Hong Kong Airlines has commenced its new service to Los Angeles, further cementing its growing presence in North America, following the launch of a daily service to Vancouver earlier this year, the company said.
Los Angeles also becomes the carrier´s first destination in the Continental United States, with San Francisco and New York to follow in 2018.
Passengers traveling on Hong Kong Airlines´ inaugural Hong Kong to Los Angeles flight were the first to dine from a series of newly designed tableware, consisting of chinaware, glassware, and cutlery.
Hong Kong Airlines has partnered with award-winning, local homeware design brand JIA Inc. (“JIA”) and inflight experience specialists CLIP to develop a new selection of exclusive Business Class tableware that showcases the city´s unique heritage and culture.
Working with international designers, JIA looks to infuse traditional Chinese dining habits with modern accessibility — in doing so, creating new interpretations through design that are a marriage of Eastern and Western elements.
