So this started as looking for places to visit during the long holiday break. We are off January 25 to February 19 for the Chinese New Year Holiday break.
Malaysia is the destination. Researching flights. Okay great this is doable and in my budget.
Playing around with prices and BAM the business class is cheaper than the economy ticket. Sure let’s do this.
Elise forgets we are traveling business class so it becomes a nice surprise that she tries to guess what the surprise is.
We get to the airport and I head for the business checkin line.
Pure excitement radiates from my child. Get through customs and BAM there is nice shorter line for those who are traveling business class. Why thank you. Just wish it came with some perks like not taking everything out and off. But whatever I’ll take the short line.
Then we get to sit in the lounge for an hour while we wait to board.
She eats and I find a nice welcome in the bathroom
I haven’t seen a bidet since Kuwait and when I tell you I pushed every button on that remote. I left feeling fresh and clean.
Come downstairs to our gate.
Firsts ones to board the plane. Amazing.
Get on the plane
They offer to hang up my sweatshirt in the closet. Nah lady it’s okay. It’s a sweatshirt. I’m good. I stretch out my legs praise the lord. There is room for both of us on the armrest. The seats are two per row.
Comes around with complimentary drinks. So friendly and smiling and happy.
I get offered a blanket and she takes it fresh out the pack.
Wonderful noise cancelling earphones.
It’s gonna be hard going back to economy.
The menu is passed out. Let me also explain this was a short flight. 2 hours to Hong Kong then 4 hours to Malaysia. I got a menu
Pulls out the tray and she lays the linen down
Elise’s meal. Then this happens
A cart comes by and she points out your options.
I started to eat before taking a picture.
This kind of service and food I could get used to. Elise had the option to eat the child meal or one of the regular meals. The bread was warm. The drinks were plenty.
If you ever have the opportunity to fly anything but economy I say splurge.
My next splurge will be a suite or first class. Business was great and I will fly it again if I catch a deal.
Cathay Pacific is now my go to airline in Asia and they are apart of the One World Alliance which is partners with Qatar. So I didn’t have to start over with miles.
