Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Softer seats more wholesome videos"
Pros: "The seat space, and the ability to recline the seat was surprising."
Cons: "It is what it is."
Pros: "Plane from Hong Kong to Chicago was full but the crew did their best to meet everyone's needs. The food was very good."
Cons: "Tried to check in online but the system would not allow me to submit my data. So check-in was not as smooth as it could be."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Very attentive and great service. Wonderful flat bed seats"
Pros: "The seats are old .. the plane is old .. the flight was delayed 2 hours, food even in first class lounge is not apetising the menu has been cut significantly.. lettuce and tomato say that they are not sourced from China .. must be from India as the quality sucks"
Cons: "On time is an expectation that if you travel from HK to BKK on CX that it is always delayed .. common knowledge for people in Thailand.. this is bad"
Cons: "The economy toilets were in a disgusting state half-way through the flight and a hostess told me not use Business Class toilets even though I was in Premoum Economy. The economy toilet was clearly a health hazard. Also, we were woken up for our 2nd meal 6 hours into the flight , with 8 hours to go"
Pros: "flight attendants were very sweet."
Cons: "Food, late both from and back ways."
Pros: "Good customer service."
Cons: "Could have used one more snack and more water although should have maybe asked. Dinner was good though."
Pros: "The movie selection + the crew was friendly."
Cons: "There were kids who were not well behaved. Their parents would not correct them, neither did the crew. There was a kid screaming and talking very loud behind me, while everyone was sleeping. I was unable to sleep on the flight, even with ear plugs. The kid sitting next to me was getting Play-doh everywhere, on me, the floor and all over the seats. He was also kicking the seat in front of him and his mother would not correct him. It would be helpful for the crew to say something to the parents, as some parents do not believe in discipline. The vegan food was very good on the flight to Hong Kong, but on the flight to Chicago it was bland. I was still very hungry after eating + did not get protein in the first meal. With the seat in front of me reclined all the way back, my knees were touching the back of the seat, my legs were swollen and in a lot of pain after the flight."
Pros: "Smooth flight and service."
Cons: "Only one water closet was available and there were no amenities given such as socks or toothbrush as other international flights provide."
Cons: "Cancelation process was too poor customer service was also too poor. And high cancellation fee. Customer service representatives did not tell me when I am going get the money back and also weather my ticket is also canceled or not."
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "We were sitting at te back and it was very cold. Not sure why. They ran out of chicken for lunch."
Cons: "No extra blanket was available."
Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Efficient service."
Cons: "The sound jack on my seat was dysfunctional and the sound kept cutting out unless I had my hand on the jack for 12 hours. It was CX806 flight."
Pros: "I am frequent air traveler that logs about 100k miles a year and this is the first time I felt like writing a review about an airline. I traveled with my 4 year old son on this trip. Excellent service, high quality food options and flight amenities. I really enjoyed the food as did my son. My son left his backpack behind on the first leg and the airline staff retreived it and delivered it to the lounge in less than 15 minutes. I was astounded and had almost given up on seeing the bag again, given my experience with other airlines in the past. This is going to be airline of choice for future trips!"
Pros: "I love the food, service and comfort I want make sure to fly with Cathay Pacific in my future flights. It’s all excellent! And I will probably recommend it to my family and friends."
Cons: "Lacking in inflight service after mid flight. Leaving 7 hours of nothing! So you arrive hungry both ways."
Pros: "Cathay was able to get my luggage off the plane that I missed. They also got me out of Hong Kong later that night with a quick stop at LAX before heading home to Boston. They really went the extra mile for this weary traveler."
Pros: "I liked the movie selection they had for entertainment—many choices. Most of the staff were very friendly, but there was a bit of a language barrier which made it a little difficult to ask for something. They are also attentive, so if you press your call button, you don’t have to wait half an hour until someone helps you."
Cons: "Most of the meals were awful. I barely ate on the flights (except the dessert), but how good can airplane food be really... The seats are pretty tight and uncomfortable. They are too upright, making it very difficult to sleep. On one of their planes, the seats didn’t recline at all. I recommend paying a bit more for extra leg room ($150) or flying business or first class even (for long flights)."
Pros: "As usual, the crew was great and the planes and pilots are great also. CP is always punctual, as well."
Cons: "I'm 6-4 , so I enjoy any extra space I can get. For this reason, I like the CP planes that seem to have more space than competitors. However, when the person in front of me reclines for the ENTIRE flight, my screen is too low to watch, I cannot use my try to eat and its like having someone laying in your lap.........it should not be allowed ( reclining)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for one hour."
Pros: "Movie choices."
Cons: "The weather delay was understandable - boarded flight 19 hours later than scheduled, but then there was a problem with the engine, that delayed us further by 5 hours. We had to sit on the aircraft for 5 extra hours on top of what was already an extra long flight. 21 hours on the plane - and there was no coffee! Being on a plane for that long, you should be able to get a cup of coffee. Staff seemed annoyed as well and were overall a bit rude. Wine tasted like acid."
Pros: "Flight staff was awesome. They were all so thoughtful and extremely positive. It made a long trip so much more enjoyable!"
Cons: "Nothing! Super pleasant experience"
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and attentive."
Pros: "As usual, the Cathay Pacific staff were awesome and very professional. Never hesitated to serve the passengers with infants/kids and elderly people. My overall experience was great!! Thank you to all staff!!"
Pros: "The crew was very organized. I travelled with a wheel chair assist friend, they made sure we were comfortable. We arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The food choices are well thought off. My only concern is the tenderness of the beef."
Pros: "I guess I can't expect much from what seems to be a low budget airline. The food was OK and the movie selection was excellent. I didn't have any issues with boarding or baggage check in. There was a mix of good and bad flight staff. Sadly, the staff in bad moods were servicing me."
Cons: "The bad mood in-flight staff and the uncomfortable seats. During boarding, I asked one of the staff if I can have a window seat because I have motion sickness and aisle seats make me feel ill. She looked at me flustered and said all seats are booked and that I'll be Ok with the aisle seat. On a different CP flight, a different staff was helping a couple switch with other passengers so they can sit next to each other. That would have been nice if they did that for me when I asked for a window seat."
Pros: "The tv had decent selection. Crew were nice. Priced good"
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic, after standing in line then they call for other rows and my place in line didn't matter it was a free for all rushing to get in line. No water.....they took my water and have high blood pressure so need water and they don't give enough. Food is mediocre"
Pros: "Good flight. Crew busy but pleasant."
Cons: "Difficulty hearing announcements - I have a hearing deficit - so it was hard to know what was going on. Wish there was a coffee/tea service before landing after 15-hour flight to Chicago. Crew kept windows dark until 1/2 hour before landing."
Pros: "I like most of everything from this airline, Cathay Pacific."
Cons: "bathrooms should be cleaned more often"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Food was ok and was served very late"
Pros: "We really appreciated the nice customer service we received from the check in desk!! We were able to upgrade and get our seats together- thank you! Also Cathay Pacific gave us our boarding passes straight through to our final destination which made it possible for us to narrowly make our flight once we were in Chicago. Very grateful for this."
Cons: "Our airplane had technical problems and our flight left 2 hours late, which made it very tight to make our connection in Chicago. This was very hard. We just wish that the delay hadn't been so long."
Cons: "We missed our connection because Cathay was delayed. They booked us in a nice hotel in Hong Kong but failed to reimburse us for food as promised. In fact, no one was able to prove us with proper information on how to handle refunds. The next flight was late over an hour. No reason provided. Overall, no one knows what's up and any inconveniences are the customer's problem to deal with."
Pros: "Most comfortable bed... slept almost 7 hours on the flight. Food, service and everything else was excellent..."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of... They had it all covered."
Pros: "Amazing flight! Continue to serve pleasantly to all passengers"
Pros: "It was a typical economy flight. Very long and nothing spectacular or terrible."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed extremely frantic. They need to relax. I know it was lot of people to take care of but do things to make it easier. Don't let people bring 2 large bags EACH onto flights. Bring a garbage bag around instead of a tiny 5 inch X 5 inch tray when you are collecting 100s? of people's garbage. When departing a plane, I never have seen so much trash and nonsense all over the floor. Bringing a garbage bag around would definitely eliminate a majority of that, the tray was extremely impractical for such a large amount of passengers."
Pros: "It was a packed flight and I had the window seat, but I remained seated the entire time.. The selection of entertainment was awesome.."
Cons: "the long flight.."
Cons: "The food was garbage and almost not edible . I would feel guilty feeding it to my dog. Even the peanuts sucked"
Pros: "I've taken other long-haul flights where it seems the flight attendants were serving food or drinks every couple of hours, leaving little time to sleep peacefully. But the Cathay staff, I think, balanced it well. Over 15 hrs, I was only woken up 2-3x for food. Was nice to be able to sleep without being disturbed too much."
Cons: "Way too cramped in the economy section. I'm a small guy, but even for me it was cramped."
Cons: "The service is kinda slow to respond"
Pros: "Terrific first class and business club in Hong Kong. Great flight crew. Everything else also excellent. Keep up the excellent work."
Pros: "Our connecting flight was running late due to weather and Cathay pacific airlines were waiting for us at security to take us to the airplane that was waiting ! Wow ! Amazing service!!! So grateful for their amazing kindness !!!"
Pros: "The service was outstanding, the food actually tasted good, and not "good for airline food," just good. The seats were comfortable; lots of entertainment options and boarding was run super efficiently. I'd fly this airline anytime."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "First and international flight - the seats are cramped, the meals are extremely 'blan' and the entertainment selection was not very good."
Cons: "Needs more leg room"
Pros: "Everything was good I didn't have any complaints about the service or flight time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "In entertainment no good Hindi options were there"
Pros: "Same as above"
