The flight attendants were all in their mid-twenties to early thirties, immaculately coiffed, had beautifully applied makeup and tailored uniforms and were very attentive. Like it used to be in the good old days of travel in the U.S.

As always, leg room was at a premium.

Nice wide seats, well run flight. Lots of food served, though very mixed quality. The unfortunate experiences described in the negatives of this review, do not repeat on the return flight.

In the fine print is the fact that the flight includes a stop in Shenzen. On the outbound flight this was a nightmare experience with Chinese immigration. Exhausted from a 14 hour flight, passengers had their passports taken away; were put through a bizarre 45 minute finger printing process using machines that did not work; and then left to wait for an hour or more with no information. The continuation flight was in another part of the airport - a very long walk; and it turned out not to be at the departing gate that was displayed on the monitors. We arrived at the indicated (wrong) gate with no guidance. Very nearly missed the continuation flight. Once in Xiamen, our arrival was late enough that the second floor of the airport was closed. There were no ATMs on the first floor; no way to get the Chinese cash needed to take a taxi to the airport. Fortunately a kind citizen agreed to exchange some cash, using mental calculations and sign language about the exchange rate.

CX still has good offerings on flights from their home in Hong Kong to other destinations.

However, CX for International Regional is, in no way, comparable to their better long-haul routes. That being said, the entire airline has lost its luster like their home country is losing their value with prices going up and value for-the-dollar going down.

Up to date and WORKING entertainment system. Ample charging options. Business class seat operation a little cumbersome and complex, but fully reclining

Came down with flu right after flying, again! Most likely sources are passaenger poor hygiene, poor cleaning practice between flight and poor air recirculation with inadequate filtration...hope to fix those things one day

When I first checked in I was pleased to have the exit row as my seat as I really enjoy the extra leg room especially on an overnight flight. Then just before we boarded I got upgraded to business class which has never happened to me before and I loved it! The staff were very nice and the flight was enjoyable, I was able to sleep very well.

The Chinese dumplings that I had for breakfast weren’t very good, they didn’t seem very fresh.

Tons of room (I am 6'4), excellent food, wonderful service

Very little to choose from in the in flight entertainment system and they left my luggage behind in Beijing. Despite promises that it would be delivered to my hotel in the airport the next morning, I had to go back to the airport twice in order to retrieve it as no one could find it the first time.

Movie choices.

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.
