I often take the flight before, and on my way to China, I took it again. The service is nice, and the staff is kind and patient. Only the seat seems not so comfortable as before,maybe I do not know how to adjust it well

Well this is not good - I seriously felt like I was being herded ..... hot sticky aircraft, not clean and food was diabolical. Poor staff members were run off their feet, so found it really hard to help people with no time. Aircraft was hot the whole flight and food all I can say is in 50 years of...

Not usually flying at 7.25am ! This was a good intro to it. From go to woe, the flight was good. Breakfast service was efficient and punctual. Choice of Breakfast was great. Cleanliness of the plane was A+. Short but sweet flight. Well done Cathay Dragon.

I got a shock when it was discovered that my travel document "PAR" was not in order. Thanks to Cathay ground staff, who got me a fresh "PAR" that I was able to proceed on my holiday. On the outward flight a cold packed dinner was served and the packets were not cleared till the flight ended. But on the...
