Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "It was my first time frying with Cathay Pacific the flight was okay, food wasn't that good. I don't want to compare with the other, my opinion should have more variety or snack between meals since 15 hours flight. Thank you for listening!"
Cons: "Unprofessional boarding stuff in jfk ,not helpful & one of them was really rude.but cabin crew are nice . I will never recommend to anyone & I don’t think so I will travel again cathey pacific airlines.thanks"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed and then cancelled NO COMMUNICATION WHATSOEVER as to what was going on. We finally got rebooked in another flight on a Chinese airline at 2:30am so we had to stay at jfk for a total of about 24 hours with no compensation for our time and troubles. Horrible. Experience!"
Pros: "Crew was really good and the seating was quite okay"
Cons: "Seating distance"
Pros: "The food was amazing, and the cabin crews were all very nice people. I would love to use Cathay Pacific in my next trip. Also, I loved that they provide a lot of diverse movies from all over the world, along with good music lists."

Pros: "Food& Beverage :)"
Cons: "Ok perfect will do it again"

Pros: "Cathay is a good Asian airline, and if you compare it to any American-based airlines, Cathay is exceptional. Staff are generally very friendly and helpful. Seats and food on economy are pretty good, as far as economy goes. Entertainment system is updated and offers a good variety of options."
Cons: "They are a bit strict on carry on luggage weight but not that big of a deal."
Pros: "Entertainment system is decent with good selection of movies."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Seats, entertainment selection, crew, food; & bathrooms were kept clean"
Cons: "Still hate the long flight"
Pros: "Excellent and attentive staff, great food, clean bathrooms (by airline standards anyway), fantastic entertainment! It's a great value for the price, especially for coach class!"
Cons: "Not much to dislike. I just was a little bothered by the fact that I had purposely chosen to have my boarding pass be digital (to save the environment), but to do this you have to check in online. As a result, they can't verify your passport (something they need to do in person). So when I got to the gate they had to check my passport and then made me use a new, printed boarding pass. Not a huge deal, but just something that bothered me."
Pros: "FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED"
Cons: "Airline could have have notified us the flight was cancelled via email before we got to the airport. THEY DID NOT. We had to wait in general airport area for SIX HOURS, before we could check in to new flight. We planned trip to arrive to unfamiliar destination during day time. We arrived at MIDNIGHT! AWFUL!!!!"
Pros: "This flight was 16 hours long was very very cold for about 5 to 6 hours needed jackets extra blankets very uncomfortable for that time frame"

Pros: "Fast and on time"
Pros: "The flight attendants were pleasant and so was the flight."

Pros: "I flew from NY to Phuket via Cathay Pacific which is a 22 hr flight! The crew was pleasant and friendly and took excellent care of my family and I. I would fly with them again anytime."

Pros: "Entertainment was good. There was a lot of movies to choose from."

Pros: "Food and attentive staff"
Pros: "The staffs were ok. They did everything on the limited power they were given."

Cons: "... Service was awful during the flight, and the second flight was delay for long time ...."
Pros: "...except the plane was dirty (dirt all over the ceiling above me, long black hairs on the pillow they gave me) and one of the stewardesses had a bad attitude with me. Otherwise it was great."
Cons: "Plane not clean"
Cons: "You have to be there 3hrs before the flight to guarantee they won't resell your seat. I was at the terminal an hour prior at 9am when there was no line to check in or even at security but they turned me away. I rescheduled my flight and had to pay a lot extra to do so. I stayed at the airport to make sure I wouldn't miss it and the crew doesn't even start setting up until an hour prior... they don't start boarding until 30 minutes prior.... so they 100% sold my seat and then charged me to rebook it. They turned me away when I could have been at the gate 50 minutes prior, well before boarding"
Cons: "Broke my luggage"
Pros: "The service was very nice and the ice cream with meals was a nice touch"
Cons: "Plane was a bit dirty - there were big dirt streaks on the ceiling above me, and I saw more on the ceiling on the other side of the plane as well."
Pros: "Route and travel time. The food taste good."
Cons: "Bathrooms need to be cleaned in between flights; meal didn't have any condiments included ; they don't provide a toiletry bag with basics of toothbrush and socks; airplane needs to be CLEANED.. we found dental floss and empty containers inside the seat pocket."

Pros: "Helpful crew"
Cons: "Cramped seating. Very little leg room"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Food. Need veggies"
Pros: "Unlimited drink options throughout duration of flight; great selection of moviesmotr"
Cons: "Seat layout not very spacious; only 2 full meals offered on a 14 hr flight"
Pros: "Happy to have goodnight on the flight. Was scared to fly on such a long flight because I'm a decent sized guy. I was even more afraid when I realized I was out in a middle seat. However, the seats are relatively spacious, even in economy and my knees weren't hitting the back of the seat in front of me. I also appreciated that we could get up to grab water or juice at any time during the flight."
Cons: "Boarding could be more organized."
Pros: "Landed on time"
Cons: "Boarded with delay"
Pros: "The flights overall were great. The crew were very professional and personable from when I checked in to when the plane landed. Definitely will be using Cathay Pacific again"

Pros: "Like the upgrade to economy premium."
Cons: "The smell of the bathroom since the seat was near toilet"
Pros: "Everything the movies the airline staff and having the electric plugs to charge ur phone"
Pros: "Clean and comfortable"
Pros: "good experience."
Pros: "I had a great time in Cathay. Selection of menu was slightly above average and the movies were updated. For the price I paid, I think I got more than I expected."

Pros: "Fast boarding; efficient service; on time arrival"
Pros: "service, organized, seats, movie options, temperature"
Pros: "Cathay Airways offer spacious leg room and a very polite and helpful staff. Cathay prefer to board passenger based on their sitting locations than their ticket class which makes more sense as the last rows board first and don't clog up the plane. Cathay crew kept pumping out noodles and snacks during the flight. it almost felt like being on an airborne restaurant!"
Cons: "Nothing negative."
