I'm trying to find some **recent** information on Air China. We are scheduled to fly on their new Boeing 777-300ER in "Forbidden Pavillion" class which is their version of first class nonstop from PEK to SFO in August. That said, most of what I'm finding online people are saying they wouldn't put their worst enemy on Air China. That aircraft and its version of "Forbidden Pavillion" are pretty new so I'm just wondering if anyone has recent experience with it specifically and if it's a dramatic improvement from the horror stories I've read of older Air China. It seems like they are trying to turn things around but I really don't want to feel like I'm flying Southwest Airlines in a fancier seat for 12 hours. Nothing against Southwest, they are great for what they are but I wouldn't want to be stuck on them for 12 hours either!
I did find a rather glowing review of business class on the Boeing 777-300ER but just curious if anyone has had an experience recently "up front". Thanks!
