Though half the flights arriving or leaving in Hong Kong have been canceled, the airport is still packed with people. The business class check-in line, usually empty or with only a few people on a regular day, was registering a 45-minute wait.
One passenger, Andrea Lo, was due to fly from Japan to Hong Kong -- but her flight has now been rescheduled for tomorrow evening.
"I received an alert at around 3 a.m. local time telling us about the rescheduling. I initially assumed the delay was for the same day since I’ve rarely seen flights delayed for more than 24 hours, so was a bit surprised upon double checking to see it’s delayed to tomorrow," Lo said.
