The new flights will depart San Francisco International Airport on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday at 1:30 a.m. local time, arriving at Hong Kong International Airport the following day at 6:40 a.m.

The early morning arrival is designed to facilitate connections with Cathay Pacific flights to a variety of destinations including Bangkok, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore as well as 22 cities in China.

The return flights will depart Hong Kong at 6:45 p.m. local time on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and arrive in San Francisco at 4:30 p.m. the same day.

Cathay will operate the flights with Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. Cathay Pacific’s 777-300ERs are outfitted with six open suites in first class, 53 lie-flat seats in business class, 34 seats in premium economy, and 182 seats in economy class.  Seats in first class are 36” wide, and have a pitch of 81”.
