Cathay pacific Perth hk to LA - comfort?

Hi. Is Cathay pacific Perth to Hong Kong and then to LA a comfortable flight (economy only) ? We are deciding between Cathay and air New Zealand ( obviously via Aukland). If air New Zealand has more leg room seat width and better overall we will change to them. Flew Cathay route over 10 years ago and was terrible for room re seats - has it changed ? Is there a particular airline number should look for? Comfort is paramount to us on economy. Thanks

They are all as bad as each other in economy.

In Economy you are really not going to find much difference between carriers.

I would make a decision based on price and schedule, although remembering that schedules can change if you are booking well in advance.

There's not much difference in economy on any of the airlines so unless you can afford to upgrade I would book the best price/schedule.

Indeed, you will find them more similar than different. Both airlines offer 32" seat pitch on their standard economy product.

The new Cathay economy seat is excellent (for economy). The IFE is superior in Cathay Pacific with many movies and tv shows on a larger tv screen than Air NZ. Overall though, you should expect both airlines to be very similar in product and service.
