Default How Many Special Liveries?

I'm flying Cathay Pacific this May from Newark to Denpasar, Bali. I was wondering if there is a list published somewhere that shows how many of each aircraft type are painted in regular livery vs special livery.
It's a 777-300ER (77w?) from EWR to HKG and then a 777-300 (773?) from HKG to DPS. And it's the same in reverse for the trip home.

I'm hoping for the "Asia's World City" livery but the first leg is a night flight so I may not get a good look at it.
Thanks!

flightradar24 has details of the actual plane you'll be flying... if that's any help. cathay pacific has a large fleet... but if you're really interested, you could check flightradar24's database as well. not sure if there's an easier way, though...

I go on FR24 everyday, sometimes they will tweet things about liveries and stuff like that.

CX currently only has one 77W in a special livery, B-KPB (Spirit Of Hong Kong). B-KPF (Asia's World City) was repainted into the standard CX livery last year.

Ok. That answers that question... I won't be expecting a special livery then. Thanks!

that doesn't your flight experience won't be any less special, though!

Yup! I'm excited to experience CX in a long haul flight and a regional flight... Hopefully the 773 for the 4h45m flight from HKG to DPS won't have the shellback seats, which I've heard are awful.

Well, its okay... I'm sure now that fuel prices have dropped (at least in the US) they'll start increasing legroom again.

The regional 773 fleet doesn't have any aircraft fitted with the old shell seats. Unless your aircraft gets subbed for an A333 than you will be getting the really old Y seat which is actually very comfortable. The only drawback is the old IFE system.

That's a relief. I'm kind of hoping it will get switched out for an A330 because that will be cool and different. I've only ever flown on A330s with Aer Lingus.

And yes, Bali should be really cool. We're looking forward to it

I'm not sure about Bali, but equipment swaps on CX shorter regional flights are extremely common so you might just be in luck.
