Qantas announced today that it has scheduled additional services to Dallas (Fort Worth Airport) and Hong Kong during the holiday season, to cater for increased demand.
Similar to their recent increase of the services between Sydney and Vancouver for the northern ski season, the ‘seasonal demand’ strategy is becoming a trend for Qantas. This additional capacity is designed to deliver on Qantas’ promise to its passengers of offering a more dynamic schedule, providing them with more choice.
The Sydney-Dallas route currently runs six flights per week and this will increase to daily services aboard the A380 from 08 December to 19 January.
The Sydney-Hong Kong route is already a daily service but it is run on their fleet of B747 aircraft. From 10 December to 20 January, Qantas will upgrade the service on five days per week (Thu-Mon) to an A380 aircraft, then going daily from 21 January to 16 February.
First Class passengers to Hong Kong will be especially happy with this change as they’ll get to enjoy a fully flat, extra wide bed of 212cm on the A380, as opposed to the beds in Qantas’ 747 which are just 200cm long.
