Pros: Been flying CX for years and for some reasons this time all the staff members were excellent. From ground to air crew everyone was well informed, nice and helpful. Another surprise was the vegan meal I ordered. Airplane food in general is disgusting, but this time the vegan meal was delicious.

Cons: Flying out from JFK is a nightmare, we had to wait for 40 mins on the runway. Not sure if airlines can actually improve that?

Pros: LOVED the cup of Ramen anytime snack and curved utensils for eating on a moving plane, genius! Service and quality of product is great. If possible, I will always Choose Cathay Pacific airlines over any US Legacy Airlines to Asia any day!

Cons: Stop shrinking the check-in luggage size and allowable weight every few years. It's a nuisance to have to buy new luggage every few years when perfectly working luggage has to be thrown away because of size requirement shrinkage.

Mediocre 2.6

Cons: The crew’s English was awful; this making this Cartier a bad choice for non-Mandarin speaking travelers. The power port is throttled at 20W, make my sleep therapy machine inoperablere so I got no sleep on a 12 hour flight. Food was mediocre at best. Never flying China Eastern again.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: Be careful with this airline if you have connections with them. If you’re delayed and miss your connection, they will not help get you onto another flight. You’ll be stranded. Because of this, I had to spend about $1000 to rebook things when my itinerary fell apart because of this one miss.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller

Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
