Remarks:Cathay 8153 arriving from Hong Kong on the final Cathay charter for Chinese New Year. To our luck these fights were operated by the A330s in the short-haul configuration meaning that some different regos were seen to the ones frequenting capital city ports around Australia.
Remarks:New Zealand 937 completing the 3 hour flight from Auckland today operated by one of two A320s previously leased out by Air New Zealand. Unfortunately, the other one, OJL, crashed on a training flight in Europe. This one came back to the fleet in May 2012 after serving with TAM in Brazil.
Remarks:Cathay 8159 being the first of three charters from Hong Kong for the Chinese New Year Period. Amazingly the first service happened to be operated by the oneworld A333 which is very rare in Australia. This also made it the first oneworld scheme to visit OOL. A great day for international operations out of the Gold Coast as we had flights from KIX, NRT, AKL, KUL, SIN and HKG all within three hours.
