First time flying with Cathay, check in was really good with on line check in available, really makes a difference. Seats were comfortable and leg room was excellent, both my husband and myself are tall and we had no complaints. Cabin service was customer focused and the food was pretty good. We also flew return to Brisbane via Hanoi and found the over night flight to be just as comfortable with food and service excellent. I would recommend flying with the airline. Check where your seats are located as there are areas in economy with two seats in a row which makes travelling for a couple so much more pleasant, look around row 40-45. Be aware that although this is a partner airline with Qantas, membership does not guarantee entry to either the Qantas Club or Cathay Pacific lounge. Do your homework on this one as we were disappointed as a Qantas member not able to access the lounge.
