Lets continue the snapshots as I take a look at Cathay Pacific between Dusseldorf and Hong Kong aboard CX0376.
The route is a new one for Cathay Pacific, which started operations on 1st September 2015, operating four times a week between Hong Kong and Düsseldorf.
It’s a Boeing 777-300ER. The plane operates in a four class configuration (First, Business, Premium Economy and Economy Class.
The seating aboard these planes is a reverse herringbone style seating
In seat mode, it’s reasonably comfortable. In bed mode… well, I got a good amount of sleep on the way out (and even more on the way back)
In flight Entertainment
In flight Entertainment is brought to you by a Panasonic Aerospace system – and called Studio CX. Navigation is by touch or by a remote.
Navigation is easy enough, but content… could had been better. It wasn’t bad, but there could had been more choices.
And the annoyance of four minutes of adverts before the start of each programme is more than annoying.
Take off and flight
A nice smooth takeoff, but there were plenty of bumps on route – stopping hot drink services every now and again.
Düsseldorf airport from the air. Yes Heathrow, a major regional airport has two airports. You have two too.
Food and Drink
Nuts and Champagne to start.
Noodle and Wonton soup – a bit of a challenge to be served due to turbulence. None the less – it arrived once the chop settled down.
Breakfast tray – fruit and muesli.
Cooked breakfast (no, I wasn’t in the mood for congee. In fact, I’m never in the mood for congee).
The plane arrived on time and on the chocks at Hong Kong International Airport – at the far end of the airport.
