It seems to work okay for me now.

It stopped working again with SeaMonkey. http://www.cathaypacific.com/xmlibe2/DownLoad.jsp is displayed if I try to check fares and availability. Should this bug be reopened or a new bug be filed?
Please reopen and contact the site and ask them what happened. Probably a new person who isn't up to speed on cross browser development. Funnily, Firefox with a spoofed Seamonkey ua worked but Seamonkey didn't. :-)
Reopening, still busted for SeaMonkey

Works great if you put "firefox" in the UA string. Totally broken otherwise.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Summary: cathaypacific.com - does not allow Mozilla → cathaypacific.com - rejects non-Firefox Gecko browsers
What are the steps to reproduce? Even with "Firefox" in the user agent string the search form always comes back eventually.
Looks like this one might be FIXED. I definitely had problems when I made comment 7, but I can't reproduce them now, and the URL in comment 4 no longer exists.
