    With the the demise of the A380 service to HKG, will Qantas still offer PE services or will passengers only be able to fly in Y or J

    Thank you,

    QF has indicated that the SYD-HKG route will be serviced by the 747 with the odd 380 service, so that is the answer to your question.

    You will have premium economy while the 747 is still around.

    Don't count on it though when only A330s are on the route.

    Which is why QF should fit the A330s with a small Y+ cabin.

    Scheds are now loaded in the GDS, its a 744 everyday, so the answer is yes.

    Yes they should, as many people have been telling them. Yet for some insane reason, QF won't add W to the 330s.

    CX has 39J/28W/175Y on their "33G" for 242 seats. I see no reason QF can't put W on their 330s.
    The QF A330-300s currently have 30J/267Y and 36J/199-268Y (depending on config) on the A330-200s.
    They could have 30J/24W/170ishY

    Define small? I think reducing the number of economy seats on that aircraft is the worst thing they can do. I can see economy continually oversold.

    2 rows of PE would be sufficient. I would also take out a row of J since it is never full to lessen the reduction in Y.

    Be thankful you still have QF flying to HKG. Try booking a flight from PER to HKG, SIN or anywhere in South Africa - the only option is to spend a few hours flying to SYD first!

    Only if you want to fly QF. Each of those ports you have mentioned have direct flights from PER on other carriers.

    Thank you all for your replies. I guess we are worried that PE will be cut from HKG route as happened with SIN. We really enjoy flying PE and would be very disappointed if it disappeared from HKG. I would much rather fly in the A380 than the 747 but guess there will be no choice when this happens.

    Qantas are really testing their customers loyalty by the changes they are making at the moment.
