Pros: "not much did i like"
Cons: "the boarding was half an hour late with no explanation or warning then we sat for half an hour on the plane without take off. I asked the crew what was happening and reminded them this was a passenger flight not a cargo flight. How about the captain or someone doing something crazy like advising the cabin what is happening? Completely lost on the Chinese psyche it seems. The food was minimal, about a desert spoon of overcooked chicken, piles of rice and an unedible vegetable. I managed to get two thimble full glasses of wine."

Pros: "Gray legroom! Efficient staff."

Cons: "We were given the wrong information as for as needing a Visa for China..... Out of a lot of money....."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I am 6'3 and clearly too tall for economy. There was no legroom and we had to sit on the plane for 2 hours before able to depart - not sure why"
