Review: Cathay Pacific Lounge Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport

Qatar Airways sends 'Business Lite' passengers with elite status to one of the many 'Miracle' lounges in the airport, but as I knew that Cathay Pacific wouldn't turn me away and would probably offer a considerably better experience, that was the first lounge that I went to (I tried the JAL lounge later).

Cathay Pacific Will Only Serve Three US Cities In September

Before the travel world came to grinding halt, Cathay Pacific offered flights between Hong Kong and eight US airports across 7 US cities but, in a further sign of how slowly travel is currently recovering, the carrier is only set to operate to three of those cities in September 2020.

Cathay Pacific Economy Class Sale: USA – Hong Kong From $471

Cathay Pacific is running an Economy & Business Class sale for travel between the US and Asia and, although I can't see too much to get excited about in the Business Class fares, there are one or two last-minute Economy Class fares which look to be pretty good value.

Back in October 2018 Cathay Pacific opened up a trial in which Marco Polo Club members flying with Cathay Pacific (in any cabin) could pay to enter three of the Business Class lounges in its worldwide network. This trial is still in progress and was set to end on 31 March this year but, according to recent reports, Cathay Pacific has just announced and extension to the trial and added more lounges to it.

Is Cathay Pacific Now Even Closer To Leaving Oneworld? [Speculation]

These are tumultuous times for the oneworld alliance with more infighting than ever before and with at least one member already openly saying that it's considering exiting as soon as next year. It's no secret that a number of oneworld's members don't really get on and some even openly dislike each other so it seems only a matter of time before something gives and we see one or more significant changes to the membership.

Cathay Pacific Confirms New Route To The US – It’s Seattle!

Cathay Pacific used Twitter the other day to tease us about a possible new route to the US and now the airline has revealed exactly what that new route will be. A number of the routes included in the teaser seemed unlikely (I never thought Salt Lake City, Austin or Denver were in the running) but a number were also plausible (Honolulu, Seattle & Dallas) so it wasn't automatically obvious where Cathay planned to fly next.

Cathay Pacific May Be About To Launch A New US Route

There hasn't been anything from the press office and there was no mention of anything when the airline released its latest traffic figures for June but the Cathay Pacific US Twitter account appears to be teasing a new route to the US.

Cathay Pacific Sale – Hong Kong From $348 (Book By June 8)

Cathay Pacific has launched a short Economy Class sale offering fares between the West Coast and Hong Kong from as low as $348. The fares are available on non-stop flights originating in San Francisco and Los Angeles and, from what I can see, don't come with any onerous constraints or requirements - you just have to be prepared to book by 8 June 2018.

Cathay Pacific Will Improve Meal Service In Business Class…But Only A Little

In an interview given to Bloomberg back in March the Cathay Pacific CEO Rupert Hogg was keen to stress that, as part of its efforts to get back to profitability, the airline planned to do "a lot more on food" and that "food is going to be a concentration" for the airline going forward. Things have been quiet on the Cathay front for a few weeks now but now Australian Business Traveller has got its hands on an internal email that appears to shed some light on what's coming.

Speculation: Cathay Pacific Will Downgrade Economy Class In The Next Year

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding Cathay Pacific over the past 18 months as the airline struggles with various economic pressures. In the financial year to December 2017 Cathay Pacific posted a net loss of HK$1.26bn and we've seen the airline have to fend off suggestions that it would have to introduce buy-on-board meal service to help raise more revenue.

Cathay Pacific Will Launch Service To Cape Town This Year

Last month a mysterious document purporting to be an internal Cathay Pacific memo was leaked to a number of newspapers and travel websites. The document suggested that Cathay was considering a number of negative service moves and that the airline would start up non-stop service to Canberra and Cape Town in 2018.

Cathay Pacific – No Smoke Without Fire

There have been rumors circulating for a while that Cathay Pacific is planning to put through a few service changes that you wouldn’t ordinarily associate with a premium airline and, last week, things came to a head.

The Cathay Pacific First & Business Class Lounge Kuala Lumpur – In Pictures

I recently spent quite a few hours in Kuala Lumpur International airport and, as the Malaysia Airlines lounges in the satellite terminal are both currently closed for refurbishment, I took a look around to see what other options are currently available. I’ve already posted details of the Malaysia Airlines C.I.P Lounge in the satellite terminal, which is where some Malaysia Airlines passengers are being sent but, as that facility is (a) temporary, (b) small and (c) not exactly impressive, you may want to know what the Cathay Pacific Lounge is like.

Cathay Pacific Adds More Services To Europe & Israel From 2018

Over the past month Cathay Pacific's route planners have been busier than I ever remember them being. At the end of August the airline announced 3 new routes between Hong Kong and Europe and then, 3 weeks later, Cathay suspended its route to Dusseldorf. Now the route planners are at it again with the announcement of more service between Hong Kong and Europe and an increase in service to Israel too.

Emirates Adds Another Flight To Sydney As Cathay Pacific Cuts A European Route

Emirates has decided that 2 daily flights between Dubai and Sydney simply isn't enough for the European summer season (which is actually Australia's Winter) and Cathay Pacific has announced that it's cutting a route to Europe almost two years to the day from when the route was launched.

Review: Cathay Pacific A330 Business Class (NRT-HKG)

After a really great few days in Tokyo we took the Narita Express train from Shinjuku station to Tokyo’s Narita airport where we were due to catch a Cathay Pacific A330 Business Class flight to Hong Kong from Terminal 2. Cathay Pacific’s check-in areas are in area D of Narita airport and, as there was no line at all for First Class check-in (courtesy of my oneworld status), getting our boarding passes and lounge invitation didn’t take long at all.

Cathay Pacific Announces Three New A350 Routes To Europe & Award Availability Is GREAT

Over the past few days Cathay Pacific has been dropping hints about a few new routes it has been planning to launch and, while some of the guesses I've been reading about have been little more than fanciful wishes, some guessed the new routes correctly. More importantly the new A350 routes look very interesting and award availability appears to be wide open!

Review: Cathay Pacific A350 Business Class (HKG-DUS)

I'd had a very nice time at Cathay Pacific's Pier First Class lounge but now it was time for the second reason I was taking this trip - to try out Cathay Pacific's Airbus A350. The first reason for the trip, to try out Cathay Pacific's First Class on the 777, had gone very well so I was looking forward to see what Cathay would offer on their newest aircraft.

Cathay Pacific Succumbs To 10-Across Economy Class Cabins And We’re To Blame

I expect airlines like American, Air France and Emirates to cram their passengers in to annoyingly tight seats that no human should have to endure but there are other airlines where we've come to expect better...and Cathay Pacific is one of those airlines. Cathay Pacific has long been considered one of the all-round premium airlines in the skies and that's a reputation that has been earned not only because of the amazing service in its First Class cabin but also because the airline hasn't historically treated its passengers like self-loading cargo. But it looks like those days are nearly over.

Review: Cathay Pacific 777 First Class (ZRH – HKG)

I was having a pretty relaxing time in the Aspire First Class lounge and enjoying the freedom of the balcony that the lounge opens up on to but, about an hour before my departure time, I decided to head down to the gate. I'm not normally one to get to the gate particularly early (unless I need to make sure that there will be room for my carry on in the overhead bins) but I wasn't exactly sure how long it would take me to the gate and I wanted to be one of the first on the aircraft to make taking pictures a lot easier.

Cathay Pacific First & Business Class Trip – Introduction

I've never had a yearning to fly in First Class, it's not something that's ever really interested me. I've always been of the opinion that Business Class travel is more than enough for my needs and that the extra miles it would cost to fly in First Class could be put to better use elsewhere. This mantra has been with me for a while but it's taken a bit of a back seat of late thanks to two completely unrelated events.

Cathay Pacific Upgrades Melbourne Route With An A350 & A 777

For a lot of travelers Hong Kong is a major connecting point for travel to Australia so the news that Cathay Pacific has scheduled its new Airbus A350 aircraft and a Boeing 777-300ER on its Hong Kong - Melbourne route will be very welcome.

Cathay Pacific Adds Flights To Boston & To Vancouver

Cathay Pacific has announced that it plans to increase the number of flights it offers between Hong Kong and Boston and between Hong Kong and Vancouver from Spring 2017. This is a significant step for the Hong Kong based carrier which has been plagued with issues over the past few years resulting in the airline scaling back some of its route plans.
Cathay Pacific New Premium Economy Seat

Cathay Pacific’s New A350 Premium Economy

Cathay Pacific has had a Premium Economy cabin for quite a few years now but its new A350 aircraft are set to be fitted out with an entirely new cabin and, up until now, we haven't really know what to expect. Now Australian Business Traveller has broken the news that the new Cathay Pacific Premium Economy seat will be the B/E Aerospace MiQ seat that, coincidentally, has also been chosen by American Airlines for their new Premium Economy cabin. And it looks pretty good:

Cathay Pacific A350 Latest Route Updates

Cathay Pacific took delivery of its first Airbus A350 earlier this week and it hasn't taken the Hong Kong based airline very long to add the new aircraft to a few more of its routes. Although the schedules have been very fluid up until now, we've known for a while that Hong Kong - Manila would be the aircraft's first flight and that the A350 would then go on to operate on routes to Taipei, Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City and Singapore (schedule details here) before being added to some longer haul routes.
