There was plenty of legroom, for a 'normal' height person, compared to other long haul airlines I've flown with. Seats were comfy too, despite the 12hours in it. Great choice of in flight entertainment. I managed to catch up on a few films I'd missed at the cinema. The food choice was Western or Eastern. They didn't seem to run...

Seat is comfort. Service is very good. The crew response for your request is very quick. Landing is smooth and comfort. I will choose Cathay Pacific if I go to Taiwan again. One more thing, the flight is a short trip and the food is light (sandwich).

Good flight with good service. Food was okay like al flights are. Nice air conditioning and outstanding entertainment. The 13 hour flight felt shorter having so many movies and series to watch. Good choice. Hong Kong airport is just very big so had to run to catch our connecting flight.

The third leg of our month long vacation was a great experience as we flew on the A350-900 service on this 3.5 hour flight. I was a bonus to have flat bed configuration for a regional flight. Much better Business Class experience compared to the old 777-200 or 300 regional Business class. Makes one fell like you have paid for...

A very delightful flight on economy. Great service, and equally delicious hot meals served. Very warm and hospitable flight attendants. And the movies are current. Even for economy, comfortable seating and the foot rest was nice.

I was flying on a 333 plane and had a window seat. The space was bigger than I thought as there was a little space between the seat and the wall of the plane. The dinner served was okay, it was a Taiwanese style minced pork rice. Much better than the pastry served on the plane I took from Hong...

As a frequent flyer and very supportive of Cathy over the years , this flight in premium Economy was below expectations. I was holding a business class ticket. I had to change the date and even with more than two weeks notice there was no available seat so very reluctantly had to accept premium Economy seat I double checked luggage...
