Each airline will change its aircraft type operating according to the actual number of passengers and its flight operations status as well. This morning I take the early morning flight HU1737 set to take off at 7:50am and arrive at Xian at 9:50am if the flight is on time. This Beijing Xian flight HU1737 takes withing 2 hours and operated by Hainan Airlines.
Yesterday I went to Hainan Airlines’ official web site and had my Beijing Xian flight checked online to fix my seatinng and got my boarding card. Haihan Airline usese the Terminal 1 of Beijing Capital Airport. So most of the airplanes run by Hainan Airlines take off and land at Terminal 1.
People are waiting for boarding at the Gate A17 for the Beijing Xian flight HU1737.
Some passengers are still seated, chatting and joking…
There is a store on the floor where Gate A17 is located. The stores mainly offer various kinds of stuff with snacks, water, books and etc.
The airport shuttle bus takes us from the Gate A17 to somewhere below the plane.
To my pleasant surprise, Today’s pick from Hainan Airlines is Air Bus 340 – 600, a huge passenger plane for the mid-rang domestic flight Beijing to Xian.
