• Cathay used up all the allocated capacity for HK carriers to Australia.

  • Are award tickets eligible?

  • Good to see Accor expanding on the Gold Coast.I'd probably hold off staying until after the long overdue renovations.

  • Yes, UO is expanding rapidly and seems to be doing quite well. HX on the other hand doesn't really know what it is (like AB). It tends to carry mainlanders to leisure destinations, and could probably spare a daily frequency for VA. Their Chinese network ex-HKG should help a VA HKG flight be viable.

  • Well CX has used all the capacity for HK-based carriers to fly to SYD/MEL/BNE/PER. HNA could try using VA to fly to HKG instead, as AU-based carriers have plenty of capacity. HX has slots that it could share..
