Layover at Pudong. It's becoming my most visited airport since I've done quite a number of reports on MU. I'm now very accustomed to what to expect and the procedures at the terminal. This report will cover the short hop between Pudong and Fukuoka.
China Eastern Airlines MU 517 Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) - Fukuoka Airport (FUK) B737-800 B-1965 Economy Class Gate 208
Boarding pass for this flight.
Shanghai Pudong. If you need more picture of the main terminal, you may visit my other MU reports. I was still sleepy even after catching some sleep on the previous flight. My family had a meal at Tsui Wah before heading to the gate.
Taking off from the Gates 200+ will require you to go to the ground floor. Access to the plane is via bus.
The waiting area is typically shared between two gates and flights from both gates are continuous. MU making full use of their planes.
I took another nap using an empty bench before finally being called to board. Doesn't seem like a full flight today.
We board the bus and are shuttled off to the plane.
Our bird for the flight, a B738 (B-1965), in the older MU livery. Everyone is wearing a coat because it's pretty cold, except for me. Mine was in my check-in bag.
Entering the plane, we see that the seats are the slightly newer variant which can be seen by the vibrant blue. Older cabins use a dark blue and maroon for their seats. The Y-cabin is arranged in a standard 3-3 configuration
A quick visit to the lavatory before the flight. The orchid is a nice touch by MU.
A view from my seat. I'm seated almost at the aft of the plane along with my mum. We have an empty middle seat!
The all important legroom shot. It's adequate for this short trip.
Seatback contents: Air sickness bag, Safety card, Eastern Mall Duty-Free Catalogue and Connections magazine.
The overhead screens run through several programs during this flight.
The meal is served shortly after take-off. A very decent meal from MU on this sector. Main course is steamed rice with fish in oyster sauce. It's accompanied by an assortment of Japanese appetizers, some watermelon, a bun and a caramel biscuit. Peanuts are served with the meal.
After the meal, trays are collected and we being our final descent to Fukuoka.
My seat for this flight.
Off the plane we go…
… and into another bus.
Welcome to Fukuoka!
Shanghai - PVG
Fukuoka - FUK
MU's meal surprised me on this flight. After my previous trip to Busan on MU, I was expecting something simple and plain but to receive such a meal was above all my expectations. The overall trip was comfortable enough, especially with the empty middle seat.
