I've flown both these airlines several times. Plain and simple, I will openly say that Cathay Pacific service has been consistently better. Also, having had friends go the Cathay pacific stewardess interviews, I can say they are pretty strict on who they hire for their attendants. Generally, I would rate China Southern as acceptable. However, Cathay I would ...

Assuming you accrued their 'Asia Miles' for the flight, you can log in and have a look at that. When you click the 'compare fare types' link, 'mileage accrual' will be shown in Fare Types section, indicating the specific fare class code. Failing that, the code may be on your ticket.

It is better to get it directly from the source as @Annoyed pointed out. If you read it the policy is: Weight system – for all locations EXCEPT the Americas, point-to-point flights between Hong Kong and New Zealand* and point to point flights between Hong Kong and Qatar. Economy: 20kg (44lbs) Piece System – for Central, North and South ...

From personal experience Cathay Pacific is much better than China Southern. Service is more polite, food looks much better (i never eat food on airplains so i cant say anything about it's taste) and seats are way better. Skytrax ratings: Cathay Pacific China Southern

I think there are actually two parts to the answer to your question. Firstly - should you join a suitable frequent traveller program? For that, consider how long it'll take to apply, it you qualify, and if there's any fees. Paid for frequent traveller programs are generally not worth it unless you do a lot of travel / stays with that program group, and even ...

It is no hassle at all to collect miles, which you can then redeem (eventually) for almost-free flights. If you will not be flying enough to earn status, you probably don't care what airline you collect into: Cathay or any of their partners will be a fine destination for your miles. The point of an alliance is that you can redeem CP miles for AA flights, or ...

Prices are based on available seats within each fare class (and economy cabins can have numerous different fare classes or fare buckets in industry parlance). The fact that you found a lower fare closer to departure simply means that on that flight there are still cheaper seats available. Airlines start with X seats in a fare class, when those seats sell ...

I'm fairly sure your leg between Stockholm and London Heathrow won't actually be operated by Cathay Pacific, but will instead be a CX flight number on a BA (British Airways) flight. However, that won't make much difference, other than meaning that whatever happens you'll have to change terminals (BA from Stockholm arrives into Terminal 5, Cathay use Terminal ...

Earlier this year, Cathay Pacific launched their own Premium Economy Class on selected routes. As part of this, they've updated their mileage table to list premium economy too. As Ankur had previously spotted tucked away, but now in plain view: Premium Economy Class W, R You can earn Club miles: 110% of actual miles flown You can earn Club sectors: 1.1 ...
