I managed to find 2 tickets in November (one from Cathay Pacific and the other from United and both of them cost relatively the same price. United has a stopover for 1 hr. and 45 min in Chicago O'Hare while Cathay Pacific has a fuel/tech stop in Anchorage before continuing to Hong Kong.
Which airline would you say is better?
Also, is the Hong Kong international Airport an efficient airport? I heard bad things about how it is not up-to-date and sees a lot of plane crashes.
