I have long since wanted to fly with Cathay Pacific since I’ve heard good things about them. Since they are tied up with Dragon Air, I got to fly my Hong Kong – Toronto leg of the trip with them.


I just noticed when we were at Hong Kong International Airport that my brother and I were not seated together so I go to the boarding gate desk to ask if there was any possibility of us seating together. They were not friendly. They were actually rude like they were practically shooing me away. I understand that the flight could be full but you can always let the passenger know in a nice way.

I think that the aircraft was really impressive when it was new but they really need an update. This was the individual monitor. They had a USB plug which was nice.

I got the pasta meal. It was okay. The ice cream was really nice.
