Review: Cathay Pacific (CX)

Check In



Check in was easy. As always, I do travel with sub-load ticket. So it is always subject to seat availability. Staff are nice and helpful.

Departure Hall

Departed from KL International Airport. As usual. Be sure to shop first before proceeding to the waiting hall.

Aircraft


Today we were flying with the Boeing 777-200. The cabin is very well maintained. The seat is comfortable. However, I do find the space is a little bit cramp. I love the ambiance.

Cabin Crew


I find the cabin crew are an exceptional. They are very helpful in helping the passengers. I love how they treat the passengers without having the "force face" look. I can't say more. Definitely one of the best cabin crew I had flown with.

In Flight Entertainment



Every seats are equip with individual personal screen. The selection of movie and music were alright. In compare to some other airlines, I believe Cathay still adopt the old system with limited buttons of selection. Nonetheless, it is sufficient enough to keep one entertain throughout the flight.

Meal


The meal were delightful. A heavy breakfast were provided for the flight. I decided to pick Fish with Chinese style fried rice to try. Portion were good and the taste was nice.

Overall Rating


Check In 4/5
Departure Hall 4/5
Aircraft 4/5
Cabin Crew 5/5

Meal 4/5
