Latest update: 12 Sep 2018 16:00 HKT (GMT+8)

Due to Typhoon Mangkhut, with immediate effect, rebooking, rerouting and refund charges will be waived for all tickets issued worldwide (irrespective of fare type) on/before 11 September 2018 for travel with Cathay Pacific/Cathay Dragon confirmed booking arriving to and departing from Hong Kong between 16 September and 18 September 2018.

By Sept 18, the typhoon is expected to be overhead northern Vietnam.

Looks to me, CX/KA are preparing to have the airplanes moved out of HKG, just in case, HKG gets a direct hit from the north-side of the typhoon (the heavy winds side). Then they will need Sept 18, to get the airplanes back to HKG and crews back in legal times scales. Airplanes don't like it to get extreme turbulent 145kts winds ....
