Cons: "Bad choice of movies, sub-par food, small bathrooms."
Cons: "Well, the aircraft doesn’t have TV at the back of each seat."
Pros: "Literally nothing. I guess the crew was nice. Sufficient at least and not unpleasant."
Cons: "Where to start. First off, I have flown budget air carriers with more leg room than this pacific international flight. I do admit I am a taller than average guy, but if you are over 6' tall you will have NO legroom. And I mean none. It is an insulting amount of legroom. My 5'6" wife barely had any room, never mind myself. On my flight back, I requested an emergency exit row seat (as I noticed on the flight over the emergency exit row was filled with old people and young couples with babies/ young children). And was informed it would cost $120 USD per flight per person. My jaw almost hit the floor. You mean to tell me that the emergency exit row - the row where in the case of an emergency you are supposed to physically be able to assist passengers - actually COSTS money to sit in? That is an absolute disgrace. You have to pay for the added responsibility to help in the case of an emergency? Of course, once I was on the flight the emergency exit row was filled with old people and babies. All of course perfectly capable of helping in the case of an emergency. I was, and still am furious. The gall to charge that much money and then give the responsibility to people unable to help? Meanwhile, an able-bodied couple in the 20s is denied and I am cramped in my less-than-acceptable-for-budget-airlines legroom. And the food. Putrid. Inedible. It was somehow overwhelmingly fragrant while far too bland. Its hard to imagine someone putting together that meal and feeling proud. The meals all screamed "I do not care about my customers." In fact, that is the overwhelming feeling I got from Air China. An airline that truly could not careless about their customers. I would not reccommend. Even if they are the cheapest by a far margin. Stay away. Do not go near. Air China is a terrible airline that should be avoided at all costs."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Flight delayed over 40 hours, in China! Nothing anyone can do about it. Totally got screwed by Air Gina. Almost missed the wedding I was officiating. Worse part is that Kayak has no customer service number to call for help. Never again. If that wasn't enough, they lost a bag on my return flight. Pay the extra money and get treated like a human being."
Cons: "80 minutes delay without explanation."
Pros: "Movies during flight. Had a smooth flight to Beijing. Pilot is very good"
Cons: "Change of gate number. A very long walk to the new gate number. Taking a crowded bus to board the plane. Seats are extremely small. My seat won't recline. Had contant back pain during the 12hr flight."
Pros: "When the flight delays, as least the crew need to tell the passengers when the flight will be fight or boarding."
Pros: "Worst flight ever. Delayed 2 hours on the front end. Food was horrible. Plane was freezing. Service awful. No information on the delays."
Pros: "The food was fine."
Cons: "The flight was two hours delayed, so I almost missed my next one--which was international."
Pros: "I like nothing about this airline."
Cons: "Flight was delay departing from LAX 3 hours, end up missing connection flight in Beijing, Airline doesn't care and expect me to wait at the airport for 12 hours for another flight.... No Food, No lounge, No words from the Airline and No responsibility from the Airline. Worst...To everyone else please pay more for other airline."
Cons: "Bad service"
Pros: "Price is good. And the airline service is also great."
Cons: "More delay from Beijing to Guangzhou."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Staff was grumpy and just looked like they hated their job Food was terrible All 4 flight legs were late Beijing airport feels like a luxury prison, no decent food options, no budget options for anything, only super overpriced boutiques."
Pros: "Gave me a free upgrade while I was flying alone."
Pros: "70% of the entertainment is in Chinese so be prepared with your own stuff. Food was not awful, but not great. Comfort and leg room above average."
Cons: "They serve the same food for both meals, and on all other flights. I got sick of chicken and rice, pork and rice, and noodles. The seats are the most uncomfortable I've dealt with on an international flight. And my luggage didn't make the connection for my Beijing-NY flight, so I had to deal with lost luggage after waiting at the baggage claim for a long time. Luckily, I live in NY and could have my luggage delivered later that night. Other people were not so lucky and were told FedEx would get it to them 4 days later. However, having said all that, I feel like you get what you pay for, and I got an incredible deal on this round-trip flight."
Cons: "Air china flight attendants are extremely rude. I don't know if they're over worked but they definitely aren't happy"
Pros: "Absolutly on time. Good check in, no trouble with luggage. Quick proceedings."
Cons: "Food made me sick for two days. And it was definitely the airline food. No entertainment for foreigners, flying standard of 2002."
Pros: "Flight and Crew were good but entertainment wan't as they had old selections in Entertainment."
Cons: "I had booked "Hindu-vegetarian" meal (it's completely different than Chinese Veg or other Veg) and they often had Chinese Veg in the flight. If they can't offer "Hindu-Vegetarian" then they should remove this option from their list of meal."
Cons: "They informed me 3 days in advance via email that my connecting flight is cancelled. No rebooking to other carrier, no hotel. They expected me to wait 24 hours in Beijing airport! Worst: had to try 4 times to call them till someone picked up, 3 times I gave up after 30 minutes (roaming). Very unfriendly handling of case."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment offered, and the hot jasmine tea was yummy."
Cons: "They did not give us enough water for a 12 hour flight. They only came around four times – once before the two meals and once after – and they only filled up the small cup about half way each time. I left the plane dehydrated after the first flight. On the return trip, I bought a bottle of water in the terminal to take on the plane, but they confiscated it at the gate. I've never had that happen before, especially since I bought it past security in the Beijing airport. Since they took it, I probably annoyed the flight attendants with how much I asked for water, but I didn't really care."
Cons: "Food to be improved"
Cons: "The flight crew seemed to be a bit racist. I'm American, they're all Chinese. They skipped me while serving food and beverage, skipped me while collecting garbage, and would not come when I asked for help. I finally was able to get some food when the kind man next to me noticed what was going on and spoke up about it. In contrast, 5!3 man on the other side of me kept elbowing me periodically throughout the flight, and placing his feet in front of my chair directly where mine should go. This was extremely annoying on a 13 hour flight. I will never fly with air china again."
Pros: "Entertainment and drink selection was decent. Plane was pretty new with large personal monitors and usb charger"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 3hours. Boarding process was a nightmare. there no was line, people were pushing and was almost like a herd of cows just trying to squeeze through the gate asap. Staff did not do anything about this and just watched. Food was terrible, my salad was defrosted which meand the vegetable was wet and soggy. Although the planes were new, the seats were verr narrow"
Pros: "Price was cheapest."
Cons: "No IFE. Restricted my use of my smartphone even though it was in Airline mode. Food lousy."
Pros: "Comfortable seat and attentive staff"
Cons: "4 hour long layover in Beijing got me into my final destination by 4:30am. Later I learned that it is very common to be delayed in Chinese domestic travel. I will try to not fly domestic in China again. Instead, get an international connection in somewhere like South Korea."
Cons: "Boarding. Service."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
