Mandarin Airline's parent company is China airlines, AE mainly operates domestic and regional international flights; In HKG airport, there is only one airline operating Embraer aircraft to this airport and this is Mandarin airlines; In 2014, Mandarin Airlines operates HKG-RMQ and HKG-TNN with their E190 aircraft.

Still some time before boarding, i went to take some photos of aircraft

Is time for boarding, E190 only use outer bay

I love using outer bay since it will give me a great opportunity to take some great shots of aircraft closely

Conclusion

Is a rare opportunity for me to travel on E190 since there is only one airline operates such aircraft; The seat is very comfortable for short haul flight. No IFE but is reasonable since Mandarin airlines only operates domestic and regional international flights which i don't think IFE is needed, the meal was a pleasant surprise for such a short flight with high quality. I like this airline in general and i will definitely fly with them again.
