Flight Review: Cathay Pacific Business Class HKG to BKK

My flight was delayed for 2 hours due to poor weather condition in Hong Kong. I was allowed to get on board first but the flight won’t take off until 2 hours later.

Flight detail:-

Flight number: CX 653
From/To: HKG/BKK


I have travelled CX business with flight model A330 (Airbus), the seating configuration is different from 747 flight (Boeing) and I really don’t like it.

The seat was a bit narrow in my opinion and I felt a bit uncomfortable. Even I originally sat next to my mum, our seats were facing the opposite direction. Therefore, I politely asked a lady to switch seat with me.

Now that I switched to sit in front of her, it was so difficult to talk to her. She has to tap my head to draw my attention. Annoying! Haha~

I was offered a welcome drink, and they included a new drink called “Oriental Breeze”. Love it love it! Very tasty!

The food was all right and no surprise at all. And there was not enough fish for my mum. I probably took the last one, and she got a chicken dish that was so chewy. I offered to exchange my dish with her, but she insisted and requested to change of food with the flight attendant.

A lamb steak was what she got, and oh gosh she said it tasted so bad.

I ordered a glass of white wine and it was surprisingly tasty. It’s called Spy Valley. I eventually purchased 2 bottles (HKD$119/bottle) when I travelled back to Hong Kong, and it tasted completely different.

Ice cream was offered as dessert.

Video on demand with many TV shows but NO MOVIES!

Why can’t they add some movies for this 3 hours flight?

So I watched 2 episodes of the Kardashians. Don’t judge!

By the way, the premium lane pass that all the business class passenger can use was not very fast at all.
