The thought of a 16hr flight is daunting such a long time to be on a plane! It is not that bad when you are flying Cathay Pacific first class. There are only six seats in First class on this plane & on this flight, all of them were occupied but once you are in your seat you would never know. The seat does not have a door like Singapore Airlines or Emirates, however, it still feels very private. The seat itself if very roomy, heaps of storage and it’s long I can only just touch the foot rest. When converted into a bed it is super comfortable also perfect for sleep on this very long flight.
This flight left in the late afternoon HK time so food service was a dinner and breakfast. There are many different food options available on the menu along with an extensive wine list. You can have your meals at any time just order off the menu and it’s brought plated straight to your seat restaurant style no carts are used. The food itself was good but didn’t blow me away, maybe I was expecting too much?
Cathay Pacific first class is great but still after 16hrs happy to finally get to ( JFK ) New York.
