Last week's move to cut its route to Los Angeles left Hong Kong Airlines airline with only a route between Hong Kong and Vancouver as evidence of its once big plans for transpacific travel and, as some suspected, a recent schedule update now shows this route is also facing an uncertain future.
After flying its last flights between Hong Kong and San Francisco at the beginning of October, Hong Kong Airlines has now announced that it will be closing down its route to Los Angeles from February 2020.
Hong Kong airlines is following up its recent announcement of flights between Hong Kong and Los Angeles (due to start in December) by scheduling service to San Francisco in 2018. The Hong Kong based airline launched its first route to North America earlier this year when it started flying to Vancouver at the end of June with its Airbus A350 aircraft. Now, with LA service due to start 18 December the airline has published its planned schedule for San Francisco.
