Cathay Dragon was on this flight, but this was MIAT's flight. Did not advance online check in but still got decent seats. Standard seats ok, no screen just like low cost carriers. Food was ok for a under 4hrs flight.

Flying direct to Bangkok from Ulaanbaatar was a real joy when compared to changing planes in Beijing. The service was excellent and the food was very edible (Air China take note).
