Our flight was fine, although the service was a bit slow at times - I had to wait quite a while to get a drink and then another time at drink service we were actually missed. It took 3 tries to get some water with ice. Otherwise the crew were fine and the level of comfort was adequate. The in...

Although CX is not my first choice for travelling long-haul, it have to say it was pretty good for this five hour flight to Bali. Check-in was smooth and fast, the seats were comfortable and as I was travelling with a companion, I didn't have to sit next to a stranger! The food was fresh and tasty and the service...

My husband & I took a Cathay flight from Vancouver to Hong Kong on June 24, 2018. When we reached the check-in counter at Vancouver airport, we couldn't believe how very long the queue was. It was so long & so far away from the check-in counter that I had to ask someone in the queue that this line was...

We decided to purchase extra leg room in economy for our long flight to SG. Extra leg room was only applicable to LAX to HKG. We paid for extra 180USD per trip, but so disappointed with the experience. We sat on B & C and A( non-leg room), the seat nearest to the exit was not considered a leg room,...

Wonderful airline, very efficient, friendly and comfortable. I was at first very skeptical, but I would recommend this airline to everyone and anyone I meet. Really worth it. Everything goes smooth and they are very professional.

The staff at Check in helped us with our bag tags and got us checked in nice and fast. The flight was a little late on take off due to an extra security bag check half way down the loading ramp. (I don't think it was Cathay's idea but it did take more time to board.) The time was made...

Cathy Pacific is a good airline for business class flights, particularly because of the value compared to some of the excellent middle-east airlines such as Qatar Airways. The staff is friendly and nice, and the F&B in business class is very good. The seat layout is nice with the TV off to the side, but we prefer the TV on...

Staff very friendly; Sufficient Legroom even for economy class; New passenger display panel being more user friendly, e.g. Displaying useful info - Seat No. / Fasten Seat Belt; Vast selection of western / eastern / classic / latest release movies; Food is average (breakfast is better than dinner), now serving Movenpick ice cream as dessert

4 of us travelled from LGW to Hong Kong in the afternoon of 30/6/18 The legroom was fabulous, much more than Virgin or BA Premium Economy. Check in was easy and we were given priority through security which was so much quicker. The air team were great, attentive and helpful, inflight entertainment was really good and we were all very...
