I'm able to handle most foods but this I didn't eat as there was strange smell and taste. Made a good decision to have a good breakfast earlier. Handed back the food tray as it is. Descending towards Hongqiao
The flight duration was short. Soon the flight was in descend mode into ShanghaiWindow View

After disembarking, bus took passengers to the terminal. After collecting bag, exited the airport and took taxi to Shanghai Pudong.Taxi ride to city
The sky was clear being a weekend.Summary
Shanghai Airlines had good service, on-time for a domestic flight . The cabin was clean and the crew was ok, nothing more. Food was the biggest letdown.
Beijing Terminal 3 is modern with the facilities for today's traveller.
Shanghai Hongqiao Terminal didnt use much of the facilities as had to just collect the bag and step out. Taxis were available outside the terminal to head to city.
