Annnnd…drum roll…. it’s no longer a direct flight from New York to Beijing!!!!
That’s right folks! we’ll be stopping in San Fran. What does this mean for travel times?
Instead of a comfortable 17 hours of travel, I get to travel for 26 hours!!
I leave at 4AM EST Thursday from the HoR. I arrive at 6PM China time on Friday. That’s 6AM EST.
The good news is that we get to rest for a full day in Beijing before heading onward to our final destination.
