A good flight, comfortable and pleasant but still a little disappointing.

Review of matthieu about the flight Cathay Pacific CX278 between Paris Charles De Gaulle and Hong Kong on 09/03/2015 in Economy

Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

This flight was between CDG Paris and Hong Kong on Cathay Pacific. Boarding was efficient and takeoff was on time. The plane was very clean and the crew was cheerful and competent.

The Economy class seat was sturdy, with good legroom and a touchscreen that had a lot of recent movies in French, which meant there was enough content for the flight.

The temperature was pleasant, I wasn't cold at all during the flight and I didn't even need to use the blanket. The pilot's announcements were good and the instructions from the crew were easy to hear.

There was a choice of three meals in Economy and the food was good, a positive point although the portions were a little small. The landing in Hong Kong was very smooth and disembarkation was really rapid— high art.

But nothing is perfect: there was no complimentary small kit with earplugs, toothbrush, socks or sleep masks. For a company rated 5 Skytrax stars, this is a drawback for me.

In conclusion, I recommend this airline since is remains an excellent and provides very good rates for students like me.
