Since Cathay is experiencing a decline in forward bookings due to the current turmoil in Hong Kong, does anyone have any idea whether more award seats might be made available for redemption to fill up their planes?

Hi ASmith, please do not post the same question more than once.

As the YOY passenger figure for August to/from HK from AU and NZ was an increase of 5.3% I would expect not.

Certainly unlikely from Dublin. Looks like the route has gone forever. With flight capacity also down about 20% From USA I can only see awards especially for OneWorld Partners getting more difficult in the Premium Cabins.

September is not of course going to be good for Cathay for obvious reasons but NZ/AU should hold up better than some routes.
Quotes above re Cathay business being anything approaching 38% down overall are just not correct.
BTW the Dublin route has not 'gone forever' but is now seasonal.
