Pros: "All are fine"
Cons: "Choice of food should be offered"

Pros: "very Good service"

Pros: "Never flew with China Southern before. Really excellent service."
Cons: "Need sweeteners for beverages besides sugar."

Pros: "short (14 hours) flight. food is okay as airplane food. seats are pretty big."
Cons: "The only complaining is there isn't any Cantonese movies as it supposed to be a Guangzhou (廣東)/ New York bounds."

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: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Over 2 hours late on departure"

Pros: "Few passengers, so plenty of space to relax."

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "The total unprofessional service/ way we have been treated. Never again I will fly with this company. 2 hours delay from Amsterdam for a unknown reason as their English is very poor. As we took off we shared our concern for our connection in Guangzhou, after managing to find someone able to speak and understand English (unbelievable on an international flight) we have been told that would be fine and eventually worst case scenario there is another flight during the day. When we arrived we have been told nothing (even though we shared our concern from the beginning, they didn’t care at all, connection from the same company), when we went out of the plane we ask a crew member in the exit corridor who replied like annoyed of the question that’s fine take next on the left and next on the right (more with gesture than with an English language) when we arrived after running at the transfer gate we asked about the connection to Sydney the first staff told us that the gate was already closed and it’s too late, we then asked what to do : go in this queue and didn’t want to speak anymore. When we arrived at the desk we have been told gate is closed, wait on the side we’ll see later, we asked when and have been replied later....after 30min we have been told that there is no other flight before the day after (same company, different speech...) and wait again....there is another flight the day after in the morning with 6 seats available only...for the rest we don’t know we have to check but it’s gonna be hard because it’s the high season : Unbelievable as we were 15-20 people in this situation...after a couple of hour we have been offered to travel via Vietnam with a stop of 9 extra hours before having another flight of 9hours if we didn’t accept this one they didn’t know... Never ever again with this company and this airport..."

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: "Price"
Cons: "Leg room in economy is tight"

Pros: "Professionalism of the Crew."
Cons: "Business class seat are tired and in need of an overdue update."

Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful"
Cons: "My Baggage came on the next flight and not on the one i boarded which caused a lot of problems"

Pros: "Pretty much everything."
Cons: "The food could be better."

Pros: "The flight itself was excellent !"
Cons: "I had to return early because of a Crisis in the Family. the amount charged to change the ticket date as Highway Robbery. no consideration what so ever !"

Cons: "Didn’t receive the special meal that was ordered"

Pros: "Cabin crew support for food."
Cons: "Availability of limited Bollywood movies. Expecting English subtitles for Hollywood movies"

Pros: "movies"
Cons: "no directions to the hotel during our layover. No English spoken at the hotel! Very confusing."

Pros: "window control"
Cons: "I travel to see the places I go, not to watch movies instead. I found the auto-darkening of the window infuriating as I couldnt look out to watch the world I travel to see. Pretty much makes flying a waste of time if you are forced to look at movies you dont really want to watch because the real reason you bought the ticket is denied you without warning it will happen prior to investing in the ticket for the route. Button at seat worked for a while to sneak a peak at the real world but then the system seemed to take over and tell me to conform with the demand I not look."

Cons: "I'm sorry but the Chinese push people and crowd people like no other. There's no such thing as personal space. For that reason, I won't book on this airline again. The Beijing Airport wasn't pleasant. Had to sit downstairs in the basement gate area just to get internet connection which was non existent. Airport was pretty small to be waiting around for 3 hours. Won't connect through there again."

Cons: "Guangzhou airport transfer was uncomfortable expensive and won’t be traveling via this airport again"

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: "A solid overall airline. Nothing extraordinary, but will get you to where you need to go comfortably."
Cons: "Nothing stands out as obvious, but it’s simply apparent the airline isn’t flying big spenders."

Pros: "We took China Southern from Sydney to Guangzhou few weeks ago , the crew was rude, very bad services, but when we come back from Guangzhou to Sydney yesterday, same airline, Crew was excellent. can't understand why so much different in two different days."
Cons: "We took China Southern from Sydney to Guangzhou few weeks ago , the crew was rude, very bad services, but when we come back from Guangzhou to Sydney yesterday, same airline, Crew was excellent. can't understand why so much different in two different days. the services need to be consistent ."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ground staff did not want to help me and refused to put me on this flight because they reffered to no transit visa, although I was legally allowed to get on the flight as I have just found out, but it is gone already. As a result all my consecutive flight were cancelled as no show. I tried to reach the airline help line, however due to Chinese New Year they don't work, so there was no way to solve this problem I am VERY dissapointed. Will take this case to the court if my money not refunded"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent pilot. Good skills. Steady take-off and landing."
Cons: "Food on board wasn’t nice at all. The quality of food should be improved and China Southern should take it seriously."

Pros: "One of crew lady was very rude. Lunch was bed , but movies were great!"
Cons: "Was comfortable flight, didn't late for first time. But disappointed with crew."

Pros: "Nice staff nice food,"

Pros: "It wasn’t a difficult flight"
Cons: "Wish there would’ve been inflight entertainment"

Pros: "Cabin crew very courtious and professional."
Cons: "Sitting on the Business class seats is like sitting a lump of rocks."

Pros: "Service and aircraft fleet."
Cons: "Most flights delayed for no good reason. Miss connections on both legs of our round trip to India"

Pros: "Wonderful staff. We had a problem with our entertainment system and so they upgraded us to first class. Felt really valued."

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "We were left on the plane for over 6 hours without taking off before a 13 hour flight. The captain only came on the intercom once. All he said at that time was "sorry for the delay,";no explanation. The flight attendance kept saying 20 mins. The captain locked the crew door so the crew also had no idea what was going on. The 6+hour delay wasn't the problem. Things happen. The problem was the non existing communication. I read the the regulations for delays like that on their website and it stated that after 4 hours they have to give us the option to get off the plane. That didn't happen until 30 mins before we took off. It also stated that the captain needs to keep us updated every 30 mins. That again, didn't happen. People were hysterical, for obvious reasons. Ithe was the worst flight I have ever taken."

Cons: "Me and many customers on CZ 371 lost our baggages during the transit in Guangzhou. Still no update on lost and found yet."

Cons: "Left 1 and a half hours late, the entertainment system was broken (14 hour flight)... made our connection but waited on the runway another hour. Arrive at our destination and our luggage is missing. They say we’ll have em in a week... no offer of compensation especially since I have to spend $100 to taxi back to the airport to get them if I want them earlier"

Pros: "Basically I didn’t like much. Food was terrible, individual tv entertainment wasn’t available on my return flight A330."
Cons: "Food , tv, many hours of waiting for boarding"

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

Pros: "Never flown this airline or even come to this part of the world before this trip so had no expectations. But the flight crew was super helpful, courteous, food was good, and flight was pleasant with good entertainment."
Cons: "They didn’t have sparkling water!"

Pros: "Great staff, food, comfort. Very clean toilets."

Pros: "Crew are always good on CS. Ontime pretty much too which is a blessing."
Cons: "Still the quality or food and beverage selection is below the standard of other airlines. Perhaps a small spend increase by the airline on the quality will offer big gains. Entertainment has actually gone backwards. I have been flying this airline for years and it was good ! Not now seats are a little uncomfortable with not much padding."

Pros: "Friendliness of staff."
Cons: "Tired and outdated business class seats. Use of buses to take passengers to aircraft."

Pros: "Great entertainment - The plane offers a ton of blockbuster movies that are recent and from many catagories. They also offer TV from different lands and video games and selection of languages to hear them in. Great food - Even economy passengers get great free food during the trip. For a trip as long as going from Washington DC to BeiJing, they give you two dinners. Roominess - The seats are as cramped as any airline. However, the flight attendants don't give you are trouble when you want to get up and walk around and stay standing and talking with people of a long time. It has two isles so it feels pretty roomy to get up and walk around. Friendly staff- They make american flight staffs look very rude."
Cons: "Leading up to the flight, customer service can only be contacted by email. Don't even try calling. They never pick up and won't get back to you. At least the flight is very good."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Movies could have more selection."

Pros: "The customer service rep from the United at the check-in was awesome."
Cons: "I bought my ticket from justfly.com. My vegan food choice did not feed into Air China. I had no food."

Pros: "Everything is good but there are kids make noisy during the sleeping and no one stop them."

Cons: "1. I am not sure if your crew members could speak English or not. I didn’t understand what they were talking about or what was happening. 2. The plane took off under extreme thunderstorm. I am not sure if this was safe to do so but the plane was extremely bumpy, going down rapidly for about 30 minutes. The whole cabin was then in chaos. People started turning up, crying and writing last words. However, your crew members GAVE NO INSTRUCTIONS, BROADCASTING OR UPDATES ON WHATS GOING ON. What they did was mocking around with each other in Cantonese. 3. This would be my last time travel with you - I was your loyal customer since student time. But after this awful experience I chose not to go with you anymore."

Cons: "Be on time"

Pros: "The seating was very comfortable"
Cons: "The food wasn’t that great, normally in premium economy you get the same food business class. But even compared to economy the foods was not good enough."

Pros: "The seating wasnt very comfortable"
Cons: "The food wasn’t that great and the seating was old."

Cons: "Decent budget flights. Short transfer time onto second leg was perfect and easy to follow. Only advice is not to use e.dreamers as agent, they add on a hefty fee unable to back out of. Lesson learnt!"

Pros: "Everything smooth and comfortable"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment system was very limited and of no interest"

Pros: "The crew were very attentive. Lie down seat"
Cons: "A little outdated for Business class in comparison with other airlines however for the price i would say it's worth it."

Cons: "User totally different airline than air China The seats are far too small for Western people"

Cons: "There’s no way to request vegan meals via the site kayak referred us to (no air China). 14 hours on a plane with no food was brutal. Not a fan of the 787s - they somehow have even less room than their predecessors and when the person in front of you puts their seat back you have about 12” of space."

Pros: "Seat is more comfortable then other economy class"
Cons: "They really need to improve in food, quality and Choices. The cabin crew lacks warmth."

Pros: "It didn't crash"
Cons: "1. The website didn't work so I could not choose my seat upfront, had to seat next to the bathroom, it was hours of torture 2. Absolutely grumpy flight attendants 3. No electronic equipment allowed, even in airplane mode (?? nonsense) 5. I will never, in any case, ever fly Air China again in my life"

Pros: "The plane was about 3/4 full, so it felt like there was extra room. It was a red-eye flight, easy to sleep and quiet."
Cons: "Be prepared for some pushing and shoving by the other passengers."

Pros: "The 748 is nice and new and in premium economy the legroom stretches for miles"
Cons: "They lost our Bags! Crew did not speak english! Transferring is a pain! Food was very poor quality"

Cons: "Barely any legs room to move around and I’m 5”3"

Cons: "Our flight was severely delayed 6 hours from Heathrow, and that is where this horror story began. No one bothered to tell us anything. When we arrived in Beijing for our connection to Bangkok, we had to search out people for help, there was absolutely no one forthcoming with explanations. We were travelling as 2 friends, I was booked on one flight and my travelling companion on another 15 hours later! This only got changed when we explained that we both only had hand luggage! To then board the flight and sit on the tarmac, engines running, simply waiting, no explanations again!! Will we ever fly China Airways again?? If we could exchange our return flight tickets to that of another Star Alliance member we would."

Pros: "Reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "No movie selection and nowhere to charge phones. On line check in was a nightmare."

Pros: "I was surprised that there were tons of in flight entertainment to select from. Crew was also very nice"
Cons: "The seats weren’t the most comfy and one of the meals was bad"

Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Boarding was prompt and efficient."
Cons: "No power sockets to charge phones, Entertainment selection and functionality completely outdated, just managed to watch 1 movie before I gave up trying. The air hostess tried to help but mentioned that it’s just slow. During dinner service I asked for a second glass of wine with my meal but was refused as only 1 glass of beer or wine is allowed per passenger and flight, which I found very stingy as an airline and irritating from a customer care perspective."

Pros: "the timliness the processing at beijing the helpful checkin people at the akl airport. The baggage delivered promptly and without breakage. The crew worked hard to ensure"
Cons: "the shops at air port are expensive the toilet sinks were slopping and did not drain well the airline apologizing for the lack of food choice before each service pl advise airline to ask for choice at the check-in or at least make a note of the preference through email, makes life easier for them and the passengers. announcements were in chinese and the english ones were not very clear . it would be good if the announcements also came up on the seat screens CLEANLINESS WAS AN ISSUE with the overhead lockers not clean to the pull up table and magazine spaces not clean"

Pros: "Crew was very cooperative."
Cons: "Not enough English movies or series or songs. Tv screen not working. My baggage got delayed by 2 days"

Cons: "Air China practices very democratic way (in a bad eay) of boarding the plane, without distinguishing the 1st class, busineas class, and Star Alliance members from the rest of the passengers. The food is abit overly simple, in spite of the short flight - a sendwich wrapped in an alu-foil... And it was crazy cold in the cabin."

Cons: "Customer service on the flight was poor ."

Pros: "Very good service on board, crew very attentive and polite."
Cons: "Lack of communication with customers in change of situation. Airline had to change the aircraft and as a result all passengers had to be transported to the new aircraft by buses rather than via boarding bridges. It was the longest airport shuttle ride ever because no one told us what to expect. People complained. But airline could have managed expectations better by giving notice to customers what will happen next, customers will be more forgiving that way."

Cons: "See above..."

Cons: "I have to change schedule but cannot do it on-line. I ended up purchasing a new ticket. I try to cancel the ticket but cannot do it on-line."

Cons: "I’ve never been on a long haul flight and perspired through my short the entire 14 hours. Hot and stuffy... not great!"

Pros: "Was the cheapest option at the time, and quality wasn't worse than the others"

Pros: "For a long and filled flight it was comfortable"
Cons: "Stewardess was somewhat rude and uncaring"

Pros: "I loved AirChina! We also got the 72 hour permit and wished that our layover was longer. We loved Beijing and AirChina!"
Cons: "Leaving :("

Pros: "The dumpling. The on board staff were very pleasant and had a lovely glass of coke cola with ice bit small though."
Cons: "After 30 hours of travelling and no problems my luggage got lost on my last flight. I still haven’t got it yet, my medication was In there and it has ruined the whole trip for me. I am so upset with service I can’t begin to explain the pain I am now suffering. I have no clothes other than what I’m wearing. I have no toothpaste or toiletries. I feel ashamed of myself as I have dirty clothes on. I am truly not satisfied with my service. I have been let down to the highest order."

Pros: "Ran on time"
Cons: "Food and drink options are limited"

Pros: "Love the space of airplane"

Pros: "on the plane, Crew in CA are great! Food is delicious! Entertainment is very good!"
Cons: "I had a terrible time yesterday when I had to transfer from CA 4120 to CA 429 in Chengdu Shuangliu to Sydney. When I got off at Shuangliu airport From CA 4120 at 23:50pm, there was no airport bus to transfer me from T2 to T1 international Departure at Chengdu Shuangliu. I have to run in the dark nearly 2 km to catch 1:20 am CA 429 to Sydney Australia. Really bad international service in Chengdu Shuangliu!!"

Pros: "Plane was clean. Had electrical outlet between seats on one of my international flights (not the return flight). Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Seats felt close together. Crew doesn't really return smiles. Food wasn't great. English movies that weren't "B" level were few on my first flight, better on my return flight. Not much refreshment in the 7 or so hours between meals. Did not have electrical outlets between seats on one of my international flights. English translations of announcements were difficult to understand."

Cons: "It was not a pleasant stay in Beijing airport... The staff were very rude and not helpful.. I had to fight for the wi-fi code and I had to fill out a form, for a pass to get out if the airport... I waited over 90 mins in line, only to be told I was I the wrong line, in the first place ??? !!"

Pros: "Nice carrier. Enough leg room and clean flight"
Cons: "Entertainment had very limited options. I had booked my flight through travel agent vayama. I would never ever recommend people to use that travel agency. It takes approx 35-45 mins to contact customer care, you are way better off taking the tickets from airline as they cannot help much if the tickets are done through agency and not airline directly. Moreover the agency charges additional fee over and above airline fees for any changes"

Pros: "The staff was helpful"
Cons: "The flight was cramped up and not clean"

Pros: "The lovely crew."
Cons: "Transferring at Chengdu airport is not a good experience."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I lost two days due to this mistake."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly, spoke great English, even though my wife was happy to translate, but was not needed. Good food."
Cons: "The plane was quite outdated, and so the entertainment system. However, it was comfortable to sleep."

Cons: "No personal entertainment but a lot of leg room"

Pros: "My previous flight was delayed so I missed the plane I was scheduled for, but Air China found me a replacement flight that was only a couple of hours later. Despite the extra passengers from the delayed flight the plane still had a few empty seats and I was able to take an exit seat for extra legroom (I'm 6'5"), although I will still upgrade in future."
Cons: "On the flight out the plane was really warm, so this time I dressed on that basis, but the flight was really quite cold. I guess I'll have to figure out a changable set of cloths in future."

Pros: "The crew were helpful and friendly throughout, trying to find out what we should do about missed connections during the flight, I was able to move to an empty exit seat (I'm 6'5") so the delay was relatively comfortable."
Cons: "Well we were delayed for an hour and missed connection as a result, but you can't really blame the airline for that."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Food to be improved"

Pros: "Flight was good but my luggage case was broke the two wheels have been broke off make my case not useable as it has two holes were the wheels was"
Cons: "suit case was broke wen I was given it at ho chi ming city two big holes where the wheels was I have taken photos also"
