POP: Cathay Pacific Business Class Boston to Hong Kong “Mini Cabin”
Let’s be honest. Sometimes you don’t want to read a whole review. So we’ve created a new series called POP: Pictures Only Post. Posts in this series will feature the product, minimal description, and focus on 5-10 Pics. A more detailed review will come in the following week or two, but here’s a quick look at Cathay Pacific Business Class Boston to Hong Kong “Mini Cabin”.
My parents were able to lock down 2 First Class tickets using Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to snag any last minute seats in First so I ended up sitting in the business class mini cabin. This worked out really well. My last experience on Cathay wasn’t akin to their reputation so I was lucky to review it again for only 50k Alaska Air miles. It blew me away. My last experience was oceans away from this. The service was impeccable and they brought me back and forth to visit my folks in First…even pouring me some Krug 😉
The Mini Cabin is just 2 rows ( 13,14) set between the First and Main Business Class cabin. It’s where you want to be. I was in seat 12D
When our tickets were first booked my Dad and I were in business together…hence the middle seat selection. 10 days prior to take-off a seat opened up in First and I moved my Dad up to it. Unfortunately there weren’t any window seats avail at this point. However, the reverse herringbone design provides ample privacy.
Improved amenity kit.
Last time I flew Cathay Business they had a much smaller amenity kit that had a wrap around leather cord. This one is quite handsome and will be much easier to reuse.
Definitely comfortable. The comforter has been improved and is heavier than it used to be which is great as the cabin was kept quite cool during flight.
The headphones are sub-par compared to American. First class passengers get Bose…business do not.
