Qantas is upgrading flights between Sydney and Hong Kong from this week with an Airbus A380 replacing the older Boeing 747 on the Monday service between the two cities.
Travellers will now be able to enjoy the airline's flagship superjumbo on the daily QF127/128 service from Thursdays to Mondays inclusive, with the Boeing 747 reduced to only the Tuesday and Wednesday flights.
And things will get even better next year, as Australian Business Traveller reported last month, with the daily Sydney-Hong Kong flight running an A380 every day from Thursday January 2 through to Monday March 3, 2014.
From March 4, the schedule will revert to an A380 from Thursday to Monday and the Boeing 747 on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Also in March next year, Qantas will open its new lounge at Hong Kong International Airport.
The Qantas Hong Kong Lounge will be a single-class lounge for all business class and first class passengers (along with Qantas Gold and Platinum-grade frequent flyers and their oneworld card-holding equivalents), modelled along the same lines as with the Qantas Singapore Lounge.
