Cons: "Kosher meal served lukewarm"

Pros: "Great service from flight attendants."
Cons: "Food options"
Pros: "Karen was nice."
Cons: "They took my drink I just bought before boarding the plane. The landing from the pilot wasn't great... by far the worst landing from all of my travels. The food for Vegetarian Lacto-Ovo Meal (VLML) - (A Vegetarian Meal that may also contain eggs and dairy products) was gross and the guy flight attendant wouldn't give me ice cream because I had a special meal. All I wanted for food was no meat; I didn't expect it would have no ice cream and no real food. I should've, could've taken one of the options on the food list and push away the meat myself."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Seat is hard to adjust."
Pros: "Checkin was a breeze, the flight attendants were great, food was good, seats were comfortable, good selection of movies. What more can you ask for"

Again another flight to Chicago which dropped the passengers in around midnight. Had to pick them from 4 hour distance from Chicago which was planned early. overall journey was more than 36 hours. No information to the passengers until last minute. Some passengers does know English."

Cons: "Nothing I can think of... They had it all covered."

Pros: "Service was ok"
Cons: "I booked my reservation with kayak and pick out choice seats , when I check in was told by Cathay that they do not honor seat reservation from a 3rd party. I also paid for the exit seats so We have open space.. Very disappointed."
Pros: "The extra space was nice, but expected as I paid for it."
Cons: "My wife's and my seats were sticky and difficult to recline. my headphone socket had lose fitting and neither the airline supplied headphone nor my Bose QC headphone were able to work constantly. The service from the two hosts was poor with very little to no engagement or pleasantries. I compare this with Premium Economy class flights with other airlines I have flown and I will elect not to fly Cathy Pacific again. I also found the food and the service below average. No option for wine on this flight, just red or white."
Cons: "bring back Me Before You!"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "First and international flight - the seats are cramped, the meals are extremely 'blan' and the entertainment selection was not very good."
Pros: "Boarding was a bit of a free-for-all even though they called specific rows. Still, it went fast and everything else was fine. Seats were as comfortable as can be expected for economy. Food was pretty good, entertainment was great and the crew was polite and helpful."
Pros: "Shorter flight airplane much nicer"
Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "The sound did not work for my video, the food was not good, the seat was uncomfortable, and my stewardess was rude."
Cons: "The cabin was freezing! Plus the blanket was as thin as gauze."
Cons: "Terrible food."
Pros: "Crew Service and Leg space is great. Automatic check-in station is simple and easy to operate, speeds up the queue for checking-in and luggage drop."
Cons: "Seat has no recline option, only movable part is the base of seat, back support recline is not available, thus making it impossible to rest. Food was served cold, CX used to be much better at food handling, cold omelette and soggy bacon is definitely not appetizing even for a hungry morning flight. Entertainment is ok, nice options, but LCD screen is getting old and blurry, rather not strain my eyes to try watch anything on it."
