    Greetings to all!

    My partner & I will be embarking on a rather extravagant journey this March. The itinerary will be DCA-HKG-SYD-SEZ-CDG-LHR-DCA.

    My question concerns the first segment: DCA to HKG. We will be flying Cathay Pacific on a J class revenue ticket and have a choice of two flights, one connecting in JFK and the other in ORD.

    Ben, you are certainly the resident expert on CX. If you were me, which airport would connect through, JFK or ORD?

    Hmm…In both cases you’ll have to change terminals, and neither airport has a particularly nice lounge for business class passengers. So I’m not sure it matters, to be honest, and would probably personally choose the flight with the more convenient times.

    Sounds like an [I]amazing[/I] trip though, I’m sure you’ll have a great time either way!!

    I would travel via JFK for a couple reasons. CX has more flights into JFK, plus one into EWR, in case CX has any problems. Also, the weather in March can sometimes be a problem and getting from DC to New York is much more doable than Chicago in bad weather. PS – I highly recommend booking the mini-cabin in business class.

    Thanks to Tiffany & travel4b for the advice!

    JFK it is. CX’s multiple departures out of New York (in case something goes awry on our booked flight) was the deciding factor. And there is just something sexy & exciting about flying out of JFK on an international flight.
