After trying out the Air China First Class from Houston to Panama City, here comes Air China in Economy Class on both regional and short haul flight.
My recently concluded family trip to Fukuoka was on Air China via Beijing. At only $2.8k for 6 person, this is an excellent price as the price for Singapore Airlines for the same date came up to $9.2k! Top up another $400 and you can get yourself on Air China Business class which frankly is not a bad deal.

This is a very new route that was launched only in April 2019. Twice a week, Air China would have a 5th freedom flight from Houston to Panama City operated on a Boeing 777-300ER. The other options would be United Airlines which uses a Boeing 737. Between an international long-haul First Class vs a domestic USA First Class, the choice if very obvious.
Air China being part of Star Alliance can be redeemed using Krisflyer miles (and it can be searched directly from Singapore Airlines website). The miles required on First Class is 40,000 miles per person while Business Class requires 30,000 miles (it has since been devalued to 46,000 and 34,500 miles respectively).
So how did the flight go?

My recently concluded TTOTY was a good break – and now its time to pen my thoughts.

Singapore Airlines does not have a Krisflyer lounge in Shanghai which is a tad surprising considering that SQ flies 4 daily flights to PVG, so First Class or Suite passengers are invited to use the No.71 Air China First Class Lounge located near gate D71, but on the second floor where there are other cafes and restaurants located.
