Cathay Pacific will resume nonstop service between Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and Hong Kong International Airport (HKG). The route was suspended during the pandemic, but will restart on October 3rd.

Cathay Pacific, is the flag carrier of Hong Kong and currently flies to Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), and San Francisco International Airport. Starting next month, Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) will be back on the route map.

Cathay Pacific A350-1000

Flights will operate 3x weekly on an Airbus A350-1000 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The aircraft has 46 Business Class, 32 Premium Economy, and 256 Economy seats. There is no First Class offered on this aircraft.

Anthony’s Take: It’s great to see nonstop service return from my home to my favorite global city, Hong Kong. Now if only United would resume the route. Maybe this will motivate them.

I adore flying Cathay, especially to or from ORD. Unfortunately they have been releasing zero business or first class award seats from the eastern part of the country since Covid.

I flew Cathay first class ORD-HKG around 2016. The biggest problem is that the lounge provided by the ticket was the sad British Air one that lacked windows, The only food I recall there being was finger sandwiches and cup-o-noodles.
