Cathay Business Class Review San Francisco (SFO) to Hong Kong (HKG) and New Delhi (DEL) B773 and A330, Centurion Lounge SFO/Cathay Pacific Lounge SFO/Centurion Lounge Hong Kong Reviews

I had just flown over the Pacific a few days before this trip and was looking forward to enjoying one of my favorite business class products (especially for sleeping) again.

Garuda Business Class Review Jakarta (CGK) to Bali (DPS) using A330 and Garuda Business Class Lounge Jakarta Airport (Terminal 3)

Garuda Indonesia uses the international configuration for a number of flights between the busiest airports in Indonesia Jakarta and Denpasar. Terminal 3 at Jakarta airport was just inaugurated a few weeks ago and everything is still shiny. It looks more than Singapore Changi Airport than what you are used to from Jakarta airport.

Cathay Pacific Business Class Review Hong Kong (HKG) to Bahrain (BAH) via Dubai (DXB) A330 CX 745

After my 10-day ‘layover’ in Hong Kong (and after exploring Phnom Penh and Hanoi), I was curious to see how much I’d like the A330 configuration for Cathay Pacific Business Class.

I had been on Cathay Pacific First Class (Review) a few times and also on the New York – Hong Kong on Cathay Pacific Business class – but never on that combination – so it was time try again before prices for Cathay Pacific First Class would go ballistic due to American Airlines AAdvantage devaluation.
