SYD <-> HKG flights were gone on 20/Mar. A misfire? Although, HKG <-> MEL flights are still there.
Okay I have no idea about what's happening -- maybe the whole thing is a joke. Now there is a new flight from MEL to HKG (as of 19/Mar), along with VA87:
Virgin Australia 89
Yes, they are there. Search for "SYD to HKG" on Google and you'll have it.
Virgin Australia 80
(love this one -- I can walk out my office on Friday and get to PEK before lunch on Sat)
Virgin Australia 82
(for the daywalkers)
And for returning -- love this one too : I can get back into the Office before Monday morning tea.
Virgin Australia 81
(There's no VA 83??? Is the aircraft that should be VA83 flying into a city in China and then back in SYD?)
It is not cord sharing. It is not Virgin Atlantic. It is VA -- or is it?
BTW, VOZ80/81/82 are already on Flightaware -- operated by using an A330-200. (screen capture attached)
BTW2, MEL <-> HKG flights have been shown on google since 15/Mar

There's a curfew problem with VA80!

It does seem a bit weird... not sure if it's a glitch. It's on FlightAware for take-off tomorrow and Wednesday (i.e. in 4hrs)...
Yes... VA's website still provides no direct flights to hkg for booking. Hard to tell what's happening since the information is too detailed to be a glitch.

VA also only has 7 flights/week to HKG from IASC. Either VA80 or 82 can't happen.

It might be a practice run flight.. fully crewed but no passengers.

If you search MEL to HKG on google, VA86 and VA87 also come up but nothing on the return.
I'm 100% sure that the MEL <-> HKG VAs were not there until yesterday. Hope they're real...I've updated the title. Thanks.
