British Airways announced it will add a thrice-weekly service between Hong Kong and London on March 25, 2012, featuring the carrier's new First cabin, which was unveiled in February 2010 (see story here).
As reported earlier (see story here), this additional flight compensates for the lack of a daily Qantas flight between Hong Kong and London, which was dropped as a result of the restructured Joint Services Agreement (JSA) between British Airways and Qantas.
Operated by a Boeing B777-200, the new daytime flight, BA22, will depart Hong Kong on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 0910, arriving in London at 1500. The flight back from London, BA21, will depart on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays at noon, arriving in Hong Kong at 0720.
These flights are in addition to the double daily flights already on this route, bringing the total to 17 flights per week.
BA22 and BA21 will operate until April 28, again from May 27 until September 3, and from October 3 until October 27, 2012.
