I recommend flying to KLAX, KLAS, or KDEN, from one set of beautiful scenery to jaw dropping, awe-inspiring mountains!

Love hong kong! Should be great!

Thanks for the post! I was in the middle of trying decide how I was going to get into VHHH, so this helped a lot.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there

HKG-SEA for DLVA!! Will be a nice flight!

@Matthew_Chan great list and I would not like to criticise however being from Brisbane myself the YBBN-VHHH is operated by QANTAS with the A330, not the 747.

Also you should add VHHH-YSSY-YMML-YBWW-VHHH, this is Cathay Pacific Freighter flight that goes once a week to Toowoomba.

Planes not in IF :(

Most likely mixed up with Melbourne, I’ll check again. I’ll replace it with the 787 for now(Closest A330 counterpart for QF)

I am flying from YSSY in a Cathay Pacific 777-300ER right now

To all controllers: please open some nearby airports to allow short/medium haul flights to/from VHHH and avoid an unbearable congestion in HK. Thanks. See you tonight.
