Air China From IAH
 
Has anyone heard or read any reports on the early performance of the Air China IAH<>PEK route? It started up a month and a half ago, but I have not seen any performance information. Full flights? Good service?

I just did JFK-IAH-PEK two weeks ago, the service is pretty standard. better than UA for sure. I would say service is improving over the last few years comparing to my last flight from PEK-SFO on CA. Biz cabin is almost full, have no idea on econ. Food is typical Chinese food plus a western choice, good if you appreciate chinese food. forget about the western choice. Limited selection of movies, music, tv shows on AVOD. Im not sure which cabin you'll fly, but overall I think it's good given CA's bad reputation in the past.

I will be in the F cabin, so I am not too worried. I have not flown on a Chinese Airline in 8 years, but it appears they have improved quite a bit. Asian competition is pretty tough.
