When I fly First or Business Class in an itinerary that has multiple sectors, why am I sometimes placed in a different cabin class in one or more sectors?

With some connecting flights, you may be seated in a lower cabin class for the shorter leg of your journey due to:

  • The cabin you booked is unavailable on the aircraft
  • Limited seat availability for shorter connecting Cathay Pacific and interline flights
  • Commercial agreement with other airlines on seat availability for the cabin you booked
