Could Chinese airtravel be more comfortable than in the US?
We’re flying back to Shanghai on China Eastern.We were stopped as we boarded the plane and told to leave our carry on bags since the plane was too full.Now that we are on board, I see the overhead compartments are almost completely empty.I don’t see how that made any sense.My fingers are crossed that our bags will be waiting for us on the other side.We had one pleasant surprise on the flight.We were served dinner!I’m too used to American flights where cost cutting has eliminated food service and double drink service.Here, we got a plate of hot noodles with beef, bread, and dessert.Not exactly five star, but better than McDonalds.
I'm spending 2007 in Shanghai. This it just a place to share my thoughts and keep people updated on my life. I hope it will inform, entertain, and enrich my readers. I also hope it will cut down on my phone bills since I won't have to give everybody the 15 minute update on my trials and tribulations.
