“Fly Cathay over SAA from JNB”
Review of Cathay Pacific


Reviewed April 4, 2018

Having had a particularly disastrous experience with SAA on more than one occasion, i strongly recommend that if you have a chance to fly Cathay, do it. Seats are way more comfortable and the flight crews each time have been efficient and superb in their service.

I use to travel with Cathay Pacific many time, especially long haul. They have 3 meals before but now cut it to 2 meal. I tried last time from Zurich to Hong Kong, the last meal serve before 7 hours which flight arrive Hong Kong, that's make passenger very hungary when off the flight. The quality of crew still keep their quality standard as well.

Best choice flying from / to Taipei with so many flights during peak [Easter] holiday period. Always meet the expectation with excellent services and warm welcome. Good timing control and seldom delay flying this route. Confident and value-for-money!
