Great, even though their flight was overbooked, they upgraded us to the next available flight into business class and even made a cash payment as well as providing the dragonair lounge to us. Good service. Flight attendants are very nice.

Yes, it was not a very long flight from China to Hong Kong, but it caught me off guard when I go to a flight that doesn't have a built-in entertainment system! I did download the KA studio app as they suggested, but it didn't work on my iphone. So it was a boring 3 hours flight looking out the...

Flew from Hong Kong to Kathmandu, Nepal 3 1/2 weeks ago and then returned yesterday. I was expecting Dragonair to be an inferior service to Cathay Pacific, their sister airline, however, I was pleasantly surprised. The aircraft was far newer, the seat pitch more generous and the staff were caring and attentive. I would definitely fly Dragonair again.

Served simple breakfast. Chicken breast with mashed potato. Chicken was unbelievably hard to chew on, Nothing extraordinary. Seats were too hard for comfort throughout the 3.5 hours flight. However, flight attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight was well handled with minimal disturbance even during turbulence.

WOW! I have not had a better flight, I flew both ways fro HK to Shanghai and back, and was very pleasantly surprised.

Dragonair used to have an advantage over other regional services but the others have improved and, if anything, Dragonair has got worse. You can pay US$1200 for a 2 hour return flight to Shanghai and then be herded onto a bus (crammed in - no joke) to and back from the plane in HK. The CX/Dragon lounge at Shanghai is...

I think Dragonair was a sister company to Cathay Pacific,expecting a similar standard of service; but I think it is better than cathay Pacific. JFK to Hong Kong was with Cathay and then Dragonair with from Hong Kong to Yangon. I kind of like Dragon air. On our way back, our plane hit the birds and have to return to...
