I doubt the accuracy of these results - Malaysian Airlines finds a spot on this list.

Socialite: "My goodness, Mr. Churchill... Well, I suppose... we would have to discuss terms, of course... "
Churchill: "Would you sleep with me for five pounds?"
Socialite: "Mr. Churchill, what kind of woman do you think I am?!"
Churchill: "Madam, we've already established that. Now we are haggling about the price”

what specifically has this airline done that you would say this?

 

seriously, you think either of their disasters was due to poor management?

I am not referring to mh17 here. Way Mh370 was handled leaves a lot to be desired. Their crisis management and handling of the situation was way short of the mark.

ya, after that plane disappeared the management behaved like total idiots...

 

but the rating of the airlines has nothing to do with  that.

 

and neither crash, assuming the first one WAS a crash, was their fault.

Sorry, I disagree.

 

The first was a crash as admitted by the airline. It may or may not be airlines fault, we won't know it until the whereabouts of that plane are found.

 

Safety maybe isn't a parameter for these ratings so I doubt the skytrax rating for this airline.

I've flown CX in 1st and Biz > 20 X transpac and while excellent they aren't the best. IME, SIng & Ana are better. Doctor J you're mission is to destroy as much caviar & Krug as humanly possible. At BKK I always use the Qantas lounge 50m down across from CX. The food is WAY better & they've got showers. The CX lounge surprisingly sucks.

Wow well the bonus is that it is free with mileage I get from using the credit card for work. Will try for ANA next time. Interesting info Wackyjacky.

Love Cathay.  Convenient, friendly, good planes, charger at seats even in economy, extremely easy to make schedule changes with no fees, best pricing available for multiple city trips including trips where you arrive in one city, and depart from another city to go home, US$50 for Marco Polo which is great value if you travel with them a couple times a year

Interesting assessment, Wacky.

 

I LOVE Cathay, but had a pretty mediocre business class experience the only time that I have flown ANA -- was stuck in those 3/4 recline seats that just aren't that comfortable.  Also, not "pod seating;" it was an actual row of seats.  Luckily, nobody on my row, so nobody had to crawl over me to get to the bathroom.

 

I am still dying to try Singapore, but their flights just haven't been that convenient (or available) for me.

 

I am pretty surprised Thai didn't score better on lounges, but I guess it evaluates more than their first class lounge at BKK, which is legendary.

 

Dr. J - a few suggestions (with photos) that I have picked up from some of my Cathay first flights:

 

 - if they have crab cakes as a snack on your Cathay flight, I HIGHLY recommend them!  Cooked to order, so they take a little while, but they were EXCELLENT!

- another great snack (IMHO) is the egg tarts.  I think these show up more often on flights departing Hong Kong, as opposed to arriving there.  Really tasty!

 - when you are ready to sleep, ask the flight attendant to make up your bed for you.  On my last flight home, it was the most sleep I think I have ever gotten on a plane (although I was pretty damn exhausted, so that may have helped!)

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
