I live in Shanghai and I travel domestic in China (both Y and F) about three times a week on average, mostly on MU
, but on occasion on CA
, and very rarely on H0.
is probably the better among the three major carriers (with the assumption that FM
is now fully part of MU
), and this is probably because they belong to Star Alliance. I would say CZ
come in second and MU
last. Every time I fly MU
I fly in F, but generally they have the old seats, which are not that comfortable, the "meals" are probably equally to BOB in Y on airlines in the US. CA
meals in Y (I fly Y+ on CZ
, the only airline in China to have Y+) and they're slightly better than MU
, but not that much greater.
I would say MU
seems to experience much more delays than CA
, but then to be fair, that is because during the Shanghai Expo there was a huge increase in the number of pax / flights through PVG
, and on average I experienced delays of 1.5 hours due to "traffic control."
The IFE on domestic airlines will be some travel show or some other variety show in Mandarin. The inflight mag is also in Mandarin only.
If you have any other specific questions, please go ahead and ask. As I stated above, I travel domestic within China about 3 times a week and have been doing so for the past 6 - 9 months.
