Cathay Pacific has published a Lonely Planet “Chicago to Hong Kong” guide on their website (be aware that the guide is a PDF that loads in the browser).

Wonder what the bathroom looks like in Cathay Pacific First Class? Here’s a photo from travel blogger Lisa Lubin’s trip report. Go here to read her review and for photos of the food, the bathrooms, and amenity kits.

Cathay Pacific offers entertainment on demand with the StudioCX service. If you’re lucky enough to be earning Double AAdvantage Miles this month and want to know how you’ll pass the time, go here to see the movie selection.

What’s life like at the back of the plane? Here’s a video tour and trip report of economy class on a Cathay Pacific Boeing 777 from Modhop.

If you’re traveling on the inaugural flight today enjoy the bonus miles and share your review!


    • I saw that yesterday and was wondering if they would update it today. Thanks for the update and the comment!

  1. I think this is a picture of Cathay bathroom on a 747, I do not believe 777-300ER bathrooms are like this one, at least not the ones on HKG-JFK route.



    • Thanks for identifying it. Sadly, I have never seen the inside of the first class bathroom on any CX plane:)

      Appreciate the contribution!
