CX Business Class From LAX-HKG

Thu Mar 25, 2004 7:29 pm

CX Flight 883
Departure 10.30 pm
Business Class
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!

Verdict-9/ 10

CX Lounge- Nothing compared to the flag ship lounge of CX In HKG. But according to the space each airline is given this is adequate as I didn't spend much time here.

Verdict- 6/10

Boarding- This was done in a very orderly manner the First and business along with the elite members got priority boarding.

Verdict-10/10

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!

Verdict-5/ 10

Regal airport hotel
In HKG- 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.

verdict-10/10

More to come about my trip to Colombo on CX NEW regional Business Class!

Superflyer:

Thank you for your report. I especially enjoyed your comments concerning the F/A's service: "rude in a very subtle manner." It's truly an art form, isn't it? While it's subtle, it's unmistakable... and I seem to be at the receiving end all too often. Interesting that one can encounter it even in the premium cabin of a "world class" Asian airline!
