He joined the Cathay Pacific fleet in 2000. Officially, the aircraft was withdrawn from commercial service after 18 years, in May 2018. In all its activity at Cathay Pacific, the Boeing 777-200 (B-HNL) aircraft operated 20.519 flights, recording 49.687 flight hours.
In the 1990 years, Cathay Pacific was one of the few airlines that contributed to the development of the Boeing 777. At the moment, Cathay Pacific operates one of the largest fleet of triple seven aircraft, over 65 copies of the 777-200, 777-300 and 777-300ER models.
In the near future, Cathay Pacific will drop all 777-200 aircraft, and from 2012 will begin receiving new Boeing 777-9, 21 number aircraft.
