Delta and American have both enhanced/started services to Hong Kong a few days ago.

Seattle is one of my aspirational destinations (though I’ve yet to update my list of them), and I’m excited for Delta’s new route from Seattle to Hong Kong. Delta’s probably one of the better US airlines (according to reviews), so it’s a good way to go for now (I’d choose Cathay over it, if they ever start service there).
Delta will be running an Airbus A330-200 daily between these cities, which features a reverse herringbone business class product. Though they don’t have an adjustable headrest and the padding isn’t phenomenal, the layout is one of the best in the sky, which I’m not too excited about since unless Cathay codeshares with them there’s not really any way to redeem miles and travel on them (for me). Economy will have a seat pitch of 32 inches, which is standard for all airlines. Economy Comfort will have a 35 inch seat pitch.
This is great, and I’ll just have to work hard to drag my dad onto a long flight – or grow up and leave without him. 😉
