Aircraft will be withdrawn from service in 2Q20 for return to lessor.

How sad...I wonder if BR will introduce any new Hello Kitty planes to fill the gap.

Not likely. They are introduced when the son of the founder of EVA was in charge, who has been forced to leave the company and created a new airline.

Thanks for the reply, I guess I am twice as sad now.
Gonna miss those kitty napkins.

The first generation of HK was by the current chairman. The son was not the one that came up with the bright idea in the 2000s.

I checked the timeline and you are probably right. Thx for correction.

Looks like LAX HK is cut for entirety of May 2019 :(

Have an upcoming trip which was planned such that I could try out the HK service too....

I see some schedule adjustments on the TPE-ORD-TPE route but there is a discordance on the website (map route vs timetable)

For ORD-TPE, it seems to go Wed/Fri instead of Mon/Thu/Sat beginning in May. I didn't find any notice of that.

I have a flight on early Saturday morning (00:30) in September and I wish it will be HK :P

I was just routing a flight to Tokyo through Taipei and am bit disappointed that I won't be able to try the Gudetama plane.
That HKG route means that I'm going to want to to do a lot of TPE layovers if the price is right. Also planning to add TPE to my SFO trips assuming reasonable prices. Too bad the flights aren't timed correctly for a HKG>TPE>SFO full Sanrio experience.

I hope they drop HK from the ICN route, I want to have the newer a330 instead - tired of the old angle flat seats...

HK route served by HK jet. Sounds about right.

i flew it 3 times (first service to HKG) and twice out of SFO.

Yes, B-16703 will be on BR7/8. This is the final route before it is returned to lessor in 2020.
