Cathay Pacific In Flight EntertainmentBack to Forum
Anonymous8 Dec 2009
I was wondering if anyone has recently travelled in Economy class on Cathay Pacific from Chennai (India) to Hong Kong or from Hong Kong to SFO.
I am due travelling next week and I checked out the inflight entertainment choices. The options are very limited with 5 or 6 average movies for a good 12 hour flight duration. Further, the entertainment is not AVOD like the ones offered by Thai, SQ or Malaysia in Economy Class. Any comments, do they have AVOD in flights but not updated on the website.8 Dec 2009
Hi, I recently flew MNL-HKG and ICH-HKG return and the movies will be the same. You’ll find they are mostly the same as on the long hauls only with the the shorter films and local/regional shows.8 Dec 2009
Being a long time user of Cathay I can assure you that on long haul it is definitely AVOD and more than you can handle. On short haul/regional the selection is less but still good. I guess it depends on your tastes. The guessing game is at what point a flight is deemed long haul hence AVOD as opposed to short haul. In CX’s magazine it does list the short haul and regional/long haul sectors so check that out next time. Just as an additonal comment the CEO of CX Tony Tyler must be bloody happy he doesn’t get the stick that WW gets!!10 Dec 2009
