China Southern Airlines........Biz Class

Wed Oct 15, 2003 5:10 pm

Heya,

I am going to the Netherlands to work in February for a year and have to start looking for flights.
I really want to fly business class, as its a long trip from Melbourne, Australia to Amsterdam.

I have been looking at cheaper business class fares and China Southern are the cheapest.

Does anyone know what China Southerns Business product are like?
The operate the B777 from Melbourne all the way to AMS.
Has anyone here flown CZ C Class?

Also, the flight schedules from Guangzhou (CAN) to AMS display one stop on the way. Does anyone know where it is? I have a feeling it may be Moscow but arent sure,

Can anyone help??

Thanks

GF

To Gulfair,

China Southern flies B777s on Australia/China routes, and most of their B777s operated on these routes are in three classes - Premium Business Class, Pearl (Business) Class & Economy Class.Currently, China Southern is undergoing a upgrade program for its Premium Business Class on B777s between Australia and China, installing the latest flat bed etc.

But I guess the class you looked at was probably the Pearl (Business) Class, you will find PTVs (most are offering a choice of about 9 channels), 40 inch pitch roomy seat and each seat could recline up to a comfortable 120 degrees, suitable for a good night's rest. Also, Pearl (Business) Class seats have an individual satellite telephone. By the way, great choices of gourmet dishes you will always find on the Pearl (Business) Class hehe...

Meanwhile, most cabin crew are arguably friendly & helpful, but some of them are a little bit poor on their English skills, nevertheless I guess you will find most of them are quite okay with pretty-look lol...

As for your flight from Guangzhou (CAN) to Amsterdam (AMS), if I'm not mistaken, yout will get a stopover in Beijing (PEK) [about 90 mins].

By the way, please don't forget to reconfirm your booking if you break your journey at a specific point for more than 72 hours, please reconfirm the continuing or return flight at least 72 hours prior to the departure of next online segment. Failure to do so may cause the cancellation of the booking.

Regards.
