Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I booked this time China air for my parents and because of delayed flight we had very bad experience. Japanese boarding ticking staff were cooperative but seems they don’t have power"
Cons: "They said they understand situation but they were afraid to solve but there were staff name Ms. Umeda Ms. Yasukawa and Ms. Ai were very nice trying to handling the situation but as we were very cooperative and understanding that not their fault. My parents are old my mother can’t walk probably and Blood pleasure patient. I ask for room in Beijing because of 18 hours delayed stay. But they failed for get Hotel. But Japanese staff were nice also crew. I would love to give 5/5 rating but honestly was bad experience only because of delayed flight and couldn’t get recovery."
Pros: "Crew pleasant and friendly"
Cons: "The food is terrible. Selection of beverages and meals very limited."
Cons: "Be on time"
Pros: "Seat was super comfortable and crew is great"
Cons: "It should be illegal to have that short of layover in PEK that is impossible to make. They also made us stay on the plane for 5/6 hours waiting to take off with no explaination and very little food or water."
Pros: "The food."
Cons: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "the flight delayed 2 hours and 40 minutes."
Cons: "Seems like airchina have no experience in aviation business"
Pros: "Boarding was streamlined, planes took off on time and made it to destination before time. Entertainment options were decent."
Cons: "Food isn't the best (had Hindu meal for my flights) not sure if there is a better option. There isn't much in terms of snacks, outside the set meals. Some of the crew members do struggle with communicating in English, but I always found someone to work with."
Pros: "Constant service through out the night on long 12 hour segment. Hostess was constantly walking up/down aisle serving great green tea and juices. Unlike other airline where crew puts off lights and go to sleep too"
Cons: "Food totally tailored to Chinese tastes. Though Muslim meal pre ordered was ok Beijing airport no WiFi and terrible security check"
Pros: "Boarding was prompt and efficient."
Cons: "No power sockets to charge phones, Entertainment selection and functionality completely outdated, just managed to watch 1 movie before I gave up trying. The air hostess tried to help but mentioned that it’s just slow. During dinner service I asked for a second glass of wine with my meal but was refused as only 1 glass of beer or wine is allowed per passenger and flight, which I found very stingy as an airline and irritating from a customer care perspective."
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"
Cons: "Very Old plane The entertainment system was down during entire 9hour trip Food is terrible, noodle so dry, can not eat After toilet visit, the water is not working, can not wash your hand"
Pros: "the flight is delate"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Outdated entertainment system for a 14 hour flight. Old movies and only a few options. Also, connecting through Beijing sucks because you have to go through security again just to get to your transfer gate. I almost missed my flight"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable. Solid flight."
Cons: "You have to take a tram to the plane and they don’t provide a separate shuttle for business class as some airlines do."
Pros: "Middle of the roax"
Cons: "To tight of a seat for a man who is 6'3 275 lbs. Shear brutality"
Cons: "Missed this flight because the first one was late. There was not enough time in between. And my luggage didn't make this flight either! It became a big debacle and I spent an extra $200 fixing it."
Pros: "Unedable food"
Cons: "Booked beyond recognition flavourless"
Pros: "The ticket was very affordable. The airplane accomadations were in line with what I paid so no complaints. Happy thatI saved money and got a window seat."
Cons: "The movie and show selections in English were not that great. Some outdated movies. The space between seats was tight. The bathrooms were filthy. Looked like that they hadn’t been cleaned prior to this leg."
Cons: "Small plane ,narrow aisle"
Pros: "The food was good for airplane food."
Cons: "It makes no sense to not allow the use of any electronics during take off and landing. My E reader doesn't even use a cell signal, but I couldn't have it out. Also, not allowing cell phones at ANY time during the flight, even in airplane mode, is ridiculous because tablets, which can have cell signals, are allowed. Air China is just frustrating."
Pros: "not too full. included a meal even though it was a night 5 hour flight."
Cons: "Wasn't on flight"
Pros: "Price price and price!"
Cons: "Food! Horrible in one word. Shanghai connection is too long and wastes a page in my passport: why should I pass the security and passport checks only to turn around and fly away? Clearly this can be improved so that the transit passengers can transit without customs"
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."
Pros: "Overall ok. Plane was an older model."
Cons: "No wifi for long trips. Very important to me."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Two hours on the deck at Astana waiting take off in steaming humidity and not a word from the staff. They looked blankly at me when I asked to know what was going on. And then they told a bald faced lie. They failed in the service of a pre-ordered mea. in general a pathetic excuse for an airline."
Pros: "It was cheap"
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: "Delays at boarding n waiting on tarmac per usual on time to the airlines in china is a joke"
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: "everything was better"
Pros: "Like all of the reviews online talked about how terrible Air China was, but for the price it was great. Decent food, good service, somewhat understandable English, luggage was fine, service was good. A little cramped, but that's economy for you."
Cons: "I mean, it was a little cramped and the some of the food wasn't that delicious, but I'm a privileged white American man, so that's my bias speaking. It seems to work well for everyone else. Most of the flight was Chinese since we were going to China. They had no issues. Also I was the only white person on my flight, so I was the minority and really have no place to complain."
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude, only dry cookies for snacks on the 13h flight, really hard to have wine seems they don't want you to have any. Only with your dinner she said...food wasn't great either."
Pros: "I do on line check in for the trip from DC to Beiging, it's good that I got what I wanted to have an aisle seat. Then I do the transit trip at the DC airport counter, they told me that I had an aisle seat, and the baggages were checked in all the way to Taiwan. The truth is I didn't have an aisle seat and my two luggages are lost."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Customer service was incredibly unprofessional."
Pros: "I was extremely pleased with the flight attendants. They were excellent at all times. Very professional and friendly. I was particularly surprised at their approach to any passenger who could potentially cause problems for the flight or other passengers. I'm American and to be frank, we are total jerks in flight. You tell an American to put away their mobile device and as soon as you turn your back they're back at it. Americans in general are unreasonable people. The flight attendants' approach to solving problems before they have an opportuniy to become problems was a sight to see, friendly, non-confrontational. They brought beverages around at regular intervals which was very comforting. Also, not only were blankets and pillows at every seat before takeoff, but they were fairly decent. Very comfortable. On a US carrier you can expect to be charged extra for any little thing, and so you don't even bother to ask for it. On Air China you don't have to worry about it."
Cons: "I had my iPad so entertainment wasn't a problem, but checking out the listings there was inadequate entertainment for a twelve hour flight for any passenger who didn't bring their own as I did. On my twelve hour flight from Beijing to Los Angeles, they only had one meal. And this was after the flight had been delayed. I couldn't understand why they thought it was OK to provide only one meal for a twelve hour flight."
Pros: "70% of the entertainment is in Chinese so be prepared with your own stuff. Food was not awful, but not great. Comfort and leg room above average."
Pros: "The flight was short. They played a movie because we waited about one hour on the tarmac to take off."
Cons: "My luggage was lost. Because I don't speak Chinese, I am not sure if the crew was being truthful with me. Apparently it was my fault the bag was still in Beijing, and not in the final destination. I had to retrieve the bag the next day from the airport which was just kind of a production. Unclear, and not the most apologizing staff about the lost luggage."
Pros: "Food terrible, baggage was damaged after flight. Security checks in Beijing are hell for a family. Entertainment system worst ever seen as a lot in Chinese. They re-use blankets! Otherwise ok."
Pros: "Service & attentiveness of flight crew on red eye and 12 hr+ flight."
Cons: "3rd class was new to me. Little cramped but still comfortable with good entertainment."
Pros: "Food was pretty good. 2meals and a snack. Would be better with more variety for snack options."
Cons: "More snack options - I can't eat mayonnaise and all their sandwiches had that. Also my flight was supposed to have WiFi and charging outlets-had neither"
Pros: "This time Air China were pretty on time for both all the trips I took, in contrast to its constant delay in the past."
Cons: "The food was not appealing. The service of the crew is ok but not too enthusiastic or friendly"
Pros: "Great Service Great Flight."
Pros: "Hard to remember anything I liked"
Cons: "Delayed 7 total hours. Zero communication. People missed connecting flights with no help from service desk. Stuck on runway with no communication from the pilot. Stuck deboarding with. I communication why doors could not be opened or how long it would take."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. Horrible experience."
Cons: "Awful. First flight was delayed 6 hours. And return flight on the same flight, 2 hours delayed. Worst airline."
