if you can't go legacy and you hate flying the down and dirty budget carriers, KA is a good option as they are one of the few airlines that has a business class on most flights. if you are in the back of the plane on a very low fare, it's like flying on a budget airline but with a...

Great Air Crew, very helpful and full of smiles. Nothing was too much trouble. The food and drinks were very good - the not downside being the dated movie selection and very few movies with subtitles for the hard of hearing - a bit naughty in this day and age.

This is everything you need in an airline: friendly, prompt, and affordable. Check in & baggage claim was quick and efficient. Flight attendants were helpful and professional. And BEST of all, we arrived ON TIME!!

I love travel a lot! The first thing I would consider to pick a airline is according to the services, schedule, and price. Cathay Dragon's business class never let me down, and customer services is excellent!

The newly upgraded airport in HongQiao is modern, comfortable, and very easy to get around. Planes tend to take off and arrive on time (or within 30 minutes), without suffering the demoralizing long delays of Shanghai Pudong or other regional airports. The flight seems to always be packed cheek to jowl, but the seats are comfortable and not too overcrowded....

We were very pleased with this flight as Dragons seat configuration is 2/4/2 so my husband got his window seat and I got my aisle seat with nobody else next to us. The flight was on time, food reasonable, loved the Hagen Daz ice cream! Plenty of leg room and a good selection of films. The staff were friendly and...

The service is satisfactory, however the planes are a little bit old, so they should replace the new seating as Cathay Pacific. The cabin crew is with longer service, so they are not as attentive as the newer crew.

This is a very short haul flight of just 45 minutes. Inspite of this before the flight take off, they serve snacks and cleanup before the flight takes off. There is enough space in these flights considering that it is a short haul flight.

Was in Hong Kong staying with my Son & we decided to go to Chiang Mai for a few days. Booked with Cathay Dragon. Took three hours & was hassle free to book & the flight was very smooth & on time. Highly recommend.
