AO Drops TPE, Cuts HKG. AC A340 Back To SYD.

Wed Apr 23, 2003 7:00 pm

Australian announced today they are suspending all flights between CNS-TPE from 07 May to 30 Jun and will review the route over that time. AO also cutting CNS-HKG back from 3 per week to once weekly between 29 Apr and 27 May, again with reviews. "NO decision to redeploy capacity to other destinations" according to the ubiquitous "spokesperson".

AC (Australian GM, Jeannie Foster) also announced today that they are bringing the A340 back onto the YVR-SYD route effective "some time in June".

Cheers.

At a time when there has been musings on these forums about the "profitability" and future of AO, the dropping of services to TPE and reduction to HKG surely will not make things look good for the airline.

What is the weekly schedule for AO looking like now on other routes? Surely it can't be profitable for them to have these 767s just sitting around?
