While they’re not enclosed suites, the seats in Cathay Pacific first class are incredibly comfortable.
The bedding is top notch and I find that I sleep better in Cathay Pacific first class than almost any other Airlines. Cathay Pacific’s first class layout on the 777 is especially spacious, as it’s just six seats in a 1-1-1 configuration.
When Flying Business or First Class, you have the opportunity to fill out for MarcoPolo Membership for “Free” (its 50 US dollars otherwise).
And the service is consistently top notch if you understand how it works, they leave you alone to maximize your privacy, and if you need something you push the call button unlike other First Class Flight attendants (where they come and check up on you every 10-15 min), And when you do push the call button, they’re at your seat within a matter of seconds.
The Cathay Pacific First Class food is incredibly consistent though not amazing, in my opinion.
The Flight timing are odd you depart around redeye hours, land at New York at 7 in the morning, essentially taking two back-to-back red-eyes – my flight experience, the service, the seat-bed and the food was so good that when we got to New York first thing in the morning, I was ready to hit the ground running and had a great first day.
The jet lag did not hit at all, I felt fine and was productive all day long, so that was totally worth it.
The trouble with flying such great first class services is that it makes anything in business or coach that much more less enjoyable.
