Hi all, I flew from Da Nang to Newark on Cathay in March 2019 (from the error fare posted; thanks for that). My return was from Newark to Da Nang March 1, 2020 (stopover in Hong Kong) but was changed by Cathay to JFK to Da Nang March 2, 2020 (stopover in Honk Kong). Due to the coronavirus in Asia I dont want to travel then. They say they agree to let me change it but that since the return portion has to be by a year after the initial part of the trip that I would have to travel by March 19, 2020. Is there any answer I can give to this. Ive called Cathay twice but received the same answer. Should I ask to speak to a manager, try HUCA or am I out of luck? Any advice would be appreciated. I need to figure this out this week as my flight is meant to leave on March 2.

I think it's far worse given how easily it spreads, but regardless airlines/countries are making it much more difficult to travel.

Video dump.

From 12 days ago but still puts COVID19 into perspective:

I am flying to Israel next week for a family simcha. My boss mentioned to me that HR has been discussing what to do about people who travel overseas, and it's possible that they might make me work from home when I get back. Anyone else's company considering something like this?
