    Hong Kong-based Dragon Airlines Limited, commonly known as Dragonair and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Asia’s largest international carrier Cathay Pacific Airways, will unveil brand new cabin products tomorrow, according to three people familiar with the matter.

    The airline will launch its new business class and economy class products, in addition to formally adopting a new flight attendant uniform whose trial has already been conducted over the past few months, Aspire Aviation‘s multiple sources at Cathay Pacific said.

    This latest move symbolises Cathay Pacific Group’s renewed regional focus as it aims to improve its profitability by pursuing smarter growth in the Greater China market where the export-oriented economy has shown green shoots of recovery with a rebound in purchasing managers’ indices, while trimming long-haul flight frequencies as well as replacing fuel-guzzling Boeing 747-400 aircraft with smaller, yet significantly more fuel efficient Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

    Replacing the ageing jumbo jet with 777-300ERs which burn 22% less fuel per payload tonne will lead to a 1.6% reduction in passenger capacity, measured in available seat kilometres (ASKs) in 2013 whereas cargo capacity will surge by 11.9%, the airline said earlier this year.
