Having arrived from Shanghai few days earlier. Read report here : Hainan Airlines HU 7206 SHA - PEK

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.

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.

Hope you enjoyed the report. Thanks for reading.

End of Trip

Love this. Reminds me of my flights I took with FM back in '15 on two 737s. They still offered meals on the inbound to PVG (with MU branding) and none on the outbound since it was a red eye. 2 hour delay inbound and 1 hour out.

Thanks for posting all the pictures. I assume there's a lot of smog in many of these pictures? I especially liked seeing all the high-rise apartment buildings. I'll take the noodles! Great trip report.

Thanks. Had option of waiting till 11.30 at night and flying on a 737.

I had been on Gulf Air, Royal Brunei 767-200/300's hadn't documented those flights. Boeing 767 were getting rare, hence took the flight. Overall experience was good.

It was smoggy in Beijing most of the time, while I was there. Only on weekend did the sky clear up.
