Cathay Pacific First Class: What It’s Really Like

Cathay Pacific First Class: What It’s Really Like

Cathay Pacific is a Hong Kong-based airline with a sterling reputation for world-class service. They serve a wide variety of markets and have long been a stalwart of nonstop flights between Hong Kong and the United States. Cathay Pacific First Class is one of the “aspirational” First Class cabins, one that people save up their miles to fly, and with good reason. I’ve been lucky enough to fly them in First Class four separate times so I’m fairly well-qualified to tell you what it’s like. So sit back, pour yourself some Krug champagne, and take a look at the full experience of flying Cathay Pacific First Class!

I’ll admit, I was breathing pretty heavily. Walking up hundreds of stairs will do that to you. Especially carrying about 20 pounds of camera gear on your back. It was kind of nuts to me that I only had six hours until my flight, because that meant about an hour of hiking and a fairly hefty drive back to an airport notorious for delays at security (I’d end up being the last person to make the flight). What was I doing there? Besides taking pictures? Well, I was completing the most thorough product test of my blogging career: testing the Bluffworks travel pants.

My Five Favorite Flights

Part of being a blogger in the miles and points space is have a roster of good trip reports. While I’d say I flew these flights so I could offer a more thorough analysis and comparison of the various airlines, honestly I really just wanted to fly in really nice cabins and drink lots of champagne!

That said, I want to tell you about some of my favorite flights, for those of you who may be new to Andy’s Travel Blog.
