yeah that sucks, I think that was around the time they had an issue with all their air carriers suddenly decide they would not take any packages from HK because of a potential fire risk. there was a knee jerk reaction to something or other..
My last HK order came via malaysia air, and the leading theory for why their other plane disappeared as a cargo hold fire.
I futz with V2s, V3s and V6s. I could be wrong... but probably, most likely not, as far as I know.
