Because of the french railway strike, I have to take the plane to Paris from Bordeaux. Here is some pic of the flight
I arrived at CDG at 13:00 and the Check-In open only at 17:00, so I took a lunch in Mc******
Just drop my luggage, I already did the online check-in in order to have the best seat in the plane.
Well it is the 13th report on my channel but only my 3rd on Flight Report
Getting to the gate A38, through security, and duty free area.
The CDG connection building between T2A and T2C is beautiful!!
Despite some negative review of the T2A air side, I found that there's a lot of shop in there!
Waiting in EXKI for the boarding, my plane is in the bubble of the T2A. So I waited in EXKI having a cup of coffee.
The boarding was at 20:15
Cathay Pacific offer to all passengers a large choice of newspaper and magazine
Here is my plane, CX A340-300
The boarding was made by area: Business + MP member - Premium eco - Eco row 75-50 - Others
I was in the others…
This is the previous Cathay Economy Class, the seat has an hard shell so you can't recline it but it glide on itself.
The legroom was perfect for this night flight!

A beautiful sunset while climbing to our cruising altitude.
The Studio CX IFE offers a great choice of movies, TV Shows, Music, there's also a kids mode.
Apertizer Drink + Peanuts not every airlines offers that kind of service
Meal, in the FR in French a lot of Flight reporter said that the meal trays could be better presented, but since the quality of the meal is excellent we don't really care how it's presented.
My first movie of the flight.
Lights were dimmed after the meal service in order to let passenger get some rest.
I've found the best position to sleep into these seats! I slept 6 hours!!
The power socket is behind the tray table, not very easy to use it.
Second meal service
Approach, landing, deboarding…
I have a 2 hours layover here in Hong Kong, here some spotting.
Thanks a lot for reading the next FR will be online this week, I hope…
Paris - CDG
Hong Kong - HKG
What a lovely experience with Cathay Pacific on this night flight. Meals were both excellent and cabin crew really nice to passengers. The IFE is one of the best I ever tried in my traveller life! The old economy seat are quite comfortable for a day flight not for night flight, hopefully I've founded a perfect position to sleep. The cabin crew gave to the passenger, pillows,blanket and headphones just before the pushback. The immigration in Paris was really efficient and the air side was very comfortable.
The Hong Kong airport is one of the best I ever been! The security is very efficient and there's a lot of things to do, to eat, and to buy ;)
