What a fantastic terminal building. Now that it is in use, it looks even better. Because it does now what it is supposed to do! I hope to be able to visit this one soon, probably (sadly enough) this will not happen this year.

Congrats to China and all the airlines making use of this fantastic building.

Now lets get on with the construction!
The Chinese should have more freedom of speech, and that includes the chance to refute the false claims made by the western media against China.

Check out the terminal in Google Earth, looks so cool now its complete.
Btw. are those toll gates arround the new terminal? China must be a bit short on cash after building it.

All expressways are tolled in China, except for inner urban ones, you have to get money somewhere! (china tolls are quite expensive, btw)

Came in twice in new T3 for a connection flight (once Hong Kong, once Frankfurt). The airport Terminal is quite impressive, there are many shops. Not acceptable, that Pizza Hut outlet didnīt accept credit card! Got nice food and drinks in the central hall above the tram for the Terminal. Very friendly staff at customs but due to a delay on flight from Frankfurt via Bejing to Hong Kong the staff at Beijing was not able to handle the new tickets for the next flight quickly enough. So we missed that flight as well and had to wait in total for 4 hours. Big question was on same flight, why our plane parked not directly at terminal but outside and we had to take the bus to terminal. It was easy to see, that about 90% of the gates directly at the terminal was not occupied. Traffic at terminal was at both visits not much. Restrooms were clean (much cleaner than at Frankfurt).

simple because it is not scheduled to park at the gate...it missed the "gate" parking window.
