Cathay away! Click the wrong website and be prepared to pay double
First Class Update to Asia: Once the lockdown began, a lot of airlines removed their First Class service from many routes. On December 12, Cathay Pacific announced that their First Class cabin was coming back to London, Paris, and Tokyo to/from Hong Kong.
When we saw this press release, we got excited because that meant it was only a matter of time before First Class would come back to the U.S. Well, as we anticipated in FCF’s Annual 2023 Crystal Ball report, the wait is over. Cathay Pacific’s Los Angeles-Hong Kong First Class service has returned and with award seat availability for up to two travelers. We also expect First Class to return to New York soon and we’ll be closely monitoring that.
