Fast and easy check in. I have never seen a plane load and everyone seated so quickly. Flight was smooth. Service was good and food was ok. Flight attendants were friendly. Uniforms and appearance was much neater and tidier than North American crews.

I am new to the Chinese air industry but found this to be a decent airline choice for this flight. Checkin was fairly easy except they screen (Xray) your bag AGAIN at checkin and you have to wait until they give you the OK. One of our bags had to be rescreened but nothing was found.

Anyways, the first thing I noticed when I sat down in my seat was the fact that the seat bag that contains the magazines was filled with trash. Didn't bother to clean it out? Other than...
