Nearly a years long planning, culminated in our flights with Cathay, Sydney, Hong Kong, London and return. Having never flown Cathay before, and relying on friends comments we took the plunge.
My wife and I were pleased with their customer service from the booking November 2017, and having to rebook an earlier flight, due to my son getting married, and the actual flights. Nothing was too much trouble. We flew Premium Economy due to my height and Cathay one of the few services with P/Econ. having a 2, 4, 2. seating arrangement. Met with a glass of champagne and the service got better. food was great. Funnily enough on the menu, the food didn't sound great, but the food was absolutely scrumptious.
Noise cancelling headphones took most of the engine drone away and enjoyed a plethora of movies, documentaries, games etc.
Would definitely fly Cathay again.
