Cathay Pacific A340 Taipei to Hong Kong Pics & Full Flight Video

Taiwan is a friendly country. So this is how i live, in dormitories. $200 a month salary isn't much so i appreciate your youtube likes and comments very much
I was lucky to get upgraded from a 9 bed dorm to an 8 bed, basically there was a mattress missing but they did say they upgraded me

1st night i woke up to everyone's bad breath because the Air con offcourse doesn't bring in fresh air, i think some models do. And some people don't think about mixing some hot air from outside via the window. It can't hurt to add a bit of oxygen to the mix.
A bit like how some people just keep windows shut through winter but never allow a little bit of air through and that's why we get colds i think.
That's the only drawback to living like this.
I usually mix it up with some air bnb private room in a house like in Japan i had the owners room and that was £10 a night.

I will be going on the Cathay A350 flight next week so please subscribe to my youtube.
(please watch the ads if you want )
Breakfast at the hostel is good and a nice place to relax




someone didn't like the traffic camera

Taiwan National Library











In Taipei airport they hae a 30CM rule on tripods which other airports like helsinki, hong kong, dublin, manchester don't have so i had to go out of security and package my tripod in a box for £3. the box was like 300% bigger than the tripod but i guess cathay let me check in 2 items then for free? do they normally charge economy passengers if it becomes 2 pieces?







Seating was comfy, the food was nice, i thought they'd come round with a soft drinks service but they give you a lemon tea.

OK, never saw a 1:55 hr video of a flight and to be honest I didn“t watch it completely. The upgrade was really generous

HAHA the upgrade was indeed. Well new news as i am now about to go on my next Hong Kong/Asia Trip, i'll be bringing real live streaming at HK airport outside with ATC on my channel www.youtube.com/directorphilip2
Plus many other locations.
Additional camera such as the next gen 4K 360 camera recordings good for VR watching

For regional destinations, CX has a 2 piece and overall weight limit.

Wasn't handled strictly during my experience. Also doesn't apply if you fly also on a long haul F-flight.
