Cathay Pacific Premium Economy Review B777-300ER DUS-HKG Trip Report

A journey from Düsseldorf to Hong Kong.

It all starts in Germany, I had to fly back to Hong Kong. I thought to myself, what better to fly than to fly my national airline’s 359 back home. Though flying CX would not be the most economical way, it would be the fastest way and I would be able to fly on their brand new A350! This led me to purchase a ticket from Düsseldorf to Hong Kong and shortly later, I chose my seat as well, a window seat to enjoy the wing view of the beautiful A350!

Two days before my flight departs, I saw that my scheduled flight will be operated by a 77W, instead of a 359 as planned. I got so disappointed that my excitement to fly has got past negative. I was also arranged on a different seat, I remember it was near the rear of the economy section.

*I have a feeling that CX somehow also felt my disappointment*

However, when I arrived at the airport and got my boarding pass, I don’t know how exactly I acted, but I felt extremely happy and excited at the same time! Being a valued One World member, the system gave me an upgrade from economy class to premium economy class! The moment when my spirit went from -100% to 200% instantly was crazy.

Thus, ladies and gentlemen, here is my experience on Cathay Pacific’s premium economy product from Düsseldorf to Hong Kong, operated by Cathay Pacific’s B777-300ER, powered by massive GE90s!

claus stimpfig says:

gab es champagner wie bei Air France in der premium eco. Welche Alkoholika wurden ausgeschenkt. was auf jeden fall besser als bei af ist, ist das Metall besteck. Das Essen sieht aber eher durchschnittlich aus

Vexceillion says:

Cathay Pacific International Flight Premium Economy seat is just like Cathay Dragon Regional Flight Economy Seats

When I Travel The World says:

Very nice that you got upgraded to premium economy. But also super disappointing at the same time to be changed from the A350 to the 77W, even though the 77W is a great aircraft. Did you not freeze on the flight wearing shorts ? I need jeans and jacket most of the time on planes they get so cold.

The meal looked good in premium economy, looked tasty.

I’ve not flown premium economy much, but will be flying it this Saturday on BA, so will be interesting to see the comparison.

Fantastic video as always with a great music choice.

FlugFan says:

Great Video, Subbed! What software do you use to edit your content?

Ryan Tse says:

isn’t cathay flying the A350 on the Dusseldorf route?

PanixATK says:

Great video once again. I used Cathay Pacific for my trip to HK then onwards to Japan. Same for return trip back to London. The best airline so far. If ever I want to go back to Japan, I will use Cathay Pacific but would like to check out Korean Airline or FinnAir though.

Amazing videos with stunning editing. One day I wish I could be the same, just reviewing flights. I have a long way to go. 😀

Infrequent Traveler says:

One World Flyer says:

Fantastic review! As always, I admire your editing skills. Would you rather be on the A350 economy class or B77W premium economy? 😀

Air Traveller Congratulations on another exceptional review. Were you using the DJI Osmo? Very smooth filming at the airport and on board the flight. CX is a great product as far as I can see from your video. Thanks again for this informative video and all the effort you put in to getting this out to everybody!

Ziggy J says:

I’m thinking of booking CX Premium Economy from Europe to NZ. Were you able to sleep in those seats?

Great vid AT, always good to know other peoples experiences and get the passenger perspective rather than the ‘company marketing perspective’. But what’s the fab music accompanying the vid? Love to know the name of tune and band, cheers.

camel1945 says:

Take care in A 350 is the seat 5cm smaller!! Not very professional no more Cathay Pacific!!

charles franklin says:

Awesome! Nice job. I like the music. Maybe I know what is the title of the music?

Nicholas Cornish says:

This company will just tell lies. All to easy to make a big profit when you tell the customer one thing and then just goback on it some month later. They cost me 5 London Hong Kong returns. I even when to the head office and all the did was laugh.

HKG Spotter says:

Excellent video mate! Glad you can upgrade to premium economy. I seldom see a premium economy trip report at YouTube
PS. 下次搭國泰會睇下賭城風雲。你係咪泊Gate4?

TK spotting says:

Awesome to see another great video ! just loved it ! it would be perfect, if you have got a window seat, anyway really nice filmed and edited! thumbs up buddy

Karl P says:

Just subbed. Great reviews, like you style, well done!!

Yipii123 says:

So I suppose this must be THE trip report? I randomly got on your channel and I recalled that this must be the one! Brings back a lot of memories!

Fra Hi says:

another great video 1+++

Chiung-hua Tseng says:

It was a surprise to me when my seat was upgraded to premium. I always like to sit on isle side. When I asked the staff if the seat was on isle side, the staff told me that it didn’t matter although it was close to window. So I thought it was an individual seat at the end of premium class.
However, I was very disappointed when I got onto the flight. I think if they will upgrade my seat next time, I will ask them to let me chose my seat; otherwise, I will refuse the offer.
Then, the footplate was out of order. That means I couldn’t use it through the whole night and yes, I was very uncomfortable because I could not place my feet properly.
Still the same, staff never ask customer if they want to have cup of tea or coffee after the meals. It is always like that no matter where I fly from where to where.
The premium class is not as good as I think.
