Cathay’s mile-high upgrade programme?

Having said everything about Cathay Pacific’s bad times over the last few days, one blogger claims that some airline staff will go the extra mile to please their passengers. The post, which first appeared on, is no longer available.

However, according to several newspapers, the blogger was in the first class cabin of a Boeing 777-300ER from Toronto to Hong Kong. He and his girlfriend began to get frisky and a steward, who he knew from previous flights, invited them to use the crew rest area to join the mile-high club. His description of the events makes for an interesting read.

“On these long, long flights there isn’t really anything to do after the meal service so my gf [girlfriend] and I were cuddling and watching movies. With the magnificent large bed one thing led to another and soon my friend was at our side saying, ‘Would you like the privacy of our crew rest upstairs?’

“My gf and I looked at each other and were like, sure why not? We haven’t been in the mile-high club. Now THAT left me exhausted.”

All we need right now is for some Cathay frequent fliers to begin enquiring about this “upgrade” programme.

    There are still two forums (1 Active and 1 Archived) which detail the accuracy of this blogger’s (CharlesMD) claim of being allowed into the crew rest area.

    For those who are still interested:
