British Airways cancels one daily Hong Kong flight due to coronavirus

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

In a not-very-surprising move, albeit one that has not been publicly announced yet, British Airways has cancelled the daily BA31/32 flights to and from Hong Kong.

The last departure was last night.  It is timetabled to return on 1st May although that could easily move backwards or forwards before then.

The remaining service is an A380 with, I have been told, pitiful load factors in recent days.  It is almost certain that passengers from BA31/32 will be moved across to this flight.

The only thing that is surprising about this is that I would have expected both flights this weekend to be full with children returning for half term, although many schools have told children that they may not be readmitted without a quarantine period.
