Cathay Dragon (formerly Dragonair) used to have reputation of being Cathay Pacific's poor relation. On the basis of this flight, that's no longer the case. Checkin was easy. Business Class was only half full and the service was excellent. We were registered for vegetarian meals but as chicken and fish were option on the normal menu, asked if we could...

Everything is on average. The return flight from Hanoi to HK was very full, we could not get adjacent seats even when I tried to check-in online the day before.

Great flying experience with Dragon Air as always, the plane is only half full for this route and I knew Dragon also maintain to use certain size of the plane, such as A320, rather than the less than 100 passengers one. The meals are also great, especially have ice-cream as the dinner desert. Wish have the TV screens rather than...

Great flight down to Da Nang. Packed plane but good service and for a short haul flight, I was impressed with the food selection - yes, you get a choice, not some soggy roll like you get on some other Asian airlines.

We fly Cathay for its good connection from PVG to BLR. However, the new check-in platform does not entertain food selection, which is the only negative that I could think of. The airline has prompt customer services and communication.

First time with this local arm of the larger Cathay Pacific group and was pleasantly surprised. The aircraft was in a very new condition, clean, tidy and nicely bright cabin. Boarding was easy but a little bit confusing as the seat numbering system for some strange reason did not begin with the first row being row 1. So being a...
