Made it to Hong Kong fine. We had an 8 hour layover in Vancouver because Lorne was overly cautious in allowing plenty of time in the event that weather or equipment issues might delay the flight from Courtenay to Vancouver. Left Vancouver on Cathay Pacific at nearly 3:00am Thursday morning and, 14 hours later arrived in Hong Kong. We are in a nice room at the Regal Airport Hotel in Hong Kong which we have for 12 hours and will then board Cathay Pacific for another 13 hour flight to Johannesburg. Good thing we are flying premium economy with wider seats, more legroom and more tilt. Quite comfortable. Phyllis slept at least 6 hours after we took off from Vancouver.
