Thank you for a magnificent report. I particularly liked your narrative about the Tom Bradley experience. You capture the atmosphere of the place and the attitude of indifference of the ground staff perfectly. I've had similar experiences at LAX and also at JFK and MIA, leading me to suspect that it is inherent in the US system. The terminals and ground staff really undermine the otherwise great service usually experienced on board the international carriers, although it is consistent with what you exprience on board the US domestic carriers.

Absolutely Fabulous trip report! I must now book trans-Pacific passage in CX. The fresh Orchid was the seller.

I very much enjoyed your report Airpearl, well done, excellently written. The closest I've ever got to first class is seat 1A on EasyJet.  crying 

The size of the seats on CX first class made me shout out. Amazing. One day my time will come, maybe.

Quoting Airpearl (Thread starter):
and then a “minor” avionics problem that needed “a ten minute fix”

Nice TR! Sounds like they may have done a IRU (B744 inertial reference unit) alignment to address that issue.
DingDong, honey, please answer the doorbell!

Great TR,
Sounds like a true experience in CX first class. That is at the top of the bucket list.
