It is a legal requirement that you follow the instruction of our crew at all times. The following advice will help ensure your safety throughout the flight.
CABIN BAGGAGE: YOUR RESPONSIBILITY
Cathay Dragon takes the safety of its passengers and crew seriously. Observing your baggage limitations is essential for your safety and comfort. Due to Occupational Health & Safety regulations, cabin crew are encouraged not to lift or carry passengers’ cabin baggage. Passengers are recommended to check in any cabin bags that they would not be able to lift into the overhead compartments. Any cabin baggage in excess of the allowable size or weight limits will be loaded with checked baggage. Where possible, our cabin crew will assist passengers with disabilities, those who are frail or infirm, the elderly, minors travelling alone and passengers travelling with infants or small children.
Please take care when opening and closing the overhead compartment to ensure that items inside do not fall out. Please close the compartment after use. Aircraft coat closets are designed for the stowage of coats, jackets and coat hangers only.
Due to regulatory requirements cabin crew may ask for certain personal items to be stowed during take- off and landing.
PERSONAL ELECTRONIC DEVICES (PED)
Small handheld personal electronic devices, such as smart/ mobile phones, tablets and eBooks in ‘Flight Safe/Airplane’ mode with WiFi and Bluetooth functions disabled, may be used throughout the flight. The use of certain personal electronic devices is restricted inflight, as they may interfere with the aircraft systems and must remain off inside the aircraft. Where these devices have Bluetooth or Wi- Fi functions, they must be disabled inflight. If you lose your device in your seat do not adjust the seat until it has been located.
Larger electronic devices such as laptops, notebooks and portable DVD players must be stowed away for taxi, take-off and landing.
Please note that charging of personal electronic devices using in-seat power is not permitted during taxi, take-off and landing. No personal electronic devices may be plugged into the aircraft’s utility electrical power supply outlets, except for electric shavers which may only be used in the appropriate sockets in the lavatories. Aircraft utility electrical power outlets are not for consumer products.
Personal electronic devices that are prohibited from use at all times are: radios and transmitters, such as televisions, AM or FM or digital radios, walkie-talkies, amateur radio/ transceivers, citizen band (CB) radios/scanners and remote controlled devices/toys; network and connecting devices, such as wireless Local Area Network ( WLAN) devices; personal appliances, such as air purifiers, smokeless cigarettes and electric massagers; domestic appliances, such as kettles, irons, heaters, hair dryers and electrical inverters/ converters. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone devices are prohibited and may not be transported on passengers, in carry- on baggage or in checked baggage. Passengers can refer to cathaypacific.com for more details or follow the instructions of the crew onboard.
MEDICAL ELECTRONIC DEVICES ONBOARD
Cathay Dragon allows medical portable electronic devices to be used inflight if advance notice has been provided. Only certain devices can be connected to the inflight laptop power 110V AC outlets. We cannot guarantee that every aircraft is equipped with the inflight laptop power 110V AC outlets or that the outlets will be serviceable and therefore we recommend that devices are self-powered (using drycell or approved gel-type battery packs). All critical devices should be entirely self-powered. All batteries must be carried in accordance with the relevant authority regulations and requirements for safety, security and hazardous material. Contact our local reservations office or visit cathaypacific.com for more details.
OTHER IMPORTANT REMINDERS
Sharps boxes are provided inflight for disposal of sharps like syringes or ampoules. Please ask our crew for assistance.
The use of devices that affect or restrict the functionality of any aircraft product onboard is strictly prohibited. All Cathay Dragon flights are NON-SMOKING flights. The toilets have smoke detectors installed. Smoking or tampering with these detectors is an offence and can incur a fine of up to HK$50,000 and a maximum of two years’ imprisonment.
Electrical cigarettes are prohibited to be used onboard.
