CX888 HKG-YVR-JFK Just Cancelled?

Fri Aug 04, 2006 2:51 am

According www.yvr.ca it says that the flight is cancelled. The first time I have ever seen this happened. Did something happen to one of CX 744? This route carries a lot of ppl. The ones flying HKG-YVR, Ones that fly HKG-JFK or YVR-JFK, ones that fly JFK-YVR or JFK-HKG, or YVR-HKG.

Does anyone know whats going on?

BTW, they have a horrible time trying to be on-time on this one lately.

The information is from this thread:
http://the-wu.org/hkgspotting/viewtopic.php?t=1906

Thanks to those who put it together. It looks like all CX flights are cancelled until tomorrow morning.

Look at this thread for more info: Delays/Diversions In HKG (by Superhub Aug 3 2006 in Civil Aviation)

Maybe CX can get their flights back on schedule after this one day of cancelling. Wow~ Pretty intense winds.

On the other hand, I saw a few flights taking off at 33 knots winds and it looked pretty intense. But oh well.......

Thanks for the detailed info

Well this is what the BA website says about the BA27...

I've got no idea where it is!!!

The BA25 has gone to Shanghai and i think is now on its way to HKG..but who knows!

the majority of yesterday's long-haul flights didn't manage to leave HKG, which consequently means none of those flights will be coming back tomorrow. over 30 aircrafts are diverted to airports around HKG. it'll take at least a couple of days to get back to normal.
