I live and work in HK. Unless you actively look for protest areas, the average visitor will feel little to no effect, other than quiet restaurants and cheap hotels.

LHR-NCE

Yes, due to fly LHR-NCE on the 8th, and received the same mysterious email. If not for this thread, Iíd have booked another (non-refundable) ticket on EasyJet and been stuck with that.

Yes, I'm having the same issue. Very frustrating, since I'm more than happy to position from HKG to any number of places in order to find better fares.

I still can't seem to figure out what the actual rule is, but this new policy is certainly making my travel planning more difficult.

Does anyone here with QR connections (or access to information) know if this is truly the beginning of a rule/policy, or is more of a glitch?

TravelDream.. exactly my issue.. and there doesn't seem to be a ton of rhyme or reason for which country combinations work and which ones don't.

Hmm, maybe this doesn't apply ex-Europe? I was able to price something Italy-Asia-Belgium. I can't seem to combine any Asian countries, for bookings ex-Asia.

No More Open-Jaw Bookings (A-B, B-C)?

Apologies if this has been covered already, but am I correct in saying one can no longer book an open jaw on the origin end, only on the destination (middle of the open jaw)?

Yes, had four recent segments to and from HKG-LAX/DFW on AA and the mattress is self deployed. The design works well, basically a little hood slips over the headrest, and then the mattress unfolds...

What surprised me the most is that, on some attempts, MLE-HKG was showing completely sold out (not even full J), when the OTAs were selling D fares.

POS (Point of Sale) Discrepancy Question vs. Online Travel Agencies

I often find (ex-MLE in this case) that the CX.com availability varies greatly from Ctrip, Expedia, etc. The OTAs will happily sell C, D, I fares, but CX.com and CX call centres only sell full J.

Mixed Class Bookings (or lack thereof)

Am I correct in saying CX are getting more restrictive with allowing mixed class bookings, especially from Asian outports? I recall it being easier a few years ago.

This may be a silly question, but what about CAN? I have a China visa, but staying airside would be great.

If not, I could just take the train from HKG, but the flying turnaround would be better.

JFK-HKG-TYO is certainly the long way around, but at that fare is very reasonable price, and will net good EQMs as well. Just be sure to pick aircraft for the NRT/HND segments that have a Y+ cabin....
