Thanks Carfield, nice read & pictures as always.
Totally agree with the amenities comment, PJ’s should be served, especially on the SIN/EWR vv route, that’s a long flight - which I did enjoy, but found the catering odd.
Great report & pictures, thanks for sharing.
Mint does look a good product, must try it!
Airlines send their best aircraft on their most valuable routes. A350-1000, or any airbus wide-body for that matter, is not good enough for premium routes - What a daft thing to say, obviously a Boeing fan boy..... I would say the width of A350-1000 is not enough for a 1-2-1 F layout. F passengers e...Jump to post
Reading Australian media reports on the incident it seems the majority of the injured where not wearing seatbelts. I always leave the seatbelt on for the whole flight, and actually get annoyed if the person next to me removes mine as they could then land on me and cause injury. . - people actually ...Jump to post
Thanks for sharing.
I flew the final EWR-SIN A340-500 flight and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I recently flew the same flight as you, though in J. Flight was almost completely full, great service & food, slept a good 8-10 hours, it’s a great experience!
Great read & pictures as always Carfield, thanks for posting.
Westjet J looks good, work to be done still, but if they keep the pricing right, they can take market share.
Reading the article, I took it the death penalty was more for those flying drones or shining lights at planes, not taking pictures.Jump to post
The US 3 flying the 737 MAX planes have relatively small fleets, I expect the odd cancellation here and there with a bit of re-booking will sort the issue without too much grief?Jump to post
Quite a small J cabin vs the current High J cabin, would have expected about 80 J and a smaller Y cabin given the 744 High J is 86 seats.
Going to miss the BA 744 upper deck J cabin!
After observing this thread and many other A380 related posts not just in recent weeks but in general, it really shocks me about how much joy a large number of members are taking from seeing the A380 line close. Every opportunity some get, they will say the most ridiculously negative things about w...Jump to post
I think the Airbus order was a legacy from Continental. United are Boeing true and true... I guess that explains all those A320s that United had. To be fair, I think the A320's were all bought for TED and were just shunted to mainline when that operation went bellyup. But I do believe that post you...Jump to post
My impression is that Delta may be satisfied with the A350; that it fills a specific flight profile they have and does it well enough. However, they are not enamored with it based on the deferral of scheduled deliveries. I'm not sure anything else can really be deduced at this time. Have a great da...Jump to post

CX's A359s aircraft were uprated to 277T, and IAD is operated with an A35K not A359.
Don’t understand the point, same service but cheaper.
It would have made more sense to drop F, but offer these former F seats to their/OW higher status passengers in pad J.
The short haul catering is much improved, do like the beef salad, it is particularly good.Jump to post
Nice read and pix as always Carfield.
I saw this plane in HKG in October, must have been on crew training prior to officially entering Service.
I just want to ask because I wasn't old enough when 9/11 happened... what was it like photographing airliners back then? I've heard of stories where spotting planes was very easy and hassle-free at most airports. Quite a few even had observation decks or dedicated areas to watch planes. Then 9/11 h...Jump to post
I quite like HNL myself, the open air spaces and walkways are wonderful.
Good to see UA investing here, they are the no 1 of the big 3 to the islands.
Fantastic pictures, such a shame they don’t do tours, I’d definitely be taking one!
Wow, I did wonder what they served on the later flights, that’s a bit shocking.
Surely a small salad and a slice of pizza would be ok, it’s not as if the ticket prices are that much cheaper on the later flights!
I don’t mind just a drinks service on an hour or so flight.
Not flown BA long haul in Y for about 15 odd years, but it always seems to be pretty reasonable & I don’t recall having any complaints myself. These days it’s a mix of WTP & Club, I just feel the need for more space. Re the catering on this fligh, looks good, except the breakfast offering, w...Jump to post
Nice read & pix again, thanks for sharing.
Flew CX F 3 years ago, HKG-LHR, best flight I have ever had, fabulous crew, service & catering.
Nice read & pictures, thanks for sharing. I flew the same plane same day back to MAD, full in all classes. The new plane and stea in J is great, what annoys me is the slow service. IB could easily to a J class drinks run prior to lunch/dinner, like BA do, but they don’t. They are also slow at co...Jump to post
Nice read, always a great narrative, and pictures as usual.
Nice shots of the volcano, funny it was erupting when we were on Bali 3 years ago.

I’m flying CI in J YVR-TPE-HKG soon, certainly looking forward to it based on your experience.
Looks a pretty standard breakfast, had the same meal SEA-LAX on October 2017.Jump to post
Used A330’s seem the safest bet here.Jump to post
All depends upon where you sit, but from my experience, the 350 is quieter than the 788 if sitting forward of the engines.Jump to post
Nice read and pictures, thanks for sharing.
Not a 787 fan but the SQ J cabin/seats look good.
I dont often comment on here, mainly because the threads so often turn into silly arguments. The fact that this thread went the same way seems endemic. Strangely the original comment about intercontinental was factually correct , no where in the English language definition is there any mention of l...Jump to post
Nice read and pictures as always, good to see you are still posting. Flown the new CW product twice now, vastly superior soft product improvement and some of the best food I have eaten in the air. My last flight’s catering x JFK was fantastic, better than CX! Looking forward to the new CW seat on th...Jump to post
