Virgin Atlantic will be increasing flights to Hong Kong from Dec 4th with the launch of a second daily nonstop service. This new flight will be flown also using an Airbus A 340-600 and will be a terminator flight as the current one extends onwards to Sydney. VS has been wanting for two years to increase HKG as ever since it launched SYD via HKG, its capacity to the ex British colonial city has suffered greatly.
The new flight timings are as follows:
Dep LHR 1600 Arr HKG 1230+1
Dep HKG 1415 Arr LHR 1920
Expect VS to suspend VS 25/26 which is flown to JFK as it is supposedly the most poorly performing flight for the airline on this popular route. The aircraft of this route will then be used for the 2nd daily flight to HKG from LHR.
