I've arrived Taipei Taoyuan International Airport at 3pm, which was 4.5 hours earlier than the departure.
Cathay Pacific's and it's subsidy, Dragonair's (renamed as Cathay Dragon) business class counter was located in T1, section 4.



After check in, I've passed through the immigration (What a long queue!) and went to the lounge of Cathay.

As a conclusion for the lounge, I think that Cathay Pacific's lounge in Taipei was much much better than the one in Hong Kong that I visited last time (The Cabin, For details, please visit: http://flight-report.com/en/report/14150/Cathay_Pacific_CX474_Hong_Kong_HKG_Taipei_TPE ) The lounge in Taipei was spacious compared with the cramped The Cabin Lounge in Hong Kong. Also, there was a diverse range of cuisines for passengers to sample.

Time for boarding

Board! I was welcomed by the ISM and the SP.

I've visited the whole plane from First class to Economy Class and took some pictures when they were empty.

First Class. A big and spacious seat with a big TV screen.


Business Class. The bigger cabin. (11K, my seat, was located in the mini cabin)

Premium Economy Class. I can feel that the Premium Eco Class has a much larger legroom than the Economy Class.

Soon after take off, menu was given out and meal was distributed. I didn't take a picture of the menu but the following was the content of the menu.

FOR STARTERS
Mixed salad with pan fried prawn
thousand island dressing

FOLLOWED BY
Deep fried pork, osmanthus sauce, broccoli
and egg fried rice

Pan fried halibut and shrimp, grilled zucchini,
capsicums, sweet potato gratin
and tomato basil sauce

AND TO FINISH
Raspberry chocolate almond cake
and whipped cream

Freshly brewed coffee
and a selection of teas


I've chosen deep fried pork, osmanthus sauce, broccoli and egg fried rice for my main course. It tasted average.

And the empty First Class

I remembered that as the First Class was empty, one of the SP and the ISM was so free. They were chatting and eating happily in the galley in front of First Class.
