Human Made Island

Our group of 10 (two others arrived in Indonesia earlier) has arrived in Hong Kong for our layover of a couple of hours.  The island which this airport inhabits was specifically built for the purposes of building this!

The Cathay Pacific flight that we had (code share with American Airlines) was wonderful.  So comfortable.  The seats do not recline...but don't fear! With the "recline" button, your seat cushion slides forward and an insert in the back slides down giving you the "reclined" feel without actually putting your chair in the lap of the person behind you...awesome!  The economy cabin had wonderful food...they even gave a menu in advance...and offered sandwiches and cookies/crackers in between the two main meal service times.  Great crew!  I highly recommend this airline.

Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy:
