I knew it… I missed my connection upon arrival in Hong Kong. As soon as I deplaned there was a Cathay agent with my original flight on a name card and it looked like I wasn’t the only one who missed their connection. I was protected on the next flight to Taipei except I was downgraded to Business Class because First Class was already full. At this point I didn’t care it was a downgrade, I just wanted to get to Taipei as soon as I can. Since my new flight will start to board soon, I didn’t make it to a lounge. I was assigned 15A, which was a bulkhead window seat that was missing a window. Normally I would be upset but this is only an hour flight so I didn’t really care much.
Even with this short flight, breakfast was served. Keep in mind, I was just fed about 2 hours prior so I just got the light option. It isn’t the best dim sum but it was quite good for airplane food.
And before I knew it, the captain announced that we would be descending into Taoyuan International Airport.
Overall the flight was fine, we arrived in Taipei a little early and the flight crew was friendly. Now the bigger question would be “Did my checked luggage make the trip?”. We would have to see… in my next post!
