• Oof. This means you'll be in their leased LATAM aircraft, which don't feature WiFi or direct aisle access. The only thing you can bet for is an equipment swap since your flight's so far out.

  • On the Hong Kong route, QR815 and QR818 have QSuites too! (QR815/6 get swapped out quite a bit unfortunately, though the same can be said for all of the other routes.) There's also QR57/58 for Munich, and QR1/2 which should be run by QSuite A350-900s.

  • I agree – an Apex Suite-configured narrowbody would be spectacular. That would basically be a longer version of Korean Air's 747-8 upper deck, which I've flown, and is spectacular.However it's important to consider the sub-US$1,600 RT prices that La Compagnie is offering. These planes are ...

  • Didn't see you yesterday! And the aircraft will run HKG-BKK on HX771 over the next couple days.

  • “we think we’ve got a very comfortable product for that service”Recently I booked my aunt into Cathay Pacific’s business class, and unbeknownst to me there was an equipment swap from a longhaul A330 to a shorthaul A330.Her explanation? “They downgraded me to eco...

  • Jamesflyer, as you see people here have differing opinions on The Pier. Having been there 3-4 times myself I for one believe it’s absolutely worth it — I enjoy the spaciousness, the food, the variety of things to do, the variety of seating and the sheer number of amenities. I think ...

  • While I've heard lots about Qantas' amazing First Class lounge in Sydney, unfortunately they seem to overshadow the adjacent international business class lounge. I'll be flying from Sydney to Hong Kong in Cathay Pacific business class next February, and would like to know more about the food opti...

    bob342, since you're in business class on a oneworld airline, you'll have access to all oneworld business class lounges in Hong Kong. I personally recommend The Pier, which is a little bit out of the way near gate 65, though the schlep is well worth it. Amazing lounge with great design and tons o...

  • I have had no issues checking in way before my flight at Hong Kong Airport. You can even do online check in 48 hours before departure, and just head straight through immigration (after, potentially, dropping your bags) with your mobile boarding pass and get into The Pier for five relaxing hours.
