The 2016 Qingdao Holiday - Day 1
Our 8D/7N holiday began on Cathay Pacific flight CX722 from Kuala Lumpur to Hong Kong with transit to Qingdao via DragonAir flight KA954. DragonAir is Cathay Pacific's wholly owned regional airline. It was an inauspicious day because of flight delays as well as missing luggage. We got to our hotel room at midnight without our check-in luggage. Tonight we slept in our day clothes in the Golden Plaza Hotel. We were promised our luggage will arrive the next day afternoon. This delay affected not only our group but all travelers on the KA flight into Qingdao. For some undisclosed reason, none of the luggage was loaded into the plane.
