Oh I'm so tempted, the kid didn't want to go on the train to china, so i'd just fly alone & leave the wife & nipper at home & go by myself.
Any recommendations on where to stay and what to do? Probably looking at 7 to 10 days. 2 adults and a 3 year old. Thanks
Air China is Horrific !

Many folk around the world, hauled up & refused / questioned & delayed everyday, its what you accept "could" happen whenever you fly.

Care to give it context?
Several years ago I flew to Beijing return.
The onboard staff were surly and seats were very cramped with poor legroom.
On the return leg we were kept on the runway for 5 hrs due to the need for de-icing the plane as the Chinese had created a snow storm directly over the airport with one of their weather altering rockets. We were given 2 cups of lukewarm water and no food for the 5 hrs we were stuck on the tarmac and then had a 14 hr flight. They were the worst 19 hrs of my travelling life. After that experience everything else is easy but I’d personally never fly with this national airline again. Shocker !

That's it? That's the worst you've experienced in your "travelling life"? I'd be happy and think I've been pretty fortunate if that were me!

No I have lost luggage and all sorts but trust me Air China is the pits.
i have a long layover (early AM to late PM); any tips on what to see and do during one day? was thinking of a tour as that would squeeze in the main bits and it's all done for me?

I was really expecting a horror story here...

Not an average plane delay on the tarmac story you read happens all over world on a regular basis, with all sorts of airlines

My flight last week as stuck on the tarmac for an hour and Ryanair said they couldnt give/sell water.. Even to people who needed it for lifesaving medications. Until the flight was on the tarmac for 3 hours. Thought that was pretty bad... But again. Nowhere near the worst thing you read about plane journies.

You can take fluids on planes with you so tbh it is kinda the persons own fault if they choose not to purchase juice or water after security, to take on the plane. And choose not to take any food on board... (Unless Japan has weird laws/rules where they don't allow this when flying out from there)
I always travel with a filed litre Sigg bottle, it is sometimes finding a drinking water fill spot in UK airports that is a complete biatch
Geneva & elsewhere are easy to deal with.

& earplugs to shut out the noise of the moaners who are crying for liquid when delayed.
I've never had a truly awful flight (maybe monarch comes close to that phrase) had some good 48 hr delays which have been very enjoyable, stuck on tarmac for hours once ..no bother,
Just not looking forward to queues in geneva come the exit from the EU, but then again, it won't b any worse than the same airport pre 1992, so no drama! (not like Switzerland is EU, just feels like it when you hit the segregation channel queues for passport control.

I used to know so many of the security at GVA by sight, they used to wave me through & let me hop back & forth if I needed to go back through without worries. .these days they seem to test the new security staff on me because they know my rucksack x-ray often shows up as peculiar, the new security give up after a few minutes of pulling out cheeses & the like.

However every winter holiday I've had with Inghams has been a prison sentence of disaster & incompetence from the staff, maybe they were employed by a chinese airline beforehand, that would go a long way to explaining things.

For someone well travelled I would have thought you knew Beijing is in China
