​The Pier Vs. The Wing: Battle of Cathay’s First Class Lounges 

Disclaimer: I reviewed The Wing when I was moving out of the nightmare that was Mongolia. Although I visited both lounges this past trip, this review will have mostly pictures of The Pier. Which is better,...

Cathay First YVR-HKG: The Next Episode

And there I was in Vancouver, Canada, former home to the infamous winger Todd Bertuzzi. The Canucks is what comes to mind when I think of British Columbia.  Unfortunately, today would not be the day...

Cathay First JFK-HKG: Part 1 to Vancouver 

​I'm reminded of wise words a stranger once told me, "Don't fly direct on Cathay Pacific from JFK, take the scenic route through Vancouver." And that's what I did. And here is why you...

Cathay Pacific HKG-JNB: 13 Hours of Lie-Flat

Can you tell me how to get, how to get to South Africa? There's the painful way, flying coach on Delta on one of the longest flights from ATL-JNB and then there's the right way HKG-JNB.

Cathay Pacific The Arrival Lounge Hong Kong

After a smooth business class flight aboard Cathay from NRT, I had three hours in Hong Kong before my first lie-flat experience. Cathay has more lounge varieties than Chevy trucks. As a transit passenger, I was given access to The Arrival Lounge, a quiet sanctuary in the middle of the bustling HKG airport.

Pho @Victoria Peak, Hong Kong

TPOL's Best Places to Get Pho in the world already includes Hong Kong. That doesn't mean TPOL's above reviewing another pho spot in the same locale. Today's review takes us up  for pho at Victoria...

Cathay Pacific First Class HKG-ORD

67,500 AA miles to fly first-class from Hong Kong to Chicago is a sweet deal. Finding out that I received a 6,750 rebate for having the Citi AA MasterCard made it even better. Add in 15 hours of first class luxury and I was in for a real treat...
