I flew CX888 and CX889 recently (only the JFK
portions). We had an A343 in both directions (to YVR
on a Thursday, and to JFK
on a Monday), but, as indicated above, the A346 is on that route several times a week. The economy class on the A343 was not so good. The food service was decent, although the flight attendants only came through with one drink service on each flight. On the flight back to JFK
, when I walked back to the galley for a refill on my water, they made it seem like it was an inconvenience for me to interrupt their conversation and ask for some water. The PTV system played all movies simultaneously, thus making it very difficult to watch another movie from the beginning after you finished your first movie. In other words, it was not "on demand." The seats were not the most comfortable seats either. There was also a huge gap between the seat and the window, making it difficult to prop a pillow against the wall. All that being said, the fare between YVR
was unbeatable...it was quite a bit less than $300 r/t, including taxes, etc.
