Here is the overview for this report: All in Business, All for $200 And 30,000 US AIR Miles
In many places around the world 5PM means happy hour. In Air China’s Business Class Lounge Shanghai 5PM is chow time. It is a spectacle worth seeing. First the chefs bring out some nonsense salad that goes untouched by the international crowd of wolves. Then the fried spring rolls are offered as a sacrifice to the starving patrons. These are quickly devoured. An eternity later the clock strikes 5PM and the chefs bring out the pastas, the beef and broccoli, the fried rice, and whatever else they could fix together to fend off the starving frequent fliers.
Shamelessly everyone, myself included, goes back for seconds, thirds, and many more rounds, only stopping because our gates are called.
The Wi-Fi works terribly and the alcohol selection is mediocre but the fatties do not seem to care so long as we are well fed.
