Default 12July2006 CX872 HKG-SFO in J

12 July 2006
Flight No: CX872
Registration No: B-HOZ
Gate: 67
Loading: 100% full
Booking Class: I
Seat: 81H

-I was arrived from CX461 at around 1300.The longest transit time in my life-5 hrs!!!
-The flight was delayed due to bad weather in MNL. B-HOZ hadn't arrived at HKG until 1700
-There were quite a lot of op-ups on this flight. My neighbour was an AA Emerald. A Singapore woman J class lounge had a seat change from 86H to 4K(bad luck me)
- I was served well by all 3 crews on upper deck( The best J class flight on CX I ever got),however food was again horrible. Very oily and bad presentation. No doubt that CX J is not the top 10 in the world in terms of food.
- SFO is definitely a nice airport,less crowded.

This was the plane I took from TPE. Being prepared for 884 to LAX



Plenty of people

Great pics. Thanks for sharing that. I really like the pics of the CX lounge. So nice.

I should tell you that you might want to remove the last two pics since it is against the rules of the "Federales" to take pictures in that area. You're not supposed to take pictures from the time you enter immigration all the way until you've handed the blue Customs form. If they catch you, they're supposed to confiscate and destroy your camera. Thought you should know.

Yeah most people don't know that rule. I usually see these tourists snapping pictures and then seeing these DHS officers come straight into their faces and yell "NO PICTURES ALLOWED!" Sometimes I've even seen them grab the camera and delete the everything on the card, regardless of the previous pictures on them. (I know this since they were standing next to me while I was waiting for my baggage.)

And sometimes I wonder why people think Americans are so unfriendly...

ADDED: Wait. I still see the pictures of the carousels. What pictures were removed?

Nice picture, but from my experience with CX last summer to Vietnam wasn’t what I expected from a 5 star airline. Crew members were awful and weren’t helpful, entertainment wasn’t that to rave about. CX is to me in my opinion a world away from Singapore Airlines.

Haha, I totally agree with you. I fly with CX becuase of my MPC status only.

Their J and Y are not really up to a 5 stars airline standard. Flying with SQ is my dream,however it is quite impossible for a frequent HKG-LHR traveller like myself.

Inconsistency of service does exist on most airlines,isn't it? Do you guys experience any SQ crews whom their services are below standard?

And sure, it happens to the best, even SQ. I've had some less-than-pleasant flights where the service standards were far below par. That's why writing to them and letting them know is the best corrective method.

Thanks for the trip report, ny911

Always wondering how was it like to travel on the upper deck of a B744.

The food looks very good and it made hungry
