Cathay Pacific Business Class Now Available From Washington-Dulles (IAD) to Hong Kong (HKG) As Their Longest Route
I love taking long flights. I’ve flown many of the world’s longest flights including the world’s longest by Singapore Airlines from Newark, NJ (EWR) to Singapore (SIN). So of course I was excited to hear that Cathay Pacific has launched their foray into the mix with the their 8,154M/13,123KM from Hong Kong to Washington-Dulles, Virginia which is offering their new Cathay Pacific Business Class product.
The flight was launched on September 16, 2018 operating four times a week initially. Here’s the schedule:
