CX scores ahead of SQ 6 to 8!

I think everyone has missed the really smart move on CX's part - do a modest refurb but keep the very expensive seat mechanicals and only 6 of them in the 777. SQ had a chance to even the game...

Beyond wildest expectations

For those that have not stayed at the Gritti before you will be in for an incredible experience no matter which room you end up in. Do have a look at the May European issue of Architectural Digest...

Beware Mainland China call centre

Besides their shockingly low standard of English fluency -- compared with competitors in the travel industry such as Lufthansa's China call centre -- the agents will lie to you and confirm things...

Was told at HKG F checkin that the bulkhead in PE is now being held (similar to the front J mini-cabin on 77Ws) for DMs on request at airport checkin only -- not accessible through OLCI where the...

That explains some FA chit chat last week

Was flying a mix of F and J last week SIN-FRA on the 77W and 380. Great crews both ways. And I found the meals in F and J were just fine .. head and shoulders ahead of CX (my home carrier).

Same in TPE on 1 Jul

Counter checkin at TPE on morning of 1 Jul was chaos. Caused our overbooked 747 to be delayed 30 min and pilot was quite clear about where the blame lay: " sorry folks but the IT system for check-in...

Update: back online with personal service

Kudos to CX MPC staff; they just called me to apologise and let me know that the OLCI has "been put back online by the airport".

Conspiracists can still mull this one; but looks more like usual...

29Jun midday HK time and MMB and OLCI offline

More CX IT crashes or so I thought. Just off the phone with very sympathetic MPC agent (I'm DM) but nothing they can do as "HK airport has taken over all CI functions and thus OLCI is disabled". ...

OZ head and shoulders above TG in F

OZ's cabin crew in F are among the very best out there. But do make an effort to accommodate their usually very poor English -- who cares though as service with their genuine heart and smiles is...

IFE Monitors

Adding my two cents worth ... no one has mentioned here (but elsewhere it is mentioned) is the negative of not being able to adjust the angle of the IFE monitor. even with the seat in full upright...

Long haul to reach DM

Bear in mind that it will take you 210,000 base miles to reach DM in one year. CX has an awful feature of resetting your qualifying miles when attaining each level. Silver then back to 0, gold then...

Oenophiles delight in F

Just noticed this announcement on the HK CX homepage. Doesn't mention how these 6 selections will be offered (ie. in rotation, all available at once (!) etc).

On many regional "short" routes there are a number of premium cabin pax who have connected in from longhaul product. So the upgrade to a better standard of cabin product is not entirely for short...

Don't request an upgrade

Whatever you do -- do NOT request an upgrade!! almost guaranteed not to be upgraded if you do so--ground staff can mark your file negatively. CX systems are pretty sophisticated and will upgrade...

TPE is my current hot spot for "I" fare turnarounds from HKG

Used to go with MNL but for the past two years the I fares out of TPE have been too hard to resist (even factoring in the lowest econ fare to do the positioning sectors from HKG).

Yes very easy.

CX will usually have staff around for the few passengers who are transitting and "turning-around". They walk you to the centre of the terminal where there is an escalator up to the departures level...
