VS Going To Start 2nd Daily LHR-HKG?

Fri Jul 20, 2007 3:08 pm

Read on a local newspaper that VS is going to start its 2nd daily flight to HKG.

Is this still valid? Thought this was put on hold.

Answer is in this thread
RE: VS's Proposed 2nd Daily LHR-HKG Flight (by Qantas744ER Apr 30 2007 in Civil Aviation)

Seems to be a combination of lack of LHR slots, lack of aircraft, lack of suitable aircraft, and the fact that NZ entered the route so there might already be over capacity. Also suggesting that maybe VS is waiting for DJ to start long-haul.
