Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "It was nice experience"
Pros: "The staff is very customer friendly. One of the best. I"
Cons: "In general the toilets are clean but for this trip they weren’t very neat."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable with enough leg room even in Economy class.The on-flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "I didn't like the food offered that much. Also, it seemed that the crew were not that good in coordinating among themselves and helping out passengers. There was not much option on drinks."
Pros: "Comfortable enough on board. Good service."
Cons: "Late out and inbound. Dirty Airbus plane outside. Needs a good scrub!"
Pros: "Food was mediocre and passable."
Cons: "Rude behavior of Cathay Pacific Staff"
Pros: "Service was very good. Food was decent. Surprised CX served dinner early in the morning Pacific time right before arrival at SFO instead to breakfast."
Cons: "There was an extra layer of normal security check at the HKG gate 15. The male team leader, probably in '50's, with two bars on his shoulder was extremely rude to the passengers. I was at the front of Economy class when a female Asian passenger walked up in the Business class ilne. He naturally tendered to her first and let her and directing her to a lower security ranking staff t the other side of area. All fine and dandy. But seconds later, a Caucasian male walked u,p indicating that he was with that female Asian, the security guard got real mad, shouted at the Asian woman who by then was some 20 feet away that next time she needed to tell him he was with someone. When it was my turn to go into the secured area, there were to guards available standing side by side, a male and a female. He let me and pointed toward the two guards. I asked him which one, he didn't answer. I asked a second time, "Male or female", he still didn't answer, just pointed his finger toward the two guards. His attitude was totally unacceptable."
Pros: "Disciplined, timeliness."
Pros: "The airline stewardess are nice Smile"
Cons: "The Cx892 restroom floor was wet, the paper towels kept falling down, the sink was got stuck"
Pros: "Inflight crew"
Cons: "There was no wheelchair assistance for one of us ,while the other had.we we're told there was no staff to help with wheelchair! The inflight entertainment options are very poor when compared to Singapore and Emirates."
Pros: "Except for one time service everything else is good"
Cons: "Staff forgot what I have asked for boarding could have been done using zones."
Pros: "There was nothing worth liking . Plane was dirty in side . Tray tables were broken. Used pillows without hygiene sealed bags. Toilets were missing basic supplies."
Cons: "Crew was aggressive and impolite even with senior citizens . There is no point in speaking English with senior citizen of Asian decent. Making faces and giggling among themselves with a sarcasm."
Pros: "I had three previous satisfying flights in this airline- this one was not so and unfortunately it was a long flight."
Cons: "Tris time thenplane felt old, my headset didn’t work, the food was not satisfactory ( I ordered vegetarian), and the staff was just not very friendly."
Pros: "Other than loading and lack of information, the in-flight service was world class."
Cons: "Four travelers were seated in 4 different areas on flight from Hong Kong to San Francisco flight. Three of us of us were senior citizens. Two had disabilities and were.not accommodated in any way by Cathay Pacific (CP) while loading in the four areas of the plane. Those of us that we're physically able could not help those with mobility issues because of the proximity of the seating, I could not pre-check or request different seats on the CP website. I think that this was because of issues with the website, apparently due to IT system communication between American Airlines and Cathay Pacific.......on all six flights. On the transfer in San Francisco, Customs was closed when we arrived in San Francisco and we had to haul all of our baggage from one terminal to the other. There was no direction on how to handle this issue of Customs being closed while on the flight to San Francisco. I had to explain the issue of to the CP customer service crew in SF. The CP desk and they had never heard of it. American Airlines was equally poorly trained. I will also say that while at the CP customer service, there were three young adult males that we're not busy at the time and the watched us unload the baggage carts onto the scales and conveyor and then reloaded on to the carts to push to the AA terminal. We handled the bags two additional times because the CP staff did not know what to do and how to handle it. Other passengers were confused as well. I traveled internationally to Asia three times now on CP and the first two were excellent. In the past had had flown other carriers on out trips to asia. This experience on this flight was beyond bad. I had plan on several more trips to Asia the next three years, and I will say that at this point, I will not fly CP again. Something needs to change. A call to me is in order. I witnessed several gaps in CP systems and other issues with training the staff. Your survey did not specify the flight crew. Except for the loading issues and the lack of information about Customs being.closed at SF, the service was world class...what I had come to expect from CP"
Pros: "It was a lovely flight. Food/drinks were excellent."
Cons: "Toilet cleanliness needs to be better."
Pros: "Agent actually walked me to my connecting flight due to short turn around time which saved me from having to search the way by myself."
Pros: "Great food, great movie selection."
Cons: "Delay in serving wine for 12hr flight, then did not refill wine with dinner service. Also ran out of breakfast dim sum."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful in helping us find storage space for our carry-ons in a crowded plane. Very polite and attentive service."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Older plane"
Pros: "booking price was a great deal. flight attendants was awesome! she gave a headache pill for my wife that helped a lot. thank you"
Cons: "none"
Pros: "The stewardesses were super helpful, quick to respond and the pilot even gave regular updates."
Cons: "Bumpy flight and the crew didn't really come around to check on what the passengers needed aka water etc."
Cons: "Food seemed old and crew was too busy"
Pros: "Great entertainment choice"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal pre-order very dull."
Pros: "keep it up"
Pros: "Need more movie selection on classic"
Pros: "The flight attendants were top notch and very busy and efficacious. I was impressed that they were always so helpful, courteous, and energetic even after a 12 hour flight!"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable with POOR AIRFLOW, mid way in the economy cabin, next to window (seat 44k). It was like trying to breath through a straw. I asked flight attendant if they could check the air flow, and her answer was that the temperature was 23C and everyone one else had blankets. My concern was not with temperature but FLOW. SO I went to back cabin (6 rows back) and the airflow was much much better and I could actually sleep. So bottom line there is an airflow issue mid economy cabin on the central AC jets. They should address this by putting back in air nozzles or checking actual airflow on these jets. This is very uncomfortable on long flights. Not sure I would fly this jet again for this reason."
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Food was worse no snacks at all"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Cabin crew was poor in English communication skill. I remain skeptical how the cabin crew could effectively communicate to passengers in the case of an in-flight or ground emergency. Pillow covers were filthy. There were body fluid stains and long hairs stuck to the covers. I went through and rejected four of them. Inflight service was good but there was an unwritten Cathay Pacific rule that I was not aware of.........each passenger is restricted to two alcohol beverage drinks in any one hour period."
Cons: "Hindi selection of movies was not good"
Pros: "It was clean. Service was prompt, but my earlier flight was better because attendants were more attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Bathrooms weren't cleaned as often. Toilet seat covers were out both times I used the bathroom (same). Drinks were okay."
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: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Waiting time , as the flight was not scheduled on time. Also there was no vegeterian food from Honk Kong to SFO."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific provided excellent service."
Cons: "nothing much. overall good."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific takes great care of you. The food is good (for airline food anyway), the staff is helpful, and there is a pretty good selection of free movies. I would definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "Good collection of entertainment options"
Cons: "Biggest gripe: No onboard wifi. As a business traveller, this is important to me."
Cons: "I was at the window seat. They weren't really paying attention to me when they bring water or collect the trash."
Pros: "Great crew. But, they ran out of breakfast choices early."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms"
Pros: "Cathay offer a hotel for the overnight delay at Grand Harbor hotel with a free taxi voucher. This is a good help for us to prepare for the horrible next day."
Cons: "The missed flight to SFO was replaced by another flight to LAX next day and then from LAX to SFO via United as domestic flight. This is horrible experience since we had to check out all luggages, go through custom and then check in the bags again with all weighing problems. The worse is that to go from International terminal to United domestic counter, we had to pull the luggages along the curb from one end of the airport to the other side of it. We will never take this option again"
Cons: "Those economy seats can only fit a child comfortably."
Cons: "The headphones did not work."
Cons: "Process needs inprovement. Had to wait 1 hour for my bag at SFO. 2/3 of bags showed up within 15 min. Nobody seemed to know what's going on. Business class was relatively empty, yet the airline did not make any offer for upgrade to business, at flight time. So many other airlines do it the days. Food average at best. Prefer more quality food, even if i have to pay extra"
Pros: "Plane was newer & clean. Cabin crew was helpful & nice with my dad transferring from wheel chair to the plane"
Cons: "My family traveled with my 80 year old dad but Hong Kong ground crew would not allow us to board together. My wife & I had to carry all our carry on baggage since my mom was the only one allowed to board with him. All three previous flights the ground crew allowed all of us to stay as a family."
Pros: "Crew were nice and accommodating. Food was good."
Cons: "Useless English movies and very few latest movies."
Pros: "The service and food was excellent!"
Cons: "The seat would not lean back d/t the person sitting behind me"
Pros: "The Cathay crew as always were polite and attentive to me. I love icecream. I love cake."
Cons: "Sometimes crewmembers were a little over rushed, skipping people for drinks and such, and not being particularly gracious when asked to back track (this didn't happen to me, but I witnessed it happening to others (East Indians, actually)). Economy is really cramped and awful for international flights. I wish I could afford better, but the step up in cost is beyond my budget. The food on this particular flight didn't seem as well prepared or presented as usual, but it was still ample serving and tasty enough."
Pros: "Good service. Flight attendants are nice, food is not bad."
Cons: "The seats on this plane were worse than the ones on the shorter flight. Maybe it was just an older aircraft, but you'd think the longer flights would have the more comfortable seats."
Cons: "Same as said above. Quantity of food was not sufficient"
