Arrive at Hongkong at 09:20, we surely missed the flight. A lot of people missed their flight, for example those who has continue flight to Seoul. But they are a big group, almost 30 people. So, the plane is waiting for them. We are only 8 people T___T ~cry
Once entering the waiting hall, the staff from Cathay has already call us “Changsa.. Changsa..” and then they take us to the nearest transit hall and give us 2 option.
- Stay at Hongkong, then go to Changsa with next day flight (they already hold the ticket).
- Continue the journey, but they will re-route our route. We will first go to Hangzhou with Dragon Air at 12:25-14:40, then continue to Changsa with local flight at 15:40-17:05.
We choose the 2nd option, because surely we can’t do anything in Hongkong (only transit in hotel), so it’s better if we today arrive at Changsa.
They give us lunch voucher at Hongkong International Airport. Then after eating lunch, we go to waiting hall.
And you know what, the flight got delayed again ~cry. We depart from Hongkong 13:00 and arrive at Hangzhou at 15:30, so we missed the flight to Changsa again. Haha… ~lol, I really don’t know am I should cry or laugh
Arrive at Hangzhou, the staff from Cathay Pasific has already waiting for us. They assist us to domestic terminal, then give us the flight ticket to Changsa at 23:30 and give us afternoon tea voucher for 90 RMB.
We eat dinner at Kungfu Restaurant then waiting for check-in counter to open at 20:30.
Then at 23:30 we depart to Changsa, and arrive at 01:15. We got a business class at Eastern China Airlines.
Our local guide has already waiting for us at Changsa. And he take us to Xiang Rong Hotel to rest.
It’s really a long journey to start a trip. haha.. But, I will always remember this memory, 33 hours Airport to Airport trip. This is precious, especially when you stranded at airport with you brothers and cousins Lol~~ (and it won’t happen twice). Life is unpredictable.
I applaud and grateful for Cathay Pasific for their best service to help us for the transit even the delayed because of storm (and not their fault).
