The group is doing fine and as we speak have all their luggage and some good meal vouchers from Cathay Pacific as they’ve had to make an unexpected stop over in Vancouver, Canada. There were some minor mechanical issues that caused the stopover and subsequent cancellation, but there’s some good news. Everyone for INDIA and SHANTI that were booked on the Hong Kong leg have been rescheduled to depart at 3:10pm today on Cathay flight 839. They are scheduled to keep their existing reservation departing Hong Kong and arriving into Delhi on the 12th at 2:05 AM as shown on their regular tickets … they will basically arrive into Delhi as scheduled, however missing out on the opportunity to explore Hong Kong.
I’ve just been on the phone with the Travel Consultant at Global Vision Travel and despite the unexpected hiccup, we both were extremely happy to have the pilot make the call to cancel the flight before being stuck over the Pacific … this is yet another reason we love working with Cathay!
