we flew with wifey into HKG yesterday on QR818. QR816 was cancelled.
J was supposed to be half full. An infant sat in the row in front, so we asked to be moved and the purser asked some QR staff to switch seats. When door closed a woman with three young kids sat in the last row just behind us. So they switched us with another QR staff in the middle of the plane.
I felt sorry for creating a little disturbance, but the purser was very understanding (we paid full fare one way) and everything was smooth and took 5 minutes. She explained that the staff was going to fly back a QR815 and was supposed to be manning the QR816 DOH-HKG that day. They were quite happy to fly J rather than serving a flight.
But that felt weird to fly a full cabin to HKG.

Again wonderful flights from Europe to HKG. I am used to BA F and QR J makes me as happy, if not more. Wines and service are significantly better than BA F.
