If this comes off, do you think they will do an all Virgin Kangaroo route with Virgin Atlantic?

I doubt it. Given HNA is a key shareholder of VA, I image the idea would be to time the VA HKG flight to connect with HK Airline flights to Mainland China and maybe other Asian ports.

We suspect the flight to Hong Kong will arrive mid-morning for connections into mainland China, although of course there'd be nothing to stop you from have a day in Hong Kong and then hopping onto the Virgin Atlantic service to London. But the Virgin Australia service shouldn't really be seen as a Kangaroo Route play of any sort.

Virgin Atlantic pulled the plug on HKG-SYD because it wasn't financially viable to run that leg of LHR-HKG-SYD. Don't know that that will have changed (although VA does have a habit of running loss-making international routes).
