| Hong Kong to Ningbo. Checking in at the counter wasn't the most pleasant thing of this flight, but after that it got much better. Boarding was delayed for half an hour which wasn't a major surprise, most flight departing for China are delayed and 30 minutes is considered little. I was the first to board in the Economy class section, I was greeted with a nice mile and a good evening, they checked my boarding pass and escorted me to my seat (they didn't even do that when I was flying business to London), which was a pleasant surprise. After that boarding started getting chaotic, it was loud, people were shouting across the aisles, but the crew seemed handle everything properly, asking the passengers to sit down on their seats and not blocking the aisle. I needed the loo halfway through boarding and it took me about 2 minutes to get from the middle of the plane to the toilets at the end, the crew kindly informed that there isn't any running water from the taps yet and asked if some hand sanitiser and an antiseptic towel would be fine. Takeoff was smooth as any cathay flight is, the meal was fine, ice cream was offered as a dessert option which was surprising for a short 2 hour flight. The Flight attendants did their job smoothly and smiled whenever I asked for something like they genuinely enjoyed their jobs. The seats were what Cathay Pacific, Cathay Dragon's partner airline, uses on their long-haul planes and featured very good padding and also a personal AVOD system which was responsive and featured enough selections to keep me entertained for this flight.
