POP: Cathay Pacific First Class Boston to Hong Kong
Let’s be honest. Sometimes you don’t want to read a whole review. So we’ve created a new series called POP post: 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 my parents experience onboard Cathay Pacific First Class Boston to Hong Kong. Miles and I slummed it in business class 😉
All of these tickets were booked with Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan. If you aren’t participating in their loyalty program…WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! 😉 My parents used 70k miles to fly from Boston to Hong Kong and onward to Beijing. Mine was 50k. Our taxes and fees were less than $50.
Dad took 1A while mom had 2D. ICMYI – this trip is a complete surprise for my mom’s bday.
Neither of them had every tried Krug or Caviar. They both LOVED it.
My Favorite had to be the surprise birthday cake. You can order one ahead of time. My mom’s reaction was the best!
She said it was one of the best cakes she had ever had. They crew was so nice that they brought me up ahead of time so I could partake in the celebration. So incredible!
Pajamas, Amenity Kit
My mom loves them. She’s been wearing them ever since the flight.
Needless to say they loved it. My mom raved that it was the best flight she’d ever taken. There more First Class indulgence to come on this trip so it’ll be interesting to she what she thinks by the end.
