First time on Dragonair and they left me a good impression as compared to other Asian airliners (e.g. China Airlines, Garuda Indonesia). Friendly service crew with above average food quality. In-flight entertainment was also commendable with many choices of recent and classic movies, and dramas. Their provided headset was a disappointment as the audio (even when set to highest volume)...

I suppose Dragon Air is one the best budget Airlines with decent check-in services and F&B. The choice of in flight entertainment was limited, however I had an overnight flight anyway. The leg space was reasonable with prompt in flight attendants. I flew with them 6 times and they were on time on 5. Good Job Dragon Air.

For a short one hour flight they really pushed hard to serve up some sandwichs and pour you a glass of water. No time for anything else but they did manage to put on some just for laughs to keep the passengers entertained for the time being. nice take off and landing and quite ontime

This is a great route from an Asian hub to central Vietnam. The price is good too but best of all is HK Airport duty free and the airport itself is excellent.

Dragonair is run by Cathay Pacific and is good traveller choice. Aircraft was A320 Airbus with nice range of inflight entertainment. A light meal was served. No alcohol or drinks apart from a bottle of water.

First time on Dragon Air and it was a terrible experience after the super service that we received on our flight by Cathay Pacific into Hong Kong from Japan. The only saving grace of this airlines is that it has enough legroom and the entertainment is okay. The food sucks bigtime!!!! I don't know who their caterers are but they...

Booked round-trip HKG-DAD-HKG via Cathay Pacific in conjunction with Sydney-HKG-Sydney flights. Wasn't expecting much from Dragonair but it was a very enjoyable flight. Yes, seats are a little small, the poor people who sat in front of me couldn't recline as I am 6'3" and my knees wouldn't allow for their seat to come back. Styill, no-one complained. The service...
