  1. Just little correction. If CX landing at Riyadh airport at 22:45, how is possible to take off at 22:25.
    Maybe Alladeen carpet can help to over taking time?. Cathy Pacific is serious airline. Hoppe to be printing in lighting speed. Fast fingers, slow down.
    All the best to people in aviation.
