Only Hong Kong CAD (Civil Aviation Dept) banned Garuda operating A330 into/out of HK. Just hour before the announcement from HK's CAD, a Garuda A330 was on the way to HK. The flight was inside HK's FIR when the CAD informed Garuda about the decision to ban the A330. Garuda was given the choice, either diverted to somewhere else or landed at Kai Tak and grounded the A330 there. Garuda decided to divert to Taiwan.
