Hello everyone this is the first leg of my 2018 Asian trip, from Los Angeles to Jinan

6/9/18 United 1861 Las Vegas - Los AngelesClick here
6/10/18 Sichuan 8700 Los Angeles - Jinan You're here
Walked to TBIT from my flight from Las VegasClick here
Walked past my ride today to China
Check-in was chaotic and only 2 counters opened for 180 economy passengers, I waited 30 minutes.
Walking towards security.
Inside in 10 minutes
Tom Bradley International Terminal Shopping mall
Qantas 747-400ER queen of the skies
The bus gates "Costco gates"
Chaotic boarding with no gate agent managing the line
The seatpitch is tight at 31" since this aircraft was configured to fly 3 hour Chinese domestic routes rather than 13.5 hour from LA to China
TO/GA take-of 25R
First meal service roasted chicken with carrots bun shrimp salad fruit Canadian water cheese & crackers
the meal was good although the bun was unheated
total BS outdated entertainment system… fine for a short domestic flight, but definitely not a 13.5 one It feels like the seat and the PED are 20 year old although the plane was only 2 year old.
The bathroom was clean with artificial flowers and scents.
Breakfast Chicken pasta with veggies Fruit
Airshow the only working thing on this entertainment system
Los Angeles - LAX
Jinan - TNA
I chose Sichuan airlines because the fare was cheap ($650rt) vs Air china ($1,100), and I got what I paid for. The only good thing about this airline is its cabin crew. Hope they fly their A350 to LAX to replace their domestic A330 on this route.
