That will give them 4 extra frequencies to launch more BNE-HKG direct or to another Australian destination. Though now with Hong Kong Airlines on the CNS-HKG route (albeit only one way) CX may be struggling.
Unfortunately if the flights are decoupled the BNE frequency will need to be accounted for in the bi-lateral agreement. Because the flight stops in CNS, it is not counted as CNS is considered a regional airport.
So no expansion for CX unfortunately.
