Nearly 2,000 Hong Kong residents had been left stranded in Hong Kong and London by the British Airways strike yesterday.

The airline cancelled three London-bound flights and three Hong Kong-bound flights. A Qantas flight from Hong Kong to Sydney which was due to fly tomorrow has also been cancelled.

Affected passengers can rebook their flight or ask for a refund. Local travel agents and Travel Industry Council executive director Joseph Tung Yiu-chung said no Hong Kong tours were stranded. Affected passengers can call British Airways on 22617280 or 28229000 from 9am to 5pm today and tomorrow.
