After a few rather disappointing and very average flight experiences with China Eastern Airlines they finally put a smile on my face. I was on the very first flight on their brand new Airbus A350 from Shanghai to Beijing. The new Business Class is a great leap forward for the Shanghai based carrier. It even comes with 4 First Class suites and makes it only the second airline to offer that class on an A350. The other airline is infamous Malaysia Airlines. The new flagship will be deployed to Frankfurt, Sydney, Amsterdam and Vancouver from Shanghai.

Very similar to Malaysia Airlines 350 or China Southern Airlines 787 this airplane also features a First Class. Unlike those other too, First Class isn't separated from the Business Class cabin. You have 4 seats in total which also feature a door and a divider for full privacy.
