Changes in catering between Manila and Hong Kong

I was told that there was a new change in catering for Business class and Economy class starting July 12.

For Business class, passengers will be provided a 500ml bottled water, a snack bag with a fruit cup, a cold sandwich, and a dry snack. it will be placed on the seats prior to boarding. Where as Economy class passengers may get their snack bag containing a bottled water, a cold sandwich and cookie from the galley during boarding.

Not entirely sure if this is only for Manila or will Taipei be the same since they normally have similar meal service format.

They never gave up Manila even back in March and April, doing 1 weekly flight. Now that Filipinos are allowed to travel and HK allowing transit passengers I doubt that will happen.

Unlikely it will happen anytime soon I'm afraid.

I think airlines should require a recent RT-PCR test for all passengers, and another Covid anti-bodies test prior to check in. This would decrease the risk of carrying infected passengers out of the country.

There are around 10 imported cases travelling CX flight from Manila in the past 14 days. So guess CX is taking more precautions

Looking at this list. Seem like out of the last 14 days, there were 13 days whereby pax on CX906 was confirm to have Covid-19. there was one day where the flight was mention as CX903 which should be typo
so the cabin crew need to be quarantine?
