Hi, a few quick questions. My mom and I are going to China next month. While in China, our 4 domestic flights will be on Air China in economy. We are both Star Alliance Gold-equivalent (she thru Miles and More, me thru United). I know we can check in at the business counter, but had a couple of other questions:
- Can we use the business lounge before the flights? Or is that only for Air China's own FF Gold pax?
- The Air China web site is a little confusing about baggage. I know we are normally allowed one piece of 20 kgs each in economy. What is the extra baggage allowance - is it by weight or piece?
- Lastly, is there any chance of our getting upgraded? I usually get upgraded on US domestic flights about 50% of the time, but is that something Air China would keep for its own FF Gold members? To be clear, we are NOT expecting any upgrades, but it sure would be nice if it happened :-)
Thanks! And if anyone has traveled Air China domestic recently, do please share your experiences. Our flights are all quite short - 2 hrs or less. Is there food? Personal TV's? Are the seats comfy?
