Qantas will once again roster its flagship Airbus A380 on flights to Hong Kong over the 2015-2016 Christmas/New Year period, in addition to the new four-times-weekly Airbus A330 service which takes flight from October 26.
A spokeperson for the airline confirmed the upgrade from the Boeing 747 jumbo to the double-decker A380 superjumbo would run as previously planned, resulting in a wave of extra seats on the Sydney-Hong Kong route.
From 10 December 2015 to 20 January 2016 the A380 will take over QF127/128 on Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with the jumbo still plying the route on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
What's more, from 21 January to 16 February 2016 the A380 will run daily to Hong Kong route to help handle the Chinese New Year surge centred around February 8, with the Boeing 747 returning to the schedule from February 17.
Our tip for top-tier Qantas Platinum and Platinum One frequent flyers headed to Hong Kong? Book into business class on any of the 'A380 days' and there's a good chance you'l be bumped into the superjumbo's first class suites.
You'll still be served the same meals and wine from the business class menu, but any chance to fly in Qantas' great first class is worth grabbing.
Running parallel to QF127/128 from October 26 will be the new QF117/118 Airbus A330 service on Mondays through Thursday.
There's clearly plenty of business between Sydney and Hong Kong, with Cathay Pacific adding a second Boeing 777 onto the route from October 1 to cater for increased demand, especially for onwards flights to Europe.
The Boeing 777-300ER will slot into Cathay's daily CX100/101 service, replacing the current Airbus A330.
The airline last year also upgraded its CX138/139 service from an A330 to a Boeing 777-300ER.
However there are no plans for Virgin Atlantic to restart Sydney-Hong Kong flights which the airline axed in May 2014, citing "increasing costs and a challenging economic environment."
