The new HFP chat thread – Monday 1st June

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

We have decided to run this new daily chat thread on Head for Points.

Historically, the daily ‘Bits’ articles were the defacto repository for random comments and questions.  It is unlikely that the news flow will be so big over the next few weeks that we will need many ‘Bits’ articles, however.

The comments under this article are where you should post questions about travel and, indeed, anything else on your mind.  At this tricky time, and given that many of you are stuck at home self-isolating, we want the HFP community to have a place to chat.

Please only comment under the main articles on the site if your comment is directly related to the topic of the article.  This has long-term benefits as its keeps the commentary relevant for people who read those articles in the future.

By default, HFP shows the last page of comments under the article.  If you want to see the first page of comments and read them all from beginning to end in order, click here:  The page will refresh with this article but the comments will now show the first page and not the last page.

We will continue to monitor how this is working.  Let’s see how it goes.  Take care!

    Seat spy is showing no seats available for Orlando now till the 27th July. Also if you try to book a flight to Orlando before the 27th July, no BA flights.

    But my flight to Orlando via Gatwick is still on time Olin my timeline.

    Just seen some really good prices to HKG for Easter 21 (Virgin, but also Swiss/Lufty).
    Does anyone think it would be unwise to travel there next year?
    I was thinking more about the demonstrations rather than the virus, but had assumed both would have been defeated by then.


    • Defeat the demonstrations for democracy. Sure thing. 🙄

    • If the demonstrations have been “defeated”, you would be better off going to Beijing, as there will no longer be anything special about Hong Kong (which will be renamed Xianggang).

        This fight for self determination is really screwing up my travel plans. Really inconsiderate.
