Hi readers! I took flight KA626 from HKG to HGH on 24/8/2017.
I had joined Wing On Travel for a 5 days Huadong trip.
To the airport:
At 0250, I woke up. Very tired. I got about 4 hrs of sleep. I did my grooming, then did a final check to my luggage. At 4am, I left home to take the overnight cityflyer bus NA29 to airport. Since Super Typhoon Hato affected HK the day before I left for the Huadong trip, and brought a Hurricane Signal 10 to HK, devastating views could be seen.
After Severe Typhoon Hato
Arriving at the bus stop at 0407, I waited for the bus, which arrived at 0415.

On the way to Airport! Location: Cheung Ching Tunnel, which implemented single tube both ways traffic
At the airport:
I arrived at the airport at 5:10am, 10 mins before the scheduled meeting time. The tour guide told me to come back to the meeting place at 6am, so I walked around the terminal. After retrieving my documents, I went to check in.
Bye bye luggage, see you in HGH!
After crossing the immigration, I headed to Cafe de Coral to have a short breakfast. Then, I headed to gate 502.
Going to the gate from the main terminal
I took the bus from the main terminal to gate 502, located in the satellite terminal. Upon arriving there, I got some time, so I did some plane spotting.

At 0720, boarding commenced! There were a long queue towards boarding.
Goodbye, Hong Kong! See you in 5 days! Photos taken in the jetbridge.
After I settled myself, I took photos of the seat (contents).
At 0754, the plane pushed back, and at 0759, we started taxi to rwy 07R for departure! Finally, we started the takeoff roll at 0816 and rotated after about 30 secs. Hangzhou here we come!
After 16 mins, at 0832, we cruised at FL246 (7,500m, as china uses the metric system, unlike most countries who used the imperial system). Breakfast was distributed as soon as we leveled off at cruising altitude. The breakfast was quite nice, with the exception of the egg. That was terrible.
After breakfast, coffee and tea services started. I got the cup of coffee, which is nice!
At 0927, our flight descended to FL226 (6,900m) for some time, then continued descent. After 1 hr 50 mins in the air, we landed in HGH airport runway 25 smoothly. Taxiing was quick, and we arrived gate 213 at 1010.
