Pros: "Logjam Manila traffic, confusion at MNL, late for check in, but staff got me on the plane. Then my suitcase was busted open at Chicago O'Hare on the conveyor belt and ANA issued me a replacement on the spot. Two problems [ not their fault ] handled beautifully. ANA is truly amazing. Thank You !!"

Pros: "Staff were very helpful and the food was good."
Cons: "The place where we at, the aircon/ fan is not working, my husband and I tried but still not working, uncomfortable feeling for a long trip , prior to this we had a long walk to find our gate number because it's in the new building. Our plane delayed so we arrived late at Tokyo causing to missed our plane connection then the crew helped us( very accommodating) for our transfer from Narita international airport to Haneda International airport with Limo bus, 1 & 1/2 hour ride with our luggages and waited for 8 hrs to be on board in a different airline."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "The crew were helpful and nice. It was comfortable."
Cons: "The food was horrible. The movie selections were quite limited."
Pros: "Loved that they offered us ANA postcards on the flight in to send home. I loved that they gave the kids inflatable ANA airplanes. Loved that they were accommodating with our Carry on luggage"
Pros: "Their service"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment is fantastic, always loaded with new movies to watch. The same free drinks (beer/wine/etc)"
Cons: "The boarding was terrible. They called for groups, asked everyone to form 2 lines, but after the lines were formed, closed one boarding lane. Some people were late to board for first-class, causing even more boarding delay and chaos. There were 5 crew at the boarding gate just standing and watching. I selected a seat closer to the rear of the cabin, which received much worse attention than any other flight with ANA. I didn't get asked for a drink until very late, and the second time around there were almost no drink selections available. My seat was also broken and would not recline. Aside from the actual airline, the passengers in the rear were very inconsiderate. There was a big family with several children running around/crying/playing with seat-back trays the entire 11+ hour flight. Again, this is not entirely the fault of the airline, but it was a discomfort."
Cons: "Salad and fruit came Frozen"
Pros: "Very punctual. Service is excellent. I like Tokyo Haneda Airport because it’s smaller and the gates are closer."
Cons: "No complain about the flight and the services."
Pros: "Customer service on ANA was as stellar as always."
Cons: "Chairs are uncomfortably small for an international flight. Was fairly surprised since it's such a long flight."
Pros: "Attentive and polite staff. Comfortable planes. On time flights."
Cons: "I accidentally left an external battery in my check in bag and they stopped me to open my bag and remove it as I was boarding. This is obviously my fault but I wish they had called me up earlier to not disrupt the other passagers and slow the boarding process."
Pros: "Configuration of your 787-800 Busn./ Class,was nothing more than an updated 707 from the past. Crew was good food was average. A flight I may avoid."
Cons: "late again and hot in the cabin. sat on the runway for a while again"
Cons: "The seat in this airplane was downright uncomfortable."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "The fact that my feet got very swollen (twice their normal size) due to the small space - that had the passenger to my right sleeping on top of my right side."
Pros: "People the staff was nice and tried to be helpful"
Cons: "Gates kept changing flight was delayed multiple times the flight had no air so I was sweating the whole time my nose began to bleed. I missed my connecting flight to Okinawa they sent me on a hour long shuttle to another airport to fly out the next day."
Pros: "Food was served with metal utensils."
Pros: "Enough room for relax"
Pros: "Comfort... enough room for relax"
Pros: "Everything flight crew exceptionally nice food and snacks were great flight was smooth other airlines should take a cue from ana even use chilled silverware when serving food not plastic ware like the other airlines no attitudes just awesome service just like it should be ."
Cons: "nothing everything was awesome hope I fly ana again sometime ."
Pros: "787 was beautiful, great features, clean. Flight attendants were polite and helpful."
Pros: "Crew was extraordinary, very conscientious, responsive, and caring to passengers. Boarding was very civilized. Entertainment system equipment worked great, mechanically. Bathroom was respectably more sizable. Thanks to pilot and staff for getting us there safely."
Cons: "Economy seat was hard and uncomfortable. Meal tray is quite small. For international flights: Not ANA's responsibility, of course: the level of Hollywood movie artistry these days is so poor. Perhaps ANA could consider selecting more movie classics and proven gems in their flight selection. More classicTV shows could help, also."
Pros: "The landing was very smooth. I have motion sickness and usually the landing gets me really sick. However I was okay for this one."
Pros: "Great layover options. Timely arrivals."
Cons: "Food options were poor. Wished there were more fresh alternatives, like salads and fruits only."
Cons: "Limited number of movies"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, happy to explain and let us try the lemonade drink"
Cons: "would have preferred more asian food options"
Cons: "Food was disappointing for business class ticket. Seats did not recline all of the way."

Cons: "Very nice services"
Pros: "Again, the flight attendants were kind and tried to be very helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment system was difficult to figure out and maneuver around and it seemed like the choices of movies were all sad."
Pros: "Excellent service, friendly staff, smooth check-in and boarding. I love the simplified, smaller Boarding Pass that can actually fit into your passport and doesn't stick out as a sore thumb."
Cons: "Nothing, really."
Cons: "limited movie selections"
Pros: "The food. the personable flight attendants. The whole experience is amazing."
Cons: "Lack of English movies on the ife. Mediocre headphones in business class."
Pros: "2 inches more legroom in economy than other airlines on that route."
Pros: "Cabin crews are efficient and very polite. Film selection is fine."
Cons: "Food is boring. I always find myself hungry after flight, as I couldn't find much to eat so left a lot. Maybe I should bring my own food from next time..."
Pros: "It was clean and nice"
Pros: "The plane was new and the seats recline quite a bit. The movie selection was solid (though disorganized)."
Cons: "The food service was a plastic bag of goodies (bag of chips, water bottle, toblerone, kit kat, pastry) - what?! The turbulence announcement was made once in english and japanese by the auto-plane service followed by the crew announcing it again in both English and Japanese. The same was done with the duty free. The plane pressure also felt very strong and cause discomfort for the wife. The movie selection was solid (but badly organized) and the TV show selection wasn't terrible. It should all be better. Come on ANA! Contact me for recommendations."
Pros: "overall clean and comfortable, service is great"
Pros: "Cleaner and better service by flight attendant than other US flight company."
Cons: "Smells of food is strong. When I don’t have appetite and feeling sick, the smell makes me feel sick more."
Pros: "Service overall excellent. Attention to needs of pax."
Cons: "Food and beverage can still be improved. Aircraft configuration can be improved. Space too tight to even an average size person."
Pros: "Check-in and boarding were convenient, overall in-flight experience was good and satisfying."
Cons: "Provide beverage/water more frequently during flight to keep passengers hydrated."
Cons: "can maybe be a little bit less strict on luggage weight"
Cons: "Some way to soften the sleeping experience. Memory foam?"
Pros: "Economy very comfortable. Flight attendants gracious and accomodating. Lots of entertainment options. I dreaded this long flight but it could not have been more pleasant. Even the food was good! We were offered drinks about once an hour which I really appreciate."
Pros: "Premium economy equal to NA/Euro business class"
Cons: "Awesome and excellent50"
Pros: "EVA graciously accept a name correction to my ticket where most of my name was correct but the first name wasnt. A big help. Unlike travelling in and out of China. So, i appreciated this help. Flying out at 2 am and arriving Taipei at 5 am was a good time choice too. Service on board was good. Lots of refreshments served. Nice plates used for meals in economy."
Pros: "1.Almost missed the flight because I was not aware of down stair boarding location ( down stair ) there was not sigh to derict you to down stair until I heard someone walking by with The sighing and calling . 2. Too cold. Thank you ! All over all experience was excellent! Sincerely, Su"
Pros: "Crew was the best part. They were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food that I could eat was good, but there should be a no fish option. You have a lot of diet types available to choose from but none guarantee no fish. The process for requesting a special meal online was not clear and confusing. Seats were cramped and entertainment options were limited but still ok for only a 4.5 hr flight."
Pros: "I love that the crew maintains the bathrooms well. To me, EVA has the cleanest bathrooms of all the Asian and North American airlines I have flown to Asia. Crew is courteous and pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The food seems to have gone downhill. I miss the special crackers with seaweed. The hot meal was like North American airline meals - blecchh. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Another passenger took my back pack so I had to wait until the person turned it in. However, the EVA people were very helpful in getting my bag to me."
Cons: "There could be more movies and more American music in the entertainment package. The flight was overbooked by 5 passengers, so I could not get a boarding pass on the first part of my trip, from Bangkok to Taipei. Fortunately they had a boarding pass waiting for me when I got to Taipei."
Cons: "it always seems odd that they don't start loading the back of the plane first, perhaps i'm wrong but it seems logic thus you would not have a huge line of people standing in the aisle putting away stuff while you are mking yur way to the back"
Pros: "Cabin crew works quickly; nobody plodding around."
Cons: "Only thing I would have liked was some pepper with my meals."
Pros: "Fastest service ever from Manila to Houston. Arrived earlier than ETA."
Cons: "The food was horrible. Everything served was with brown sauce. Not toomany choices."
Pros: "Overall I’m very thankful to flight attendants and flight crew."
Cons: "Is it possible on long flights to show video on how to stretch your body , while sitting in your seat?"
Pros: "Good Service"
Cons: "It had a delay, but not too bad"
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "In spite of JFK airport shuting down due to Storm Grayson, EVA airline refused to cancel the flight until 1 hour before the time of departure! They wouldnt listen to my requests to change flights until it was too late. JFK airport put out a notice at 7:30PM stating that they woukd be closed until 7am the next morning. However, i recieved an email from EVA airlines AND Kayak around 9 PM stating that my flight was on time... the airport was closed!! Terrible organization... overall a really bad experience."
Pros: "The vegan meals were tasty."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Seating not wide enough."
Cons: "Seat are too small and have no legs room"
Pros: "Overall experience was very good. Check in was long but clerks were very good."

Pros: "the management of EVA is excellent....from reservation to check in...in flight service is also excellent....seats not as comfortable as China Airlines....and the entertainment choices were disappointing....food taste and presentation was excellent....it is a very good airline...."
Pros: "location design service"
Pros: "This airplane had so much leg room.... :-) made it more comfortable."
Pros: "I slept through most of it"
Cons: "Airplane food"
Cons: "delayed flight terrible asian food no Usb charger"
Pros: "Fairly standard flight, appart from the negatives. The video screens were top notch and made a big difference."
Cons: "The crew were very negligent in providing any water. You could get a drink during meal service, but they didn't come back around a single time for the remaineder of the 11 hour flight. My wife and I went to the back of the plane a couple of times to retrieve our own water. You couldn't depend on asking them for water either, as on two occasions they completely forgot about us. Very frustrating experience."
Pros: "Excellent all around. AFAIK no other airlines offers the 5 course meal Eva does in business. The seats are spacious reverse herringbones. Crew is friendly, and service efficient. Anyone coming from a Western carrier would be impressed."
Cons: "The entertainment selection is a bit weak. Doesn’t bother me as I bring my own entertainment, but may bother some."
Pros: "The movie options were good."
Cons: "The annocments were hard to hear and understand"
Pros: "The staff was very kind and helpful. The flight was more comfortable and enjoyable than I had expected. The food was also surprisingly good."
Cons: "It was too warm on the plane."
Cons: "Do you train your stewardesses not to smile? I had a series of brusk interactions. Not that it mattered too much, but it was a bit odd."
Cons: "The 6 hours layover"
Pros: "Been 10 years since traveling, usually I would fly United Airlines no more. Eva Air is outstanding!"
Cons: "there's not much choices in the tv shows.. there's none like my favorites reruns of Friends and law & order episodes. and more hollywood movies pls evenntho old"
Pros: "The flight and ground crew were all very nice. They are very professional AND nice. The amenities in the plane even in economy is great! Thanks for the toothbrush you provided!!! The food was great as well. My vegetarian kids loved the food! And I love the Sanrio theme!!! Brings back my childhood!"
Pros: "I don't have kids, other people do. The attendants give each child a play package to keep them busy and bring out their food early to keep them from making a fuss. There's more than enough to keep adults busy; movies, games, shows, food"
Cons: "Other than taking a flight that was way too long for my legs nothing. It's a great airline."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and attentive especially to the older passengers"
Cons: "Nothing speaks volumes than an on time flight. While there was ample time for in between flight changes for leisure and rest, a delayed flight affects passenger demeanor and satisfaction the most."
Pros: "The plane was nice, seats comfortable, flight staff was super nice, ride was very smooth, like all previous Eva air flights."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great as usual :)"
Pros: "I love the entertainment system. I only wish the flight was longer!"
Cons: "When the stewardesses went around to offer coffee, I would have preferred tea, but didn't have the nerve to ask for tea instead of coffee."
Pros: "Service and Food are good compare to other airlines."
Cons: "No complaint."
Pros: "Overall service was amazing."
Cons: "Flight attendants were walking too fast in the cabin. Sometimes right in front of my face while I was walking to the lavatory without warning. They just sneak and cut you off without saying excuse me, sorry, or simple letting me know they're passing through. I don't mind but I was afraid that I would crash into them and injure either of us."
Pros: "Nothing. I find it ridiculous because I find a good deal on a flight I don't get credit for any of the miles!! I fly to Thailand 3-4 times a year and all I want is to get good service and when I have a three hour layover in Taipei to b able to go to the gold card lounge and relax!!"
Cons: "The check in counter opened an hour prior to departure. That wasn't acceptable , make me so worry."
Pros: "Food Entertainment had a great selection on one flight, not so good on the other Crew was very good on one flight, not so good on the other"
Pros: "Great food service, comfortable chairs, and adequate entertainment on the screen."
Cons: "Crew members pulled out my earphones when they could have just asked me to take them out. It was a bit pushy of them and others still had their earphones in and they let them leave it in upon landing"
Pros: "Lots of movie options, the food was good (had multiple food dish options for each meal)"
Pros: "Good and pleasant service, new plane very clean including regular WC cleanups"
Cons: "Boarding could have been done in groups"
Cons: "On time boarding"
Pros: "I did not like it."
Cons: "Don't offer a flight for an overseas destination that you cannot fly to. my flight was canceled so I did not need this connecting flight and had to wait two months for the ticket money to be fully refunded, after many phone calls."
Cons: "It was comfortable flights, reasonable price , very nice crew, they got me all I need."
Pros: "Great crew. Food. Lay flat bed."
Cons: "I was not able to get an aisle seat when I requested it at the check-in desk. I understand the flight was full though so it was not possible."
Pros: "More leg room for economy class would always be much appreciated."
Pros: "Customs really fast"
Pros: "Less waiting times in Beijing airport."
Pros: "Economy class can’t be better."
Pros: "Excellent service from flight attendants."
Cons: "Restroom could be kept cleaner"
Cons: "Just happy to be on any flight back to LAX. Once on the plane, Hainan was good and I would fly them again."
Pros: "to have transfer personalized service was an excellent service and great relief, because I didn't known the airport, had to pick luggages, then change terminal and check in again. the person walked along with me, all the way. she was kind, caring, and helpful."
Pros: "i like tv which has many movies"
Cons: "i dont like because i still not take my baggage"
Pros: "Special meals were delivered very quickly. Enjoyed all the nature films. Stewardesses were very helpful and spoke enough English to understand."
Cons: "Entertainment system broken the whole flight. very boring"
Cons: "The airline lost our luggage which in turn made us lose our connecting flight to Chicago. The staff did not help and the manager kept walking off to assist other people while in the middle of conversation! We could have made our flight of they were a bit more helpful and attentive. The staff was very unprofessional, extremely rude and ignored our concerns of not being able to sit with our 7year old daughter, at least one of us! They found us a flight to Seattle which then connected to Chicago but expected us to pay for the plane tickets since they denied responsibility for having lost our luggage. They said it was our fault we missed our flight. It was such a terrible experience for my family."
Pros: "Even though the communication in English was quite difficult with the majority of the flight attendants, one particular attendant was super nice and went to any length to take care of problems I and other non-Chinese speaking passengers experienced. Arriving in Beijing, I was worried about the proceedings as mentioned in the negativ comment box, but an employee from Hainan Airlines went to pick up passengers transferring to Seoul and take care of the check in process."
Cons: "Before boarding the flight, it was not possible to check in online to my connecting flight from Beijing to Seoul. I didn't receive the necessary information and even after I was told about it after calling an employee of Korean Air, I didn't work. The person I spoke with on telephon herself didn't understand, why the system didn't accept my attempt to check in online. That was quite bothersome since I could get a boarding ticket for my Korean Air flight beforehand. Normally I would have to leave the transit area, line up to check in, receive the ticket, go through all check-ups again and go to the gate of departure. My flight left just 2 hours after arriving in Beijing and at airports as big as Beijing, that could have been very close to not being able to make it in time."
Pros: "Crew services were excellent , boarding on time"
Cons: "The seats we’re little bit tights also the food wasn’t so Good because not for foreigners taste it’s chinese way."
Cons: "My remote didn’t work so I could see show but the headphones didn’t work either so I could hear them. I asked the flight attendant about this and got a “sorry, it’s broken” response. This also meant that my reading light was in operable as well as the flight attendant call light so I had to borrow my neighbors. Not the best experience or resolution."
Cons: "Only one member of staff for a lot of people connecting from chongqing. Even though arrived with a lot of time to spare there were many problems and in the end i only made the flight as they delayed it and i sprinted through the airport."
Cons: "Can get refunds on double booked flights"
Pros: "The flight went smoothly, once we began."
Pros: "Not a crowded flight so had an extra seat. That was really nice."
Cons: "It was all fine."
Cons: "we need to check in again at Beijing airport. the restroom is so terrible ."
Pros: "Business class service"
Pros: "Excellent service, good movies"
Cons: "Seats a bit tight fitting. Food was average."
Pros: "Flight was fine, very few passengers made it pretty low key."
Cons: "Food wasn't my favorite, but could always be worse. The security process at the Beijing Airport was unbelievably slow and chaotic - has nothing to do with the airline, but made catching my flight super stressful."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment, and the food."
Cons: "I didn't like that I felt invisible and had to remind the staff for a simple glass of juice. When giving out snacks and food they looked over me several times and didn't even ask after they had served the other two people if I needed anything. I even asked in Chinese. Just was weird and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good flight attendant"
Pros: "Food and crew are excellent"
Cons: "My luggage got lost, no one to help resolve the issue"
Cons: "I booked a flight to Thailand with 2 stops in china. Nowhere when I booked, in the confirmation or emails back and forth from kayak did it have ANY visa warning. Even if you are only connecting and passing through china you must do so in 24 hours. KAYAK had given me 25 hours of layovers and FAILED TO INFORM OR EVEN WARN ME OF THIS BEING AN ISSUE. I was stuck at Toronto airport for over an hour frantically trying to book a connecting flight out of Beijing so I could take 1 of the 3 flights I paid for. So thank you for having me forfeit 2 flights due to your lack of information kayak. WILL NOT BE USING YOU AGAIN."
Pros: "flight was changed due to military influence. directly to seattle."
Pros: "I upgraded to business class. The crew was very helpful in the process. I had a fantastic experience. Loved the food. Entertainment options are slightly limited... I didn't watch any of the movies anyway."
Cons: "Chongqing airport is a mess. Poorly designed and managed. Also there was no Hainan staff to be seen on the ground, which is unhelpful. All the check-in and boarding are managed by airport employees, who are completely unable to answer any questions. Boarding was at a remote gate and very chaotic. No line whatsoever."
Pros: "That it got me home."
Cons: "I was scolded for having my smartphone out (in airplane mode) two hours into the flight. And noticed that other people were sneaking pictures with their phones of the flight map, food, etc., before the crew caught them. I could not watch my preloaded movies, read my Kindle app or listen to podcasts. And my in-flight entertainment monitor had a glitch, which barely made it usable. But I could not explain that to the crew nor ask why I could not use my iPhone, because the cabin crew's English consists of set phrases, not fluency. This airline a serious rethink about flying international. I won't be using it again."
Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "Nothing out of the ordinary"
Pros: "Very friendly"
Cons: "See above. Delayed flights!!!"
Pros: "The plane chosen was good spacious model."
Cons: "The choice of food was bad for me because I am a vegetarian. They had dishes with all meat through it. :-("
Pros: "Every aspect was top notch for an economy seat. The staff was attentive, the flight was super smooth, the entertainment decent and the seats comfortable. On time and hassle free! Would definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "this is the first time I take hanan airplane,it was very comfortable .the service is nice,the flight is clean,the food is good.thanks for all the flight workers.hope can take hanan flight next time."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. People were friendly on the flight and did everything they could to make people comfortable. It was delayed by two hours, which caused problems for the rest of the trip."
Cons: "Because of the two hour delay, I was going to miss my next flight. I told the flight attendant about my problem. She said that it would be fine, and they would help me once I landed. That didn't occur."
Pros: "best food and drink than any other airline that I took and air crew are very friendly."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and well trained. The Business Class seats were comfortable and the lie-flat configuration worked well. Providing Bose noise-cancelling headphones for the flight was a nice touch."
Cons: "The temperature of the Business Class cabin was too hot. Also the Airbus 330 did not have individual ventilation registers above the seats, so no additional airflow was available to make adjustments. The US titled movies were heavily censored rendering comedies unfunny and the dramas un-dramatic. The Hainan counter staff routinely refused to enter an Alaska Airlines mileage plan number (a partner airline) into their system unless forced."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Seat is hard, food is not good. Not many new movies that people can watch."
Pros: "Love the lie flat seats."
Cons: "We arrived early for our flight, but the check in counters don't open until 3 1/2 hours before the flight. So we had to wait for 2 hours to check in and get boarding passes so we could go thru security and get to the business lounge. The food In the lounge was very good. The food during the flight was poor. Couldnt plug in my cpap during the flight, so couldn't sleep."
Pros: "Lots of movies, Tv, and music to keep entertained. Many good Food options and drink choices were great!"
Cons: "Seats a little small and by the time the food came to us they only had one option left so that was a bummer."
Pros: "The on board crew were pleasant for the most part. It was a full flight so they were also working hard. Check-in was easy, and the gate area had plenty of space to wait to board. We did get some sort of unspecific voucher for something for the entertainment system not working... have to log onto their site to even find out what it's for."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work, so luckily we had loaded up devices with stuff for the kids. We were hopeful that my son could watch a couple of movies, but they tried to reset it... at least we got a voucher. One seat back was missing the USB outlet and one didn't work in our row of three. Regular power (of which there are two... why don't the window seat get one?) was half working... so luckily everything was charged. The gate agent threatened to boot anyone off the plane to the next day if you tried to board before your zone was called... that seemed questionable."
Pros: "They got me home"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2-3 times with no explanation. The food in the gate was trash . After boarding we waited on board for over a hour before take off , during which time someone was duct taping the inside of the plane together and I sat on a broken seat . The single flight attendant refused to take trash from people who didn’t finish their beverage . While the plane was reversing there was a huge bang and the plane shook as if we hit something . I observed gate agent repeatedly tell customers that she couldn’t help them find out if their flight was delayed and to just look at the computer board ."
Cons: "Put on Turkish air landed 12 hrs late lggage still missing"
Pros: "While I've ranked the crew as poor, that isn't a reflection of the entire crew. The flight crew and check-in team were fine, the boarding I have as mediocre due to delay, but I don't put that on the staff."
Cons: "My issues are two part: 1 - I wasn't informed that I was required to retrieve my luggage from the carousel on this flight from George Town to Toronto. I thought perhaps I missed something, however, the three other couples that were in the same predicament I was weren't aware either. This caused a massive headache, the instructions were superbly poor on how to retrieve the luggage, and the process was completely a waste of time. We had to talk with three different people, the person that took us back to the carousel showed no urgency despite us all explaining that we were on a short layover, and might miss our next flight, and even though we had our passes to get through customs, we were made to wait in line to have our baggage inspected. A completely broken process that could've been avoided with a friendly reminder at check-in. 2 - Once I was able to retrieve my luggage I picked it up off the carousel only to find the handle on one piece of luggage had been ripped off, and the plastic lining on the other bag was destroyed. Admittedly I find this to be no surprise after seeing how mine and everyone else's luggage was handled so poorly upon being loaded into the cargo. I saw my luggage being tossed 3-5 feet into the cargo area - literally picked up, and with complete disregard flung like it was a trash bag being thrown into the dumpster. Since I didn't have time to discuss this with any staff due to my prior issue and being unable to find a representative once I landed back in Vancouver, I called the next day to discuss this over the phone, but the representative explained that I was only able to make a complaint in-person at the time of baggage retrieval. The person was absolutely useless and unwilling to help. This was by far the worst treatment I've had at any time in my life while flying any airline. The trip to George Town was with American Airlines, and even though it was longer, and a tad bit more expensive, the service I had with them was stellar by comparison to my experience with AirCanada. Going forward I will only be using AC when there are absolutely no other options."
Cons: "This was probably the worst handled flight I have been on; there was first a slight delay, then a longer delay, then a much longer delay, all of which one could find out only after checking online; there were no announcements about the delay until after the scheduled time of departure; then there was another announcement that there was a mechanical problem and we'll be apprised of the situation at 7pm (the flight was scheduled at 6:25). The person at the counter disappeared. At 7:30, the gate changed to a different flight altogether--still no announcement, still no person at the gate. When a different person finally appeared and I asked her what happened to the Pittsburgh flight, she said, it's here, it'll be departing at this precise gate shortly. At that exact time, the PA system had an announcement that the flight to Pittsburgh is now scheduled at gate 86 at 7.01 (yes, 7:01, even though it was already after 7:30). When we went to gate 86, there, of course, was another flight there. After waiting some more, the woman at the first counter now appeared at gate 86 and said the flight was to be at gate 88. Until the very end when we boarded, gate 88 continued to say the flight was to Columbus. Absolutely abysmal customer service. (Even the boarding was handled badly, but at that time we didn't even care.) I am never recommending Air Canada."
Cons: "The airline crew keep on pushing back the departure due to bad weather. No discipline while boarding passengers. Delay after landing to open the door. No clear instructions about the delays"
Pros: "The seat beside me was vacant, so I had extra room."
Cons: "Flights in the late evening from Toronto to Ottawa always seem to be delayed. We spent a lot of time boarding, and a lot of time de-icing before take off. There would have been plenty of time to serve refreshments during de-icing. But refreshments and dismemberment of ear phones only began once the plane was airborne. There was not enough time to service all the passengers at that point. I'm not sure why Air Canada cannot at least give you ear phones when boarding. And why cannot refreshments be served during de-icing?"
Pros: "staff was great checkin at the airport was a breeze and love the 2 checked free luggage for international flights. food was mediocre but what do you expect, I'm just glad we got 2 meals and 2 snacks. great touch."
Cons: "only issue was the fact the online checkin was unavailable to us for some reason which basically left my girlfriend and I sitting in separate rows in between 2 people for 17 hours. entertainment was also pretty lacking with only a few movies available."
Pros: "The extra $50 seats were roomy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no one knew why!... Plane had been sitting ready at the airport for hours. Novice flight attendants, they each picked on different things others missed just before them. No consistency, seats left reclined during takeoff and landing for example. One way there was drink service once even though it was a smooth flight and the return had drink service twice even though it was bumpier! Entertainment does NOT work on androids, it is NOT the AirCanada app they tell you to download prior to the flight, it's an AirCanadaRouge.pk file that needs to be downloaded in flight! Which means we're stuck paying for the iPad and of course only with cc because there's no wifi for debit cards.... AC needs to stop this insanely mediocre and yet expensive monopoly."
Cons: "I never got on that flight because the flight from Montreal to Toronto was delayed so I would have missed the connection. The flight from Montreal was late. I showed up a the airport three times before I got on a plane. Air Canada asked me to check in online but the system didn't work. Because of the storm, Air Canada couldn't even place me on hold so I had to go to the airport earlier in the day. When I complained about not being able to check in online, they asked gaslighted me and kept repeating that their system was "a great product" and that there was no way it didn't work. One person finally told me that it was because I had a pet in cabin. I could have saved a lot of frustration if someone had told me that. I also think that for a flight that left late and caused me to change plans and leave on a different day with another delayed flight because of the luggage conveyor belt that didn't work - which paralyzed an entire airport - they could have offered us a complimentary meal on the plane."
Pros: "The Plane Flew"
Cons: "The plane was delayed. Missed my connection because the plane was delayed. No food choice, just whatever they gave me. Food was poor. Entertainment system is dated beyond belief. Staff was in no way helpful or informative regarding rebooking my flights. We were told we would be met by representatives when we got off the plane, we were not. (Same goes for my Flight from Hamburg, to Toronto) Leaving a good amount of people stranded and trying to make the final boarding call of their connecting flight."
Cons: "Late flight the crew did.t care and many people missed connections. The customer service at the airport desk was understaffed slow and rude. They we're not helpful in trying to get new flights booked and I felt like it was asking a huge favor even though it was Thier delayed flight that made me miss my connection."
Pros: "Well, it did leave on time."
Cons: "I knew the seat pitch in economy was tight, but nothing prepared me for how truly abysmal it is. I’m 6’1”. My knees were jammed into the seat pocket. The fun continued when the passenger in front of me reclined their seat. I had to angle both my knees to the side. Without a doubt the most uncomfortable flight I’ve ever done. On a side note, AC switched equipment on this flight several times. Each time the ‘system’ would split up our seats. I had to call in five separate times to pick new seats. Also, at the gate they were asking passengers to voluntarily check in carry-on as there may not be enough room on the aircraft. First time I’ve ever heard that."
Pros: "Ease of service and efficiency."
Cons: "few movies"
Cons: "Very cramped like sardine tin. Not enough flight info boards in airport and they were hard to read m"
Cons: "Air Canada is always late in my experience. I always end up waiting at the gate for the inbound flight which happens to be late. It is so annoyingly dishonest, considering that the flight is announced as on-time up until minutes before the departure time. When all along they know the incoming flight is late. After we boarded the plane at origin, we spent 15 minutes at the gate and quite a bit on the runway. When nearing the DCA, the plane took a complete detour went near Baltimore and then Annapolis and then flew back to near Gaithersburg as if it was intentionally wasting time on the air. Upon landing in DCA we had to wait 15 minutes on the taxiway waiting for the gate to clear. The (one hour long) flight that was scheduled to land at 10:20pm landed just before midnight. Air Canada is awful. This happens every time I fly with Air Canada and their conduct is just cheap and dishonest."
Pros: "Knowing that there is not enough head-room for carry-on luggage, I joined to volunteer to check-in my carry-on luggage. Service agent at the counter is very helpful and great service attitude. I asked if they have plastic twistee so I can lock my carry-on luggage before check it in. Unlucky there is none. I hope Air Canada can consider providing this ( I got from Cathy pacific before at check-in luggage counter) since they may help re-assure traveler like me who don't prepare a lock for the hand carry suitcase."
Cons: "1) Flight delay for 1 hour - that is not good 2) Choice of movie are really limited - many are old and very very old movies even though are blockbuster 3) I bought carrot and celery stick; which are wet and in plastic bag => so I cannot avoid making the table wet too! Thought it should be in a simple plastic container => even though I agree to minimal use of plastic for environmental reason. 4) The insufficient headroom for carry-on really slow the boarding time and cause delay in departure. Need better idea to help with this. may be for those who volunteer to check-in their carry on, they get a coupon for priority to board next time?"
Pros: "Excellent value for Economy flight"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, very pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "No flight entertainment at all."
Pros: "It was OK but it had to be better than the flight to Canada which was delayed 24 hours (just for bad measure). It's a cheap flight and AC warn that the "in seat" screen is no longer provided so criticism on this basis is a bit silly. I noted that the free iPads in Premium Economy provided more films but they were so dated!!! Food in PE was much better as was the general service. It cost quite a bit in the "Auction" but it was worth it I think."
Cons: "This relates to the outward trip when we only found out at the check-in that the plane was postponed to the following day. OK, we were put up in a hotel for the night but 24 hours there was not the best day of my life. I wasn't too impressed with the hotel."
Cons: "weather grounded non stop flight... required my finding a hotel for overnight... loss of MSP hotel, and two days rental car, too... costly and not reimbursable because "act of nature"... earliest way to MSP they said was via Nashville w/long layover... then connecting to Delta upon arrival in MSP, checked bag didn't arrive... it was filled w/medical equipment and AC couldn't tell us where it was... Delta bent over backwards to assist... AC was non-commital and not helpful at all... waited for incoming flights at the airport MSP for 8 hours... no bag... finally, Delta gave us vouchers for dinner and put us in a hotel... when it as really Air Canada's fault... etc, etc..."
Pros: "Flight attendant was helpful when I had a personal health issue."
Cons: "Pay for snacks on a 5 hour flight? What do you really get for a ticket that cost over $500. US? I paid for noodle soup. They gave me a fork to eat it after they bumped into me and spilled the hot liquid on my sleeve and slacks. Then when I went to eat it I realized that the noodles were not cooked through. they were rubbery. the liquid was tasty, but with a fork how much can you taste. Ended up giving it back after eating about 1/4 of it. Seats had no leg room even though was a larger plane. Had restless leg from the very beginning. Legs were in pain the whole time."
Pros: "My mother's attendants and the flight crew were very friendly and courteous to her."
Cons: "No information or communication about bringing your own food or snacks on board. No food, snacks,entertainment or immigration forms were available. There was some food for purchase but if you didn't have a credit or debit card then you couldn't buy it. My mother was in a wheelchair waiting to board in Toronto and would have bought food to either eat there or carry on the plane but another passenger was severely reprimanded for getting out of her wheelchair and going to the bathroom, so my mother was intimidated to stay seated and not go to the bathroom nor ask any questions as to if she could go and buy some food or snack to eat while she was waiting. Only juices were served. She was flying since 11 am and arrived at 9:30 pm without any food. The website as well as all emails should inform about luggage weight as well as food and entertainment. On a layover the attendants should be more cooperative with disabled passengers and allow them to use the bathroom as well as to go and buy food."
Pros: "Everything. The plane was immaculate, the seats were comfortable, the food was delicious, the flight crew was friendly and professional. Air Canada's abillity to transit passengers from the US to international destinations is truly remarkable and must be best in class. I went from an inbound flight from Houston, through Immigration and to the gate for my flight to London in under 15 minutes!"
Pros: "Of the five planes we were on, all but one had comfortable seating (I'm 6'1" tall)"
Cons: "The lady helping us through the Toronto airport between flights made my wife cry. We had to stop to go to the restroom on the way to our gate, and the lady complained when I waited to go in after my wife came out. I told her I was going to do that, but she was apparently pre-occupied when I told her, because she was looking right at me when I said it. I then told her that I had let her know that was my plan, but she denied it, then told my wife she was just one of a hundred people. This left my wife in tears. This was a stain on an otherwise good flying experience, but it' tarnished the whole."
Pros: "At fisrt the flight was over booked. Once we had boarded their was a technical issues with the aircraft, we had to sit in our aiys with nothing to do for just under 2 hours. With this delay in mind their was no form of a free drink as a mini compensation. They had no choice of food."
Pros: "That even though there is a delay, we still made it around the same time"
Cons: "That there was a delay in the first place"
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times. Was tracking boarding from the Air Canada app as there was nowhere to sit by the departure gate or screens. The app didn't advise that the flight was boarding (unlike other apps such as BA). I missed my flight and they insisted on charging me more than what I paid for the entire ticket just to return home. I got back to London to find that my luggage didn't make the journey. Staff at Air Canada were unfriendly and unprofessional."
Pros: "Flight was good. Left a bit late but made up time"
Cons: "Security took nearly an hour to get through even though it didn't look very busy."
Pros: "This was my first time in Canada never been there before I had a great time until that one moment I had to deal with workers from air Canada except one agent at the ticketing desk....I had checked in online the day before however I had some card issues because they got shut down by my bank and due to the holiday in America I was unable to call my Bank prior to the airport....got to the airport and tried to explain that all I wanted to do was pay for my bag with cash ...but no one took the time out to listen each time i tried explaining myself I was send to a different location to join another line ....by the time I got to someone who was willing to listen my flight was closed ..her name was Aurora and gave me nothing but attitude when I explained my story......anyways finally got to ticketing and a met the only agent that day who exercise some level of customer service that day...if only I could remember her name ...sigh she went the extra mile because at this point I was frustrated and unsure if I would make it out of the country a sane person due to the amount of chaos I experienced prior. She got LISTENED .....SHE TOOK THE TIME TO LISTEN...got me on a new flight and went above an beyond to assist me that morning I was on the verge of a breakdown at that point all other staff member was very disgusting not only to my self but the other individuals who had mishaps that morning."
Cons: "I didn't care about putting my own tags on my luggage or I had to put it on the conveyor. But when I get to my destination and no luggage to be found, I was pissed. The only thing I didn't do was put my luggage on the plane and when I did get it, the luggage was damaged. My luggage went from Kingston - Toronto - Barbados, back to Toronto with nothing wrong with the luggage. They cancelled the last flight to Kingston,so they put us in a hotel. But from Toronto back to Kingston was hell when we got to Kingston."
Pros: "I think cost me without needing to go back and forth"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled after already waiting through a 3.5 hour delay. The inbound flight was delayed due to weather, and as a result, there was no crew available for our flight. This left us stranded at Pearson at 3am with no Air Canada agents available for assistance. After a two hour wait on hold with Air Canada customer service, we were told the earliest flight we could get on was two days later. Unacceptable. We ended up having to buy tickets with WestJet. Weather delays are understandable. Not having sufficient customer service agents available for assistance nor having enough crew on call is inexcusable and incompetent."
Pros: "Very helpful crew and staff assisting with golf buggy ride"
Pros: "The price for a round trip flight Philadelphia to Barcelona was fantastic. Unfortunately, this was a case of you getting what you pay for. Both my husband and I were very unhappy with the entire experience."
Cons: "Airplanes were very uncomfortable, flight crew was unfriendly (smiles were scarce and you felt you annoyed them if you wanted anything), service took too long (perhaps not enough personnel for number of passengers), plane was extremely warm, food was only fair -- all other international flights I've taken have had much better food and comforts). We had long layover on return flight in Toronto and airport and Air Canada personnel were not very helpful or accommodating. When we asked for a suggestion on where we could go in the airport to kill several hours (eating, drinking, watching TV), were were told by many that the airport is bad and we're given conflicting or poor answers. Intimately the advice given put us having to go thru security and Custims again (even though we already had) and that process was extremely disorganized and time consuming."
Pros: "Very pleasant flight; excellent entertainment options to while away the time. Excellent crew."
Cons: "I was held aside at the customs area and had a difficult time figuring out what was going on. Signage was less than helpful, and staff were unaware of why I was being held. After over 30 minutes during which the gate staff could only tell me to wait and watch for my initials on the electronic board, the staff learned that some bags on my arrival flight had been accidentally diverted to Canadian customs rather than US customs, and passengers could not proceed to connecting flights until our bags were located. The customer service staff then worked very hard on our problem. I was instructed to re-book my flight, since by now the doors were about to close - but that customer service person could not re-book me, and I had to queue up again for another agent. When I got to the desk, that agent was able to get me approved to board my flight sans bag, ran me to the front of the Immigration line, and got me to my gate in time to board. I deeply appreciate her assistance, as my family was already on the plane."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, crew were attentive, food was excellent, the "pod" was comfortable and I did not use the entertainment"
Cons: "Would have liked more info as to how to work the gizmos - had to ask how to recline my seat and never did get to grips with the entertainment. The Fast Pass specificaly said it was for disembarkation at London and so I did not realise I could have used it to get through security for ongoing flight"
Pros: "it took off and landed"
Cons: "multiple incorrect a/c notices by email containing incorrect information. Started with the confirmation of the original flight booking. It had the origin and destination mixed up but had the correct cities. That's impossible with the corresponding flight #'s. Called AC, they said; oh well. Then multiple notices in email of changes to times of depart/arrival/gates. Showing these email changes to A/ C Gate Staff, they said each of those 8 notices for departures or return flights was wrong info and they concluded; "oh well". They don't care, and they weren't interested in reporting the errors to IT people."
Pros: "The flight attendant."
Cons: "Toronto Terminal F is kind of how I envision a third-world country. At least at the higher-number gates, it's very dreary, with an occasional flying insect and signs hanging from the ceiling. Worse is the lack of air conditioning and the sporadic wi-fi service. Worst of all was the almost two-hour delay and changing our departure gate at least five times. Two fellow passengers (one a native of Toronto) said it was always like that. The trip from Toronto to London and back was fine, but I'll try very hard to avoid Air Canada and its Terminal F."
Pros: "One person assisting passengers whose flights had been canceled was gracious and skillful."
Cons: "My flight, 370 was canceled. Initially, one of the AC staff at customer service was overwhelmed and impatient. The next flight was delayed by about seven hours. My baggage didn't arrive in Toronto. I found it extremely difficult to learn where the baggage could be, spent hours on hold with Air Canada and then Dynamex, and waited four days to receive my bag. I was with about 100 people at a summer camp. The staff created a funny skit about AC, Dynamex (sp?) and the endless "your call is important to us" tape recording. I understand that flight plans must be canceled and changed due to weather, but AC relies too heavily on automated "service.""
Cons: "Our inbound flight was two hours late. When connecting through Toronto, they lied to us. They said that the outbound connection was on time, that we'd likely missed it. Then, after standing through their requisite customer service line with only one open desk for two full flights, we were told to sprint through customs. We arrived, breathless to find the connection was delayed. We were told that they don't post the delayed connections for fear that passengers won't run or that U.S. customs will close. Uncommunicative and untruthful, their service is atrocious."
Cons: "Hair in my breakfast and they wouldn't give me another meal also by the time they reached me all the options but the overlooked egg was available they didn't explain just dumped the meal on my tray table and when I asked for the other option was told straight out no... I've flown on many airlines and that was by far the most foul meals I've ever had budget airlines do better won't fly ac anytime again.... My original flight was delayed 5 hours to connect so I was transferred to another flight and my bags didn't make it so I went 4 days without luggage also"
Pros: "India ( flight attendant) provided very poor customer service during flight. I have been a nurse for 24 years and i simply asked for a cool cloth for a gentleman sitting next to me that was feeling ill and very pale. India returned with 5 emesis bags and no cloth and never once came back to check on the gentleman!!! I really wish it was not a full flight because i would have advised him to puke all over everything. How hard was it to provide a cool cloth?? Really? I know first class has wash cloths and that was an easy request. And the fact that she never came back to see if we needed anything or to tell us she did not have a cloth for him. POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE!! I will think twice about flying Air Canada again. Thank god for good citizeans willing to help strangers in a time of need."
Cons: "Poor ccustomer service by flight attendants and no follow up on ill passengers."
Pros: "The on-board and Abbotsford-based crew acknowledged that we had all had a very long day. All thanked us for our patience."
Cons: "We were informed when we arrived at the gate that the flight was to be delayed by 8 hours because of mechanical problems. 8 hours! No offer was made to book us on a different flight. No one, at anyplace along the line actually apologized for asking us to wait around for 8+ hours when the flight was delayed. We did not even know what the mechanical problem was. When we finally were able to board the flight, the captain made a personal appearance in front of the cabin to tell us that he and his crew had been called at home to fly a broken plane. He briefly explained that there were no available planes to swap out and the repair required all day. Inexcusable! Our treatment did not measure up to the Canadian tradition of courtesy and politeness."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about it."
Cons: "The crew needs to learn how to effectively execute the meal/drink service. It takes entirely too long. Also, on an international Flight, over three hours, you don't provide a snack!? And the small cup of soda we get takes over an hour for some people to get. The seats are entirely too close. I'm 5'9 and my knees were digging into the seat in front of me. Then the guy in front of me reclined and I had absolutely no room. I had to turn to the side. We didn't board until around the time we were supposed to depart. We were over a hour behind schedule. They held the plane to get a passenger's bag off because he was stuck in customs. Unless it's a funeral I need to get to, I'm not flying Air Canada again."
Pros: "We arrived nearly on time."
Cons: "They changed our gate three times and boarding was inefficient (it took them almost an hour to load a small plane) and led to a late takeoff. The customs process was ridiculous. Crew did not seem to care. No food was provided on a 6 hour flight that boarded at 6pm. Most people would not have thought that they needed to eat dinner before the flight. You had the option of purchasing snacks. The people in the rear of the plan did not receive the honor of buying snacks (or even getting a cup of water) until 3 or 4 hours into the flight. Uncomfortable seats. Avoid Air Canada until they get their act together or they lower their prices to reflect their new status as a discount airline."
Pros: "Got on flight"
Cons: "Got boarding pass but no signs to differentiate Air Canada counters (US-bound, domestic, international). Went to wrong counter and had to run to right one Booked flight. When I checked bag, I got a standby with hope that I could get on flight. Fortunately, I was able to make it. If I had connecting flights, it would have been a nightmare Same boring old movies and TV - 2 broke girls episodes. Just drink, nothing else for morning flight. Something to eat? It is an international (Can-US) flight Slow unloading of luggage"
Pros: "Food was actually pretty good and the staff did reasonably well even though most of the customers were clearly unhappy."
Cons: "A majority of flights run by Air Canada to the US were delayed. If this had been due to weather, fine, but at least our delay was caused by mechanical malfunction. Our flight was delayed for 5 hours due to multiple different mechanical issues including that the bathroom would not function during the entire flight, the wing flap had issues and the door would not seal correctly. The flight immediately preceding ours to Minneapolis was also delayed by over 4 hours. Surprisingly the flight before that also had a bathroom malfunction that prevented customers from using the bathroom. If this was the exception we could understand, but looking at the history of our flight, it's only on time 23% of the time. The poor customer service people must hate their lives. Something needs to change."
Cons: "Flown business class 4 times with China southern. But their beds never lay completely flat. Always have a hump in the middle so I raise the back a bit to compensate"
Pros: "I arrived at my destination."
Cons: "The food was not very good. Amenities such as toothbrush or mouthwash should be available on long haul flights."
Cons: "Flight delayed, Missed connecting flight Not good response from ground crew members"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was very professional and worked hard to please the passengers in service and care. Food in business class was really good, and in fact, were generous portions. Surprisingly good choice of movies in entertainment."
Cons: "No sweeteners fondrinks like coffee, just sugar. I would really suggest to China Southern to stock sweeterners for passengers who don’t use sugar."
Cons: "Milk and sugar in the coffee."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Over 2 hours late on departure"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "2h delay for unknown reason, missed connection"
Pros: "Service and food were fine. Baggage allowance was generous."
Cons: "There was very little seat space... seemed narrower than usual and knees touched seat in front all the time unless I got them in one particular position, then it was just a very light touch. I don't recall being on a less comfortable flight. It's a shame that it was an 11 hour flight. The next flight was far better although only 7 hours. However, after the first flight I really appreciated the extra space so very much!!"
Pros: "After reading reviews on trip advisor about some specific problems such as customer service and food options, I am happy to say that my experience actually excelled in these two areas. I will be flying with China Southern again."
Cons: "The same things everyone doesn't like about the common flying experience, extended to a 15 hour flight."
Pros: "Busines class seats (pods)."
Pros: "Service was excellent !"
Pros: "Boarding procedure, flight attendants were helpful"
Pros: "I like it allow an adult passenger with 2 free checked baggages,each can be 23kg max."
Cons: "The Online service is only set for Chinese who is living in China. You can not do the Seat Reservation without Chines mobile phone. You can not do any pre check-in because you are holding an Australia Passport."
Pros: "Cabin crew support for food."
Cons: "Availability of limited Bollywood movies. Expecting English subtitles for Hollywood movies"
Pros: "window control"
Cons: "I travel to see the places I go, not to watch movies instead. I found the auto-darkening of the window infuriating as I couldnt look out to watch the world I travel to see. Pretty much makes flying a waste of time if you are forced to look at movies you dont really want to watch because the real reason you bought the ticket is denied you without warning it will happen prior to investing in the ticket for the route. Button at seat worked for a while to sneak a peak at the real world but then the system seemed to take over and tell me to conform with the demand I not look."
Cons: "the meals were not really pleasant to eat"
Pros: "The service has improved a lot than previous years"
Cons: "Sometimes when the passengers asks for something they try to avoid saying it will be served after the meals or something. If someone asking for water, then they must try to serve as soon as possible without giving any excuse."
Pros: "Fligths were on time"
Cons: "The entertainment system didint work on my seat, the crew on the fligth from China to Bangkok was not friendly, most of they were not smiling."
Pros: ""Nothing". I really mean it Nothing."
Cons: "I was flying to Delhi & it was an emergency situation for me bcz i lost my Dad & i was flying to perform the cremation of my Dad. And thing this was informed to the China Southern officials so that they could arrange something for me. I requested them to put me into another flight for which i was ready to pay the whole amount but no one listen to my request & i had to wait so long. I was amazed to see that no one was keen to understand my problem at both he airports i.e. Auckland Airport & Ganzhaou Airport. Apart from this the behavior of your officials was so rude & arrogant it made me feel as if i was a slave or some kind of culprit. Due to the ignorance & laid back attitude on your part i couldn't reach my destination on my time. Seriously it took me "24 hrs Extra" to reach my destination & as a result of which i couldn't perform the cremation. I was pissed off by the service; complete ignorance by the staff/officials of ur airlines. I wasn't expecting this kind of treatment from a reputed company like you. I request you guys to look into this matter seriously and try to take some corrective measures so that this thing won't happen in future with someone else."
Cons: "Ground staff did not want to help me and refused to put me on this flight because they reffered to no transit visa, although I was legally allowed to get on the flight as I have just found out, but it is gone already. As a result all my consecutive flight were cancelled as no show. I tried to reach the airline help line, however due to Chinese New Year they don't work, so there was no way to solve this problem I am VERY dissapointed. Will take this case to the court if my money not refunded"
Pros: "One of crew lady was very rude. Lunch was bed , but movies were great!"
Cons: "Was comfortable flight, didn't late for first time. But disappointed with crew."
Pros: "Service and aircraft fleet."
Cons: "Most flights delayed for no good reason. Miss connections on both legs of our round trip to India"
Pros: "Meals and professional cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats and movies are due for an update."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Two flights now that I had a touchscreen that didn't work. Flight was fine but not exceptional. The main frustrations were from inconsiderate passengers - no doubt the ones who take advantage of lower airfares."
Pros: "Wonderful staff. We had a problem with our entertainment system and so they upgraded us to first class. Felt really valued."
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "Me and many customers on CZ 371 lost our baggages during the transit in Guangzhou. Still no update on lost and found yet."
Cons: "Staff was so rude and tv is not working properly"
Pros: "Good flight overall!"
Cons: "My checked in luggage did not arrive at my final destination airport!"
Pros: "The flight and crew itself was fine, the problem was with China Southern once you got off the plane."
Cons: "This is a big airport for transit passengers. Even if you had a boarding pass for your connecting flight, you needed to get in line to get another one. That took an hour and a half. If you needed a transit visa because of a long layover (China Southern offers accommodation) you needed to go through a second procedure which was arbitrary and chaotic and took hours. I got my transit visa in 2 1/ 2 hours (4 hours after getting off plane). In another hour I was at the very nice hotel provided. China Southern staff had assured me I didn't need to get to the airport particularly early, but the hotel staff required I leave 3 1/2 hours before my flight. With a 15 hour layover I was able to get 3 hours sleep. I saw people who had been in the transit visa area for up to 7 hours. Nothing else about these flights mattered at that point."
Pros: "Food was delicious and leg room was decent. Good toiletries."
Cons: "Chairs could feel every kick, nudge and tapping on touchscreen. Not many snacks offered."
Pros: "Crew are always good on CS. Ontime pretty much too which is a blessing."
Cons: "Still the quality or food and beverage selection is below the standard of other airlines. Perhaps a small spend increase by the airline on the quality will offer big gains. Entertainment has actually gone backwards. I have been flying this airline for years and it was good ! Not now seats are a little uncomfortable with not much padding."
Pros: "Friendliness of Crew."
Cons: "Business class seats could do with an update. Entertainment - movie selection could with an update."
Cons: "seats didn't recline as much as they should have been able to in the space."
Pros: "Very happy with the Crew and cleanliness of the Aircraft. Had an overall pleasant experience."
Cons: "Seats were quite uncomfortable and the entertainment could have been a little better."
Pros: "Crew is amazing served tirelessly and never lost their smile"
Cons: "No announcement of flight in business lounge nearly missed our flight"
Pros: "On time and polite."
Cons: "Food was average. but as I paid a low a low fare I was overall very pleased. Entertainment was none existent."
Pros: "I could not fault my journey with your Airline at all. I was very pleased with your staff and your service throughout both of my Flights. I shall be very pleased to travel with your Company again and would recommend you to all my Friends and Family."
Cons: "There was nothing i did not like."
Pros: "The flight is cheerful. Although 8 hrs is a little bit long, but I enjoyed my time."
Cons: "Basically nothing except for a few unpleasant other travellers sitting beside me."
Cons: "Not allowed to use cell phone or any electronic equipment even in flight mode"
Pros: "Flight attendants very kind"
Cons: "Only pillows and blankets , no eye masks , no socks, The choice of films"
Cons: "Plane delayed due to weather conditions. This seemed unnecessary as when we did fly the weather was fine. Meant I missed a connection and was put up in a three star hotel for 24 hours. Also had delay and the previous flight. Unimpressed."
Pros: "Really great service."
Cons: "Old plane."
Pros: "Help And pleasant staff"
Cons: "Poor quality entertainment screen"
Pros: "Great service for the price. Not a budget carrier but definitely a very competitive price."
Cons: "There are always delays with Southern China. Whether this is their problem or beyond their control I don't know know but it always seems to happen with this airline. Also the transfer in Guangzhou needs improving. They haven't quite mastered customer service outside the airplane. Very little warmth or friendly communication with the ground crew."
Pros: "Great seat on A330, very long. Staff super attentive in Biz, but then it was a quiet flight. IFE ok without being great, same for Food."
Cons: "Tv wasn't working"
Cons: "I wasn't allowed to board the flight because of some technical glitch in the system, even though I had the ticket. The staff was also not friendly at all."
Pros: "Flight, cabin and ground crew was all great and friedly"
