Well it looks like we will have MU operating into Brisbane seasonally over January and February before becoming permanent from November, as previously stated.

http://australianaviation.com.au/2015/1 ... -nov-2016/

China Eastern will operate year-round flights between Brisbane and its Shanghai hub from November 2016.

While the Skyteam member has already committed to serving the Queensland capital over January and February 2016 as a seasonal service, November will mark the start of the airline’s permanent presence on the Brisbane-Shanghai route.

Great to see a new carrier here in Brissy, even if it is another A330! B-5942 looked great this morning as it flew over home at 4,000ft
