It is going to get worse. This news is awful for those in HK trying to get back to Australia.

Hate to drag into politics... but CX now with the links to CCP and mainland China, I am glad when this airline goes bust... hkers most do NOT want to fly with this airline since mid 2019
I'd wait a couple of days. They could very well reinstate the flights just like that other airline.
I feel sorry for the staff but as I said, the airline deserved to go bankrupt for going against the back to the people against the tyrant government in CCPHopefully other airlines can step up and fill in the remaining caps.
I understand where you are coming from, especially with NSL and CX's implications. But this would hurt the staff far more than management.
Doubt it. This is nothing to do with Australia's cap. It is got to do HK government's requirements for quarantining their own aircrew at home. It meant that aircrew is pretty locked up for months.
I cannot see this being relaxed until HK's COVID cases has dropped to single digits.
Hopefully other airlines can step up and fill in the remaining caps.
