Cathay Pacific Business Class Hong Kong To New York CX846


Cathay Pacific Business Class Hong Kong To New York CX846
Filmed on a Nikon D5500 and a Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 lens at 1080p60.
Some interesting facts about this flight: According the captain this flight requires 137 tons of fuel, which is almost the full capacity. On approach to JFK, we did the Canarsie approach which requires a sharp low attitude turn right before the wheels touch the runway. It is not as dramatic as the famous checkerboard approach at the old Hong Kong airport.
Hong Kong CX846 is timed perfectly for connecting flights, especially for business travelers. On this particular flight, the entire business class was full, so no extra amenity kits for me.
For the lounge, I visited The Pier Business class lounge, which just like the first class lounge felt like a comfortable and fancy living room. There was lots of space to lounge around. The showers in The Pier are a bit smaller compared to the first class lounge but it is fully stocked and perfect for a connecting passenger to refresh before their next flight.
The Pier Business Class lounge is built alone one long continuous corridor and includes a tea room, a noodle bar, a regular bar and a food court. The food court had a variety of Western food and desserts, including pizza and cheesecake. A lot of people were in the noodle bar, which seemed to serve the same stuff as The Wing Business Class noodle bar. It is honestly very luxurious to have a bartender for an actual bar in a business class lounge that also doesn’t charge for alcohol. I ordered a Cathay Delight and champagne to enjoy during my layover.
My flight had just arrived from London and the excellent Cathay service started immediately once I was onboard. On the 4 class 777, there is smaller business class cabin immediately behind first class. It is very private and you get served first. It almost feels like a mini-first class since there are only 8 seats in that section.
Cathay once again changed their amenity kit to a more traditional form factor. The prior kits I got was the highly criticized wrap around string kit, then this was quietly changed to a kit shaped more like a purse and now it has been changed to a pouch-like kit. The content has remained the same.
The meals on board were good. I really liked the scallop appetizer and garlic bread but the main course was disappointing and tasted like anything you can easily get from a typical Chinese restaurant. The burger was excellent. The bun was so soft and crispy that I was surprised it came from a plane. Also it was served with a nice size bottle of ketchup. If only they also served fries. I never found breakfast on a plane to be good and this time it wasn’t very memorable either.
Drink wise, I really enjoyed the various Cathay cocktails, and they were all beautifully presented.
The seat continues to be one of the best business class seat in the sky. Private and spacious. I was able to sleep for a full 8 hours and arrived feeling pretty refreshed.
Overall it was a solid trip with Cathay with good drinks and food and an awesome lounge.

    Nice video. I still think a caption here and there, just like your earlier videos, would make it easier to understand.

    Hey why there is a 747 at 6:58?
    CPA’s 747 airliner has retired!

  • Frank Europe

    Cathays business class is one of the most spacious of all, but their staff is not as friendly as Eva Airs or Singapore Airlines. Thank you for the nice video !

  • Keith Gardner

    Again, a great video)

  • One World Flyer

    Great video! So many foods are offered from HKG to JFK! If there is no long time effect on traveling on a plane, I’d love to live in a plane haha

  • Vexceillion

    Cathay Pacific and almost all of the asian airliners are far, far and far superior than the airliners from the west, including americans. Cost cutting is what they know and passengers know what cost cutting short changed them.

    Mate, I think someone used your video without your permission: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZY9vg2Y-xI

    Awesome airline, awesome route but this segment has too many Jews for my liking. Not that have anything against Jews but the Jews you see on these flights are the religious type and they’re fucking annoying.

  • Shin Diggio

    Did an around-the-world trip recently with Qatar & Cathay. QR has better meals and superb service but CX has dine on demand and better seats on the 777s than QR. I don’t need better service as the seats are my #1 proirity.

    Couldn’t help noticing that Deutz is actually not a champagne but sparkling wine from New Zealand.

  • Airplane Flying

    What gate did this flight depart out of?

  • Roger Solid

    Burger on airplanes, cool:) never seen this before.)

  • Martyn Gomersall

    Pity you didn’t get the fries with that burger… I flew with Cathay P earlier this month (LHR-HKG-LHR) and that burger and fries was amazing…. I also like the Jurlique Lip Balm on Cathay P, it really works!!

  • Nicholas Cornish

    This company will just tell lies. All to easy to make a big profit when you tell the customer one thing and then just goback on it some month later. They cost me 5 London Hong Kong returns. I even when to the head office and all the did was laugh. All in all a useless airline

  • Brendan Berkhout’s Travel Videos

    Another awesome report you made here, looks like you had a nice flight! That mini Business cabin does look nice and cozy. How come you didn’t get an amenity kit? The food looks alright, shame not all of it tasted that well. That burger does look nice and juicy though!

    Thanks again

    I usedto be jal member. Now move to cathay. Soon my family are going to indo with business class. To indonesia.

  • Airbus 350

    That is a 773 TRY FLYING CX on A350 which the business class is EVEN BETTER FOR LONG HAUL flight not on a SHORT HAUL. flight crew seems rushed and does not listen to anything,.

  • Semsem Eini

    LOL you had the Burger mid flight? I was not hungry after the dinner and sleeping for 6 hours. Our pilot was also British.

  • fctsui57

    Great cheeseburger but on my flight last month from Los Angeles to Hong Kong, they ran out of dessert!!  Not even ice cream was available that was funny!!
