I love Cathay, too! Their business and first class are AWESOME. And the best part -- I can share my miles with family members. I was recently able to give all of my miles to my mom so that she could fly overseas, which I didn't even know was possible until a friend told me. Thumbs up! :)

I asked and the answer I got was the flight was too short a duration for a movie! BS!
