Schools have been suspended and buses are not operating - if you are going to Hong Kong today, you may experience major delays.

Wonder did SQ put their plane/crew in the risk by choosing to land in HK?
Who make the decision? The operation team or pilot? Think no one board the plane in HK?
It showed for me, but only up to when SQ1 was active again on FR24 for the HKG-SIN leg. It ended up departing almost 20 minutes ahead of schedule before the storm got any worse. In any case, I'm glad SQ1 made it safely despite being the only active flight going thru HKG during that time.

The descent and approach was a roller coaster ride.
I was quite annoyed they didnít just simply retime the flight (wasted my entire Sunday reporting for the flight as scheduled when I knew there was obviously going to be a delay)!

Any insiders here know the risk tolerance for such decisions? Same thing happened to me earlier this year on SQ trying to land in KIX when the weather turned nasty and we went around twice before the pilots decided to detour to Nagoya until the weather improved. Scary as hell as it was very cloudy bouncy night flight

SQ178|18SEP (SIN-SGN) was delayed for about 2.5 hours after the original operating aircraft (9V-SSB) came into contact with the aerobridge at gate E20 during push-back; necessitating an aircraft change to 9V-STY.

STD: 0945
ETD: 1145
ATD: 1214
