Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."

Cons: "long flight"
Pros: "Nothing was wow! Liked politeness of one of the airhost. She was good with good english"
Cons: "Plane wasnt clean enough specially toilet."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."
Cons: "Service is great and the plane flew so smooth"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Seat"
Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."
Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."
Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"

Pros: "ok"
Cons: "Although website says you can pay online, there is no info to pay for extra baggage online. This is very misleading."
Pros: "The leg room was good especially for tall passengers. Food was fantastic. The interior lighting of the plane was amazing. The airport is probably one of the best i have seen that a 9-hour layover didn't feel as bad. Very clean and so many things to do."
Cons: "Airconditioning needs a bit of improvement. I had to remove my jacket. It had a point that i was sweating in the middle of the flight. Probably the warmest airplane ride i had."
Cons: "Very bad flight and airlines. I will never try it again. The staff dealing was very bad."
Cons: "Very cramped space on a 14 hr flight. Very slow food & drink service. Toilets were dirty No opportunity to choose seats despite checking in online the day before - we were allocated 2 adjacent seats but there were none others shown as available on the entire aircraft."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I am a very tall man and was unable to have an exit row seat. It was not explained why just that they were not available. When I booked the flights I was told to get to the airport as early as possible as exit row seats cannot be booked."

Cons: "Poor gluten free options"
Pros: "The crew were superlative."
Cons: "The seat folded to a flat bed, yet the boulder area remained raised, making the comfort level for a tall person, somewhat rest cited. My neck really quite sore as a result. Was an old plane tho, and the controls for movies , seats etc were archaic"
Cons: "Too long of a wait for "parking" after landing"
Cons: "Everything about the flight was great with the exception that the WiFi was pretty terrible and didnt work the final few hours of the flight. I raise the issue because customers shouldn’t pay $15 for it if it doesn’t work."
Pros: "Everything was nice.."
Cons: "None..."
Pros: "Fast and easy"
Pros: "the seats, the window"
Cons: "fliglth to short"
Pros: "Crew service, and service at Emirates lounge in Dubai, were outstanding"
Cons: "I cant cause im still at quantos waiting for them to find my god damn bags!"
Cons: "Delays boarding meant we were almost 30 mins late arriving in Wellington. Cramped seats on Qantas 737 plane"
Pros: "Comfortable overall, not much turbulance"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Modern spacious plane, on-board experience all fine. Flat beds in Bysiness are great."
Cons: "Boarding is shambolic - no signs, no announcements, first class passengers get herded into a large pen with the others , which leads to no reliable priority boarding. Flight was delayed 25 minutes (advised by kayak not Emirates); no acknowledgement of it - departure boards never reflected it, no announcement."
Pros: "Comfort, amenities"
Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas. Qantas does not honour the e-ticekts from Emirates and will NOT allow you to preselect seats online. You have to hope for a good seat at airport checkin. Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"
Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."
Cons: "Was not told that my luggage was on a weght system and not a piece system for a n international flight. I ended up paying $249 for my extra suitcase that weighted 25 lbs and it was only a 2.5 hour flighr!"
Pros: "Staff were quite attentive. All requested were promptly fulfilled"
Cons: "Service took a long time once on the flight. We left Sydney at 7pm and didn't receive any food or drinks for at least an hour and a half."
Pros: "Our seats & the crew."
Cons: "Food was ok & entertainment was ok but not great."
Pros: "A380! Overall is good. I liked a bag of accessories including eye mask and socks."
Cons: "In flight food in Arabic style, my brother didn't like much of that styled food. But I'm OK with it. They provided light meal ( "pide" lamb/veggie filled bread or choice of fruit). The veggie pide was a bit weird. But overall, the food was not so bad."
Pros: "Got upgraded to Business!"
Cons: "Nothing really, crew was professional"
Pros: "Wasn't full so there was space to street a bit. Stewardesses were polite and attentive - checking throughout whether drinks were required (on other flights they've disappeared between food services). Good selection of films."
Cons: "Although the good was actually alright in this flight, I don't like the fact that Emirates no longer do a vegetarian meal - I have to have a vegan meal instead, which often means things are just left off (not replaced) that I could actually eat, like cheese and biscuits, or a croissant."
Pros: "Bar in business class"
Cons: "I specifically booked my flight with emirates as I prefer their service,food,staff,seating and entertainment and was instead told once I arrived at Auckland airport that we were instead flying with qantas . Not impressed that we received no email or contact to inform us of this beforehand . The service itself from qantas was not bad but again some sort of notice would have been nice ."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Facilities excellent. Staff not quite so attentive on this leg of the trip."
Cons: "Just left to it. Not much fuss made."
Cons: "The fact that I didn't fly due to ill health and got no refund"
Pros: "Not much. The crew were bright and breezy. Ish."
Cons: "Emirates has applied EasyJet seat ramming techniques to its A380 business Class product. As a result even the spacious upper deck of an A380 feels cramped. The seat width in business Class is the same as economy so lying on your side to sleep is an impossibility for all but the diminutive or children. It’s hard to justify 4-5 times the economy fare to sit in such cramped ‘pile em high, sell em cheap’ seats. Breakfast served just before landing at LGW was honestly the most revolting meal I’ve ever been served onboard an aircraft, and I’ve flown Monarch. Less scrambled egg than puréed egg slops with gristly undercooked chicken sausages. Ryanair would blush at serving up such lousy fare. Emirates are paring back the ‘overheads’ in business Class and its starting to show. Cheapening the product (in every sense) might work for some but if I’m going to stump up thousands I think I’ll choose an airline that treats me less like self loading cargo in future."
Pros: "Great legroom in Economy seats on A380 DXB-LGW Good inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Inflight service perfunctory Food of adequate standard Both used to be much better on Emirates"
Pros: "all entertrainment onboard is excellent ."
Cons: "the flight is good,,but unfortunately the staff is not accomodating that much,,need some basic training on what kind of food you are serving to passenger.."
Pros: "Food was great! The aircraft was very nice and the flight attendants were so helpful! Only a 3 1/2 hour flight and it was the best way I have flown!"
Pros: "Entertainment & food options, onboard service, seat width & leg room (I'm just under 6 foot)"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Emirates doesn't fail! Great service!"
Cons: "On a long flight to Australia- the crew can occasionally tidy up the bathrooms"
Pros: "Generally good standard, nothing to sit about but there was a selection of recent and older films and TV, OK food and fairly comfortable seats."
Cons: "While the food was ok, there were some odd omissions from the vegetarian meals that sometimes made them seem smaller or worse value compared to the non-veggie options. Still better than I've had on some other airlines though."
Pros: "I liked the in flight entertainment, food, and decent leg room in comparison to other airlines. Also, a plus they have a good beverage selection."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"
Pros: "Emirates are always very good in every department, unfortunately for the third trip in succession on the outward journey they ran out of the main dish on the dinner menu."
Pros: "Loved the staff, very friendly and extremely accommodation nothing was too much trouble. Very comfortable"
Pros: "I was upgrade to first class, which was nice. Excellent services as usual with the added benefit of being in first class which is nice and special."
Cons: "The Venison main course was over done, which was a shame as everything else was spot on."
Pros: "Kind cabin crews"
Cons: "Be punctual"
Cons: "Food was not good and was insufficient."
Pros: "No power at the seats USB or otherwise"
Pros: "Not much. Incoming flight was late then turn-around was ridiculous."
Cons: "We had extra baggage, which I tried to pay online multiple times but the Virgin website kept indicating they are having problems. When we arrived at the airport the charged us basically twice (for extra bags) what we would have paid had they not rigged their website to make extra money."
Pros: "Departed on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Fine as is."
Pros: "I was able to sleep"
Cons: "Making sure there was a vegan food option and the crew knew."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Seats were fairly comfortable."
Pros: "The crew did well/"
Cons: "More information prior to boarding as to why we were 2 hours delayed."
Pros: "Yogurt and breakfast muffin were a nice surprise on our 3 hour flight. Seat space was not too bad."
Cons: "Would have liked an offer for more water."
Cons: "Planes could have been time Half way on the trip they cancel my plane had wait 4 hours late which means I had 12 hours fly from Tass to Towsviile"
Cons: "The air pressure in the plane not good causing significant pain I’m my ears"
Cons: "Tight leg room"
Cons: "Seats too close together"
Pros: "Entertainment."
Cons: "I had three flights with Virgin Australia, all to get to and from Sydney and to and from the US. ALL THREE FLIGHTS WERE DELAYED, one even being a 2-3hr delay, and compensation was only $8 AUD voucher at the airport - just enough to get coffee! Excuses were made due to weather, some say it was due to staff. Never will I fly with them. Disorganized and never on time."
Pros: "Politeness of staff Check in"
Cons: "Using the back stairs Inflight wifi Costs"
Cons: "Had to upgrade (paid) to economy-x to get better service, which was beyond worse in economy, over all it was okay"
Pros: "Nice ppl"
Cons: "Nothing it was great!"
Pros: "Seats reclined comfortably but were definitely cramped & crew was pleasant. I got my first choice on meals in both economy x while sitting in the front while headed to Oz and regular economy when sitting in the back on the way home."
Cons: "Only one drink service included, which came with the first meal. The rest of the options were water throughout the flight until breakfast when juice or coffees and teas were offered. Entertainment was a little dated, including HBO series from the early 2000’s rather than newer shows. Flight was an hour late without explanation & there wasn’t the starry night sky that I heard so much about. Overall I’d fly again if it was a good flight deal but I wouldn’t specifically seek the airline out when planning another trip."
Pros: "Coach seats are pretty comfortable. Crew announces for people to put their seats up when meals are served. Entertainment chicles were solid."
Cons: "Some crew members were aloof. Service was ok and very dependent on which crew member it was"
Pros: "Happy hour Is great marketing move for us tired working people to start our journey Like flights used to be"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Despite multiple confirmation emails from Kayak (including this survey). But I found out last minute from the airline that the flight never actually got booked, so I needed to book a different flight last minute."
Cons: "When booking nothing was said if you are traveling short hours like 3 or less even you are traveling international you have to pay for every baggage that you have to check in so we were surprised that we have to pay $230 for the 2 package we check in . Last time we have to use this airline"
Pros: "The actual flight was great."
Cons: "Virgin is way behind other airlines when it comes to baggage allowance. If you want to make more profit off of baggage fees, well job well done! Other airlines allot up to 32kg for checked bags... Virgin allots 23kg and only one checked bag for international flights. Robbery. The actually flight was great but I won’t fly Virgin again unless I only have a carryon... which is capped at 7kg!"
Pros: "Gate crew gave us extra seats to spread out and flight was around comfortable. Really enjoyed in-flight TV options"
Cons: "We normally love to check prices on KAYAK and then book directly through airlines which we thought we were doing in this incident. But after we booked we realized a third-party website – Webjet- would be handling our tickets which resulted in many problems. We ended up needing to change our itinerary in a simple way that would’ve been easy to do through the airline but webjet would not accommodate without spending $2500 in ticket fees. To avoid that we had to book additional tickets and take an additional flight that ended up being cheaper but quite the hassle that took way longer"
Cons: "Our luggage was left in LA. Hoping to get it tomorrow."
Pros: "Juice and jam biscuit"
Cons: "Long delay Plane arrived late Stuff ups trying to board 3 wheelchair passengers Long delay before takeoff"

Cons: "Everything was absolutely wonderful. No complains here!"
Pros: "Got away on time and landed early"
Cons: "Seats are quite narrow. This is a problem when i ended up stuck next to a rather large person!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Check in was terrible. The kiosks were not working and there was NO staff available to instruction or to ask questions. The check-in and bag drop off lines elevate terrible. I believe a big problem is they only allow one bag including carry-on and there were no signs indicating this!"
Pros: "Such a comfortable flight. No complaints at all."
Pros: "Can watch movies by phone"
Cons: "The food, the service are very normal"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Lack of communication - flights to and from Brisbane to Sydney 2/3 hours late in departure."
Pros: "Easy access from both front and back of plane."
Cons: "Stewardess got frustrated with my son ( almost yelling at him) instructing him to open the shade after the flight ended speaking Chinese to him. Though my son is half Asian, he doesn't speak a word of Chinese, she should have started with English !!! It was a flight from Australia for god sake."
Pros: "Seats, crew, boarding normal"
Cons: "No entertainment, food or charging port"
Pros: "The crew was great. Enough meals. Chips and snacks to grab in between meals. Clean bathrooms. I can't sleep on planes so there were enough films to keep me entertained there and back (watched 6 each way). Virgin is great would fly again in a heartbeat."
Pros: "Loved all the movies, TV shows, games and even meditation options."

Cons: "Only water and tea and drink options and the supposed Wi-Fi onboard didn't work at all."
Pros: "Easy to book and check in..."
Cons: "...but they randomly left my bag in Sydney with no explanation, creating very bad experience on a late night flight and causing me to get little sleep that night and following morning and ruining my plans in Melbourne the following day."
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Pros: "The crew was lovely. Super impressed."
Pros: "overall excellent service"
Pros: "Boarding from the rear as well as the front expedited the boarding process."
Cons: "Even though I checked into the flight before arriving at the airport, it took over 45 minutes to drop off my bag at Sydney domestic airport. They charge for soft drinks other than coffee & tea."

Pros: "Attendants were courteous and the food was good."
Cons: "The entertainment and info system was small and not clear."
Pros: "Had a line of seats to stretch out"
Cons: "Food was not good, coffee terrible"
Cons: "Super tight seating on the plane. Terrible customer service at checkin in Lanzarote. there was a weather issue the day prior and hundreds of travelers were stranded. The baggage belt was backed up and therefore the staff couldn’t check in more travelers. This, we learned, not from the staff, but from walking around and noting the stacks of luggage etc Far better would have been for them to inform the 200 or so people that were waiting in line for 1 hour. You must pay for anything on the flight. A small bag of peanuts or such would be nice."
Pros: "very comfortable but because it was not a full flight"
Cons: "The only problem that I had with my flight is that my luggage did not arrive on the same flight. Possibly due to my connecting flight from DCA to JFK. Both American Airlines and British Airways reassured me that it would be at Gatwick Airport when I arrived. Unfortunately, it did not. It took approximately four days to get my luggage. This was definitely a lessons learned."
Pros: "Very smooth landing"
Cons: "Lots of turbulence"
Pros: "Very nice and comfortable"
Pros: "Nice plane and nice staff"
Cons: "No free water or coffee? Absurd."
Pros: "Everything was super outdated I asked for new headphones never got them because the ones I’ve had didn’t work the TV screens were so small and so outdated, was a very bad experience"
Cons: "Everything was super outdated I asked for new headphones never got them because the ones I’ve had didn’t work the TV screens were so small and so outdated, was a very bad experience"
Cons: "The male crew in the bag is not try to help people put on the carry on language to the top of cabin. He stood there and look at us. When I directed to him and asked for help, he just stood there for few sec. and decieded to help me but with an attitude. Same as the other lady need their help to put the backpack in, both male crests stood there and wasn't planning to help, and the passenger stood up and assisted her."
Pros: "Got there safely"
Cons: "Had to pay any food or drink. Just cheap"
Cons: "Service"
Cons: "Very disappointed by the comfort of economy premium. Very!"
Cons: "90 minutes delay for a 1 hour flight. They blamed the weather but no other flights were delayed except this one. Also, I purchased a seat with no checked baggage allowance and was NOT aware of this when I booked. Will not be flying British Airways again."
Pros: "The crew was outstanding and courteous"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent service and amenities"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The food, the seats were old and cramped and i could feel every movement from the ppl behind and actually got shouted at by the man in front of me because i put my water bottle in the pouch in my seat. He thought i was punching the seat. inflight entertainment was brutal, limited selection of movies and bad ones at that. The screen was old and pixelated..... Food was bland and not edible. It was a red eye and we were not given eye masks, toothbrushes or ear buds. Horrble experience ill never fly BA again"
Cons: "1 hour delay on return journey on a packed flight, but at least that delay was in the airport and not sitting on a plane"
Pros: "Fold-down head rests"
Cons: "No tuck box"
Cons: "It took 1 hour to get a glass of water"
Pros: "Nothing, I never had the opportunity to board"
Cons: "We had a quick trip planned to the go to London traveling from Amsterdam with British Airways. We were able to check in without a problem, but getting through airport security took a substantial amount of time, which caused sever delays getting to the gate. Once at the gate, we were told that we could no longer board the plane as the gate had already closed. Even more shocking, the service people told use that our entire itinerary (AKA our return flight) was cancelled as a result of this. You can imagine our frustration as we had tickets in hand looking at the door to the plane that we would have been allowed to walk through had security taken 5 minutes less. In the states, if airport security is holding you from missing your flight, this is communicated with the airline and proper arrangements are made. Unfortunately, this was not the case, forcing us to buy a new (last minute) ticket and losing a lot of money."
Cons: "Friendly staff, clean plane"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable"
Pros: "Great crew, and delicious food! The seats were not bad either."
Cons: "The entertainment system was outdated."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and on the arrival we have to stay inside for sometime."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and helpful. My only complaint is the turbulence, but there's nothing hat can be done about that."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Long wait in boarding - flight was delayed"
Cons: "I ordered a ginger ale onboard. When the stewardess took my order and went to swipe my card, he made a comment that sometimes they have difficulties with USA credit cards. He tried 3 different cards and then when nothing worded, he asked if I had pounds to pay with. I stated no, that I had Croatian crowns, Euros or US Dollars on me at that point in time. He then looked over at me and very rudely asked me why in the heck I ordered the drink to begin with. I was already embarrassed that he was having trouble with my cards so to yell at me in front of everyone so much to the point the lady in the next row heard hi and offered to buy my drink for me. I would like to point out that even he made the remark that the machine sometimes has difficulty taking US cards. How was I supposed to know that none of the three cards that I had on me wouldn't work. I never had any issues with either of those three cards after that incident. They worked just fine so it was clearly an issue with your machine not my cards. I feel it was very inappropriate for him to treat me that way (especially over a stupid soda). My luggage then didn't make it to Ibiza in time because it got stuck in London due to my short layover. If BA can't figure out how to get the luggage transferred within that short of a period, they should not offer flights that close to each other. Secondly, I left a really nice down pillow and bag on my flight from London to Ibiza and I checked the lost in found at the Ibiza airport and it was never turned in. I never recommend BA to anyone."
Cons: "Iberia airlines, operating for BA, refused to honor the tickets we had bought via Airfare .com. Would not let me fly!!!!!!! After several hours they found a way to put us on a later flight--got in late, had to stay overnight in Orlando. Don't understand!!!! Wife and I are in 70's--spent 22 hours trying to get home!!!"
Pros: "The customer service representatives are very apologetic and helpful."
Cons: "Lack of punctuality. For any flight through British Airways, do not expect to be on time. Both flights were delayed; significantly so that the group I was with ended up missing the connecting flight (that shockingly left on time)"
Cons: "Not really friendly. Nothing to drink. Super separated from my husband. Baby crying the whole time."
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Pros: "Choppy Flight. Amazing Pilot"
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "I was not able to select my seat until 24 hours before the flight without paying, which I think is ridiculous. Once I checked in 24 hours before, I was still not able to select my seat. The problem was related to me booking through a partner airline. The partner (American Airlines) couldn't help me because they couldn't access the BA seats. And BA couldn't help me on the phone to select my seat for some other reason (I can't remember). I had to wait until I got to JFK a few hours before the flight, by which time all the seats were filled and I was stuck in a middle seat. Basically, I think there needs to be better communication or coordination between BA and their partner airlines to help customers before the flight, and also it is absurd to charge $35 to choose their seat."
Pros: "The customer service rep from the United at the check-in was awesome."
Cons: "I bought my ticket from My vegan food choice did not feed into Air China. I had no food."
Cons: "got crushed here at airport. There was a lot of people here at 5am. No one was at the ticket counter and all check-ins were automated. So no staff available at ticket counter. The auto system didn’t recognize my passport with the ticket. Then I had to go to duty manager who was not helpful."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "restroom lines were less due to limited choice of drinks which turned out positive specially when flight was full."

Cons: "Had an issue with our tickets tried calling kayak and no answer Air China was unable to resolve the issue either. Won’t be using either one again."

The instructions read "To claim the currency compensation, passengers must have a debit card issued in mainland China and marked with Union Pay!" If you are not a Chinese resident, you are out of luck!!! Americans be warned: Fly Air China and be treated a second class passengers!"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Overall i won't prefer to travel from this airlines anymore."
Cons: "the way airline treat the passenger was very poor and rude. I came to know this when my Air China flight from Sydney to Chengdu have been cancelled on 16th of November 2017 at 21:40 pm. I had to reach my destination on time by 17th of November 2017 to attend my marriage ceremony but unfortunately i missed and had to bear a great loss. THEREFORE, I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST A COMPENSATION AND REFUND FOR MY FLIGHT."
Pros: "I liked the food but few selections. I liked having ice cream as a treat."

Cons: "Lost luggage needed for meetings, takes three days to recover. Coffee is gross, 3in1 powder. Only one water bottle on flight so I got dehydrated. Food is gross."
Pros: "Fare prices were inexpensive."
Cons: "1 out of the 2 meals did not taste like much. Meat was extremely chewy. 2 hour layover was not enough time to do customs and re-check-in through security to catch the domestic flight. Beijing airport employees barely knew where to direct you for reacquiring a new flight."

Nonalcoholic beverage selection was very limited. 4. Very small English movie selection for a very long flight. 5. Blankets were used and had stains for the previous flight. I've flown different airlines before and never had this many issues. Air China please take a step back and reevaluate."
Pros: "Good service overall"
Cons: "Some delays in flights, and poor communication. Nothing too bad, but sometimes we were left wondering what happened, or when we could expect the flight to depart. If I had close connection times, I would have lost two flights"
Pros: "I made it in the end"
Cons: "first flight to China was delayed so the connecting flight to Tokyo was missed. no explanation was given for the delay no food vouchers were available that night they lost my bag in china for 3 hours they brought me to hotel in unmarked bus with no explanation hotel told me that air china would only cover half the cost so I need to pay more or share a room the next day, air china's manager was uninterested in helping or explaining there hotel arrangements food on the last flight was just rice gruel and an aged egg. I am flexible but that's not even considered a meal in china. there is at least salt or pickled things in it. audio ports on plane did not work properly. on arriving home, most of the items in my suit case were crushed (coat hangers snapped, boxes crushed, bags ripped open) my dslr camera batteries were all taken (alkaline based ones) I travel between japan and america two or three times a year for the last 30 years. this last trip was one for the books! not sure where to start"
