Pros: "Overall the flight met expectations for service, comfort and food."

Pros: "ANA is always efficient and polite."
Cons: "Just drinks no snacks on this flight"
Cons: "The food wasn’t very good and the quantity of the snack meager. Worse, the crew refused to give a second roll to our 12 year old even which means that either they only have one for each passenger (and every passenger had theirs) or the crew are parsimonious."
Pros: "Food and services"
Pros: "The cabin crew was always found to be welcoming and co-operative attitude. Rest Rooms (Toilets) were found to be clean whenever visited."
Pros: "Food was ok for economy and they bring more coffee when you ask. The flight wasn’t so full so the seat next to me was empty and also I could sit in the exit isle to work on my laptop"
Cons: "The seat pitch is such that you can’t use a laptop in a normal seat. This would have been a big issue if there wasn’t a seat in the exit row for me to borrow. Staff fine but nothing special."

Cons: "There were not a lot of selections on the TV."
Pros: "All the flight attendants were doing excellent customer service and there was good food."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."

Pros: "Excellent legroom. Very polite staff."
Cons: "Buses to plane. Delayed departure. Food not tasty. Limited entertainment options."

Pros: "Economy premium was very comfortable. Best service I’ve had on an airplane since Pan American days."
Cons: "I didn’t like the boarding process one long line. However, it moved quickly and unlike American airlines there was plenty of overhead space. They let you check 2 bags free. Of course, it is an international flight."
Cons: "We both - Wife and me - had to pay around 200 USD for TWO Extra Suitcases in spite of both being an ANA Flying Miles Members. Hence What is the uet of these ANA Miles Club (AMC) Membership? Remains an EYE-WASH................................."
Pros: "Very efficient, friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "Food was gross."
Pros: "Very efficient"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Cons: "The food was dreadful. It was like being back in the 1990s. Kids entertainment options were poor. The original toy story movie was it!"
Pros: "The service and attention of the ANA flight attendants seemed genuine."
Pros: "I got a great value for money ticket from KAYAK, TQ!! ANA is an excellent airline, better service, better leg rooms and cuter crew members than than SQ!!"
Cons: "In flight meal could be improved"
Cons: "The dinner was served too late, not right after take off. Also, the portions were way too small."
Pros: "Excellent service. Good food. Great entertainment selection."
Cons: "No free WiFi"
Pros: "The quality of your aircraft. Clean, modern, plenty of leg room. The check in agent in Manila, Arnel (or maybe Armel) was especially helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Pax are advised to show up at least 3 hours before flight. My wife and I showed up 3hrs 45 min before takeoff. There were perhaps 40 to 50 people already in line ahead of us. But no checkin counters were open. The first check-ins began 3 hours prior to take off. By that time the line was backed all the way out into the main corridor. It would be MUCH better for ANA and the customer to begin the checkin process 3.5 to 4hours prior instead of 3."
Pros: "Food and Sitting Space"
Cons: "Sitting space"
Pros: "Food was quite good"
Cons: "the plane was Hot! So hot we couldn't use the blankets. The staff in Tokyo did not want to let me and my twin 11 yr olds board early. We need extra time to be organised and in our seats for a very long flight. If not we block the aisle. And that is without consideration for the fact that my daughter has limited sight so needs my help and it takes time. I was disappointed that they didnt come through the cabin from time to time with snacks as most airlines do on long haul flights."
Pros: "Shortest duration"
Pros: "The configuration of 787-900 Busn. Class was very good. However need to age Chivas Regal to 18 years like KAL, not ordinary 12 years. Flight attendants were exceptionally efficient, professional, courteous, and outstanding ambassadors for ANA and Japan itself. In the US Marine Corps we would say "Ooo Rah". I may heed to check out your milage club and stop using various carriers for my trans Pacific flights. Thank you very much ANA."
Cons: "late again and hot in the cabin. sat on the runway for a while again"
Pros: "I like the nice and warm service from the crew"
Cons: "Food can be more variable but overall its oke"
Pros: "No..no redeeming features.."
Cons: "Coffee was the worst I've ever had. The 2+1 powdered mil and coffee stick. Truly awful. But i suppose there aren't many people on the flight who would order coffee..I would even pay extra for a coffee if they had a quality option. Food is comparable to a school canteen. I would probably pay 20rmb for this in Shanghai. Frozen butter for the half-frozen bread. They really couldn't do worse..."
Cons: "Boarding by bus .... on time but departure delayed 45 mins ... I guess typical for China ..."
Pros: "Smooth transfer at CAN"
Cons: "Vegetarian food needs to be better. Tasteless food served. No options for vegetarian."
Cons: "i had a hard time with their english, but it is better than my Chinese"
Pros: "The crew was good and spoke reasonable English."

Pros: "All are fine"
Cons: "Choice of food should be offered"
Pros: "Helpful staff both on ground and in the air"
Cons: "- The plane supposedly has free wifi :) :) :) but this is too good to be true. After a long and complicated procedure “all free wifi passes are gone, try again next time”. Someone said there are only 70 passes for the entire plane. - Similar experience with “free wifi” Guangzhou’s Bayun airport if you don’t have a Chinese simcard in your phone. - Navigating China Southern’s website for online check-in is a nightmare."
Cons: "3 hours delay I miss my professional meeting in Shanghai because of this big delay !!! I Sky Team Flying Blue Platinum for Life and this is the first time I got a bad seat and no window"
Pros: "I was expecting less and China Southern delivered a very good experience on their.international flight from Auckland to Guangzhou. I was able to meet up with my son who flew them from SFO and fly on to Cambodia together. Guangzhou airport is stellar, clean, spacious, and transit was comfortable. Will flutter again with confidence."
Cons: "The usual complaint thatevery airline's economy seats are just too small."
Cons: "Service is bad. Food if not good as well."
Pros: "The plane was clean and the boarding process was very smooth. The crew was professional. The selection of movies was outstanding."
Cons: "There was not as much legroom as I would have liked. We had Asian Veg meals which were a little bit too much the same each time."
Cons: "The boarding was shambles, the seats mediocre and not comfortable neither were the pillows or bedding looking clean. The staff tried but they ran out of items pretty quick. I paid for KLM and got something sub-par"
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: "China Southern has an excellent and attentive staff, very friendly and responsive. The boarding process is smooth with very little complications. There was full meal service for this 2 hour flight. This was a decent meal as far as I am concerned."
Cons: "Bangkok to Guangzhou, the Airbus 380 jet used for regional flights feels a little like a tightly packed sardine can, I guess thats to be expected for a Southeast Asian regional flight."
Pros: "I like the part that the check in personnel and flight attendants were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "That I cannot check in online and the seats are prearranged by the airline. I wont be using the agency that book my travels. CSair was hard to contact to confirm the flight."
Pros: "Boarding procedure, flight attendants were helpful"
Pros: "The cabin crew were so great!!!"
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: "Good service, friendly cabin crews and on-time flight. Great price."
Cons: "no USB for charger; limited drink selection; restroom not as clean or as often cleaned as some other airlines"
Cons: "The plane was too hot inside. It felt like the ac was not set properly. It was very uncomfortable. No entertainment system."
Pros: "Great smooth flight"
Pros: "Cabin crew support for food."
Cons: "Availability of limited Bollywood movies. Expecting English subtitles for Hollywood movies"
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "Left 45 min late. No biggie but late is late. No customs papers on plane."
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: "The efficiency and professionalism of the crew were appreciated.Business class seats were comfortable but lack of wi-if disappointing."
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."
Pros: "It’s simply a way to get from one airport to another. Everything is adequate minus the food."
Cons: "The food is really bad, and everything else is adequate for simple travel."
Pros: "We took China Southern from Sydney to Guangzhou few weeks ago , the crew was rude, very bad services, but when we come back from Guangzhou to Sydney yesterday, same airline, Crew was excellent. can't understand why so much different in two different days."
Cons: "We took China Southern from Sydney to Guangzhou few weeks ago , the crew was rude, very bad services, but when we come back from Guangzhou to Sydney yesterday, same airline, Crew was excellent. can't understand why so much different in two different days. the services need to be consistent ."
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: "Good selection of movies...."
Cons: "...if you could watch them. My screen didn't work. A nice attendant gave me an iPad to watch some on, but obviously it could only hold so many...and not the ones I preferred. There wasn't a vegetarian option so I was given just bread to eat twice on a 15 hour flight. To top it all off, the airline worker at check in forced my companion to pay $150 to gate check her guitar (which has always counted as carry on thru other airlines), and then at the gate she was told she couldn't check it and that she was to bring it on the plane as we originally intended. We noticed she was the only person given any trouble and the only black person.....all in all, a terrible experience."
Pros: "Cabin crew very courtious and professional."
Cons: "Sitting on the Business class seats is like sitting a lump of rocks."
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: "Liked the food and crew members."
Cons: "The most ucomfortable seats I have ever travelled. I had a 13 hour trip which made it even more worse. Small leg room and bad back and bottom support. Would avoid if possible"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, solid"
Cons: "Flight got rerouted to Chicago because of snow. Airline abandoned us for almost 10 hours. No one knew where to go, what to do. That part was horrible after a 15 hour flight."
Pros: "Seats were ok. Downloaded media for each seat was diverse and entertaining. Food was alright."
Cons: "Crew was pretty curt and not polite. They also 'didn't have time' to load my bag onto the plane, along with ~15 other people. I had to wait two days for it to arrive. 'No time' to load bags is kind of an odd and slightly unacceptable reason to not load baggage onto a plane. Airlines close check-in for flights 30 mins before departure time to ensure that all bags make it onto the plane. I was 3 hours early. Don't know why they 'didn't have time'. They also broke my friend's bag."
Cons: "Staff was so rude and tv is not working properly"
Pros: "Ontime departure"
Cons: "Nothing special. Entertainment system was intermittently working requiring reveal reboot. Food just average or perhaps slightly below. Customer service was fair but not to the caliber of other Asian airlines (e.g., Cathay Pacific)"
Cons: "Please help me find my luggage!"
Pros: "Great staff, food, comfort. Very clean toilets."
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."
Cons: "The food is great in business class, great service, really enjoyed it"
Pros: "good service for price charged"
Cons: "the food"
Cons: "They left one of my bags in China. I need it"
