Cathay PacificAs Cathay Pacific continues to add more flights, the airline said it has brought back First Class service initially on select flights to and from London Heathrow followed by Paris and Tokyo (Haneda) over the coming months. Since 5 and 6 December, customers can now travel First Class with Cathay Pacific on the airline’s prime daily London Heathrow flight, CX251/CX252 respectively. This coincides with the addition of flight frequencies to and from London Heathrow. First Class will then be returning to Cathay Pacific’s Paris flight CX261/CX260 from 18 January 2023, followed by its Tokyo (Haneda) flight CX548/CX549 from 1 February 2023.

General Manager Customer Experience and Design Vivian Lo said: “We are extremely excited to be bringing back our First class service after an extended absence as the world’s appetite for travel comes roaring back. We know our customers have been eagerly anticipating being able to fly First class with us again, and we are delighted to be offering it on routes that we know are incredibly popular with them. We are very proud of the elevated First class experience we provide, which has been thoughtfully curated to offer our customers a bespoke journey centred on enjoying inspired flavours, calming fragrances and refined textures whenever they travel. We very much look forward to welcoming our First class customers on board and delivering the very best of what Cathay Pacific has to offer.”

To mark the return of its First Class service, Cathay Pacific is introducing a limited edition Krug 2004 Vintage Champagne from the House of Krug as well as an edition of Blanc de Lynch-Bages 2018 and Château Lynch-Bages 2000. Cathay Pacific’s First Class service allows customers to dine at their preferred time choosing from a wide variety of fresh flavours and contemporary dishes that include not just hearty favourites, but more nutritious wellness options and authentic Hong Kong dishes.
