Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "Ability to plug into a movie or music and go to sleep"
Cons: "Not being woke up to find out if I want something to eat or drink. Aisle seat and i was being knocked a lot. I had been up over 30 hours and was exhausted."
Cons: "Not much keg room for a medium size female."
Cons: "Seats were very tight compared to other airlines"
Pros: "They had a movie screen with movies available. Even though the trip was short, it was nice to have that option."
Cons: "I was made to pay for my carry on because of weight. I didn’t understand that when I booked. I am also certain that many other carry ones were more than 12 kilos."
Pros: "I sat in a seat that wasn’t my assigned seat, and no one said anything. It was awesome!"
Cons: "Lost my baggage even though I actually watched them transport it to the airplane from the airplane window. Brutal."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "The overhead bin space of this airplane was too small. My suitcase, which fits on every other type of plane, could not fit on this one. I had to check it and then go grab it at baggage claim, therefore having to go through security again. This was not the most convient for a tight connection."
Cons: "There needed to be vegetarian options."
Pros: "because of the cancellation the night before I was expecting chaos. But everyone was friendly and in great spirits. No issues. Way to keep it kool!"
Cons: "Waiting for a plane to go that wasn’t ready to move, going for 2 rounds of de-icing when the 1st wore off, losing our place in line. Should have waited a little longer at 1st de-icing so we could have left in allotted time period (20 minutes after application). Also fairly certain we left Toronto Airport past the 20 minutes of 2nd de-icing. Which resulted in many passengers missing connection flights (myself included) with as much as a “We are sorry” from Air Canada. I know the weather was an issue, but wasn’t sole cause."
Pros: "on time departure, early arrival"
Cons: "delayes again....."
Cons: "Air Canada Rouge is a nasty way to travel. In a standard seat, there is enough room for a very small adult/ child. If you are 6ft tall or more, you are going to be in trouble. If Air Canada gave an extra 3 inches of space for your knees between the seat in front of your own seat, everything else would be bearable. Corporate greed drives jamming in as many seats as humanly possible to ensure that you know how a sardine in a can feels. I am not sure why Air Canada feels justified in charging extra money for a bulkhead seat just so a customer can have a "normal" experience travelling. I would recommend every Air Canada exec goes for a ride on a Rouge Cattle Car to see how enjoyable it is."

Pros: "I liked having the pillow and blanket giving to us. So great!"
Pros: "Early boarding with kids International Toronto terminal very comfortable with plenty of free wifi charging and iPads"
Cons: "No tv did not have app for streaming , did not know when booking that TV only available on your personal device Did not want to pay $10 to rent iPad"
Cons: "My one checked bag did not arrive with me. Not sure where the delay was."
Cons: "The plane was on the edge of departure when I rushed aboard. The server waiting at boarding had a patronizing attitude. As if to say, "Why are you late?""

Cons: ". no vegetarian options.... nothing outstanding or comfort feel... nothing that would make me choose the airline as a preference over others ~ other than the price"
Cons: "3 hours of delay because of a technical failure"
Cons: "Flown business class 4 times with China southern. But their beds never lay completely flat. Always have a hump in the middle so I raise the back a bit to compensate"
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."
Pros: "The food was excellent for airline food. The crew were very nice."
Cons: "I couldn't get the wifi at Beijing Capital Airport to work with my American computer no matter what I did..."
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised. Seats were comfortable. Blankets were warm. Food was good, and I'm grateful for that because I couldn't understand the flight attendant because of her accent."
Cons: "The crew was weirdly OCD about when we were allowed to have our window shades up or down and I got yelled at a couple times for improper window shade use. I was also woken up literally every 2 hours to ask if I wanted food or beverage which I appreciated the diligence but also I like sleep."

Cons: "More room but we all know space is limited. Food can be improved though"

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."
Pros: "China Southern has an excellent and attentive staff, very friendly and responsive. The boarding process is smooth with very little complications. In the course of 20 hours they served two full meals with sandwiches for snacks. These were decent meals as far as I am concerned."
Cons: "Guangzhou to Toronto, the cabin was a little warm for my liking, I don't think it ever got below 25°c in there, for me it made it a bit difficult to sleep. This was not the case on my flight from Toronto to Guangzhou so maybe this was just an isolated case."
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."
Cons: "According to ticket bought, there was no stopover and immigration process mentioned. However it turned out that there was a stopover between Frankfurt and Guangzhou. As a result: Chinese "One China policy: collided with a sticker in my passport, so that I was declined necessary entry into China for transit purposes. 1) The staff in Frankfurt should have checked my documents first and should have pointed out that problem. 2) It should have been clearly highlighted on the tickets and during booking, that there is a stopover with necessary immigration into China."
Pros: "Good service, friendly cabin crews and on-time flight. Great price."

Pros: "The arrival was on time. The aeroplane landed very smooth. Luggages arrive the terminal in very short time. Overall this was a comfortable trip."

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Food was mediocre."
Cons: "Food is awful"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Airport staff were friendly enough. Ticket price was cheap."
Cons: "Airline website for check-in was a huge challenge... not as easy or convenient to use at all. Cabin crew really could care less about service. Typical Chinese hospitality, if you know what I mean. But honestly, if you’re looking to save a few dollars and don’t mind lack of technological convenience or service Inflight, and your expectations aren’t that high, China Southern does the job."
Pros: "check in was friendly, and efficient, crew was friendly."
Cons: "food was edible- but that was about it. I don't eat pork so not so good for the other option. entertainment was blah..."
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."
Cons: "There was a male flight attendant (I think there were 2 male flight attendants on the flight from LA to Guangzhou) and he looked really upset and angry all the time. He never smiled at customers and did not help customers with a customer servixe mindset. Other flight attendants were really nice and helpful!"
Pros: "Other than it not crashing, Nothing."
Cons: "We had 4 flights with them due to connections. On the longest flight back to the states they wouldn't let anyone use their phone or tablets even though they did on the other flights. There was barely any movies or shows to watch. The crew weren't very polite and spoke very limited english. You couldn't understand anything they announced on the intercom system because is was so distorted. The chicken dinner was disgusting. It looked like chicken in brown jello. The omelet was watery. The rice porridge had no flavor. The bathroom ran out of toilet paper within a couple hours."
Cons: "They lost my luggage."
Pros: "Cabin crew is helpful, & I noted they are especially attentive to their elderly passengers & those needing assistance."
Cons: "The food is absolutely disgusting. And this from a national airline of a country renowned for one of the world's finest cuisines. It's an awfully long flight & little to eat. Even the packaged peanuts were poor. Also, deplaning at Guangdong requires use of portable stairs & bus to terminal - they don't use the jetways! This is a pain in the butt - and knees for those with any mobility issues."
Cons: "Vegetarian options would be nice."
Cons: "Food was horrible and entertainment center had to be reset 5 times."
Cons: "flight left 30 mins late and they lost my luggage."

Pros: "overall good. Attendants nice."
Cons: "Just to many stops."

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: "Don't know how to serve a client. Not very responsive, don't give away menu, no wine list."

Pros: "The entertainment was good. The movies were new and fun."
Cons: "When I checked into our flight in Thailand, I requested three connecting seats because I want to take care of my 74 year old father and 66 year old mother. The guy at the check in counter told me that he had arranged three connecting seats for us. However, when we were boarding, we realized that my 74 years old dad was connected to my mom and I! Lucky there were some empty seats and the flight attendants kindly agreed to let us sit together after my dad spoke to one of them."
Pros: "Economy seats were actually pretty comfortable and the staff was very attentive."
Cons: "The vegetarian food was basically unsalted, watery rice and fruit. By the third round of it (long flight w/ 2 dinners and 1 breakfast) I just didn’t eat it. The entertainment also advertises movies and shows that they don’t have. Small selection that could be better."
Pros: "I liked getting to my destination safely."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours, ridiculous. Do better. No excuses."
Pros: "Not much, but the crew were friendly"

Terrible Airline"
Cons: "on august 14，i got an email tell me my airline is china eastern airline. i have waited for chech -in in china eastern airline for 30minutes,the china eastern told me my airline is not china eastern .maybe hainan airline i walked to hainan airline ,it told me it is not their airline....."

Cons: "On time"
Pros: "The crew was good. The flight was quick and direct."
Cons: "So they had a very quick food service then because of turbulence they closed the bathrooms and made everyone stay in their seats. I have 3 little kids and a wife with a small bladder. Over the course of 4 hours they need to use the bathroom sometime. My kids were literally crying because they had..."
Cons: "The time between arrival and departure for the connection flight was too short. Flight was missed. Will be making an official complaint. Why sell flight tickets with no time to transfer. Even before the flight, staff knew i would miss the flight. The sichuan airlines help desk just ignored me when i approached them with the missed flight document (in chinese) .Terrible! I had to book a hotel and another flight out of my own pocket for the airlines mistake."
Pros: "The staff in yangon were extremely helpful and understood my situation. However they were unable to do anything to rectify the issue."
Cons: "The time between arrival and departure for the connection flight was too short. Flight was missed. I will make an official complaint. Why sell flight tickets with no time to transfer. Even before the flight, staff knew i would miss the flight. Still nothing could be done."
Pros: "The direct flight is great! Especially traveling with kids."
Cons: "The flight took 45 minutes longer than scheduled even though we departed on time. Also I have young children and they played some action movie with shooting and killing and It was hard to distract my kids from watching that."
Cons: "I had to pack my laptop too much early - 15 minutes before we started descent. By other airlines it is possible to use it longer"
Pros: "Good cabin staff."
Cons: "A bit cold. - Not an airline problem, but often when a flight comes through a chinese airport late, they will have the transfer path closed so you have to go out as if you want to leave their airport. The immigration officers then want you to apply for visa's and its hard to communicate that you are just wanting to connect to another flight. Maybe they need a procedure for that when a flight comes in late and they have closed the connecting path."
Cons: "Very friendly crew members."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the service personnel was nice and professional."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient. The check-in was smooth and they explained how to get to the gate location. The flight left on-time and arrived early."
Cons: "The plane was very warm and the AC was either turned off or set to a high temperature. There was no cold drinks and no ice on the plane and drink service on the four hour flight was only immediately before and after dinner in a small cup. Bring something to drink with you. Entertainment was a Chinese movie on a small overhead screen with English subtitles that were too small to read. Unlike other flights on the same airline, we were not offered a choice of meals."
Pros: "gate staff very helpful in assigning seats. flight smooth and flight staff competent. Choice of 3 meals in economy. Nonstop flight to our destination a plus."
Cons: "Cannot select seat prior to flight."

Cons: "Food was terrible and not fresh"
Cons: "Delayed. Bad food. No entertainment."
Pros: "Food was excellent. Crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Plane seats were small -- but as expected to be honest with you."
Cons: "It was never made clear in my itinerary that there was a stop at Hangzhou. I didn't realize there was a seperate flight until I checked in at the hotel."
Cons: "My bags never arrived and haven't been found to date"
Cons: "The booking itinerary did not specify that there would be a layover in Jinan. Even though there was, it would have made more sense to allow the continuing passengers to stay on the plane rather than forcing everyone to go through customs at this point."
Pros: "The flight attendants were really nice and the food was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "The time frame. My flight was supposed to leave at 11:50pm. We left at almost 2am. In which case made me late to a layover I had in China which made me miss my last flight to Japan. BUT, luckily, a woman that worked for the airline in China was able to put me on an air China flight to japan, which again in very grateful for!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing, it was completely horrible!!!"
Cons: "Everything was delayed by at least 1 hour. The flight delay was announced at 11pm the day of, but the passengers weren’t situated in a hotel until 3am. And the flight didn’t arrive until 11pm the next day!! A 15hr delay! And because I had a connecting flight, the delay made me have to spend ANOTHER extra night in the airport, AND never compensated me for the connecting flight ticket which I had to purchase another one of."
Cons: "We had to get off the plane in Jinan to go through customs and get back on rather than going straight to Chengdu. In Chengdu we had to claim our checked bags and check in again before boarding to Taipei."
Pros: "The flight attendants were awesome and the food was good."
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "The check in counter in Chengdu doesn't open until 1 1/2 hours before the flight departs."

Cons: "No way to check in on line."
Pros: "Great air crew"
Cons: "Cramped seating. Poor cabin air flow"
Cons: "When I arrived to the airport I was informed that my flight is cancelled. They found me a new flight instead, 40 minutes earlier than the original one. Which was fine. But I didn't get information in advance, and some not nice experience while not knowing if there would be another flight instead of the cancelled one."
Pros: "Flight over Himalayas was breath-taking!"
Cons: "Flew from Chengdu to Kathmandu, through Lhasa. Even though it was the same flight, we had to de-plane in Lhasa and go through security both coming off the plane and twice again before re-boarding the same plane, to the same seats. Probably a China / Tibet thing, but we received no explanation from Sichuan. After this uber-security play, we got back on the same plane and sat for almost 2 hours on the tarmac, even though we were the only plane in the airport! Sichuan served us lunch while still on the ground, but I would have preferred an explanation from the crew for the unreasonable delay."
Pros: "Initial ticketing and boarding was easy. A bit of a fiasco in Lhasa."
Pros: "Great experience. Prompt service and polite staff all around. Nicest flight in China so far."
Cons: "Had 2 layovers that weren't mentioned in our original booking. Absolutely unacceptable. No online checkin either."
Cons: "Flight was three hours late and The luggage count be shipped to lax directly. I had to get my luggage, drag luggage to hotel, and check in again in Hangzhou. They even collected headphones and stoped videos on board half an hour before its landing."
Cons: "Worst airlines I have ever traveled. Crew and airport staff hardly understand English and there is no communication between passengers and airport crew when flight gets cancelled. Please do not select this airlines even if it's $500 cheaper."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave at 8:30pm. We were delayed until 11, then 11:50. At 11:50 we were still not boarding and an argument started about compensation. We were finally boarded at 12:30am. But on the plane we were not given information and continued to sit there for an hour and a half while the plane was further delayed. We finally left around 2:30am, six hours after we were supposed to leave. I missed my ride at Beijing and my first night at the hotel."
Cons: "no vip room"
Cons: "Sichuan Airlines changed the flight time forward to 1525 from 1605 with no notice. The Flight was not posted on the departure board until it was time to check in leaving us confused as to whether the flight was going or cancelled."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Movies could have more selection."
Cons: "Lounge in Lhasa"
Pros: "seat so so"

Pros: "crew are very nice, although we took off late in Beijing. we arrived on time in LAX. lots of legroom on this flight for a 5 foot tall lady. the previous airplane barely fits my 5 foot frame."

Cons: "My flight was canceled and then the time changed 3 times before I finnally got my flight changed to a completely new flight and route. Was suppose to leave Thursday night at 10:40pm and now I’m leaving Saturday morning at 10:30am. Ruined my entire trip."
Cons: "Flight very delayed, no information provided in English."
Cons: "I had a special meal preference as a vegetarian dish. First meal I got was, rice and steamed Napa cabbages without sauce ( little disappointed); second time, they forgot to serve me the vegetarian meal all together. I got chicken dish which I could not consume... I wish I had a crew who could speak English so that I could communicate about the situation, but I just let go of the issue. I am planning to go fasting on my returned ride."
Pros: "I was able to sleep most of the flight it was very comfortable. Flight attendant was courteous"
Cons: "Food was below average"
Cons: "Really Bad Aeevice"
Pros: "Food tasted good."
Cons: "We only got two meals 9 hours apart, on a plane ride 13 hours long! We were starving for nine hours! We only got a drink offering after 6 hours. This made me soo dehydrated and dizzy"
Pros: "While not horrible like delta, United, or American- China Air could definetely step up their game eapecially in regard to hospitality and comfort."
Cons: "The veggie/vegan options were inedible overcooked plain veggies and an unflavored carbohydrate - thank god we brought some food. No entertainment system and the plane was definitely a decommissioned 757 from a 1990s 757."
Cons: "The food was gross. The look and smell of it all was enough to make me just go hungry for the 5 hour flight. Airplane food is not for me."
Pros: "Food is horrible"
Pros: "crew, and boarding were good."
Cons: "food and comfort not too good, entertainment was so so"
Pros: "This time they have someone stood at the international transfer area to help with passengers who only have a short time to board the next flight. My friend told me that she didn't see this kind of arrangement when she was transfer at Beijing a few years ago and she missed her flight and have to wait for the next flight which was 24 hours later."
Cons: "It seems okay at first. After we landed and by the time I get to the baggage claim area and realized that one of my bag was missing. No one provide any explanation as to why this happens. I have to fill out the Property Irregularity Report and specifically told them to send my missing bag to my work address if my bag is found. The agent told me that before they deliver my bag, they are supposed to call. Two days later, their delivery person came to my work place and do not want to wait for the security guard to call up to get me and took off with my bag. He did not call to inform me of the delivery. I left many messages regarding the incident and no more return my calls or attempt to contact me. They really have very bad customer service. 4 days later, by accident, I spoke with one of the agent and she said they can re-delivery my bag. I found out later that they delivered my bag to my work place at 5AM in the morning. Of course I am in bed and not available to receive my bag. At the time of writing this post, I am 9 days without my bag and I don't know when will I ever get the bag. I will never fly with this airline again and will not recommend to anyone."
Cons: "Luggage did not get on the same plane as me from Beijin to Seoul so I was without my luggage for a day. Received no apology from the airline."
Pros: "flying in a B787-9"
Cons: "I didn't know when I was supposed to board or what the process was, and the crew wasn't helpful to me when I asked. Maybe language barrier?"
Pros: "Food was good. Flight attendants were good."
Cons: "Tiny beds in business class with two-across seating so the window passenger has to climb over the aisle passenger. Are they stuck in the 90s? I won't fly with them again. Boarding in Beijing for Manila was a free for all. Business class was not called first. Isn't this why I pay triple the coach fare? No English language newspapers from Los Angeles to Beijing."
Cons: "One suitcase did not make the transfer; food was not good"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Airport in lounge was a waste of time, no wifi, terrible coffee, no showers."
Pros: "it was a very comfortable flight and the crew was friendly and helpful. We were traveling with two small children, so saying it was a comfortable flight is very high praise."

We preloaded games for my 5 year old son on an old iPhone 4 that is not connected to the internet or any cell service or bluetooth or anything and he was not allowed to use it the entire flight. Very frustrating for him and us. I wish this information was clearly provided on the Air China website when we booked the tickets so we could have planned accordingly."
Pros: "Nothing..missed both connections, air china staff were not anywhere in beijing..i was told counter was closed at 10pm and to call a lical reservation number to reschedule my flight for the next day? Seriously..i paid 5k for this ticket..my bags were checked in to my final destination but at the third destination i was told there was no transfer service ( at guangzhou) snd that i needed to claim it and check it back in even though i cleared immigration at beijing..no one speaks english and will send you in circles around beijing airport..bad bad bad"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Almost all of the crew were nice"
Cons: "TV broken pocket that held reading material was ripped and had wire sticking out, crew was friendly"
Pros: "Food was aweful! So bad that I had to get a vegetarian and the vegetarian was taken too literally, one piece of cucumber between two pieces of toast! The crew were not hospitable and nice at all! They would make u uncomfortable if u asked for something! The movies for entertainment, aweful, old and not up to date!"
Pros: "Fare was low."
Cons: "They delayed the flight almost two hours to wait for other people to make the connection. We had stickers put on our shoulders to indicate that we were in a short time window, but it seems that those were badges for us to be taken advantage of by hawkers with mobile carts to pick us up outside security, take us to our gate and then demand cash."
Cons: "Food was bland. Flight attendants are extremely rude."
Pros: "Literally nothing. I guess the crew was nice. Sufficient at least and not unpleasant."
Cons: "Where to start. First off, I have flown budget air carriers with more leg room than this pacific international flight. I do admit I am a taller than average guy, but if you are over 6' tall you will have NO legroom. And I mean none. It is an insulting amount of legroom. My 5'6" wife barely had any room, never mind myself. On my flight back, I requested an emergency exit row seat (as I noticed on the flight over the emergency exit row was filled with old people and young couples with babies/ young children). And was informed it would cost $120 USD per flight per person. My jaw almost hit the floor. You mean to tell me that the emergency exit row - the row where in the case of an emergency you are supposed to physically be able to assist passengers - actually COSTS money to sit in? That is an absolute disgrace. You have to pay for the added responsibility to help in the case of an emergency? Of course, once I was on the flight the emergency exit row was filled with old people and babies. All of course perfectly capable of helping in the case of an emergency. I was, and still am furious. The gall to charge that much money and then give the responsibility to people unable to help? Meanwhile, an able-bodied couple in the 20s is denied and I am cramped in my less-than-acceptable-for-budget-airlines legroom. And the food. Putrid. Inedible. It was somehow overwhelmingly fragrant while far too bland. Its hard to imagine someone putting together that meal and feeling proud. The meals all screamed "I do not care about my customers." In fact, that is the overwhelming feeling I got from Air China. An airline that truly could not careless about their customers. I would not reccommend. Even if they are the cheapest by a far margin. Stay away. Do not go near. Air China is a terrible airline that should be avoided at all costs."
Cons: "Flies on plane. Tv screens not working. Less than a dozen movies to choose from."
Cons: "We couldn't use out phones, all I wanted to do is listen to music I already have save to my phone. The food was horrible."
Cons: "After long, chaotic lines to transfer planes in Beijing to head to Shenzhen I was showing my passport to the security guard, and suddenly he calls for someone, and another guard walks away with my passport. I had no idea what was going on. I wasn't told to follow him, but he had my passport, so I followed the guard to get my passport back, and the guard hands me my passport, laughs, and points upward. I walk upstairs and see a mess of lines. A bunch of flights were canceled due to a small storm. The machines to rebook a flight were broken, so I had to wait in a line for 2+ hours in order to rebook a flight for the following day. We were told that there would be a complimentary hotel, but I waited in a line for an hour to inquire about a hotel room, only to be told where my luggage was. They could have held up a sign saying where everyone's luggage was, instead of misleading us, saying it was a line for a hotel room. My suitcase was in a pile of suitcases from all the flights that were canceled, and was difficult to find. After spending 6 hours at the airport sorting out new travel plans, I ended up with no place to sleep, but fortunately found a friend of a friend to stay with. The next day, I arrived at the airport for my new flight, with no seat assignment. I waited in a long line to get a seat, then went to board the plane, and the flight was delayed 3 hours. Overall, it took 34 hours to arrive in Shenzhen after leaving San Francisco. If I had automatic updates sent to my email, or, if there was signage at the airport giving people information, that would have been helpful for the crowds of confused people. I also might have had a chance to reroute my flight Hong Kong to get in earlier, but I had no idea what was going on. There was terrible communication that was not due to a language barrier."
Cons: "The flight delayed almost five hours.during the time, no broadcast no food no drink. Air china is so bad."
Pros: "Nice plane. Appreciated priority boarding for my son and me. Also lost my phone right before boarding and someone was sent to look for it."
Cons: "Some members of crew were very helpful while others were straight up rude when I asked for assistance."
Pros: "Airline staff"
Cons: "Delayed flights (2 legs, 4 hours) and mishandled luggage"
Cons: "Flight delays and poor service"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Movie offerings were ok."
Cons: "They serve the same food for both meals, and on all other flights. I got sick of chicken and rice, pork and rice, and noodles. The seats are the most uncomfortable I've dealt with on an international flight. And my luggage didn't make the connection for my Beijing-NY flight, so I had to deal with lost luggage after waiting at the baggage claim for a long time. Luckily, I live in NY and could have my luggage delivered later that night. Other people were not so lucky and were told FedEx would get it to them 4 days later. However, having said all that, I feel like you get what you pay for, and I got an incredible deal on this round-trip flight."
Pros: "Again, flight was on time."
Cons: "The staff searched our bags as we boarded the plane and they took away the unopened and sealed bottled water (expensive, I might add) that we bought at the coffee shop directly across from where the plane boarded. I appreciate the extra security but felt this made no sense. The airline had already searched us at several checkpoints going through the airport to our terminal. I had a sore throat and was dehydrated the entire 12 hr flight. I asked the flight attendants for water but all they would give me was a tiny cup. I politely asked for a big bottle and they declined. It was very uncomfortable and I would have really liked to have the bottle of water I had purchased in anticipation of needing it. I fly often and have ever ever had an airline take away water (of all things) purchased once I've passed through security. The flight attendants were also very rude. Perhaps they are overworked."
Pros: "Everything was ordinary. Nothing special."
Cons: "Food was terrible and yuk!. The attendents need to take a course on spoken English and how to be polite . Entertainment set Sucks! Only Chinese stuff. Need to add more English on a international flight. Could do a better job cleaning the toilets !!"
Pros: "New planes n clean cabinet nice service."
Pros: "It's great I'm gonna recommend my friend Air China Thanks again"
Pros: "Timely flights"
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "Nothing at all from start to finish"
Cons: "Bad service, bad food, bad entertainment system, nasty bathrooms, bad service, dirty planes, bad service."
