Cathay Pacific (CX) Cheapest Flight Deals Last modified: Oct 1, 2016 0:16 -04:00

A more exotic way of saying “Cathy” – think of this airline that way. Cathay Pacific is the flag carrier of Hong Kong, with its headquarters at Hong Kong International Airport. An American and an Australian who had become friends founded Cathay in Shanghai in 1946. At the time, they had one plane named “Betsy” in their possession. The airline prospered late into the 1960’s and was eventually bought by its arch-rival Hong Kong Airways before the 60’s said “sayonara.” Ah, the infancy of airline mergers.
