Qantas will add another 'Airbus A380 day' onto the Sydney-Hong Kong route and boost the Brisbane-Los Angeles service to a daily Boeing 747-400 as part of a revamp of its international network.
From November 4 the superjumbo will appear on Monday's Sydney-Hong Kong (QF127/128) flights, in addition to its current roster of Thursday through Sunday – leaving only Tuesday and Wednesday flights on the older Boeing 747.
Today's commencement of shared Qantas/Emirates flights across the Tasman will also see some fine-tuning of the Red Roo's NZ schedule, with the morning Sydney-Christchurch service shifting to an evening timeslot while the rebound leg becomes a redeye that reaches Sydney at 8.30am.
Qantas says the move is designed to complement the existing Emirates service on that same route.
Also on the cards: a new seasonal direct service between Perth and Auckland from December 6 2013 to February 1 2014.
Here's the official Qantas cheat sheet on the changes.
