^^^ Interesting. Have two trips to Hong Kong coming up for tourism/fun. Haven’t had a single concern or thought once about not going. It’s interesting what scares people these days - or, perhaps, let’s them justify their own fears. Love the city and the food, can’t wait to go back. Remember to brin...Jump to post

Hong Kong government has ordered CX/KA/UO & HX to cut 50% mainland china capacity immediately, HX is already in very bad financial shape, I think this will ultimately seal the coffin for them.

With all flights out cancelled and no check in were processed, VS207 left HKG last night bound for LHR around 1:07am according to flightradar24. Did they ferry the plane back without any passengers?

The plane landed alright, then the passengers have to walk the ramp, risking ground crews' life to serve the plane.
