Qantas: HKG-SYD To Go Double Daily

Sun Nov 03, 2002 4:27 pm

Not sure if this was posted sometime ago but I am sure many of you are aware of this.

HKG-SYD will go double daily from 11/24/2002 onwards.

Sydney- Hong Kong:
QF 187: Departs Sydney at 10:20 am and arrives Hong Kong at 5:05 am
QF 127: Departs Sydney at 12:00 pm and arrives Hong Kong at 5:45 pm

Hong Kong-Sydney:
QF 188: 8:45 am (Departs HK)- 8:50 pm (Arrives Sydney)
QF 128: 8:45 pm (Departs HK)- 8:35pm (Arrives Sydney)

The above time-table is valid until 29/3/2003.

Um, so which one is the correct time? QF 187 depart at 10.20pm, arrive at 5.05 am, right? Why do I have a feeling that it won't be very popular?????

Well, at least not with the families in economy, flying back to Hong Kong over the holidays........ Arriving in Hong Kong so early would be a killer.....

By the way, so there only used to be 3 flights from SYD to HKG? 2 by CX, and 1 by QF? I'm suprised, I thought it would have more than that, since Sydeney is supposed to have a larger number of Hong Kong immigrants than Auckland, and we already get 3 daily flights here (almost)........

Anyone think by next summer, we'll see an A330 on this route?

United Airline, your info is not correct at all I'm afriad.

QF actually went double daily ages ago. On 31st March 2002 QF added 3 flights a week on Monday, Tuesday, Saturday QF187, making 15 flights a week.

The actual info is starting from 23rd on Nov, there will be changes to the QF scheldue.

23rd November - 29 November, 18 flights per week. 23rd November (SAT) with 4 flights a day.

30th November - 6th December, 20 flights per week.

7th December - 14th December, 21 flights per week. Most days with 3 daily flights.

And then it goes on with the 21 day a week scheldue.

Best Regards

What I mean is.........10:20pm.

9V-SPK, you sure?

Trvlr, maybe. But I certainly hope that they will still fly the B 767 on International routes.

United Airline I'm sure. May I ask where did you get your info from or is it that you thought QF will start double daily serviceds? Because QF started offering 14 flights a week for ages and you post that QF will go double daily on this route, I was wondering what's your main point.

Best Regards

Got a pamphlet which stated that QF's flights between HKG and SYD will go double daily soon. A misleading pamphlet I must say.......  Smile

Anyway I wasn't very sure whether or not they were offering double daily service. Sorry folks!  Smile

UA, you are in fact correct. The 5 times a week QFA187 will be increased to daily, which in addition to QFA127, will make double daily SYD-HKG non-stops.
9V-SPK seems to be jumping the gun to have a go at you, I believe he is referring to multi stop services, not non-stops.
Combinations of flights are offered from Sydney to Hong Kong:
QF127 Sydney 1200 Hong Kong 1745 744 Non-stop
QF187 Sydney 2220 Hong Kong 0505+1 763 Non-stop
QF85 Sydney 1035 Hong Kong 1845 763 Stops in Brisbane
(Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday)
QF83 Sydney 2125 Hong Kong 0600+1 763 Stops in Melbourne

AJ, he's correct if he was meaning non-stop flights but he didn't point it out specificly, after all he only listed the 2 HKG - SYD flights but left out the other flights so that made me curious.

United Airline, if you mean non-stop flights to SYD then yes that's what just like AJ said. Sorry if I confused you.

Best Regards
