"For Asian flight highly recommended in matter of price/service value"
"Arrive at the airport early and eat beforehand if you don't like Chinese takeaway."
"Transfer in Beijing, much better than previous trip. KFC and Pizza Hut - limited menu choice, priced as in US."
"If you're tall, definitely look for a seat with extra leg room. Otherwise it can be tight."
"If possible try to upgrade your seat once on the plane it costs far less"
