Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Missed flight due to incompetence in rechecking bag. Check in kiosks do not work. Whole operation totally understaffed. I did not like anything"
Cons: "i had a hard time with their english, but it is better than my Chinese"
Cons: "Plane Seating space is so crowded & leg room space too small"
Pros: "I've been flying China Southern for my last 4 Transpac flights. The equipment is competitive with all the carriers are always clean. Their 777-300ER from SFO to CAN is very comfortable in economy. The seats and headrest a very supportive and yet have a soft touch. 14 hours and 35 minutes and I wasn't numb. They provide complimentary beer and wine throughout the flight. Their price often cannot be beaten."
Cons: "CZ658 SFOCAN January 20, 2019, is the first time my seat back infotainment system didn't work. I didn't have to say anything. An inflight staff brought me a tablet preloaded with a slimmed down assortment of movies, music etc. I usually binge watch and this time it worked out"
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 customs declaration area especially with people coming to do business in China needs more officers to enhance efficiency"
Cons: "Flight was late. Disembarked at the China Southern repair building. Miles from the terminal"
Pros: "The service was outstanding. They had a person waiting as we got off the first flight to guide us to the second flight. The stewardesses were attentive and outstanding. The seats were comfortable, the food and movie optons were top notch. I can't recommend business class highly enough."
Cons: "I loved everything about this flight!"
Pros: "Everything very average"
Cons: "If you ever need customer service, they are the worst in the business"
Pros: "Fligths were on time"

Pros: "Stewardess and stewards work"
Cons: "My seat"
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: "Did not get online seat selection and online check in. Not satify at all with customer service over the phone."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival. Good service and crew members are nice."
Cons: "Baggage didn't come to HCMC on time. CS changed the schedule so the time was too tight to transit which caused lost baggages and unhappy experience."
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: "Basically I didn’t like much. Food was terrible, individual tv entertainment wasn’t available on my return flight A330."
Cons: "Food , tv, many hours of waiting for boarding"
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)"
Pros: "Great staff, food, comfort. Very clean toilets."
Cons: "The food is great in business class, great service, really enjoyed it"
Pros: "Usually in Economy plus seating I expect extra legroom but this was definitely closer to a business-class experience with a foot rest that popped out and lots of extra space. A really nice flight!"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Food wasn’t great but not bad"
Pros: "The aircraft was new and very well kept. The crew was very attentive and highly professional. Will fly them again!"
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic on all flights. The Premium passenger was supposed to be separated and was not."
Pros: "The arrival was on time. The aeroplane landed very smooth. Luggages arrive the terminal in very short time. Overall this was a comfortable trip."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on the plane. May be this was a short distance trip. On arrival, we needed to take connection bus from the aeroplane to the terminal and wasted us some time."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Food was mediocre."
Cons: "seats didn't recline as much as they should have been able to in the space."
Pros: "Out of Guangzhou (CAN), the food was dreadful. They cannot make decent coffee, either! They did have UHT milk instead of powdered creamer for the coffee, so that was better than usual! Once the flight attendant rebooted my non-functioning entertainment system, it had quite a bit to offer."
Cons: "Seated in the last row, so the seat would not recline so much as an inch. On such a long flight (something over 14 hours), a hard, cramped seat is difficult to endure. Aircraft was filled to bursting, not a single vacant seat. With so many people, boarding could be better organized. Not the most experienced or competent of pilots, either. Could not handle crosswinds landing at JFK, so it was a rather hairy landing, weaving down the runway."
Pros: "That I was able to watch movies and the flight wasn't full."
Cons: "Had to be transported to board the plane. It was delayed for an hour."
Cons: "I fact that though I have Elite Plus status in the SkyTeam alliance I didn't have an upgrade and people who have no status were given upgrades!"
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: "The food is good"
Cons: "The air-con is too cold and the staff said there were no blankets left"
Cons: "Not a lot of leg space and it was especially tight when the person in front reclined and there was not space for my legs. My flight got delayed and my luggage went missing when I was flying back home. The food was okay, but many times they ran out of other food options. The phone numbers listed on the website were not available to call and I could not get in touch with them when I needed questions answered."
Pros: "They got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "First flight was delayed three hours without explanation or information (just had to sit there and wait for them to call us the whole time). Second flight was delayed about an hour. Crew on second flight was not friendly."
Cons: "3 hour delay"
Pros: "Help And pleasant staff"
Cons: "Poor quality entertainment screen"
Pros: "Long flight, but one of the best we've flown. The flight times make a huge difference and China Southern really impressed with their itinerary and price. The A380 may be my favorite plane now too. Kids loved the movie selection, they ate both meals and they slept in between. Can't ask for more. One child got sick during flight but the stewardesses were very helpful. Will keep them in our top options going forward."
Cons: "I was prepared to be upset at China Southern because they try to get you to pay for picking your seat ahead of time. We took our chances and they got our family of 7 seats together on all 4 legs of our flights! It's a risk, but they seem to be very accommodating to families. Don't waste the money paying extra"
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: "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: "The WORSE check in service EVER./ Rude, arrogant and ignorant."
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."
Pros: "I was sitting like a zombie for the flight because the entertainment system on my seat was not turning on. The crew said there is no alternative seat, and could not fix it either. The international terminal at Wuhan was interesting experience as well. There were no clear directions to walk from the domestic terminal to international. The airport crew was prompting where to go"
Pros: "I was traveling business, the crew were so helpful, it's 1 to 1 individual service. The seats were so comfortable and lots of room. Food is fantastic, lounge is very good, good food and drinks. Their price is quite reasonable, makes this trip worth every cent of it! Love it and I will travel with them in future."
Pros: "The entertainment was good. The movies were new and fun."
Cons: "When I checked into our flight in Thailand, I requested three connecting seats because I want to take care of my 74 year old father and 66 year old mother. The guy at the check in counter told me that he had arranged three connecting seats for us. However, when we were boarding, we realized that my 74 years old dad was connected to my mom and I! Lucky there were some empty seats and the flight attendants kindly agreed to let us sit together after my dad spoke to one of them."
Pros: "On time and great service!"
Cons: "meal was just OK"
