"reasonable regional business class"

(Australia)

Trip Verified | Shanghai to Hong Kong. A reasonable regional business class offering. Seats are nothing special in a 2x2x2 layout with minimal recline and space, but are sufficient for a short range business class flight. Generally, Cathay Dragon aircraft are old and this was no exception with this particular A330 being 21 years old. Crew were friendly and attentive and food selection was ok. I feel that Cathay Dragon is very middle of the road in terms of what it offers at the front end of the cabin.

"cabin crew were not helpful"

(New Zealand)

Trip Verified | Manila to Hong Kong. The cabin was spacious and clean. I understood that we did not have any IFE monitor because it was just an hour and 55 minutes flight but they have this entertainment portal that you can access via your phone but it did not work at all so that was a flop. The cabin crew were not helpful at all. They were really bossy and it seems like they were not enjoying their job and would not smile. I would not fly with them again.

"A short distance flight"

(China)

Trip Verified | Guangzhou to Hong Kong. A short distance flight, depart on 22:00 and just one hour flight. Cabin crew are so busy when on board because they have to prepare many things in a short time. After boarding, cabin crew gives a towel and a cookies to everyone and a bottle of a drinking water is in front of the seat.

"attentive and professional"

(China)

Trip Verified | Shanghai to Hong Kong. Arrived at airport 90 minutes before departure time. Check-in counter informed me that I could take an earlier flight. With my consent, rebooking was immediately done and boarding pass issued. There were only 3 passengers in business class cabin. Cabin crew was very friendly, attentive and professional. After take off, dinner was served. Food is well prepared and perfectly done. Seat is comfy for a 2 hours flight. Arriving punctually. For me, Cathay Dragon is the best airline between China mainland and Hong Kong.

"Generally it was fine"

(China)

Verified Review | First flight with Cathay Dragon from Shanghai to Hong Kong. Generally it was fine. The PTV was great with lots of movies to choose from and KA provides free on-board earphone. However, the breakfast was not that good. Although I usually don't expect a lot in economy, I would say the hot breakfast was below average. The aircraft which was an A330 was nearly 20 years old, but the overall maintenance was nearly excellent. Clean washrooms and comfortable seats for a short-haul flight. The staff in Shanghai Airport really need to improve their service attitudes.

"friendly, attentive, polite"

(Malaysia)

Verified Review | Flew Cathay Dragon from Hong Kong to Beijing. Ground check in was smooth at Hong Kong Airport. The ground crews were friendly and attentive. A good sign that we were in good hands onboard Cathay Dragon. Seat asignment was be 3x3. Seat pitch and width are pretty roomy for a guy like me at 179cm in height with moderate 78Kg in weight. Cabin crews were friendly, attentive, polite and well groomed. Food and drinks was top quality and they serve Haagen Dazs Ice Cream for dessert. Will recommend them to other travellers and will choose them again.

"polite, cheerful cabin crews"

(Malaysia)

Verified Review | Hong Kong to Kuala Lumpur. My first time boarding this airline. Very friendly, polite, cheerful cabin crews and excellent service. Food and beverages is very good and actually better than their sister airline Cathay Pacific. Will definitely recommend them to other travellers. Will fly them again in future.

"service by crew members was good"

(United Kingdom)

Verified Review | Okinawa Naha to Hong Kong. Check-in and ground service at Naha airport were handled by JAL staff, which made the experience fantastic. A clean and well-maintained narrow body plane with on demand inflight entertainment system. Food was mediocre but service by crew members was good. Seat was comfortable, not thinly padded. No jet bridge available at Hong Kong, and a bus was used to transfer passengers to the satellite terminal, after which passengers are treated with a long walk and additional transit train service before arriving at border control. A usual long wait for baggage at HKG.

"inflight experience was pleasant"

(Malaysia)

Verified Review | Hong Kong to Kota Kinabalu. I had a superb and memorable flight with Cathay Dragon from Hong Kong to Kota Kinabalu. There was a long queue as when I arrived at the Cathay Dragon check in counter in Hong Kong, but I had a swift check in process. Priority boarding was given to passenger who requires special attention and business class passengers followed by Economy class. This flight was operated by A320-200 registration B-HSU. I was greeted by as I boarded the aircraft and guided to the assigned seat. Inflight meal served approximately half an hour after take off. Breakfast with a choice of sausages with omelette and chicken with noodles. The omelette is delicious. In flight meal serving process was efficient. Cabin crew was available to serve hot beverages. Based on my observation and flying experience with Cathay Dragon, the meal portion has been resized to smaller portion since last year. I would suggest Cathay Dragon reconsider re introduce cakes into meal tray again. Overall inflight experience was pleasant. I look forward for more flight with Cathay Dragon in the near future.

"refused for our connecting flight"

(Netherlands)

Verified Review | Hong Kong to Hanoi. Cathay Dragon lets a family with two children just stand because of overbooked flight. After a 11-hour flight from Dusseldorf to Hong Kong, we were refused for our connecting flight due to overbooked flight. Only 5 hours later we could fly (with Vietnam airines) to Hanoi.
