So I have successfully managed to travel back to my home country from Bangladesh. I will list the steps I have taken from losing my passport to crossing immigration department in my home country.
Before the trip in Japan:
Notified the lost and found section of the rail lines, namely Odakyu and JR. The chances of losing anything and not finding it in Japan ...
Here is the official Cathay Pacific seating map (pick 77H from the dropdown, there are multiple different models). As you can see, seats do not line up across the aisles, although the gap is slightly less pronounced towards the front of the each economy cabin section (near rows 40 and 60).
It is fairly common practice to issue emergency travel documents to citizens who lose their passport abroad. A non-negligible proportion of people lose their passports while travelling abroad, so I doubt that a reasonably experienced check-in staff would have never seen one of them.
So, I think the answer is "do not worry, the airline check-in staff knows ...
I want two aisle seats that are directly across from each other.
As you can see in that seat map of the triple seven 300 77H:
every pair or rows doesn't directly line up to each other.
If you interested in an approximation, then I'd suggest you to check the rows 68-72, which are located towards the tail of the aircraft. Personally, I would go ...
Since Cathay is HK ailines and all planes are registered in HK, so they follow HK law.
Based on HK Law (Firearms And Ammunition Ordnance), spearfishing gun is arm. The Sect 2 of the ordinance consider any harpoon or spear gun, however powered or size, as arm. However the law does not rule the ammunition of spearfishing gun.
Base on sect 8, you may take ...
Cathay Pacific STPC (stopover paid by carrier) rules are here. They're dated from 2012 but I'm presuming they're still active.
Passengers are NOT eligible for STPC when transfer in HKG is longer
Since you have booked a stopover rather than a long, but required, connection, it appears you are not eligible.
Most airlines will allow you to get your bags during a long layover, but to be sure you should call the airline directly and ask including all your specific flight information (flight times, fare class, status, etc.)
However, if possible, I'd use carry-on for the layover. You'll be out of the airport a lot faster, you can come back to the airport later (...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Yes, you can, but the spear gun can only be taken in checked-in luggage.
First, while not a firearm it's a projectile weapon nevertheless, and all airports forbid carrying such on board in carry-on baggage or on person. Second, TSA seems to consider spear guns as sporting goods that can be used as bludgeons.

The Royal Jordanian Royal Plus partner airlines earning calculator looks to suffer the problem that most airline calculators do, which is they fail to update it often enough with the possible airports that their partners fly to
Frankfurt is on their list for Cathay Pacific, and is a similar distance.
Zurich-Hong Kong is 5776 miles / 9296 km, while Frankfurg-...
There is nothing strange about this. Depending on flight conditions or other restrictions, various services on flights have been disabled before.
Meal service is stopped if the flight is going through turbulent weather.
People are restricted to move around the cabin during normal flight.
Cabin lights may be turned on during night time flights....
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.
Just answering for the "into HKG" part of the question.
Assuming this is a direct flight from Europe (all bets are off if you connect somewhere else, obviously) and that the flight path is similar to that for LHR-HKG, probably left for a closer look at the city. It appears that the most common approach passes by the city and then loops back.
However, at ...
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 ...
Cathay/Dragon air free baggage allowance is 20KG for Economic class, but my experience 2 weeks ago in Heathrow tells you can put not more than around 24KG.
Cathay/Dragon extra bag charge is based on weight. It charges US$20 per KG from China(ZONE1) to Delhi(ZONE2), which means the extra bag costs you $460, around half of your ticket price
As you know, Indian nationals do not need a visa to enter Hong Kong for up to 14 days, but you do need to fill out and print the pre-arrival registration form before you go to the airport.
For this field in the online check-in, you may enter the notification slip number from your pre-arrival registration form.
If the two flights are booked as a single ticket, then Cathay Pacific think this is doable, and they will provide assistance and rebooking if they don’t make it because the first flight is delayed.
Incoming transit passengers do go through security checks before they can access the departure area, but this is a quick and efficient process in HKIA.
If the ...
75 minutes transit in HK is normally not an issue since your baggage etc will be checked through
But a few things you need to be aware of
You mentioned senior citizens, some times the distance between gates can be very long if you are unlucky.
If you arrive at a very busy time the transit security checkpoint can be very crowded dramatically increasing ...
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 ...
