This would be a quick report on my recent trip to Guangzhou for a short getaway, covering the flights and of course lots of great Cantonese cuisine. Flight up was via Scoot, and after the recent flights on SQ Business and Suites, it was a humbling experience to be back on a LCC-dense A320.

Visit to the SATS Premier Lounge in T2. It was rather busy, with travellers mainly from the European airlines heading to Europe. There was even a section cordoned off for one of the airlines. However most of the guests headed off for their flights soon.

F&B offerings were fairly average.

The aircraft operating tonight's flight had arrived from Taipei and being turned around.

Just a short walk to the boarding gate. It was nearing departure time but boarding had not started due to the short turnaround time allocated.

Boarding commenced and judging by the queue in the airbridge, it was gonna be a very full flight.

Seated at Row 5, and yes the cabin was nearly full. SQ had cancelled it evening departure, and Scoot had downgraded some of the flights to the A320, and hence I believe everyone on the evening flight was packed on this tiny A320.

Scoot reading materials long with the expected tight legroom.

Boarding was completed only slightly after STD, by then I believed we missed our departure slot, and waited for more than half hour till pushback.

Finally departed from Rwy02C almost an hour behind schedule.




IT was an uneventful flight, skipped the BOB, and was stuck at the window seat on this full and cramped 3.5hrs flight. After a very long 3.5hr, we descended into Guangzhou.

Landing 30min behind schedule, and it was followed by an eternity of taxiing to the terminal.

Disembarking. Seated towards the front of the aircraft, we managed to rush ahead of the rest of the passengers (and ahead of the AirAsia flight which arrived just behind us at the adjacent gate) to immigration, and managed to clear immigration without a wait.

Conclusion

Other than the 30min arrival delay into Guangzhou, the flight was uneventful and as expected of a LCC.
