KAYAK is a travel search engine. That means we look across the web to find the best prices we can find for our users. With over 2 billion flight queries processed yearly, we are able to display a variety of prices and options on flights to China.
KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool uses historical data to determine whether the price for a flight to China is likely to change within 7 days, so travellers know whether to wait or book now.
Hacker Fares allow you to combine one-way tickets in order to save you money over a traditional round-trip ticket. You could then fly to China with an airline and back with another airline.
Sometimes travel dates aren't set in stone. If your preferred travel dates have some wiggle room, flexible dates will show you all the options when flying to China up to 3 days before/after your preferred dates. You can then pick the flights that suit you best.
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Was delayed several hours, had to change crews in Vancouver, and landed in Toronto long after my connecting flight had already left. Instead of being Boston at 7pm, I got back at 11am the next day"
Cons: "-35 minute delay"
Cons: "Never made it to the flight..."
Pros: "Everything was great. From food to entertainment was great."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Lady at check in, Helen, at Pearson was TERRIBLE. No compassion for us travelling with a 2 month old baby, and then booked our seats with united in separate locations with no bassinet. I will never use air Canada Again."
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. On time flight"
Cons: "Food is just so-so"
Pros: "Boarding easy & fast"
Cons: "Plane lat, extremely hot, & only 1 explanation with no updates"
Cons: "Really doesn't fit into the "didn't like" category but my boarding pass said Zone 6, however there was no Zone 6 called nor signage for it. Even the person checking our boarding passes was surprised. Just a comment really!"
Pros: "Liked the entertainment system and the fact that none of my luggage was lost on this trip. (Air Canada is a real pain to deal with on lost luggage.) Vegetarian meal was not gourmet, but good."
Cons: "Arrived late so next flight had to be rebooked. They did give us a food ticket though. I would give it an overall good rating (instead of okay) if it had not arrived late."
Pros: "The flight itself was ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, and still late, I missed my pick up and had to get home by taxi. It was raining when we arrive, and they was no taxi available at 3am.so we were standing outside the terminal in the cold."
Pros: "Getting off."
Cons: "I had a seat with a drip, probably condensation, that feel on my head and face throughout the flight. At one point during takeoff it was a steady stream of water. I sat with a napkin perched on my head and would mop up the water between events. That was a first! And with a long 14 hour flight, not welcomed."
Pros: "Take off take off and landings were on time or early."
Cons: "I could not find the AC outlet that was supposed to be there. I only noticed under the seat When deplaning."
Pros: "Easy booking , excellent rate and good follow up with reminder emails for check in and gate information on every trip"
Cons: "Mix up with seating had boarding card reprinted twice and no one could explain why it happened. Staff otherwise were good."
Cons: "I thought I was getting a good deal compared to other airlines but was shocked later to learn I had to pay extra to reserve a seat. When this was added it actually cost more. No entertainment for an 8 hour international flight! Really? Only one checked bag for an international flight. I’ve experienced much better on other airlines."
Pros: "The desk staff were really helpful and unexpectedly accommodating."
Cons: "Seat pitch in economy is too tight to do work on a 14" laptop. The food was mediocre at best."
Pros: "2 of the 3 flight attendants were pleasant. The third, male, I didn't find very helpful, especially when storing my carry on in the overhead compartment."
Cons: "The male flight attendant's customer service skills could use some work. When I booked this flight on Kayak, one price was listed but when paying there was an additional cost for the seat and I wasn't given the option of paying for a less expensive seat."
Pros: "Entertainment excellent for a short flight"
Cons: "1 attendant looked unshowered with greasy hair, but good attitude"
Cons: "Headphone socket broken on this older airplane. Only purchased food available so n/a."
Cons: "The food on the flight to/from Delhi was too spicy to my taste. I'm generally allergic to certain spices and ended up eating next to nothing during the flight."
Cons: "check in staff was unable to though tag me luggage onto an onward Emirates flight from Toronto. Not sure if this was a lack of knowledge or limitations of the check in system. Seat options provided at the time showed only middle seats as available all other sets were showing booked or required pay-up premiums...Air Canada's website had a whole host of end seats available...."
Cons: "The business class layout on the Boeing 787 was confusing. The seat was narrow and uncomfortable for my 250lb frame and 6 foot 2inch height. There was now head rest for my neck. The air circulation in the center of the aircraft was poor and too hot while my wife across the aisle had good circulation and temperature. The leg room was inadequate as well. Is this Boeing 787 specific? The selections on the movie list were too small."
Cons: "I called to change my flight to an earlier time in the day. The customer service agent told me it would be $1000 to change and another agent told me it was free same day flight change with business class tickets. I was told the flight was wide open for seats and when I arrived at the airport it was over sold by 8 people. I had to waste $3000 in business class tickets and book on West Jet to return home. Airline is a joke and I would never fly with them again."
Pros: "It was a short flight and there was entertainment on board."
Cons: "Missed my original flight due to the delay in the flight from Newark. Had to be placed on standby and this was the third available flight to Toronto I got on. Boarding took forever for some reason. People were in line for at least half an hour so they gave out free earphones to compensate. Otherwise you'd have to purchase it."
Cons: "The check in counter was a mess. Though we had checked in online, it still took forever to check in at the counter as the machines could not print out the bag tags, then there was another line up for dropping off the bags. Those machines also could not read foreign passports though Canadian ones were fine. So we had to wait for our friends who were from overseas. The stewardess doing the announcements went so fast you could not hear her except for a few words, and she had a very strong French accent so it sounded like she was speaking in French all the time. But at least she was better than the pilot, whom we could not hear at all. The only word we heard was "cloudy"."
Pros: "We boarded the flight on time but of course we were still 30 minutes delayed taking off"
Cons: "The seats were tight. There was no entertainment system. They ran out of iPods before they got out of the premium seat area. Because of light turbulence the drink service was interrupted and never repeated in a seven hour flight."
Cons: "Taxied to runway, but had to go back to terminal due to one seat not staying in upright position. Flight was about an hour late then."
Pros: "Able to upgrade to 1st class"
Cons: "Customs what a cluster of confusion"
Pros: "Captain had made up for delay we had at the take off so we came in Paris almost as planned."
Cons: "Crew and service was rushed our and food was handed to us without direst addressing or eye to eye contact. It was on bases "TAKE IT IF YOU WANT"."
Pros: "crew was awesome"
Cons: "that people can recline their seats in coach. very uncomfortable and there's really not enough room to do this."
Cons: "No breakfast offered for a four hour flight"
Cons: "Captain's announcements were inaudible from the wing seats. Seats very cramped - I'm only 5 feet tall and barely had room for my legs. Also, unable to see safety demonstration as the seat backs were too tall for a short person to see anything but the back of the seat in front of me."
Cons: "When you roll up on clerk at the check-in counter and she's already eyeing your carry-on bag you know you're gonna have a problem. My bag was purchased a month ago and I made sure it met all major airline specs so when she immediately told me I'd have to check it, I told her it would fit no problem in her little mold. She insisted that it would not and I'd have to PAY to check it. I picked it up and easily popped it into the mould but my zipper snagged on the way in and she said that I was not allowed to "force" it in. I then easily lifted it in and out twice without the zipper snagging. Then she insisted that I weigh it. 22lbs is not much at all so I figured I might get caught here but to my surprise I was only at 23lbs. So she immediately said I would have to pay because I was over weight.... BY 1 LB! So I opened my bag and took out bag of carrots and put it back on the scale. She was so pissed that she couldn't charge me anything that she never made eye contact for the rest of the process. She then said that because I had my cat with me I could not sit in the row I had booked because it was an exit row. I insisted that it was not an exit row as I had just flown on the plane four days earlier with my cat in the same seat. She refused and moved me to a row with less leg room despite my having paid for the upgraded seat (I'm 6'4"). Upon boarding, I confirmed with the flight attendant that my original row was NOT an exit row. It was behind the exit row and there are no restrictions for that. One terrible staff member is all it takes to ruin a flight. Air Canada Rouge also happens to be a soda can with wings so that doesn't help."
Cons: "Terribly slow security lines. Terribly slow custom lines with no one asking:"Does anyone have a flight they need to make soon?" to the line to get those folks rushed through. Left 20 minutes late due to 14 people stuck in those lines. Airplane sat 1 hour and 15 minutes on tarmac at Laguardia waiting for a gate. We were behind other planes waiting for a gate too. Once out of plane, tough time getting up to the terminal as the terminal was so crowded. Will avoid Air Canada and Laguardia like the plague."
Pros: "The fact that there is a way to have on board entertainment but this was clitchy. Hot snack was welcome. Pillows and blankets. Direct flight from Casa."
Cons: "Rude and filthy airline hostess. Having greasy hair and being rude is totally unprofessional. Requesting that a sleeping passenger bring their chair to upright position so that the passenger behind can have a snack? It doesn't make sense.This flight was not full at all and we were strongly urged to check our carry-on due to this. Well they didn't apparently see the fragile sticker as our latern and ceramics were damaged and the bag came out on the main conveyor. Also the door wouldn't open for baggage upon arrival so we were delayed an hour?"
Pros: "Flight was on schedule"
Cons: "Plane sat on Tarmac for 45 mins Flight attendant was busy chatting personal matters non-stop and was loud, when passengers were totally annoyed from waiting 45 mins to deplane"
Pros: "good staff, very courteous and caring"
Cons: "took a long time to board, couldn't watch videos bc of bad sound"
Cons: "Very very bad customer service. I was flying to Rome from NYC on Friday night and my flight was cancelled. I was just notified by a text saying that there was a change in my flight. After calling customer service, I was forced to take the afternoon flight on Friday as I had to be in Rome for a wedding on Saturday. Even if I was rushed to the airport (my call with the customer service took place at 12.00 and the flight was after 2.30 hours...) and cancelled all my appointments and had to take special permission to leave from work, I was never offered any upgrades or refunds while at the same time the attitude of the rep was take the change or leave it. At the airport, I called again the customer service to understand better the cancellation policy based on their website and their response was to apply on the website and maybe I would get a little bit of money and they don't offer upgrades for these kind of situations. They indicated that it is up to gate manager to decide for upgrades, which when I tried this approach I was notified that the customer service should have flag me appropriately....I don't really care about the refund or the upgrade as at the end I was able to reach my destination on time; however, it was extremely disappointing to see a whole organization that does not take into consideration their customers time and ignore any descent customer service to them. Simply, never again."
Pros: "Price and schedule."
Cons: "Price and schedule."
Pros: "Efficient, vigilant and helpful crew"
Cons: "The complimentary earphones provided on the flight were the worst ear buds I have ever worn and were extremely uncomfortable. If you're going to make it so passengers cannot use their own earphones without the sound being distorted, then please upgrade your earphones to something more comfortable. My ears were sore the whole flight trying to readjust the ear buds."
Pros: "In-flight service was good and friendly. Food was tasty."
Cons: "Infotainment went on the fritz the last couple of hours."
Pros: "Friendly staff, not as crowded as most airlines"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like -- they might need a few more rest rooms for the coach classes"
Cons: "They put two people in one seat flight attendant was rude , I was traveling with my mother who has an artificial knee and they did not sit us together. The flight attendant laughed at us and said that it wasn't her fault . Awful awful awful"
Pros: "The plane could fly"
Cons: "German Shepard in my seat. We didnt have seats together. Very bad flight"
Cons: "Everything was great. Very nice and friendly crew, clean plane, great food. Excellent overall"
Pros: "The fare was good."
Cons: "More modern equipment. Tv screens. Movies. In flight magazines in English."
Pros: "It doesn't have premium economy, the space is small."
Pros: "Not a full flight, seat next to me was empty which was good for a 12 hour."
Cons: "Better selection of movies, real window shades instead of the transparent ones."
Cons: "1. I am not sure if your crew members could speak English or not. I didn’t understand what they were talking about or what was happening. 2. The plane took off under extreme thunderstorm. I am not sure if this was safe to do so but the plane was extremely bumpy, going down rapidly for about 30 minutes. The whole cabin was then in chaos. People started turning up, crying and writing last words. However, your crew members GAVE NO INSTRUCTIONS, BROADCASTING OR UPDATES ON WHATS GOING ON. What they did was mocking around with each other in Cantonese. 3. This would be my last time travel with you - I was your loyal customer since student time. But after this awful experience I chose not to go with you anymore."
Pros: "Overall good flight"
Cons: "First flight was delayed which resulted in the missed connection, overnight stay in Beijing and lost time in our final destination"

Pros: "on the plane, Crew in CA are great! Food is delicious! Entertainment is very good!"
Cons: "I had a terrible time yesterday when I had to transfer from CA 4120 to CA 429 in Chengdu Shuangliu to Sydney. When I got off at Shuangliu airport From CA 4120 at 23:50pm, there was no airport bus to transfer me from T2 to T1 international Departure at Chengdu Shuangliu.

Cons: "Departed an hour and a half late"
Pros: "My trip started off with airplane problems from the beginning. From my flight being delayed multiple times by air china to the overly packed united to the confusion of the non updated confirmation numbers or the e-ticket number. Even on the day I left upon arriving to the airport my confirmation number they had just given me after all the prior problems still didn't work. Air china had mediocre food with okay entertainment except my headset jack on the TV was broke and I couldn't watch anything. On the last air china flight from Bejing to Bangkok. I couldn't even charge my phone, watch any entertainment and basically was just stuck with no WiFi. Justfly wouldn't compensate for the changes on their end and said I myself would have to ask the airlines for compensation which the.the airlines directed me no where for compensation or even to upgrade my seat. Now I'm finally in Thailand but I'm scared of my return."

Cons: "Not enough time to transfer due to delay and staff wasn't helpful"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is fault."

Pros: "Bathrooms were clean. Foot rests were comfortable."
Cons: "Chairs did not recline much for such a long flight."
Pros: "Overall i won't prefer to travel from this airlines anymore."
Cons: "the way airline treat the passenger was very poor and rude. I came to know this when my Air China flight from Sydney to Chengdu have been cancelled on 16th of November 2017 at 21:40 pm. I had to reach my destination on time by 17th of November 2017 to attend my marriage ceremony but unfortunately i missed and had to bear a great loss. THEREFORE, I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST A COMPENSATION AND REFUND FOR MY FLIGHT."
Pros: "Timeliness of the flight, good decent meals and most important, best and cheapest fare."
Cons: "No leg room, crappy toilets, rush between changing flights, as there was very little changing time"

Pros: "Seats were large and crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight did not exist, missed connecting flight"
Pros: "Airline deliberately arranged for me to miss my connection in Beijing.. Resulted I a 24 hour delay. They did not cover food expenses while I waited for a substitute flight."
Pros: "Airfare was a good price."
Cons: "Flights are always late, not due to uncontrollable circumstances like weather, but rather from poor organization and scheduling. Had 4 flights with air china this trip, 3 out of 4 were late. One of them causing me to be stuck overnight in Beijing and losing a day from my trip. Bad service to remedy that as well. Won't ever fly with Air China again."
Pros: "Seat space/ leg room was good"
Cons: "Food Crew was not able to understand English, even personnel at airport were not able to understand English"
Pros: "The plane tickets were cheap, but I guess you get what you pay for."
Cons: "Airport staff in Beijing was rude. We boarded our plane and then proceeded to sit on the runway for 2 hours during a known weather delay. Airplane was very uncomfortable with few movie options. Flight attendants were rude on every flight I took with air China. I guess this was an improvement as the entertainment system was broken on my way there. My luggage was lost both ways of travel. In trying to report lost luggage, the desk attendant was rude and not helpful. She wasted about 30 minutes of my time just to tell me she couldn't help me. She should have told me that initially when I described my problem to her and she didn't listen. This delay caused me to miss my connecting flight. Overall I had a terrible experience and will never fly Air China ever again!!!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and everyone was very nice. Excellent airline!"
Cons: "Their signage at Beijing was hard to follow. We were flying to Korea and it's an international flight but everyone directed us to their domestic side and eventually couldn't check us in because we needed to goto their international counter. It's also so massive so I probably missed the sign but once we got to the right place everyone was helpful again. Would fly them again."
Cons: "Food to be improved"
Pros: "The flight was generally fine and on time. Good as good as to be expected on midrange flight."
Cons: "Transfering in Chengdu takes forever. First we didn't get a gate and had to take a bus to terminal the long way round the runway - 10 mins. Then we had to collect our suitcases and re-check in and the queue was very long. Some people were very stressed about missing their connecting flights. Then when transferring to connecting terminal you first have to walk far within the terminal, then have to go outside security, find yourself the shuttle bus to the other terminal yourself, then go through security again - many more queues. Lots of time spent and lots of stress, and I'm not alone as everyone was complaining."
Cons: "The very worst thing is that I flew into Beijing 90 minutes before my next flight -- had to go through terminal transfer and a VERY LONG immigration line. In fact, I MISSED MY FLIGHT TO CHENGDU, and Air China had to book me on a later flight. The Beijing airport is cranky and difficult to smoothly get from one place to another, but missing this flight was COMPLETELY AVOIDABLE if there were ANY Air China staff around to assist and there weren't."
Cons: "Transfer from SFO-PEK. Delayed by a whole hour during taking off. Food was horrible. Lost my baggage, although eventually found. It was a nightmare."
Cons: "Flight landed late, middle of airport when it's raining, and we had to take the steps down and squeeze into a tiny bus...which also only fit half the flight, so a lot of people got stuck waiting in the rain for a bus after they got off."
Cons: "stopping in Beijng is very hard. it was hard to ride their transfer bus, very crowded, the driver would just stop hard not thinking that there were people standing in a very crowded bus. getting off the airplane is very hard when you have to get off the plane using portable stairs especially with older people. we were given 2 choices for the main entree when food was being served, but our choice was not available anymore so we were given the left over instead."
Pros: "Good food. Good drinks. Kind staff."
Cons: "Poorly designed entertainment equipment. Low quality video. Broken sound. Highly disorganized boarding. No entertainment or electronics at takeoff and landing. Did not carry enough customs/border documents for all the passengers."
