Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I arrived at my destination."
Cons: "The food was not very good. Amenities such as toothbrush or mouthwash should be available on long haul flights."
Cons: "Great price getting from a to b."
Cons: "Boarding by bus .... on time but departure delayed 45 mins ... I guess typical for China ..."
Pros: "China Southern has great equipment. They are always well maintained and clean. The seats in main cabin are very comfortable. A great value!"
Cons: "As an English speaker, I find their service announcements on board often lack in clarity, but they try. I always stroll and enjoy engaging in flight crew in casual conversation about their thoughts of the equipment, schedule, plans during their layover. I find on this more personal level, they relax"
Cons: "Flight delayed, Missed connecting flight Not good response from ground crew members"
Pros: "Great schedules, convenient connections via CAN. Good food, excellent service. Highly recommended!"
Cons: "Keep up the great work!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was very professional and worked hard to please the passengers in service and care. Food in business class was really good, and in fact, were generous portions. Surprisingly good choice of movies in entertainment."
Cons: "No sweeteners fondrinks like coffee, just sugar. I would really suggest to China Southern to stock sweeterners for passengers who don’t use sugar."
Cons: "Very good service"
Pros: "3 free meals."
Cons: "Flight attendants are dry and dismissive."
Pros: "Crew seemed nice, helpful."
Cons: "It's a budget flight so can't expect much, yet aircraft was small cold and not comfortable for such long internatianal flight"
Pros: "Roomy, comfortable and quiet. Choosing to have dinner after a 5 hour sleep was great"
Cons: "Food choices wasn’t the best."
Pros: "After reading reviews on trip advisor about some specific problems such as customer service and food options, I am happy to say that my experience actually excelled in these two areas. I will be flying with China Southern again."
Cons: "The same things everyone doesn't like about the common flying experience, extended to a 15 hour flight."
Pros: "Seat space"
Cons: "Flight was 1 1/2 hours late and China Southern had shortened the connection time in Guanzough, China to Kuala Lumpur. In spite of me asking the crew to contact China Southern in Guanzough, no assistance was given. 'Service' by China Southern in Guanzough was NON-EXISTENT! We missed our flight to Kual Lumpur --where we had a driver waiting, a hotel for 2 nights, and a tour the next day. We lost ALL of those and did not arrive in Kuala Lumpur until 2PM the next day. Timing was CRITICAL that we be in Kuala Lumpur the night before per the schedule. China Southern served no beer or liquor on their international flight --only cheap wine in the smallest plastic glasses I have ever seen."
Pros: "I had the chance to chose my meal in advance, the food was great"
Cons: "Only served fish no other choice. Didn’t have red or white wine -only beer. They crew made me move seats so the woman next to me could have the whole row for sleeping."
Pros: "Service and aircraft fleet."
Cons: "Most flights delayed for no good reason. Miss connections on both legs of our round trip to India"
Pros: "Good es good"
Cons: "horrible seats, horrible staff, horrible food. then their airline make you want in this giant, confusing line to transfer planes which feels like its part of the state, but it's actually some strange system run by their staff which you wait in line for a stamp. i littleraly took 2 hours."
Pros: "Excellent airlines and staff Thank you for you !"
Cons: "Nothing to do with your airlines but the flight from Kathmandu was 90 minutes delayed which caused the security check to the connecting flight in China to be a nightmare of crowds trying to clear security the initiial 90 minute also probably was the reason my baggage didn't make it to LA and will be delivered to my address 2 days late"
Pros: "Cabin crew was wonderful and very attentive. Smooth flight with good food. 787 Dreamliner for a long haul 13 hour flight. First airline where I see the cabin crew clean the lavatories mid-flight! Overall a great experience.Would fly again."
Pros: "The staff of China Southern made our trip a great experience. We have flown with this airlines several times, and will continue to do so in the future! Thank you!!"
Cons: "I still don’t have my luggage and I’m coming home. Awful"
Pros: "Movie selections."
Cons: "Delayed. Seats are too close together for a long haul."
Pros: "Price and Plane"
Cons: "Boarding was completely random, economy seats felt narrower than typical, had to pay for seat selection."
Cons: "I reserved the wheel chair service but when I checked in at the counter with the wheel chair symbol, I was told they changed the counter to the other one which is far away and they also rejected to help me check in there. I had to move to the one with a long queue to handle those standby customers. This is my worst experience ever. The service of China Southern airline is becoming worse and worse. Never recommend again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortable for such a long flight. The layover in Wuhan was a nightmare."
Cons: "Horrible boarding experience, crew rude"
Cons: "Very limited program."
Pros: "Crew was really good and helpful but sometimes there was a language barrier. I accidentally got off the plane but it was my own mistake aa I should of paid closer attention to the itenary. I did ask a crew member if I should leave the plane and she said to ask ground crew. But there was a lot of pasangers that did the same thing. I had to go through customs, security check and immigration to get back on the plane."
Pros: "Great service for the price. Not a budget carrier but definitely a very competitive price."
Cons: "There are always delays with Southern China. Whether this is their problem or beyond their control I don't know know but it always seems to happen with this airline. Also the transfer in Guangzhou needs improving. They haven't quite mastered customer service outside the airplane. Very little warmth or friendly communication with the ground crew."
Pros: "SFO/Wuhan/SFO - great plane, good food good value"
Cons: "Beware of WUHAN China - it is dangerous, the airport is HORRIBLE and the Customs officials are a true nightmare. Make sure you have plenty of pages in your passport as you have to clear customs over and over - beware of the Taxi Stand (you have to walk to domestic terminal). I was hijacked in a taxi from the official taxi stand - a typical fare of 100 yuan and he charged me 400 yuan only once in the taxi."
Pros: "New, up to date aircraft with lots of good entertainment options. Staff was friendly, flights were on time."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Seats were mediocre comfort level."
Pros: "my aisle seat was reasonably comfortable. we departed and left on time the stewardesses were polite and refilled my water glass 2 times"
Cons: "The food was awful. They gave us a box containing two rolls, ,some peanuts, a container of sweetened yogurt and a sweet gooey gelatinous item that was impossible to describe."
Pros: "Business class was confortable but plane showed signs of age"
Cons: "Would recommend a western menu option"
Pros: "Crew friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Food was well planned out and tasty."
Cons: "The Airbus 380 is more comfortable but CZ owns fewer of them than the B-777. Boarding is chaotic partly due the the Chinese tradition of disorganized attack instead of queuing but also the failure of the ticket takers to insist on queueing."
Pros: "They give you a free hotel room if you stay for longer than a certain number of hours."
Cons: "Food is ok, but it would be great if they had more Western food."
Pros: "Plane was nice and new."
Cons: "The food could be the worst of any airline food...and that is saying something. Also I had two flights and the short flight was a very old looking plane with the thinnest seats I had ever seen. It was one the first leg of a long trip so I was worried this is how the bigger flight was going to be but the next plane looked new and was much more comfortable."
Pros: "Additonal transit stop not mentioned on itinerary. No through check -in for luggage was disappointing Vegetarian meal not available evn though it was requested much in advance"
Pros: "dream liner is smooth...and no fat flight attendants"
Pros: "I was worried about such a long night flight with an airline that I wasn't familiar with but they were extremely polite and helpful, the seats were comfortable and a great entertainment selection. To everyone who complained about the food... It was not bad, actually better than most airplane food I have had. And I didn't hear a single person have anything negative to say about it as they polished everything off!"
Pros: "Crew, food, and entertainment all good."
Cons: "The A-380 is a monster of a plane, but there isn't much in the way of leg room in economy class compared to the 738. Also, the no cell phone rule is a bit annoying if you have things on your phone that you need to access during a 15-hour flight."
Pros: "Food was good. Attendants were very pleasant and helpful. They kept us hydrated. Plane was spacious. Comfortable. Would use this airline again. Take off and landing was perfect!!!!!"
Pros: "A380 Business class has new seat configuration that offsets all seats and each is its own "pod". The equipment is new and very comfortable. People on both segments were very nice"
Cons: "787 Dreamliner is a fairly new plane outfitted with Business class seats from 15 years ago. They are side by side with no dividers and very uncomfortable. ALSO, they did not even board from jetbridge. We had to take shuttle bus past the entire airport and past the maintenance hangers to our plane. Flight from CAN to SFO makes "stop" in Wuhan, China for 2.5 hour layover. 1) Disembark onto shuttle bus. 2) Travel across airport. 3) Go through immigration or customs AGAIN and then security check of luggage 4) Walk 1/2 mile to business lounge 5) spend less than 10 minutes in lounge 6) get back on bus to be taken back to airplane. 7) wait another 1/2 hour b4 departure. Weird place to stop and even crazier procedures."
Cons: "Confusing and lacking announcements/instructions. Crew cannot speak intelligible English. Flight was late over 4 hours and no food vouchers aside from hotel accommodation. No apologies received from Crew/staff from the major inconveniences throughout the flight."
Cons: "Seats had no padding, extremely uncomfortable. Diarrhea, abdominal cramps from eggs served on flight. Fever, abdominal cramps. Regurgitating.It was the only food I have had in past 38 hours. The lighting was dim when the food was served, as I was eating the lighting came to full intensity. I was able to see a blue tint to the eggs. I had consumed 50% of the meal. Both flights I had, leaving China, were late. If Southwest had failed to hold the flight from L.A. to Albuquerque, I would have spent the night at LAX. We were 2+ hours late to LAX."
Cons: "I have never encountered a more unkind and discourteous customer service experience. The flight attendants were irascible and unfriendly - giving little care to the experience of the passenger. Mediocre food and VERY little space in the economy cabin for a long international flight made this a miserable experience. Flight was delayed for hours without any voucher or compensation for meals when I missed a connection (a total delay of 20 hours). The delay may have been unavoidable, but the lack of communication and customer empathy is inexcusable. A terrible experience - my first and last with this awful airline."
