Air China takes a test flght

We arrived in Shanghai Monday, October 23, after an overnight delay in Beijing of a connecting flight to Shanghai whose Airbus had developed some kind of equipment problem. We arrived back at the gate after a night in the hotel only to see the airplane pulling away to the surprise even of the gate agent. A few phone minutes later, Air China announced they were “taking it out for a test flight” and gave us each the equivalent of $50 in cash to make us feel better. We didn’t.
