Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I requested fruit platter as my food, but they did not have any information for that. So they did not give me any food for this 14+6 hours long flights"
Pros: "Pilot kept us well informed."
Cons: "Even though ground service was servicing the front of the plane, they were unable to service the rear of the aircraft for another hour. Don’t they know that every plane has a front AND a back.

Cons: "When we arrived most of the passengers ignored the fact that the fasten seat belt sign was still on and started crowding toward the exit, cramming against the people in front. I wish they would have been reminded to be patient and wait their turn to get off."
Pros: "I love Kayak"
Cons: "The airline was fine but the booking agent cancelled my reservation by mistake. I know mistakes happen but when I tried to resolve this problem Justfy.com put me on hold for hours on the day I'm suppose to fly out. I had to go to Twitter to get a call back, I will never use just fly.com again."

I appreciate the safety measures and I realize that there is nothing that can be done about weather but I am considering booking through Xiamen Airlines from now on because of the consistent nature of these occurrences."
Cons: "My experience with flying China Southern for my flights from SFO to BKK and HAN to SFO was the worst that I have ever experienced in my many years traveling for work and leisure. I took this trip with Connor Logan (booked separately) and we both received the same service. To start, when we arrived at SFO we were told our flight was delayed for 7 hours due to mechanical failure and that we would be unable to make our connecting flight in CAN. Even though we had checked the flight status the morning of the flight, there was no information updated. When I spoke to a China Southern employee, she told me that she was informed the Night Before when her boss called her into work because they knew an entire flight would have to be rerouted, yet they did not even warn passengers the morning of the flight. After being changed to a new flight plan, we struggled to get proper help to get our tickets with United and China Eastern because there were some issues with paper tickets that China Southern gave versus the tickets that United accepted. It took 4 hours of confusion in SFO and a stressful quick layover in Shanghai. We did not feel taken care of."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "Food was fair"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The staff was very nice and the flight was on time. The seats were comfortable. Not cramped"
Cons: "The food was barely edible."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Flight was an hour and a half late, almost causing us to miss our connection in LAX. The seat cushions on the china southern planes are the worst I've ever sat on, and I've taken many flights in my day. The food was pretty mediocre. Overall a lame experience."
Cons: "The crews were okay but not that friendly."
Cons: "Crew was not organised"
Cons: "Flight delayed 90 minutes. Poor communications in boarding area. No bi-lingual staff. Food consisted of a cup of yogurt, banana, and stale bread. Awful. Cabin crew was rude. Spouse's entertainment system did not work correctly."
Pros: "new plane"
Cons: "plane departure delayed over 1 hr plane had minimal toilet, the slow food service, blocked bathroom access"
Pros: "Lots of kiddie and action movies (but very few interesting ones!)"
Cons: "NO leg room! Extremely cramped and uncomfortable. Had less than an inch between my knee and seat in front. Very hard to get in and out of seat. Terrible tasteless food. Wine served in tiny cups (two oz?) and ran out after the first serving. China Southern is also impossible to reach--they don't answer phones, there's no website that I could find. So seat assignments were made at airport, and each time we got seats right next to bathroom with loud flushing sounds all night long. Terrible excuse for an airline."
Pros: "Delta flight with Delta service. All was very good."
Cons: "They bumped up our flight by FOUR HOURS and never notified us! When we got to airport early, there was absolutely no China Southern staff to be found. Ourselves and some other people who were in the same predicament had to fight to get out of there after we were redirected to other airline staff. They finally threw us on a flight to Bangkok (not part of our plan) and we had to roam around the Bangkok airport searching for the China Southern business office. When we finally found it, we spoke to a woman who apologized for the "inconvenience" couldn't explain why we were never notified of the flight change, and didn't seem to understand why we were upset. She also refused to let us speak to her manager. She told us it was the responsibility of the online travel site we purchased through to pass along any changes in schedule, but when we both called our respective online companies, they told us it was the airline's responsibility. The China Southern check-in counter only opened 2 hours before boarding, so we had to sit on the floor outside for 4 hours before we could even enter the airport. They re-booked us on all of their later flights, so we had long layovers, much later flights, and all got home a day later than we planned. All in all, it was the most stressful, unhappy travel experience I have ever had. I will never fly this airline again, and I would discourage anyone else from it."
Pros: "1. The food was actually very tasty 2. The crew was nice for the most part 3. The price I paid was decent $496 for one way from Manila to SF"
Cons: "1. The seats were too close together and not comfortable. The arm rests were too short and my elbows kept pushing the overhead light on. 2. The audio jacks was broken so I had to jiggle the headphones in the socket to get the audio to work and even then it wasn't good so I just gave up on watching a movie 3. They don't allow use of cell phones even in airplane mode"
Pros: "Extremely impressed with the service and comfort of the flight"
Pros: "Staff was professional"
Cons: "just average"
Pros: "Lay flat seat in bus. Class. Laege lavatory."
Cons: "Food so so. No bourbon, small glasses small pours of 3-4 oz."
Pros: "The staff in Manila were mostly accomodating and nice. The flight was not full which makes it more comfortable"
Cons: "The attendants were ok. Food was below average. The juice tasted fake. We missed our connection and were advised by the staff never to take that because it is ALWAYS delayed"
Pros: "The on-board staff was friendly. Wish I had more good things to say."
Cons: "Delays seem to be a hallmark of this airline. I could go on for pages about the lack of communication from this airline and how they made me have to stay in a hotel because of a delay, but the less said the better. What exactly are the qualifications for being a member of the SkyTeam? On-board entertainment? I just want TIMELY, safe and comfortable flights. Frills are nice, but not necessary, and do NOT make up for not consistently delivering these priorities. Not allowing the use of cell phones in airplane mode on-board was mildly inconvenient also. Having more than one bathroom on the planes would also be appreciated."
Pros: "The price of flight was a good deal."
Pros: "Terrible! Delayed Flight and didn't inform us ahead of time that China recently passed a law where Kazakh citizens couldn't transit through the airport without a visa! I had to buy her a new ticket with a direct flight! I also had to check my baggage and get a new ticket at every stop!"
Pros: "Just as boarding was to begin, announcement that it will be delayed an hour. Then 10 minutes later they board. We then push back and taxi to hold spot between terminals. Sit for 45 minutes then moved again. ( control tower is my guess to waiting line ) for a 30minute que to the runway, That timing is what an hour delay at the gate is. no doubt airline knew all this waiting as they didn't have control tower OK's to line up and wait. I watched rolls of planes move in front of ours during the waits on taxiways. Should have allowed us to wait in terminal rather then plane. Landing they made us sit with seats up for 45minutes also."
Pros: "The food was good. It was nice that they supply wet hot towels before each meal. The seat was comfortable with the price I paid for. The rest room is nice and clean and quite spacious. The L’occitane toiletery bag was nice."
Cons: "It would be nice to supply mouthwash in the rest room. It would be nice to have a foot step at the bottom to open the trash container. The comforter is not washed and smells."
Cons: "Because the first flight was delayed, we had to run like mad men to our connecting flight or else we wouldve missed it."
Cons: "Everything is ok"
Cons: "Food is poor"
Pros: "Amazing crew and service"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours delayed with no explanation or access to WiFi given."
Cons: "package service"
Pros: "The crew we're very nice"
Cons: "I had to run through Beijing airport because I had 45 minutes for connecting flight-----gate was very far from arriving gate. I am at Bangkok airport now waiting on 2 pieces of lost luggage. Food was not good."
Pros: "Friendly service."
Pros: "I was surprised that there were tons of in flight entertainment to select from. Crew was also very nice"
Cons: "The seats weren’t the most comfy and one of the meals was bad"
Pros: "Flights were on time. Efficient boarding. Service good. Staff friendly and attentive."
Cons: "On 2 of 4 segments of flights the entertainment touch was not working."
Pros: "the timliness the processing at beijing the helpful checkin people at the akl airport. The baggage delivered promptly and without breakage. The crew worked hard to ensure"
Cons: "the shops at air port are expensive the toilet sinks were slopping and did not drain well the airline apologizing for the lack of food choice before each service pl advise airline to ask for choice at the check-in or at least make a note of the preference through email, makes life easier for them and the passengers. announcements were in chinese and the english ones were not very clear . it would be good if the announcements also came up on the seat screens CLEANLINESS WAS AN ISSUE with the overhead lockers not clean to the pull up table and magazine spaces not clean"
Pros: "Number of crew and attentiveness; meal service on a short flight and efficiency in delivery"
Cons: "Mass boarding rather than by section"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The food was ok for an airplane."
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."
Cons: "Check in confused ,no airline sign on counter Delay as usual"
Pros: "A bit of the food"
Cons: "No valid explanation for the 2 hours delayed of the flight from montreal and upon arrival in Beijging there is a lot of miscommunication about what passengers have to do. Everybody does'nt know what to do. No one can exactly give us the way and right thing to do. No anwers to our questions. We were hungry and no way of getting in touch with our family members because airport wifi does'nt work for us. We were ask to go here and there without explanation and the hotel given does'nt deserve to.be even a 1star..a better than nothing hotel. Tired, hungry and very exhausted . No words can describe our frustrations. We deserve a refund if not at least a compensation for that very bad service experienced on that flight of Air China 880."
Pros: "The Beijing/Osaka flight was a smaller simpler plane than the Heathrow/Beijing one, but cconsidering the amount of time both flights take relative to each other, I think it had the better balance of the two."
Cons: "The only thing I'd suggest is while the Crew were great and did offer drinks a number of times, the first drinks run seemed late - although that might just be a combination of needing to wait until the plane has reached full altitude and the desire to clear the unpleasant Beijing air."
Cons: "I had to stay at Beijing for overnight and took a flight the next day."
Pros: "There is nothing I liked about Air China. It is a joke of an airline."
Cons: "Things I didn't like: 1. Cannot use smartphones during the entirety of the flight: customers should be warned that smartphones are not allowed to be used during the entire flight. I would not of chosen this horrible airlines if I'd known. I would of gladly spent hundreds more on another airline to avoid this inconvenience. I saved games and movies I wanted to play onto my phone for my 20hr flight and learned from the flight attendant that phones usage was not permitted. What a waste. Plus their movie selections were very limited and a complete joke compared to American, Delta, Virgin, or JetBlue. 2. Food: HORRIBLE TASTING FOOD. Air China should be ashamed of themselves to represent "Chinese food" in this way. I found 3 out of 4 of my meals completely inedible and absolutely disgusting. 3. Most cramped seats I've ever flew in: These seats are just tests to see how much you can put up with flying."
Pros: "It was a quick flight with good service"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is fault."
Cons: "they should really do something about tight connections. If your first airline is only barely late, it becomes a frantic haste from hell to get thru security again and to your next airline. Security needs to inspect every element of your carryon in spite of the fact you were already screened on your previous flight. They will dump out your entire bag to inspect all contents. Extremely easy to lose important things. They confiscate all spare batteries if they only appear to be high power range regardless of what the actual voltage is."
Pros: "Everything, meals were good."
Cons: "Staff was not really helpful"
Pros: "The flight had a comfortable amount of people so ther was extra room. Food was decent."
Cons: "The plane was new and clean at the beginning of the flight. It was a sty after. Flight attendants don’t pick up garbage regularly and service is lacklustre"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Restriction of using Kindle or Phone in aircraft mode for the whole flight. There is no technical reason for this."
Pros: "Excellent service.... clean aeroplane... good food and great staff..."
Cons: "The seats were very close together so when the person in front of you reclined back, it was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "since this portion of my flight was cancelled by air china they tried to book me on the next day but my husband decided to come meet me in beijing after getting me a hotel and driver to pick me up the night that i was stranded. i told air china not to book me on the flight the following morning that i wasn't going to take it. they never did that and ended up cancelling the entire remaining flights on air china. this was the worst experience with an airline i've ever experienced."
Pros: "Good service overall"
Cons: "Some delays in flights, and poor communication. Nothing too bad, but sometimes we were left wondering what happened, or when we could expect the flight to depart. If I had close connection times, I would have lost two flights"
Pros: "Worst flight ever. Delayed 2 hours on the front end. Food was horrible. Plane was freezing. Service awful. No information on the delays."
Pros: "Mr. Zhang helped me a lot. Thanks!"
Pros: "We were finally able to get home but..."
Cons: "we are still trying to contact someone in Beijing to help us get our security check items back and no one from China Air staff is helping to ship our items back to us."
Pros: "Excellent service attentive staff / good selection of wine and food"
Cons: "Entertainment very limited for non Chinese"
Pros: "Good leg room."
Cons: "Got food poisoning"
Cons: "Boarding and deplaning from the tarmac vs a jetway"
Pros: "polite, quick check-in, nice on-board service"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Customer service was incredibly unprofessional."
Pros: "the food wasnt bad"
Cons: "delayed 2 hours with no explanation, then delayed on plane for another hour and a half with no explanation. Air china is nothing like flying in the US. they dont tell you anything thats going on and definitely make you feel small in the grand scheme of things"
Pros: "Everything worked, boarded quickly and crew served passengers efficiency. Luggage was already on the conveyor belt when I arrived."
Pros: "Smooth flight, good crew. Food was ok. Movie selection not great in English but what do you expect on China airline."
Pros: "The crew were really nice and pleasant Leg space was a better than Mumbai to Beijing"
Cons: "The Air -china crew English need to be improved The non-veg food was a little mediocre"
Pros: "nothing good"
Cons: "Crew's behavior was very rude to me, firstly they barly understand English and they lie to me by giving me non-vegetarian food and said it is vegetarian. When I resist and said I'll complaint against you guys so they took food and trashed it immediately without my permission."
Pros: "Staff and accommodations were great and so was the in flight staff."
Cons: "The worse at keeping their customers comfortable in exhausting, stressful situations during delays, & cancelled flights."
Pros: "Great Service Great Flight."
Cons: "Check- in clerk was not very helpful"
Pros: "The on boarding process was quick and efficient at Songyuan airport. Very clean airport, and pleasant staff. Plane had decent legroom in the economy seating. Food was decent for short flight airplane food."
Cons: "Airline crew never gave any status updates about why the flight was not getting ready for takeoff after everyone was seated and the planes doors closed. Sat there waiting for +30 minutes with no updates. Flight crew never gave immigration cards. Deplaning was a nightmare because we had to deplane in several groups because it was raining and the Hongqiao airport would not let us deplane through a jetway."
