Pros: "The food!! The flight was in time and also the flight attendant were so available and caring"
Cons: "I have wifi in board for an hour for whatsapp messaging I would have beloved to have it all flight"
Pros: "The crew were fantastic! The one meal from Athens to Cairo was excellent, the other two meals weren’t too bad but not as good as the first one."
Cons: "The security in Cairo was really a joke."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and caused me to miss my connecting flight on another airline that had no other flights that day. As a result of the lack of communication and general lack of professionalism, staff refused to rectify the situation and take responsibility, and I was forced to stay overnight. Worst"
Pros: "They an amazing crew"
Cons: "They need to improve on the flight check-in and boarding at thier airport in Bole, it is so messy. Also thier inflight menu is nothing special"
Pros: "Crew was really great - helpful and kind."
Cons: "Both flights delayed which meant I missed my connecting flight. Stuck in Rome airport for several hours with no information about rescheduled flight. Finally figured it out with help of Rome airport information desk."
Pros: "The food was good, seats were quite comfortable and the crew was awesome"
Cons: "The entertainment was not that great"
Cons: "Unsufficent information about boarding ..I missed my flight I will never use this service again ... complete waste of time"
Cons: "The most unprofessional ground staff I have met coupled with the most disorganised airport"
Cons: "Flight attendants where bothered to serve us beer, water or any other snack during he flight. I had to beg in both occasions to have my tray taken from my seat."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and friendly. They provided a hotel, meals, and transportation on a long layover."
Cons: "Transportation from the aircraft to terminals."
Cons: "Seats are narrow, leg room limited, and food is minimal."
Pros: "Professionalism of the crew."
Cons: "My partner and I could not understand much of what flight attendants said in English due to their accent. Mediocre food. When the person in front came back, his seat leaned back and hit my laptop. I felt ignored once when a flight attendant appeared to have asked in Chinese if I need any drink."
Pros: "The crew this time was outstanding! Also, the food improved much from last time."
Cons: "My entertainment screen did not work."
Cons: "The plane was COLD. The food was absolutely disgusting! The seats are small. Lacking in the movie department. I will not use Air China again."
Pros: "Exceptionally, there was an audio on this flight! I enjoyed movies very much! Also the chicken lunch there was delicious."
Cons: "For my return flight, I expected the same, but in vain."
Cons: "No aisle seats cos I couldn't check in online."
Pros: "Boarding was quick & efficient."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable and food was not the best but for the money, it is what you would expect."
Pros: "Good food, relatively comfortable for a 13 hour flight"
Cons: "The entertainment system was modern, but not that many good, English-language movie or TV options. I found it difficult to get wine and black tea (they served green) - both of which are essentials for a long-haul flight. Flight was a little late. The security lines for transfers at the Beijing airport is a complete mess, which was the most stressful part of the trip."
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."
Pros: "Bargain price for a RT flight to Bangkok, good movies at a personal video device at the seat. Two ok meals on 14 hour flight to Beijing."
Cons: "Only one choice for red wine and it was pretty bad."
