Hinan has a good value and covers 2 main destination in China for Manchester travelers. I flue from Manchester to Shanghai through Beijing. Just it would be better if we can give our luggage to the airline in manchester and collect that in shanghai, instead of running like headless chicken between terminal 1 & 2 in Beijing with carrying full loads. We could be a transfer passenger in Beijing and have our passport check in Shanghai.

Travel with Hainan regularly, very good value. Someone needs to instruct them that you don't serve spirits in the same volume as wine and vica versa!
