Cons: "i had a hard time with their english, but it is better than my Chinese"

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."

Pros: "They assigned me the last seat abutting the bathroom in the back of the plane. It was the smallest seat with zero leg room. The seat itself had zero cushion. And because the back of the seat is against the wall of the bathroom it could not be leaned back either. The entertainment screen is so close to my face I could not look at it directly. I was probably the only Black guy in there. I wonder how they found me that seat. It was a Nonstop flight, I will fly China Southern every chance I get because I just want to get from point A to point B. But, I'll be asking more questions about my seat assignment before accepting it."

Pros: "Business class seats were as good as any first rate airline. Cabin crew was excellent"

Pros: "The cabin crew was nice."
Cons: "The check in process felt more like an interrogation. Unable to do upgrades at the counter."

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."

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."

Cons: "No entertainment, not even an English language newspaper. Delayed boarding and departure, as usual."

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."

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: "Everyone is very helpful in terms of where you go. They are just so happy to help you."
Cons: "The leg room really need to be increased. Its a 12 hour flight and i am 6feet person and i cant stress my legs. That sucks. But everything else are good."

Pros: "Great staff, food, comfort. Very clean toilets."

Cons: "seats didn't recline as much as they should have been able to in the space."

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "The plane is accessed by bus from the gate, and pretty far away. The stairs to the plane are not handicap accessible."

Pros: "That I got on the flight. That it was cheap."
Cons: "That every single southern china air flight was delayed, which nearly caused me to miss my other flights on the way back. When we were on the plane they didn't even tell us the flight was going to be delayed, we just sat on the plane for an hour twiddling our thumbs. No reasons given, will not flight southern china again"

Pros: "Built-in entertainment and A380 were great."
Cons: "Delay and food."

Pros: "The onboard staff was polite and helpful, but inexperienced at dealing with unruly passengers. On flight departure (rarity in the PRC)"
Cons: "The food was something you can get on the average street corner in Shanghai for about 1.00 USD. I understand costs are important, but a steamed piece of bread and a foil packet of pickled vegetables is a bit of a stretch. The gate agents were less than helpful. I usually get an upgrade with my Delta status on partner airlines. Nope, not on this flight. I requested it and they said it is not possible on China Southern. I showed them my boarding pass from less than 48 hrs before on the same airline... they looked bewildered. Boarding was the usual "every man for himself". Zones? Classes? Awards members? Not in Shenzhen..."

Pros: "Help And pleasant staff"
Cons: "Poor quality entertainment screen"

Cons: "No wifi. All food options contained meat or seafood. I wasn't sure if there were any snacks."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "no power in economy"

Pros: "The only positive thing was that the flight was on time."
Cons: "Cabin crew was largely absent. The seats were small and there was no legroom. The food was mediocre, but edible. Alcoholic drinks were limited to a red wine, a white wine, and beer, none of which were good.The bathrooms were quite dirty, though that is more a reflection of the passengers than of the crew."

Pros: "Good service, very pleasant cabin crew and a very smooth 787 flight. Good food."
Cons: "For a modern plane the seats are very hard on an eleven hour flight Having flown China Southern before on this route I brought along a memory foam seat squab this time! Very impressive is the transit hotel accommodation provided free for transits over eight hours."

Pros: "Puntuality"

Pros: "Plane"
Cons: "Crew was not organised"

Pros: "Early arrival, entertainment was good."
Cons: "cramped seating. long lines for restroom"

Pros: "The flight to Amsterdam to China"
Cons: "They didn't attend much"

Pros: "One leg of the flight was a dreamliner."
Cons: "Food was the worst I have had in memory. Crew are also the worst I have experienced in memory."

Cons: "Flight delayed 90 minutes. Poor communications in boarding area. No bi-lingual staff. Food consisted of a cup of yogurt, banana, and stale bread. Awful. Cabin crew was rude. Spouse's entertainment system did not work correctly."

Cons: "Very bad food."

Pros: "Crew, food"

Pros: "Punctual departure and arrival. Cabin crew was very attentive. Plenty of movie and entertainment choices."
Cons: "Limited food options - only pork in my section. No soap in bathroom. Limited leg room."

Pros: "Punctual departure, early arrival. Cabin crew was very attentive. Plenty of drinks to keep hydrated. Lots of movie and entertainment choices."
Cons: "Seat cushioning was worn out...not so comfortable for a long flight. Limited leg room. Unless you were seated at the beginning rows of the food service, there was only one food choice left. Also ran out of snacks for the back rows."

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "The ground staff were also very helpful."

Pros: "I dont understand how an airline can take people on a flight for so long amd not have anything cold to drink. there was no ice for drinks and the juice was left out. all they had to drink was warm jucie and warm flat soda. Ive never been on a flight that ling that didnt offer cocktails either which I thought was total bullshit. the food was horrible but thats common. the flightwasnt the only thing wrong either. the china southern airport was 45*F inside the terminal for my 7hr layover and I froze the entire time. I will never fly with china southern again"

Pros: "Very good for this flight. i will be use this service by next time. and thank you very much for KAYAK ."

Pros: "Pork meals are delicious especially century egg with pork congee"
Cons: "Dirty toilets, despite attendants have regular cleaning schedules. My headphone and media monitor was not working."

Pros: "Good bang for the buck which makes all the average food, seat, legroom etc bearable."
Cons: "Delayed an hour, never listed/updated on the boards at airport."

Pros: "Extremely impressed with the service and comfort of the flight"

Pros: "Staff were so helpful - had a tight layover time in CAN and the staff went above and beyond by ushering me to the right locations."
Cons: "Food could have been fresher but overall still acceptable."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I had missed my flight. I went to get another as it was urgent I arrived the next day. After hours, I was assured I would have a flight the next day at no charge. The next day I was screamed at in line and told to leave. The only other flight available was three thousand dollars one way. I missed my appointment and purpose of the trip. I had to wait another day and pay over 850 dollars one way."

Pros: "The on-board staff was friendly. Wish I had more good things to say."
Cons: "Delays seem to be a hallmark of this airline. I could go on for pages about the lack of communication from this airline and how they made me have to stay in a hotel because of a delay, but the less said the better. What exactly are the qualifications for being a member of the SkyTeam? On-board entertainment? I just want TIMELY, safe and comfortable flights. Frills are nice, but not necessary, and do NOT make up for not consistently delivering these priorities. Not allowing the use of cell phones in airplane mode on-board was mildly inconvenient also. Having more than one bathroom on the planes would also be appreciated."

Pros: "On a ime"
Cons: "Poor food and no entertainment"

Pros: "Booked seats with my reservations months in advance. Come check-in time, they were invalid. Got seats in front of bathroom."

Pros: "Flight crew attitude was professional and friendly. Food choices were great. Great landing. My thanks to the pilot!"
Cons: "Seat was small, narrow, and not much leg room. I had difficulty with the seatbelt being too small. Upon exiting the plane into the airport, the airport was very hot and uncomfortable, which is not China Southern airline's fault."
