Cons: "The crew should speak up and wait for answers before moving quickly away with beverages. Seat cushions are hard and thin. movie selections are terrible and few. worst selection ever."
Cons: "Connecting flight in Incheon Airport delayed again, 4th consecutive time this has happened on this particular flight. I think this is done intentionally so airline can combine it with the next flight that departs 50 minutes later based on amount of bookings on each flight."
Pros: "comfort and ease of transfer"
Cons: "food needs a little bit of improvement"
Pros: "FOOD WAS GREAT"
Cons: "BOARDING WAS BETTER THAN MANILA BUT STILL NOT GREAT - NEEDS MORE COMMUNICATION"
Pros: "Already commented in the Hanoi to Seoul part. Sorry."
Cons: "It woul have been better if some of the crew treated everyone fairly. Some of them were kind of rude... and it would have been nice if we were fed more than twice. Me and my family got hungry during the flight and this is the first time that ever happened. We’ve been flying with asiana since 2016zz"
Pros: "The service was hood"
Pros: "Nothing! They made me very upset!"
Cons: "They made me cancel my 6 month stay to a 30 day stay when I arrived at the airport, otherwise they would not allow me on the plane! They said I needed a vista for the length of stay which I always get when I am in Manila for the past 8-10 years that I have been going without any prior warning before I confirmed this booking! I was charged $500.00 to change the departure date! Outrageous!"
Pros: "Cabin, seat, and aircraft comfortable but not at all luxurious."
Cons: "Service was really bad, the toilets were filthy; in this regard probably the worst business class experience in recent years."

Cons: "Seats on the Dreamliner are very hard."

Cons: "Food was okay"
Pros: "We liked the service and food and had plenty of space since the flight was half empty."

Pros: "Business class seats are a lot more comfortable than earlier versions."
Pros: "Good on-demand entertainment system, safe flight"
Cons: "Service is reliable but crew was not as friendly as they used to be. The meals were terrible. Economy seats on the airbus 380 are very crammed. No wifi either!!"
Pros: "Loved the service and comfort, food was exceptional for an airline."
Cons: "Suggest a better selection of movies and tv shows."
Pros: "The airline crew were very helpful in making today comfortable during the long flight."
Cons: "Go around and serve water more often. Two lavatories don’t have water to wash your hands. Please provide liquid/foam hand sanitizers OT wipes at least."
Pros: "Food was great, love the extra leg room as a 6ft tall guy, flight attendants were awesome"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Of all the flights that I’ve taken in Asia this one has been the most comfortable. I had tons of leg room and I like how the seats reclined."
Cons: "I don’t like how you can purchase an additional bag online you can only do it at the counter. And the prices for an extra bag is a little pricy."
Cons: "For whatever reason they had me go to the end of the line even though my ticket was for business class. I wasn’t upset, byt just a little confused. Other than that everyone else was pretty polite."
Cons: "film selection not good enough and not new enough"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Food was great. Would definitely recommend Asiana to my friends and family."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. Seats need new foam."
Cons: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "did not attempt to treat layover passengers with extra comfort. flew HNL to ICN 9-10 hr layover at ICN for 4+ hours, ICN to BKK (final destination). ICN to BKK flight if at all possible should give upgrade to preferred seat, higher or at least offer connecting free seats... no concern for passenger who need rest due to the long haul..."
Pros: "The food was again good and the service was excellent. The entertainment was also good"
Cons: "Fight was so late that i missed my connection. I allowed three hours. The flight was 2 1/2 hours late so there was not time to go threw customs."
Pros: "The plane interior was in much better shape compared to my other Asiana trip. Flight attendants on this plane was much more courteous compared to my other asiana flight"
Pros: "Food was OK but nothing spectacular. Variety of beverage is OK, there was a snack in between meals, overall, the flight is good and by expectation for the price I got for the tickets."
Cons: "the seats are not comfortable,"
Cons: "Sound didn't work on entertainment system And food was not good"
Pros: "It was an easy ride and was comfortable. No problem in using the screen to watch any show or movie."
Pros: "I am a large person, the staff was kind enough to move my seat next to empty seats, since the plane was not full."
Pros: "Friendly crew good ife. Economy will never be spacious but they manage to make it comfortable."
Cons: "Chicken burrito on an intra Asian flight?!? Was looking forward to something Asian."
Pros: "I like the flight crew Filipina very helpful and one Korean Lady help me pulled my luggage over headed."
Cons: "Delayed Flight but it's ok. My connection flight at night time anyway."
Pros: "I liked the flight attendants, and speediness of the flight after we took off. The seats were older but comfortable."
Cons: "Two sets of crying babies in front row seats didn't help things."
Cons: "Seemed like no air conditioning -- very hot the whole trip. Food was very poor -- glad we ate prior."
Pros: "Great food Friendly staff Very affordable decent entertainment"
Cons: "Cramped and a little uncomfortable. Smaller person 5' 3" 145 lbs. Would probably be uncomfortable for people of larger girth. Leg room was great!"
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly. I like the added touch of receiving slippers on your long distance flights. We had a crying baby on one of my flights and I noticed the flight attendant approached the couple and held and rocked the baby. Truly above and beyond service."
Pros: "Enjoyed flying on the upper deck of Asiana's Airbus A380. Seat was spacious and comfortable. Food was adequate and the options were good. Service from the crew was excellent. Entertainment options met expectations."
Cons: "Can't complain about boarding from Seoul to LA, but boarding from LA to Seoul and Manila to Seoul were a bit chaotic. Passengers were confused from the lack of organization, instruction or signs. Cabin temperature was quite warm, to the point of being uncomfortable, on the flight from Seoul to LA."
Pros: "Quick boarding, on time, nice crew, clean plane"
Cons: "After 20 days of returning..movies option hadn't chnged."
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "I though on the website it had wifi. The movies are the same between both flight. The news was two days behind and no direct air.solidfood. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "I absolutely hated how EACH and every flight (4 total) was delayed using this airline."
Pros: "The crew was nice & helpful. Seats were roomy. Washroom was kept clean."
Cons: "A larger selection of movies and t.v. shows would have been better."
Pros: "Empty middle seat so more room."
Cons: "Need more room. Not enough space. Tv was glitchy and didnt work properly . seat uncomfortable"
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "Continue not to crash. Thank you."
Pros: "Air Canada is always a great travel experience."
Cons: "The food is terrible. It's the worst I've had from any airline."
Cons: "The vegetarian meals, they were not enjoyable, we actually couldn’t eat them. I wish we had not gotten vegetarian meals as the regular breakfast was a choice between pancakes or omelet with fresh fruit, which where both vegetarian. They need to make a difference between vegetarian and vegan."
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight, has good entertainment program. Uncomplicated easy boarding."
Cons: "Food for 9 h wish to be better: dinner was cold (you could feel that chicken was warmed in microwave, but pasta was just taken from fridge), breakfast was pathetic. In last seats to many overhead compartments was secured for equipment or occupied by crew"
Pros: "The zone system seems to work well for boarding and the cabin crew on my flight to London were superb, helpful and polite to myself and others, despite a few impatient passengers."
Pros: "The flight was on time check in was simple and quick Staff on board friendly and professional Inflight movies fab Plenty of room on seats clean plane"
Cons: "Nothing all great"
Pros: "I love this flight. Great airplane and great staff. Air Canada international >> air Canada domestic."
Cons: "Ran out of food.."
Pros: "They seemed like a good airline. It was my first time flying with them, and I got upgraded to business class on the very first flight of my trip. What a great first impression! They're quite service oriented, with attendants speaking multiple languages. The in-flight magazine was good but not available on every plane. The food was usually pretty good, and the live map was convenient."
Cons: "All of the flights were late (I had 6 of them on this trip, all thru Air Canada, and not a single one departed on time). All of my layovers were long, except one, which was planned to be about an hour but ended up being less than 30min. That one was a pain: had to go through Canadian customs and then run across the Toronto airport, but thankfully my next flight was still boarding - and ended up running late because they had to de-ice the plane. One of the flights ran late, and as we were reaching the gate a passenger felt the need to yell racist/ignorant comments at a fellow passenger who wouldn't sit down, and then the flight attendant - overall that was a real shame."
Cons: "Ended up missing this connecting flight to Calgary . Our plane left 45 minutes late from Phoenix because of a gas spill so when we got to Vancouver from Phoenix, we had to go through customs which took extra time. When we first landed in Vancouver and before we even got off the plane, we had 5 minutes to board onto our next flight which obviously was not going to happen. We rushed through customs and still might have been able to board our flight at the last possible minute except the staff at the airport led us to somehow get out of the secure area and have to go through security again before going to our gate. That took so much extra time. This never should have happened. When you get off the plane and have a connecting flight, there is always a way to get to the gate to board without having to go through security again. When we finally made it to our gate for our connecting flight, our plane had left and we were told to go to the air canada service desk. There was about 10 to 15 of us that had missed our connecting flight because of this so the 2 staff at the desk were trying to help us all but had to wait for their manager to come and confirm they could give us another flight which took quite a bit longer than I thought. We ended up getting booked on standby on a flight straight from Vancouver to Saskatoon in 2 hours which was our final destination, but never was told that because of all this headache, we should have grabbed our luggage. We thought our luggage was going to go on without us on the flight we missed but apparently if you do not get on your flight they don’t send your bags which makes sense. We also had thought for a second that maybe our luggage didn’t go on the flight from Vancouver to Calgary but if it didn’t then someone would most likely put it on the flight to Saskatoon. We should have asked about it but they should also have mentioned it when we were in a panic. And I understand you can’t put extra people on a flight that is booked, but what if the plane we were on standby for was full and we had to wait even longer .. could have taken us a day to get home when this wasn’t our fault we missed our flight, but was air Canada’s."
Pros: "Organised zones for boarding"
Cons: "i am à French National ( France) living in UK. After a confusing conversation from the officer not understanding that I was not travelling to France ( assumption) I was asked to show evidence I had the right to enter UK !!!! I explained I lived there permanently ; I was then asked why French hate English so much!!! To which I explained only narrow minded people would believe so and that the style of her comment were not appropriate . I explained my children were half French half British and that her comment was offensive ."
Pros: "Will use again"
Cons: "Airline food has always been poor no matter which airline you travel. Be more liberal with the drinks trolley."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "Good leg room. Staff friendly and helpful. Really great flight."
Cons: "Horrible customer service from check in through to the flight attendants. Needed to download app on my phone for an international flight in order to watch movies. Was very unimpressed with the experience."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No TV monitors and food was bad"
Pros: "The plane took off and landed on time."
Cons: "The food was terrible and the staff were in there own world and not particularly polite. Hand luggage was not managed so the bins were rammed. Some people had 3 pieces of large hand luggage. Food was the worse I have had on any flight. I would rather pay and have something edible. On 2 of my 3 flights the staff were so wrapped up in there own life's, they did not manage to finish the safety checks before taking there seat. Overall a poor experience."
Cons: "Air Canada offers this flight DAILY. Yet somehow the boarding was the most excruciating tedious I’ve had to endure. Passengers who needed assistance boarding seemed to have to deal with haphazard organisation, and the fact that they seemed surprised so many people brought carry-on luggage that the bins filled up is laughable. Changed my return flight to Alaska Air."
Cons: "My seat assignment was changed without my knowledge. There was a charge for my one suitcase. Most other airlines do not charge for a suitcase unless it is more then one."
Pros: "Late departure due to an incompetent airport crew (the guys who fuel the plane) . The pilot keep us well informed about the delay. Since we left Vancouver late, we arrived late and had to sit on the runway for 30 minutes until we could get a gate at LAX. Again the pilot keep us informed and apologized for the inconvenience, The staff was very friendly."
Pros: "My good friend John came to pick me up even though it arrived at 1 am instead of 9 pm....."
Cons: "The wait for plane to be ready. There was a technical problem which delayed it. They gave us a discount coupon and I don't even know what kind of discount we will get. They should have just given us a free one way for a similar route."
Pros: "It was a normal flight. Only one hour."
Cons: "Snack options could have been better, only a biscuit."
Pros: "Clearing immigration in Vancouver is very convenient"
Cons: "Food choices are limited and expensive."
Pros: "Reasonably good all around."
Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat on this flight and wished I hadn't. Whole rows of seats were empty and I would have been more comfortable in my original seating, according to the seating plan during online check in the entire plane was booked out but for a few seats."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by roughly 2 hours allegedly due to construction at the Toronto Pearson airport. I recognize that this was possibly not Air Canada's fault but the delay was still unforeseen."
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff"
Cons: "The plane was a bit dated so the seats were smaller the Luthansa"
Pros: "Nothing. This was the least pleasant flying experience I've ever had."
Cons: "1. They scheduled me for an overnight layover FOR NO REASON when there were multiple flights leaving earlier to my ultimate destination. 2. The airplane food gave me food poisoning and I had to spend the night in the ER. 3. My flight the next morning was delayed by 3hrs. Meanwhile, other flights to the same destination were taking off with no problem."
Pros: "Overall very very good - could offer more water throughout flight."
Cons: "Pressed the service bell mutiple over 30 minutes, no one came. Had to get out of my seat and walk to the back of the plane where I found all the attendants having a chat. Not even a sorry from them."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times without any explanation or update from Air Canada at all. Everyone was at the gate ready to board at 6:50. The screen didn't indicate that it was going to be delayed. There was no one from the crew or AC at all at the gate until 8:30. No announcement, whatsoever. Then when we finally arrived at SFO, the plane was circling above SFO in a storm for another one hour and fifteen minutes..."
Pros: "Food ok crew and staff very helpful"
Pros: "waiting on the plane for hours after we arrived to LA wasn't to great. Also it was frustrating to watch the plane get delayed over and over again, the food wasn't too good, the seats felt like cardboard and it was too packed in the plane...but other then that, it was spectacular"
Pros: "The plane was on time, boarding was orderly and smooth, service was excellent, and they did a good job on the weather. As a pilot, I would rate it an all around excellent flight."
Pros: "screen and interface"
Cons: "back of seat/head rest uncomfortable, average food in very small quantities films not refreshed fast enough, same in and out flights"
Pros: "Short flight. Simple. Smooth."
Cons: "There was a short delay because crew was caught up in security."
Cons: "They need a better system for boarding. It took forever to get us all on board. And it was hard to hear which zone they were boarding since the passengers were so noisy. there should've been lanes for the different zones so they could usher us all in orderly. It was a chaotic mess without lanes. There was no entertainment if you didn't download their app onto your electronic device. No snacks were offered either. I didn't pay for a meal but it would've been nice to have some pretzels or something like that. The controls for the lights, and attendant call button were on the hand rest. It was very uncomfortable since it was a raised section, and more than once I turned on the light without meaning to do so. I won't fly Air Canada Rouge ever again, if I can help it."
Pros: "At $320usd per person per direction, you can't beat the price thanks to whatever magical gremlins Kayaks employs to fix prices for them...we flew Air Canada and we'e very pleased with their fleets new addition of 787 dream liners. Do yourself a favor and find a flight on this aircraft. From takeoff to landing, there was never a question about our safety and comfort, and the sleek, organic aesthetic of the dream liner somehow met a new standard for both ergonomy and tech/entertainment. I especially found the sub ports in my personal screen useful."
Cons: "Transatlantic flights are too long. Hurry up Science, magic me up some low earth orbit/sonic+ future jets already...Jaesus..."
Pros: "Good seats"
Cons: "Luggage was lost from Vancouver to Seattle with absolutely no communications and I had to chase it's whereabouts the next day"
Pros: "The plane, which was American-made. Smooth ride in the air, no baggage issues."
Cons: "The crying children in front of me, the hour and a half delay, and the late dinner service. Dinner came at 8:30, after staring at those with special meals eat and finish an hour before everyone else, they should wait with the rest of us. Breakfast was pretty lackluster. Their online app and check in is awful- they should hire new coders and UX designers to increase functionality."
Pros: "Comfortable, well maintained aircraft. Good entertainment. Friendly crew. Boarding process was well conceived. They separated seating zones into different queues, and turned back people who attempted to board out of order."
Cons: "Breakfast was underwhelming for an international flight. Dinner was just average. The crew seemed to have trouble responding to things like...people using restrooms late during the descent, passengers making themselves a little too "at home" and thereby disturbing their neighbors, and repeated chimes due to an errant elbow on a call button...the little things. They are things you don't notice when a crew is highly attentive, as you find on Cathay Pacific, Lufthansa, or Air New Zealand. The crew were friendly, but not quite in charge."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight - had the luxury of a row to myself in economy. Food and drink service was great and the crew were very friendly. The 787 is a pleasure to fly on."
Cons: "More movies and TV - flew with Air Canada 6 times in 6 weeks so I was starting to run out of entertainment options."
Pros: "Excellent flight"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Clean aircraft."
Cons: "Seats being marked @ $ 16 and $42 upto 24 hours before flight"
Pros: "once i got through checking in everything was ok"
Cons: "if i knew the name of the man i talked to at checkin i would make a complaint specifically about him. i lost my passport a few days before coming home and went to the united states consulate where they told me to bring a printed copy of my passport and the united states boarding patrol would let me back into the united states. the man at the checkin didn't want to let me through to even speak to the united states border patrol and told me the consulate was wrong. i almost missed my flight because of his stubborn arrogance. once past him i was able to explain what happened and show what identification I had and everyone was very nice to me."
Pros: "Crew was nice and very helpful.. Nice selection of movies.."
Cons: "Food could be improved.. no flavor and it looked over cooked.. Drinking cups could be switched to paper cups.. or recycled one's.. Packaging and overall rubbish could also be reduced. 777 seats were to narrow.. bigger seats are a must for such long flights. Internet access could be free.. with a limit of course.."
Pros: "The person we sat next to. And the great flying of the pilots."
Cons: "I am handicapped. Requested a wheel chair from the curb . Upon arrival, no wheel chair. we waited and waited. Then my friend went and got a wheel chair for me. we then joined our two friends, who also had wheelchairs. however, they had first class and was taken immediately to the first class lounge. I was waiting forever behind the check-in desk in Vancouver. I then put my bags on my chair and used the chair like a walker! Still no help. When I asked for help I was told that I was early and I could wait. Not the right answer. I was told to be at the airport 2 1/2 hrs. early which I was. Until I got to the woman at the boarding desk at E84, I was treated terribly. Since we travel with our friends we had hoped to at least see them. No way. Air Canada mad sure of that. also Not a peanut unless we spent money!!!"
Pros: "On board facilities and service"
Cons: "That i showed up in maple time and the plane was oversold, then they put me on another flight which made my pick up at another airport costly!"
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 boarding process was chaos and when we finally boarded, the seats were extremely uncomfortable. There also wasn’t any choice of entertainment and the movie that was playing had no way to have audio (no headphone jacks to plug into)"
Pros: "Flight seat"
Cons: "Food service"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours, ridiculous. Do better. No excuses."
Pros: "Not much, but the crew were friendly"
Cons: "The airline was late in take off for some unknown reason (nothing to do with weather). Flight too be late and we missed out connecting flight.They demanded we purchase a new ticket for the next leg of the flight. Furthermore, then they cancelled the rest of the return flight. Terrible Airline"
Cons: "Was a decent and modest flight."
Pros: "New plane. And now online check-in is now available"
Cons: "Looks like they missed a snack in between."
Pros: "new airplane"
Cons: "wish they had online check-in service in Los Angeles."
Pros: "The crew was very frindly. Tha craft is very clean"
Cons: "Food for non-Chinese passengers"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Food was not great"
Cons: "No AC in aircraft during taxi boarding. We were taxi for 30 min. Extremely warm. Entertainment systems did not work. Flight attendants did not appear friendly or polite."
Cons: "Food, entertainment, not boarding in the middle of the tarmac, seat quality, no entertainment options."
Pros: "The crew and the food."
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..."
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."
Cons: "The check in staff extremely rude and unprofessional. You can’t check your bag into your final destination You also must go thru immigration and customs in Chengdu"
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."
Pros: "Plane departed on time. There was food service and 2 beverage services."
Cons: "long wait to get to our destination gate."
Pros: "Flight boarded quickly and was on time. Food of fair to average quality was served. Very nice to be offered blankets and a second round of beverages."
Cons: "Delayed. Bad food. No entertainment."
Pros: "The crew were super. They were friendly, efficient, and well-dressed. Boarding was orderly. Food service too. The movies were mostly visual jokes and high drama which was perfect since it was a shared screen and not in everyone's language."
Cons: "The plane was a bit old and the seats too close together. But it was clean and tidy."
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."
Cons: "Most of the crew was not skilled with English (both comprehension and pronunciation) so it was difficult to communicate or to understand instructions. The flight was also delayed for an hour, which could have been avoided if the airline staffed more people for check-in or streamlined the check-in process since that was the only bottleneck preventing passengers from being on time."
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."
Pros: "Sichuan is a good basic airline. No frills but they get the job done. Our flight was on time and the staff very professional"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Good basic airline with no frills, but who needs them for such a short flight?"
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."
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: "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: "timeliness of boarding polite and helpful crew"
Cons: "We had to get off to go through immigration"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Organization is poor, food is aweful, seats are bad"
Pros: "Crew was efficient and friendly. Boarding was quick and painless. They served lunch that was fairly good standard food. For a specialty Chinese airline the English was quite good and entertainment choices were varied enough with English (foreign) movies and shows. Subtitles were available as well. The aircraft itself was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment was a little lacking due to it being a Chinese specialty flight but there were enough shows and movies in English it wasn't a huge issue. The shows/movies were maybe a little of the not popular sort but, again, they were entertaining."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Staff was friendly. Food was delicious. Boarding was quick, once we started."
Cons: "Boarded late and departed late. Couldn't use cell phones in airplane mode."
Pros: "I thought service was outstanding and efficient .... like they passed out a box of food with water.....rverybody got one .... fast and efficient"
Cons: "My ticket from point a to point B presuming the entire flight would be on an airplane and I would end up on the destinations airport Wrong! Found out the last leg of the journey was by bus, ended up being dumped off in the middle of nowhere. No where near the airport"
Pros: "Friendly, attentive, attractive crew."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment was lacking good selection of English movies."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours without advance notice. For a 4:30 am flight. Passengers were already at the airport around 2am. Only to depart at 6am. No sleep. No food and very uncomfortable. Would be better to give heads up ahead of time"

Cons: "Very unorganized and dirty inside cabin"
Cons: "We did not receive the seats we chose months prior when we originally booked. The crew was not engaged and unhelpful. There were no veggie options so we did not eat. We received buns and desert. Terrible service overall."

Cons: "2 days of delays and unorganized at times"
Pros: "Good flight!"
Pros: "The free wifi!"
Cons: "The absurd emergency aisle seat fee. Nobody sat in the aisle the entire flight. I’m a very tall person, not a tiny Asian who can sit comfortably side by side to people with the person in front of me having his chair back the entire way for 14 hours!"
Pros: "The crew, the food, the entertainment, all of the things onboarding are excellent. Very comfortable!"
Pros: "The food was amazing two hot meals and a couple of snacks."
Cons: "Economy is not the way to travel on an extended flight, aisle seat is bearable but otherwise a fail in the comfort side."

Cons: "Well it's a small flight from Shanghai to Bangkok and no entertainment on board."

Cons: "No use of cell phones or battery chargers in flight (not even in airplane mode)."
Cons: "Didn't even get into that"

Cons: "Delayed departure with no estimated time available."
Cons: "You are not allowed to use your phone even in flight mode. Food is disgusting"
Pros: "On time on all flights. Delay at Shanghai airport on take off. I should take a day or 2 stay in Sha too."
Cons: "On my return flight, someone change my seat assignment from toyko to Shanghai. And Shanghai to San Francisco . I reserved my seat assignment back in October. Am I suppose to call in to confirm seat assignment again?"
Cons: "Long flight. They don't like anyone opening the window shades but I would have liked to see the Alaska coastline we flew over."
Cons: "The airport was diffulvt to menuvuer."
Pros: "crew members are nice, cheap price"
Cons: "super long lay over in shanghai. there is basically nothing to do inside the shanghai airport. it was so boring, the food is not so good"
Pros: "Getting out of Shanghai, after having to pay for flights, we had already paid for"
Cons: "We have no idea how to get a refund on our two paid for fist/business class tickets??? Help!!!"
Pros: "Lot's of entertainment options on in-flight console. Also, the price point was very reasonable."
Cons: "The crew often ignored requests and not enough meals/ snacks were served for such a long flight."
Pros: "I was lucky enough to travel on the 777-300 new config business. Pyjamas to boot, never had those in biz class before. Hats off to China Eastern, exceeded my expectations and beat the competition. Gutted my flight is with Lufthansa from Shanghai to Frankfurt. Will definitely be looking to fly with them again. Can't comment on economy as didn't get chance to look around."
Pros: "Flights were on time, quiet, and we were fed sufficiently. We purchased tickets separately, so requested to sit together when we checked in at the airport. They accommodated us to sit together for the first flight, but did not try for the second flight, which is mildly annoying. Leg space was great int he exit rows and pretty average in non-exit rows."
Cons: "The airline lost my travel partner's luggage. Despite a 5 hour layover, her bag did not make it to our final destination with us. While I understand this happens, what was really frustrating was the airline's, and lost luggage department's ability to provide any information about where her bag was and when it would arrive. They were unresponsive for 3 days. They did not follow up, though we tried calling, no one answered nor returned our messages. We finally got information after returning to the airport in person, and they bag was delivered within 24 hours of that in-person follow up."
Cons: "They lost my luggage, told me they couldn't find it for days and that they weren't responsible for returning it to me, and they gave me no stipend to buy soap, toothpaste etc so I had to cover all these expenses myself during the 2 days until I finally got my bag back."
Cons: "Cramped. Creepy crew and food wasn't great."
Cons: "1. The flight delay. 2. Horrible food. 3. In-flight entertainment set wasn't working. When we told the stewardess about it, it wasn't addressed till the flight was about to land. Which was by then, rather useless. They gave a a complimentary bottle of wine though."
Pros: "The airplane was new and the seating was spacious in economy class"
Cons: "It is a common theme with Chinese companies. They spend millions on big items and then totally ignore the customer front end. Go into any big shopping center in China and you'll get lost because the signs are not there or not clear enough, elevators are too few and too slow, things are just illogical. Same thing with China Eastern. I have been flying them for over a decade and the company still hasn't managed to invest a fraction of the money the assets cost into customer front end. The online checkin was not possible. The checkin in Frankfurt was almost 2 hours because not enough counters were open. The food in flight was what you think bad airline food is supposed to taste like. The layover in PVG was brief but the transfer was disorganized.. So if you want an efficient flight without any creature comforts and extras for an attractive price I can recommend China Eastern. For anything else look elsewhere..."
Cons: "Domestic portion of the flight was first canceled then rescheduled then delayed. This issue keeps occurring and should not be recommended on Kayak!"
Pros: "Very comfortable space, lie-flat sleeping, power outlets"
Cons: "Mediocre service and food. Limited movies."
Cons: "2 hr delay on each segment for no apparent reason. Our flight to Beijing had a layover in Shanghai and we had to gather all our belongings, deplane, go through immigration and customs. All the while having airport officials yell at us "fast fast fast". I was with children and my elderly parents. Awful start to our China trip. Flight attendants were rude."
Pros: "The plane was new, the movies/videos were good, and the food was OK."
Cons: "Delay, Delay, Delay. Every leg of our trip was delay, and they don't tell you why, or for how long. We had a 4-hour delay at JFK. We almost miss our connecting flight at PVG to ICN. Luckily that one also had a two-hour delay. Coming back, same thing. All other airlines on the board had no problem except China Eastern. Good thing ICN was one of the best airport terminal we have ever been to and able to pass time shopping and eating while we wait. But JFK was boring. Will avoid flying China Eastern again. Not dependable."
Cons: "I always prefer asian airlines"
Pros: "Food - Free dinners even for economy class. Entertainment - Every seat has a TV that offers multiple languages and tons of blockbuster movies from a variety of genres. They also offer many television shows in multiple languages and genres and video games. Roomy- The seats are as non-roomy as any airplane. However, the flight attendants don't give you any trouble when you want to just get up and walk around and talk to people. It gives the plane a roomy atmosphere. You can go to spacier sections of the plane to hang out."
Cons: "Because the first flight was delayed, we had to run like mad men to our connecting flight or else we wouldve missed it."
Pros: "Crew was alright, food okay, leg room acceptable. Good part, plane was so big that enable us to pick and choose where to sit."
Cons: "For instance be more careful with the luggage. They lost my luggage and don't know where it is."
Pros: "Very friendly crew and ground staff. Excellent food onboard, great entertainment system, and it was easy to get some rest. The business class layout is ideal when traveling with a companion."
Cons: "The seats feel a little cramped due to limited stowage space and a fairly narrow legrest. Lounge in Beijing lacked air conditioning."
Pros: "Food was good! Crew spoke great English."
Cons: "6 hour plane ride with no TVs/entertainment options were unclear, and no meal from PEK-HKT. Outdated entertainment system on 11hr flight from YVR-PEK. Beijing airport was an absolute maze, we got sent in 8 different directions from the moment we got off our plane!"
Pros: "Great price and reasonable to good service for a family on a budget, this worked well."
Cons: "Both flights had delays based on weather, and it seemed the communication around it could have been better."
Pros: "The crew was “matter of fact”."
Cons: "thank you for all services"
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."
Pros: "Crew was nice enough..."
Cons: "No video entertainment on board. Would have been nice to have been able to watch a movie."
Cons: "Ca Needs to be more clear on who can get a transit entry , I with a US Passport didn't get one and stuck in pek airport for 25 hours ,"
Cons: "Flight very delayed, no information provided in English."
Pros: "excellent service,help, clean, comfort, and considerable"
Cons: "Safety, Comfort and nice service"
Pros: "Good to have a footrest. Toilets in good condition."
Cons: "Low entertainment options Low quality of food. Same sauce used for both the meals. Didn't smell that great."
Pros: "The on time performance also inflight Meals"
Cons: "Check in for Departure"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Had electrical outlet between seats on one of my international flights (not the return flight). Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Seats felt close together. Crew doesn't really return smiles. Food wasn't great. English movies that weren't "B" level were few on my first flight, better on my return flight. Not much refreshment in the 7 or so hours between meals. Did not have electrical outlets between seats on one of my international flights. English translations of announcements were difficult to understand."
Cons: "Our first segment was delayed and when we landed, no priority was given to get off the plane and run for next flight. We barely made it. Got to Dubai for a wedding and our luggage didn’t make it. There were five of us flying together. No one got their bags. We landed at 1030 pm and went to out first event that night in the same track suit I flew in. Awful airline. Never again."
Pros: "The flight attendant crew is pretty good. They don’t speak great English and when they are working they are short and not so courteous, however after they have served and a bit more relaxed they are pleasant."
Cons: "Ticketing staff are horrendous to be polite. There is no such thing as customer service. Checked in online and had seat confirmation and when I was at the booth my connection flight had me sitting somewhere completely different. I showed the email confirmation to the ticketing agent and she said that’s not a confirmation and would have nothing to do with it. I quickly realized i was going to get no where so left it."
Pros: "Overall all basic comforts we're provided at reasonable price."
Cons: "Not Much options for vegetarian food."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Plain delayed and connection missed. Should not sell tickets with short overlays."
Pros: "Flight was good , webjet promised me aisle seats but did not deliver."
Cons: "Bejing airport is unfriendly, the staff are rude and the currency exchange is a joke. They gave me exactly half the value of my dollar ."
Cons: "Very poor service was very bad air hostess very rude"
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: "Flight departed at 7.55 am, was about 2 hours - no real breakfast was served, just a roll and a muffin."
Cons: "Everything els was disapointing"
Cons: "the transfer process for 'transit stops' in Shanghai was cumbersome as there is not 'transfer' counter from AirChina to assist you. Everyone had to pass custom as new arrival foreigners, wait for '24-144hr transit visa check', go out of custom to arrival point, then re-check-in at AirChina counter as new departure, go through security again and be stamped with a departure visa check!! If you have less than 2hr transit stop, be sure you tell Chinese airport agents to expedite your process, esp if you have checked-in luggages! Good luck!"
Pros: "Vegan meals"
Cons: "Long layover in China Consideration for others 11 hrs is way to much time in the airport"
Pros: "I like it most that we don’t need to get the luggage out in Beijing or get the boarding pass again in Beijing. It’s very convenient."
Cons: "There was a delay of the connection flight and for half an hour, we were told flight time is TBD. I’d expect at least an estimate of the new boarding time."
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: "My bag was lost and was not returned to me until 48 hours later."
Cons: "The air China flight attendants are some of the rudest people I have encountered. They were extremely unhelpful and one went so far as to sigh and roll her eyes at me. Our flight was also delayed for four hours with no explanation, while we all sat on the plane waiting. Finally they made us all get off of the plane issued us new tickets and then we got back on. The whole process was rediculous. The seat space was smaller than usual and the plane was very dirty. It was also the worst airplane food I have ever tasted. I would definitely recommend not flying air China. K"
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: "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."
Pros: "Calm boarding process. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Seats are smaller than most international flights. Entertainment was non-existent. Food was not interesting, but sufficed."
Pros: "Seats are wider. Pilot is very good."
Cons: "No movies. Slow boarding process."
Cons: "Airline never gave update about the delay. Staff left the boarding counter without informing the passenger what is going on."
Cons: "The video selections had limited appeal to westerners."
Pros: "Was not terrible but would not seek a flight on air china."
Cons: "Old seats and poor entertainment. Was fine. And they didn't get our bags to our connecting flight."
Pros: "They accommodated to my vegetarian diet"
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight because of late landing"
Pros: "Good staff."
Cons: "Seats are tight if two large people are sitting next to each other. HAd to wait a long time to check in. Function of airport though."
Pros: "Brand new comfy and clean plane."
Cons: "I would have liked to watch some of the really interesting sounding Chinese programs on the in flight entertainment system, but it did not offer English Subtitles. Something about the service lacks a bit of sparkle. I would have liked to have been offered some of the bells and whistles like a toothbrush or better headphones for the entertainment system."
Cons: "I could nos use my phone even though I took off the SIM card I did not get a good explanation"
Pros: "entertainmanet was pretty good. crew was kind and give us enough pillows and blankets."
Cons: "around middle of flight, bathroom condition became too smelly and was difficult to use."
