CHINESE CRH BUSINESS CLASS


On my way to Changsha from Tianmen mountain in Zhangjiajie, I experienced CRH's lie flat business class

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)

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.

The meal wasn't served in a tray, but rather just handed off to passengers like in economy

Even in premium economy, there wasn't any sort of in-flight entertainment onboard this flight, which is quite unacceptable.

Conclusion

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.
