The flight leaves at ungodly hour of 7:25 am, and that means getting up at 4 am to get to Adelaide Airport (note: we were warned by Cathay of a potential strike which did not happen)
When we reached ADL, the sun has not come out yet!
The CX check-in counters, to the right of the security
CX J passenger is granted access to the QF Club
Very proactive service in the lounge: the lounge attendant immediately came and offered me coffee or tea. I took tea. Other than that, the lounge hot food selection is somewhat limited.
In ADL, the concourse is shared between domestic and international flights. So we needed to leave the club early to clear departure immigration. When we reached the contained area, the flight was not boarding yet.
Sunrise as seen from my seat:
A customary J shot
Noise cancelling headphones
Pre-breakfast drinks: Smoothie and Fruit Juice
Cold plates: Fruits, Bread/Pastries of choice, Museli. Tasted okay, portions a bit small though. Definitely liked the strawberry jam
Hot plate: Omelette. Very disappointing: the omelette was so overcooked that it was so tough like plastic. Did not eat much.
The bed: incredible width and length. Not bad.
Over the equator
Pre-lunch drinks: Champagne, Sparkling Water and Nuts.
Starter: Everything bar the bread was ice cold, but the bread was lukewarm. Worst garlic bread I have ever had in my life!
Overcooked salmon for main.
One of the better food today
A mean cup of HK style milk tea was one of the best things of Cathay J
Another thing of Cathay J is the good amenity kit
Thus ending the somewhat underwhelming J trip with Cathay
Overall, an underwhelming showing by Cathay. Poor catering on a day flight is always problematic. Not updating the IFE selections despite it being the first day of the month is somewhat a disappointment. Very disappointed and not value for money.
