My family arrived at HCMC's Tan San Nhat Int'l Airport's Terminal 2 at 23:20 PM on Jul 13, and after we arrived, we went to China Southern Airline's Check-in counter and checked-in for CZ8318, and received the seat 36A.
After we checked-in, we proceeded to the customs and security, and because this flight was a red-eye flght, there was barely any one at customs and security, so we entered airside under 15 mins, and after we entered airside, I went into spotting mode, and spotted the following aircrafts/flights.
A Jetstar Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner registered VH-VKD preparing for JQ64 which departed 01:04 AM local time on Jul 14.
A Emirates B777-31H(ER) registered A6-EPT preparing for EK393 to Dubai which departs 23:55 PM local time on Jul 13, and a ANA B787-8 Dreamliner registered JA878A staying overnight for NH834 to Narita which departs 07:00 AM local time next day.
The China Southern Airlines B737-81B(WL) registered B-5760 carrying my to Wuhan as CZ8318.
Boarding for CZ8318 commenced at 01:10, and our family immeiadtely boarded CZ8318 as my little brother was also travelling with us.
After I have boarded B-5760 and settled in my seat, I saw B-5760's winglets and also saw an China Southern Airlines A320-232 registered B-6910 scheduled to depart at 04:55 AM local time for Shenzhen Bao'an Int'l Airport as CZ8474.
After all passengers have boarded, the CSN cabin crews armed the L1 door, and then the Gate disconnected, and then at 01:25 pushback commenced as the safety video began and the CFM56-7B26E began to start.
We pushed onto the taxiway at 18:28 UTC, and then we begin taxing at Rwy 25r at 18:30 UTC, and arrived at Rwy 25R at 18:37 UTC
We arrived at Rwy 25R at 18:37 UTC, and then we began to line up Rwy 25R at 18:38 UTC, and as soon we lined up on Rwy 25R, we began to roll down Rwy 25R.
After we began to roll down the runway, we pulled up smoothly 1 mins after.
Shortly after takeoff, we reached cruise, and after we reached cruise, I went and fell asleep until around 20:40 UTC above Guangzhou where the cabin crews began to serve us delicious breakfasts.
After breakfest, I began to look out the window and look at CSN's megazine.
At around 21:12 UTC on Jul 14, I saw Jul 14's sunrise, which was very beautiful, and then at around 21:25 UTC, we began to descend towards WUH/ZHHH
As we started to apporach and line up WUH's Rwy 22L, we entered a area of fog and dust, but even with the low visibility, our capt/fo still managed to do a soft buttered landing.
Shortly after we've stopped downed, we vacated Rwy 22L as I saw the Wuhan Tianhe Int'l Airport in the fog.
After 4 mins of taxing, we arrived at our parking stand/stand 337 at 22:01 UTC as our engine shutted downed and the cabin door disarmed.
Few mins after, we disembarked the aircraft as we boarded a bus to the International arrival section since we parked at the Domestic side at WUH/ZHHH.
After we road the bus to the International Arrival area, our family went to China Customs and then we went to purchase tickets for the InterCity Train to Xiaogan East Station under C5323 which departs 00:43 UTC operated by an CRH2A-2017.
20 mins after we departed from WUH/ZHHH, we arrived at our final destnation, Xiaogan East Station at 01:00 UTC AM.
Overall, WUH/ZHHH is a great airport with many kinds of transportation reaching it, and CZ8318 is definetly a flight that everyone should try post-covid 19.
