Yesterday Vietnam Airlines upgraded their Sydney and Melbourne flights from 777-200ER’s, and A330’s to 787 aircraft.

The change is a welcome upgrade for travelers as their 787’s feature a better business class cabin than the aircraft previously operating the route and strangely their A350’s which is very weird.
