Their biz class products are different.
My DPS-HKG was different than the BKK-HKG I took. It had more of a 'suite' feel since each seat was in it's own pod, and not simply in a row.

Yes, I know I am reviving an old thread, but there seems to be no other Cathay master thread.

Trying to book Cathay First but noticing that they are only releasing 1 seat even a year in advance. I need 2 seats. Is this a new thing?

Seems to be more normal then you think. Don't release a lot anymore and if then you might be better off booking J and hoping that they release award space very close to the departure date.

Couple different blogs covering this topic.
