Airbus A340-300
The Cathay Pacific A340 seating plan has two Business Class cabins at the front. Cathay Pacific A340 Business Class is the slightly older Olympus seat with high walls. Many passengers prefer the smaller rear cabin, but it is suffers from noise from economy. The left aisle has double the traffic, but is better for couples to talk over the aisle.

The Cathay Pacific A340 Economy class seating chart is divided into two cabins separated by a large toilet block. It is impossible to get from one aisle to another so there are longer queues & more traffic in the left aisle. A small IFE box under the window seat is very unobtrusive.

A Cathay Pacific A340 economy class review shows the best seats are normally regarded as 30A & 30K, however these aren't the prefered seats. If you pay extra for extra legroom seats you'll end in 54A or 554K, which are blighted by lightspill, even though these CX A340 best seats are normally reserved for Cathay Pacific's most frequent flyers. If you look at the Cathay Pacific A340 floor plan you'll see why many passengers much prefer the Cathay Pacific A340 front cabin economy seats. With three windows, no basinette, far away from engine noise and very quiet, seats 30A, 30C, 30H and 30K are by far the best seats on the A340.
Cathay Pacific fly the A340 on these routes from Hong Kong: Auckland CX107/108, Brisbane CX157/156, Rome (FCO) CX293/292, London (LHR) CX257/256, Toronto (YVR) CX838/839, Moscow (DME) CX207/206.
