Hundreds of travellers were stranded at Hong Kong International Airport as Typhoon Haitang forced dozens of flights to be cancelled. Some passengers complained that airlines had failed to give timely notice of cancellations. By 5pm, 40 departures and 40 arrivals had been called off, according to the Airport Authority. Eleven flights between Hong Kong and Taiwan were delayed. About 30 flights were cancelled between Macau and Taiwan. Flights to Taipei resumed last night, with two China Airlines and three Cathay Pacific flights taking off. 'I called at 10am and was told the flight was still on, but it got cancelled when I came [at about 1pm]. I travelled all the way from Shenzhen,' said Tseng Chen-hung, 36, a Kaohsiong resident holding a China Airlines ticket. A small group of dissatisfied passengers booed at the China Airlines check-in counter.
