Cathay 777X

Just wandering what the 21 777X's that CX have ordered would be used for? Are they predominantly for the replacement of older 777-300ER's (when its 2020) or are they a new route opener and where would those new routes be?

I'd see them as replacements for the 300ERs to premium heavy long haul routes like London/Paris/Frankfurt. The A350-9s will be more likely put onto routes a little too small for the 777, like Madrid and Dusseldorf (Brisbane and Perth might play in too). The 350-10s I could definitely see on the Sydney and Melbourne routes.
