Reply To: Cathay Pacific New Business Class Seat

Back to Forum


Two years ago, I flown before in the CX Business Class herring-bone layout seat from HKG to SFO. After a couple of hours, i felt so ‘boxed-in’ – just wanted to scream “let me out of here!” And this is on the upper deck of a 747 which has less passengers. When i saw the lower decks seats, i cannot imagine ever being there. Upon my return flight LAX-SFO, imagine my relief when i was told that the plane has chaged and had the older business class seats. I could breathe again. I have a stewardess friend in CX, and when i relay it to her, her reply was CX Management has conducted survey and many were satisfied with the new seats, although the stewardess do not fancy the new seats as it makes it awkward for them to serve the meal tray.
