Just be aware that Cathay is cancelling CMB flights a fair bit at the moment due to the terrorist attacks (e.g. the Friday flight has gone from the schedules), so you run the risk of this moving both of your flights to a different date if it impacts your trip times. This has disrupted a few of my planned trips, though there have been free changes with fairly generous dates implemented as well. As such, if you need to be in NYC on a certain date be prepared to travel a day or two earlier to achieve your plan.
Thanks for the heads up, just got the cancellation e-mail. Might try and rework my whole trip now.
