Pros: "Helpful staff both on ground and in the air"
Cons: "- The plane supposedly has free wifi :) :) :) but this is too good to be true. After a long and complicated procedure “all free wifi passes are gone, try again next time”. Someone said there are only 70 passes for the entire plane. - Similar experience with “free wifi” Guangzhou’s Bayun airport if you don’t have a Chinese simcard in your phone. - Navigating China Southern’s website for online check-in is a nightmare."

Pros: "None. My first and last flight with China Southern Airlines."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours and nobody from to Los Angeles has already left us. They said it was due to bad weather, but from what I saw there was only a little rain when we arrived. I think their using it as an excuse to justify their poor service."

Cons: "It was a horrible flight for me will never travel again with you guys"

Cons: "They didn’t have sparkling water!"
Cons: "They left one of my bags in China. I need it"
Cons: "Transit process in Guangzhou Baiyun is very disappointing as we had to step down the staircase to the tarmac squeezed onto the bus that takes us around the airport to get drop off in another side of the airport, giving me very little time to run for my connecting flight. Airline also left my luggage in Guangzhou, so am yet to receive my luggage as per now."
Cons: "I still don’t have my luggage and I’m coming home. Awful"
Pros: "WiFi on board"

Cons: "food was edible- but that was about it. I don't eat pork so not so good for the other option. entertainment was blah..."

Cons: "The airline was fine but the booking agent cancelled my reservation by mistake. I know mistakes happen but when I tried to resolve this problem Justfy.com put me on hold for hours on the day I'm suppose to fly out. I had to go to Twitter to get a call back, I will never use just fly.com again."
Cons: "Not being able to get a 24 hour visa to leave the airport and spending 10 hours waiting for the connecting flight at the airport"
Pros: "On time..Great!"
Cons: "Boarding process, families were not given seats next to each other so there was a lot of chaos inside when they kept trying to ask fellow passengers to move etc."
Pros: "China Southern gave me a complimentary upgrade to premium economy for both legs of my flight."
Cons: "The food was below average airline food. A omelette I was served was not edible."

Pros: "The food is good"

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."
Cons: "4 hour delay without sufficient reason, Uncomfortable seat."
Cons: "Cell phones prohibited for the ENTIRETY of this 12-hour flight, not just takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Not your fault but I had to wait for over 30 minutes to get my baggage in LA because the machine did not work for a long time."
Pros: "Cleanliness"
Cons: "Our baggages was left in Guangzhou due to delayed departure from LA"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "At the end of our trip, 3 weeks later, we arrived in HAN to make our 3:45PM flight - constantly checking the status to make sure the flight would not be late again. The flight ended up getting delayed 30 minutes, then another 30, then an hour, and longer until the flight was delayed 5 hours total. China Southern employees at HAN wouldn’t move us to new flights and tried to tell us that we would make our layover in CAN despite this flight landing at 11:15 and our flight from CAN leaving at 10:05. We checked online and found there were no flights out of CAN to SFO until 24 hours later, yet there was a routing directly out of HAN. We told the employees it would be useless for them to fly us to CAN because we would be stuck there. They ignored us and told us it was fine and to fly to China. When we tried to explain, the employee simply walked away. We landed in CAN and were met with employees who first told us at 12:30pm flight to LAX the next day was booked full and they wanted us to wait 24 hours. When I told them that wasn’t true, they recanted and said “oh we can get you on the flight.” I asked for compensation since this was the second layover that was missed because of airline failure and a manager at the Transfer Desk told us he could not upgrade us to premium seating because all the seating was sold out. When we finally sat on the 12:30PM flight to LAX we found that not only did Economy have open seats, but so did premium seating. We were lied to by the manager at the Transfer Desk in CAN and when we explained the situation to flight attendants that we wanted one of the open seats they told us no. In addition, during our overnight stay in CAN due to China Southern employees at HAN not switching our routing, we were put in a hotel that smelled of smoke and had water stains in the room. We were woken up early to catch a shuttle back to the airport and when we arrived at the airport to ask for food vouchers to eat breakfast since our layover was longer than 12 hours, we were also told no. Overall I am completely dissatisfied with both flights on China Southern. I was lied to, cheated, and held up over 24 hours in China due to airline mistake and their unwillingness to book us new tickets. I spent hours at airports talking to airline employees and because of these hours spent we should be reimbursed for our flight."
Pros: "Because of our 8-hour layover in Guangzhou, China Southern gave us a free hotel room 30 minutes from the airport, which included a free buffet breakfast. The bus to the hotel was also complementary. Also, they fed us twice on the trip from LAX, and once more on the flight to Hanoi."
Cons: "The food was okay but could be improved. Also, the online check-in system for our flight from LAX was unavailable."
Pros: "The A319 had far more room than I'm used to in coach. Crew was pleasant. Dining was very rushed in this under-2-hour flight."
Cons: "Something to be aware of: It's the People's Republic of China. They tell you this in the announcements. You're not supposed to use your cell phone at all in flight, even in airplane mode. Some government inspectors went through my checked suitcase and removed a lithium power pack and left me a note."
Pros: "On time, promotly service."
Pros: "The ground staff were also very helpful."
Pros: "no fat flight attendants"
Pros: "The service was friendly."
Cons: "We left a little bit late, but they kept us informed the whole tme and apologized considerately."
Pros: "The planes are new."
Cons: "They don't allow cell phone use in airplane mode at anytime during the flight. China has a law against cellphone use on planes and they enforce it in international airspace and over other countries's airspace as well. This is a violation of passengers' rights."
Pros: "a very organized boarding and comfortable seats"
Cons: "There is no baggage transfer for international connecting flight. No hotel is provided from the airlines for international travelers, transit time is 12hours"
Pros: "Excellent service from the ground staff"
Cons: "Better food served in the lounge"
Pros: "Friendly Professionalism Promptness"
Cons: "FA’s distributed food but never came back. Also didn’t collect used containers until flight was in decent stage. They were generally unavailable unless you rang the FA button(which I never do)"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and friendly. Seats are a little bit too small with a little bit not enough room side to side and front to back."

Pros: "Room on the plane, layout of the plane, early arrival"
Cons: "Add CNN news to your tv channels"

Cons: "Snack option"
Cons: "None."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "The ticketing and boarding process went well."
Cons: "The staff was short and rude at times and the food on the return trip was the same two choices for the meals and "breakfast" was a smear of tuna on a huge bun -- basically mostly bread. The movie selection was old and outdated."
Pros: "Getting a poncho to help stay dry as we exited the plane for the shuttle bus."
Cons: "Not a lot of room. Also, doesn't anyone use a napkin in Asia?"
Pros: "Still in China!"
Pros: "Good selection of movies"
Cons: "The food were not fresh and ill prepared"
Pros: "Then entertainment selection"
Cons: "Disorganized Grumpy staff"
Pros: "Will not flight this airline again"
Cons: "Poor service from a to z"
Cons: "I was not able to board the flight in Laos. I had a visa for Shanghai which was my final destination but the airline would not let me fly through Kunming without a transit visa. The staff was very rude and would not listen to me. They just kept saying I could not board the flight. They would not help me to change or re-book a flight and was fine to leave me stranded in Laos. The airport did not have wifi or any resources. I had to please to pay a kiosk to use their wifi so that I could rebook my flight through another transit province. It was a horrible experience and left me out a few hundred dollars."
Pros: "the pleasantries"
Cons: "the unpleasantries"
Cons: "The staff was not helpful and unfriendly. Food was horrible and no options. We payed for extra leg space and it turned out it was not the case and we had no option in flight to buy space , furthermore would had cost 2 time more then any other airline. Entertainment was mediocre. Very high fees to change a flight. We will not fly with this company again, and do not recommend unless stress is what you looking for."

Cons: "Couldn’t use iPhones... even on airplane mode"
Cons: "Didn't even get into that"
Pros: "Their Customer Service Staff at the Singapore branch office was very helpful."
Pros: "Quick check in and boarding"
Cons: "Everything Else"
Pros: "Fight crew was amazing"
Pros: "The airline did its job in getting me there alive and on time."
Cons: "Not comfortable. Cant use phones at all. Crew wasn't very hospitable. Entertainment system wasn't fully functional. They make you close the shades no matter what time it is which takes away the perks of having a window seat."
Cons: "The tickets should be printed for all legs of the trip so i didn't have to wait in line for another ticket. The kiosks are confusing , people didn't know where to insert their passports."
Pros: "First their pricing beats all by a significant amount. Crew is great and the airline club is a good size."
Pros: "Crew was great. Friendly, communicated to different nationalities well. Helpful."
Cons: "Seat, entertainment & meals were good, but not great. In Jakarta it took 1 hr. for first luggage to appear on the belt."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good."
Cons: "I asked if I could have a aisle or window seat and was told there was nothing available at the counter, however there were plenty of seats available on the plane."
Pros: "Check-in counter staff"
Cons: "Crew was horrible, crew was stealing and stashing away half bottles of wine for their consumption. I saw male crew stealing & later taking it upstairs where they rest during long flights. Quality & Quantity of food was horrible but still acceptable due to low price tickets. The crew behavior was horrible for STEALING WINE for their own consumption."
Pros: "Seat were comfortable and boarding was done quickly."
Cons: "They make you take off your headphones and secure all electronic devices before taking off and landing. Even if you are using the headphones for noise reduction they make you take them off until the plane is in the air for 15 minutes. Cellphones in airplane mode cannot be used during the flight at all. Entertainment was lacking tremendously!"
Pros: "The food was good, the attendants were friendly and there was a lot of free movies for my 17 hour flight. I would definitely recommend this airline to friends and family."
Cons: "I didn't like how uncomfortable the seats were and the little bit of space we were given. However, I still really enjoyed flying with this airline and would recommend it."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "This flight was over 4 hours late and we took the train."
Pros: "The seats were pretty comfortable Crew was nice and accommodated me not speaking Chinese Flight was as smooth and quick as could be expected"
Cons: "Not very much space Had one TV for all of the first four rows Did not allow any use of cell phones or charging bricks No modern amenities such as entertainment, outlets, USB ports, etc."
Pros: "The plane was new, and free movies."
Cons: "We missed our connection to LAX and the CE personnel in Shanghai we rude, impatient and not helpful. Based on that I would avoid flying China Eastern again. Also the flight from DEL to PDU was a long flight with no movies. Not competitive."
Cons: "They didn't inform visa issues and made the customers to buy new tickets on the following day. It's completely irresponsible and I feel like that I was robbed."
Pros: "The plane from LAX to Shanghai-Pudong was very nice and modern. It was a Boeing 777-300ER and was pretty comfortable in economy class with individual monitors behind each headrest. The entertainment on board was very good. The food was mediocre at best, but for the price point I have absolutely no regrets. The stewardess that was in our section was very cold but not unfriendly. We had a brief layover in Shanghai before heading to Seoul Incheon. The plane from Shanghai to Seoul was an older Airbus 330. It was pretty outdated and my armrest next to the window seat was actually half missing. Overall though, I was pleasantly surprised that they served a meal on the fight, and the flight attendants on this fight were much more friendlier than the previous international route. One recommendation is that China Eastern not post the production date on their bread rolls. There was a Korean passenger in front of me who thought the bread was expired and it caused a commotion on the plane. I was very impressed by how the attendants handled the situation. They were very friendly and even the head flight attendant came by to apologize although it was not needed."
Cons: "Cold flight attendants. The attendants did their jobs, but I felt like they were there to collect their paychecks not to provide world class service or be friendly. (LAX to Shanghai) Very spotty Wi-Fi in Shanghai (not the airlines fault). Food was not memorable. I was missing a large piece of my armrest from Shanghai to Seoul."
Pros: "Pleasant trip for the most part, friendly crew, easy boarding"
Cons: "Can't use phone, headphones provided don't fit entertainment systems on seat backs, so no way to watch"
Pros: "Plane was reasonable and comfortable, modern, good entertainment"
Cons: "Delay in getting into Shanghai caused 24 hour delay there. China Eastern put me up in a hotel, but 24 hours wasted. Minimum 2 hours in Shanghai if you want to make it - terribly busy airport, and most planes boarded and deplaned by bus"
Pros: "Probably worst airline ever flown, but good price. About 40% cheaper than others."
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours on tarmac. Worst food, bad service, no in flight entertainment. Pretty much international flight you can get."
Pros: "cheap price, unforgettable vacation"
Cons: "I cannot complain, but wish I reserved the window seats on thelong flight back. (my fault though)."
Pros: "This time the food was really good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation. The entertainment screens were with a low quality of picture and sound. Sometimes the crew forgers to speak English, and you need to know Chinese."
Cons: "I never got to fly. I got stuck in Bangkok because China Eastern wouldn't let me use my ticket. They just told me to buy another ticket."
Cons: "They changed the flight schedule during the last few days. Their phone lines don't work, either they don't pick up or all they speak is Chinese. The airport staff is mind-bogglingly uncooperative. They didn't even offer me a hotel for the 21 hours layover I was forced to endure. No one had proper answers; they were just sending me from one desk to the other till I gave up and slept at the airport itself."
Pros: "The food was good. The crew who helped us come by frequently to provide water and snacks."
Cons: "Bad turbulence, which is out of their control. But I don't have much concern on the flight back."
Pros: "Ok, staff was good, some passengers, not."
Pros: "Attentive stagf, but less attentive than previous flight."
Cons: "1. Couldnt use mobile phone for reading only (mobile phones had to be completely switched off). I wont be flying China Eastern because of this rule. 2. Business class seats where not good (poor adjustment, too far from TV, no window accesible without getting out of seat) 3. Boarding and unboarding on tarmac was inconvenient. 4. Movie selection not up to date"
Cons: "The customer service relations at the front desk to check in word is awful and unfriendly the flight was uncomfortable the entertainment controller does not work 90% of the time it was just a bad experience flying with you in general"
Pros: "Flights were on time and able to have 2 checking baggage"
Cons: "Their english is so bad that you have a lot of difficulties to understand them."
Cons: "FOOD TABLA WAS BROKEN AND THE WINE FELT ON ME AND THE OTHER PERSON NEXT TO ME. MY BAGGAGES DIDNT ARRIVED TO MY FINAL DESTINY."
