I did it when I was single n didn't give a damn about my life. 1. BOM-NYC (via Beijing) = Flight gets delayed by 22hrs in BOM. 2. Beijing = Landed 1 day late. Next flight 20hrs late due to Snow storm. Air China bus takes you 1hr away to a resort in a snow storm happening outside and you in shorts n flip-flops. Everyone is asked to share a room with some other person or pay. Bus gets lost enroute. 3.NYC - You reach 40hrs late and you luggage is somewhere. You decide.

I would never fly any Chinese airlines. My friends did to save couple of hundreds dollars and got stuck at airport plus layover are long. My recommendation fly Emirates and you would not be disappointed.

2 reasons quoted by my mom: 1. Seats (even lie flats) are small (in length) 2. Smell in the airplane is difficult and gets unbearable when food is served.

Lost my dads ticket enroute due to some computer issue. Was a nightmare to deal with. He got stranded in BOM and had to pay for a new ticket on a different airline.

Op: what’s your title?
