• For those complaining about the use of the plastic tray – without it the service would take forever. CX already has a lack of cabin crew and this new 'concept' will already extend meal service duration. Don't push it.

  • CX serves Business Class food in Premium Economy. Not sure where you got that information from.

  • Why is the title of this article "Singapore Airlines sees flyers swap champagne for cheap seats"? Quite misleading the article has nothing to do with this.

  • Correction: not record profits, but they would have a profit of 8 billion HKD, a solid profit which is higher than the profit in 2011-2015 (actual record profit of 14 billion was in 2010).

  • To be honest, it seems like CX's base game plan is better than SQ's. If they didn't make that massive mistake of fuel hedging (which is only a big mistake in hindsight...), CX would be making record profits right now. Unfortunately, it seems that fuel prices will rise continually before the contr...

  • With more new A350s being delivered (and long haul 777s and A330s being freed) there is a higher chance that a long haul operated flight will be switched out last minute compared to before. However, if your flight is initially scheduled on a regional aircraft it's very likely that it'll still be ...

  • I've been on CX and SQ, only been on an A350 once with CX. The premium economy seats on both airlines are similar, but the business class seats are quite different. If you want to go PE, SQ has better food and better service, but you have to have a layover (you're planning to see the city anyway ...

  • I assume you didn't press the small grey button that raises the armrest on the aisle side...And considering CX won Skytrax's 2016 Best First Class Lounge of the Year, and came 2nd place in the Best Business Class Lounge, I'm just assuming that you've visited all the poorer lounges in HKG. Next ti...

    How is the design and legroom better? Seat pitch on the A350 is increased by 3 inches, and the old location of the power ports made it awkward to charge phones. The headphone jack was always inside the storage door as well. I personally think it makes it cleaner and theres less tangling of stupid...

    To the OP: don't worry about their J seats anymore. As AusBT pointed out, the 3 A350s suffering from the problems the most will be retrofitted by July. CX has 13 A350s in its fleet, with 2 more that should arrive in May, so you were probably a bit unlucky to get one of the older planes. Most of C...
