My Trip Report BKK - HKG - NRT

Sat Feb 26, 2000 12:51 am

Hello guys from the chat !! I am now in Tokyo having fun!!!   This is my trip report

Flight CX700 BKK - HKG .. the flight is scheduled to leave at 8:20 so I went to the airport at 7:30 sharp, I checked in properly , I can't remember my seat properly , but it was A330 we ( me and my friend ) sat on the center seat on the right side ( 2 of them ) I got in and I was delighted to see CX new uniform for the FAs , white blouse with multi colored logo of CX's brush stroke , with an ugly jacket ( sorry to say, yellow inside and red on the outside ) The seat configuration was 2-4-2 and I saw their new safety card and barfbag and I was tempted to take them!! We watched the NEW uniform safety demonstrations and we took off, the wierd thing was that, as we were taxiing , we heard this loud noise ( like mouse or rocks rolling through the air vent ) and everyone looked around , the noise was continuious until we took flight, I loved A330 , when we got into the position , i flipped on my PTV and watched the show Jesse ( great commedy ) and Spin City!! it was the old episode though.. then came the food , the choice were scrambeled egg with sausages or fried rice , I chose the egg and my friend chose the fried rice but both of them are terribly bad ( but of course.. which airlines does not have bad breakfast ) I only took a bite and I put on back the foil cover! The flight attendant taking care of us most is called "Mitzuko J. " she's Japanese, however, she did not take care of us that well, I asked her for some blankets and she said.. yes.. but of course.. forgot all about my order.. however other crews ( especially Hong Kong , Indian and Thai ) did their job exceptionally well!!! The flight was short so we landed a while after the meal , but before that I went into the lav. trying to find some goodies.. but of course i did not find any, short after that we landed ( delayed for 15 minutes because of bad weather and fog in HongKong )

Finally we landed in Hong Kong CLK and it looked as nice as it used to! We had 3 hours of lay over so we went to the food court and got some meals , I ate some duck noodles while watching Asiana's 767 , Korean Air 747 and Air China 767 taxi and taking off, it was a great view. I also went to the CX transfer counter to get my WAITING LIST ticket for HKG - BKK on the way back replaced as the travel agency promised that it was confirmed!! turned out it wasn't , I was quite upset. We walked around, I took photos of ( I think Vietnam Airlines A320 ) but doubt it would be added hehehe , we then did some shopping but it was expensive so we went to our gate , I watched SR MD-11 , Malaysia 747-400 and CX 747-400 old color scheme ( yuck ) taking off, just a few feet from the ground the plane disappeared into the fog... It was then our call for boarding of CX500 bound for Tokyo

CX500 HKG - TYO ( NRT ) it was a 777-300 , the seating arrangement was 3-3-3 and it was great , we had the 2 window seats on the right side, the snow onboard was Anywhere but Here , Mickey Blue Eyes or 101 Dalmatians , I watched the other 2 so I chose Anywhere but here , it was a great movie , while watching it the food served , and it was the 2nd best food I've ever tasted in economy class, it was Unagi ( Japanese Eel, very expensive ) on rice and Zaru Soba ( cold buckwheat noodles in cold soup ) , It was.. I must say.. Magnificant!!! The food was so nice and the movie was okay, I really enjoyed that flight , I sat next to an old Japanese man and my friend and the man was snoring like hell so I had to put on my head phone , this time the crew , ( Mai K. ) was really nice , she tried speaking in Thai to us and served us really well, we also had some Haagen Daz Icecream while watching movie , after the movie it was the show Dharma and Greg ( old one so i watched ) and shortly we landed at Tokyo Narita , the best airport in the world )

At Narita , I saw United 747-400 ( many of them ) and 777-200 ( i guess ) NWA 747-200 , 100 and 400 ( only 1 400 though ) and then we went through for the check - in , got picked up at the airport and went to stay with my friend's dad's friend (   ) at the Thai Embassy to Tokyo

I will try to post more trip report for my Air Hokkaido ( Air Do ) flight for TYO - Chitose - TYO and my trip back , on my first A340 ever!!

PS. Me and my friend are only 15.. so please.. do not comment on how un-smart we were on the trip.. this is the first time we travelled by ourselves you know .. I have kept lotsa stuff from the plane and will e-mail whoever for some trades! for Now.. Sayonara!!!

Hi guys,
Thanks for telling us about your trip. It sounds like you enjoyed your layover at CLK, I would have too if I were there. I've never been on Cathay but I know that it is a very good airline, maybe not the best in the world but at least in the top 10. Cathay is part of the One World alliance so I would also fly Cathay if I have to travel within Asia because I get most of my miles on American.
Enjoy your stay in Tokyo.

Cathay Pacific is one of the best airlines in the world American 767. Do not underestimate this airline as it has the best service quality of any airline in the oneworld alliance and in the world.

The top three airlines in the world include: Cathay Pacific, Singapore Airlines and Emirates....and off course Air New Zealand comes in fourth.
