China Southern is swapping out one of its its daily A330 services between Guangzhou and Melbourne for an A380 over the busy southern hemisphere summer.

Between January 10, 2020 and February 13, 2020, CZ321 down to Melbourne and CZ344 back to Guangzhou will be operated by an A380.

China Southern operate three classes on their A380s – first, business, and economy, squeezing in 506 passengers. Their eight seat first class cabin got a solid review by Javi Rodriguez on The Points Guy last week.

The China Southern A380 flights between Guangzhou and Melbourne are scheduled as:

Note the China Southern A380 flights operate between January 10, 2020 and February 13, 2020, inclusive. After this date the flights will revert to the regular A330 service.

The other China Southern flights to Melbourne, CZ343 and CZ643, are being operated by A330s over all the summer as are the return flights to Guangzhou, CZ644 and CZ322.
