Are we sure that the much publicised DM-GO-OWE op-up order still works?

True. I'm seeing the same drastic fall in places like Singapore too, where I could book the Fairmont for S$203 for a weekend stay last week. I also booked the Conrad SIN for just over S$220 one time...

There's no GST/VAT in Hong Kong; I live here. You must be thinking of someplace else. In HK, it's just room plus 10 percent service.

Staying at the Hyatt Regency Perth, and no upgrade offered. In fact I didn't even get the best room available, as they put me in a pool view room instead of the better river view room.

I'm with Percy on this. CX can charge a premium only ex-HKG, and that is only because it's got a stranglehold on flight slots here, not because of its products and services.
