Conclusion

It was a nice flight for me. Although there are not provide any cert for this flight. It have
a touching speech by captain to the passengers. CI do a good job for this flight.
They let us to visit the cockpit and rest area for this flight.

For the seat, it looks outdated but it still comfy enough. The food was fine and look
full for this short flight.

Don't forget thanks the cabin crew, their kindly attitude let us feel we are at home.
Anyway, A340-300 is a important fleet for CI to extend their long haul flight.
