We were waiting for 1 hr to get luggage, looks like too long

All good but baggage coming a day late. I was 4 hours before flight at Beijing airport checking in so don’t understand how it could have not gotten on the plane. Hopefully it arrives as planned on tomorrow’s flight to San Francisco from Beijing.

The re-check bag system was confusing and I had to approach at least 4 different staff members, it took over an hour because I waited in a wrong line. I would suggest staff actually guide people who ask questions rather than just point to a general direction with a mob of people standing around. I also think their should be more signs or staff to direct people. When I first arrived it was very clear where the re-check bag station was, but it was closed. Perhaps having staff there to give directions would have helped. I had a 4 hr lay over so not too much of an issue, but if I had only 1-2 hrs I would have been angry and stressed.

Great service

Unfortunately no seat assignments unless you pay an additional $20 fee per segment. You may checkin online 24 hours before the flight but only if you have a mainline China telephone number.

I like the newer plane, well designed to have a lot of functional features. The hallway is a bit small and opening to the business suite seat is small though. The food on the plane needs improvement. I tried both business class beef and chicken and they are both too tough to chew. I couldn't finish my meal. The salad served were frozen and not edible. But other than that, the flight was pretty enjoyable.
