Flew numerous times with Cathay Pacific in the past couple of years, I would say that this is one of the best airlines I have taken.
The service is very efficient, very similar to the nature of Hong Kong people.
The flight attendants tend to be not as warm and chatty as some other Asian airlines, but I see this as a plus after having flew with them a few times and I know my way around.
Their new business seats are one of the best in business class, vastly better than their old reverse herring bone seats that were very claustrophobic.
Meal were typical of business class, but I particularly like their orange juice.
