No more F to Hong Kong?

I am booked in F to HKG in a few days.
Suddenly, EF shows F0A0 on all the flights from 18 January for the next two (or more Weeks).
BA website does not sell F anymore.
Yesterday, there was plenty of availability on some flights, not all . Mine shows 9 seats occupied om MMB.
What is happening? A bug? A planned aircraft change? a temporary bug?

On EF, I can see some F cabin availability for almost all flights during the period you mention.

So is this just a POS difference? I was using UK. There is the normal frequency reduction over Chinese New Year, which may have an effect.

Good point, just tried HK as POS and seemed to be some F selling class every day.

And I've just had no difficulty getting a price from ba.com for outbound 20 Jan inbound 27 Jan, in both directions. (Remember that ba.com uses HKG POS for the HKG-LHR-HKG itinerary, corroborating what KARFA has seen)

Thank you everyone.
Indeed, I cannot see any F with US (my default) or France POS. But can see with UK, HK POS.
I cannot buy F ticket from France (my origin). Actually, all fare buckets are zero from France (say 26/1 or around), while the flights are quite empty.

And all A availability have disappeared even from UK. Yesterday, BA just released a F award on 25, and
