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.

Not one...

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).

This flight to Hongkong is very convenient to connect Cathay flight to India.They have code sharing agreement so the Hongkong Delhi flight boarding pass is given together with Ulaanbator-Hongkong flight.This helps in going straight to departure area.Miat has come a long way to provide good service.Keep it up!

Being the only direct flight available, and vowing never to fly via China ever again (look at my air china experience), MIAT was the only carrier available. From my understanding, they're definitely starting to modernize, however both my flights were on a narrow body 737 without any personal screen/vod.
