Continued from part I
15 June 2010
Los Angeles (LAX) – Hong Kong (HKG)
Cathay Pacific CX883
Aircraft: B777-300ER
Reg:B-KPH
1st Flight:05 May 2008
ETD: 2350
ETA: 0530+2
Seat: 1A (First Class)
Flight time: 13hr 51min
Preflight
After an almost long 8 days in LA and Vegas, its time for me to make the long journey home. Arrived at LAX with almost 3 hours to spare. After checking in, I took my last few puffs for the next 15 or so hours and then its off to park my butt in the One World First Class Lounge. 2nd time in this lounge and although this time round its not so crowded, food wise, it was pretty tasteless. Lounge is about 45 percent capacity.

Bus gate to those weird satellite buildings

just about to enter the building to get onto our bird to Hong Kong


Inflight
After being bussed to the gate, I was the 3rd person to be seated in the First Class Cabin. Like the sector inbound, only 1 spare seat in First class.

I am starting to love the B773ER

Night scenes at LAX and cabin in the dark

A very cheerful crew onboard again. Soon after a very long taxi and take off, meal service began and I also watched a movie on the avod.

After that I managed to sleep for almost 10 hours straight. When I woke up, I freshened up and at the same time requested for breakfast to be served.
Nearing Hong Kong and meaning its time to wake up, freshen up and time to eat…again


Overall, a great flight and great CX inflight crew. Looking forward to my next first class suite experience with them.

Sorry I did not write any notes on this sector as I was really a walking zombie although I had a really long sleep on the inbound flight from LAX. I will just let my pictures do the talking for me.

Thanks for the TR, great pictures, what camera do you use?
The seats in the Business Class looked a bit dated but hey, only 4 hours long.
All that food looked really good.

Great report.

I'm not sure I like the look of the new F seat. It's almost like they stuck an extra half a seat on to the side of an existing seat. It creates a lot of extra bumps and ridges.

Believe it or not, for all my TR its just a simple tiny Canon Ixus is100. But i have just changed to the newer IS130, also from Canon. For my holiday shots, i am now using the new Sony Nex 5.

I have to agree with you that although they are not that nice to look at, they are extremely comfortable when you are in them though

Trust me, you are not the only one, every time i read a F report on A.net, i will be also munching away on some snacks at the same time!
