    I've been in longhaul J. Seats were OK...service was mid-tier for an Asian carrier...not at level of NH, SQ or CX...but far better than American-flagged carriers.

    I'd have no hesitation to fly CA F.

    To be clear, do you mean long haul F or domestic F within China?

    My attitude it that it is still Air China. I would avoid it due to concerns about customer service if IROPs or other problems occur.

    Thanks, I've decided that we will be flying on Swiss to PEK onto SIN. Do we need a Visa if we are just connecting into PEK?

    China has complicated rules for transit without visa. You need to check the specifics for your nationality.

    I am US citizen. CO agent has informed that all we need is our passports and a return ticket home if we are just connecting through PEK.

    This sounds right, but you should still check as it depends on the airport as well as the length of your connection.

    Thanks, I've found this on US Department of Travel: TRANSITING CHINA: In general, if you are travelling through China en route to another country, you do not need a visa, as long as you stay in China less than 24 hours and do not leave the airport. If, however, you are a transit passenger and have more than one stopover in China, you must exit the transit lounge at the first stop to apply for an endorsement in your passport that permits multiple stops in China. As long as you have a ticket that continues on to an international destination, the endorsement should be routine. If Shanghai Pudong airport is your international transit point, you may stay in Shanghai for 48 hours if you have a valid passport, a visa for your destination, and an onward plane ticket. Make sure you get an endorsement stamp at the immigration desk before you leave the airport

    Does anyone have any recent experiences with CA in long haul F? I am looking at flying them from LAX-PEK-ICN then connecting via OZ to CEB. How are they at interlining? What kind of amenities if any can I expect up front ie. kit or pajamas? I believe the flight is to be operated by a 777.
