Happy to fly China Southern airlines anytime

This was my first time flying with China Southern Airlines and I was most impressed with the experience. I picked the flights as they were the most affordable and I also thought, why not, I’ve been hearing a lot about China this year so it’s probably time to go.

The flights at Christmas time were approximately $1500 (AUD) which is almost unheard of for Australia to UK return – with the Christmas period being one of the most expensive times to travel. I did leave before December 1st which helps. I also included a 2 day stopover on my way back to give me a chance to see the city.

 

The check in was easy and they gave me the option to check my bags right the way through – which meant no hassle during my stopover in Guangzhou for the night.

The seats were incredibly roomy and I was very happy with the cleanliness and look of the cabin. The in-flight entertainment system, which I was told wouldn’t be included, was as good as any other airline if not better in some ways and I was kept busy for all of my 10 hour flight to China. The food options were tasty and had a western and Asian selection- the only thing I would say is I would like ice for my drinks.

 

The service was not great – in terms of friendliness, they were a tad abrupt. However, they were prompt and came quickly when I rang the bell and regularly walked around with water to top up our glasses.

The toilets were unique with an automated seat down and flushing functionality- not important but fascinating.

 

All in all, after two flights, including a 10 hour and 12 hour, I was very comfortable and happy. I most certainly will be looking at this option for future Europe adventures.

Airlines I’ve Flown

As I was on a flight the other day, I started to recount the airlines I had flown in the past. Since I had been on approx 120 flights or more at last count, I must have also flown a fair few airlines.

So I decided I would count and name them to the best of my memory, and I will soon rate and give my Top 5 best/worst!
