The locals (incl moi) here are short - Asian airlines can be more aggressive on the regional legroom.

Surprised with your experience. I'll take your body building into account.

Maybe it's your seat neighbours? No chunky lady neighbours on full flights (at time of writing, I'm sitting next to a rather broadly built Peruvian gentleman on a LA A320 and I'm pulling my shoulders away. Fortunately only a 65 min flight.)

QR right? I think you'll struggle getting refills during the meal on CX. And pretty sure after dinner cognac is no longer part of CX Y meal service even for LH.
