Hey Everyone, welcome to another trip report. This time just a short hop from Bangkok to Hong Kong.
I met up with a fellow trip reporter at Bangkok airport and we took this flight together, it was a nice short flight, very enjoyable and always nice to be on a wide body for such a short flight.
Here is the the video Vlog trip reporthttps://youtu.be/5BLD0HpYsOM
And now the written one, a bit shorter than usual due to the short flight.
I had just arrived from Copenhagen on Norwegian airlines 787 and landed around 10.30AM, I then decided to head straight to the Cathay lounge to meet up with travelingfoody who had just arrived at the airport after being in Bangkok for a few days.
The Cathay Pacific business lounge was still looking great from my last visit, We decided to eat some lunch and have some drinks as we had a few hours until our flight to Hong Kong
We enjoyed a few celebratory glasses of champagne to kill the time
Before we knew it our time had come to leave the lounge and we took the long walk to our gate to await boarding,
We took a photo outside the lounge, me on the left and travelingfoody on the right
We arrived at our gate to be greeted by our reasonably new Airbus A330-300, being just under 5 years old.
We arrived a bit late and boarding had already started, we just joined the line/que with everyone else
Upon boarding we were greeted with a smile and informed where we could find our seats, we had decided to all sit behind each other, so we could all enjoy the window and aisle seats.
Today I was sitting in 14A
It's always nice to have a reverse herringbone seat
I took a quick look around the seat checking out the features,
I was then greeted and asked what I would like to drink before take off, I went with some Champagne to continue where we had started in the lounge
My Welcome drink also came with a hot towel
Before we knew it we were all closed up and ready for push back
I had not slept the night before on the flight from CPH, so my memory is very hazy about all we did that day
The safety video was then played,
The taxi took about 15 minutes and the captain informed us that the flight down had a few bumps and to keep our seatbelts on even with the light off.
Take off was very smooth as we climbed out of Bangkok
Once up into the cruise I took a look over today's menu
I had decided to give the fish option a try today, and Simon went with the beef
We had another round of drinks before our food choices were given,
It was obviously that we would go for more Champagne,
The crew then prepared our tables for lunch
The fish we pretty tasty, a bit watery but fine for a short flight,
Simon's beef looked like it tasted better
And then some Dessert
There had been a few small bumps in the first thirty minutes of the flight, but the weather on route had cleared up and we enjoyed a nice smooth ride the rest of the way.
I decided just to put my bed into flat mode to snap a few pictures, very nice for a flight time of just over two hours, but no use today.
The flight was very enjoyable and we had an awesome crew, I had flown all the way from London just to meet up with Simon and do this mini trip report. We did this as a test in order to then book some longer flights and do more detailed trip reports in the future.
It had been a great experience and we landed in Hong Kong and I made myself to the regal hotel to crash for the night after being up for a really long time.
I make videos about my airplane travels.
