I nearly didn't get the A350, I planned this from europe to go on it. I first found out about the aircraft being stuck in manila when i climbed the mountain in hong kong to film it arriving 2 days before my flight. So today at HK airport, the aircraft still wasn't showing up.

The flight showed up on FR24 at 12pm and my flight was at 4pm so i hoped and hoped.
So then i ask the ground crew what aircraft was showing, first one said the normal aircraft is A333 and then later she said it showed A359.

I did self serve check-in, that made me feel uneasy. Why don't they just have the staff to do it, I worry that they will lose their jobs.

The food was good, the cookie was a bit hard but that must be how those are meant to be. I'd like a normal drinks service that has Coke rather than this lemon tea they had.

I was disappointed with the lack of tail camera

    Nice FR thanks for sharing!

    I can relate with the anxious moments you might have just before flying a new aircraft type - happened to me before my first Dream)liner flight!!

    A350 looks like a pretty sweet plane.

    I liked the pictures and video!

    Just one minor crib - the pictures aren't in order and it feels like a scattered report.

    Thanks so much for sharing!

    Cheers.

      thanks i never seem to get the picture thing right on here, sometimes it puts them in order. I had the anxiety especially when the china airlines a350 i booked also changed their dates, so i'm like not another. But China airlines changed me free of charge to the next 1st day of the a350 so we'll have that report
