Hong Kong's bus enthusiasts seem to have ignored these special airport buses in their publications.

The rear seating was raised so that large amounts of luggage could be stored under the floor.

They were common in the UK on the Central London to Heathrow Airport route.

Make and model of the bus is Commer Commando Crew Bus XAT368, service started after second world war in 1947.
