My parents arrived for visit #5 today -this time they are staying for 3 months....
They flew with Cathay Pacific and said it was a great journey - they thought the 'shell' seats were great (and my parents are both on the large side) because people can recline in front of you and it doesn't affect your space. I have heard a few negative reports about the seats on Cathay but my 'olds' thought they were great. Maybe they have different seats on different planes?
They got off the plane at Hong Kong to see a big sign with their names on asking them to report to an attendant....they thought they were in trouble for importing marmite, tapioca and Tesco's cheese balls. They had been selected for an upgrade to business class!! They don;t know how or why but they have now decided they can't come and visit each year as they will be saving for business class in the future...!!!
I've taken the day off work to be with them and they have requested the afternoon to relax. How rude!
