chala tension process idi ..



so true.
They have to drive to chennai which took eight hours with all the luggage.
If the flight gets cancelled like yesterday, they'd have to move to a hotel with all that luggage and uncertainty.

More than that inconvenience, it would have impacted the first week of kids' school.

OK. Update is they went through check-in at chennai to HK.
It seems check-in staff is super confident on things at HK and it seems they are saying there is nothing to worry and everything is fine for transit travelers.
It seems problem is only for people who check-in locally.
Will know if it is true or not after six hours :-( when they reach HK.


Hope they got in ok.. Flights are transiting thru hongkong today with some delays.

Naku 16th flight vundhi.. ee hadavidi ki bayapadi route change chesukunna

That is correct. I was in hongkong for 2 days just 2 weeks back, protest usually happening at front of the airport or arrival/departure check-in areas. If transit passenger stays within airport then there is no issue, security too good there.

5:45 p.m.

Hong Kong's airport has cancelled all remaining departing flights for the second day after protesters took over the terminals.

The airport authority announced early Tuesday evening that check-in services for departing flights were suspended as of 4:30 p.m. Other departing flights that have completed the process will continue to operate.

It said it did not expect arriving flights to be affected, though dozens of arriving flights were already cancelled.

The authority advised the public not to come to the airport

Jake_ryan:

Cathay site still shows the flight from Chennai is on schedule tonight at 1:30 AM and the connecting flight in Hong Kong tomorrow.




Chennai flight will operate. The connecting flight most probably will be cancelled. Make sure your family asks this specifically at the check-in counter. Akkada digina tarvata suffer avuthaaru.

Padivelu pothe poyindanukoni re-route them via a different transit hub.
This world appearance is a confusion: even as the blueness of the sky is an optical illusion. I think it is better not to let the mind dwell on it, but to ignore it.

Saint:

they said already checked in passengers would be travelling. No new bookings/ flights where the checkin dint start wont fly. Its already cancelled. If it is scheduled, it will fly unless the situation becomes much worse.



This I dont understand. Does it mean checkin at Hong Kong or any other airport with flights that transits through Hong kong as well?

Cathay site still shows the flight from Chennai is on schedule tonight at 1:30 AM and the connecting flight in Hong Kong tomorrow.

Family is still on the way to chennai airport. Will see how the checkin goes

I am clueless on what to suggest to my family. Should I ask them to take the flight from chennai if it goes on schedule?
It seems transit flights will work fine but looking at the situation at the airport, it is scary.
I hope at chennai they would reroute the itinerary

call the airlines and ask them to reroute the itinerary. They can book you on different flight.

you can do it in aiport check in or over the phone.

anyone is scheduled to come through hong kong airport?
Family is supposed to board flight today. Not sure whats going to happen.
They pretty much cancelled all the flights yesterday.

kids will lose the school if they miss the flight.
Imagine all the people that are stranded at the airport because of flight cancellations.
Hate these protesters who are blocking the airport. They should take their fight on their government but not on poor travelers who are suffering for no fault of theirs.
