We have a international flight from Shanghai to Bangkok that departs at 5:30 pm. We will be flying into Shangahi from Nanchang on either Air China or China Eastern. Our two options on domestic flights are one that gets into Shanghai at 9:30 am on the same day as our Bangkok flight or 5:00 pm the day before.
I would rather take the domestic flight that gets in to Shanghai on the same day as our departing international flight, but am not sure how reliable domestic flights are. Should I be worried that it could be very delayed or cancelled? Does anyone have insight on this?
