Cons: "Todo muy bien todos amables buena comida salio a tiempo"

Pros: "The flight was delayed (both ways) and after not having flown Thai Airways for many years, I would have thought the meaning of "TG = Tomorrow Go" has been improved to "Today Go" The boarding process literally remains back in the "stone age" compared to the total modern aviation advancements!!"
Cons: "The boarding process could and must be improved!! What's the point of having modern technology like self-automated boarding machines installed at the airport and not using them? People should be boarded by zoning instead of letting people acted like this is the last flight out of Saigon!!"

Cons: "Took bus from gate to a different gate. Had to walk up three sets of stairs to walk on to a jet bridge that was connected to the main airport. In flight snack would have been better not consumed. No illness, just didn't sit too well."

Cons: "I was assured of Bulk head ffom BKk to ZRH . Howrver in Manila they told to ask for Thai Reptentative. The head of Boarding crew told before the flight they would ask for a volunteer to exchange seat. They never did A German speaking Thai Disablef persons are not in Bulkhead. I am partially deaf.all the bulk head sits were given to Thai. The food were unpalatable.The worst I had.No tooth brushes no snacks in between. I will never fly this horrible airlines."

Pros: "Just like on previous domestic flight experience, I love how Thai Airways is able to promote and provide for customer comfort and service on such short flights - something that US airlines are so incapable of providing. Not only was the A350 comfortable and spacious, the fact that they also served a meal on such a short flight is so much appreciated."

Pros: "The movie"

Pros: "Friendly staff."

Cons: "Air Canada cancelled the original flight and rescheduled it for one day later. This was an obvious problem since it affected other travel plans. Air Canada customer service was very poor. First agent was unhelpful, second agent better. Overall it was a pain to finally get another flight for the original day."

Pros: "seats are comfortable, service is mediocre"
Cons: "Boarding in Brussels is always a hassle. The plane is never ready for boarding and one has to wait long time to access the plane. They start boarding but do not open the doors of the plane so everybody has to wait long in the tunnel to access the plane. It would be better not to start boarding."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Lack of legroom"

Pros: "The service the food the comfort and the way.thai airways make you feel specisl......unlike quantas who make you.feel uncomfortable....they did not used to but since that little fat irishman joyce took over and put profit abouve people .....royal thai airways are among the best in the world.........."

When I checked in to return to Bangkok, they had me flagged in the system for a lost item. Not only did they have my tablet but everyone from the airline staff to airport security knew about the incident and was happy to get my tablet back to me."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "My sister died and I wanted to change the date of my ticket and Thai would not cooperate at all, on the other hand Delta changes all my tickets so I could return to the states with no additional fees. Thai said economy call was full on my requested change date but they had Business Class tickets available, and I ask if I could apply the cost of my economy ticket amount to the Business Class ticket and they said no, that I could only purchase a new Business Class ticket. Real accommodating when you have an emergency."

Pros: "Crew was nice."

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 usual complaint thatevery airline's economy seats are just too small."

Pros: "Cheap flight."
Cons: "Different"

Pros: "The flight from Los Angeles to Guangzhou was good and food was fine."

Cons: "We had no option available for food. They only had fish. The crew has difficulty communicating in English which makes even a small request stressful."

Cons: "nothing"

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: "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: "Didn't know what to expect. Terminals beautiful and new in Xi'an and Chengdu. Check-in super easy. Flight was great, attendants very professional. This is what we should aim for in the US. Metro from Chengdu airport to downtown was a dream."

Pros: "Flight was fine, but was delayed 1.5 hours with no explanation"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours with no explanation"

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: "Na"
Cons: "Not able to use ur phone in airplane mode!!"

Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortable for such a long flight. The layover in Wuhan was a nightmare."

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: "trip to destination was OK"
Cons: "trip from destination was disaster plane was delayed and our luggages were not with us. We arrived Friday. Was told luggages will arrive & ship by Saturday. Called again this morning(saturday) now it will be shipped Sunday. What a night mare!!!!!"

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: "my aisle seat was reasonably comfortable. we departed and left on time the stewardesses were polite and refilled my water glass 2 times"
Cons: "The food was awful. They gave us a box containing two rolls, ,some peanuts, a container of sweetened yogurt and a sweet gooey gelatinous item that was impossible to describe."

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: "arrive chengdu for two days,still didn't.get our bags,all our stuffs were in those bags,and now still didn't know when can we get our luggage"

Pros: "Punctual departure, early arrival. Cabin crew was very attentive. Plenty of drinks to keep hydrated. Lots of movie and entertainment choices."

Pros: "The food was edible and the crew was nice. There was an empty seat between me and the lady with baby by the aisle."
Cons: "My bag didn't make it on the plane apparently and I have to wait 2 days for it to come. I don't know what happend or why they didn't put it on the plane. I am very upset!!!"
