Cathay Pacific is not even trying to hide the fact that it is snooping on you. But is that concerning or just refreshingly honest?
In relation to your travel, Cathay Pacific advises it will collect the following information:
Information about your travel arrangements such as your travel itinerary, hotel selection, your choice of tours, car rentals or other add-ons to your travel package, details of your travel companions or persons assisting you, your activity at airport departure and arrival halls, your redemption group members, seat and meal preferences, your emergency contacts and any information relating to any special assistance that you require such as dietary requirements or health issues.
How does Cathay Pacific track your activity in airport departure and arrival halls?
The airline also advises how it will track your uses of “products and services”:
Information such as previous travel arrangements, feedback about your experiences, details of lost luggage and other claims, your use of our inflight entertainment system and inflight connectivity, your images captured via CCTV in our airport lounges and aircraft, your use of our cargo services including details of the cargo shipments, and your purchase of our duty free products and branded items.
So is Cathay Pacific spying on your internet browsing and watching you through those little cameras in your seatback in-flight-entertainment screen?
