So this is my forth report! I didn't really enjoy this flight actually, when I was booking the flight, it's said to be operated by an A333, then it's changed to be a 74E, and on that day, that's a 772 with the out-dated IFE system and old seats.

There's still plenty of time left so I decided to have a pre-flight meal first at terminal 2.

Walking to the gate.

My plane today, a Boeing 777-200. Plane registration HL7500.

Oh my goodness these old seats

Remote control, but it's basically useless with the not working out-dated IFE system.

There were two options, beef with rice and bibimbap. Eventually I had the beef one.

    Haha we can clearly see that you're Asian as European custumers would love to fly in such a cabin for a short haul flight :P

    The IFE doen't seems that bad at all. Is it AVOD?

    Thanks for sharing this Fr with us :)

    The cabin does look old school, but the seats actually look really comfortable. I find that older style seats had more padding and are often more comfortable than new style slimmer seats. Catering looks good, as one would expect from OZ. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you for sharing!

    Nice spotting at HKG despite the very gloomy weather there.

    Visually, the cabin looks terrible, but I'm sure the seats were very comfortable.

    OZ lives up to its reputation of good service, plus the bonus of good catering and good on-time performance make it a very good carrier despite its antiquated cabins.
