"we were disappointed"

(South Korea)

Not Verified | We travelled in year end from Seoul to Kolkata via Hong Kong. Firstly we were disappointed with their cabin baggage system. No baggage place for the passengers above their seat. People are are just dumping there luggage anywhere in the cabin above. Secondly the food quality was not up to the standards. Pre book meals was salty. Crew service was not at ball satisfying. Every time we travel the connecting flight from HKG is running late. Next time we will select for alternative airline.

"I recommend this airline"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Travelling from Vancouver to Bengaluru via Hong Kong. Flight got delayed at Vancouver. Missed the connecting flight to Bengaluru. But as soon as I landed there was immediate assistance and was provided with ticket in the next flight and also a stay at the airport till I take the next flight. Also, food vouchers were provided. Thanks to the Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon for immediate assistance and arrangements at the airport. Or else would have been stranded for 24 hours after a tiring journey. I recommend this airline.

"not authentically friendly"

(Finland)

Trip Verified | Paris to Hong Kong. Cathay Pacific is considered as very top classic airline. But unfortunately, the cabin is gray, the staff was not authentically friendly but just doing their job. Food does not look nice. The staff did not come to greet me and they forgot the tray in my place for a long time. My red wine glass was filled with port.

"service rushed and below average"

(United States)

Trip Verified | Los Angeles to Hong Kong. The seat and new bedding were very good. The meal service was rushed and below average. The breakfast was just not good. After the first meal service no drinks were offered and the flight crew disappeared. The next time you saw the crew was at the breakfast service. I think next time I will choose a different carrier.

"worst Premium Economy"

(Australia)

Trip Verified | Hong Kong to Mumbai. One of the worst Premium Economy Service. I flew on board CX685 on 24th Dec, my seat was 30D. Premium Economy is a joke. The seats are almost the same as size as economy, tables get stuck while folding. No welcome drink for Premium Economy passengers, no hot towel. No separate meal selection, same economy trays and same food. Separate Premium boarding gate is only by name with anybody walking in. Communication of crew poor. I would strongly suggest fliers not to waste money on Cathay Pacific Premium Economy.

"do not consider customers"

(Australia)

Trip Verified | Brisbane to Colombo via Hong Kong. In flight service ok but I booked a return ticket with short transit. They suddenly changed or advanced return day so that I am going to miss the most important part of the trip. When I requested a day later they said that day sold out - on their website still tickets for sale. They do not consider customers requirements. Think twice if you fly with Cathay Pacific.

"not refund me the full ticket"

(Australia)

Trip Verified | I booked a flight on their website and cancelled within 20mins (as per their policy of a full refund if cancelled within 24 hours of booking) because I realised it was only valid for 6 months. However, the airline has been finding every excuse they can to not refund me the full ticket. They have charged me a penalty of $550 even though it is their policy to provide a full refund. This is their latest response: "Thank you for your patience while waiting for our reply. We were investigating this matter with our online booking team and were awaiting their response. They have checked your son’s flight reservation, under airline booking reference xxxx and ticket number xxxx and have advised that your booking was made on the Australia website. So unfortunately, the cancellation fees do apply and we are unable to refund them. We know this was not the answer you were hoping to hear, but we are sorry. Thank you for contacting us."

"a memorable moment"

"attentive and very polite"

(Australia)

Trip Verified | Brisbane to Delhi via Hong Kong. Service was attentive and very polite, staff greeting you by name. Meal service was wonderful, staff taking your orders on a tablet before bringing food to your seat without a trolley. I never thought a hamburger on a plane could be so good but they managed to do it very well, the only downside was the chips which were below average. Drinks were nice, and the champagne upon boarding is a lovely touch. The flatbed seat was really comfortable and I managed to sleep quite well. The lounges at Hong Kong were incredible, and I made a point of visiting several. Highlights include the tea room where you can have your choice of tea brewed in a very spacious and tranquil room. The shower rooms were spacious. Service at the bar was great. The only disappointing thing at the lounge was the noodle bar which really didn't do much for me despite yum cha and noodle soup you can expect all over Hong Kong. They even have a meditation corner which was a nice way to relax. The egg tarts were okay, but nothing to write home about. Can't really comment on value for money as this was a points redemption, however, I generally find the cost difference between economy and business is much better spent on the ground at your destination. My only complaint was that my bag was mishandled and delayed as a result. It was handled so poorly that both the check-in bag tag, and a personal tag on mine were missing from the bag. They found it reasonably quickly and I had it a couple of days later, but my follow up emails about the missing tag went unanswered for weeks despite repeated attempts by me to contact them.

"The staff was so rude"

(Australia)

Trip Verified | Sydney to Incheon via Hong Kong. I went on holiday and on my way and return, my flight got delayed and hence missed both connecting flight. The worst thing was that my dad was travelling with me as his brother - my uncle - was in critical condition. And we missed his passing just because of the delay. And no one was empathetic at all! The staff was so rude that it made grieving so much worse.
