When you have to fly 12 or 14 hours, I am curious how something as important as "Landing Permission," gets forgotten?

Isn't it heavily suggested that you apply for and receive your landing and overflight permits a full 96 hours before the departing flight to China? Was this a company issue or a paperwork issue on the Chinese government side?

Probably Chinese bring obstructive? Surely it could have been rectified whilst enroute?

If it was the other way around I’m sure it wouldn’t be an issue..
