After travelling via Cathay Pacific to Hong Kong from Perth we made a quick link to Shanghai via Cathay Dragon. A Cathay personal escorted us to the departure terminal in Hong Kong as we had little time once landing. The Cathay Dragon flight was comfortable and we were provided with a light snack. Our many thanks to Cathay Pacific and...

The flight from Hong Kong to Guangzhou is only about forty minutes but the experience was good, the plane clean and tidy, the stewardesses very pleasant and overall a nice flight. The friendliness and the attention paid by the crew has to be recommended, on my previous Cathay Pacific flight into Hong Kong the standards was not quite as high!

Since there 4 of us this was not expensive. Comfy seats, adequate leg room, staff always attentive. Food only ok but since it was s short flight this did...

Cabin was very clean, flight was smooth and the landing was superb, did not felt when the plane landed at Hong Kong airport. However the leg space between the seats for flight between Kolkata and Hongkong was too cramped. Hong Kong Shanghai and return was good with good Indian food served.

Flew the Dragon Hong Kong to Chengdu and returned to Hong Kong from Chongqing and were surprised both flights. Good leg room and great service both ways. Both the two and a half hour flights were on time and a full meal was offered together with beverages. The meals were slanted to Chinese style food and not really to our...

Super packed flight with tight seats and squeezed legroom space does make the flight pretty uncomfortable. The ground staff in Kathmandu were excellent. Quick check in with a smile. But it all changed once you entrered the aircraft with squeezed in space. But then remember we flew economy and that's what we get :)
