Included: tomatos, mustard silk, cake, cookies, sandwich and drinks.
More than enough for inland flight, but the food is not tasty. I don't like the chinese food.

Leg room is OK:

Conclusion

China southern is nice airline.
They have new fleet, the aircraft wasn't so clean, even It was 2 years old when I traveled.
The food is nice for short inland flight, but It's not tasty for me.
The crew is nice. The leg room is OK, but I'm only 1.70M, so for taller people it might be not enough.
The flight experience is nice, It was little bumpy due to the rainy weather. The landing was hard. Maybe the chinese pilots are less gentle than the European or Israeli pilots? It could be.

    Thanks for sharing this report with nice pictures! The CZ livery makes the aircraft look sharp in the pictures.
    For a domestic Chinese flight, the cabin is clean and tidy while seat pitch is good.
    The meal box looks nice, but I would expect there would be a full meal (not sandwich) for this flight length.
    Look forward to your next report!
