ABSTRACT In the field of accounting informationization, the establishment and development of XBRL has aroused wide concerns. Abandoning the constrain of the conventional theoretical study, this paper is based on the case of applying XBRL in Eastern Airlines (abbr. CEAIR) to integrate theory with practice. The authors researched the extension of the general taxonomy in specific industry, described the obstacles during the operation and the achievement it would obtain, as well as the valuable experience.
