    The entire interior came from western suppliers.

    He mentions the low cruising level. Welcome to China, Land of Under-achievers!
    Hands-down the worst in ATC efficiency anywhere in the world. Even in western China near Chengdu where traffic is not dense, ATC won't let anyone climb to an efficient cruise level. Please maintain Right Offset 3, 6, 10, 15 miles so your tag doesn't drop off the radar scope from opposite direction traffic. Want to change altitudes because of turbulence? Please Stand-by! A long time. You are 500 miles from destination? Please begin descent to FL240.... Turbulence at FL240? Suck it up.....

    I guess in China it's not all about your "Comfort and Safety" as they used to say in the cabin announcements in the 70's and 80's Damn that thing looks like a DC-9 or Boeing 717 down to the 5 across cabin width. Anybody check the old archives at Boeing for some missing design drawings?

    Feinstein's Chinese driver for 20 years probably has them.
