"Waitlisted" on a flight out of Taiwan

Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

Hi all, just reporting back to let you know how it went. After several phone calls to Etihad via their American number, as of Saturday morning all three legs of my trip are now confirmed.

Apparently because the problematic flight was being handled by Cathay Pacific, Etihad had to put a request in to "e-services" to get things sorted out, and that was supposed to take 24-48 hours (actually it was a bit longer than that, but whatever).

Big relief.

Incidentally, @EtihadHelp never replied to my tweet.

Glad to see that everything worked out. For anyone facing the same situtation, I suggest following up by email through their Hong Kong agent at -

Nice one, sorry the tweet tip didnt work out.

Hope your luggage arrives in Edinburgh ok. I wouldn't count on it though.

I wonder if this is all linked to the Taoyuan runway delays and the airlines are worried that transfers through Hong Kong aren't going to line up.

Why go to someone's office and waiste a half day; when they have a phone and you could just make a simple phonecall in a few minutes. I don't get it.
