Fanfares from Cathay Pacific & Baby born on CX840
Grab your tickets for travel next week or the first week of June. In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a pattern where the fanfares are either for last minute travel the coming week or for travel about 11 weeks out. The CX fanfares are bookable now.
All my recommendations this week are for long haul travel, Johannesburg, London, New York EWR, or Milan. Milan is the priciest but a good price for summer Europe travel. See below.
In related news, a baby was born on CX840 this morning, en route from HKG to New York JFK. It apparently happened shortly after takeoff because the plane was diverted to Tokyo for an emergency landing. Unfortunately the baby did not survive, and passengers were forced to overnight in Tokyo.
This story makes me speculate on what type of people so close to having their baby are flying such long-haul flights, but I do have a friend whose mother was pregnant going to the US for a sole purpose of gaining citizenship for the baby. This will certainly hurt the babies and mothers if any complications arise so please don’t do it. HK citizenship is good enough for the time being and doesn’t require any flying from China.
