EK 384-385 BKK HKG Day return

Hi all,
I am thinking about doing a round trip of BKK-HKG on the same day.
The outbound flight EK 384 leaves BKK at 1400hrs and arrives HKG at 1800hrs. THe return flight EK 385 leaves HKG around 2200hrs then arrives BKK around midnight.

The business class fare is approximatly UCD 450!! What a burgain!!!

My question is

1. Are these flights operated by same crew?

2. What do they do for hour hours layover time in HKG? I have seen cabin crew in the lounge before. Do they have the access to the lounge if they are doing a day trip? or do they just stay on the plane for four hours?

3. Which seat is the best seat in the business class on A380? I am trying to book a different zone on the return flight so that I dont bump into the same crew on the return flight (hehehe)


I know this is the crazy trip and I am being silly but if you can answer my question it would be highly appreciated!!

Thanks!!

Why not fly F one of the legs? Last year when I was in MNL and needed to get back to HYD I decided to experience EK F Suites on the A380. 39k miles but cash fares also pretty decent. Got a cheap Cebu flights MNL-HKG, spent the day there then enjoyed a lovely 3-hour F experience incl champagne, dinner and shower in the air, before a day in BKK and a cheap Indigo flight back to HYD via CCU. Well worth it. Actually been thinking of doing something similar again.

It's one of the routes with the best value cash and miles fares.
