• I could never understand the TG mentality in maintaining 744 service ex SYD. The aircraft are tired and seats uncomfortable. I stopped flying TG because of this.

  • Another element is that CX and VA have premium economyVA's A330 only offers Business and Economy on the HKG route. Extra seats are not Premium Economy.
