Thank you for a nice TR and for bringing back good memories.

Thank you for the TR. Been flying with China Southern from AMS to PEK and CAN for the last 3 years (twice or thrice a year) and can say they are much better than Air China and China Eastern. Transferring in CAN is a breeze whereas in PEK you must re-check regardless of whom you connect with (PEK has...

Re: Narrowbodies from Korea to the UK, P.5, Astana-Minsk-Gatwick, Belavia Boeing 737-800/Boeing 737-500

Hi there, was waiting for the conclusion to your TR's! Thank you. Having flown Belavia in Jan from Zhukovsky to Minsk I must say that they are doing very well considering their fleet size and being generally a young airline. Hope you have a chance to sample them again perhaps from Manchester to Minsk!

Re: Hainan: six legs from Israel to Oz plus travel disaster

Really good post! I thoroughly enjoyed the read tbh. Hainan and China Southern are moving in the right direction however it will take sometime for them to get the balance between hard and soft product. Hope this does not discourage you to fly Hainan or other Chinese Airlines in the future.
