This is the second leg of the my trip to Wuxi. Pretty tired as I got up early so I'm already excited to head to the hotel but I had a long transfer wait in HKG.
Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) - Sunan Shuofang International Airport (WUX)
ATD: 05:30PM (40 minutes late)
ATA: 07:55PM (25 minutes late)
After disembarking from my previous flight, I had to go through a security check before heading to the departure hall.
After the security checks, I am finally allowed to head towards the departure hall.
I enjoy being in this airport with its high ceilings and large clear windows for plane spotting.
Went plane spotting with it being nice and bright out in Hong Kong. Please enjoy the gallery of planes below.
Having a look at the FIDS but my gate would not be released till an hour before my flight.
Finally, the gate is announced and I make my way to the waiting area.
The waiting area is pretty full from all the low-cost flights waiting to leave.
I was reissued a new boarding pass for this leg.
Boarding is announced and a queue forms with ground staff checking boarding passes.
After scanning my boarding pass, I was shepherded onto a bus along with other passengers.
We board the plane via steps which was uncomfortable in the summer heat.
Onboard, the economy cabin is arranged on the standard 3-3 configuration with simple blue seats.
Seat pitch is average but the middle seat is empty so I get a little more seat space to share with my seatmate.
Final shot from the ground. I love the TK plane taking off in the background.
Passengers are still placing baggage in the overhead bins while the cabin crew handed out newspapers.
Seat-back material is basic with a safety card, Shenzhen Airlines magazine and an airsickness bag.
The crew served a pre-flight drink while we sat on the tarmac. We were delayed slightly as the incoming flight was late.
Finally, we started taxiing to the runway. Passing by an Air Canada
And a Hello Kitty EVA Air which was ahead of us.
Finally, we took off over Hong Kong. I wish I was there instead.
Took more photos as there was no IFE to keep me occupied.
Visited the lavatory for some obligatory photos. I wouldn't rate it highly as the floor was wet and tissues were all over.
Took a shot of the cabin from the rear of the plane.
An in-flight meal was served, the options are chicken with rice or pork with noodles. I opted for the noodles. What I got was a very decent meal from ZH. I was expecting something much simpler but a full meal with fruit and dessert was good. The cabin crew also served chili sauce (the dark brown goop on top) for those who wanted it.
The crew went around offering a second meal for those who wanted it.
The sun was setting on this side of the globe.
Our flight landed and after a short taxi, we disembarked.
Even in this small airport, we got off from the steps.
After immigration, I went to collect my bag. The arrival hall is very much a void with no shops and the taxi stand is a distance away.
A very basic flight with a decent meal, I'm glad that the flight wasn't too long as the cabin temperature was pretty warm.
