Cathay Pacific HKG – LAX Economy Review
Flew CX flight 880 from HKG to LAX. The flight is schedule for 1155pm departure and 830pm arrival. The flight was delayed twelve minutes and was a fairly normal flying experience for a North American flight, I was seated in economy seat 61G and basically slept most of the way aside from the food times, which is served about one hour after takeoff and two hours before landing.
They had wok fried fish, stewed beef, or a vegetarian pasta. I selected the fish and thought it was extremely tasty for airplane food. The portion size I also found adequate for economy class.
I’ve posted about Cathay long haul flights in the past so there’s no much to talk about, good flight, and no gripes other than having one of the last pieces of luggage come out on the belt. The new economy seats are great, reclines a lot, the TV screen is nice and touchscreen, USB port to charge your electronics, and nice little cup holders, cubby spots, and coat hook.
By the way, Tom Bradley’s immigration facilities are still under construction and a bit of a mess. They don’t process citizens fast enough and you need to walk through this maze. Hopefully those will be rectified soon.
