CX First Class HKG to ORD dining 10

Date: Thursday 16th April
Departure Time: 11:55am
Duration of Flight: 14 hours 6 minutes

As I was using my US Dividend Miles to redeem this flight – I was excited to try this product as I have heard so much about it and wanted to try it for myself.

For check in – as I was in first class – we were given priority to board before any other class. As I was departing Hong Kong to go to America – it is a requirement for them to check your bags again.

As I was flying First class from Hong Kong to Chicago on Cathay Pacific I was given access to The Wing lounge. This is located on the left as soon as you come out of customs.

Upon entry you can see grand comfortable seats. You know it's a first class lounge with the furnishings that are provided for the class of people who pay thousands of dollars to fly the top class.

I always enjoy flying on Cathay Pacific Business Class. In my view so far – the seats here are sufficient enough for a nice comfortable flight. Having flown it twice before I already.…

I am probably biased because I was born in Hong Kong but have lived in Sydney all my life – I can’t get enough of the city. I have probably been there 10 times in the last 10 years. Every time I leave the city – I feel a bit sad – but know that I will be back.

I’ve been to many countries and cities around the world – but if there was one place I could live apart from Sydney with my family – then it would be hands down Hong Kong.

When you walk the streets and the shopping malls you can feel an instant energy. Hong Kong is always changing with the times and trends so every time I go back there is always something new to see and do. There is no other city in the world that compares.

My second favourite city is Tokyo with the futuristic buildings and cultural heritage and incredible Japanese food. But why Hong Kong I think tops Tokyo is the food. There is just so much more variety in Hong Kong than Tokyo. Tokyo is incredible for of course the Japanese food – but Hong Kong does all cuisines around the world just as good in my opinion.

The chinese food is great, the western choices fantastic and even does Japanese food really well. I love my congee and wonton noodles so will eat that at every chance I get. The buffets in the hotels are out of this world – try the Shangri-la Island buffet – simply incredible. Sydney hotel buffets could learn a thing or two from the buffet choice offered in Hong Kong.…

CX Business Class Seat 1

Date 25/9/2014

Duration: 15 hours

Departure Time: 6:25pm

My flight from Hong Kong to Chicago was 15 hours which made it my longest flight on a plane yet. This gives a person definitely enough time to experience what Business Class has to offer you.


The seat is similar to the Sydney to Hong flight I had earlier – it was spacious and had enough room for me to pull out my laptop and work. Since this was a longer flight – I was able to turn the seat into a flat bed to experience sleeping on this product.…

CX The Bridge Dining Area 1

Date: 25/9/2014

I was transiting in Hong Kong International Airport and had a 3 hour timeframe. This gave me enough time to do a bit of wandering around the shops. I had to find a place first of all that served congee as that is one of my two favourite meals in the world – the other being wonton noodles. Only can I eat it in Hong Kong as they did it better than any other place.…
