Quick morning update ... The HKG CX Australia bound flights did manage to depart late last night (13/08/2019)... Expect delays in arriving in Australia this morning... I think these flights will be almost empty.. as HK check in was cancelled... I feel these flights were for transit passengers only

Friday 16th August sees CX157 HKG-BNE (A359 B-LRA) with revised arrival at 2 20, 165 min late. This pushes further the departure of CX156 BNE-HKG which is now tentative at 3 40. That's going to be a painful red-eye flight.

Monday 26 August 2019 finds CX134, the morning 0730 hours MEL to HKG (A359 B-LRD) not taking off until 0905 hours so arrival is 1607, 62 late.

A333 B-LAK on CX161, the 2130 hours redeye on Monday 26 August 2019 from HKG to SYD took off at 2255. Tuesday 27 arrival should be 0948, 58 minutes behind the timetable.

B773 B-KQN on CX139, the 0910 hours morning HKG down to SYD that took off at 0959 has been adversely affected by the heavy rain around Sydney, with arrival likely at 2120, an hour late. It initially briefly held above Willow Tree and then for a far longer period near Pokolbin.

CX163, the Sunday 1 September 1105 hours nicely timed HKG - MEL departed at 1152 with at gate arrival suggested as 2303 hours late tonight, 58 late.

CX151 from HKG to SYD is arriving 31 late at 2051 mid evening.

There are demonstrations outside the airport, with the thuggish HK police preventing these inside, and the Airport Express train has apparently been suspended.

The 2355 hours redeye, CX101 (also to SYD) is predicted to depart at 0100 hours on Monday 2, 65 late, so SYD arrival will be an estimated 1152, 62 late.

On Monday 2 Sepotember, CX110 (0735 hours SYD - HKG, A333 B-HLS) was in the sky at 0848 so arrival has become a suggested 1608 hours, 48 minutes late.

Southbound CX161, the Sunday 1 2130 hours HKG - SYD took off at 2230 so on Monday 2, expected arrival at gate is 0923, 33 late for B-LBJ, another A333.

In further, CX163 HKG-MEL (B777 B-KQF) is expected at 22 57, 52 min behind. This will create a very tight turnaround for the return service CX178

Wednesday 4 September 2019 has seen CX134 (the 0730 hours MEL - HKG) depart at 0849 and take off at 0902 hours, so arrival is predicted as 1551 this afternoon, 46 minutes late.

CX111, the 1850 hours early evening Thursday 12 September HKG to SYD )A333 B-LAF) took off at a delayed 2111 so on Friday 13, arrival looks to be 0819 hours, 124 minutes tardy. This will delay CX110, the morning 0735 hours back to HKG until a suggested 0935 in its pushback. In turn that will mean some passengers miss connections in HKG.

Interestingly the CX boss claimed bookings to and from Oz and NZ are 'holding up well' (not what QF's CEO has claimed re HKG, he says 'down 10 per cent') but Europe bookings are not.
