Cathay Pacific (CX) Flight 806 - Hong Kong (HKG) to Chicago O'Hare (ORD) Boeing 777-300ER, First Class, Seats 1D & 1K My flight in Cathay Pacific's notoriously glamorous first class cabin started in the same (decidedly unglamorous) way all of my flights out of Hong Kong's Chek Lap Kok Airport do - slurping a steaming hot bowl of dan dan mian and working my way through two baskets filled with doughy, savoury xiao long bao soup dumplings.

This area of the globe is filled with one of my favorite airline quirks – fifth freedom flights. With a multitude of unique airlines offering relatively cheap, short flights between ma
I’d like to start off by apologizing for the poor quality of pictures that you’ll see in this report. I’m still getting the hang of hotel reviews so I often forget to take photos of areas outside of the room.
