Second, for ice-cream lovers, you may fall in love immediately with Cathay Pacific Airlines and get some more after trying one. Lots of people highly recommend Cathay Pacific ice-cream for desserts. Last but not least, Cathay Pacific also has tasty cakes which passengers cannot resist. If you travel with Cathay Pacific during Moon Festival (in August Lunar calendar), you have chance to try high quality moon cakes. They are just right oriental tastes to celebrate the Moon Festival. Don’t forget to try a bite of moon cake when you travel with Cathay Pacific Airlines during this special occasion.

Apart from other advantages, there remains a minor drawback. Main dish in economy class is not quite good. Passengers don’t have many choices. Food does not taste very good either.
