You need to get to the airport and catch a 13-hour ride on a shiny new plane to Hong Kong.” That’s how I’m counting down the hours approaching the am departure of Cathay Pacific flight 893 to Hong Kong.This new Airbus A350 takes off in the wee hours of Friday night/Saturday morning and arrives in Hong Kong at 8 am on Sunday.To celebrate the arrival of the A350-900 to US shores, Cathay invited a group of media to fly from San Francisco to Hong Kong and back, including a two-day stay at the Peninsula hotel in Kowloon.(Check out my pushy post about the Peninsula here.) Current fares on Cathay’s SFO-HKG nonstops for January trips are about 0 round trip in economy, ,000 in premium economy and ,900 in business class.No probs, I thought; this is one of those times I’ll take advantage of my CLEAR membership.Regrettably I discovered that CLEAR lanes at SFO’s international terminal close at 10 pm, which makes little sense because so many flights depart around midnight and early morning.First class fares (only available on B777 flights) are about ,000 roundtrip.
A day ahead of her sunglasses launch, she said: 'I love women. I think sunglasses are the final touch to a woman's outfit.'I wear sunglasses because like most mums, I am up all night with my children.I also had a hankering for a bowl of noodles made on-the-spot, and wanted to snap some photos of the lounge and the A350 as it arrived in the darkness.Check-in for the flight was quick and easy due to my early arrival, and the airport was remarkably busy at pm. Cathay Pacific is a recent inductee into the Pre Check club, but unfortunately I did not get it this time.So, if you have been looking for a black chatroom community on the web that is moderated with live webcams, great friends and free to use then Black Chat City is the perfect place for you.It's usually busiest in the evening time when everyone has more free time, but most members come and go throughout the day.
