A week before my trip to Hong Kong, I was in total vacation mode. Granted I felt unprepared as I began packing the two days before leaving and I didn’t have much time to plan, so there would be a lot of improvising on this trip. Nonetheless, I was excited to just be away for three weeks.
I went to work the day I was leaving as my flight out was at midnight; that meant I would land in HK right around 5:00am HK local time, giving us a full day to do things, but lose a day in flight.
I flew with Cathay Pacific, which I fully conclude has the best airplane food hands down. They also give you Häagen-Dazs ice cream and cup noodles. I did hear that Air Canada flights to Asia hands out cup noodles, but I would never fly with Air Canada if I had a choice.
When I flew to Melbourne, it gave me a taste of how long haul are. This 15 hour flight is no different. I remember my butt getting terribly numb that I had to get up several times. On this flight, it was quite comfortable and I was shocked with how much leg space was available in the economy cabin.
Perhaps North American airlines have cramped leg room as they are into cramming as much people in the cabin? Regardless, I think it’s a crime to have such uncomfortable seating.
Back to sleep, and we’ll wake up to HK.
