AF To HKG: 77W Or A380?

Thu Nov 12, 2015 10:11 pm

I was looking at fares for CDG-HKG for next August.

On AF website, they say the flight is operated by a 77W, whereas KL website says that it is operated by an A380.

Also, I saw that KL uses 744Combi on that route: any hope for the 789 here?

Regards

AF uses both. 2 days a week 77W, others A380 agaik

KLM will not use the 789 to HKG in 2016

Definitely book flights on the days where the A380 is used, especially if you are planning to fly Y.
Upcoming flights:
April/May: AM MEX-SCL 788 (J), AM EZE-MEX 789 (J).

The CDG-HKG flight is operated by A380 or 77W?
Also, are the 77Ws used on that route in BEST configuration?

All AF 777's are 10 abreast, So choose the A380 if you can. (Presuming you are flying Y)
A319, A320, A321, A330-200, A350-900, A380, 737-700, 737-800, 777-200ER, 777-300, 777-300ER, 787-8, Q300, Q400

Like AF's flights to PVG(Shanghai), a combination of B77W/77B and A388, depends on the day of the week. The A388 is a good choice, personally.
