Speaking with a NZ FA
in April he said that the NZ HKG
flights were consistently going out with with 70 - 100 seats empty in Y. I'd assume that things have picked up for the Summer. Also, NZ
has been the cheapest airline to fly on the route over the last few months, in some instances cheaper than Oasis' flight HKG
is advertising a HK
$3750 fare return LHR
Of course less than stellar Y loads or yields don't necessarily mean the route is under performing but it does show how intense the HKG
-LON competition has become with 5 airlines flying nonstop with a total of 11 flights each day, most on 744s.
