Today's CX landed MAN at 0623 this morning (B-KQY is the aircraft) its just the outbound CX358 that's cancelled - tech issue perhaps ? These things happen occasionally....

It appears to be the outbound Cathay Pacific which is cancelled. B-KQY arrived inbound as CPA357 at 06:23. So I guess the outbound passengers will be able to travel on that aircraft when its departure to HKG has been rescheduled.

Ah, thanks for that, and my apologies. I happened to be in T2 and didn't check the arrivals, but the guy I spoke to had a written note and said a typhoon in HK was the reason for the cancelled departure. Maybe it's a predicted storm that's led to the cancellation, which also happens with flights to the US occasionally.

Thanks to you too Shed. I shouldn't have jumped to the wrong conclusion, which I wouldn't have done had I seen the a/c on the ground!

The guy I spoke to was flying on to Sydney and I heard the CX assistant tell him to contact his travel agent.

Still annoyed about AA though.

The CX flight is indeed cancelled due to a Tropical Cyclone. According to a message on the CX website all flights scheduled through HKG between 10pm today and 2pm Tuesday (HKG time) are affected. Presumably this means today's CX358 might leave MAN sometime tomorrow, whilst Tuesday's CX357 ex HKG will also be affected.

Cool

All flts to Europe tonight are cancelled, due typhoon as stated, not too bad at the moment but due to hit here around 2200. Typhoon warning in place until 1400 tomorrow. Today's 358 will depart 0700 tomorrow, but no inbound flt. Pax protected elsewhere as far as possible.
They've just boarded up the doors in the hotel so could be a bumpy night here!

Notice that TCX is showing MIA as operated by AirTanker during Nov/Dec before returning to own equip when it resumes in May 17. Anyone know what aircraft will be used by Air Tanker?

No conspiracy theories; Nida looks like it is going to batter HKG:

HKG

My mate lives in HKG. It's in virtual lockdown. Most schools & offices closed- certainly wouldn't want to be flying anywhere near that.
There are also severe thunderstorms in New York, Boston & Philadelphia causing flight disruptions,however, not seen any wx related incidents at Chicago.
I don't know why anyone would book on AA55, it must mean 55% chance of operating (?)

Just advised a co-worker who was looking at a MAN-ORD-??? connection to look at alternatives. An overreaction or commonsense?

I'm in theory flying on the AA Dreamliner ORD/MAN on the 30th August, still have seat assignment on the 787 but that means nothing if its cancelled on the day.....

Breaking News Tuesday AAL54Tuesday AAL54

It's actually left.

More than a sporting chance it may actually arrive.

Meanwhile, let's play "spot the investment coming under threat"

Routes have just annouced Detroit although very "seasonal". DL/VIR

Fantastic news ....

I don't want to be chirlish but going West do we only do business in the summer ?

You beat me to it Bagso

Seasonal is a good way to launch the route, if it proves a success it's season can be increased.

Another long talked of destination off the list...and more VS/DL investment in MAN. Good news despite the seasonality.

If I'm reading the same article it says final confirmation from DL/VS has been deferred to end of September while they "assess the impact of brexit" on next year's demand.

Great news if it does get final confirmation though - it's about time MAN had a reliable carrier to the US midwest again (yes AA, I'm looking at you !!)

Quite right Logohu. Wise to be cautious unless and until finally confirmed.

"The airlines were expected to make an announcement and open reservations for the Detroit - Manchester this month although it is understood that the final go-ahead has been delayed until the impact of the Brexit referendum result and the UK's departure from the European Union will have on demand is better understood"
