Taking atleast 15 minutes to be cleared just 1. 1h 45 minutes to finish everything. Wuhan haha next time free flight i will not bother. Ohh 1 more thing. They use the Communist system in the international airport"
Pros: "The movie selection was good and the seats were comfortable. The attendants were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "The food was ok, but not bad for airlines food. The drink portions were very small...esp. the water. I was very thirsty throughout the flight. Other than that, it was a good flight."
Pros: "The 13 plus hour flight to Guangzhou was extremely pleasant. The food was extremely nice and flavorful (had the lamb) and Service was very professional yet friendly. Drinks were refilled without asking and array of snacks available were of nice assortment . In flight entertainment was more than expected and choice of movies Hollywood and other International options were great. Overall was an excellent experience. Would fly them again"
Pros: "Fell asleep before take off and woke up two hours before arrival. That's a great flight. Arrived half hour early. Staff was beyond pleasant. Great flight"
Cons: "No USB ports in economy class on plane."
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!"
Pros: "I had the chance to chose my meal in advance, the food was great"
Pros: "Fligths were on time"

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: "The flight attendants were amazing! I love how everything was included in your ticket!!! American Airline will make their grandmother pay for toilet paper!!!! I really love how the carts in the airport to push your luggage around were free. in America there's $6. I had a 12-hour layover in China, I just want to say thank you so much for putting me in a hotel and giving me transportation! that would never happen in America thank you so much! Thank you so much! I hope it stays the same way forever !"
Cons: "EVERYTHING! Would love to use you guys again!"
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)"
Pros: "Great staff, food, comfort. Very clean toilets."
Pros: "cheap"
Cons: "no tv/ personal entertainment. feels like a budget flight. delayed flight"
Pros: "The serve food .great stewards.."
Cons: "Late arrival missed connection.."
Cons: "seats didn't recline as much as they should have been able to in the space."
Pros: "Great space. Easy to get on and off plane."
Cons: "Movie/media monitor did not work. Selection of movies and audio were very limited Takeoff very shaky cabin- scary"
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: "No problems is a good thing."
Cons: "Seats."
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"
Cons: "Cell phones prohibited for the ENTIRETY of this 12-hour flight, not just takeoff and landing"
Pros: "Nice service! Provides customers many varieties thing."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled unbeknownst to me until I arrived to check in. Both the airline and the booking agency were denying who's fault it was. After 3 hours, I was finally out on another flight with Air China that I almost missed because they took so long to help me!"
Cons: "2 hours delayed, I couldn't say anything good about this flight and the terrible experience waiting for my flights in china"
Cons: "Horrible food, the most disgusting food I have ever tried on an airplane. Delayed both ways, 5 hours and 7 hours."
Cons: "Crew was welcoming, but the seats are terribly cramped. The delay also pushed an already long flight into torture."
Pros: "Help And pleasant staff"
Cons: "Poor quality entertainment screen"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Super helpful to have a hotel for layover - thank you!"
Cons: "Seats were hard with little room."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Crew was very kind, the vegetarian option was nice to have. The entertainment options were pretty good as well for a small puddle jump. Plenty of room for checked baggage."
Cons: "The seats were a bit of a squeeze, and the food itself was pretty terrible. The entertainment screen did not work on my seat (was pretty clearly being operated by someone else). Contacting them before the flight was extremely difficult."
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: "Vegetarian option available despite not being able to select this when booking the flight"
Cons: "Flight crew unavailable after serving meal to offer refreshments regularly during flight and seats very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Very professional and courteous operation. Departure/arrival was right on time. Connection flt transfer in Guangzhou went very smooth and is simple to pass through concourses to connecting flt. Other airlines and airports can be a major hassle, but China Southern Airlines has their business model operation down to a science. And the best part, their prices are very offirdable."
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."
Pros: "The flight got cancelled and Kayak is asking for experience. The next flight I am getting is after 30 hours."
Cons: "The flight got cancelled and Kayak is asking for experience. The next flight I am getting is after 30 hours."
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: "The ground staff were also very helpful."
Pros: "Agent failed to forward my meal request but the crew somehow scraped together what I needed."
Cons: "Check in agent attitude."
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: "A380 Business class has new seat configuration that offsets all seats and each is its own "pod". The equipment is new and very comfortable. People on both segments were very nice"
Cons: "787 Dreamliner is a fairly new plane outfitted with Business class seats from 15 years ago. They are side by side with no dividers and very uncomfortable. ALSO, they did not even board from jetbridge. We had to take shuttle bus past the entire airport and past the maintenance hangers to our plane. Flight from CAN to SFO makes "stop" in Wuhan, China for 2.5 hour layover. 1) Disembark onto shuttle bus. 2) Travel across airport. 3) Go through immigration or customs AGAIN and then security check of luggage 4) Walk 1/2 mile to business lounge 5) spend less than 10 minutes in lounge 6) get back on bus to be taken back to airplane. 7) wait another 1/2 hour b4 departure. Weird place to stop and even crazier procedures."
Pros: "1. The food was actually very tasty 2. The crew was nice for the most part 3. The price I paid was decent $496 for one way from Manila to SF"
Cons: "1. The seats were too close together and not comfortable. The arm rests were too short and my elbows kept pushing the overhead light on. 2. The audio jacks was broken so I had to jiggle the headphones in the socket to get the audio and even then it wasn't good so I just gave up on watching a movie 3. They don't allow use of cell phones even in airplane mode"
Pros: "Was prepared for the worst and was actually a good airline."
Cons: "Long process to board including taking a bus from one terminal to another terminal. Food was just average"
Pros: "Nothing. It was a bad experience."
Cons: "They could have served food. They could have checked us in through to our final destination."
Pros: "the entertainment was fine"
Cons: "I hadn't ordered a vegetarian meal and therefore couldn't eat anything on the flight - everything was red meat based, the seats are tiny which is rough on a long haul, the airline asks people to take off headphones 30min-1hr before arrival, crew was incredibly rude, aircraft was old"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "crews were amazing"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Aircraft was clean and fairly comfortable with adequate legroom for avg height people, though tray and screen placement can be improved on."
Cons: "PVG airport gates could deal with more seating, at least double... and better handling of delays."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "This was my 2nd international flight with China Eastern Air. Both were delayed out of SFO because they didn't have planes. I missed my connection (even though I had a 4 hour layover)"
Pros: "On time boarding. No delays. Crew did their best to help everyone."
Cons: "Cattle boarding at PVG was less than ideal. Long wait time between flights. Equipment not as comfortable, but thankfully is was a relatively short flight. No choice of entertainment options and cabin lights were on for the duration of the second flight. Cold meal was okay on second flight from PVG to BKK, could have been better."
Cons: "I’m very disappointed with China eastern airlines. Despite making the request during reservation, my mom who has bad knees did not get wheelchair. Staff was very rude and did not provide wheelchair and she had to walk a lot with pain."
Cons: "I’m a short person and can usually tolerate smaller spaces but the space this time is way too small. Overhead bins were full very quickly."
Cons: "When I went during the flight to get something to drink the staff member seemed to no like it that I came to get something to drink and told me to go back to my seat. On all my 4 flights with eastern China the airplane was not cleaned there were coffee stains and other stains on the table trays for my seats and other spills that had dried and never cleaned up"
Pros: "Everything was great for the Price Free Wifi Vegan Food Option"
Cons: "Blankets from Shanghai to Delhi could be little more better Apart from it all good"
Pros: "Service..on time .."

Cons: "Missed flight due to delay and had to deal with rude staff for the rebooking. Around 15 of us got no real information and we’re just hoping for the best"

Pros: "The staff were helpful and the flight was flawless."
Cons: "Long lineup and online checking was pointless."
Pros: "excellent price, lots of wine, champagne and beer"
Cons: "long slow line to show passport and boarding pass at entry. It was faster to go through immigration and out again than wait in line. Flight had 3 hour delay as they found a smaller plane. Waiting area had the doors open to the sub zero temperatures outside. No announcement made as to when we were to depart. We finally boarded buses and were forced out into the cold at 3 am to stand in line on the open stair to the plane. I was in business class with seat 12B. There were only 4 seats of business class. No Entertainment. a small snack was served"
Pros: "I liked how nice the staff were."
Cons: "The peanuts they gave us expired on dec 08. My flight was dec 21......"
Cons: "Still don’t understand why this is the only airline in all my travels that would not let you use your phone in airplane mode. But iPads are ok? Strange music and a lot of turbulence over the 9 hour ocean flight. Pretty scary."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Arrived 2 hours before flight time (1315) but massive queue at bag drop and security. When got to security it was already 1230 and gate is closing in 25 minutes, I talked to people for a quicker access but to no avail. When I got through security, it was 1305 and the gate was closed. About another 12 passengers on the same flight could not board the same flight. When I talked to someone At the end another is arranged at 1625, only delayed until 1900 for boarding, and took off at 2000."

Pros: "long delay."
Cons: "long delay and bad customer service."
Pros: "For the most part the flight was everything I hope it would be. No major complaints."
Cons: "Might flight was delayed by an hour, which was not too bad. We were kept waiting at the bottom of the stair, while standing on the runway at the plane. Were told flight was delayed do to wind, but we could see other flights taking off. Thought we were going to be taken back to the waiting area, but fortunately someone finally got the bright idea to let us just wait on board the plane. We all boarded and placed our carry on items overhead. Sat on the plane for about 40 minutes. Then an additional maybe 20 or 30 passengers boarded, who had not at the gate at boarding time. This was probably the REAL reason the flight was delayed."
Pros: "Very efficient staff. Great operating system"
Pros: "This airline has the worst customer service I even have experienced. They never able to offer the service which satisefies their customers. The problem is that they are not willing to do so."

Pros: "nothig"
Cons: "Chinese have no clue about customer service!!!!"
Pros: "Great value. Fully flat bed in business class for Dubai - Melbourne return with stops in Kunming and Shanghai very comfortable with a 2/2/2 arrangement. Long transits in Shanghai allowed a quick visit into this dynamic city. Airports at Kunming and Shanghai are modern, efficient. Short term visa on arrival for transit passengers works well. I will definitely fly them again."
Cons: "Staff were great but not quietest Cathay/ Emirates level but they really tried hard. I am sure they will get there soon. Wine list was limited and the white wine was warm - though to be fair this is sometimes the case on Qatar Airways too."
Pros: "The crew was great and there was a good variety of movies to watch."
Cons: "3 of the 4 flights were delayed and the flight from Shanghai home to Toronto was delayed 2.5 hours after we had already boarded so we were stuck on the tarmac which wasn't great."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The flight was inexpensive."
Cons: "We had a 12 hour delayed flight and was unable to find any staff who could help us. They continued to say we had to wait to get to Shanghai and the staff would help us there. We arrived to Shanghai to find a frantic staff unwilling to give us much information aside from our new flight number, the following day, and that they would put us in a hotel. Hotel was a loose term. They herded all the people with missed connections onto a charter bus, drove us 20 minutes away from the airport to one of the most foul and grotesque sleeping arrangements I've ever seen. There were stains and mold everywhere. And the "bed" was a boxspring. The "breakfast buffet" in the morning had flies swarming around all of the food. It was a miserable experience."
