I've actually never missed a SHA-HKG flight, but if I did, getting rebooked on the next one would be super easy (I've moved flights forward on several occasions).

ETA: SHA-HKG flights used to sell out on Sundays, Mondays, and Fridays, but this no longer the case because Spring relieves pressure on demand.
with only one KA flight a day from SHA I'd hope not to miss it!
