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

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.

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...

so B-16703 will be on BR 7/8.

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

need to book myself to fly it one last time. Also really need to try actual HK service for long flight. My SFO flights was on the kitty plane but no kitty service.

which dates will it operate.

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