Pros: "The food was good. It was nice that they supply wet hot towels before each meal. The seat was comfortable with the price I paid for. The rest room is nice and clean and quite spacious. The L’occitane toiletery bag was nice."
Cons: "It would be nice to supply mouthwash in the rest room. It would be nice to have a foot step at the bottom to open the trash container. The comforter is not washed and smells."

Pros: "The price was absolutely amazing, dollars to miles it was the best bargain on a trip ever. Crew responded very quickly, and handled everything excellently."

Pros: "Ms. Liu/Chang is one of lovely cabin crew,bring me awesome smile and unforgettable nice experience"

Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Pros: "But very very far experience from Emirates or Qatar air to this part of the world."
Cons: "The veggie/vegan options were inedible overcooked plain veggies and an unflavored carbohydrate - thank god we brought some food. No entertainment system and the plane was definitely a decommissioned 757 from a 1990s 757."
Pros: "restroom lines were less due to limited choice of drinks which turned out positive specially when flight was full."
Cons: "Had to call agency for confirming seats as web was never successful despite many try's. Agency in Washington was v good and helped. on long haul flights the choice of entertainment is poor. food could have been better"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Nothing except low price"
Cons: "Poor food communication problem"
Pros: "Smiling staff very helpful, selection of entertainment for my 14 hour flight, piping hot towel hand delivered for refreshing self, beverage selection, pillow, blanket and slippers. all this in economy class."
Cons: "food selection (chicken and rice or shrimp and pasta, side salad, fruit salad, roll) is fair but quality could be better."
Pros: "They did not had our foods on both flights."
Pros: "The screen was fault."
Cons: "Entertainment screen is fault."
Cons: "Boarding Procedure was a bit of a mess; Lounge in newark is kinda mediocre."
Cons: "Seat too tight"
Cons: "TOO hot in the plane! No personalized air vents. Seats are not comfortable."
Cons: "The air China flight attendants are some of the rudest people I have encountered. They were extremely unhelpful and one went so far as to sigh and roll her eyes at me. Our flight was also delayed for four hours with no explanation, while we all sat on the plane waiting. Finally they made us all get off of the plane issued us new tickets and then we got back on. The whole process was rediculous. The seat space was smaller than usual and the plane was very dirty. It was also the worst airplane food I have ever tasted. I would definitely recommend not flying air China. K"
Cons: "Very unkind crew. They didnt seem to want to help the passengers. They appeared rather annoyed. The seats are too close from row to row. Undoubtedly the most uncomfortable airline seat ive sat in."
Cons: "since this portion of my flight was cancelled by air china they tried to book me on the next day but my husband decided to come meet me in beijing after getting me a hotel and driver to pick me up the night that i was stranded. i told air china not to book me on the flight the following morning that i wasn't going to take it. they never did that and ended up cancelling the entire remaining flights on air china. this was the worst experience with an airline i've ever experienced."
Cons: "they cancelled my flight connecting in beijing to shanghai. no reason this just happens all the time in china. they lost my luggage for hours. they didn't have another flight until the next day. and i was traveling alone meeting my husband in shanghai. so i was just stuck in beijing. they were incredibly unhelpful and unconcerned that i was alone with no luggage, without a phone that worked since i was getting a chinese sim from card from my husband in shanghai, no hotel, transportation etc."
Pros: "free local beer"
Cons: "worn out seats, the children playing games on the monitor in the back of my seat so i had to deal with back of my chair constantly moving. clearly frozen to microwave meal. Late departure on both of my flights with them but shockingly, on time arrival for both."
Pros: "Not much at all"
Cons: "Lack of communication - our flight was supposed to land in Beijing but we were redirected to another airport due to bad weather. After we had parked at the terminal of our temporary airport, we were told to wait further instructions from flight crew and the control tower. After about 40 minutes the plane started going towards the runway without any warning to passengers who had started getting luggage down, opened contents of carry on baggage and luggage, etc. It was jarring to say the least and luckily no one got hurt. Additionally, our flight from Beijing to Vancouver, BC was delayed by 8 hours. None of the gate or airport agents could tell us why or provide any alternatives to those of us with connecting flights. Not only did they not provide information, one of the gate agents gave us the wrong information (the local time at arrival). We missed our connecting flight and incurred significant expenses (hotel and purchase of 4 additional one way tickets). For the reasons listed above I will never chose air china and strongly urge any listeners/readers to avoid them at all costs!"
Cons: "I had a coonecting flight to Panama City -- the flight was delayed 1 hour and 30 minutes out of Beijing. I missed the connection flight. It was my son's graduation and no one did anything to help until AFTER I missed the flight."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Customer service was incredibly unprofessional."
Pros: "3-3-3 formation of seats with decent legroom. FAs tried to be helpful but if you only speak English language maybe a barrier."
Cons: "The flight wasn't even there at boarding time both ways, no announcement of delay or new boarding time. When we approached the desk, they said there us no delay, when we asked about why the flight isn't there yet, they said 'may be a little bit'. Then we sat in the plane and we queued up for take off but were in the tarmac for about 2 hours. Very little information came out on the PA or from the FAs."
Pros: "Everything worked, boarded quickly and crew served passengers efficiency. Luggage was already on the conveyor belt when I arrived."
Cons: "Flight did not exist, missed connecting flight"
Cons: "I could nos use my phone even though I took off the SIM card I did not get a good explanation"
Pros: "Crew members are very nice and kind"
Cons: "But it takes more just being nice to be a good service. I always flight business and occasionally first class within the Star Alliance system. I'm a Chinese and I love my people. By still keeping my Chinese citizenship after 27 years living in US may show that. But I have to say my dear Chinese crew members always miss some details on service. For instance, this time on my way back to JFK, they woke us up five hours before landing to serve us the light meal, that other Star Alliance airlines usually do around two hours ahead of landing. I took Air China four times in the past 10 months and they always did the same thing, even though I specifically requested that don't wake me up if I'm sleeping. They turned on the cabin lights and talked with passengers next to me very loud. I hope it's not the case that they serve the light meal so early in order to get their jobs done earlier ahead of landing. Other Star Alliance airlines never do this kind of thing."
Pros: "The flight was accepted by FlightNetworkbut never ticketed. I called and waited on hold for an hour with occasional talk to representative. She indicated that she would call me back in an hour. A ticketing agent called about an hour later and said the flight I booked was unavailable so they switched me to China Southern (where I have no status) but have status with Air China as Star Gold. In addition, they charged me an extra $330 US, so the good fare on Air Chain / Air New Zealand did not materialize. I am thoroughly disgusted with the process and FlightNetwork."

Pros: "The service was pretty good. I only had an hour to board my next flight, so flight attendants moved me up towards the front of the plane so that I could exit earlier than others. I was able to make it to my next flight."
Cons: "There was a 3-hour delay after all the passengers boarded. We were all sitting inside the plane without any explanation. At first, the captain blamed airport for not giving any updates on their departure, and a flight attendant that I talked to blamed the local temperature, which was a total nonsense. Later the captain announced that there was an issue with the engine. My layover was supposed to be 4.5 hours, but it got cut to 1 hour due to the unexpected delay that they had not clearly explained. I had to run to catch my next flight. When I got to my final destination, I found out Air China did not transfer my bag on time, so I had to file extra paper works in order to receive my bag two days later."
Pros: "Fair"
Pros: "entertainmanet was pretty good. crew was kind and give us enough pillows and blankets."
Cons: "around middle of flight, bathroom condition became too smelly and was difficult to use."
Pros: "nothing good"
Cons: "Crew's behavior was very rude to me, firstly they barly understand English and they lie to me by giving me non-vegetarian food and said it is vegetarian. When I resist and said I'll complaint against you guys so they took food and trashed it immediately without my permission."
