Photo review of Cathay Pacific flight from Sydney to Hong Kong in Business

Hello,
Welcome to my new flight report and in this report I will cover CX110 from SYD - HKG in J

Check-in and security check was quick with nobody in line in front of me, and I make my way to the Qantas Business lounge

Not so many people in the lounge now, but it does get very crowded after.

Breakfast

The selection was kind of limited.

After the breakfast, I went for a tour in the terminal and then went to the gate.

Aircraft: B-LAP ( 4 years old)
Model: Airbus A330-343


The boarding started 1hr late. So I went for another tour, when I was back to the gate, the general boarding already started.
Only 1 jet bridge was used so there was some jam on the jet bridge.

ISM was greeting passengers at door 1L, although I boarded with Y pax, she still greeted me by name when she saw my boarding pass.

My seat 20A. I always prefer 20A on A333.

PDB was severed with a choice of orange juice, apple juice and water.
I picked orange juice.

Because we are already so late, after the boarding was completed, door was quickly closed and we are on our way to HKG.

Start with warm nuts.

After the main, crew came with a cart with fruits and cheese.
I declined cheese, and just went for some fruits.

The place fruits on the plate in front of you, which I think was nice.

Then it was time for desserts.

The desserts tasted awesome, and I was so surprised to find that there were 2 choices. It was only 1 choice before.

Pralines to finish.

The bed was really good to relax.

On approach to HKG, we were assigned to a holding pattern.

Landed about 20 minutes late, at 3:30pm

Overall, it was a great flight. The crew were friendly, and I was addressed by my surname. Before we start our decent, the crew came to me to inform me that my connecting flight was delayed so they will put me to an earlier flight, and when we disembark, the crew came to me again and reminded me to contact the ground staff. Great service.

The catering was good, higher than my expectation from CX.

Overall, I really enjoyed my flight.

Thank you for your reading.
