REVIEWS:

Thomas van Woerkom 

“Booked a last minute flight on a fifth freedom flight from Cathay Pacific between Bangkok and Singapore as they offered the cheapest tickets for me. I was not able to check in online and via check-in counters received a seat with my girlfriend at one of the emergency exits which gave me tons of legroom, but no window to watch. The flight departed slightly late. IFE screens available and a good tasting meal was served en-route. Luggage took a very long time to appear.”

Yuxie Zhuang 

“Hong Kong to Ho Chi Minh City. The average service I think. The cabin crews would like passengers to get some rest, so the meal service(all kinds) started as the seat belt sign turned off. The meal was great, as refreshment at night, especially the curry fish rice. But the crews, at first, said they would just provide tea or coffee when they cleared meal trays, as a result, that they focused on it really after we finished the meals, without sparing space to provide a hot beverage.”
