Beijing, China



Locals all excited seeing a little natural black (not through pollution), the crowd grew to some 70-80 people later on.




Bus was supposed to leave every 30 mins, but he decided to wait for the bus to fill up (close to an hour), when I decided to sit on the drivers seat, and gave him a 60 sec ultimatum before I drive off...

Nah, this guy approached me in china and told me: "You know that besides SuperFlyer, there is also some usa sport that uses this sign?"

He couldn't remember the name, so thanks  for that.

The Black fonts are one ticket (AC), and the Maroon ones, are a second ticket using CO:

LAS-SFO

SFO-ZRH

ZRH-BRU

Very long stop.

BRU-FRA

FRA-BKK

BKK-HAN

HAN-SIN

SIN-TPE

TPE-PVG

PVG-PEK



PEK-HGH

HGH-KMG

KMG-KWE

KWE-CTU

CTU-KWL

KWL-CTU

CTU-XNN

XNN-PEK


PEK-BKK

BKK-ZRH

ZRH-BRU


Very long stop, still busy with stop.

Likely route:

BRU-MUC

MUC-LAX
LAX-LAS

Considering Aeroplan only allows two stops which you took both in BRU, besides your destination, all stops where less then 24 hours?
