Hun­dreds of pas­sen­gers trav­el­ing to and from Hong Kong and Tai­wan Taoyuan In­ter­na­tional Air­port were af­fected by Typhoon Du­juan, re­sult­ing in flight de­lays that ranged as long as 48 hours.

Ac­cord­ing to lo­cal media, af­ter wait­ing for 48 hours, Cathay Pa­cific Air­lines’ pas­sen­gers were com­pen­sated with NT$ 4,500 each, re­sult­ing in com­plaints about each hour of wait­ing amount­ing to less than NT$100.

A pas­sen­ger said to re­porters, “Many of us are of­fice work­ers. We came dur­ing the Mid-Au­tumn Fes­ti­val hol­i­day, and we had to re­turn yesterday or this morn­ing.”

China Air­lines stated yesterday that Tai­wan Taoyuan In­ter­na­tional Air­port had a lim­ited ca­pac­ity since it op­er­ates on a sin­gle run­way, while there were many in­bound and out­bound flights. They ex­pressed their apolo­gies to pas­sen­gers af­fected by the typhoon.
