This situation has become a total joke short haul. Even a route as bland as MNL-HKG where CX has 6 dailies, everything from 4 April to 5 May has been completely blocked in all classes on all flights. However on 3 April or 6 May there is plenty. CX are just taking the "cut off the nose" approach to what they foresee as a problem. It may be easy to just impose a blanket block for certain sectors for an entire month, but in the long run it will cost them money. Avios itself has already lost a lot of value here in Hong Kong, from what I tell by the bank promotions.

CX could have solved the issue in so many different ways - increase cost of Avios, reduce availability, etc. This is just lazy.
