The crew members were extremely helpful and accommodating.

There was no hand soap in any of the bathrooms.That means no one on the plane, including the crew members, could wash their hands for the duration of the 14-hour flight. Disgusting! I sked one of the crew members to refill the soap, but it appears that they had none.

How the hell are you gonna charge me OVER DOUBLE the cost to switch my flight???? That's OUTRAGEOUS!!! And to have to wait up to FOUR MONTHS to get not even a 50% refund??? Ridiculous. None of their help desk lines work, and just send you to other phone numbers that don't work. Ridiculous and unprofessional!

First of all, I understand how their business model works. Hence no delay is a big plus. Also the food is decent and customer service is OK. Their movie collections are sick too!!! You must to check them out!

No cell phone during the flight. The way they assigned seats i.e if you are a random customer, they will assign you to all the way to the back or middle seat. Not to mention their website is basically useless if you are a foreigner.

Flight delay was not announce until boarding time. Such chaos!! at 1:00 AM. Rescheduled the next 24hrs. I was lucky to live within one hour of the airport. Next day, after boarded the plane, had to sit inside plane for 2 1/2 hours until the plane takes off. It was not a good experienced, even though they gave us a voucher for 75.$

Delayed flight after waiting for hours in Hongkong. The male flight attendant was inefficient. Did not check on passenger’s concern even after it was brought to his attention. Simple request for water took forever to arrive. Did not like meal so requested a cup of noodle instead but the noodle never arrived. It is stated in their menu that snacks like cup of noodle is available through out the flight but only when you stand up and get it from them. Very poor service. I will never fly Cathay Pacific again. That will be the first and the last.

Brand new A350-900 airplane. Better movie selection. Nicer bathrooms.

No more advanced seat selection except for an additional $180. No more serving wine and beer with dinner although I think its still available on request. A lot more screaming kids on the flight. Cathay is becoming more like the budget Chinese airlines. Sad.

Nothing

I’m still not there. They had me go to the airport 5 hours early to get a different flight cuz theirs was delayed then after not being able to make those flights carrying my 5 bags to 3 different terminals they said just go on their delayed flight and cuz they had over 80 people going on to Manila that they would hold the last flight there but when we landed we were informed going to a hotel and no compensation for it. I am extremely pissed off

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
