Do not hold me to this, but I flew Biz on the 747-400 on the JFK
route and remember being surprised to see DC powerports.
The food and service on the flight was horrible. The only flight attendant who spoke english was the purser. I found this especially surprising since during my time in china, that almost all of the domestic flight attendants i encountered spoke fantastic english. As for the food, it was pretty mediocre and pretty simple. I would compare it to domestic legacy carrier first class. The AVOD was pitiful, not a single new release movie and an outdated movie guide so i had to no idea what the movies showing were.
The upside is that the seat is quite elegant and upon arrival in PEK
you get a private van to baggage claim, WELL ahead of the rest of the passengers.
From now on I will take CX
and take Dragonair to the mainland. I had fanstastic experiences on both of these airlines.
