Is the thrill of flying gone? For most people these days, a commercial flight seems like a nightmare. You question whether the bags are getting better treatment than the passengers. While airlines are cutting back on amenities for coach travelers, they are shelling out big bucks to upgrade their first-class service. There are new seats with more entertainment options and larger lounges as airports try to pamper customers who pay top dollar for their flights.
Cathay Pacific just opened a new lounge in Hong Kong called "The Cabin" that has an ultra-modern design. Its "IT Zone" is equipped with high-speed internet access, plenty of PCs and Macs, iPads and even a video-conference room.
