Cathay Pacific A350 Full Flight
 
I am flying the A350 in the next two days, i'll be doing a live stream too on my channel and i'll do some live pictures.

I noticed the other day that their manila flight was really delayed and the Hong Kong Taipei flight was changed to a 777, that is the first time i think that it's ever happened that they didn't do the A350.
Funny because that's the day i just climbed the mountain yesterday to film it departing but luckily this time i didn't get sun burnt and took a coat with me and sun cream because they sunbrella did nothing last time.
Here's one of those videos from yesterday

And also they changed my Taipei-Hong Kong from a 77W to an A340.

It was looking sketchy on whether i would be going on the a350
just this minute its updated on FR24 and its coming home after a technical 2 days ago.
The check-in girl looked to see if it was the A350 and it was showing but i didnt know if it was live or just a schedule.

It happened the plane after a technical and staying in manila for 2 days, headed back around 12pm to do our flight to Taipei today. I was so relieved, when you fly from europe to take the A350's and especially since China airlines also changed dates too which i'm booked on, you start getting a bit worried about how much money you spent.
So there's a pic for now.
I've arrived at the hostel and i'll have to upload when i get to Singapore after my next flights on china airlines and united which will be very soon like the next 2 days.
The upload speed is a bit slow to get my full flight video up. You'll see live stream from today now on youtube.
my battery is running out and the plug is different so i need to buy an adapter one day.

Just curious, do you know what kind of dog this is? I have only ever seen these in Hong Kong. It does not look quite like a typical pug (like the ones in the photo following this one) but is obviously in the same family. Is there an indigenous pug subtype or relative that is bred in the area?

Oh those steps were the steps to the owners house/studio and then the lift behind me for the hostel :D

Not a dog expert myself, but I believe it is a Pug.

Just to let you know that the CX A350 does indeed have both a tail and nose gear camera. I assume you didn't fiddle around with the IFE enough.

I asked the cabin crew 6 times and they said it didnt have it. I said the finnair had it, they said cathay didnt choose to have it on the a350.
I tried
