Has anyone had any experience being denied boarding due to the 150,000 per week arrival cap or know how it is enforced?
I need to make an urgent trip to Australia as my grandpa is in ICU but I’m worried about being denied boarding due to the arrival caps on my way back. When Australia had caps people were denied boarding left, right and centre.
Fwiw I never heard about this happening for Taiwan. People having trouble finding flights, yeah (@afterspivak maybe had this issue?), but if you had a flight - and the route continued to exist - you were fine.
Yep. I’m not sure how it worked exactly. I read of a few people taking the government to court for infringing on a citizens right to return their own country. Not sure what the outcome was. A lot of people had their flights change on them several times and denied boardings etc.
Perhaps. Although I also understand the caution after seeing airport debacles unfold elsewhere: in Amsterdam, in London, in Toronto . . . even Sapporo suddenly cancelled some incoming flights as they simply did not have enough staff as they try to ramp up again!
I am not sure that’s their official reason for this quota, the quota would be imposed by the airport authority or the Ministry of Transportation, not by the CECC.
They are still using covid as justification.
I do agree airports in Europe were in a mayhem last summer (Amsterdam in particular, it took me 3 hrs to clear security and then flight delayed by 2 hrs), but that’s due to staff shortages, I don’t see a particularly severe staff crunch here.
Took a flight today (To Japan), it was I guess 25 percent full, and airport was very few people (also KHH Airport a few weeks ago) so I guess no where near the caps. Now the EU, that is very different. Also a note was surprise how few tourists it seems on my Taiwan to Japan flight, more business travellers from the look, like me.
