Overall is average in term of services and F&B. Stewardess would have been more passionate to guests. Food is not acceptable except the ice cream.

Cathay Dragon ground staff are so rude at Kolkata airport, unnecessarily over professional, shows attitude, holds passengers for further inquiry and ask them to wait and later forget the passengers and forget what they have been doing! when ask them waiting long, almost close to boarding time, --- oh sorry, I forgot! is this the way to handle passengers? anyways,...

Perfect take off and landing. The flight landed earlier than expected~ Nice flight attendants. However, there were no in flight entertainment as it was an A320 flight. Will take this airline again though.

Took a night flight from Hong Kong to Kaoshiung, Taiwan. The pilot did a perfect take off and landing. The service was great. The only thing was that there were not enough time for us to buy duty free products in flight as the flight attendant said on the speaker that there will be duty free service after the meal....

It's a short flight one does not expect much but amazingly they manage to serve you a meal efficiently. HK Airlines only gives you a stuffed roll that you don't want to eat. Well done Cathay Dragon on this route. Excellent Keep it up.

First time on Cathay Dragon - it left on time and very good service. Seats were the old business class design (did not fully recline) with quite firm seating but there was plenty of room. No complaints for a short flight.

Spacious seat and great choice of in-flight entertainment. Food quality is of above average standard but the portion can be slightly more for big eater. Seat is comfortable and you have all the control within your seat.

Founded as the daughter of Cathay Pacific you can expect nearly the same very good service and airplanes. I'm very satisfied with both of the Cathay family. For me one of the best airlines in the world.
