September cancellations

CX post the July/August program on its website. But not September or after.

I had a flight CDG-HKG early September as CDG flights were supposed to resume. They just cancelled CDG and won't resume before October.
Probably only AMS, FRA and LHR in September.
As AF cancelled its flights due to the crew testing imposition, there are no nonstop alternatives and very few one-stops.

Sept schedule for YYZ HKG is live.
I have Sept 18 cancelled and moved to 17th, another choice is 20th. Looks like daily Sept schedule is back to 3X/wk.

Indeed, now shows 2 weekly on A359.
My flight was cancelled, was showing 77W and I think was six weekly until the change two days ago.

RGN has been closed to intlí commercial flights since April. Restrictions will likely get extended into late Q4.

LAX - HKG 12:30pm

My Sep. 17 22:50 HKG to TPE flight has been cancelled and I've been moved to an earlier flight. My Sep. 16 12:30 LAX to HKG flight is still shown confirmed. However, when I did a dummy LAX - TPE booking for Sep. 16, this flight (CX 885) was no longer available. CX 885 was still shown as an option one week ago. I believe that CX 885 will get cancelled eventually. I hope CX will inform us sooner rather than later so that we could make our adjustments for our trips.

Cheers,
Chan

My CX494 on 19Sepís been axed.

This was redeemed on Avios so I couldnít refund earlier under AM rules but since the flight numberís been axed Iíd push BAEC for full refund notwithstanding rebooking.

I received an email from CX this morning, confirming that CX 885 was cancelled and I was re-booked on CX881.

Surprised to see Manchester get 3x weekly. I have a flight booked for KUL via HKG in December which obviously I won't be allowed to do given entry requirements so had hoped for the easy route of a cancellation of the MAN flight but I guess that's not looking as likely now.

One advantage of UK is that anyone can enter/transfer there freely, except for possible quarantine. Hence UK tends to have customers flying into Europe.

Also Malaysia is doing quite well currently for Covid. They might relax entry further (Second Home are now allowed).

Under COVID:
- If you have to transit then the more open the place is the better.
- If you have to live there you'd feel differently.

Yes, amazing UK still allows this!

The "quarantine" too is a joke in the UK - its based on the honor system, and you're welcome to use public transport from the airport and indeed even go out and do some food shopping during the "quarantine" period!
