So it was soon the end of my 3-day trip in Osaka and it was time to go home!
Back to the terminal 1 of Kansai International Airport (Sorry the following pics were taken when I first arrived at KIX indeed…I was too rush for the flight to take pics when I was to return HK)
The JR train station at airport
Overlooking at the bridge between the JR station and the Aeroplaza
Received my boarding pass, dropped my luggage, passed the security check and immigration, now running at the airside of the terminal.
Soon we were on the plane which was parked at Gate 4 (Need to get there by a automatic passenger mover). The equipment is a Boeing 777-200 with 3-3-3 economy setting. The flight was not fully loaded so we managed to safeguard the empty window seat. How lucky we were :)
The plane is B-HND, which consists of 42 regional business seats and 293 economy seat.
The latest economy seat in Cathay's fleet
Sorry that I did not take any pic during take off, it was fully dark outside anyway.
As soon as we get to the height snack (peanut) was served.
9-inch PTV for economy seat. The flight info system was not the latest one which I encountered during the outbound flight. This is of 4:3 display and lower resolution compared with the latest one. As shown it took around 4 hours to take us from KIX back HKG, compared with the 2-hourish duration it took from HKG to KIX.
We were soon flying over Kyushu.
Inside the pocket: SHOP the inflight sales catalog, DISCOVERY the inflight magazine which contains recreational content and the list of content in the IFE, as well as the 2016 new safety card (Which the super soft plastic texture made it feel like 10 year old already)
One hot meal was served for this flight. Standard Cathay Econ hot meal, except no haagen dazs…… The appetizer is lemon marinated scallop and shrimp, with a soft roll bread and a raisin cookie
There are 2 options of entree that night (For Cathay 2 options for medium/short haul flight and 3 options for long haul). I picked the beef sukiyaki with steamed rice with black sesame. The other choice is wak-fried chicken in black bean sauce and steamed jasmine rice. It was not a superb meal but not disgusting anyway.
We were then flying over Taiwan before making a right turn heading to HK. I took the pic when we were at Taichung. Such a pretty view.
We were approaching HK and the PTV started showing some arrival info. This one is about the transfer gate for transit pax.
Flight map: Approaching HK
This one is about Cathay's transfer flights later in the night. Mostly are European flights.
Finally arrived and people rush to stand up and wait at the aisle as always.
Scheduled departure: 1930JST Actual departure: 1931JST Scheduled arrival: 2245HKT Actual arrival: 2238HKT
Looking forward to the next journey :)
