Eventually, it was time to head across the terminal to my boarding gate, for KA729 HKG-KUL, a 4.10pm departure.

The weather was still variable, with dark clouds and occasional rain, but at least flights were still taking off...



I trekked across the long spine of Terminal 1 to get to Gate 49 at the far end...



At the gate, Cathay Dragon A330-300 rego B-HLJ, a 26 year old aircraft first flown in 1992, and still in the old Dragonair livery...



This was a full flight, and boarding lines stretched far into the concourse...



Although this was a fairly old aircraft, the interiors had been refurbished, and had a fairly modern cabin product...

I glanced into the business class cabin, with Cathay's much maligned regional J seat, in 2-2-2 layout. These were not the most popular J seats in the fleet, with fairly limited recline and legroom by today's J standards. Not that this was a big concern for me, as I was in Y...



Thankfully the 2-4-2 y cabin was equipped with new (But not the very latest) seats, which were very comfortable.



These seats were very similar to the Y seats on the A330 that flew me on my earlier BKK-HKG sector.



These were well padded and comfortable seats, with good recline and legroom...



Widescreen IFE with USB port...



...and A/C power...
