I got back from my 8th grade class trip to China on Saturday. I had a great time although I missed airliners.net. I am very pleased with the changes, thanks Johan Anyways, here goes...
Tuesday, April 18: Flight No. NW087 DTW-PEK (Detroit-Beijing) Northwest Airlines 747-400 N????
This flight was very good. I had never flown Northwest Airlines international coach and I must say I was suprisingly pleased. The flight attendants were friendly and the food was okay. It was my first taste of real Asia. The flight lasted 12:59, but it certaintly wasn't the longest 13 hours of my life. I thought flying on the 747-400 would be like no experience ever, but nothing really was that special except for the take off and landing. It was cool though. Can someone help me with the registration number of this aircraft?
Saturday, April 22: Flight No. CA1403 PEK-KMG (Beijing-Kunming) Air China 767-200 B2554
This flight was okay. We didn't have a window, so we had extra leg room. The flight attendants were pretty mean, and the food was bad. Getting the western meal, I hoped for American fooid, but I got an omlette and sausage. The muffin was good. It was very bumpy and a copilot (I don't know if THE copilot) was in the cabin except for takeoff and landing. HMM... my ears didn't hurt on landing because we landed from a low altitude to a high altitude. We disembarked the aircraft off steps. I guess Kunming can't handle a 767-200...
Sunday, April 23: Flight No. 3Q4041 KMG-DLI (Kunming-Dali) China Yunnan Ailrines 737-700 B2639
THis flight was very nice. IT was my first flight on a Next Generation 737. The flight was only :45, so I watched the television screen mapping our flight cource, information, and time left. THey passed out little elephant key chains, that would never happen in America! Awesome! We were the only plane in Dali.
I'll tell you the rest of my flights at lunch... SEE YA!
