This was the first time with Cathay and I had heard very good things about them. The A350-900 to HKG in BUS Class was very nice, food and service were just ok.......nothing special...not a patch on Qatar. Return flight had better service and better cabin crew who made themselves familiar with my surname and had Brisket of Beef in a special beef broth with noodles and Pak Choi which I must admit was superb. Not cheap at 3.5k return but it was the most direct and quickest time wise. Would I use Cathay again, probably not, I would use Qatar to DOH and the on to CAN and save a few quid.
