The perfect excuse to end HKG flights?

So yesterday’s delayed flights from HKG departed today.
The flights scheduled today to HKG were able to land.
Today’s scheduled flights from HKG are delayed until tomorrow as HKG is closed AGAIN.
Interesting if they send 2 aircraft back up to HKG tomorrow.

It seems to work, essentially they haven’t cancelled a flight yet just delayed. Better than QF who have 4 aircraft on the ground with no plan to do something similar.

So with everyone who landed on VA83 earlier today, is it just an overnight wait at the gate/lounge (I assume not open) or are people being sent out to hotels for the night?

All 4 QF flights managed to depart from HKG last night (with various delays) so VA has two aircraft stuck in HKG overnight.
