George Gets our Ticket

Traveling by Air in China

8. George Gets our Ticket

It turned out that whoever had made reservations for us had goofed. We had only one reservation. George obtained the second reservation for us and then checked our luggage with no over weight charges. When it was all completed he came and got us to go through checking our carryon bags. He escorted us through the VIP screening and off to the plane. Our thanks to George. Another example of Guanxi (connections) in action. At VIP screening they just waved us through.
