Cons: "AirChina did not offer us a plane for almost 3 days, so we stayed in a hotel in Beijing with minimal staff help for the entire period."

Pros: "At least they told us before I left for the airport"
Cons: "Had to take the train."

Pros: "Nothing to like really. It was a bad experience to begin with."
Cons: "The moment I cut my chicken open, I found a strand of hair intact between the meat and the skin. I'm it was the cooks hair. I absolutely lost my appetite and reported it. It was disgusting. No compensation was done."

Cons: "None"

Cons: "To other folks with asthmatic kids, a little word of caution re the air inside (repeat, inside) the BCIA terminal that Air China uses for its Beijing layovers. We could taste the outside air pollution's volatile solvents within the terminal, pretty bad near the gate. Our kid was using the Ventolin rescue inhaler every 10 min on the way over. That was an evening. On the way back we had taken the precaution of instituting a short-term oral prednisone course before (half to one mg/kg/day for two-three days beforehand, max fifty mg a day) and things went fine. The air seemed a lot better anyway, and it was early morning, fso probably more that than our precautions. Net, net, given the always present risks of very serious air pollution in Beijing, I'd suggest visitors with asthma take appropriate medical precautions before and during layovers there."

Cons: "Ticket agent was rude and unfriendly. Airline caters to group tours. Many of of passengers were loud and the stewards didn't care. Plane was dirty similar to a low two star hotel."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My girlfriend's name was messed up on the boarding pass. This caused us so many troubles with the security. On the confirmation email, the name was correct, but when we arrived at the airport, the name printed on the boarding pass was not like the confirmation email we got. We tried to call back to price line, no answer, bs automatic machine. Not fun at all"

Cons: "There is an one hour delay for both of my round trips with Air China. And the entertainment was very out of date! No bottled water was offered and I had to ask for cups of water again and again."

Pros: "Foods"

Pros: "Boarding was rather late but pretty prompt. However, we waited on the plane for about an hour before taking off. Also waited for 40 minutes to pick up the luggage."

Pros: "Fast, on time, personal entertainment,"
Cons: "seat not comfortable"

Cons: "1 hour delay from peking, but there no information."
