Hello everyone….welcome back to my trip report with Cathay Pacific again
At his time im traveling to Taipei, so my flight would be like CGK-HKG-TPE, i choose CX because i just want to try the A350 series :)) however im not expecting their service since i few a lot with them
CX has around 4x daily flight from CGK to HKG and has a good connection for those going to US or EU.

Lets pictures tells….

I go to the airport at 10pm since that time is not much traffic and i used UBER took only 40 minutes. arrived at the check in counter arround 11:15 and it was empty i guess all pax has been checked in and in the waiting area. Check in Staff offering me to move me to seat 59H which is priority seat cost 50$ and free for me…sounds good

My boarding pass all the way to TPE, while waiting announcement im proceed to the small lounge before the security check point for some coffe and cigarette

The New seat of A350 is quiet comfortable, below multi functional head rest is very helpful to support your neck even your chick,

    Thanks for your report.
    It always nice to enjoy the new plane.

    I took the same plane as you onboard, which is B-LRM.
    However, it was a horrible maintenance in the plane.

    Hi Andrafly, thanks for sharing this new report and series on CX's beautiful new A359. The cabin interiors look great. I'm not a huge fan of green, but the green of the seats is actually quite nice. Those seats are really great, especially the headrest! Btw, did you mean to have all the grades at 5/10, or maybe they fell out for some reason? Just wanted to point that out so you could put them back. Thanks for sharing!
