8th April 2021 – (Hong Kong) Cathay Pacific Airways has been instructed by the government to operate two designated flights back to Hong Kong from the United Kingdom. From today (8th), reservations are open but unexpectedly, after the online reservation system was activated at 4 pm, a server error was displayed and it was impossible to purchase tickets.
The one-way economy class ticket is priced at 909 pounds or HK$9,700 and all air tickets were sold out within 2 hours. The two designated flights will depart from London Heathrow Airport on 21st and 28th April respectively and they will arrive in Hong Kong early the next morning. Passengers can start booking after selecting the cabin class, flight date and the number of passengers, but the webpage keeps showing that an error has occurred and fails to enter the booking screen.
