The Pier 1st class lounge had been a bit underwhelming with its scotch selections so I moved to red wine for this trip. I arrived in Europe with minimal jet lag and my technique for doing this from Australia was this. Mid morning flight from Australia to HK. Slept 4-5 hours. Layover in HK of 4 hours with moderate alcohol...

For our third trip to Australia I chose Cathay Pacific having been disappointed with Qantas ,and although I really like Emirates transiting Dubai can be tiresome. I appreciate travelling business class is a privilege but everything about this airline felt as if they really cared about the customer experience. The lounges, food, Cabin and crew were all of the highest...

Departure Boarded earlier than time. Took off almost an hour later. Crew There were a lot of them compared to other airlines. Just ok nothing to exceed one’s expectations. Inflight entertainment system Sufficient selection for a short haul. Layout Comfortable with sufficient lavatories Food Oh my. Oh my. When will Cathay Pacific accept the reality that a turnover or pie...

The service from the flight attendants was just brilliant. Unobtrusive and helpful in every way. It was enjoyable travel even though it is such a long way, but then again everywhere in the world is a long way from Australia! The food quality was excellent and the choices fantastic. It was often hard to decide what to eat. Loved it...

The Business Lounge in Melbourne was very disappointing. Dull, windowless, no decor, small, not enough seating, very limited food and drink choices. On board the service was very good and efficient, although my chosen seat was unserviceable and I was moved to last row. Menu was good, entertainment system good, service was very good but food presentation I thought was...

This is the 2nd time we have flown on Cathay Pacific. Many of our friends have traveled on other international flights to the same area and told us of bad issues on their flights. None for us.

Although the flight is 12+ hours there is enough on the entertainment schedule to keep me, a none sleeping flyer, occupied. The cabin crew were very attentive and whenever I needed anything they were quick to help. Would definitely fly with them again

I am a frequent traveller to Singapore. It was surprised to learn that 2 different class of plane when you choose CX. When you travel by morning flight from HK, the plane would be new and more comfortable. Food is more delicious than return flight (from Singapore). For the return journey at night, the plane usually old and the food...

It was a very long flight but the crew service was great. They stayed out of your way when you needed to rest and they gave you attention when you needed them.
