On my way to Changsha from Tianmen mountain in Zhangjiajie, I experienced CRH's lie flat business class
Here's my seat for the next 101 minutes
CRH vs "Amtrash" Acela Express?
Hello and welcome to my trip-report on China Southern's domestic premium economy review!
Today I will be flying two segments, from Changsha (CSX) to Tianjin (TSN), and then to Harbin (HRB)
Sorry for the bad pictures that you're about to witness…
I was sick at the time of travel and I forgot to bring DayQuil with me…
Dedicated premium economy check-in line at Changsha (CSX)
Check-in was fast as expected
Security took around 5 minutes. Everyone received a full-body pat down
Xiamen Air Boeing B737-800
HNA group aircrafts…
Here's my aircraft today B-6253, a 13 years old Airbus A320
PS I hate that light pole…
The gate agent announced that the flight was delayed indefinitely…
However, 5 minutes later, she started boarding everyone.
First class and Premium economy priority boarding wasn't respected this time, but I was able to cut the economy boarding queue.
listen to this lovely boarding music
Seat pitch is good. Seat 10/10
hot towel service
The meal wasn't served in a tray, but rather just handed off to passengers like in economy
UNHEATED Bread roll wrapped in plastic
The meal was just mediocre economy class food for a 2 hours flight. 6/10
Even in premium economy, there wasn't any sort of in-flight entertainment onboard this flight, which is quite unacceptable.
Taxiing to gate
Someone's in a hurry…
China Southern's domestic Premium Economy class product was very underwhelming on this flight. The larger seats might be the only thing superior to regular economy class. The service was quite inconsistent, too, seeing that my experience on two flights that I took recently vary drastically. The lack of entertainment in premium economy class is definitely unacceptable.
