I noticed on the HKIA website that the Air New Zealand times seem to be jumping up and around a bit for this week, and hopped over to the NZ website to take a look. Noticed that aircraft was 744 - a change from the usual 763.
Any reason for the suddenly high demand?! CX already operate ten flights weekly AKL-HKG. Presumably it's something to do with the Chinese New Year but strange that friends say Y is pretty much booked solid through March, even with extra capacity!
Oh, also noticed that only J and Y are offered, no F although I suppose some lucky J class pax will get the F seating.
