I nearly didn't get the A350, I planned this from europe to go on it. I first found out about the aircraft being stuck in manila when i climbed the mountain in hong kong to film it arriving 2 days before my flight. So today at HK airport, the aircraft still wasn't showing up.
The flight showed up on FR24 at 12pm and my flight was at 4pm so i hoped and hoped. So then i ask the ground crew what aircraft was showing, first one said the normal aircraft is A333 and then later she said it showed A359.
I did self serve check-in, that made me feel uneasy. Why don't they just have the staff to do it, I worry that they will lose their jobs.
