Cathay Pacific First Class HKG-LAX

At around T-50, we headed out for the long, long, long walk back to Gate 4.

Hong Kong - Los Angeles
Cathay Pacific 880
12:15a-8:40 -1
November 17, 2016
Departed 6/8
Seat 1A

Priority boarding, CX style.  

Yeah, the cabin is a little dated and the suites don't have doors, but it is still a very nice and spacious 1-1-1 configuration 6 seat cabin.  And Cathay reliably releases F award seats inside the last 7-10 days.

Now that's a pre-departure beverage!

Pre-departure amuse bouche was some kind of chilled salmon mousse.  Seriously yuck.  The cracker was tasty though.

The current Cathay First Class amenity kit.  OK, this is pretty pathetic.  

Tonight's menu, not fancy binder, just a paper menu stuffed with extra pages of stuff...

German wine promotion?   Really??    

Not that it mattered, as immediately after take-off, I asked our FA to make my bed, and do not wake me.   Popped an Ambien and sleep like a baby for nearly 7 hours in a very comfy bed.

When I finally surfaced, I was pretty hungry.  The cheeseburger was delicious... grilled Australian grain fed beef burger with swiss cheese and pickled gherkin. 

Oh yeah!


Two happy campers almost home after just over 72 hours.
