Hey everyone,

I just got back from a 3-day business trip in Taipei so I thought I'd chronicle the return flight in CX business class. It was a short but enjoyable flight as usual with CX, let me know if the pics aren't working:

Nice report! The Fossil Watch designed by Philippe Starck used to be on my wishlist, but after seeing it for real, It turned out to be a little too big for my wrist. It's a great looking watch though (I had the former rectangular one designed by Philippe Starck, but I had many problems with it  Sad ) By the way: very cool that CX is offering it as an inflight duty free item!

Nice report and photos... like always!

I agree with you on liking a newer cabin. I am more into the shinny bells and whistles then an old chair with marks all over the cabin  Sad

Possibly in June/July I might be trying out CX's international business class. (maybe with the new seats, who knows) It all depends on where I go and who all flies there.

Once again, enjoyed your details and photos!

Flyboy,

Enjoyed reading your report tremendously. I flew CX a lot when I was a kid and have not done so for quite a while simply because I dont have a reason to. But they have left nothing but good memories for me. Can you believe that my last flight with them was on their Tristar??

Look forward to more reports from you.

Cheers
Ryan

Great report. I think it was the stylish SARS mask he was gloating over. Does HKG still have the thermal cameras just before you go step up to the customs desk? I registered blue-green so I guess I was not a walking case of SARS or was that Bird Flue?

Ah, yes the smell of Taipei when you get off the plane and go through customs. I know that smell! Hong Kong also had a distinct smell to it when I arrived from LAX. I did the HKG-TPE-HKG trip on CX 11 months ago. The coach meal was a small sandwich and fruit cup. I visited Hong Kong, Thailand and Taiwan that trip. I loved it so much I am starting to plan my next trip to Asia.

Depressing lights of Hong Kong?? I grew up in the suburbs west of New York City and found Hong Kong to be one of the most exciting 24/7 cities I have ever visited. I was blown away by the density of skyscrapers, neon lights and constant energy. I would love to live in HK.... at least for a couple of years.



I'm leavin on a jet plane. Don't know when I'll be back again....

Nice pics in the link.

I really do envy you having that big glass of champagne at 7 AM. I am sure that puts a nice glow on the flight. The CX cabin colors are cool and relaxing.

I have never been to Hong Kong or Taipei, so I get all my impressions of the area from movies, which has its good and bad points (for example, is everyone in Hong Kong a gangster?).

Thanks for the great report.

Yup! Although it's not as strict as it used to be. People just walk right on through.

Hehe...I agree, Hong Kong has the world's most spectacular skyline. I love the city as a destination, but living here is different. I guess I just can't stay in one place too long.

LOL, well I'm not a gangster for one. Come to think of it, I've never seen any real triad mobsters around, I think that's mainly in the movies. They're too busy controling things from behind the scenes, it's much more lucrative to take a cut of a business's revenues than to send your goons to trash the place.
