Flight Number: CZ3526
Flight duration: 2 hours 10 minutes
Class: Economy Class
Aircraft type: Airbus A321
Punctuality of the flight:
The flight departed on time and landed on time.
Any baggage issues:
No issues- the bags arrived on time and in one piece.
Comments on the check-in staff and any issues:
No check in issues. Everything went perfectly smoothly at Hongqiao Airport. I find the operations at Hongqiao much more efficient than those at Pudong Airport. Its not that busy, which makes it easy for the speedy whisk through security and onto the departure gates.
Comments regarding the pre-meal service:
Just drinks (non-alcoholic), and including tea and coffee.
Comments regarding the first meal:
The dinner box contained the following edible items: salted & peppered fish cutlet (not sure which fish it was), a plain and boring bun, a few pieces of fresh cherry tomatoes, and a packet containing corn crisps. The main hot dish contained a very generous portion of healthy chicken meatballs and rice. The food did not look edible, but in saying this I was impressed with the taste of the chicken meatballs.
Comments regarding the drinks service:
A second round of drinks were offered after the meal. No alcohol was available on this flight, but plenty of milk, coffee and tea.
Comments on the interior of the aircraft (including seat comfort):
China Southern Airlines have a 3-3 configuration on their Airbus A321 planes. The plane was clean and the toilets were clean too. It was not full at all. Not bad a flight after all. The crew were friendly too.
Overall rating 1-10 (worst-best): 8
About Airline PR
This is a special section on Airline Branding, and Airline Public Relations written by me on all the flights I have been fortunate enough to have been on. These are not records taken from somewhere else, but are actual flights I have been on. Most of the flight trips are officially sponsored by the airline companies in order to promote their certain routes, and aircraft. Airline promotion and PR related work in the aviation industry is one of my expertise.
