After 11 years, I took the flight of Cathay Pacific again.
This flight is from Hong Kong to Taipei. I was a short flight and duration is about 1 hr 30 mins.
It was a sunny for travel, just missed the Taiwanese food for 3.5 months.

Conclusion

The flight of CX which is sightly improve. The cabin is comfortable and the seat is comfy for the long haul flight.
On the other hand, the flight crew is polite and let us feel like family.
Overall, B777-300(ER) is a nice plane for this flight. But sadly heard that, CX may use 3-4-3 layout of B777-300
and B777-300(ER) later.
