From London Gatwick via HK to Manila and back. Fast and friendly check in at Gatwick Airport, no oneworld lounge so use lounge 1, not too bad but limited food range. I arrived 40 mins before boarding A350 and to my biggest surprise there is no waiting to board you can just go straight on. The new plane feels so...More
Spent the extra for a Premium Economy flight and was not disappointed. Depending on the aircraft you are flying, mine was (737-300ER) spacious with a wider seat than economy with more recline in the back. Considerable larger than Economy. For a 12 hour flight extra comfort was important to me. Smaller cabin section, with a 2 -3-2 configuration. Actually got...More

We flew on the first leg to Europe on Cathay. Seats were satisfactory with full lie flat. However if you wish to sleep there is a ridge that doesn't fit comfortably. I think airlines should have a mattress to cope with this. As it was a flight from Asia and most of the other passengers were Asian it was very...More
Well I was looking fwd to a pleasant flight home. This Premium Economy choice is not up to standard and was poor at best. The service was rushed and not friendly, in fact when they ran out of the meal choice (apparently common) you became the problem. They wanted to get rid of problem quickly and so gave an economy...More
We flew economy and paid extra for an exit row. The exit row is well worth the extra fee. I booked these tickets through the airline by phone, I am not sure if it is easy to get these seats through an online booking. We had access to the restrooms and aisles without bothering anyone. Also, we were able to...More
Cathay economy seats don't recline, making for a very uncomfortable long haul flight. The design is to stop having the seat in front come into your space, but this is a flawed argument as then you cannot recline either.
Check-in went smoothly. No queue at the Business line which was nice. The Business class was in the plane nice. Staff is very friendly, food is great and the seats in business class are really comfortable. Since I my flight took 12 hours it was nice to be able to lay flat and just sleep. The food is well presented...More
Food was good, more legroom than Qantas (and others), planes in good condition. Only hitch on the 4 legs of return flights was a delayed flight in Hong Kong. Was supposed to be 2h50m actually ended up closer to 5 hours.
I use to fly with Cathay Pacific to and from Japan, and I never feel disappointed with their service. Very professional staff, reliable, safe and reasonable price.
