Business Class on Cathay Pacific
My Cathay flight from Bangkok to Newark took me to Hong Kong where I had 2 hours stopover and had the opportunity to check out the Cathay business lounge, and I was impressed. You can read about my review on the Bangkok lounge and also the one in Hong Kong here.
Now here’s my review of Cathay’s seats and aircraft. I was on the business class which was 1-2-1 configuration. Every window seats has a view, full flat bed and ample leg room for someone who is 6 foot 3.
The seat comes with a arm rest which is collapsable to give you the additional space when it converts to a flat bed. And a small storage compartment next to the seat console.
More storage underneath the tray. Steps in front become footrest when seat reclines.
A welcome drink just before the flight takes off.
Shortly after the flight takes off we were served with dinner – mango scallops, bread and salad. Big, fat and juicy scallops served with mango sauce to kick start the meals onboard.
And for my 2nd meal, I opted for wok-fried prawns, black truffle, asparagus and mixed vegetables served with jasmine rice. It was simply delish…
After the main course we were served with freshly cut fruits.
A raspberry tart to end off the meal on a sweet note!

What I like my flight on Cathay Pacific is their lavatory. Unlike conventional ones, tiny and claustrophobic. Here you get a great view as you refreshen yourself up! Amazing view…
As the flight approaches Newark I realised the time onboard went by quickly. Indeed, seating configuration and the quality customer service do make a long haul flight a pleasant experience. Would I consider taking Cathay Pacific again? Yes, I would. However, their business class ticket does command a premium – serious consideration.
