Today, I flew CA 1518 from SHA-PEK. During the welcoming announcement, the stewardess stated she would like to welcome on board the 194 *G passengers on today"s flight. It was a full flight, about 311 on a A333, but I thought to myself that the number was quite high. I asked the stewardess during the meal service and she said it was true.
Granted that it is a Friday and the SHA-PEK is a major route. A lot of people were bumped up to the next class, including my wife. I was traveling on an award ticket so I was at the back of the bus.
anyone have any other experience with a large amount of passengers with a higher status?
