Review: Hong Kong Airlines Business Class A350 Hong Kong To Los Angeles

Hong Kong Airlines just recently started flying to the US using their new A350s. As of now the airline flies to Los Angeles and San Francisco, and they plan to add flights to New York soon as well. Given that Cathay Pacific historically has a stronghold on flights between Hong Kong and the US, how does Hong Kong Airlines compare?

I boarded through the forward door, where I was pointed towards my seat by a friendly flight attendant. Hong Kong Airlines’ A350 business class cabin is entirely between doors one and two on the A350. The seats are in a staggered configuration consisting of 33 seats, spread across nine rows in a 1-2-1 configuration. The bright red finishes take some getting used to, that’s for sure.

In this staggered configuration, you have a few types of seats you can choose from. In the center section, seats alternate between being closer to one another, and being closer to the aisles. The center seats in the odd numbered rows are often referred to as honeymoon seats, because they’re so close together.
