Hello y'all
Welcome to another trip-report on Air China's relatively new Dreamliner!
Air China uses the 787-9 on routes like Los Angeles, Montreal, Rome, Auckland, and many other Chinese destinations.
Overall, I think the 787 is a much better option than Air China 's 777-300ER.
This is my second flight from my connecting flight from Harbin to Singapore via PEK.

Air China offers many connecting options here at PEK. Connecting from domestic to international is always an ease at PEK.

Chose the western option because the Chinese one looked unappetizing.
fruit
croissant
scrambled eggs
mysterious meat sausage
hash brown or mash potatoes can't really tell
one cold roma tomato
Chinese yogurt
TBH the only edible things are the pineapples, tomato, and the yogurt
NOT A PLEASANT MEAL

I got hungry in the middle of the flight, and I askes the FA if there is anything eat
She offered me the hard as brick croissant from breakfast
I declined
Wish Air China serves a second meal or some snacks on this 6 hours flight.

Conclusion

Air China is a cheap option when connecting through PEK
The flight was generally pleasant, although I would appreciate some snacks or refreshments during the flight.
Most passengers were asleep during the entire flight.
On this route, Singapore airlines definitely beats Air China, however SQ was about $1,200, and I paid $303 to fly Air China
I would certainly choose to fly Air China again in the future!
