QF re-enters the Beijing market from Jan 9 2006 - with a 3-times weekly service from Sydney. The press release is a bit vague on whether this is a non-stop service or not although it was reported on travelbiz.com.au that it would be a non-stop.

The aircraft used will be the two-class A330-300. No further schedule information is available.

It's good that QF is taking China seriously again.

Quoting HKGKaiTak (Thread starter):

My guess is that they will run it will operate to similar timings to the current SYD-PVG service..

"The new Beijing services are timed to suit customers connecting to and from Australian cities and New Zealand."

What WOULD be a winner in IMO would be an overnight services ex-SYD, arriving in PEK in the morning. But then again, QF rarely do anything innovative with their schedule, so I doubt it.

My guess:
SYD 10:05
PEK 19:35
PEK 21:50
SYD 09:15+1

OK so the schedule is pretty much as per MU, CA, CZ etc . . . so absolutely not innovative . . . I do agree though that QF should try something different.

That doesn't look right.
get's in at 1910 and departs 1805??

is 1805 meant to read 2105 or 2205 perhaps??

The problem is that the SYD curfew makes it difficult to operate the return sector.
IMO, the service should have been MEL-PEK to take advantage of the curfew free operations.

aND YOU'RE RIGHT... there is no differentiation in timing compared to the Chinese carriers:

*T****S 11:20a SYD 1 7:40p PVG MU 566 Non-stop 340 10:20
*T*T**S 10:05a SYD 1 6:35p PVG QF 129 Non-stop 333 10:30

Really wish Air China could introduce SYD-PEK or MEL-PEK non-stop service instead of having to go through PVG or CAN.

Cheers.

ITs about time QF got in on the action. Australia-China business links have resulted in huge numbers of people traveling back and forth between these two countries. Hence the large number of PRC carriers at SYD. I predict, that over time, the service will be upgraded to 744 or to daily 333. Demand shoudl be sufficient.

Their management doesn't think it can be sustained year-round, and they also don't have the right size equipment with the range to do it.

The B772 is 345 seats, so the extra PVG or CAN uplift comes in handy.
On the other hand their B763 would struggle wish range, and would have to take a payload hit.

Having said that, CA plans to delink MEL on its PEK-PVG-MEL-SYD-PVG-PEK service later this year.

Plans are to operate using a B762 on PEK-PVG-MEL VV routing.
They also plan for an overnight service both ways. something along the lines of...

PVG 23.00
MEL 11.00

MEL 23.00
PVG 07.30+1

GOOD MOVE IMO!

Am I mistaken that Qantas' A330 are not even the X-type after all? So presumably the flights will be operated with some very .... very severe payload restriction, won't they? The great circle map indicates that SYD-PEK is over 5500 miles each way.

Exactly the first thing I thought. Thats A Huge push for a 333. 5552 Seems more suitable for a 743. Anybody got any explanations?

SYD-PEK is an extremely long way for a 333, but its north-south with not much in the way of winds.

Can someone PLEASE re-confirm timing of this service??

With regards to the distance, is QF planning to stop in BNE or CNS perhaps??

Timings are as follows:
QF 191 SYD/PEK DEP 1050 ARR 1910 DAYS 1,3,5
QF 192 PEK/SYD DEP 2030 ARR 1105+1 DAYS 1,3,5

A long haul indeed for 333 !!

When the 4th Shanghai flight starts, plus these flights it will be daily to China, with the mid to long term plan of both cities being daily (2007).

QF didn't go down the path of discounting their SYD-PVG service to the Chinese VFR market here in Oz, and they've always priced the service at a premium over the Chinese carriers. I wonder what pricing strategies they'll use for the PEK service.

(I find it interesting QF is teaming up with BA and SK in marketing quite good value Oz-Europe airfares via PVG - they must have excess capacity on this route - then why did they not promote to the local Chinese?)
