Southern China Air...new A380 aircraft from USA (Los Angeles)


fundudewithatude

Recommended Posts

  About 2 years ago I took this airline from Los Angeles and I said no way in HELL will I ever do that again. As I searched for a flight, they came up with the perfect time with a very short layover. To my disappointment, it was good ol' Southern China Air. I looked on the equipment list and I could not believe my eyes- They replaced their very old Boeing plane on this route with a nice brand new A380!

 

 So if you are looking for a real bargain with a great plane, this is the way to go. $1185 round trip is not bad at all

Take upper deck.

+1

 

Took this flight in Feb....imagine the toilets in the lower deck with over 300 Chinese passengers. On the return flight, requested upper deck when checking in at BKK. It made all the difference in the world.

Yea, well... It's still China service and 400+ Chinese people and you, so for me, no thanks at any price.

 

But that's just me... Too many CS flights for one lifetime!

I'm taking this flight in November, do they ever bump you from the upper deck down to the lower deck? I want the upper deck but my worse fear is getting bumped down to a middle seat because they make the upper deck all business class. Do they ever do this for this flight?

Please tell us about your experience after your trip.

 

My experiences w CS have all been horrible... But those were all flights in SEA. Will be interesting to see how you fare.

 

 

 

I'd expect the worst, and, hopefully, you will be surprised. :)

  Ok, I have arrived here in BKK and I have to say the flight was very nice. The airplane is new, it had plenty of online movies and entertainment packages and as flying goes.....it was just fine.

 

  I really don't see the big deal with Chinese people on an airplane though. You are coming to Asia and you prefer to be on a plane with non Asian people? I find that strange to say the least.

 

  Food was OK and the seat room on the A380 was decent. I did not find anything to really complain about....

I don't mind Asians.....it's the mainland Chinese.

My is not a typical connection as I had something I wanted to accomplish during my layover at CAN.

 

So I actually left the terminate / immigration area (went through immigration and security) for about an hour to take some pictures for my future trip planning. :-)

 

Then went through immigration and security again to get back into the terminal area.

Yep, I have taken this flight with the new plane. Great plane.  Service is still the same. Not great, not bad but the cost for this flight is perfect.  I took this same flight in May 2014 for $775 (Round trip LAX/BKK).

 

However the price, flight times, and total travel time is hard to beat.

 

I am looking at prices now to go back in November 2014 and it is around $904.

Okay so were are getting a few thumbs up for some airline called Southern China Airline.

 

I've heard mostly bad about China Southern Airline but based on the comments here, I might have to give that one a try.

I took the A380 from tokyo to bkk on thai air ways and the plane was brand new and empty.

there was a wifi onboard (pay). I tried it and managed to read/send email. Funny.

Easy and straight forward both times....just don't buy coffee because it is around $14 USD

regular folks also sit on top (at least for China Southern's A380)

I had an economy seat on the upper deck for the return flight to LAX...it was actually quite nice and the cute stewardess was generous with the wine

Someone told me they where weird with the booze. They offer drink service the entire flight? Booze makes the flight so much better !!

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
