You may remember my recent post on KE to Hong Kong. Well, what is the best way to Hong Kong from New York City? Would it be KE, Northwest, Continental, Air Canada, United, etc.? This would be in coach class. Looking foward to your responses.

What about Cathay Pacific, do they fly to New York? If so, choosed them, they leave the rest that you have listed for dead.

Yeah--go for Cathay. They are charging some unusually low fares (for CX) especially for this time of the year. I will (finally!!) be flying Cathay to BKK next month- too good of an opportunity to pass up... If you really want to have an adventure, you can always give China Airlines a try!  Big grin

Agree with Zizou about CX. However, a non-stop on CO is hard to beat and CO also have PTV's in economy like CX. Also depends on who you want mileage with. If you are with AA take CX, if you get mileage with UA then take UA.

Continental has the only nonstop flight from NY to Hong Kong, plus they're introducing the new Business First seats on that route.

Continental is excellent especially on the 777. Plus it's the only non-stop. Better than a stop-over somewhere along the route.

What is the seat pitch for CO's Y class???

anyway, let's look at from another perspective, if you fly CX, you can spend more time enjoying their excellent service and entertainment!!!

I would really like to try the polar Continental flight if I was you. But then, in terms of service, I would say CX. But then again, the continental one goes over the poles!!!!!!!!!!! Can't beat that!

Continental since its non-stop and you will have some great views!

Also, if it were me, I would get tons of miles on my WorldPerks account!

If you want to be stuck in a seat for 17 hours and not get to see any planes along the way, go CO.

If you want to have a stop along the route then take CX.

After reading articles on exposure to high radiation flying over the north pole, I opt to stick with ordinary flights myself.

I've never travelled on CO, but I can tell you that CX's is one of the best in the world. They do fly JFK-YVR-HKGon CX889 on a B744. At least you can tell you frens later that you've flown with CX. That makes a pretty good topic/experience.

Yeah, CX is good. But just to let you know that if you choose to fly UA, flight #895 starts at LGA then connects at ORD that will take you direct to HKG. All depends on who you want mileage with and also which airports you want to see along the way.

Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

I am still not a member of a frequent flyer program. But I'm most opting for UA Mileage Plus with Star Alliance. I plan on traveling a lot in college, so choosing one program is necessary. I've looked at all of the destinations I want to hit, and Star looks to be the best, even though I would prefer to choose some one world flights over star flights on some routes. The only reason I am leaning more towards star rarther than one world is that the only one world airline out of ROC in American, and to where I usually fly to from ROC (which is RSW), AA has always been way to expensive. Where as with Star, I have the options of both UA, DL, and maybe in a couple of years... USAirways.
I would prefer to fly CX over UA, but its the whole Star One World thing. Who knows, maybe I will opt for One World. I change my mind all of the time. But I think in the long run, Star would be the better option.
