Departure 10.30 pm
Seat # 86 A ( upper deck Window )
Check in- The TB
terminal at this time of the night was very crowded, I checked through the CX
First Class checkin which was very swift and the TA
was excellent. She gave me a priority pass which was really nice I was able to clear security swiftly. Nice touch, Great start!
Lounge- Nothing compared to the flag ship lounge of CX
. But according to the space each airline is given this is adequate as I didn't spend much time here.
Boarding- This was done in a very orderly manner the First and business along with the elite members got priority boarding.
Inflight service- I was greeted at the door and I proceeded to my seat in the upper deck. Very poor selection of magazines onboard this flight. This is my 14th flight on CX
and its one of my favorite airlines. I am also a Platinum member with AA
. After take off the CX
service began, On this flight the crew were rather unfriendly. The chief purser melody and the FA
ken did a horrible job by rushing through the service, it was as if they were going to catch the midnight train, they seem to be in such a hurry. Even the best airline has a off day and this was a day that CX
was completely off. The FA
's were rude in a very subtle manner. I sincerely think CX
is one of the best airlines along with SQ
but on this flight by far one of the worst flights i have been on CX
. The food was awful in J class for that kind of money the food was tastless. The brunch on board has not changed in the last year its the same thing.Terrible flight!
Regal airport hotel
- I checked into the airport hotel which is a five star hotel, was great! CX
was paying for this, and this really did make up for the trip. I got a deluxe room overlooking the run way at HKG
. The b'fast and luch buffets were glorious! Absolutely marvelous! Truely five stars! Super food! Great Hotel, my 10th time here.
More to come about my trip to Colombo on CX NEW
