Not sure what else.
Hi there,

The routes I believe are:

HKG - the BA27/28 returns to a 777-300
SYD - the BA15/16 remains a 777-300
GIG - new route for a 777-300

This gives a schedule that could roughly look like:

Day 1: GIG-LHR arr Day 2
Day 2: LHR-SIN arr Day 3
Day 3: SIN - SYD arr Day 4
Day 4: SYD-SIN-LHR arr Day 5
Day 5: LHR-NRT* arr Day 6
Day 6: NRT*-LHR
Day 6: LHR-HKG arr Day 7
Day 7: HKG-LHR arr Day 8 (which would be day 1 to go out again)

* I have used NRT here but could be PVG, JFK or plenty of other destinations would fit.

So the bottom line is 1 more destination and probably not every day as they generally like a day or 2 downtime for each frame. My guess would be somewhere for 5 days/week but maybe someone else can see from other sources.
