No idea. I don't know why you would wait though. I certainly agree that HKG is an excellent stopover. You can, however, travel with CX (a first class carrier) already and stopover via HKG.

I've flown all 3 carriers on the route (in J) and thought VA was easily the best of the 3 because the food and service were much better than the other 2.

I agree. I do think VA’s The Business is one of the best hard product in the sky.

Fingers crossed for a VA syd-hkg service, to tie-up with V.Atlantic onto the UK soon.

VA are only on this route because part-owner HNA group can't fly this route on their own (through HX) due to the bilaterals on the HKG end being full. It is basically a VA/HX JV.

Just to add my 2 cents regarding Syd-HKG VA service. I spoke to a lady at VA few days ago and asked her about it. She had no clue, she said they haven't heard anything in the office, there's been no discussions either.
So in my opinion, that service is some time away yet.
