1. Cathay Pacific Airways flight CX 889
New York (JFK) – Hong Kong (HKG) via Vancouver (YVR)

Cathay Pacific has 3 flights daily to New York. 2 nonstop in the morning and afternoon hours and 1 stop via Vancouver, Canada during the evening hours. A 4th flight is expected to start later this month due to high demand. I particularly chose this route with a stop because currently this is the only flight that departs during the evening hours. I feel more refreshed as I arrive in Hong Kong in the morning hours. That will change with the additional flight that will start later this month.

Complimentary bottled water which was a nice touch

Cocktail & Meal Service

Warm almonds and a glass of Baileys Irish cream
For those who are used to the CX service, you can tell that the nuts serving has slightly gotten smaller

Menu for today (2 main courses and light meal option consisting of noodle soup offered)

Starter: Caesar salad with marinated prawns with garlic bread

Main course: Grilled beef tenderloin with chanterelle mushroom demi glace, chateau potatoes, green bean with carrot roll

For steak lovers, a close up picture with a hint of red.

My favorite part of the in-flight entertainment system, the maps as we go along.

My pre-arrival drink. The usual orange juice and a mini box of pralines!

Landing at Vancouver:

At the parking bay at Vancouver with the underbelly camera. Another favorite feature of the In-flight entertainment system
