Review – Cathay Pacific Regional Business Class – Hong Kong to Seoul – 777-300

We had a long walk to our gate from The Pier lounge, since our plane was scheduled to leave from gate 18.

What luck! =( There was already a pretty big crowd when we got to the gate. Boarding began shortly after we arrived.

Review – Cathay Pacific Business Class – Vancouver to Hong Kong – A350

Cathay Pacific introduced their A350 service between Vancouver and Hong Kong on March 28th, 2017.  This route is pretty special because it was the very first A350 route to Canada. There was a pretty big celebration on the day of the inaugural flight, and we even braved the torrential downpour to snap a photo. The route operates every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 9:30am.
