Los Angeles - Singapore
Nice clean planes flown by China's best pilots. Have not had accidents. Went on Boeing 777 ER from LAX to PEK. Had 16 hours layover so took the tram line to downtown Beijing for food and sight seeing, very nice lay over, much better than laying over in Shanghai or Guang Zhou.

"For Asian flight highly recommended in matter of price/service value"
"Arrive at the airport early and eat beforehand if you don't like Chinese takeaway."
"Transfer in Beijing, much better than previous trip. KFC and Pizza Hut - limited menu choice, priced as in US."
"If you're tall, definitely look for a seat with extra leg room. Otherwise it can be tight."
"If possible try to upgrade your seat once on the plane it costs far less"
