It has been a while since I had posted any review on drama. Given my passion with travel and also working in the industry, its no surprise to those who knows me that I will definitely not miss Flight To You, the most recent popular Chinese Drama starring Nick Wang Kai and Steven Tan Song You 🥰 Both are one of my fav actor and actress 🥰
Flight To You is story of an inspiring Female Pilot, Cheng Xiao in a primarily male dominate industry. It’s the story of her struggle towards achieving her dreams of being a recognised Captain Xiao aka Pilot by her peers and also gaining the recognition and support from her mother.
While, strict Captain cum Instructor Gu Nanting having lost his ex-girlfriend due to aviation accident, were finding it hard to move on. He focus his life with work only never ever wanting to fall in love again.
Initially both Cheng Xiao and Instructor Gu were always on each other’s throat. Eventually, Cheng Xiao was able to prove herself through hard work and gain the recognition not only from her strict instructor Gu, also from her mother whom had fear of flying due to past experience and was strongly against her choice of career.
What I really like about this drama … the support and strong friendships within the support role. From one of Cheng Xiao’s suitor, Engineer Ni Zhan whom happen to be Gu Nanting’s best friend as well to her bff, Xia Zhi and Song Song, the strong friendship and support extended by everyone 🥰
Loved the support from the leadership in Luzhou Airlines. Even Captain Jiang whom at a point was very irritating and evil, I loved how they turned his character to accepting his fault, gracefully stepping down and rectifying the wrong, willingly to admit what he had done.
The encouragement from Captain Xia towards Cheng Xiao as she was thinking of giving up.
It certainly took the male lead and female lead a long time to finally get together. While Cheng Xiao had been courageous in admitting her feeling towards Gu Nanting, he took a long time to finally admit how he felt about her. And the effort he made to chase her back …. how he was willing to fly thousands of miles to find the witness to help Cheng Xiao, to helping her with her mother’s fear of flying to sending her flowers.
To me, the ending was missing the final part of them getting married… however it is definitely a good ending when Cheng Xiao finally achieved her dream of being Captain Cheng Xiao.
This drama is definitely worth watching. It contain a good storyline of friendship, female trying to achieve success in a male dominate world, family relationship, unity of working as a team and a warm loving relationship 🥰
