The SYD-HND flights sparked a bit of interest from Mrs Jase as they are set to be day flights over and back (she hates the early morning arrivals back to Australia)Given that ANA just announced it's new SYD-HND flights will go on sale mid next month, I suspect Virgin might open sales around the same time.
Has it even been approved yet?Do we have any details about Virgin's new partnership? (Or speculation!)
Yep will definitely be long haul, Brisbane to Tokyo (HND) is only 166 miles shorter than SYD-HKG.I’m thinking Haneda will probably be international long haul rather than short haul?
It connects with the direct HBA - BNE flight on Saturdays but Hobartians will have to suffer two domestic flights to connect on all the other days. I wish VA would fly from MEL. The transfers are so quick and easy.Seems they prioritised domestic connections in AU above connections on the Japan end - from what I can tell an 8pm arrival into HND means no same-day ANA domestic connections.
Probably a wise move however and an 11:40am departure from BNE connects comfortably from ADL,SYD,MEL,CBR,CNS and even a few regional destinations.
Domestic connections in Japan are all bookable on the VA website but still all NH-coded for now.
Sounds like a good status run depending on how it prices out!It connects with the direct HBA - BNE flight on Saturdays but Hobartians will have to suffer two domestic flights to connect on all the other days.
For a new route to a new country the initial fare release was never going to be prefect. I'd hope the website limitations would be fixed within a few weeks but international J booking into domestic Y is definitely worrying.Domestic Business connections are booking into Economy.
