With another typhoon barrelling down on us, I got to thinking. During the course of this year, if a typhoon is expected to hit TPE directly, CX has tended to suspend flying into TPE during the typhoon period.
Quite a number of the CX TPE flights continue to another destination (NRT, NGO, ICN etc). In this case, does CX can the whole flight, or is the flight flown direct, simply going around the storm? The A/C CX uses on these flights are quite capable of making HKG - XXX nonstop.
I would assume that it would be less troublesome to the PAX to have the flight completed than to can the flight entirely. I also assume that since the cancellation is weather-related, CX is not responsible for accommodating stranded PAX.
