Airline Review – With Cathay Pacific from Bali via Hongkong to Frankfurt

Airline Review – With Cathay Pacific from Bali via Hongkong to Frankfurt

I just had the most incredible flight ever 😀 We saw rainbows, funnel clouds, the most stunning sunset and much more. Of course flying with a good airline also made a difference. I was searching for a great airline that flies from Germany to Bali…


Because Cathay Pacific is supposed to be the best airline of Asia I really wanted to try it out. Today I wanna introduce and rate my flight with Cathay Pacific from Bali via Hongkong to Frankfurt to you guys.


It took around five hours to fly from Denpasar, Bali to Hongkong. From there we flew another 12 hours to Frankfurt. Overall it was a really long flight. Hence, it was very important to me to fly this long distance with a good airline.


Cathay Pacific offers on some flights up to four different classes: Economy Class, Premium Economy Class, Business Class and First Class. Because I’m quite a cheap person I decided to go for the Economy Class although I’m also a big fan of the Premium Economy Class. I might test it another time 😉


Even though the flight was almost fully booked both ways and I “only” had one seat by myself I though the seat of the Boeing 777 of Cathay Pacific was quite comfortable. You can lean back the seat very well which is really great for sleeping.

Also the Entertainment System on board was wonderful! There is a huge selection of movies and you can choose upon different categories (Western Cinema, Asian Cinema, Western Classics etc.) which makes the decision process much easier 😀 On my way to Bali I went for the movie „How to be Single“ (a really nice and fitting film…haha). On the way back I watched “The Age of Adelaine”. I didn’t like this movie so much, but that was rather due to my poor decision making and not due to the airline 😛


What is also great of the entertainment system of  Cathay Pacific that the screens can be leaned forward. Hence, you have a good view while working at the same time. On our way to Bali we also had an USB port, on our way back it was even a real plug. Hence, I could work very well on board which is always very important to me 😀


What I also recognized positively is that in the restroom there was some hand and face cream available. When I asked for a tooth brush I was also handed it immediately. The Service of the Cathay Pacific employees, especially of the flight attendants, was really excellent!


Of course I also filmed an Onboard Food Diary for you guys again. This time I chose the special meal “Low Calorie Meal” which you can book online in advance using your booking code. At Cathay Pacific it is completely free and you can choose among different menus such as gluten-free or vegetarian. Here you can see what I got:

Meal 1: Lunch


We were served fish with vegetables and potatoes and fruit salad as dessert. Everything tasted great!


Of course the obligatory tomatoe juice could not be missed 😀 How adorable are these little heart sticks please 😀

Flight from Hongkong to Frankfurt

Meal 1: Dinner


For dinner on our second leg we had chicken with potatoes and vegetables, a green salad, a whole grain roll and vanilla pudding as dessert. I don’t remember much of this meal as I fell asleep immediately on the second flight 😛

All passengers without special meal could choose among these great meals 🙂

Shortly before arrival in Frankfurt we were served a healthy breakfast including some steak, steamed vegetables, mashed potatoes, a fruit salad and a whole grain bread. After this I was totally full and arrived fully satisfied in Frankfurt 😀

In Hongkong I was able to test the Premium Lounge of Cathay Pacific. There was some great food there, you can work really well in the lounge and all along with this stunning view 😀


I was really satisfied with our three flights of Cathay Pacific. Hence, my Overall Rating looks like this:

5 is the highest rating, 1 the lowest

Service                 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Airplane               ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Food                     ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Overall-Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.8 = 4,8 Stars

Due to the good food on board, the great entertainment system and the excellend service I can fully recommend the Economy Class of Cathay Pacific and would definitely fly with this airline again 🙂
