Now demonstrations impact on Hong Kong airlines

First Hong Kong hotels were hit by the ongoing pro-democracy demonstrations; now airlines are suffering as well.


Having significantly cut capacity, Hong Kong Airlines now plans to do allow expat pilots to take voluntary leave. Like Cathay Pacific, the airline has cut capacity on multiple routes. 


HK Airlines has offered voluntary redundancy to some pilots after it scrapped flights to Cairns, the Gold Coast, Auckland and Fuzhou.

Now US services are being scaled back.

After halting the daily Airbus A350-900 service to San Francisco, HK Airlines will soon downgrade its daily Los Angeles service to five flights a week.
