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"

Pros: "people very nice"
Cons: "food can hv been better"
Pros: "Crew is so polite!"
Cons: "No wifi, no individual entertainment screens, no power. TV screens looked like an old VHS tape (static)."
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..."
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: "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."
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."
Pros: "Crew is nice and always ready for helping."
Cons: "Food was terrible and not fresh"
Cons: "Delayed. Bad food. No entertainment."
Pros: "Food was excellent. Crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Plane seats were small -- but as expected to be honest with you."
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: "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: "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: "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."
Pros: "Initial ticketing and boarding was easy. A bit of a fiasco in Lhasa."
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: "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: "The crew are amazing"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "It was extremely loud the entire trip and after traveling for more than 24 hours beforehand, it was an extremely uncomfortable trip."
Pros: "Great airplane (787 Dreamliner), comfortable seats, lots of meals, free beer and wine. Great ticket price!"
Cons: "The cabin crew did not really understand english. When I asked something, it was clear that they didn't understand. I had to claim my checked bag and recheck it at every flight segment. No ability to select seats unless it was more than 72 hours before departure."
Pros: "The plane was very new. Good movies and tv shows."
Cons: "The pineapple went bad...and it was just served. Also a tiny pastry, it had a flavor that the nuts had been sitting for a while."
Pros: "You give me the suck time form shenyang to Fuzhou . I have to pick up all my stuff and chinking all the stuff to shenyang form Fuzhou . And just a 40 minute how I make it ? And I miss my fly to Fuzhou . I have to buy 2 new tickets form shenyang to Fuzhou ! $400 .. I feel so bad very bad .."

Cons: "Nothing significant"
Pros: "Nice flight; very comfortable"
Cons: "Short flight; so no in-flight entertainment (no problem though)"
Pros: "Very responsible and kind cabin crew. We were delayed by maybe 8-10 hours because of weather. The crew would have to work all night, but were very kind about the situation."
Cons: "Short flight; so there was no real in-flight entertainment. That's really alright though."
Cons: "the transit in Xiamen after my flight from Hong Kong it was 7 hours I have stay in xi amen. The promotion and/or advertisement saying that I have eight hotel for me to rest in Xiamen or a city tour. After I arrived there.all of those was saying nothing provided today. all I can have is leading me to a lough where just seats, tables for passenger to sit there. provided tea, water, Chinese made coke with natural temperature no ice . just sit there for 7 hours to wait for my connection flight to LAX"
Cons: "Flight got delayed in Xiamen, miss the connecting flight to chongqing."
Cons: "The flight left before we get there. I had to book a train ticket to my final destination because I have to be in Fuzhou that day. I was told by the airline that I would be reimbursed the air fare from Xiamen to Fuzhou."
Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "The flights got delayed. One of the flights got delayed without a notice in advance."
Pros: "The plane was new, the plane was clean, and all the airline hostesses were not 65 years old. Oh and everyone complaining about the visa requirements for China. Bend over a take one for the team like a man just Go to a travel agent in any in China Town. $100 US will get you a bias good for 10 years and it only take a week. Otherwise fly Delta for $1200."
Cons: "Limited selection of English language movies but hey it was a China airline so no bit surprise there."
Cons: "They left my luggages at SeaTac. I am at China right now, and I don’t know when they are going send them to me. All my stuff in the luggage now I have buy everything again."
Pros: "This leg was continuation of flight that began in Xiamen. Same plane and crew. 787 Dreamliner layout is efficient, generous legroom and recline is better than American carriers. Crew works as team, fast and courteous. Very helpful and professional, Water offered frequently, trash pick up kept cabin neat, bathrooms always clean. Passenger announcements are clear and crisp is English and Chinese."
Cons: "Really, no complaints. More entertainment choices would be appreciated however is not my priority."
Pros: "The flight is easy to check gave us 23kgs check in luggage 46kgs if u have intl flight. Free hotel with breakfast. Not bad at all."
Cons: "They require us to get the luggage and check in again tomorrow."
Pros: "Flew business class. Cabin crew was some of the most attentive I have experienced. Food was very good and nicely presented. Pillows could be better, but had two. Same with blankets. One thick and puffy, the other lighter. Nice for temperature regulation."
Cons: "First leg lax - Tao delayed almost 3 hours. Fortunately the 2nd leg was delayed 1.5 hours. 3rd leg on this itinerary was also delayed, I could have made the flight, but they gave my seat away. It was a bit of a Charlie Foxtrot rearranging flights and overnighting Hotel. 2.5 hours. A supervisor was needed to sort it all out. We will see if the above was bad circumstances or not. I run the same itinerary in reverse on the way home in a week."
Cons: "Why is my passport number wrong?"
Cons: "Why is my passport number wrong?"
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "food was dry"
Cons: "Airplane was loud not with crying babies but passengers yelling over one another. Food was mediocre, and plane had no entertainment consoles."
Pros: "Clean plane. Left on time. A little more seat room than many other carriers."
Cons: "Poor selection of movies. Want more light comedy"
Pros: "Very good service. I have a bad knee and they did a good job of helping. Long layover is ok, they offer free hotel. Side benefit you can be a tourist for a short time."

Cons: "u had to transfer ur luggages even though its the same airline. what a joke? u had to get through numerous security points to get through the airport what the hell?"
Pros: "Price and flight were great. Communicating was small problem. 5 am arrival nothing open so couldn't change money for food, taxi etc. Finally found an ATM that worked. People used their cell phones to try and communicate."
Cons: "Some obstacles with early morning arrival and communications"
Pros: "I liked the plane. 787’s are the smoothest rides."
Cons: "Xiamen Airlines should be applauded for having a direct flight from LA to Qingdao. But they have a lot to learn about the proper service and materials in business class. Not surprisingly, they have gone for the cheapest way to service the customer. Lot to learn."
Pros: "We left 13 mins late but landed 45 mins earlyearly"
Cons: "Nobody could rearrange any flights for me, zero help!"
Cons: "My keychain was ripped off from my baggage despite me hiding it. It was stolen by their baggage handler and the airline refused to admit liability and was protecting it Staff. Xiamenair is a corrupted airline which I will not take in the future!"
Pros: "Crew from lax to xiamen were good they took care of my meal from xiamen to bkk . They offered me their food which was pretty generous of them"
Cons: "I called 24 hrs prior to my flight to ask for Vegetarian meal but that was not available... There was so much problem with food . And the toilets were very very dirty :("
Pros: "crew provide excellent and attentive service. food is good"
Cons: "food could be better"
Pros: "Two meals plus sandwich in between were enough to keep me from getting hungry."
Cons: "Boarding line was too long. There was no grouping which means there was a bit of disorder. A check-in counter agent was super slow. Other agents had a supervisor watching over their shoulders so they were much more efficient. The flight ran out of hot tea... but got refilled later. Need more tea cuz most passengers were Chinese."
Pros: "Crew are nice and friendly."
Cons: "Not a nice experience for a 5 hour flight. I don't understand the comments people are posting regarding the entertainment, it was just one poor Chinese movie, no choice at all. Food was poor. Seats were old and not at all spacious. Thankfully i had an empty seat next to me. This was just like a regular China domestic flight."
Pros: "All announcements in Chinese and English. They keep feeding you."
Cons: "Lots of checkpoints but hey. Why complain about them trying to keep us safe."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "I was denied a boarding pass and was not allowed to transit through China, because of a visa that was needed I was not told about by Kayak.com. Therefore, being the last day I was allowed to stay in Thailand, I had to scramble to find an outbound flight the same day, including paying almost double the cost of the original flight. The Thai check-in agent told me to never transit through mainland China again, because the visa requirement information that is not provided."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly, professional and excellent!"
Cons: "The 10 hour layover :("
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to air traffic control. Subsequently I missed my connecting flight -- Xiamen to Manila that evening and had to spend another night in China. Next flight out of Xiamen was 6pm, Nov 2. Xiamen ground staff was very helpful in booking me the option to fly China Southern to Guangzhou the night of Nov 1, stay for free in a hotel, and then take the 0835 morning China Southern flight from Guangzhou to Manila. It was difficult to identify the right people to speak with and get clear assistance and direction in both Xiamen and Guangzhou."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "couldn't book through from Shenzhen yp Guilin. Had to check-in again at Fuzhou and go through security again."
Pros: "Overall Ok"
Cons: "They stole my laptop on board, and they cannot secure the thief even though we know who it was My bike bag was broken"
Pros: "Their price"
Cons: "Delays, delays and more delays. Then cancellations after!!!"
Pros: "The entertainment system the company provides for international flights is very nice. Movies and games keep you entertained."
Cons: "Flight was Shanghai to Fuzhou, 10 hour layover and Fuzhou to JFK. Our flight from Shanghai to Fuzhou was delayed for 3 hours for "inclement weather" - it was clear in Shanghai. Flight company communicated to progressive, who the flight was booked through, that the flight would be an hour late, so I received a text saying new departure time would be an hour later. This was false. After that hour the only messages we were getting at the airport were "flight is delayed, new departure time will be announced later". We arrived in Fuzhou 3 hours later, at 0300. The bus ride to the hotel provided by the airline is one hour each way, and our connecting flight was 0900, so it was a waste of time to try to get to the hotel. This means we just stayed in the airport all night and boarded our next 15 hour flight with no sleep, no shower and nothing to eat. Customer service for flight would announce turbulence every 3 minutes, even after plane was having turbulence for 10-15 minutes. This freezes entertainment. Etc etc. many other small disorganized things as well."
Cons: "As everyone was lining up at the gate to board, a guy came out yelling at everyone is Chinese. I have no idea what he said but it didn't sound good. We sat on the plane for 1.5 hr waiting to depart. An announcement was finally made that there was some kind of issue with air traffic, we ended up almost 2 hrs delayed. The volume on the media device in front of me was not working. The seats were terribly uncomfortable, my butt was hurting after the first hour."
Pros: "I liked how much space I had when I was on the plane, the meal and thw drink was good."
Cons: "There was no automatic check in online or no place to check where to flight to, for exampleT3 or T4 to the building. For foreigners, this is a big deal because I felt lost and uncomfortable. And there was not a very good reminder of the flight. The ususal reminder should be send out within 24 hours, however, it didn't show on the first trip and it popped up when return but 4 or 5 hours to the flight. This need to be changed!!!"
Cons: "Xiamen air doesn't allow advance check-in and boarding passes. It makes it inconvenient in Korea coming back to Xiamen."
Cons: "Purchased a flight for a relative to fly from Seattle to Manila transiting through China. Airlines said that there should be no visa issue since it was just a transit through China. Upon arrival relative was detained for several hours and not allowed to catch connecting flight because he had no visa. Airlines refused to put him on another flight for free and he was forced to purchase another two tickets (with new additional baggage charges) to leave the country and get to Manila. Airline then refused any refund."
Pros: "The seats on business were comfy, the service excellent, the movie selection was fair to poor, the food was also fair to good largely because they served a heavy lunch rather than a light breakfast."
Cons: "The food and movie selection."
Pros: "Very frustrated experience. Air China, air Canada, budget air, all push responsibilities away. Budget air got my name wrong, too, which would have caused me to not be able to get on the original flight from China anyways."
Cons: "Still I have not been able to get someone to fix my problem for me although I was promised that I could postpone my return flight by one day because of the delay at Victoria airport. Ended up having to buy a return ticket by myself."
Pros: "Crew member helped me get extra space for injured leg by having a passenger next to me find a new seat."
Pros: "Cheap price."
Cons: "The food was not great. No USB charger. The other passengers were noisy."
Cons: "package service. lost my package twice."
Cons: "Delay in China without any explanation."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable space,"
Cons: "Well done"
Pros: "Amazing crew, very polite and helpful Excellent take off and landed super smooth - koodoos to the cockpit team The seats on the aircraft from Beijing to Vancouver was much more comfortable that the aircraft before ( Vancouver to Ho Chi Minh ) but I think that it’s because it is a newer aircraft"
Cons: "The food quality was very poor and portion too small. This could utilize some improvements"
Pros: "Seat very comfortable"
Cons: "Need better food quality and choices."
Pros: "Lovely crew"
Cons: "Check-in was frustrating with split lines, late openings. Could not get boarding pass on kiosk or on website. Kayak is not user-friendly and does not seem to support online check-in. Would not recommend using it to others. Will not use it again."
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: "Boarding was quick & efficient."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable and food was not the best but for the money, it is what you would expect."
Cons: "The same thing as above"
Pros: "In general the flight was fine."
Cons: "When I made my reservation the time to make my connecting flight in Beijing to Dulles (IAD) was 2 hr. Air China shortened the delay to 1 hr. We arrived on time but did not get off the plane until 12:00. They began boarding our connecting flight at 12:15. My husband needed the use of a wheelchair and with the help of the airport staff member we RAN through immigration (flew in from Hong Kong), had to go through security a second time, lost my iPad at security due to our rapid departure. We got to the flight at 12:30 and made it just in time to board. Our luggage could not be transferred in time and arrived the next day. This is just too difficult for people of any age to do...my husband and I are both in our 70s."
Pros: "Air China does have excellent economy class prices on trans-Pacific flights. The planes themselves are not bad, and the flight attendants have been good. Overall it could be worse."
Cons: "Both their website and their check-in staff (at Beijing airport especially) can be terrible and frustrating. it is even difficult to manage flights that you book directly on their own website. The check-in staff are grumpy at best. Catering is as bad as it gets. The airline food is a throwback to the 1970s. Drink selection is poor--no fizzy water/soda water/seltzer. Only regular water, coke and sprite, and no spirits at all. Very bad wine and beer with only one choice for each: Great Wall wine, which is sweet and gross, and warm slimy swill beer. The airline could do better by upgrading the website system and having better staff training for customer service."
Pros: "Ran on time"
Cons: "Food and drink options are limited"
Pros: "On time and great service. Comfortable (with a neck pillow), and good entertainment with recent movies."
Cons: "No charging ports on plane and no vegetarian options for meals."

Pros: "Very clean and staffs was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Need more movies option."
Pros: "Vert spacious and comfortable. Kind staff made me feel comfortable throughout the 10hr flight."
Cons: "I had to stay at Beijing for overnight and took a flight the next day."
Cons: "The layover time at Beijing airport was short but the airport is huge and takes a while to get through. I almost missed my connecting flight twice. When people fly Air China for connecting transfers, the attendants should provide guidance to passengers about ways to expedite this process. My bags weren’t delivered from Bangkok. It would have been nice if the airport attendants at my destination announced that before having passengers wait an hour for the bags to come out because it was evident they were aware beforehand."
Pros: "Service was great, comfort was good"
Cons: "Explanation as to why we didn’t get our luggage till 7 days later, no attempt to contact us"
Cons: "Flight Crew member was very rude and un professional When we ask for his name he refuses so we can mankecformal complain And we ask other members for his name they said its in chineese and difficult for us to understand"
Pros: "Flight attendants are friendly and accommodating. Willing to meet all my reasonable needs. Meals are Ok."
Cons: "Seats are a little small considering my body size."
Cons: "Flight was delayed overnight 6 hours, no communication whatsoever. No attempt to help make connection or apologize.. Service is mediocre at best. Seats are tiny, little to no leg room."
Pros: "Cheapest flight"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "My bag was lost and was not returned to me until 48 hours later."
Pros: "There was a lot of food"
Cons: "There were no vegetarian options"
Pros: "The flight and service itself was good and the flight attendents were very kind and orderly for having to care for so many people"
Cons: "The touch screen didnt work on my chair and when i reached my final destination the airline said they have lost my luggage and are trying to find it. That was three days ago"
Cons: "Long delays zero communication to passengers."
Cons: "Gate crew did not provide any information about delayed departure times. We were told the plane would depart at 20:10 and ended up departing at 22:35. This was already several hours behind the originally scheduled departure time of 15:25."
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "How this company can be part of Star Alliance? Worst travel experience ever in all my life."
Cons: "I've flown over seas several times before. Typically, in my experience, the oversea carriers provide an extra bit of leg room for the long distance travel. Air China apparently doesn't feel the need though. My legs were crammed up in the seats and I felt like I was on an 11 hour budget airliner flight. I checked in for my flight as early as possible, but was told there were not emergency exit rows available. Upon entering the plane, I saw the emergency exit row was filled with elderly people who's feet barely touched the floor. In the case of an emergency, it is supposed to be the responsibility of those in the exit row to assist passengers off the plane. I'm young, able bodied, 6'6" and willing to help, but I was denied an exit row seat? Instead my legs have to spill out into the aisle? It wasn't easy for the flight attendants either, because their service carts kept hitting my legs. I didn't mean to make their job harder, but my legs couldn't physically fit in the seat I was given."
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, the entertainment screen is very laggy and unresponsive. The options were VERY poor and very few."
Cons: "Couldn't check-in online from Beijing. Food is barely edible. Airline stewardess were not the friendliest people. Seats were lumpy. Bathroom faucet was corroded."
Pros: "I hate that u connect me with poi t to point airline that i ly allows for a one check in bag"
Cons: "I ended removing ine of my two check in bag as Myabmar Bational Airline from Yangon to Bangkok only allow one check in bag. Poor connection on your end"
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: "Rude crew. Have had better food on other airlines. Wasn't allowed to listen to music on my iPod at any point during the 9 plus hour flight. Flight was late leaving Beijing, just as it was when i was there 12 days before waiting for another flight one of their flights to Manila and missed my connection flight in Vancouver because of it. Couldn't wait to land and get off the plane."
Pros: "It was okay. The crew was fine, food was okay,"
Cons: "Comfort. Maybe because im a lil bit large, should be more choices on entertainment"
Pros: "Gave me a free upgrade while I was flying alone."
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: "Most of crew members are very nice and kind."
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work"
Cons: "The staff were rude and over all air china is quite disorganized. Their website barely works and it was impossible to get any real answers out of the agents on the phone. I tried to request a celiac or gluten free meal and it took 3 phone calls to get an agent who was aware there were even choices. Also, as I'm aware I'm flying in another country I would have like to see more English speaking competence amongst staff flying an international flight from Asia to Canada and back. The staff were not helpful. Like drones with no time for you. This to me is not service. And an airline is providing a service."
Pros: "Reasonable food. Old chairs but OK."
Cons: "Crazy rules - can't use phones in airplane mode to read books? So so food. Terrible entertainment."
Pros: "Great comfortable flight. Good service and food"
Cons: "Going down the stairs from the plane to the tarmac."
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "Communication was challenging as my first language is english. Entertainment centre would lock up and freeze for all flights (I took 4). The plane seemed old and a bit sketchy. There was no boarding call, I just happened to be standing where I needed to go."
Cons: "The flight was delayed causing me to missed my flight. I actually got to the terminal while my flight CA987 was boarding for LAX but they won't let me board. My seat was sold to a standby pas sender. This happened to like 15 of us. Spent the next 7 hrs at Beijing airport trying to get a flight back to LAX. BEIJING is the most inefficient and worst airport ever."
