CA769 - Economy - Shenzhen -> Los Angeles - Boeing 777-300ERComing soon
After my lovely 12 hour flight from Los Angeles, I have a 3 hour connection before flying home to Manchuria.
It said no picture on the gate but oh well didn't see it.
Chinese immigration: Not friendly, but they can't deport me American immigration: Friendly until they put me in the detention centre.
Beijing capital international airport terminal 3 international to domestic transfer
Golly this airport is hot! (Not its appearance but its lack of air conditioning).
Follow the domestic transfer sign. (No need to reclaim my bags since Air China would check them straight to my destination HRB.)
Gotta swipe my boarding pass to get in the transit area.
And it led up domestic security.
Transfer done within 10 minutes!

Well, I expected real tulip…
air china terminal 3c domestic lounge
My mom went inside with her business class ticket. I have priority pass and a boarding pass in economy so I have to wait until 6am for it to open up for PP guests. (Second time she had abandoned me today)
Thanks American Express. I saved $15 from eating airport food!
Decent lounge for domestic flights. My only complaint is that the fridge is not cold enough!
Breakfast. Chinese tropicana comes in a glass bottle but no straw.
And ham sandwich with no ham and chinese yogurt with a straw that's too short for my tropicanna.
I have a dream that one day passengers will be able to plane spot from longues. I have a dream that one day we will not have to choose between the lounge and the public area with no outlets to plane spot. I have a dream that one day PEK will take down those annoying steel glass frame.
There is a map…
Book store selling fancy airpods
My gate was only a short 3 minute walk from the lounge.
Thundershower? Nah it's Manchuria we don't really care.
Funny thing. When I booked the flight, the seat map showed a 332, and so did flightradar24. But it was changed into a 321 2 days before departure.
You would think we're boarding from the jetbridge.
Brand new Air China A350-900.
We didn't. Instead, we were put on a crowded bus with no AC to remote ramp.
Here it's my ride today, a good old boring A321.
Really hoping that one of them fall over so that I can enjoy real world dominoes.
It may be boring but still billion times better than the plane I fly in the states (Cessna 172).
ANA going to Japan. Coming soon March and April 2020.

Metal tube for the next 2 hours or so.
Legroom is wonderful. I really did wear matching clothes today!
Non adjustable headrest but plenty of padding.
And the passengers switched seats in the middle of pushback.
FA did nothing to stop them.
Spoilers checks. (Ugh dirty window)
And we are off. WTH we took off on schedule? This never happens!
No entertainment onboard. I brought a magazine with me. It was hardly entertaining…
Before I knew it, we started our descent.
On final for runway 23. Back to where I was 6 hours ago!
Swift taxi to the terminal.
Walked over to baggage claim. Bag came out 5 minutes after. I was already in the parking lot before our schedules arrival time. This trip has been so smooth and calm so far…
Welcome to Harbin, China!

This made me laugh because I always notice how warm airports feel outside the US. I guess I'm too used to the air conditioning being set to Arctic-Blast ❄ in the US haha
A big win for a domestic China flight!
The seats look nicely padded and the legroom looks really good. I would have though you were in the Extra Legroom seats up towards the front so was suprised to see you were in 29A.
Thanks for sharing!
