Cathay Pacific Australia Economy & Business Class Sale From £699/£2989

by Continental Club on May 4, 2013  |  Leave a comment • Tagged as: , , ,

Cathay Pacific LogoHong Kong airline Cathay Pacific has released some promotional fares which see Economy returns to Sydney on offer from an advertised £699 return, and seats in the carrier’s highly-regarded Business Class cabin from £2989 return.

Cathay Pacific Business Class Sale

As always, we’ve checked to determine levels of availability and actual fares, and in some instances prices are actually slightly lower than those advertised – down to £693 from London Heathrow on many dates in Economy.

Connections are through Hong Kong’s Chek Lap Kok Airport, which is considered to be one of the world’s best. Indeed, Cathay’s ‘New Business Class’ seat (pictured above) is regularly reviewed to be similarly superlative, with its conversion to a fully-flat, horizontal bed and aisle access for every passenger.

Economy Class offers book into the ‘O’ fare class, and Business Class fares use ‘I’ class. In Business, members of the Cathay Pacific Marco Polo Club will earn 125% of miles flown and 1.25 Club sectors per flight, and 125% Asia Miles, but the promotional fares in Economy are non-earning. British Airways Executive Club members can choose to earn Avios on Cathay Pacific, with Business Class fares once again attracting 125% of the flown miles in Avios. In Economy, unlike with Cathay’s own programme, Executive Club members will at least earn 25% of the flown miles. Members of other oneworld alliance and partner airline programmes should check their own scheme’s policies for ‘O’ and ‘I’ class earnings rates.

The Economy Class sale runs until 9th May, for outbound travel between 8th May and 14th June 2013. Business Class fares are available for sale until 21st May, for outbound travel until 30th September 2013.

For more details and to book, visit the Special Offers pages at cathaypacific.com. To find the best Economy fares, oddly, it’s actually more efficient to use the booking module on the Cathay homepage, which provides a date-matrix of prices when used to search. Ensure that the ‘Flexible with travel dates’ button is selected.

Upright to Auckland – Cathay Pacific Economy

by Continental Club on March 5, 2011  |  One comment

Yes, Economy.

Regular readers may already have suffered a slight cardiac flutter with the news that such a class of travel exists, if not a full-blown arrest at the revelation that continentalclub has sampled such a thing. Nevertheless and in the name of research, your intrepid reporter has done just that and lives to tell this tale.

Granted, a slightly shorter sample would have been sufficient, but we were in Hong Kong and we needed to get to Auckland, so eleven-and-a-bit hours it would have to be.
