    Grandpa oh and computer programmer too.
    Just arrived in HKG on CX from SYD. The strong winds meant only East West runway operating and departed 1hr:20min late and arrived that late. No problem as we have a 5 hour layover but I always like to schedule 4 as a minimum anyway. So just over an hour can be cutting it fine.

    We splurged some super on upgrading to Business and it was excellent. We did Business on CX a couple of years ago and this went even better, food has improved.

    Where it may have gone downhill over recent years is in Economy on their B777s which like most airlines saw CX densify after poor financial results.
