RE: Air China First Class. Beijing-Guilin Via Xi’an

Nice report. Wow - the smog in Xi'an looks apocalyptic, and Beijing not much better.

I was in Guilin and Yangshuo last October - yes to whoever asked, the Yangshuo water show ('Impression Sanjie Liu") is still playing and still wonderful.

Nice report. Allowing for the fact that I don't fly first class on United (and have given up trying to redeem my upgrade coupons), I am still stunned that your dinner choice on a cross-country flight was a salad or turkey wrap served on in a plastic tray. That's pathetic. I also really like that you...

Congratulations, glad that you did what you wanted to do, and I'm glad that FIs like Bob still exist. Looking at the pics of the 172 (all very good shots, presumably by a friend), it seems very funny to me that most if not all of the same basic flight principles apply to that plane and to the A380.
