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: "cabin crew continued to smile despite conditions"
Cons: "the stewardess were filling themoses if hot water instead if pre flight duties. even after pushing away from gate i could see 8 passengers with trays down making soup with boiling water, brought by stewardess, and additional ones eating hot soup."
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: "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: "The hyphen in first name separated name into first and middle. We canceled flight because airline wanted to charge for correcting the name that their system won’t take."
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"
Pros: "people very nice"
Cons: "food can hv been better"
Cons: "Food, entertainment, not boarding in the middle of the tarmac, seat quality, no entertainment options."
Pros: "Crew is so polite!"
Cons: "No wifi, no individual entertainment screens, no power. TV screens looked like an old VHS tape (static)."
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: "Good price and had entertainment and meals that were tasty."
Cons: "Too cramped, not much on the television, seat did not go far back enough to sleep for a long flight."
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: "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: "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"
Pros: "Great experience. Prompt service and polite staff all around. Nicest flight in China so far."
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: "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: "Friendly, attentive, attractive crew."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment was lacking good selection of English movies."
Pros: "Crew great. Seat is hard"
Cons: "Softer seats"
Pros: "The crew is amazing."
Cons: "The quality of the food could be better."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful with boarding and very friendly and hard-working."
Cons: "Entertainment system kept resetting duing the first couple of hours during the flight but otherwise was good."
Pros: "I was very impressed with the planes on both legs of my journey. Extremely modern, clean, and comfortable. The service was also exceptional. Personal whole being extremely efficient. Thank you to all the cabin crew."
Cons: "The food on my flight was not the best. The appetizer and desert was great. The vegetables on the side were at best edible. But my main dish of beef filet was difficult to eat. The red wine was terrible but the white whine and sparking wine were decent."
Pros: "I hated the airline!"
Cons: "The food was terrible and the staff was not nice at all. Worst airline."
Pros: "Lots of room”for stuff”, so you aren’t digging in your attaché case all the time, almost like a desk area. We had eaten prior to departure so I asked to be served the meal later and they had no problem."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Plane was clean and in good repair."
Cons: "Food for two meals was substandard. Few non-action/comic book movies. A few more movies for grownups, please,"
Pros: "Price of biz class is attractive but it’s good and entertainment could be better for western travelers"
Cons: "Limited Western food menu in box class with many choices not available Eggs were like cement Most flight crew speak limited English and hard to understand"
Cons: "We traveled in business class there was a flight attendant that was very rude."
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: "I’m very disappointed with China eastern airlines. Despite making the request during reservation, my mom who has bad knees did not get wheelchair. Staff was very rude and did not provide wheelchair and she had to walk a lot with pain."
Pros: "Pilot did a great job on takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Pilot had to come out and ask for the crew start boarding the passengers (this was 20 minutes past boarding time). Crew was a bit incompetent but while I was in the Philippines, this seemed like the norm for everything involving customer service..."
Pros: "Crew were really fantastic. Very accommodating on requests."
Cons: "First time i flew early in day to vietnam.. not airlines fault just threw me off"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Old plane , a bit beat up"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and polite. There was movies, TV shows, etc to watch. The food was decent for airline food."
Cons: "2 days of delays and unorganized at times"
Pros: "It was 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 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."
Pros: "the goodness"
Cons: "the ungoodness"
Cons: "Flew in business. Absolutely no understanding of service. Incompetent and lazy crew that speaks extremely limited English. Food is very basic, drinks are worse than in economy of good airlines such as Emirates."
Cons: "Headphones provided Food Comfort of seats Use of cell phones ok airplane mode"
Cons: "Didn't even get into that"
Cons: "Seats were tight and there was not a good variety of movies"
Pros: "No delay and arrived on time"
Cons: "Connecting flight took too long"
Pros: "Cheapish flight"
Cons: "Late. Dropped passengers into pouring rainstorm giving us each a napkin for protection. Airport in Shanghai is consistently dirty, poorly marked and mostly unfriendly. Big gobs of snotty spit in the sink. Yummy!"
Pros: "CE has B777 to/from JFK which are up to date and comfortable. The biz class is similar to all others, lie flat and more than enough entertainment. The flight attendants are fantastic, always willing to do what ever they can."
Cons: "Often you must deplane/board from the tarmac on connecting flights in PVG. Of course only an issue during in climate weather or if you have difficulty with steps. They are building another terminal so hopefully in a year or so all flights can board form the terminal."
Pros: "It is a fairly low cost carrier."
Cons: "It takes the airport staff literally hours to accomplish tasks that should take a few minutes like replacing a ticket the airline lost! Entering China just to transit through took over 2 hours waiting in line and caused to miss our next flight. Then the airline another 3 hours to get us rebooked. Their processes are agonizingly slow. Usually they have a single agent serving when they obviously need 4 or 5. Never again."
Pros: "Fast-tracked us through Shanghai airport with a personal handler for a tight connection. He knew all the back routes and which border agent could put us first in line. No problem even though connection was boarding as we were disembarking arrival flight. Lounge at JFK superb."
Cons: "No control over air con vents at seat. Plane uncomfortably stuffy for us...asked to turn down temp and they did for awhile."
Cons: "The 1 hour delay for take off"
Cons: "I couldn't use my phone on the plane even in airplane mode."
Cons: "When I came to the airport in Shenzhen I was told that my ticket was booked but not issued, called the number to US support and got the answer that they would issue the ticket immediately, it was in que?? 5 minutes later the lady at China eastern support told me you guys cancelled the ticket? This is 45 min before my flight was supposed to leave and you cancel my ticket without informing me? I bought a new ticket from China Eastern. What is wrong with you? How can a company fail this flat? //Mattias"
Pros: "Compared with airlines in the US, here you actually get food, even for a short flight"
Cons: "You are not allowed to use your phone even in flight mode. Food is disgusting"
Pros: "Cheap, economical option. Swift processes."
Pros: "Vegan meal was surprisingly good. Crew was generally nice."
Cons: "Business class was basically empty but no one got an upgrade. They told us there were no available seats for my husband and I to sit together, so I was alone with a one-year-old on my lap with my husband in a different row. Once we already boarded, we saw that there were a lot of empty seats and we could have taken the car seat on. It was too late for that, but we did manage to talk someone into moving to our (better) seat so that we could be together in a 3-seater as a family."
Pros: "Planes are clean, including restrooms. First flight (Guangzhou - Beijing) was nice new Airbus with entertainment systems in the back of each seat. (Unfortunately they stopped working 3/4 of the way through the flight.)"
Cons: "Guangzhou to Beijing - departed 1 hour late Beijing to Xian - departed 20 minutes late Xian to Guangzhou - departed 1 hour & 10 minutes late. Guangzhou to Beijing - nice plane, entertainment system failed, crew couldn't fix. Crew had very strange rules about "safety", freaked out about my son wearing earbuds during takeoff. Xian to Guangzhou - weak entertainment options, cut off two different movies in the middle."
Pros: "Crew was nice as always. Appreciated them telling person before to put chair in upright position just while I ate. Food was great too. Definitely tip top for airline food and better than anything domestic airline, of course."
Cons: "Boarding was a little bit weird because it seemed non-English speakers were getting slightly different directions, but that's all. Only knocked off a star for comfort because it was economy, but really liked the spacious overhead bins."
Cons: "No more suggestion."
Pros: "For the most part the flight was everything I hope it would be. No major complaints."
Cons: "Might flight was delayed by an hour, which was not too bad. We were kept waiting at the bottom of the stair, while standing on the runway at the plane. Were told flight was delayed do to wind, but we could see other flights taking off. Thought we were going to be taken back to the waiting area, but fortunately someone finally got the bright idea to let us just wait on board the plane. We all boarded and placed our carry on items overhead. Sat on the plane for about 40 minutes. Then an additional maybe 20 or 30 passengers boarded, who had not at the gate at boarding time. This was probably the REAL reason the flight was delayed."
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: "Crew was nice. Flight was an hour late getting off the ground."
Pros: "Not much to like"
Cons: "Long, confusing boarding process. Always get bused to the airplane instead of direct walk way. Unfriendly attendants. The foods are terrible. Essentially no entertainment system. Just a boring mediocre airline that I will try my best to avoid in the future. By the way, transiting process in any Chinese airport is a nightmare."
Pros: "The chairs recline fairly far which makes the trip a bit more palatable. Movies and in flight entertainment are decent."
Cons: "There was nothing exceptional about this flight or airline. It is the cheapest way to get to and from the Asian continent so I did not expect much to begin with. The crew members are bland and do not go out of there way to accommodate any request. If you have dietary restrictions, make sure to indicate that when booking your ticket or some time before your flight. They have mostly pork and chicken options....which doesnt work well for vegetarians, vegans, pescatarians, kosher etc. All in all take this airline for the cheap prices and not for any type of experience."
Pros: "There was no one in the seat beside me so I had a bit more space to stretch out and sleep."
Cons: "The crew was very active, almost aggressively, cleaning up and coming up and down the aisles alot which kept waking me up."
Pros: "Free meals were great. Movies were awesome."
Pros: "There were clearly ATC delays at Pudong but it us not the habit of Chinese airlines to keep passengers updated. A frustrating hour on board."
Cons: "No info"
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour - no announcements were made, no notifications for the customers, no apologies. Very unprofessional on many levels."
Cons: "Domestic portion of the flight was first canceled then rescheduled then delayed. This issue keeps occurring and should not be recommended on Kayak!"
Cons: "Seats are narrow, leg room poor, and food service is minimal."
Cons: "I always prefer asian airlines"
Pros: "There was a 2-hour delay after all the passengers boarded."
Cons: "Boarding process in Beijing Airport."
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!"
Cons: "package service. lost my package twice."
Pros: "My flight was exhausting zing eventually uncomfortable. The seats weren't clean as it irritated my skin. I didn't eat the food as I couldn't identify it. Passengers were told it was "chicken" but it didn't appear to be chicken. The flight attendants didn't know English so they weren't helpful at all"
Cons: "Cleanliness of plane. Better food and beverage quality. Bilingual flight attendants."
Cons: "Food was horrible."
Pros: "Food was alright, staff was attentive"
Cons: "Not easy to sleep as there were no blindfolds available."
Pros: "New plane Alert crew Comfy seats in economy Excellent cabin service on 12 hr flight"
Cons: "Awful food even when Muslim meal ordered before"
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Food was bland & dull... the same at every meal. Crew did not seem to understand the difference between chicken & duck. EG; "It's chicken & rice"... if it's chicken, why does your colleague say duck? Seats are cramped. No control of your personal environmental comfort - no overhead air nozzle. Crew slow to respond to seat call for assistance."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the aircraft was decent. The pilots very good . All landings and takeoffs were very very smooth"
Cons: "Beijing airport and the Chinese customs system but of course that is not the fault of air China"
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: "Average service!"
Cons: "2x2 seating arrangement in the business class needs to catch up with other airlines such as ANA. International connection in Beijing is very confusing- there were 2 signs that say “foreigners” for both domestic and international connections."
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: "Budget airlines with all basic facilities"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. How can i get my money back? Thanks for your help!"
Cons: "No tv on this flight. Kinda sucked but hey, first world problems. Overall it was just fine"
Pros: "Free wine"
Cons: "There’s no wifi, barely any english speaking movies, and the food is horrible. Will probably never fly air china again."
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"
Pros: "Seats are pretty standard, and they do give you snacks even though the flight's less than 2 hours."
Cons: "As usual, delayed."
Pros: "AVML was very good thanks to German catering."
Cons: "Outdated electronic device policy. Can't even operate in flight mode. While other airlines offer wifi service (LH, UA ETC)."
Pros: "Goof food and service"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 95 minutes, which screw up my schedule badly.."
Cons: "Everything els was disapointing"
Pros: "There were personal movie screens with movies I liked."
Cons: "The food was pretty bad. The bottom seat cushion was quite hard so I couldn't sleep because I was shifting my weight every hour. We were told at the boarding gate that the flight was full when we asked about upgrades, but the economy plus section was almost empty once we were on. I don't understand the reasoning for lying about the flight being full. If you won't sell us an upgrade, just say so."
Pros: "Everything, meals were good."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Did not bring wheelchair to board at gate for my friend. I asked them to bring it they said were you brought in by wheelchair I said yes she was. She said just sit down someone will come back to Board your friend , everyone started to board still no wheelchair I went to ask again she got annoyed and told me sit down horrible flight will never use them again."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was dirty. Area around sink looked like it hadn't been cleaned in some time."
Pros: "Nothing about Air China was pleasant. Will NEVER fly Air China again!!"
Cons: "The food offered was horrible, no on board entertainment for non Chinese customers, can't have your phone on while flying."
Cons: "The food and drinks are limited from all flights. Due to the limitation on the carry-on luggage, I had to place my camera batteries and other stuffs to the check-in luggage at the check in counter in Washington DC. The Chinese custom in Beijing took them all. They are normally just take the battery charger, but not the camera batteries. These are expensive items and not conviniece at all to customer."
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: "It took 20 minutes taxi to reach the terminal in Beijing"
Pros: "Nothing at all, sub par on all basic levels compared to competitors."
Cons: "Cabin unmaintained (seat cushion long overdue for replacing, broken audio jack, broken tray table, broken lavatory amenities. Crew cross and unhappy."
Pros: "There is rudeness every step of the way on this airline. The gate was moved with no notice yet an email was sent, and with no service because I'm in another country and the airport didn't offer free wifi, we were clueless. Had we not looked just to doublecheck, we would've missed the plane. During the transfer the security might as well have frisked me in a room because they were THAT invasive and dumped all my stuff out of my case, smelling my things, throwing out whatever they saw fit without letting me know. this was jist a TRANSFER We let them know we only had half an hr.they didn't care. As a resuly we (along with 9 other passengers) missed the second flight. We went to Information and the lady waved us away and told us to go to security.We went to security and told her we missed the flight and her response was "so?" We went to the police we got generic direction that made us have to go back to them three times because they were so dry and rude; we had to become borderline irate to get any help. Once reaching the captain he greeted us with "What do you want?"At this point I was ready to blow. He finally sent us to the rifht person who was the warmest kindest person during this whole ordeal and helped us get a flight two hrs laters.. Next flight..You are cattle on this plane. Move, sit down, shut up. No ac for the first hr. Forget warm towel, you didn't even get a smile or greeting and i honestly don't care for such things but my flight coming with another airline was SO drastically different I guess I was caught off guard. This was a 12 hr flight, yet to get any service was like being annoyance. The stewardesses made faces if you ask for water. No one came around with coffee or tea or to offer water unless it was meal time. The food was sub par. The best part about it was that at least it was hot..but not all edible. They take your cups, leftover things you might be saving and toss without permission. I had an entire sandwich saved because hrs went by with nothing and they just grabbed it and threw it in the trash. When i brought it to her attn, she just kept moving. The bathrooms were unstocked and stunk. The whole experience sucked. Never EVER again."
Cons: "Please read above noted."
Pros: "I like Eva air better. This was ok, but Eva keeps the bathroom in tip top shape. Air China doesn't seem to keep cleaning the restroom throughout the flight. They seem to run late too which is fine because customs in beijing is slow. Plenty of food, no complaints there."
Pros: "I like food ,drinks,and staff"
Cons: "What i didnt like was our baggage left with no keys, they all broke both keys we put in our check in baggage,just make us so dissapointing!!!"
Pros: "Departed Hong Kong almost on time."
Cons: "the food was OK but no Kosher options. Movie was awful, and the flight announcements were extremely loud."
Pros: "The crew was pretty responsive."
Cons: "Not a great selection of in-flight movies."
Pros: "Absolutly on time. Good check in, no trouble with luggage. Quick proceedings."
Cons: "Food made me sick for two days. And it was definitely the airline food. No entertainment for foreigners, flying standard of 2002."
Pros: "Check-in and boarding went very well, very quickly."
Cons: "The plane was suppose to depart at 6:25 pm, it ended up being closer to 8:00. I suppose that really didn't have to do with anything Air China did, but we ended up landing nearer to 11:00 than the 9:45 that I booked, It was nearly midnight before I was able to get home."
Cons: "Cancelled flight without notice. 24 hour postponement; marginally passable accommodations. No compensation / upgrade / consideration / anything. Horrid staff, passengers, food, plane, etc. 16 hour layover in the frozen prison camp called the Beijing airport. Avoid like the plague. Fly literally anything else."
Cons: "Food nasty and cold. Service rude!! I travel all the time and this airlines not my fave."
Pros: "Great price but crowded seating, no air flow, bad food, couldn't use the games on my phone, and the touch screen entertainment was a 50/50 chance of not working. The stewardesses were nice but spoke almost no English so helping us to find our connecting flight was impossible."

Pros: "The crew was very polite. Always available if you need them."
Cons: "The boarding process is kinda chaotic. And you have to take a bus to the plane and enter the plane from a ground staircase."
