This is the worst business class flight I had for last 15 years and I fly twice a week so know what I'm talking about. The plane is a A`320. Very small with only 8 business class seats. The seats are actually premium economy not business and they only recline back less than several cms or a few inches. Condition...

Cathay is a great airline normally, especially when you fly from Hong Kong to Europe or US. The leg from Hong Kong to Bangalore is one that I have now flown a couple of times. The seats are good. Cabin crew not dripping sunshine is polite enough. What irks me is that when we order vegetarian meal, they come and...

Overall it was a good expereince. Check-in: Overall it was smooth. The only surprise was that since there was a 24 hr gaps between my flight in PVG and my connecting flight from HGK they said they would return me my luggage at HKG. This was obviously a bit inconvenient. I am not sure if this was specific to Cathay...

Alas, another flight with Dragon air and honestly, fits the bill if there is a price difference with Cathy. Our flight attendant was a lovely, switched on lady whom made sure we were comfortable and well attended.

A transit in Hong Kong counted as a Chinese stop so I could not make use of the Chinese visa waiver for a 48 hour visit to Xi'an, very disappointed.

Pretty comfortable trip and surprisingly, the dinner (pork w/ rice) was not bad at all. Smooth landing compared to other airline. Definitely with fly more on Cathay Dragon.

Very pleasant flight. I was a little apprehensive going in as the last time, a few years ago, I flew Dragonair business class, I had the worst airline food ever. Not just bad - but inedible. Today's food was thankfully perfectly fine. Most surprisingly, I was happier with the IFE choice than my trans-Pacific flight on Cathay. Makes no sense....
