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 love flying. Right right I get it, you love flying too, but I really love flying. To me the journey getting there is as much fun as the destination. So last November, just before the US Thanksgiving holiday, I flew around the world. In First Class. On some really nice jets. Click through for the story!
I’ve been lucky enough to fly in some amazing first class cabins. Now, before you get all “hey how about some money?” I’ll point out that I used miles and points to book every one of these flights.
So, with that said, let’s get on to the seats! [Click through for the pics!]
Andy shares some of his favorite images of his favorite meals aboard an aircraft!
Shower. Massage. Champagne. A Porsche to drive you to your plane.
All of these things are found at the best airport lounges in the world. The lounge visit is a crucial part of the travel experience for me, particularly when traveling internationally. There’s just something about having a quality meal, a few quality beverages, and a relaxing shower or massage that gets my mind right before I fly.
I get asked pretty frequently to talk about my favorite lounges in the world. I have not visited all of the great lounges out there but I’ve been to quite a few. Let’s take a look at my five favorite lounges and then I’ll tell you about some lounges I want to visit next.
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.
