LIST OF RESTRICTED/CONTROLLED/BANNED ITEMS ON CATHAY
ALLOWANCES IN REGARDS TO SPECIAL BAGGAGE ITEMS
- Michel Perrin:
I flew from Kansai to Paris via Hong Kong. Everything went smooth. So nice to have the feeling you are welcome on board. Comparing with some Asian carriers, you note that C class seats are more comfortable than on some airlines. Aircraft are cleaner than some Chinese airlines. IFE is more western-oriented than other. Drinks are adapted to British taste. Staff is not robotic.

I flew from Hong Kong to New York JFK. The inbound flight from CCU arrived on time and I was able to make a smooth transfer at HKG. I found the security transfer check at HKG to be among the most civilized and rarely crowded. Before boarding, the staff at tables inspected, perfunctorily, the carry-on bags of all passengers. The flight arrived on schedule. Boeing 777 cabin and its 1-2-1 herringbone layout with fully flat seats are my favorite. It offers spaciousness and privacy. The entertainment system offered a large collection of films that could be accessed on an easy to use the control pad. Good selection of entrees, wines, and various snacks, bathrooms kept clean, and attentive flight attendants made the flight a very pleasant experience. At JFK’s Terminal 8 used by Oneworld, passport control was smooth – I used the automated passport reader and was out of the terminal in no time. Cathay Pacific delivered a very satisfying flying experience and will be my first choice when I travel on this route again.

I flew from Gatwick to Hong Kong. Having flown this airline on many occasions, this was the first time that I really enjoyed the trip. I’m not sure if it was because the aircraft was new or if it was because the in-flight entertainment system was the best that I have come across or because I had an open seat next to me. The crew was really great in the economy, but all in all, it was a 5-star experience.
