Flying another airline: problems redeeming Cathay Pacific lounge access

Last August 28, I was on my way back to Hong Kong after a weekend trip in the Philippines. Unfortunately, there were flight disruptions the previous day due to Typhoon Mawar. Due to the surge of passengers from the cancelled and delayed flights, I was offloaded. I ended up with a free hotel stay, meals and a roundtrip voucher to any Cebu Pacific international destination.

I chose Singapore over Manila since Singapore is twice as far as Manila from Hong Kong, and the tickets aren’t twice as expensive. Not only did I enjoy the trip, but I earned 9,552 miles from it in addition to the miles I’ll be getting from my credit card. Continue reading Singapore weekend with Cathay Pacific’s A350

Flying between Manila and Hong Kong : Cathay Pacific, Philippine Airlines or Cebu Pacific

I consider myself a commuter of the Hong Kong-Manila-Hong Kong route. I fly it at least once a month, up to weekly in some months. Flying these flights gave me a chance to compare the airlines flying those routes.

Comparing these options solely on the service is unfair, as Cathay Pacific is a 5-star airline, while both Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific are 3-star airlines. But don’t worry; this comparison will dig deeper than that. Keep in mind though that this review is focused on their Hong Kong-Manila and Manila-Hong Kong flights.
