Welcome to this trip-report that reviews Air china's A320 economy product.

My journey would be simple

Air China A320 Economy Shanghai Pudong International Airport(PVG) - Taipei Taoyuan International Airport(TPE)
Air China A330 Economy Taipei Taoyuan International Airport(TPE) - Shanghai Pudong International Airport(PVG)

I arrived at terminal 2, 3 hours before departure. Terminal 2 is used mainly by Star Alliance and One world Members and Terminal 1 is used by Skyteam Members(although there are some anomalies)

The airport still has the old departure board.

The check-in was a shared check-in with other Air China International Flights. The Line although was short at this time of the day.

Some pictures of the airport after immigration.

On my way to the plane , there was some more plane spotting oppurtunities.

One of the notable spot is the Air New Zealand B787 to Auckland


We entered the old aircraft using a jetbridge.

The safety card for this flight

The seats were very plain and lacked comfortability.

The flight was uneventful and no meal was served during the flight. The flight attendents were only seen during departure and arrival.

    Thanks for sharing. It's a bit odd that the FAs sort of disappeared, and please note the type is wrong, it's an A321, a stretch to the classic A320, It would be correct saying that it was part of the A320 Family but you can toggle that. I wonder why they disappeared, political reasons?
