I thought western China was Xinjiang. Places like Dali, Lijiang and Xishuangbanna are in Yunnan, which is in southwest China.

I'm surprized there is a demand for Prague-China flights. I thought their 2 A310's were fully occupied on the N/A routes?

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

I see some people still havent realised that CSA here refers to China Southern Airlines and not the Czech carrier.
