On September 19 and 23 there will be 2 El Al pax A/C at HKG, a 777 and 762.
Since they are arriving and departing within an hour and a half of each other I am sure there will be opportunities to see the two a/c at the gates at the same time.
TLV 22:25 HKG 14:15 0 YES LY 075 NO FCY 777
TLV 23:35 HKG 15:25 0 YES LY 077 NO CY 762
HKG 21:55 TLV 04:00 0 YES LY 076 NO FCY 777
HKG 23:25 TLV 05:30 0 YES LY 078 NO CY 762
I hope someone will be able to get us a pic. I will try, since I am on flights 75/76.

Its before the holidays in Israel, and their is the HK Jewelry and Watch Fair. Since MAny Israelis Exhibit and Buy, The demand was very high. Flight 75 has been booked for over 6 months in all three classes with over 200 ppl on witlist. There was at one point 80 wait listed on Business Class. Even after they added the second flight, it is not enough.
They were probably not able to get a larger a/c because of the high loads on the NYC flights.
