Especially on the flight from Hong Kong to Amsterdam you can sleep very well in business class as the plane leave around 1 AM and the chair folds into a flat 180 degrees bed which is comfortable lenght. Breakfast at arrival is too early as it starts 2 hours before arrival and therefore at around 4 am arrival time. Love...

I would like express my huge disappointment on my entire experience with Cathay Pacific on this particular flight. I was on a flight with my partner from Dubai to Hong Kong after travelling around Europe for 6 weeks. We were on our way home back to Australia. So as you can imagine, we are very tired from all the travelling...

I haven’t flown long haul for 40 years & wasn’t sure what to expect! All I can say is that it was a very positive flying experience, particularly the food which came around regularly, with a choice of 3 & was all lovely, accommodating everyone’s needs. It was a long flight but the pillow & blanket made it a comfortable...

Wow, its been a number of years since I traveled with Cathy Pacific. Check in Heathrow. Excellent staff very helpful, I arrived four hours early for the flight as I regard Heathrow as one of the worst airports in the world, disorganized, long, queues security staff with a bad attitude (should have done better at school). Cathy Pacific. Like most...

It’s been a while since I fly with CX, comfortable flights with good seats and the Inflight entertainment was enjoying. Able to keep me entertained for 3 hrs. Food was light and they served my favourite Hagan Daz Strawberry ice cream. Yummy!

Our flight from Hong Kong to Sydney was quite good. We did a big trip around Asia and flew with Cathay Pacific most of the way. All of our flights with them were excellent except for our final flight home. My husbands seat kept sliding back even when he didnt push the recline button. Mine would not stay reclined unless...

The seats were uncomfortable in the A350 although we had exit door seats. It has been first time that we flew a long haul flight where the crew did not come to serve drinks at all during the night. Although we flew Lufthansa from Munich to Hong Kong, we did not buy anything in Hong Kong, at check in they...

I had decided to go with Cathay Pacific after hearing ample positive feedback about the airlines, but unfortunately I am disappointed to say after my experience I am unable to list a single positive thing. For starters, the service of the cabin crew. The crew was inhospitable, moody, in a rush, and it was a rarity to see one of...
