Cathay Pacific Business Class

A couple of years ago I flew (and reviewed) Cathay Pacific’s business class. I wasn’t impressed. Whilst seats were great I was left cold by the service and disappointed by the meals. On a recent trip to Europe I decided to give them another go – this video shows how it went.

I must say, in my opinion, Cathay Pacific have really turned it around. Their crew were friendly, happy and engaging – they were eager to please and their service was top notch. The meals too were a vast improvement on Cathay’s previous offerings.

On this Cathay business class review I also cover the lounge at Adelaide Airport, boarding, take off, the Cathay Pacific business class seat, the Cathay inflight entertainment system, amenities kit and landing in Hong Kong. Join me and we’ll indulge in the luxury of Cathay Pacific.

peter berrett says:

Thanks Dennis for the video. I’ll be flying in J MEL-ADE then CX 176 in early June. I’ll be sure to wear my Qantas Pjs to protest against the lack of CX Pjs!

Looking forward to some lekker food and comfort.

william hunt says:

Len Crites says:

Dennis, are viewer’s really interested in the menu on each flight?

Bilbo Malice says:

I was on a Cathay Pacific flight from Auckland NZ and stopped over in Hong Kong then flew to London 8 days later after landing in Hong Kong but I flew in economy whilst moving to the U.K

Andrew Golledge says:

I’ve flown exclusively with Cathay for the last two years and have to agree their service and food offerings are excellent these days. The 330 you flew on is good, but the 350 is just that little bit better. I hope you got to experience that on your onward flight from Hong Kong.

Judith Fisboin says:

Never to early for champagne! LOL

Simon Furber says:

Nonsense. You must be joking !! Just flew August 2018 on CX SYD/LHR then ROM/SYD in Business on 777. Clueless OR NO service. Drab cabin. Rock hard bed. Dreary food. No snacks at all between meals SYD/HKG. NEVER AGAIN.

Peter Yeong says:

No PJ’s in Biz class? Why not ? Cheap, cheap ,cheap.

Andrew Stuart Catton says:

Dennis, am thinking of flying Cathay Pacific to Copenhagen early next year. But this trip is a treat trip by going J class so still trying to work out the best airline to treat myself on. Have no interest in the Middle East, so prefer HKG or SIN, or even BKK. Let me know what you think would be the best way to make the most of a once in a lifetime trip….

達人遊戲 says:

Cathay Pacific! Proud of HongKong!

Jimmy Scott says:

I really enjoy your reviews Dennis. Thanks for putting them together

One World Flyer says:

Thanks for this video Dennis! I’m glad you enjoyed your flight with Cathay!

supitchaya srichumpoung says:

Would all A330 Cathay aircrafts have the same seat like your review?

Vinod Mirchandani says:

Excellent video as usual Dennis. I’ll be flying with them on there A330 in Business class from Hong Kong to Mumbai soon. Heard that their Premium Economy is not too bad either. Keep up the good work

executive services Sydney says:

I must admit, I view your vlogs before I book my flights

John P says:

Hey Dennis, great review, makes me feel good about my future trip: 15 hours Chicago to Hong Kong in early Spring. I hope the food is good and maybe even get a first class upgrade. Subbed

Alexander Dunn says:

Tom Tennant says:

Hi Dennis, love the videos! A really good friend of mine, Ed, and I watch them religiously. He just had a baby called Jack, any chance of a mention in your next vid? It would make his year!

wheatwild says:

Your reviews are some of the best on you tube, Dennis. Well made, well edited and filled with all the necessary and interesting details we look for when watching this type of videos. Well dine. Looking forward to the next one.
Btw, if you don’t mind me asking, why are you in Egypt so much?

Kyle Ko says:

As a Hong Konger, I’d say Cathay is the best!

John P says:

Thanks! I subbed. Flying Cathay Business 15 hours Chicago to Hong Kong soon and food looks great!

Les Parker says:

I fly business with them often. I agree with your comments. It’s very good.

Kiwi NZL says:

Awesome flight review Dennis,thanks for uploading this video!.

Mo H says:

lovely post. I love hong kong and cathay. looking for more videos!

SLCQD says:

Thank you for this review Dennis. It seems Cathay quality is really uneven from one flight to the other. We were disappointed with the crew in A350-900 business class in april for BRU-HKG and HKG-BRU. Food was also not great, just OK.
It’s the same everywhere but great crew makes a big difference. Just flew with my wife and kids 747-400 BA First LHR-IAD and JFK-LHR last week, crew was much nicer on the second flight (forgot to tell them that) and believe me or not, I would fly BA First class again… but not business class, bad food, bad crew, bad product.

roastbeefdinner says:

i have flown Cathay business class 4 times this year on the 777 Boeing….i loved it! The stewards are not as personable as the ones on Lufthansa but the service seems to be a bit better.

jovialjinx says:

OMGosh! You are one handsome dude Dennis! Great videos. Your good looks and affable style help too. 🙂

Peter Yeong says:

Cathay reversed herringbone seating in Biz Class ? Excellent. Hard to beat. Service? So-so. SQ, QF Ek better. Even MH . Food? So-so . Cant compare with QF ,TG Thanks for the video.

tom m says:

Another informative video- always a pleasure to watch & learn!

Joshua Chan says:

Finally another Cathay review… was waiting for that!!

Simon Furber says:

Btw your culinary standards are obviously not high.

Luke Dalgety says:

Dennis, your reviews are some of the best on YT..keep up the great work…From New Zealand
