Angry Passengers Charge at Cathay Pacific Security After Delays

Hundreds of irate passengers at Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) stormed the security cordon at Cathay Pacific check-in counters on Tuesday as the airport worked through a backlog of flights that were cancelled or delayed by Typhoon Nida. Airport security was called around noon after disgruntled travelers rushed the Cathay counters at aisle C of the departure hall, demanding passage from Cathay Pacific as well as an official explanation from the carrier before settling down and continuing their wait. The Hong Kong Observatory turned down its typhoon warning from No 8 to No 3 as 12:40 pm local time on Tuesday, signalling the return to calmer weather conditions after the tropical cyclone brushed the city overnight.
