Leave 12:00 PM, Arrive 1:55 PM
Upon check-in, we were provided with lounge passes and visited The Bridge. The Bridge is calming and relaxing, and I wish we had more time to explore the entire lounge.
We were also given Premium Lane certificates to use to go through immigration upon arrival in Bangkok, which certainly helped to save some time.
Upon boarding, we were pointed towards the business class cabin. This flight features Cathay Pacific’s old business class model which featured six across seating. The seats are not private, which is okay for such a short flight.
There is a nice little cubby hole to place your shoes and give some added leg room
There are two outlets to charge your electronic gadgets.
In the seat back, there was a packaged set of head phone.
The seat controls were basic but easy to understand and use.
There is a little storage compartment for your glasses, most phones, passport or similar items.
The remote is stored inside of the arm rest of the seat.
I chose a glass of water as a pre-departure beverage.
Lunch began with a starter of Hot smoked Creole salmon with French beans and Kipfler potatoes, which was simple but tasty.
I chose the Grilled Australian prime beef tenderloin with gravy, green pea mash, carrots, asparagus and capsicum for the entrée. The beef was okay, but nothing I would order in a restaurant. Although tenderloin is very tender, there is very little taste since it is one of the leaner cuts of beef.
I skipped on the dessert, as ice cream did not seem too appealing.
Service was friendly and efficient. For a short 3 hour flight, the lack of privacy of business class was not a major issue for us. For those traveling alone, the closeness of your seat mate might be an issue for some.
Upon deplaning, if using the Premium Lane, it is past the first immigration line that you come across. There is a sign that says “Premium Lane” as well.
