Newest Review: ... to me felt cold. Early February, one of my family member received an email from Cathay Pacific's Marco Polo Club, which is for elite members who travel frequently. I am also a Marco Polo member but didn't get that email. The email was a promotional offer for members to receive double miles if they travel between February and April. I figured since I was a member also, that email may have ... more
Customer Cathay Pacific Reviews (6)

I have been a loyal Cathay Pacific customer for over 10 years flying from NY's JFK to Hong Kong. They have been great till they partnered with American Airlines flying to Hong Kong in the past few years. Not only has their prices gone up significantly more than the other airlines but the service and the perks that made me a repeat customer has totally gone away. On my most recent flight from NY to HK, I paid extra to get an exit seat so I can have more leg room. Didn't know why there was cold air coming in by the door but it was so cold and unbearable that I asked the flight attendant to move me to any other seat, even the cheaper economy seats. All ...

The big holiday this year was to celebrate my 40th birthday and as we faced the long journey Down Under an early decision was made that we would travel in business class. I normally spend a long time researching the flight options and this was no exception. I decided on Cathay Pacific for three main reasons. The first was that it seemed to be one of only a few airlines that guaranteed the complete 180 degrees flat bed on all legs of the journey; I have found a lot of business class products offer a "lie flat bed" which although offers lots of space it is at a really annoying 160 degree angle. I find it difficult to sleep on these seats and ... Read the complete review

Flew Cathay Pacific Business class from H/Row to Sydney and back this month. I would say that if you can afford it, this route is probably best done Qantas, but, that said, C.P try hard and have very good cabin staff. I found the seats too narrow, and although to be honest I am on the plump side (size 18), I am not really enormous and I am sure some men would find them very claustrophobic. They are though, if you are slender enough, very private and well appointed. The lounges at H/Row and Hong Kong are comfortable, and the showers a great relief when enduring this long a flight. Thought the food mediocre - and I usually like airline food! Hong Kong airport is vast, and the walk to the departure gate seemed to take forever, but it is clean and well staffed.

I am just going to write about my personal experience on this airline. 1) Service on board the airline was excellent. I have seen them provide vouchers for the inflight shopping for those whose entertainment systems are broken. They are also forthcoming with snacks (I consume a lot of pot noodles and ice cream and the airplane meals was too oily for me). They are also very willing to take on feedback for anything that you have since I received a response to this comment that i made on a survey. They respond pretty fast to the call button or will come by to explain why they are delayed so you do feel placated. 2) Food wise, might be too oily/heavy ... Read the complete review

There is often little to choose between the top airlines. However there is occasionally one that shines above many of the rest. This is what we found when we flew with Cathay Pacific from London to Australia. This is a long flight, even though we changed planes at Hong Kong, and the advantages of flying with Cathay Pacific became very obvious. In all we flew from London Heathrow to Hong Kong, then Hong Kong to cairns. Then on the return trip from Adelaide via Melbourne to Hong Kong, and finally Hong Kong to London Heathrow. Unfortunately we were unable to fly business class so all the flights were "Economy" class. They have a modern fleet consisting of ... Read the complete review
