I haven't got many pictures of my SYD-CAN-SYX flights on China Southern Airlines so I will go directly to the return flights starting with the SYX-CAN flight.
After a short night in Sanya it was time to go home via CAN and NRT and then on to PPT. I took a taxi from the hotel to go to the airport. The journey was epic as the female driver was shouting at other taxis what I believe was indications that there were customers waiting at the Crown Plaza, only words at recognized in the conversation ! AMAZING !!!
After a crazy run that should have been part of a sitcom I arrived at the Sanya Phoenix Airport. Not a lot of people in the terminal, a few were sleeping there with their bags and a few Miss World contestants arrived just after me on a specially chartered bus for them. Some of these girls were at the beginning of a very long way home. I was already exhausted for Miss Bahamas that was at the beginning of a very long SYX-CAN-AMS-CDG-MIA-NAS !!! Phewww !
As a Flying Blue Gold Elite Plus I checked-in at the VIP counters as soon they opened.
After receiving my boarding card and my invitation I went straight to the lounge. I was the first person to enter. The lounge is rather small with compartments making it in a few small lounges. The furniture is old style and the decoration is heavy. A lot of choice for snacks and drinks but nothing fresh apart from a few fruits. Cookies, nuts, dehydrated noodles, dehydrated soups etc…
My selection for breakfast and had I known I would have stuffed myself in the lounge before the flight to Guangzhou !
I spent some time in the lounge, surfing the net, snacking and watching TV in chinese. I then went to the gate to board my flight which was going to be operated by an Airbus A320 registered B-6577 On board I was seated on the first economy class row. In front of me was Premium Economy and in front of them Business Class which was a real business class, not the european type. I had the whole row for myself which allowed me to sleep the whole flight.
Good Bye Sanya !
The welcome on board and safety demonstration video.
Our neighbor, a Capital Airlines Airbus 320.
After take off, the crew served a warm sandwich a bottle of water or glass of orange juice and a towelette.
The sandwich was by far the worst thing I was given to eat !!! To this day I still have absolutely no idea what type of meat was in that sandwich ! AWFUL !!!
Flight went by fast and here are a few pictures of our descent towards Guangzhou.
Our arrival at the international airport of Guangzhou Baiyun went without problems. Another China Southern Airlines A320 is getting ready for its next journey.
Next flight report is in business class on the CAN-NRT flown on China Southern Airlines.
Sanya - SYX
Guangzhou - CAN
The only thing that I will remember from that flight is that awful sandwich ! For the rest, China Southern did it's job, flying me between Sanya and Guangzhou in time.
