This article reviews the worst on time performance for airports around the world and China is on top. My experience in China and Beijing has been great. The only time my flights were delayed was because of the weather which happens with all airports. Actually our last trip to China we arrived 30 minutes early on the red eye flight and we had to wait for a gate to open up. China may be have the worst time but I would suggest you arrive at your gate early because most of the flights I was on they boarded fast and the doors closed early. There are not too many organized lines to board the plane but everyone moves fast and it is efficient, I called this organized chaos. Again with standing in lines in China stand your ground and nudge to keep people from cutting in front of you.
Passionate for everything related to China travel.
