China Eastern - Lijiang/Chengdu

If there is an expert who could send me in the right direction - I would be greatly appreciative. I am trying to find out if China Eastern MU5855 flies every day of the week with these flight times: 07:50-09:10.
I get close to figuring it out - but not close enough... I think that one will work for us and the only other one I see is Air China departing late in the evening. Thanks!

When are you going? Searching flights for later in August, yes MU5855 is daily. Departure time is 8:00am. This is according to elong.net. Those flights are also all bookable.

Hi rkkwan,

I thought you might know. That is one of the sights I was trying, but I could not find it there. The date I need is May 19. Is it too far away to show up? Or am I just missing it? Thanks!

There is another site I found where it shows today's departure and ETA - but I just want to try to make sure for May 19???

It's way too early to search or book for May 19.

Thank you. Do you also think it is way too early to book from US to China? I was not planning to book the MU5855 yet, but as part of my planning, if the flight does not run everyday - it could make a difference on my US/China flight plans. That is why I was trying to determine if it departs every day of the week. When would you recommend booking?

In normal years, yes, too early to book flight US to China. I usually suggest waiting till maybe January.

But next year is the Olympics. I don't know how that will affect airfare and availability throughout spring and summer.
