Easy connection, limited services, luggage arrived late
After a long CDG-CAN flight in a B777-200 with an aging cabin but a nice in-flight service, we arrived in Canton a little ahead of time.
The one-hour-and-twenty-five-minute connection at CAN was easy. A dedicated international connection service is clearly indicated and the CZ crew quickly checks your travel documents before letting you through to the international boarding room.
The CAN airport is modern, practical, and clean. There are many duty-free stores, as usual. They seemed to be building extensions.
The flight to BKK was on a fairly new B737-800. Legroom and cleanliness were normal.
The meal wasn’t horrible, but wasn’t really exceptional for that of an economy class.
The Chinese cabin crew was not very communicative, but they were good. The pilots didn’t communicate with the passengers.
Arrival in BKK was again ahead of schedule.
The biggest problem: the luggage didn’t arrive.
One bag stayed in CDG and the other vanished into thin air. They sent them to our hotel in 24 hours, though.
Of course, we had to spend money on some essentials and I am filing a complaint with CZ. Let’s see what happens.
