Why CX buy 2nd hand SIA stuff

Why would CX (and KA) always buy second-hand aircrafts (CX: A340-313X; KA: 744 BCF) which Singapore Airlines disposed of? Does that make Cathay a lower-class airline? Or is it an illusion that top carriers only use 1st hand aircraft, direct from factory/via leasing companys?
