Got burnt by the Oasis? BA is here to help.
With the amazing HK$1 billion Oasis Hong Kong bankruptcy that just happened, leaving 700 employees jobless and 30,000 travelers screwed – its nice to see that someone had the pull to lend a hand. British Airways is picking up some of these poor traveler’s woes:
British Airways is pleased to offer an alternative for Oasis Hong Kong passengers wishing to travel home, in response to todayâ€™s announcement that Oasis Hong Kong has ceased flying operations.
British Airways is offering customers booked to travel with Oasis a one way fare of HKD1,250
Tickets are available for purchase by contacting British Airways directly on 2822 9000. Customers must present their Oasis ticket confirmation and ID to British Airwaysâ€™ Hong Kong office; 24/F, Jardine House, One Connaught Road, Central, Hong Kong.
No news at the BA Hong Kong site but sure if you call the number above they can help you out.
Cathay Pacific also has a deal but its filling up fast.
UPDATE: We just received this from British Airways:
Owing to an overwhelming response from Oasis passengers wishing to travel home, British Airways can confirm that all of its three daily flights to London Heathrow from Hong Kong are now fully booked for the remainder of April. Seats to Hong Kong from London remain available to Oasis passengers for HKD1,250.
In its continued commitment to see passengers return home, British Airways is pleased to announce that it is offering a one-way fare via Beijing or Shanghai for HKD2,500 (excluding taxes and surcharges) in its World Traveller cabin for all departures up to 30 April 2008, subject to availability.
