|Top route||Beijing Capital to Chengdu|
Pros: Economy seats were actually pretty comfortable and the staff was very attentive.
Cons: The vegetarian food was basically unsalted, watery rice and fruit. By the third round of it (long flight w/ 2 dinners and 1 breakfast) I just didn’t eat it. The entertainment also advertises movies and shows that they don’t have. Small selection that could be better.
Pros: I liked getting to my destination safely.
Cons: The boarding process was chaos and when we finally boarded, the seats were extremely uncomfortable. There also wasn’t any choice of entertainment and the movie that was playing had no way to have audio (no headphone jacks to plug into)

Pros: Not much, but the crew were friendly
Cons: The airline was late in take off for some unknown reason (nothing to do with weather). Flight too be late and we missed out connecting flight.They demanded we purchase a new ticket for the next leg of the flight. Furthermore, then they cancelled the rest of the return flight. Terrible Airline

Cons: No wifi, no individual entertainment screens, no power. TV screens looked like an old VHS tape (static).
Pros: The crew and the food.
Cons: On time
Pros: The crew was good. The flight was quick and direct.
Cons: So they had a very quick food service then because of turbulence they closed the bathrooms and made everyone stay in their seats. I have 3 little kids and a wife with a small bladder. Over the course of 4 hours they need to use the bathroom sometime. My kids were literally crying because they had...
Pros: The staff in yangon were extremely helpful and understood my situation. However they were unable to do anything to rectify the issue.
Cons: The time between arrival and departure for the connection flight was too short. Flight was missed. I will make an official complaint. Why sell flight tickets with no time to transfer. Even before the flight, staff knew i would miss the flight. Still nothing could be done.
Cons: The time between arrival and departure for the connection flight was too short. Flight was missed. Will be making an official complaint. Why sell flight tickets with no time to transfer. Even before the flight, staff knew i would miss the flight. The sichuan airlines help desk just ignored me when i approached them with the missed flight document (in chinese) .Terrible! I had to book a hotel and another flight out of my own pocket for the airlines mistake.
love the direct flight
Pros: The direct flight is great! Especially traveling with kids.
Cons: The flight took 45 minutes longer than scheduled even though we departed on time. Also I have young children and they played some action movie with shooting and killing and It was hard to distract my kids from watching that.
Cons: I had to pack my laptop too much early - 15 minutes before we started descent. By other airlines it is possible to use it longer
Good flight but a bit cold
Pros: Good cabin staff.
Cons: A bit cold. - Not an airline problem, but often when a flight comes through a chinese airport late, they will have the transfer path closed so you have to go out as if you want to leave their airport. The immigration officers then want you to apply for visa's and its hard to communicate that you are just wanting to connect to another flight. Maybe they need a procedure for that when a flight comes in late and they have closed the connecting path.
Cons: Very friendly crew members.
Pros: The flight was smooth and the service personnel was nice and professional.
An okay airline
Pros: The crew was friendly and efficient. The check-in was smooth and they explained how to get to the gate location. The flight left on-time and arrived early.
Cons: The plane was very warm and the AC was either turned off or set to a high temperature. There was no cold drinks and no ice on the plane and drink service on the four hour flight was only immediately before and after dinner in a small cup. Bring something to drink with you. Entertainment was a Chinese movie on a small overhead screen with English subtitles that were too small to read. Unlike other flights on the same airline, we were not offered a choice of meals.
Pros: Good price and had entertainment and meals that were tasty.
Cons: Too cramped, not much on the television, seat did not go far back enough to sleep for a long flight.
Cons: The check in staff extremely rude and unprofessional. You can’t check your bag into your final destination You also must go thru immigration and customs in Chengdu
Pros: gate staff very helpful in assigning seats. flight smooth and flight staff competent. Choice of 3 meals in economy. Nonstop flight to our destination a plus.
Cons: Cannot select seat prior to flight.
Based in Chengdu, Sichuan Airlines focuses predominantly on domestic services within China as well as international routes to other East Asian countries. Support hubs in Chongqing and Kunming help ease the load of traffic through Chengdu. Codeshare agreements with carriers, such as Air China, China Southern Airlines, Tibet Airlines and Shanghai Airlines, have consolidated their ability to offer a wide range of departure times within Asia. The airline has steadily expanded its long-haul international flights and now reaches the United States, Australia, Canada, Turkey, Denmark, New Zealand and Egypt, among others.
Exclusively Airbus planes make up the fleet, with a wide variety of models catering to specific routes. The A350-900 is one of the largest aircraft flown and can take approximately 330 passengers on long-distance trips to places such as Russia and Italy. Narrow-body planes like the A320 and A321 families are preferred for shorter routes within Asia. You can check to see which model you are flying on as Sichuan Airlines labels them underneath the pilot windows.
The petrel bird that features in the airline’s logo is also on the tail of the fleet with a red background that runs across the fuselage. Many Sichuan Airlines aircraft have special details, including a Panda decoration and Chinese Dragon livery.
In the Economy cabin seats are configured in a 3 x 3 x 3 arrangement, while the Business Class section has angled cabins that provide plenty of privacy. Passengers in both classes are offered chili sauce as a condiment with meals, while sweet buns are served to compliment your tea or coffee.
