They are the only carrier to offer First Class suites on the Shanghai route. Beyond Shanghai, they fly to over 200 destinations around the world.

The US to Shanghai flights are done in newish 777-300ER aircraft with a separate First Class cabin. There are six enclosed First Class suites and the two center suites can be combined to form a double suite with a double bed. The seats are huge and soft leather and there’s a 24″ LED screen for entertainment. Food and wine is excellent and limo service to and from the airport is included in most major cities.

Here’s a tour of Suite 1A aboard a flight from Shanghai to Los Angeles.
