In the past week, Qatar Airways, All Nippon Airways, and Japan Airlines have announced the deployment of Boeing 787 Dreamliner’s on their routes to Hong Kong. Starting from summer of 2016, JAL replace the current 767-300ER’s currently operating the Sapporo (CTS) to HKG with 787-8’s. Subsequently, in September, ANA will replace the 777-200ER’s on their Tokyo Haneda (HND) to HKG with 787-9’s. Finally, Qatar Airways will replace the Airbus A330-200’s on their Doha (DOH) to HKG route with 787-8’s in October. This is good news for HKG spotters, as we will be able to see 787 Dreamliner’s from three additional carriers. Currently, the only 787’s flying into HKG on a regular basis belong to Scoot, Air India, Kenyan Airways, Ethiopian Airlines, Virgin Atlantic, and Royal Jordanian.
