Cathay Pacific Business Class

A couple of years ago I flew (and reviewed) Cathay Pacific's business class. I wasn't impressed. Whilst seats were great I was left cold by the service and disappointed by the meals. On a recent trip to Europe I decided to give them another go - this video shows how it went.
I must say, in my opinion, Cathay Pacific have really turned it around. Their crew were friendly, happy and engaging - they were eager to please and their service was top notch. The meals too were a vast improvement on Cathay's previous offerings.
On this Cathay business class review I also cover the lounge at Adelaide Airport, boarding, take off, the Cathay Pacific business class seat, the Cathay inflight entertainment system, amenities kit and landing in Hong Kong. Join me and we'll indulge in the luxury of Cathay Pacific.

  • I've never flow business class, just a question: Are all the meals and drinks provided for free in business class? Are the pre flight meals also free in the business class waiting lounge?

  • Can't wait to give it a go. We're flying in September Premium Economy to Milan, then returning to Melbourne via Business. You have whetted our appetite.

  • Back in the 1970s I used to fly from Singapore to Hong Kong several times a year. At that time Cathay Pacific's Economy class was better than most airline's First class!

  • I flew premium economy last may .cant afford business class. I found it disappointing, especially some of the staff. One girl in particular was really off and seemed to have it in for me after I asked her for help with my tray table. I hadn't been home to the uk in 16 years and she made that leg of the flight a bit horrid for me. Luckily the hong kong to Auckland leg was operated by air new Zealand and the difference in the staff and the general product couldn't have been more marked. I will avoid Cathay Pacific in future.

  • great video. happy you got upgraded from Cathay for reviewing this on youtube. whether or not is this worth actually paying for the business? among all the business flyers i know about 5% actually paid for business full price. it's usually worth upgrading with miles, or if you have a business and can tax cut the flight. for a 10+ hours flight (what u had) with Cathay, you would have to add around 1K usd for the upgrade from economy (around 1K) to business (2K) or for the premium economy (1.6K full price) (depending on the season) is the difference worth paying 1K usd? for the average person no. definitely not. it's just an 11h flight. and paying 1K for 11h is crazy. weather it is worth the money? i think the premium economy is roughly the same food. and the same service level. and u can bid like 100 or 200 usd or so for it which is totally worth it if you get it. i would say the difference in the 100-200 usd to the premium economy? yea worth it. the difference in the 1K usd full price not upgrading with the point ? nha. not for most of us who just go to travel.

  • I often see crew CX stopping filming and was on Sam Chui,s flight where they allowed it because he is so well known..plenty of smiles till camera went off but other pax complained.

    Gregory BakerGregory Bakerسنوات قبل
  • Totally agree. After 15 years costant prem travel I gave up and many HK collleagues did the same for various reasons as better cheaper choices. They admit they do not like oneworld and give priority to low level Marco Polos. Rubbish airline and even their well paid expat tech crews complain all the time. That is well know in HK sine change to local management.

  • I totally agreed with you , the cabin service from Cathay is the best even better than Singapore. Their staff provide more personal service comparing the non smiling Singapore especially their ground check in staff at Changi Terminal 3 (business counter on the afternoon of 31/12/18). In my opinion Cathay deserves a better ranking in Skytrax rating
