| Gatwick to Hong Kong, The A350 was a beautiful aircraft to fly on and made the long 12 hour journey much easier, a very nice plane to travel on. Cathay Pacific did not have a good style of boarding, rather than boarding economy from back to front to avoid congestion, all of economy was called at once and boarding took way too long and there was too much isle congestion. The cabin crew were not friendly or helpful at all, on most airlines I've flown the cabin crew greet you and direct you to your seat, on Cathay you get on, nothing happens and you find your own way, the crew just stood there talking. The seats were comfortable although the seat pockets on the seats were directly connected with fabric and no internal plastic, meaning whenever you or somebody else went into the seat pocket, the person in front felt it quite a lot and it was frustrating while trying to sleep. The meal options werent great, considering it was a flight from England to Asia, you'd expect there to be British style options as well as Asian, not on this flight. On dinner service the crew were rude, "what do you want" I understand their first language is not english, but being a flight from an English speaking country you'd expect there to be a little better knowledge. I noticed most people had bread rolls, I didn't get one so I asked for one, the attendant thought I was trying to get two and explained it was only one per passenger, I told her that I hadn't been given one and she didn't believe me. All in all the flight was average, but Cathay was disappointing and I wouldn't fly with them in future unless it was considerably cheaper than other options.
