Asiana Airlines To Operate Various Aircraft Types On Sydney Services From October

Many months ago I wrote about Asiana using their A380 on selected Sydney services in November. They have now released which aircraft will be operating the routes. Here is the full schedule:

The A330, 772 and A380 feature full flat beds and the 747 will feature like flat beds or also known as angled flat.

What’s interesting about this is the the A380 does feature a first class cabin however, they are deciding not to sell first tickets on the flights.

Bottom Line

I definitely did not expect to see a 747 put in the mix as Sydney is usually full of A330’s but it’s nice to see the changes in aircraft on the route.

The South Korean airline Asiana has today announced they will replace some of their A330-300 with A380 aircraft for some one-off services in November

The A380 is scheduled on 13NOV16, 17NOV16, 18NOV16, 21NOV16, 22NOV16 and 26NOV16. Sydney departs on the following day.

OZ601 ICN2000 – 0820+1SYD 388
OZ602 SYD1020 – 1900ICN 388

This is a significant change in aircraft for the route and could be a sign of  what is to come in the future for the airline on the Sydney route. Their competitor Korean Air also operate A380 aircraft on the same route

Asiana have a business class product similar to Vietnam Airlines. All are 180 degree flat bed.

Summary

It is good to see Asiana increasing passenger numbers for the route and hopefully the A380 is made permanent in the future.
