Actually i was expecting a new frequency to HKG maybe 3 times a week but they are just adding seat sending the B744 replacing the B773ER.

B77W has 14/56/44/186 seats for a total of 300 pax.

B744 has 2 config but if they are adding seat that means that they will send the ones with 52 business seats only that version has 14/52/36/227, for a total of 329, so overall they will have more seat but few less premium in club world and world traveller.

LAX will enjoy 609 seats more a week and HKG will have 406 seats.

When are the first BA380´s due for delivery?? i was expecting to see one of the flights to HKG with A380 for the summer season.

Anyway, now the question is where are they going to send this B77W and where are this B744 coming from.
