Flew in Cathay on the way back. The inflight staff were amazing starting with snacks, drinks and anything in between. They never even thought it was a chore everytime we pressed the call button. They even went out of the way and gave a cup of vegetarian noodles(they mostly have chicken). Good food with ice cream and good choice of...

We have flown with this airline to Europe twice in the last three years and found their service exemplary. We couldn't fault them.

Delay around 1.5 hours; Food are ok, Dragonair's ground staff and fight attendant are much better Cathay Pacific, though they are the same company.

Quite a while since I have flown Cathay Pacific, but I was a bit disappointed overall. I like the single window seating in business class, but I don't like the retractable armrest on the outside which had to be down for takeoff and landing. The seat was quite comfortable apart from that. I also found the the screen and remote...

A two month trip of a lifetime is a big planning excersise, especially when your organising 9 flights and sixteen hotels or apartments. The flight organisation was very easy as my wife and I wanted to spend Christmas in AU with our daughter and then visit South Island NZ before heading back to the Uk via Hong Kong. I can’t...

I recently flew to Hong Kong with Cathay Pacific for a family wedding. The flight was most enjoyable, with excellent, tasty food served by very attentive cabin crew and a very comprehensive selection of films and tv videos to help pass the eleven and a half hours flight duration. If you have to do long haul, this is the way...

Always been a pleasure to fly with Cathay Pacific. The new Airbus A350 was a wonderful plane. Spacious seats and legroom. The flight to Bangkok was great with all well-taken care of by the crew. However, due to the faster return time back to Sg (maybe due to a new and better plane), the service was a rush. But overall,...
