Cons: "Because the first flight was delayed, we had to run like mad men to our connecting flight or else we wouldve missed it."

Cons: "Because the first flight was delayed, we had to run like mad men to our connecting flight or else we wouldve missed it."
Pros: "Great crew and clean new plane"
Cons: "The food is a bit “unique” and entertainment options Movies are a bit outdated"
Pros: "Crew were very nice. Especially Pan (don't know his last name). Food was good, too. I appreciated having movies to watch from the screen on the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Too much turbulence! It was quite uncomfortable for a long time. There were not enough comforting announcements from the flight deck to explain it. Crew members need practice in pronouncing English, and louder. Crew volume was too low compared to captain. American movie selection was too limited."
Pros: "Professionalism of the staff. The whole process was smooth."
Cons: "Food. Tasted mediocre at best. It would be better if each economy seat had an electric outlet to plug in."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the food is simply awful... the lock to my luggage was removed and they didn't leave any notice of inspection"
Cons: "We missed the flight going to LA in Beijing because the airplane from Manila landed late, and we don't have assistance in the immigration, they don't speak English. They rebooked us with different seats, I have 2 child separated in my seats, not nice."
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: "arrived in Beijing and flight was delayed - unknown departure time. no English information available. waited 2 hours to get info"
Pros: "In general the flight was fine."
Cons: "When I made my reservation the time to make my connecting flight in Beijing to Dulles (IAD) was 2 hr. Air China shortened the delay to 1 hr. We arrived on time but did not get off the plane until 12:00. They began boarding our connecting flight at 12:15. My husband needed the use of a wheelchair and with the help of the airport staff member we RAN through immigration (flew in from Hong Kong), had to go through security a second time, lost my iPad at security due to our rapid departure. We got to the flight at 12:30 and made it just in time to board. Our luggage could not be transferred in time and arrived the next day. This is just too difficult for people of any age to do...my husband and I are both in our 70s."
Pros: "Clean inside,"
Cons: "Too short switching time, cause missing next flight when I went to China; when I am back to America, the flight canceled because of weather, nobody help change the ticket, not good service"
