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: "Loved the good space in seating. Really appreciated it. Mostly crew were friendly and eager to be helpful. The sudoku was the only entertainment I really wanted to use on this flight but it just refused to load. Didn't really matter as I had a good book with me and really enjoyed that."
Cons: "One stewardess seemed reluctant to help me with cabin baggage. No smiles. Didn't much like the 3 hour delay, especially as my waiting time was already 5 hours, however, I'm sure your were doing all you could to get us safely to our destination as quickly as possible. These things happen."
Pros: "A lot of movies and good options to enjoy time while flying"
Pros: "excellent flight service and free transfer hotel is great"
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: "eat drink all you want. back of plane but not any worse than other seats. good movie selection. considering the airlines take this is a good deal and flight. and all seats have an outlet!"
Cons: "they changed the flight time early on."
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: "Hidden stop in Wuhan and a problem with the plane had the crew scrambled and confused. They didnt know what to do next, they followed orders from someone over the walkies. First they wanted to move all pax to hotels with buses, but plane got fixed while preparing the buses. Organization of re-entry and reboarding was very frantic and confused. During all this time, crew never gave any announcements in english language, so foreign tourists had to get information from other passengers who could translate..."
Pros: "CS gave me seats with screens. My kid enjoyed it much."
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."
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: "Excellent airlines and staff Thank you for you !"
Cons: "Nothing to do with your airlines but the flight from Kathmandu was 90 minutes delayed which caused the security check to the connecting flight in China to be a nightmare of crowds trying to clear security the initiial 90 minute also probably was the reason my baggage didn't make it to LA and will be delivered to my address 2 days late"
Pros: "Everything went well except for my comments to the right."
Cons: "Check in in person . The lady that issues boarding passes. She never smiled and I was scared to ask her anything. She sure did not volunteer any info concerning our flight from Chengdu to LAX via CAN. Never asked if we preferred isle or window seats. I remember her and will avoid her next time."
Cons: "seats didn't recline as much as they should have been able to in the space."
Cons: "Besides the flight from Guangzhou was delayed for 2 hours due to mechanical issues, my luggage wasn't to be found when I arrived Kathmandu. This is the second time that it happened. The first time was in 2014 and it took them 4-5 days before they can locate it."
Pros: "Seat, entertainment, on time, cabin crew."
Cons: "No lounge, Food was just okay"
Pros: "Boeing 787 was alright, flat bed and basic needs"
Cons: "No one really speaks english, delayed flight, LEFT my luggage in guangzhou, mediocre food, and flight from china to jakarta is not a flat bed, super turbulent flight from new york to china"
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: "On a long flight I was able to sleep very well. Food was good, staff was excellent."
Cons: "They served breakfast too early. I wanted to sleep some more."
Cons: "I lost money because I bought my ticket in USD and gogt charged $1000, then when I got refunded I only got $880 back. Garbage service."
Cons: "Terrible delay before departure, right before landing, and after landing but before gate. I had 3.5 hr layover in Wuhan but still missed my next flight. The hotel provided by the airline for overnight is terrible. I have to pay extra to get a room for my own (the standard offered requires two strangers stay in the same room)."
Pros: "Help And pleasant staff"
Cons: "Poor quality entertainment screen"
Pros: "The Cabin was clean, seats were new, usb charging port was a nice touch."
Cons: "The food was really poor."
Pros: "The plane was nice and the flight was smooth."
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: "The service was OK"
Cons: "Could not do the online checkin for the flight. The food quality was not good & the quality of the beer was pathetic"
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."
Cons: "Crew was not organised"
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."
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: "For the most part, the flight was good. Entertainment was nice, food was so-so, and the staff seemed friendly."
Cons: "There was a leak above my seat that dripped on my head while I was sleeping. The liquid was odorless and appeared to be dark brown, looking an awful lot like oil. When I informed the stewardess, she stuffed a wet rag in the dripping spot, but didn't offer any other solution. I still don't know what the liquid was."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2 hours My luggage did not arrive with me. Came 10hrs after"
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."
Cons: "Old airplane. Seats close together."
Pros: "Someone had booked the same seat as I did and since i was traveling alone they moved me up to first class on my long flight to China. Overall Excellent service!!"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the boarding process was efficient."
Cons: "The food was mediocre. There could have been a better variety of in-flight entertainment (fewer comic book movies)."
Pros: "Extremely impressed with the service and comfort of the flight"
Cons: "Flight to Fuzhou delayed hours, no information given. Flight from Fuzhou was cancelled. China Southern didn't book us on another flight, or notify us. I spent an hour and a half trying to get a substitute flight (which left 5 hours earlier, meaning our layover was 7 hours in the airport). They said they wouldn't charge me this time (?!). The customer service was terrible, but the fact that they cancelled a flight without notification and re-booking was preposterous."
