Nice pics. I took advantage of their CPH-ZRH-PEK offer and booked a roundtrip in C for 1.950 USD later this year.

Going to Copenhagen (CPH)? Don't miss the tips for the Alternative Copenhagen

I'm flying on this route later in March. I see that they have changed equipment to A343.

Don't they change back to A330 at some point in the future? In any event excellent to have LX as a choice now for Europe from Star/M&M. We now have flights within the integrated M&M group from:
LH
LX
OS
and soon to be LO (I think end of March IIRC).

LX flight from PEK was very efficient in C. Of note the flight leaves 06:45 at which time there are very few flights so quite quick through the immigration and formalities! So arrival 1 hour before departure is plenty of time even with access to the lounge. Of note there was no HON service on the outbound. if you need a hotel the Hilton at the airport is a 5 minute complimentary shuttle ride away.

The HON service at Beijing Capital is quite useless anyway- they escort you on the train to the general lineup for passport control and then say goodbye. I decline it now as it is not worth waiting for- I know how to get to the train.
