    It’s the airport’s (WUH) only service to the US, so it’ll be interesting to see how well/poorly customs deals with not only US visitors but people taking advantage of the 72 hour transit during a stopover.

    @Brett – while it is the only US service, they do have int’l service to cities in Asia like Tokyo and Bangkok. The Hubei gov’t is spending a lot of money on this flight (they are giving China Southern huge subsidies), so would imagine they are doing everything possible to make it as seamless as possible.
