As usual, internet check-in had already been done, hence we just had to drop off our bags and get our boarding pass issued.
Beautiful design of the terminal

A closer view of the layout.
Inflight entertainment system, with a USB cable provided for charging. Another plus point is the holder below the entertainment system for passengers to place their personal items in. The touchscreen is very responsive. No more remote controls were provided.
Seat pitch was good for me, as my height is only 1.65m, approx 5 foot 4 inches. Inflight magazine for September 2014 and Safety card as shown.
Wing view before takeoff. The rain had stopped at that time.
The planned flight path of the day. The captain reported that the flight to Bangkok would take 2 hours 11 minutes.
Point of origin: Hong Kong.
At this point of time, the captain informed us that our flight was subject to an indefinite delay, which meant we had to stay on the tarmac till ATC issued further instructions. Crew thus sprang into action by offering drinks and the entertainment system was activated to keep us occupied. The delay lasted less than an hour and we pushbacked more than an hour behind schedule.
Some plane-spotting when taxiing to Runway 07R for takeoff. Cathay Pacific Cargo B747-400

Taxiing to 07R for takeoff.
Takeoff was extremely shaky and the aircraft was being hit by strong winds from the typhoon during the 1st few minutes after takeoff.
Meal service commenced about 45 minutes into the flight. My mum had this option, which is chicken porridge.
Breakfast tray meal presentation
I had chosen the sausage with eggs option.

Cathay Pacific Food: Breakfast service was fairly good. Crew: Crew were efficient in serving drinks during the delay, and were fast in responding to passengers' requests.Crew always put on a smile Entertainment: The touchscreen on this plane is very responsive and quick. The seat's functions could be controlled with the system, such as reading light, screen brightness and volume.
Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) Immigration was fast and many F&B options are available. Airport is very clean and signage is clear.
Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) Immigration took about 20-30 minutes as there was always a long queue. Reclaimed baggage straightaway after clearing immigration.
