HONG KONG (Nikkei Markets) -- Cathay Pacific Airways warned on Tuesday that the bad dream it has been living over the past several months may have yet to run the full course.

The airline said it continues to see a shortfall in advance bookings to Hong Kong after prolonged anti-government protests crimped travel demand to its home market. The carrier also said that while it is "cautiously optimistic" about its cargo operations overall of 2020, the first half of the year is anticipated to be weak.
