Flying Shanghai to Xiamen with Spring and it is delayed... again.
Asked at the service counter the estimated departure, told me 'no time', but sometime 'jian tian'.

Seriously every other inland flight is delayed in China!?!

China’s airports if not the worst should be one of the most in the world when it comes to punctuality. You have to figure out why a flight’s been cancelled or delayed, and it is always frustrating to deal with the flight company.  Anyone travelling in China is advised to use high speed rail and not air flights.

I was going to give you the same piece of advice but eloquent Cecilia beats me to it.

Yes, take the High Speed Train -- it is punctual and really fast.

The airlines' lack of punctuality is supposed to give a boost to the High Speed Train when the latter was first launched -- but the newcomer is now in the driver's seat when it comes to short- to medium-distance traveling.

Don't take an airplane if you can because of the safety factor -- if a plane has an accident you die, while if the HST has an accident you still have a chance to live.



You ask a good question, and the answer must have been unexpected.
