Hong Kong Airlines to suspend Hong Kong-Los Angeles service

    Hong Kong Airlines plans to suspend daily Hong Kong-Los Angeles service, effective 06-Feb-2020, as per a 04-Nov-2019 GDS display and inventory. The carrier said it will be monitoring the market to determine if the service has to be suspended earlier (ATW Online, 04-Nov-2019). Hong Kong Airlines plans to cut operations by 6%, with frequencies to be adjusted in other markets. Hong Kong Airlines noted the ongoing protests in Hong Kong have affected demand and revenue, while “strong competition and overcapacity” have meant the airline “has been operating in a challenging business environment for some time”.
