Here is what Francis Wong, a flyer from Hong Kong wrote about his experience with HK Express: “Onboard service was on par with any regular airlines. The seating is 3×3 with acceptable seat pitch. No entertainment so bring your own. Food was served immediately after take off. My pre ordered hot meal was delivered with a smile plus a free bottle of water. The quantity is small, but the taste was actually quite good. The pilot was from Australia and the high standard and safety is very reassuring. 2:40 hours passed by quickly and we landed in Chiang Mai perfectly on time.”
