Seriously? Using outer-bay gates for an A330?

The PTV wasn't working at that moment but soon it had been fixed.

Naming yourself Hong Kong Airlines but instead you used simplified Chinese.

Since it was a morning flight, only a bun was given, meanwhile it was quite delicious. Comparing to CX's wrap, I'd rather have this.

Somehow for some reasons, there wasn't any movies to watch in the IFE system.

    Thanks for sharing this report!

    Great plane for a two hours flight! :)

    Maybe the AVOD wasn't activated on such a short flight?

    Thanks for sharing! It is funny that Hong Kong airlines uses simplified Chinese. Probably due to parent airline Hainan ordering their aircraft. Too bad the IFE wasn't fully functional, but then again it's a very short flight.

    Thanks for sharing this report with us!

    When I was just at HKG, there were several KA A330s boarding by paxbus so it's not too uncommon.

    What is HX doing with this bright orange and green headrests? Based on the lavatory stains, not a plane in a very good condition. Also a shame about the non-functioning IFE.

    It looks like HX has also downgraded their catering on the HKG-TPE routes, we had see this with CX recently as well.

    Very non-traditional clothing selections for the safety card...
