Cathay Pacific

So this has absolutely no wedding relevance whatsoever, but I am compelled to share. I am totally lucky that I get to fly first or business class when I go overseas. I flew Cathay Pacific Airlines for the first time from Manila to Hong Kong. I was totally shocked when I got on the plane. They have the strangest seats! All of the chairs are at angles and each passenger gets his own little pod. No neighbors crawling over you or anything like that. Check it out!

View while sitting in my own pod.

Th tray table and screen on the left pop out and turn towards you for use. The seats goes into a full recline and creates a long bed with the "foot stool" at the bottom. Totally rad for long flights. I'm all about going horizontal!

Pre-flight champagne is a must. Gawd, I am so spoiled! :)

I'm taking Cathay again from Hong Kong to India, so will probably have the same set up. I normally take Thai Airlines, but I got a direct flight this time and I am so stoked. Normally I have a 5 hour layover in Bangkok. Ew. Long layovers blow, especially when they split up equally long flights. This new flight makes me happy happy. Yes, I do believe it's the little things that make all the difference!


  1. oh my that's so interesting! i've never seen anything like it!

  2. I had a setup almost as good in first class on British Air. Wonderful! Especially since I didn't pay for first. I had upgraded to business and they booted me up for the long flight to LA. Way cool.

  3. I've always wanted to fly Cathay! Sigh. One day. Hope you're having a great time, even though it's for business.

  4. I found this blog after a long time which is really helpful to let understand different approaches. I am going to adopt these new point to my career and thankful for this help.
