Found the 12 hour flight comfortable with nice seats and good leg room. I had a student in front of me who spent the whole flight with their seat fully reclined even at take-off and meal times but some people are just unbelievable. Food was a bit disappointing - obviously geared for the Chinese but options were both Chinese meals...

Yet to see more lousy business class lounges at departure areas in Shanghai ( the main hub of the airline) located at one level lower with hardly any good options at Dinner time. though their lounge is...

The flight was a long one; 15 hrs. However I must say that the flight attendants came around with plenty of MEALS (not just snacks) and beverages. They made the trip as comfortable as they could.

We departed Vancouver for New Delhi with a five hour layover in Shanghai on time. Almost immediately the attendants require you to draw the blinds on the windows despite it being 1:30 in the afternoon - there is...
