I was really impressed with both the service and product on the short 2 hour and 45 minute flight from Hong Kong to Bangkok – lie-flat seating and service quality in-line with if not better than the JFK-HKG leg.  Cathay operates several aircraft on the route and this flight was operated by an A340. This is part four of a thirteen part trip report from my third and most recent trip back to Thailand.

Very happy with the separate business class boarding as the line was HUGE…

Lie flat-seats, not as nice as the updated 777-300ER but extremely comfortable for a sub three hour flight.

Why don’t you write about the “cattle” class, the business class will always look sooooo nice where they pretend you exist by addressing you by your name, and I just do love the real serving glasses/silverware versus plastic….sporks for the less priviledged…..but to be fair, I must say CX does have good service in economy as compared to many others.
