 Cathay Williams, Female Buffalo Soldier- With Documents
William Cathay, the new recurit, was declared "fit for duty", thus giving assurance of her place in history as the only documented female Buffalo Soldier, and as the only documented African-American woman who served in the U.S. army prior to the 1948 law, which officially allowed women to join the army.
At the time of Cathay Williams' impressment by Colonel Benton of the 13th Army Corps, the Emancipation Proclamation had not been made by President Lincoln and there was no clear federal policy as to the disposition of slaves freed by the army, and slaves abandoned by their slavemasters.
There was wide room for Cathay Williams' pension case to be disputed as the initial lack of effort and the delayed activism on the part of her lawyers certainly would be grounds for legal malpractice.

 Cathay To Apply For China Cargo Flights
Cathay Pacific Airways said Tuesday it will apply to fly cargo planes to the Chinese capital Beijing, another step in its efforts to tap one of the world's fastest growing aviation markets.
Cathay's first passenger flight to mainland China in 13 years will arrive in Beijing on Tuesday after the Hong Kong-based carrier gained final approval for three round trips a week to the city from the Chinese government in October.
Cathay reported its biggest ever loss in the first six months of this year as SARS scared away passengers and forced the carrier to offer steep discounts but Hughes-Hallett said he was "hoping" that the carrier would turn a full-year profit.

 Cathay Pacific Returns To China
While Cathay has high hopes for its return to the world's fastest growing aviation market, its access is limited to three round trips to the Chinese capital a week, and industry watchers said it could be years before the carrier generates significant profit from its mainland flights.
Cathay, which last week secured rights to fly the lucrative London-New York route, will also be able to sell tickets throughout China, opening up a new revenue source.
Talks between the Hong Kong and mainland governments on Cathay's application to fly to Shanghai and the southeastern city of Xiamen are tipped to begin in January and analysts say the routes could be up and running by the end of 2004.

 Cathay Pacific Makes H1 Profit
Cathay made a net profit of HKD$1.77 billion (USD$226.9 million) in the first six months of 2004, compared with a record net loss of HKD$1.24 billion (USD$159 million) in the year-ago period when a SARS outbreak emptied planes and forced the airline to cut over half its flights.
Cathay Pacific, among the worst hit airlines during last year's SARS outbreak, said it had benefited from a recovering Hong Kong economy, a sharp rebound in business and leisure traffic and currency gains from a weaker US dollar, but profits lagged market forecasts and Cathay's shares fell over 5 percent.
Cathay, like many other airlines, added surcharges to passenger tickets in May. Last week, it applied to extend and increase the surcharges of USD$5 on short-haul routes and USD$14 on long haul routes but said such levies only partly offset the extra fuel costs.

Cathay stock rose 6.5 percent in 2002, outperforming an 18.2 percent drop in the Hang Seng Index and a 7.3 percent fall in Singapore Airlines.

But Cathay told CNN in July that it was conducting market research about flying into China again, after Dragonair won the right to fly to Taiwan.
Cathay has said it believes increased business from passengers to and from China will be essential in offsetting any declines if China and Taiwan approve direct flights.
Cathay is one of the main beneficiaries from the political tensions between China and Taiwan, with all passengers between the two required to fly indirectly, typically via Hong Kong or Macau.

Cathay retracted a 10.5 percent pay rise offer after the pilots union failed to accept it by a midnight deadline on Saturday.
Cathay said it would not return to the negotiating table while the threat of industrial action remained, but the union accused Cathay of holding back vital information during talks.
The rejection of the airline's offer by the union means that Cathay's 700 most senior pilots face a three percent pay cut from Sunday, the last instalment of cuts agreed to end the 1999 dispute.

The deal was unveiled shortly after Cathay revealed plans to expand in China, adding flights that were recently approved by regulators — but not as many as it had been seeking.
Cathay said Tuesday it plans to start operating daily flights to Beijing — up from the current three a week — in December as part of a new aviation pact that Hong Kong and China signed last month.
The arrangement left Cathay frustrated that it will be shut out of the key Hong Kong-Shanghai passenger route — a big moneymaker because of heavy business travel — for at least two years.
