Out of sheer interest. What would be the best way from HKG to ASP or ALH? Try using airline comfort (hint:Cathay new configs!), effectiveness (no 5-day lugging baggages around here) and arriving and departing at reasonable times (keep departure time after 8am and arrival time at ALH or ASP sometime before 4pm). Unlikely for me to visit any of these wonderful places, but I just want to see what people think of airline comfort revolving around my home city HK and Australia.

Eg. QF 128 HKG - SYD A380-800 19:45 - 08:10, QF 790 SYD - ASP 09:50 - 11:30. But I'm sure there are better options.

I'm quite sure of the flights that go to Sydney, but since I'm not Aussie, I can't find my way around Australia.

Oh, I forgot ASP.

HKG-CNS-TSV-MKY-ROK-GLT-BNE-CBR-MEL-SYD-ASP-SYD-MEL-ADL-PER-SYD-SIN-BKK-HKG.

Might as well have a nice mix of CX and QF.

It works a few days a week but the connections MAY OR MAY NOT WORK to your advantage: CX 173 HKG TO ADL NOT SURE OF THE Timings but gives an excellent connection to QF723 ADL-ASP.

 

As for Albany not sure about that sorry
