Cathay Business HKG-EWR: Not First, But It’s a Solid Second


Cathay Business Hong Kong EWR is part of The Year of the Monkey Trip Report which covers the following places:

Cathay, Cathay, Cathay. I love you but I do not like your business class flights and I’ve complained about it.

I wanted to give long-haul back to the US a chance, but there would be no way that I would skip the opportunity of flying first when that option was available. Luckily, Cathay’s flight from Hong Kong to EWR does not have a first-class cabin. While I was envious of passengers flying first somewhere close by on a different plane, I took solace in knowing that there was no one on this plane that had it better than I.


Since it’s business class, there is no Krug.

Krug or not, I never tire of taking these iconic photos:


The food was better than my other Cathay business experiences.

I won’t complain about ice cream.
Or about burgers!


Since it’s business class, the seats did lie flat. I have no complaints about that.


Ballers is also available in business.


Business or first, Cathay still delivers.

And that delivery includes my favorite chapstick, Jurlique.


Cathay Business Hong Kong to EWR

Nobody wants to go to New Jersey (see Newark, New Jersey: The Discarded Mistress). If you do have to go, flying Cathay is not a bad way to get there.

  1. Cathy Business Class is not that great. the soft product sucks! small portions, and they run out of substantial snacks fast (because of the small portions).
