| Shanghai to Beijing. Chose this airline as it was cheaper and the timing gave me half a day more in Shanghai before moving on to Beijing. The aircraft type stated during booking was a Boeing 787-9, however, they changed this a few days before the flight to an A330. Luckily I had a point to check my flight booking consistently, as the seat that I selected (33A) was a premium economy seat on the 787, but an economy class seat on the A330- managed to move to seat 32A, which was a premium economy seat. The seat itself was identical to the economy class seat, with the exception of a different colour and generous legroom - I could stretch my legs fully without even touching the seat back in front of me! Before take-off, the cabin crew served drinks to the passengers in premium economy - a welcome service, but perhaps the standard of a premium economy class cabin, given that this was my first time flying premium economy. The flight was delayed-the boarding time was supposed to be 5:25pm, but the aircraft did not even come in until about 5:35pm! In the end, we landed in Beijing 30 minutes late. The cabin crew were quite friendly, giving out drinks quickly and clearing them fast enough. A meal was served on board, but I found it to be rather small compared to other full service carriers. The IFE screen, though touchscreen, was a bit small and the selection was quite limited. However, what I really found weird was the ban on all electronic devices - being used to being able to use smaller PEDs (with communication features turned off, of course) on other airlines, this was a surprise to me. Overall I found this flight to be enjoyable and given the fare, would choose them again.
