Yes, thats right. Was operated by 773 and the plane overnighted in PEN.
The flights were there even in the late eighties and nineties! I remember CX722/724 with tristars... they even threw in a 747 at times. I recall being in Subang in the early nineties one day and I saw many 'mamaks' like myself boarding a CX 747 and was amazed that there was such a large community in HKG. Then I saw the destination at the gate - Penang, not Hong Kong! There must have been local traffic rights at the time. Unless I was totally right the first time! Lol
Like most regional destinations, CX sent every aircraft type in their fleet to PEN, from 333s to 77Ws. The crew loved PEN flights dearly and it showed.
But back to the topic: tag-on flights aren't as lucrative as some think. There's a lot of added cost to it, and it loses its competitive edge because of the added stop.
I guess tag on flights could work if the destinations by themselves are unable to provide sufficient loads to justify non stop services.
