Cons: "instead of gluten biscuits, peanuts or popcorn could be offered"
Cons: "Good as expected"
Pros: "The crew was nice, the food was good. We did miss our first flight, so we were automatically rebooked on a new flight."
Cons: "We missed our first flight because of our connection."
Cons: "Food was identical to previous flight, which made me ill. There were only tiny drop down screens for every few rows, so it was hard to see the movie they chose for everyone."
Cons: "Food and movie selection"
Pros: "Spacious and comfortable"
Cons: "Food was pretty bad"
Pros: "Flight was on time and the ride was smooth."
Cons: "Need option to order vegetarian food, including a day in advance."
Cons: "They hold us for 1 hour in a hot area while waiting to board the plain instead of letting us stay in the waiting area"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Good airline"
Pros: "excellent and very organized, quick and efficient"
Cons: "I wish they would have offered more water, it was a very long flight and the airport and buying water at the Taipei airport was not easy as it was far from terminal and the other choice was vending machine but you couldn't use a credit card or US currency,"
Pros: "Very comfortable Business Class seat, pretty good entertainment."
Cons: "Service seemed a little off, especially relative to a much shorter FUK-TPE flight a few days earlier. Flight attendants often approached from behind."
Cons: "Cleaning the restroom area more often for international flighywiuld be great"
Pros: "Late night flight, crew was good and timely"
Cons: "I got sick from the spaghetti dinner served 2 hrs before landing."
Pros: "Stewardesses were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "All was ok"
Pros: "1. Kind and accommodating flight attendants 2. The provided earbuds/earphones are great since they provide a bit of noise cancelling or at least block out extra noise"
Cons: "Rude customer service. Hard to understand English. unhelpful staff. Flight was delayed an hour and a half and during the entire time waiting in the lounge, the staff did not notify passengers about the delay until the new boarding time. Updates along the way would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Hello Kitty themes"
Cons: "Coffee served diluted ."
Pros: "Staff on board was excellent. We were 3 hours delayed and they knew we had a connecting flight, so they moved us to the front of the plane so we could et off quicker."
Cons: "We were 3 hours delayed - the board kept saying we were just 40 min delayed. Poor communication about the delay, when we would be leaving, etc. No rush in loading plane. LOTS of connections missed due to this. They told us our next flight would wait for us, and it DID NOT. They had already booked us on a later flight, even though we had 20 min to get to it."
Pros: "Nice new plane, attentive attendants, food always great. Rarely any complaints with EVA, even on long-haul flights (16+ hours)."
Cons: "Chicken pasta was cold on the returning flight. Flight crew didn’t come by with water that I saw, except before/with meals. Flight was very cold, even with their nice blanket."
Pros: "Good food, attentive staff,but entertainment need a little upgrade . Overall it was good"
Cons: "it always seems odd that they don't start loading the back of the plane first, perhaps i'm wrong but it seems logic thus you would not have a huge line of people standing in the aisle putting away stuff while you are mking yur way to the back"
Cons: "Flight is delay,take a long line for transfer, it makes me dizzy,got bad mood"
Pros: "service was fantastic"
Cons: "I am a small person and the head rest were a little too high"

Cons: "Uncomfortable tight narrow seats"
Pros: "Plane was clean, blanket and pillow comfortable, attention during scheduled meal and snack services good"
Cons: "Food a step down from what it was during last flight a few years ago. Movie selection meager. Flight attendants could make a few more rounds to check passenger needs."
Cons: "Food ia not that good. Need to have more flavoryy"
Cons: "I didn't like the food. The worse was that all my luggages were soaked with water. Water was still coming out from the suitcase when we reported about it to the Eva counter in HONG KONG AIRPORT. WE DID NOT KNOW HOW AND WHERE THE WATER CAME TO MY SUITCASE , FOR WE HAD NOT PUT ANY LIQUID IN OUR SUITCASE. BESIDES, THERE WERE OTHER TWO PASSENGER'S RAISED THE SAME PROBLEM to EVA WHILE WE WERE THERE IN THE AIRPORT OF HONG KONG. SHOULD EVA TAKES THE RESPONSIBILITY OF IT?"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and no one communicated to me. I got up at 2 am and went To the airport at 3 am and then found out that the flight was cancelled. Had to talk to many people to put me on a different flight. Lot of confusion and chaos"
Pros: "Timely flight, no delays."
Cons: "There were no issues."
Cons: "movies are limited. Inbound and outbound flights have the same selections. So too little choices"
Pros: "Great experience all-around. Customer service agents were very attentive upon check-in. Boarding was seemless. Flight attendants were very attentive offering beverages, snacks, and meals frequently. Entertainment options were good. All of the aforementioned made a very long flight more pleasant. Great job."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Passengers w/terrible manners such as picking nose, using teeth sticks, gases......."
Cons: "The sauce was old and make me sick."
Pros: "The meals were good. Wine served. Cabin crew very responsive."
Cons: "See comment above as I entered it in the wrong section."
Pros: "I remember back when i was a kid and my Grandmother took us to Disneyland, back when there was "Service" in the USA. If i can avoid any US carrier, and I will fly with EVA. there is meals on flight, checked bags, carry-on bags, smiles, all without extra fees, charges, and they were least expensive to fly."
Cons: "As with all airlines the seats are a little tight and a bit more legroom would be nice, I am a larger man and it was still comfortable even after 18 hours of flight time."
Cons: "Eva is great airline , better then a lot of the competitors. However during the lag between Taipei and SFO we did not receive any drinking water unless requested - on any other airlines they always provide small bottled water , For the long lag of the flight liquid is essantation."
Pros: "There was nothing good about this experience. Management at the highest levels made decisions that showed gross inattention to the wellbeing of passengers and crews."
Cons: "My wife and I were scheduled to fly out of Taipei on the day a major typhoon made a direct hit on Taiwan. Taipei was shut down, offices and shops were closed, residents were sheltering at home, and other carriers had cancelled essentially all flights during the 10 hours when the storm was projected to be over the island and had posted long delays (of 8 and 10 hours and longer) on their uncancelled flights. Only EVA stubbornly clung to the fiction that our flight and others would actually depart -- and depart on time. EVA's refusal to acknowledge reality -- and timely communicate that reality to its customers -- made planning impossible, stranding passengers at hotels without bookings, preventing contingency planning and forcing many passengers to make needless trips to the airport over treacherous roads made hazardous by heavy flooding, downed trees, blowing debris, high winds and blinding rain. EVA's decisions cost us money, inconvenience, time and anxiety. For the passengers and crews on inbound planes that EVA actually landed or tried to land in Taipei that day, the consequences were worse: head and other injuries from extreme turbulence and hard landings, and then hours on tarmacs unable to deplane because the winds were above the maximum level for the safe deployment of jetways. Getting out the next day with an upgrade to business class doesn't do it for me. I am a United 1K-Star Alliance Gold flyer. I fly a fair amount and I expect, above all else, an uncompromising focus on safety and clear, candid and timely communication. Never again EVA."
Pros: "Leg space in economy was good, seemed to be more than on some other airlines."
Cons: "Cabin crew does not seem to be very happy as smiles are hard to find on the flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and great service."
Pros: "They didn't feed me after 12 hours of flight from Taiwan to Seattle."
Cons: "Nothing to like about Alaska airlines."
Cons: "My seat was right by the bathrooms so every time someone went in it woke me up through the whole flight"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Kayak really dropped the ball and I have lost the entire cost of the tickets AND the travel insurance which didn't do anything. What a waste!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable seating, and good food. Enjoyed my flight with China Airlines and will travel with them again in the future!"
Pros: "The ground steward in LAX attended to our needs. He was cheerful and made us feel welcome."
Cons: "The service on both flights, from LAX to Taipei and from Taipei to Manila. The flight attendants need to smile more often. They look so serious, especially when you ask them for something."
Pros: "The crews were attentive, hospitable."
Cons: "The same as above. Even sitting on Comfort seat, it's not comfortable, there's no place to keep belongings, next to toilets."
Pros: "The technical aspects of the flight were fine. Boarding, the flight, and the aircraft. Very nice plane."
Cons: "The crew was not very friendly and it didn’t seem like there were enough staf for such a large plane. It took a long time to get our first meal, and the food was terrible in comparison to other flights, even other China air flights we’ve been on. We could not understand the English announcements as she was not a fluent speaker. I would probabalynavoid flying with China air again."
Cons: "Six empty seats in the “emergency row” I was not feeling well and needed the extra space.5 hours into the 13 hr long haul to Taipei, I felt like I was going to hyperventilate, they charged me $120. Bucks for the privilege. Kosher meal was unbeatable."
Pros: "Everything was good, comparing with other airlines with higher price, China airline was the best"
Cons: "Food could have been better"

Cons: "Food options aren't that familiar but ok to the taste anyway. :)"

Pros: "Crew was okay. Food was the worse ever. Middle comfort on seats"

Cons: "I got economy, the seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "The tall male agent from boarding was very helpful and attentive. When I mentioned to him that I do have a medical condition, he immediately assisted me without hesitation.

Cons: "Honestly, all is the best! I would fly China Airlines again!"
Pros: "I like the staff was very nice, and boarding process was not bad."
Cons: "The aircraft was extremely dirty, also my seat was saturated with a spilled drink and it was all over the seat and the tray table and tv, there was old food crusted on the seat back. I didn’t want to touch a thing thank god it was only a two hour flight. Very very outdated."
Cons: "Dinner served 1130 pm breakfast after 12 hrs peanut snack."
Cons: "Waiting forceherlchsir at Taipei and boarding plane took all of the 1.5 hour layover. Not very organized."
Pros: "Like the seats, in flight entertainment and in flight staff are friendly."
Cons: "Did not like baggage fees for flying with Ice Hockey Goalie gear. Was dinged a monsterous $634 for baggage fees due to being over weight and over size on my goalie gear. Really it cant be made any smaller or lighter. THEN DINGED AGAIN for sticks as an over sized item again ! WTF ! Most other airlines label it as sporting goods and I pay the overweight fee, usually $150 CAD. Not this airline ! I could have booked another person for return flight and only added $300 to my bill ! Utter ridiculous how bad I got raped on this. Ok over weight yes. But over weith + oversize + oversize is a bit much !"
Pros: "The flight was fine. Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "I was not allowed to recline my seat because the person behind me did not want me to recline."
Cons: "Smell was so bad during flight"

Pros: "The staff was very friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Food was nothing special"
Cons: "The seat pitch is quite narrow makes plane feel crowded. Flight attendant does not pay attention to the request"
Pros: "Warm service from check-in to destination. Counter staff arranged, without hesitation, upon my casual asking if could change to window seating and she did it with a smile (though I've web-checked in already). Service on flight was heart-warming too!"
Cons: "-"
Pros: "I especially liked the meals, entertainment, and really friendly staff."
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "Even with some delay taking off, we were only a few minutes late at LAX. Overall flight was nice and uneventful."
Cons: "Baggage is not First In First Out. Although I was probably one of the first few passengers coming out of immigration, my bags came in last. It took about 45 mins to 1 hrs after immigration to get my bags. Was it because they were first loaded in Taipei, since our connection form Manila arrived 4 hrs before the LAX flight?"
Pros: "The crew is always very helpful and polite go out of your way to make you comfortable I have a slight disability that they accommodate when possible"
Cons: "Who was a good trip there was nothing I did not like everything that I expected the food could have been a little bit better but it wasn't bad"
Pros: "It’s takes s long time checking in due to long lines."
Cons: "Sits are too small and wish better choices for the food they serve."
Pros: "The flight was at the end of Thanksgiving weekend and was completely full, but the check-in, boarding, and in-flight service were all efficient and attentive. Food was pretty good, and the economy fares were very competitive. First time on CA, and would definitely use them again."
Cons: "One rude gate agent at SFO named Lisa."
Pros: "Food"
Pros: "Flight arrived early"
Pros: "Speed of checking in process"
Cons: "Only fed us twice during the 15 hour trip. I wasn't the only one who was hungry almost 9 hours after the first meal was served. Other Chinese airlines I've been on fed their passengers 3 times."
Pros: "i like their food ."
Pros: "Service was great! Plane amenities were also great for economy."
Cons: "Food could have been better. The beef with rice tasted weird."
Pros: "My very first time flying china airlines and loved everything about it... food, service, comfort, etc."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The hand towels were a nice touch."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and notice was only sent that morning. If I had known of the delay sooner, I wouldn't have left for the airport as early as I did."
Pros: "Service on the ground and in the air was efficient, if somewhat cool and uninterested. (The exception was at checkin counter where the service was great.) options for entertainment were great. Food was decent, legroom was decent, plane was older but still decent...."
Cons: "The entire plane's group of passengers seemed to be lined up at the boarding gate - no explanation why, but they were checking ID's. Then the line just moved into the plane. I prefer boarding by rows, especially when traveling with my young son. Air crew seemed pretty uninterested in anything beyond the basic requirements of the job."
Pros: "No delays, new aircraft, great service (only comparable to JAL)."
Cons: "Flight attendants are too cute and look too young, I would like to see someone more experience (or give me assurance that they are experienced)."
Pros: "The staff was amazing and the movie options were extensive"
Cons: "We departed much later than anticipated and I missed my connecting flight as a result - had to spend an extra 10 hours at LAX until next flight available. The food was terrible, I only ate the fruit!"
Pros: "Landed safely"
Cons: "Food was not that great. I expected more in premium ecconomy"
Pros: "Very accommodating."
Cons: "Airline somehow cancelled our spot on the flight without us knowing, only found out when we were doing the checkin at the airport. What followed was an hour and half of international phone calls to try to sort this mess out. Ended up with us having to go to an airport an hour away to catch another flight so we don't miss our trip. Terrible terrible experience and stressful."
Pros: "Connection flight on the way back was a bit late but we still made the connection just fine. The airplane was new. Nice seats and nice video system. The flight crew were very nice, professional and quite beautiful"
Cons: "The food was typical airline food which is not very good."
Pros: "Aside from the one issue mentioned, everything else was fine."
Cons: "The flight took off on time and then veered far off the usual route, resulting in arrival an hour late. If any explanation was given in any language, I must have missed it."
Pros: "Flight was great only issue was that I couldn't take my bag on the flight. It was said to weigh to much but others had heavy bags and had them on the flight."
Pros: "Overall, it was a complete service. Crew was attentive, good entertainment, even though it was a short flight they offered pillows and blankets; nice experience."
Cons: "I understand they prepare the food according to the region where the flight takes places, but maybe they can have a different option for those who enjoy more western food when flying in Asia, or vice-versa ."
Pros: "Had entertainment that was similiar to international flights in Delta"
Cons: "The food was pretty bad with bread being stale/tough and some of the main courses too greesy to eat."
Pros: "Nice staff and fast boarding"
Cons: "Terrible seating and mediocre food"
Cons: "It was all excellent."
Cons: "First plane was newer, 2nd plane was older."
Cons: "My wifi was not working for the entire trip!"
Cons: "Took 45 minutes to get through Calgary security, long line ups"
Cons: "Air Canada continues to underwhelm me. We left the gate 35 minutes late despite having everyone on board. Then off to de-ice where we sat with a truck outside for ten minutes they did work. It was like they were having a coffee break. The flight and board service was exceptional. Baggage delay of a"
Cons: "They changed planes and the seats I paid for at reservation were different on the new plane. No warning!!"
Pros: "Only thing good was the brevity of the flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was dirty and ridiculously cramped. Air Canada undermines its brand by flying planes like these."
Cons: "JustFly did not release my coupon to Lufthansa or Air Canada, and so I was nearly prevented from flying."
Cons: "This leg was so late...I was waiting in Calgary almost 7 hours... they put me on a different flight so I would make my connector in Toronto to Windsor....I originally had a 2 hour window. The second plane was so late, by the time I landed in Toronto, I had 10 minutes. Needless to say, after starting out in Kamloops at 6 am, that was missed also. Last leg missed as well, and had to wait another 4 hours for the last flight out. Just an incredibly frustrating trip"
Pros: "Movies available. Food available for purchase."
Cons: "It was crowded in the back of the aircraft. Many vacant rows were available, but my advance check in and seat change / upgrade was not available on line. I would have paid to have moved up to an un-occupied section of the aircraft if I could have. My mistake. I should have got up and walked around looking for these vacant seats. Despite the captain announcing that WIFI Internet was available for purchase. There was no WIFI on this aircraft. I am a tech guy. The flight attendant said just use your credit card. NO there was no WIFI available."
Pros: "Flight was late leaving and I had a connection flight - they changed my seat so I could be at the front and get my bag easily and run to get my connecting flight. Everyone was very helpful."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "My seat was wet and i had to wait quite a while for it to be rectified. I asked to sit on a crew seat at the back of the plane and was told that i would break it. I found this rather disgusting . Seating plan is very crammed like sardines"
Pros: "First flight comfortable fast clean aircraft Second flight older plane small not as clean"
Cons: "Air canada has a problem at every arrival gate each time we landed there was no sttebdebt st the gate and so we sat on the tarmac fir a while while they awIted somebody to come and drive the Jetway to allow us to park and deplane This happened all three times"
Cons: "Cancelled one flight, then delayed another one because they were waiting for a pilot. They offered very little help, citing that they couldn’t control the weather, meanwhile WestJet is finding & paying for rooms, shuttle buses and taxis to make the delay more tolerable and less stressful. We could only watch and wish we were flying WestJet."
Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."
Pros: "Everything else was fine/standard."
Cons: "Not all ground staff are crosstrained on how to accept manual payment for extra luggage and had to wait an extra half hour for the only person who can process a debit transaction. Does not make sense..."
Cons: "I bought my ticket with Air Canadafrom Vancouver to Calgary then connected with Lufthansa from Calgary to London UK. Unknown to me I could not find the flight because it had been changed to an AC reference flight. With a very short time for the connection I did not know where to get my boarding pass as my flight with Lufthansa was nowhere referred to ! Not which gate to go . Why not put it in the ticket that Lufthansa and Air Canada work together and that both flights ref should show !! It would avoid a great deal of anxiety . Only offered 1 round if hot drinks over 9 hours ! Departure delayed by nearly 60 minutes"
Pros: "excellent service"
Cons: "flight was late"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs"
Cons: "The plane was late and caused me to miss my connecting flight and my very important doctor's appointment."
Pros: "This was a boring flight which is a good thing, no drama, no mechanical problems, no weather problems. More leg room than an overseas flight."
Cons: "Flight late (30 minutes) as mostly with Air Canada, fortunately not cancelled this time as also common with Air Canada short distance flights Not enough space in overhead compartments for carry on. The lady at the boarding makes it sound like that is the passengers fault."
Pros: "Very good overall."
Cons: "Entertainment selection poor and dated."
Cons: "We were already running late when during take off, one of the engines malfunctioned and we had to emergency break on the runway and go back to the gate. Because it was unexpected, we had to wait even longer for a gate to become available. We then had to re go through customs and get our bags then wait in line again at the counter to schedule our flight for the next day. Thankfully we were given a hotel room and money for food. Very scary experience overall on the runway, but they tried to handle it as smoothly as possible under the unusual circumstances."
Cons: "The prop aircraft that Air Canada uses for the YYC-YEG route are old and cramped. They do nothing for the Air Canada brand."
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "I was stuck in immigration for about an hour. The screening process at this airport is so laborious. You have to wait on a bench until they call your name and they don't care if your flight is about to be boarding. I understand that immigration is necessary but they could at least have people form a queue instead of having us wait for our names to be called. I told them that my flight would be boarding in 25 minutes and they told me "Oh, don't worry, they'll just put you on the next flight". But when I got to my airline to check in, they charged me $150. I needed that $150 to pay some bills when I got back home."
Pros: "Once again, being on time was important to me. Crew members were nice."
Cons: "I wish they would've offered free snacks on this flight given how long it was. It would've also been to nice to have been forewarned about needing to go through security again, as I had a U.S. connection from Toronto. That takes a lot of time, even with a bit of a layover."
Pros: "Good leg room in coach"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving, the boarding process was messed up and could not understand the person doing the announcements (was speaking too fast)..."
Pros: "This was the absolute worst experience of my life. Out flight from Calgary to LAX was on the complete other side of the airport than our connector to San Diego. After a delay we had a short amount of time to get to the next flight. We literally were told to just cross the parking lot. Well... that ended up being a 25 minute run across the airport to only have to go thru security again. After navigating construction and parking structures we got to our gate 10 minutes late and would not be let on the flight. There was zero communication, sympathy or help from the United Airlines staff. We were told it was not their problem because we came in through Air Canada- BUT we booked through United! All in all it was an absolute nightmare that ended in us renting a car at 12am and driving back to San Diego with zero compensation from United Airlines"
Cons: "No communication between airlines! No customer service to fix their lack of planning and communication. Just terrible all around"
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Seats were narrow and sitting in aisle seat you were constantly hit every time cabin crew took trolley up / down aisle. Woke up by cabin crew banging into me."
Pros: "The flight itself was good. Service at the end of the flight was the worst ever."
Cons: "They got in late to lax. Made no apparent effort to get us on alternative airlines or flights. I was rebooked on a flight 24 hours out No help finding hotels, meals or even terminal. It was a codeshare with united but neither would united help in any way because it was booked through air Canada."
Cons: "Air Canada was one hour late leaving the gate. This in fact was a great improvement as when we left Montreal on Dec.21 they were 4 hours late and in the best of xmas cheer didn't even offer us a free drink. Way to go AC."
Pros: "the seat beside me was open"
Cons: "they made us rush through customs while yellig at us nd being very condescending then we waited an hour to board because the airport door wouldn't open for the crew"
Cons: "my language has been lost !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "The lady who checked us in caused a major problem with seating. The person I was traveling with was blind and I was her guide. We specifically asked to be seated together and the lady told me we were. I even confirmed with her and she told me yes again. When we boarded we found out our seats were 17 rows apart. I found out that she did this for the connecting flight as well (not as far apart but still not together) this caused a great deal of stress as I couldn't help her when I needed to."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the crew was friendly. We were re-booked onto another flight by the time we de-planed, which took some stress away."
Cons: "The entertainment selection needs more variety. The food choices were just okay. The flight was delayed and we missed our connection. Also, our friend received a food voucher for the delay while we did not. Boarding can be a little chaotic."
Pros: "This flight ended up arriving at the final destination a day later instead of first thing in morning last thing at night."
Pros: "Only 30 minutes late, nice landing."
Cons: "Pitch between seats, filth all over seat back and tray table, mass rush to board when zone three is called, no free snacks, limited drink choices, etc."
Pros: "Meh."
Cons: "Video display didn't accept touch input so didn't work at all."
Pros: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Flight delayed as usual (for Air Canada)"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything"
Cons: "Flight was delayed making me miss my connection. Poor customer service at the airport plus the fact that my baggage got lost however, it was delivered after 24 hours."
Cons: "I had a last minute seat assignment (middle seat) in both legs of my flight. AC lost my bags and a day later only retrieved one of them. Still waiting for my second bag."
Pros: "Econamy class allows 2 piece of bag."
Cons: "I only have one bag. My bag is weighted 57 lb and charged me CA$100.00. They should have averaged 2 bags' weight and I should not have charged CA$100.00. I think the service is poor."
Cons: "Too many people with more than two bags. You have to force more people to put there bags in the plane storage not overhead. Two many carry-on bags and people had back packs with another bag, some computer bags. It takes too long to board the plan"
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the crew was efficient. Getting on and off the plane was smooth."
Cons: "I couldn't believe how little room there was for such a long flight! There wasn't enough room for me to reach my bag that was on the ground even when the seat in front of me wasn't reclined. And the people next to me kept jabbing me with their elbows because three grown adults simply could not sit next to one another in such a small space. I'm a small person so if I feel crammed on a flight I have no idea how the average person can tolerate it!"
Pros: "They had a wheelchair accessible for me and delivered me to my waiting party."
Pros: "Entertainment system might have been nice if the earphone plug worked."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seat of all time because it was broken but the flight attendant didn't care."
Pros: "Great valve"
Cons: "Delay in boarding by about 20 minutes. Had to stand in line for about 1 hour because we were not allowed in the terminal seating area until the previous plane's passengers disembarked."
Pros: "see SH to GZ prior flight. The same."
Cons: "Same problems. Get KFC or McDonalds to cater. No one enjoys the airline's food which I suspect is prepared on a very small budget. Even a sandwich with a pre-packaged drink would elevate the foodservice."
Cons: "Seats, crew, food."
Pros: "TV was okay when it was working, however crew was not around when I needed help and it was no longer functioning the last 3 hours of the flight."
Cons: "Food wasn't great. Not many options. Nothing vegetarian, of course I brought my own food, however it wasn't anything hot."
Cons: "Boarding by bus .... on time but departure delayed 45 mins ... I guess typical for China ..."
Pros: "Crew was able to accommodate my meal restriction on the spot without a problem. They were attentive but not overbearing."
Cons: "the boarding at Kathmandu was a bit confused as was the checkin process. There could have been signage at the Kathmandu airport on where to check in for China Southern airlines."
Cons: "Plane Seating space is so crowded & leg room space too small"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Food was really plain. More drink selection would be better."
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "Seats not as comfortable as most business class seats."
Cons: "3 hours delay I miss my professional meeting in Shanghai because of this big delay !!! I Sky Team Flying Blue Platinum for Life and this is the first time I got a bad seat and no window"
Pros: "I always sit in the upper deck of the A380. The 80 tourist class seats are much better than the configuration on other planes. The service is great and personalized. CS's food always amazes me with its quality."
Cons: "Like every other commercial airliner, the seats are not large enough and don't recline enough. It's not about the leg room, it's about the shoulder and hip room."
Cons: "Very good and friendly"
Pros: "Courteous staff, meal served on a 2 hr flight"
Cons: "Overhead movie was only in Chinese with no headphones distributed. Boarding passes have to be claimed in Guangzhou from a previous flight."
Cons: "Guangzhou airport transfer was uncomfortable expensive and won’t be traveling via this airport again"
Pros: "Good lay flat business seats on A380, great bang for the buck, lounge at GZ is nothing special, staff was good though."
Cons: "Poor inflight entertainment options - make sure to bring your own pre loaded device They deplane and board the A380 onto busses via a single two-story stair case. Yes - all 500+ people...with all their kids and bags, old people young people, all going up one single stair case, up two floors."
Pros: "Excellent seats and entertainment"
Cons: "The food (hindu meal) was terrible"
Pros: "It’s simply a way to get from one airport to another. Everything is adequate minus the food."
Cons: "The food is really bad, and everything else is adequate for simple travel."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival The inflight Crew were courteous"
Cons: "Food is inedible My issue with the boarding had to do with the poor decorum of the representatives at check in and those who helped assistance me to the gate."
Pros: "Did not get online seat selection and online check in. Not satify at all with customer service over the phone."
Pros: "Middle of the night water service."
Cons: "Compact sitting."
Pros: "Hospitality was good except food. For long route frequent snacks suggested which was missing."
Cons: "Food, beverage, water, liquor supply and bumpy ride."
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "You left me stranded in Bali and wouldn’t rebook me. You wouldn’t give me a full refund. You made me purchase an entirely new flight with a different airline. I spent FIVE hours on hold waiting to speak with a representative. I will advise anyone I know to never fly China Airlines"
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Besides the flight from Guangzhou was delayed for 2 hours due to mechanical issues, my luggage wasn't to be found when I arrived Kathmandu. This is the second time that it happened. The first time was in 2014 and it took them 4-5 days before they can locate it."
Pros: "The plane eventually did arrive"
Cons: "The plane was two hours late so we arrived at 2:30 am"
Pros: "Service was on time and efficient. Boarding went smoothly. Crew seemed well trained and attentive."
Cons: "No jetway at the destination gate. We had to wait for the bus late at night. The meal was not very tasty, but China Southern is by no means alone here."
Pros: "It was clean. Also the media selection"
Cons: "More food needed"
Pros: "My first flight was delayed 4 hours and I didn't even get on my connecting flight, even though the connecting flight was leaving after my first flight arrived!"
Cons: "No wifi. All food options contained meat or seafood. I wasn't sure if there were any snacks."
Pros: "Ticket price was great, awesome deal."
Cons: "Horrible seats! Tiny cramped seats with no padding. I'm not the smallest guy out there but anyone over 250 lbs forget flying economy. Both legs of my trip from vancouver to Perth via China on two different aircraft companies on brand new planes had the worst seats so I think it's China Southern specifying the seats. Also 13hour flight there, limited movie choice but on the way back the head phone jack in seat rest did not work. The airline refused to let you use phones, iPads and laptops while in flight! Flight attentents woke everyone up 2.5 hours before landing at 4:45 am to serve breakfast. Would pay more next time to fly Cathay Pacific or Singapore."
Pros: "Plane"
Cons: "Crew was not organised"
Pros: "Boarding was speedy and efficient"
Cons: "Little to choose in meals and unable to select this when booking the flight for vegetarian option. Very cramped and uncomfortable. IFE and offered nursing services but crew very poor English to communicate ...more concerned I had to find identification rather than get to person in trouble...then was not needed as someone else in lower deck was already present...frustrating"
Cons: "Music only to listen to, but headphones only worked on one side. Middle seat (B) didn't recline."
Cons: "Flight delayed 90 minutes. Poor communications in boarding area. No bi-lingual staff. Food consisted of a cup of yogurt, banana, and stale bread. Awful. Cabin crew was rude. Spouse's entertainment system did not work correctly."
Pros: "I had just suffered multiple breaks in my arm/shoulder and was returning to the States. I was in considerable pain and flying alone - this was the first flight out I could get. Everyone was AMAZING. From helping to rearrange seats, other passengers, and even upgrade to maximize comfort and minimize more damage to my arm to helping open any food packages so that I could eat with medication and checking in on me frequently, I couldn't have asked for better attention given the situation. I hadn't heard of this airline before but now highly recommend - they were amazing through two flight legs, two different airline crews, and 3 airports. Cannot thank the crew enough for their attention and care during a very difficult time. I am a frequent traveler and this is the best customer experience I've ever had."
Cons: "Nothing, they were amazing."
Cons: "Flight fare was cheap, but you get what ypu pay for. Rude and what appears to be an inexperienced crew, bad food, restroom stalls not cleaned frequently etc."
Pros: "Nice flight!"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Cheap / best / time saver experience"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "I liked the foot rest, pillow, blanket and head rest. The entertainment had a great variety of movies, which I enjoyed."
Cons: "The boarding could've been more organized. I only ate one meal out of the three that were served and the noodles were bland. The TV's should have a brightness option."
Pros: "Wide seats business class"
Cons: "Food, boarding, poor English"
Cons: "I asked if the flight had an extra kids meal (spag) and instead of replying yes or no, the crew repeatedly said 'fish' and 'chicken'. she did not address my question."
Pros: "Extremely impressed with the service and comfort of the flight"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was a painful leg of the trip!!"
Pros: "Plenty of movies friendly stewardesses"
Cons: "Arm rests on my row or this plane didn't go up. Touch screens on my seat and a seat mate were wonky at times"
Pros: "the male steward. the stock fellow. he was always smiling and cheerful. also joking. a fine young fellow. a good man. i was seated in the same row with this lady from Spain. she was hilarious and friendly so was the old lady from India, we had a blast laughing through out the trip and we shared tips about traveling"
Pros: "The on-board staff was friendly. Wish I had more good things to say."
Cons: "Delays seem to be a hallmark of this airline. I could go on for pages about the lack of communication from this airline and how they made me have to stay in a hotel because of a delay, but the less said the better. What exactly are the qualifications for being a member of the SkyTeam? On-board entertainment? I just want TIMELY, safe and comfortable flights. Frills are nice, but not necessary, and do NOT make up for not consistently delivering these priorities. Not allowing the use of cell phones in airplane mode on-board was mildly inconvenient also. Having more than one bathroom on the planes would also be appreciated."
Pros: "Just as boarding was to begin, announcement that it will be delayed an hour. Then 10 minutes later they board. We then push back and taxi to hold spot between terminals. Sit for 45 minutes then moved again. ( control tower is my guess to waiting line ) for a 30minute que to the runway, That timing is what an hour delay at the gate is. no doubt airline knew all this waiting as they didn't have control tower OK's to line up and wait. I watched rolls of planes move in front of ours during the waits on taxiways. Should have allowed us to wait in terminal rather then plane. Landing they made us sit with seats up for 45minutes also."
Pros: "One of the least expensive ways to fly lay flat business class to Asia."
Cons: "The experience is pretty awful - rude staff, constant delays in China, a business class lounge with wifi that barely functions and air conditioning that is never turned on."
Cons: "There was no WiFi offered. This really needs to change"
