Cockroach falling on head - what would you do ?

Was fall asleep and waken up by a
.

Just curious what will all you do if this happened to you !?

I know it is definitely not cabin crew's fault.
However, I feel a bit frustrated that don't know who to blame for.
I got a seat change, and that's all.

Maybe the cost-down of Cathay Pacific is starting reflect on the Premium Economy lol ...

There's also cockroach crawling on the overhead bins in one of my NH flights, the crew tried to catch/kill it, but I'm not sure if the crew was able to catch it.

Isn't the FT way to handle incidents like this to twitter it (to someone)?

Got the nearest napkin and killed it. Been there, done that HKG-BKK (or was it BKK-HKG). Can't remember in 2003. Mine was bigger. Said nothing.
And, oh yeah, I didn't record it to post it on-line.....but I agree, CX should resume the deep cleaning service as it was a few months ago, not a reason for cost cutting.

I would recognise that Cathay fly largely in the tropics where there are billions of insects and not allow myself to get too indignant about the intrusion of nature into urban/flying life. Cathay are much cleaner than most airlines, in my experience (just fly BA to compare).
