Travelled around Beijing to see the Great Wall, Forbidden City, etc. It was time to return back to Shanghai.
Having booked the ticket through agent, was not aware of the booking or the airlines.

I'm able to handle most foods but this I didn't eat as there was strange smell and taste. Made a good decision to have a good breakfast earlier. Handed back the food tray as it is.

The flight duration was short. Soon the flight was in descend mode into Shanghai
Watch the video for landing.

Hope you enjoyed the report. Thanks for reading.
End of Trip
Beijing - PEK
Shanghai - SHA
Shanghai Airlines had good service, on-time for a domestic flight . The cabin was clean and the crew was ok, nothing more. Food was the biggest letdown.
Beijing Terminal 3 is modern with the facilities for today's traveller.
Shanghai Hongqiao Terminal didnt use much of the facilities as had to just collect the bag and step out. Taxis were available outside the terminal to head to city.
