    Cathay Pacific offers one of my all around favorite first class products. What I love about Cathay Pacific is how well rounded the product is -- from the seat to the service to the bedding to the entertainment, it's a fabulous experience. Also, now that Cathay Pacific has more or less retired their entire 747 fleet, the only planes that still have first class are select Boeing 777-300ERs.

They've been good about releasing first class award availability in advance and then again close to departure. Back in August I wrote a post about Cathay Pacific first class award availability trends, in which I explained that Cathay Pacific typically makes all but one first class seat on each flight available for awards within a couple of days of departure.
