My experience was deluxe service all the way. Service on the 777-300ER out of JFK had only begun in August and everything had already been fine tuned for Business Class check-in. China Southern’s red carpet check-in had absolutely no wait, and I was met with friendly smiles as I checked my luggage to Guangzhou, China’s third largest city.
A China Southern hostess accompanied me and whisked me through security with hardly any delay. I was escorted to the executive lounge where I enjoyed a cocktail while I had a view of the plane I was soon to board. The premium lounge was located only a short distance from my departure gate, so I had plenty of time to relax and choose from the ample selection of snacks, soft drinks, cold beer and assorted spirits.
