In 1975 Cathay Pacific received the first of twenty Lockheed L1011 Tristars that were to operate within the fleet over the next two decades. The last commercial flight of a Cathay Tristar was made by VR-HHY on Tuesday 15 October 1996 on the Nagoya - Taipei - Hong Kong route. David travelled to Nagoya to record the event for Cathay. The actual final flight was made over Hong Kong harbour for staff that evening and included a low level pass down the harbour. David was a guest of Cathay on that historic flight.

Cathay took delivery of its first Boeing 747-267B, VR-HKG, on 20 July 1979 at Boeings plant at Everett, Washington. Cathay's B747 was the launch customer for the Rolls-Royce RB211-524B2 engines which allowed for ultra long-range operations. Cathay went on to operate a total of eight B747-267B aircraft, which were eventually phased out in 1998. One of the aircraft was converted to a freighter in 1`992 and was still with the airline in 2005.

On 26 September 1988, Cathay Pacific took delivery of the first of 19 Boeing 747-467 passenger aircraft (VR-HOO) that were to join the fleet between 1988 and 1995. Powered by the Rolls-Royce RB-211-524G/H engines, these aircraft formed the backbone of the airline's long haul fleet and pioneered many ultra long-haul flights, between Asia and North America and Europe. A further six B747-467F aircraft operate in the Cathay Cargo fleet.

Cathay Pacific was one of the launch customers for the Boeing 777 and several of the Cathay aircraft formed part of the test and ETOPS programmes. The first B777-267 aircraft, VR-HND, joined the Cathay fleet on 11 May 1996 and five of these aircraft are now in the fleet. The first of the B777-367 aircraft joined the fleet in May 1998, which now includes 11 of this model in 2005.

On Friday 14 October 1994, an Airbus Industries A330 (registered F-WWKU - which became VR-HLA), wearing full Cathay livery made a low level demostration pass down the centreline of Runway 13 at Kai Tak, went around and then landed. However, the first A330 to join the fleet was actually VR-HLB, delivered on 24 February 1995. In 1994, Cathay sub-leased four A340 aircraft from Airbus, the first of which, VR-HMR, was delivered on 26 October 1994. These aircraft were a stop-gap, until the airline's own A340's started being delivered in 1996. By early 2006 Cathay's Airbus fleet had grown to twenty-six A330's and fifteen A340's, with more on order.
