FastSRT8 wrote:JCarter, forgot to ask... do you know if the US Centurion Concierge would have different and/or more far reaching influence than say the Canadian one? I know for a fact that your US concierge # at the back of the card is different from the Canadian one. This leads me to believe they are a different service altogether? IF SO, then there may also be a difference on the kind of requests we are able to make.


Both are Circles, and they share the AmEx concierge network (TEN and Quintessentially in EU) so they can relay requests.

That's good to hear they lean on their worldwide counterparts. As mentioned in another post, I am going to Hong Kong in less than a month and plan to use the Concierge service to get me into busy restaurants and set up some shopping trips for the wife and I

I haven't gone there in years. Last time in the mid 80's. So this will be my first into the new Airport.

Plan to drink on the flight then. The landing pattern is like flying with Tom Cruise in Top Gun.

Yup.... chose to fly business with Cathay Pacific..... been using Air Canada exclusively for my North American travels and am looking forward to a real airline. I mean the lie flat seats are awesome in Air Canada's fleet BUT the ones shown in Cathay look much better.

Cathay is a great airline. I am fortunate enough to be able to require first class travel in addition to my hourly fee, so the "little room" is really worth it. If I was you I would do Vancouver to SFO on AC then code share with UA from SFO -> NRT then hop on Cathay Pacific for the flight into Hong Kong.

I'm from Vancouver BC Canada and we have direct flights to Hong Kong! The boss (wife) bless her heart told me to save the $$ for first and spend it on her shopping LOLOLOL. I'm not a big guy so Business Class is good for me. Now.... and empty first class cabin with all those beds....... AND 12 hours plus of flight time.... :D
