Yes, I do fly economy sometimes! Particularly on short-hauls, it makes a lot of sense because the benefits of premium cabins are low and cash or miles prices are usually cheap.

Cathay Dragon is Cathay Pacific’s rebranding of its subsidiary, Dragonair. Dragonair is primarily a regional airline but does serve some mid-hauls with lie flat seats.


My seat, 28H

Much more legroom than our last flight :p

No IFE, but you can stream from a phone or tablet.

Full meal service on a 2.5 hour flight? I’d be impressed except I’ve seen Air France and KLM do it on sub 1.5 hour short-hauls.
