Had a return flight from London to Vietnam with Cathay Pacific. First time with this airline. Lots of choice from entertainment, food was better than I thought it would be...some other airlines give toothbrushes and toothpaste and other staff for long flights...maybe some more extra would have been nice!

In comparison to BA, Cathay were dreadful. No ability to pre book seats, even with a child meant no space, we were annoying for other customers and a genuinely uncomfortable flight on an airline that I had heard great things about. Shame

I found the experience to be fairly satisfactory. Seemed to be more leg room than other planes. Food was not bad as far as airline food goes.

Certainly the far east airlines are in different world, from their service, their staff are wonderful and so many other airlines could learn so much from them on customer care.

TV was big. Good movie selections. Food was ok. The plane arrived on time although there was a 40-50 mins delay in taking off. Seats could be more spacious.

Quite comfortable (as far as Economy can be comfortable). There was a bit more space for the legs compared to many other airlines, the service was very friendly and the food was better than average. Hong Kong itself is ideal for a stay-over.

It was a couple of years ago we had flew Cathay Pacific and the experience was not if we had been missing something. The last years we used quite a lot European airlines for the easy connections. Going back Cathay, it totally went down expectations. The service on board was below "used to be", i explain: no travel kit anymore,...
