CX Business Class Ticket
CX811: BOS-HKG (Boston to Hong Kong)
18 July 2019
Boeing 777-300ER (Four Class Configuration)
Seat 11A

Departure: 1:50AM
Arrival: 5:10AM+1

This flight was fairly routine, without any major drama. I went to the airport using MBTA commuter rail and Silver Line, which took around 90 minutes. But the cost was only around $15, versus $60+ for Uber/Lyft.

My only complaint with this flight was the downgrade in catering in recent months. Pretty small portions and less selection than they used to have on this route. Pro tip: ask for everything you want for the meal when you order. You won't be able to get hold of a FA during the meal service. That said, the meal service was very quick on this flight. It was complete within 90 minutes of takeoff, which is quite a lot faster than in the past.

I slept a solid 10-11 hours on this flight, so I arrived in HKG feeling relatively alert. We arrived in HKG on time and I went to the Bridge Lounge for a quick shower before my next flight.
