things to do in Hong Kong

Crazy Crosswind Landing at Hong Kong Airport | Cathay Dragon A320-200

Written by Ariel



WELCOME everyone to my 6th flight in 2018. On 17th January, I flew Cathay Dragon (former Dragonair) from Naha, Okinawa (OKA) to Hong Kong (HKG) on their refurbished Airbus A320-200. My seat was 30A, an emergency exit seat, was available for USD50 or HKD390, though I reserved it for free due to my Oneworld sapphire status.

Cathay Pacific Group’s major rival- Hong Kong Airlines flies 2-3 times daily between HKG and OKA, whereas Cathay Dragon only flies 3 times a week with a mixture of their Airbus fleet: A320-200, A321-200, A330-300.

Some travellers flying between the cities may choose to have a stop at Taipei due to competitive prices offered by China Airlines and EVA Air.
