BA28 and 32 15th June 2017

Just looking at both flights and BA28 (HKG-LHR) hasn't yet left - not even showing on FlightRadar, BA32 is still on the ground also although shows on flightradar. Anybody have any info on reason for the delays tonight?

No idea if related- I haven't checked, but there was a little piece in The Times yesterday about a typhoon barrelling towards HKG...

Best bet would probably be Chinese ATC restrictions. Think it was Monday night that Typhoon signal 8 was raised then lowered to 3 on Tuesday morning.

Due to atc en-route demand/capacity.

Typically no compensation, but there would be right of care. But it depends a bit on exactly what happened and usually the captain's pre-flight announcement would explain any delay in some detail.

BA32 scheduled 2310-0450, actual 0256-0906 (with a 45-minute gap between departure and take-off).

BA28 scheduled 2345-0535, actual 0331-0917 (with a more conventional 22-minute gap before take-off).

From personal experience of a similar situation, they must have been very close to going out of hours.
