Cathay Pacifica just neglected their customer’s basic rights and lies to the customers. Communicating with them is a disaster and a total waste of your time because you can never get an answer from them. I requested a trip cancellation from Cathay Pacifica this early July. However, I didn’t receive my partial refund until I called them in August. It turns out that the refund number is not correct at all. Over the last two months, I contacted them for 6 times and each time it takes me almost an hour over the phone. Their responses were always something like we would call or email you back within 48 hours which are totally lies. They never reached back to me to explain the incorrect refund at all! You can’t trust their words. In other ways, they don’t respect customers at all!
Cathay is an international airline. They require a mobile # to signup, confirm number, then sign-in to app. If you’re traveling internationally you may not have access to your mobile number to signup and confirm. What a genius move. I can’t get my flight info or boarding information through the app because I am in another country, which is literally the service they provide. I’m so tired of how every app is designed by stupid people. Let us sign in with just an email address morons.
Cathay Pacific lags other airlines in the functionality of their app. Very difficult to make changes and get refunds. Other airlines are automatic. But Cathay requires much additional paperwork and time to obtain a refund on such a simple matter. A the simplest mistake renders the refund application invalid. All the requested information is already in their system. But the app is immensely better than their outsourced call center which is near useless since the agents just go on the app or website to get information.
This version of the App does not allow me to purchase tickets as it claims my name is too long, even though for the last 8 years my name has been acceptable, for an airline app in APAC which requires First and Middle names it is laughable (and the reflection of a poor job of coding) that this error comes up. Perhaps someone could look into it resolving it rather than asking customers to dial in to an overburdened and understaffed call center to make one’s reservations.
Cathay’s app is truly intuitive and can handle complex check in combinations. Thank you to everyone in the tech aspect of running Cathay. Tough times but your customers will stand by you if you continue to invest through these challenging times! Keep it up.
I downloaded the app a few days ago as I had to travel on Jan 8th. I added my trip a few days ago and updated all details. Now on the day of travel, I can’t find the booking. I entered the booking reference no and it says it has been added to my bookings but nothing pulls up. Now I can’t check in. I contacted the chat on the website after signing into my laptop. No response. Very frustrating.
The app does not work. Every time I try to check in, within 48 hours as per their loyalty program, it doesn’t work. Within 24 hours like regular airlines, it doesn’t work. After checking in at the airport, and wanting to retrieve my electronic boarding pass, does not work. Every time it states check in is not available for this segment, and quotes the 48 hour check in window.
I had a load of problems with this company. 1. The WiFi on the flight didn’t work at all 2. I made a mistake and needed to make a change to my flight and the customer service agent convinced me to cancel my flight and rebook, and assured me that I would get a refund, and that someone from Cathay Pacific would contact… no one ever contacted me and now they are keeping $6000 of my money. 3. The app is impossible to use, it doesn’t even work 4. During my connecting flight I was in Hong Kong airport not knowing which gate to go to until 30 minutes before my flight 5. The food was terrible I do not recommend using this airline at all
For some reason, a flight completed two months ago is still shown as up coming, and those unpaid reservations won’t let me pay or cancel A two years old boarding pass makes me feel I am looking at a museum of my flying history than using an app of a airplane company. Can CX pay the IT guys better to get all those fixed
If I am not allowed to select a seat except within 24 hours of departure then DON’T send me an email 2 days ahead and tell me to check in any time…. So I wasted so much time online thinking I made a mistake somewhere, obviously as I found out by calling Cathay, the agent told me it was not my problem! Not a good App!
i have been with cathay pacific many years 99% of the time staff and flight are the best and my loyalty for cathay is unmatched in all the years only one bad experience with a staff member in jfk airport but then again its jfk airport🙄 thank you cathay for being wonderful to me looking forward to the next flight
I’ve had to delete the app because I used to use the Asia miles app and now they’ve merged it into this one but it’s just a terrible idea. Poor quality and bad decision. Bring back the separate Asia miles app for your customers!!!
