United passengers revolt after stranded for 3 days in China
(WCARN.com/ABC News, July 16)


Quote:
A United Airlines flight from Shanghai, China, to New Jersey should have taken just 13 hours, but it took some folks three days to make that trip, after a firestorm of protests, threats, even violence.

United Flight 87 was scheduled to leave Shanghai Wednesday and bring 225 passengers to Newark Airport in New Jersey. The flight didn't land until Saturday morning after three days of cancellations, causing tense moments between passengers and United Airlines. "You get the runaround by these airlines," said passenger Steve Borowka.

"You're so powerless, just so humiliated and frustrated and you get so upset." The flight was canceled twice because of maintenance on the Boeing 777, and a third delay came because the flight crew had been on duty too long. As passengers grew frustrated by miscommunications, tempers boiled over and a fist fight broke out.

Shanghai opens charter flight to Moscow
(China Economic, July 19)

Quote:
A tourist charter flight with almost 200 passengers departed Shanghai for Moscow Wednesday as local Chinese authorities hope to promote tourism exchanges under the agreement reached by the two countries' leaders.

The group of tourists, headed by Shanghai's Vice Mayor Zhao Wen, will visit Moscow and St. Petersburg over the next six days and attend a string of activities jointly held by the China National Tourism Administration and Russian tourism authorities. It is the first tourist charter flight Shanghai has dispatched to Russia in the "Tourism Year of Russia."

In October last year, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and then Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin agreed in Beijing that the two countries would hold "Tourism Year of Russia" in China in 2012 and the "Tourism Year of China" in Russia in 2013. More than 200 events are scheduled to be held during the "Tourism Year of Russia."

Man gets 14 months for airport bomb threat
Shanghai Daily
Jul 31, 2012

AN 18-year-old man who, on a dare, phoned in a demand for 1 million yuan (US$156,787) by claiming he had planted a bomb on an Air China flight at the Pudong International Airport in April was sentenced to 14 months in prison yesterday.

Prosecutors said the convict, surnamed Pu, called the airport hotline about 6pm on April 27, claiming he was an al-Qaida terrorist and threatening to detonate a bomb on flight CA406. The flight was ready to take off for Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province.

Pu also demanded the airport to transfer 1 million yuan into his bank account in two hours, prosecutors said.

The plane was delayed for nearly five hours and no bomb was found.

Pu said a netizen gave him the airport number and dared him to call in a threat.

Airports busy to send off stranded travelers
Shanghai Daily
2012-8-9 20:26:06

SHANGHAI'S air traffic returned to normal today as typhoon Haikui weakened to a tropical storm and headed inland, but there have been some flight delays.

More than 2,000 passengers who were stranded at the city's Pudong and Hongqiao airports left by noon, officials said.

The Pudong airport will handle 597 arriving flights and 575 departing flights today, while the numbers are 362 and 355 for the Hongqiao airport.

"Flight delays are expected to continue throughout the day and the two airports will see large crowds of passengers," the airport authority said today.

Major domestic airlines added flights to send off stranded passengers. China Eastern and Shanghai airlines both increased their number of flights.

Wide-body passenger planes bump at Pudong International
Shanghai Daily
Aug 10, 2012

A TAXIING Malaysia Airlines passenger plane bumped the tail of a China Eastern Airlines plane waiting on the taxiway at Pudong International Airport yesterday afternoon. No one was injured.

China Eastern flight MU583 from Shanghai to Los Angeles was waiting to take off about 4:30pm when a wing of the Malaysia Airlines plane bumped the left elevator on the tail of the Chinese plane, the China Eastern said later yesterday.

The top of the wing of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 was broken off and hung on the tail of the China Eastern Airbus 340-600, according to pictures posted by passengers on the Internet. Both planes are wide-body passenger aircraft.

"It is like a sudden earthquake," said a passenger surnamed Chai on the China Eastern plane.

He said the plane was shook strongly when it was bumped and the shaking was more severe in the front of the plane.

The Shanghai-based airline dispatched another plane for the flight and moved the damaged plane for inspections and repair, China Eastern said. The China Eastern flight was due to take off at 3pm but had yet to take off as of 9pm yesterday.

The East China Regional Administration of the Civil Aviation Administration of China has sent a team to investigate, an official said. The operation of other flights at the airport was not affected.

Malaysia Airlines' flight MH389 was heading to Kuala Lumpur. The company could not be reached for comment.

A civil aviation expert said the bump is likely to have happened at the beginning of the taxiway, when the Malaysia Airlines plane was turning around. He said the damage to either plane wound not be severe.

"The pilot of either plane could have misunderstood the order from the air traffic controller and turned into the wrong taxiway," a local pilot told Shanghai Daily yesterday. He said the incident is rare.

Locals shown behind the scenes at airline's base
Shanghai Daily
Aug 12, 2012

Local families were given a glimpse behind the scenes at China Eastern Airlines yesterday, when the airline invited members of the public to its base at Hongqiao International Airport.

The 10 Shanghai families were among 100 from across China given a tour - the first time a Chinese airline has done this.

Visitors, who were selected from applicants on the airline's microblog, were invited to view flight attendant training, in-flight meals being made and aircraft maintenance.

Also included in the visit was an emergency landing drill, while children dressed as attendants to serve food in a mock-up cabin.

"We hope such visits enhance mutual understanding and help us improve services," said Shen Xiaosheng, a publicity official for the Shanghai-based airline.

In the past, carriers had expressed security and operational concerns about visits.

China Eastern said it will continue inviting families to visit its Shanghai base.

Pudong airport to get satellite terminal
(Shanghai Daily, Aug. 15)

Quote:
SHANGHAI will build a new satellite terminal at the Pudong International Airport by 2015, the city's top planning body said yesterday.

The new building, to be named as S1 Terminal, will allow aircraft to park around its entire circumference, said the Civil Aviation Development Outline 2011-2015 issued by the Shanghai Municipal Development and Reform Commission.

The city plans to expand the capacity of its two airports, the other being Hongqiao International Airport, to handle an estimated annual traffic of 100 million passengers and 5.5 million tons of cargos in 2015, when they will be among the world's busiest air hubs.

Maybe we can revisit the original plan for the entire Pudong Airport project so we can figure out where...

Sightseeing helicopters may start flying from hotel helipad on Bund
Shanghai Daily
Aug 14, 2012

CHINA'S civil aviation regulator is working on a plan to allow a Shanghai hotel to operate helicopters to pick up and offer sightseeing services to its customers in the city's Bund area, the regulator said yesterday.

The Shanghai Peninsula Hotels plans to build a helipad on its hotel building in the Bund to launch the same kind of helicopter service that has been popular at its Hong Kong branch, the hotel confirmed yesterday.

"We have begun investigating the plan, which must be in accord with both the civil aviation rules and safety considerations," said Shen Zejiang, director of the East China Regional Administration of the Civil Aviation Administration of China.

Shen has met with Michael Kadoorie, chairman of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Hotels, parent company of The Peninsula Hotels, in Shanghai regarding the possibility of the service and location of the helipad.

"There are some difficulties with the plan mainly on air traffic control policies," an official with the bureau told Shanghai Daily yesterday.

The east China bureau also has to apply to the Civil Aviation Administration of China for final approval, he said.

China has not opened low-altitude air traffic to the public on the mainland. That means the hotel would have to apply to the regulator each time it wanted to land or take off - which in each case could take several days for approval.

The hotel in the Bund area is near many high-rises and is covered by strict noise controls, so winning permission to use the helicopter could be very complicated, an official with a domestic business jet company said.

Shanghai has no business that operates helicopters and mainly uses helicopters on police patrols, medical assistance and rescue.

The city has a heliport, the Gaodong Airport, which is China's first helicopter base for sea rescue, close to Pudong International Airport.

Ruijin Hospital also has a helipad on top of its building to receive patients in critical condition. The city police deploys helicopters to monitor traffic on highways, providing quicker solutions to congestion and hazards on the highways.

A civil aviation expert said if the plan is approved in Shanghai, the Peninsula Hotels might copy the operational model of its Hong Kong hotel that has been proved successful.

Hong Kong Peninsula Hotels operates helicopter tours that cost HK$1,388 (US$179) per person, providing a bird's eye view of Victoria Harbor and a brunch at the hotel.

Real ID required for free airport Wi-Fi
Shanghai Daily
Aug 22, 2012

TRAVELERS logging onto free Wi-Fi services at the city's two airports now need to use their real identification to register, Shanghai Airport Authority announced yesterday.

Cell phone users registered with a local mobile operator can go through the verification by logging in with the password automatically sent to the phone via text message, while roaming or foreign passengers can acquire a password by scanning identification documents such as passports and ID cards, according to the airport operator.

The policy is in line with the requirements of the Ministry of Public Security, said airport officials.

Airport staff also need to comply with the requirements while working at the terminals.

The name of the server at the Pudong International Airport is SPIA-guest and the one at the Hongqiao International Airport is SHA-Airport-FreeWifi.

Scanning machines for passports and ID cards are available at the airport terminals, said the operator.

The city is expanding the number of public places where locals can enjoy free Wi-Fi, with more railway stations, areas along the Bund and hospitals up and running by the end of the year. It's part of an effort to build a "wireless city."

Users can get access to free Wi-Fi two hours each day at about 300 places in the city this year, growing to 450 places in 2013.

Users can gain access to the service at i-Shanghai, according to officials with city information technology authority.

At Beijing's airport, you can insert your passport photo page into a machine that will scan your identity, then produce a receipt with the login and password. I would think the scan is to identify the passport number so you won't be able to continuously redeem a free login within a certain period of time.

United Airlines to fly Shanghai with Boeing 787

BEIJING, Aug. 26 (Xinhua) -- United Airlines announced Sunday that it will operate daily flights between Los Angeles and Shanghai with Boeing 787 Dreamliner planes for the first time.

The airline, a major U.S. passenger carrier, will start the service from March 31, 2013. It will also operate several other flights with the 787 from 2013, including flights between Denver and Tokyo, Los Angeles and Tokyo, as well as between Houston and Lagos, Nigeria.

Greg Hart, the airline's Senior Vice President of Network, said the 787 was the right aircraft for the routes because of its passenger-friendly amenities and sound operating economics.

The company has ordered a total of 55 Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft and will use them in more routes in the future, Hart said.

The first flight of a Boeing 787 to Chinese mainland was from Tokyo to Beijing, operated by Japan Airlines in May 2012.

Approaching typhoon grounds 70 flights at city airports
Shanghai Daily
2012-8-27

ABOUT 70 flights were cancelled at Shanghai's Pudong and Hongqiao airports early this afternoon as typhoon Bolaven was moving closer to the city, airport authorities said today.

Only 287 outbound flights and 223 inbound flights, about 30 percent of the total, managed to leave and enter the two airports as of 12:30pm.

China's major air carriers canceled their flights to and from Shanghai by midday. China Eastern and Shanghai Airlines cancelled nine flights to and from Japan and South Korea. Flights connecting other Yangtze Delta cities were also halted.

China Southern Airlines canceled all its 64 flights to and from Shanghai after 6pm.

"The typhoon is expected to influence airports in Shanghai, Hangzhou and Ningbo and impact flights to and from east China's Shandong Province tomorrow," the Guangzhou-based airline said.

Juneyao Airlines suspended 14 flights and diverted five flights to land at the Hongqiao airport instead of the Pudong airport.

Hainan Airlines also cancelled four flights between Shanghai and Beijing. The airline said some flight delays were expected after the typhoon lands around midnight tomorrow.

Airport staff will help passengers change their flights. Hainan Airlines said its passengers can either wait in the airports or change to other flights themselves.
