Even though it comes under the umbrella of CX, KA is a far cry from its mother airline in every facet one cares to comment. The airplane itself was docked at the satellite departure lounge at CLK airport, which requires passengers to take a short ride on one of the airport shuttle buses. The plane itself, an airbus, was small...

The boarding was disciplined and professional, the plane was a relatively new A320 and was clean, the staff on board did their job well and the aircraft arrived on time. Overall just as you hope and expect.

I was flying from Penang to HK on KA692. Flight departs at 0800, a bit early but it's also arriving in HK quite early - just before noon. So I still have the whole afternoon for my work. The queue is a bit jammed... probably because the check in hall is too narrow. Was a bit overcrowded! Crew is friendly...

I also see the difference in the passengers, there is more younger persons and easier to have a conversation then in...

We managed to catch up some of the delay before landing. All was...
