    Really not happy about losing the sector, but I do feel for the affected crew.

    Is this route really operated currently by Virgin Atlantic and not Virgin Australia?

    Yes, the Hong Kong - Sydney route was always operated by Virgin Atlantic.

    Yep, and those airlines are two completely distinct entities. One is owned by Delta and Virgin Group and the other is owned by Australian Investors, Singapore Airlines, Etihad and others.

    I know they're different. I just hadn't realized that VS served Australia, but it would make sense as a connection from LHR.

    I'd be happy if VA actually took up flying from Australian ports to HKG. That would make a much nicer connection OZ to LHR with fewer lounge access complications than AUH, and a connection to VA to VS.
