I was flying from Kota Kinabalu to Hong Kong. It was a pleasant experience flying on the second day of Chinese New Year. Travelling was made easier with a confirmed seat and boarding pass on a CX390 plane. Similarly, a hotel was also arranged for me. Upon boarding the flight, I was assisted by the cabin crew to my seat. An apology was also made prior to departure informing all passengers of the reason for the delay. I am impressed with the professionalism of the flight attendants. The in-flight meal was promptly served after we were airborne. I have been flying Hong Kong Dragon Airlines (Cathay Dragon) since 2014 and I always recommend them to everyone.
My first flight with Hong Kong Dragon Airlines (Cathay Dragon) was from Hong Kong to Guangzhou. They provide an excellent service. When onboard, the cabin crew delivered a complimentary bottle of water and delicious cookies.
