What were supposed to be peaceful sit-ins in different districts  turned into riots, "with Wong Tai Sin and Harcourt Road seeing the most  intense confrontations as protesters kneel instead of flee, to shield  themselves while tear gas rounds and sponge grenades rain on them,"  according to SCMP

Here's the aftermath. Protesters  chased the men with sticks up the hill and broke the windows of a  residential building. To clarify, unclear if men with sticks are  residents. Overheard some speaking in Cantonese and some speaking  Mandarin. #HongKong pic.twitter.com/aN0bFZoaHH

The airline is the city's flagship carrier. It flies about 34 million passengers every year and serves nearly 200 cities around the world from its hub at Hong Kong's international airport.

Hong Kong Airlines, a smaller carrier, said it has canceled 32 flightsUnited Airlines said its flights were unaffected.

More than 2,300 aviation workers took part in the strike, including  1,200 Cathay cabin crew and pilots, according to the Hong Kong  Confederation of Trade Unions.

Service was suspended for more than an hour Monday morning on the  Airport Express, which is a line that zips people between the airport  and the city center in under 25 minutes. -CNN
