th 777 airplane, and will continue to extend the fruitful partnership over the years with our next generation 777X.” (copied from Cathay Pacific's press release)
