Default China Southern to fly A380s to Sydney

Quote:
Asia's largest airline, China Southern, is about to increase pressure on Qantas and its new bedfellow Emirates by flying its flagship A380 superjumbos on routes to Australia.

In a sign of the importance it places on the Australian market, China Southern plans to fly A380s between Sydney and its base in Guangzhou, China's third-largest city, in the second half of this year.

Bugger!

That'll explain the plethora of minor time changes of had for my flights in May and June!

Disappointed. My understanding is this sees a significant decrease in product quality also.

Cheers

Maybe not Mark. CZ have a 4th new A330-300 due for delivery, so these 4 aircraft are likely to operate the double-daily flights to SYD & MEL most of the time.

I don't know about specifics such as seat pitch etc, but CZ are pitching themselves as a creditable alternative to LHR, AMS, FRA via CAN. I doubt that they would 'reduce' their service standard to SYD, which is their key Australian destination.

Does anyone happen to know where the A380 will be re-deployed to, as it currently only serves LAX & SYD internationally ?

This is great news, however having flown CZ to KTM last week the A333 is a great product, can't recall the record off the top of my head but it was their newest, 2 weeks old.

However something I'm seeing more and more often is a gulf in products between aircraft.

The nearly 5 hour CAN - KTM on a old A319 was pretty tough.

Trip report to come when I get home in a month.

Cheers
