Everything was good except the cold inside the flight . Cabin crews were very polite and helpful
I liked the service of the crew and the chk in staff. Crew should insist on putting the mask for the passengers.
Fare difference was really bad almost double than my regular fare never fly again
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "nothing stands out to be improved"
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Cons: "The seat were not adjustable and the snake were poor and no entertainment on board ... poor boarding with buses and arrived with buses"
Pros: "Efficient airline, friendly staff."
Cons: "Can't blame the airline but getting through terminals is time consuming in Abu Dhabi. Seats are small and hard but I felt excellent value for money."
Cons: "The airplane broke from Abudabi to Delhi with 4 hrs delay."
Cons: "More cabin staff only 3 attendants for a packed flight Long wait for another plane to land so people could get on Late landing Generally uncomfortable due to full plane and inconsiderate people May not use again"
Pros: "Both planes had USB ports for charging phones. Food was better this time."
Cons: "Space for seats not enough at all. I know its economy but still...It was very expensive to pay extra to get the extra leg room for Abu Dhabi to Washington flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "- Very noisy and old airplane - Since it's old, the legroom in economy was poor and the business class was looking like it was built in the 80s. It was really cramped even in the business class - If you bring your own headphones, make sure they're noise cancelling since it's noisy on the plane - And if you bring your own headphones, you need those old 2 pin style connectors as well. The ones that Ethiad give you are super low quality. - Screen resolution on those screens is really bad, you can view every pixel on the screen and brightness doesn't go all the way up either."
Pros: "Food was great ."
Cons: "My chair was not comfortable."
Pros: "SERVICE VERY GOOD"
Cons: "FOOD NO GOOD AT ALL"

Pros: "Absolutely LOVELY crew. I'm a frequent flyer and my journey from Bangkok to Abu Dhabi was amazing. Thank you! Everything was very good with except for the screen: on both planes, it didn't work but it was exceptional in experience. We got 5000 miles as a compensation.."
Cons: "The screen /server didn't work, but it was exceptional in experience."
Pros: "Crew were awesome, food was amazing"
Cons: "Abysmal experience on our return flight! # Abu Dhabi Airport is so outdated and an embarassment compared to the other Regional Airports # Boarding procedure still shambolic # A330 seems old and uncomfortable - even though it is a new plane # Cabin Crew so unfriendly and sour # Toilets again disgusting within 30 minutes after taking off # Food still shockingly disgusting # Onboard entertainment still inferior to Emirates/Qatar/etc."
Pros: "timeliness, in-flight entertainment, food"
Cons: "Great staff"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable at all to narrow and short distance you can not eat or set or sleep"
Cons: "Food and it was too cold aircobdition"
Cons: "Chai ☕️ should be good"
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Cons: "Food could have been spaced out more evenly during the flight. First meal came out like 3 or 4 hours into the flight, second meal came out like 8 or 9 hours after that"
Cons: "Baggage ground staff behavior is very bad..Not allowed me to carry stuff which I purchased inside the airport..will never travel and will also request my company not to buy tickets through Eithad"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Seating is tight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the next connecting flight was missed"
Cons: "So tight and noise , and i think this kind of chairs not comfortable for long distances, mean while other airline's can provide me the same price maybe little bit more but comfortable and better amenities"
Cons: "The food was lacking. Even though it's a short flight they could have offered more than a muffin and a yogurt."
Pros: "Selection of movie and TV shows could have been better"
Cons: "Selection of movies could be better"
Pros: "The flight was on time & the ground crew was courteous."
Cons: "The food was just not appealing ,palak paneer barely had any paneer in it and the sandwich for snack was dry.when I wanted to use the bathroom there was a big puddle on the floor ,I asked the stewardess if it can be cleaned, she decided to bring 5-6 half empty coffee pots to the bathroom & proceeded to dump them in the toilet,after she was done with the dumping procedure she came back with gloves & some cleaner & shut the door to clean up the mess , after she came out I thanked her but she just glared back at me even though I had not left that mess there,I don't think I would be flying Etihad again."
Pros: "1. Consider improving vegetarians food options. Particularly from Chicago to Abu Dhabi & Abh Dhabi to Chennai was unsatisfactory. Jet airlines also served horrible vegetarian food between Chennai and Abu Dhabi 2. Excessive connection times at Abu Dhabi & also in Chicago/New York. Consider reasonable connecting times (3-4 hours). 3. Relatively long time for check in"
Cons: "Never got here! First foight never left."
Pros: "A380 planes. What is not to like. Wide economy seats. A little glitchy entertainment system but over all comfortable flight."
Cons: "Horrible and disorganized service crew. Went without food for 2 of three service seasons as they forgot a whole section to service. Had to repeatedly ask and in one case finally got something to eat 40 mins later. Poor sequence of beverage and food service."
Pros: "Flight attendant manager is particularly friendly courteous and professional. I felt my obligation to mention that to the airline company."
Cons: "Seat is not very comfortable. One of the passengers kept window shutter open throughout the flight. Wish they insisted to close so passengers can sleep. A baby was crying for a long time but what can you do?"
Pros: "I was more than pleasantly surprised by the level of service, comfort and food on this flight. I typically dread these long haul flights, but this was actually a pleasant experience. The fold flat seats are comfortable and roomy, the food and meal service, when you want it is convenient if you wish to dine on your schedule, not the airlines and the general high level and friendly service was much appreciated. The "lounge" space they have between the first and business class cabins is fantastic; its a small bar like area where you can get out of your seat and chat with other passengers, watch news, read or whatever, and not be confined to your seat. Overall a great experience, Arrived having slept, eat and drank well."
Pros: "The staff for our flight were all extremely friendly and accommodating.When I checked in the airline attendant switched me to a window seat which was very considerate. Flight attendants came through the cabin several times with drinks and snacks and ensured we had the most comfortable flight possible. I thought the entertainment choices were excellent and really provided a wide array of genres and a unique multicultural assortment. Meals were very good, served in generous portions, and having a vegetarian diet I was happy to be so easily accommodated."
Cons: "We missed the flight to porto alegre because we went to bali and the flight from asia air delayed 8am. We tried to change the flight in every way, but we could not. We had to buy a new ticket for another company. We are sad and disappointed"
Pros: "Staff was good, business class lounge was nice. Ground crew was very good."
Cons: "Business class seat not nearly as nice as Singapore Airlines. Food was good, limited options. The entertainment options were good, not great. On flight to India, there was onboard wifi and live news (CNN, etc). On flight back, there was not onboard wifi and live news coverage."
Pros: "Boarding service at the airports was the only good thing. The staff was good and courteous."
Cons: "Entertainment and food was mediocre."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"
Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."
Pros: "flat beds"
Cons: "recliner seats in buisnes class plane between pakistan and abudahbi"
Pros: "Travel bag (with toothpaste, socks, etc) was given."
Cons: "2. Food choices from Abu Dhabi to Bangkok was Szechwan (spicy chicken), Indian (fish), or vegetarian pasta; no international or Thai food. 2. Entertainment was stopped 30 minutes before arrival."
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "The check-in cashier was very rude. maybe she should retake the course in hospitality. Again, it was operates by AA so what should I expect?"
Pros: "Ethihad portion of flight was very good, as usual. The flight crew on this particular leg was particularly outstanding, especially with their extra attention to our children."
Pros: "I booked my business flight through kayak, but looks like kayak is using Flyus.com who’s has a nasty customer service. Even requesting meals cost money. Air China can’t do anything with my flight and are sending me to the kayak.com. I will never again book through kayak and will be reporting this"
Cons: "Don’t sell services through Flyus.com."
Pros: "Cheap price."
Cons: "The food was not great. No USB charger. The other passengers were noisy."
Pros: "Cheap price."
Cons: "The food was not great. No USB chargers. Other passengers were noisy."
Pros: "The Air China crew was exceptional. They made sure wheelchair service was available all of the time without a hitch. They were very compassionate"
Cons: "The coach seating is very tight. I wish there was more leg room."
Pros: "The crew in business class was amazing, aircraft was not as new as the first flight but comfortable. No complaints."
Cons: "Again, I feel the meals are not as good as some other airlines but it was an amazing value for the business class flight so I can see past the meal. Staff was great,"
Pros: "Food Problem !!"
Cons: "Worst Food"
Pros: "Pretty much on time. Normal professional and reliable flight by Air China crew. Tracking the flight on video is very much appreciated."
Cons: "Poor selection of movies. The usual choice of beef and fish. How about a more creative dish such as pasta?"
Cons: "Very angry at being left off previous flight. No help from Air China. No one around to assist transferring travelers. Does not appear that the carrier bearing the name of China cares about customer service."
Pros: "Cabin crew were kind us but service details are poor very much."
Cons: "We were very bored during fight from JFK to PEK."
Pros: "Kayak messages about the gate number, delay, and so on all went into my spam folder and found them later after the flight"
Pros: "Crew was very, very attentive, food was really good, entertainment system was great. Will definitely fly Air China again, especially on their 777"
Pros: "It took me home."
Cons: "Mediocre food, obnoxiously long boarding and decent process, dated plane, limited leg room compared to competitor flights, apathetic attitude of staff and depressing mood on board."
Cons: "No updates on reason for 2hr delay of flight."
Pros: "The premium economy was a bit better, but still on a service level was very poor hospitality."
Cons: "The online service was not user friendly and slow. Our upgrade was said at departure it would be for the full flight and was Not. The staff would not speak English and refused to serve any drinks or snacks as I thought it would be normal. Our luggage was lost and did not arrive at our final destination til 2 days later. On the flight home we were told to wait till our transfer to upgrade and that was denied and said we needed to do it prior. I am beyond disappointed and will never fly with Air China again and the only recourse that was given was from the nice people in Japan that explained this happens all the time and provided a voucher for less than 100 US dollars. I will advise anyone in the future not to fly this airline and I would like this to be investigated."
Pros: "I like the food. The trip overall very nice"
Cons: "Nothing I don’t like. So far we’ll regarded except in China they don’t speak good English"
Pros: "The aircraft crew was polite"
Cons: "The connecting flight left me. Had to stay in China for a day. Mumbai airport didn't communicate with airlines in China"
Cons: "no wifi entire flight! stuff force you to turn off device after take off, even phone in airplane mode and self entertaining and playing cards not allowed. very bad english makes comunication hard and almost impossible order food or drink... they just bring watever and arguing about results in ( sorry no engliss). film selection horrible, old movies and 90% chinese. flight attendand skipped warm food after salad. only after reminding food was given! 0 requests after take off or during food if want any drink. you need literally flag down attendant to get your drink. if ordered tea, attendant asking you milk and sugar, you respond yes, you get then only tea no sugar or milk. after that nobody comes! accent were made to chinise pasdengers, more food or snaks were given or more comfort provided."
Cons: "EVERYTHING else"
Pros: "Crew is rude. No English spoken."
Cons: "Shutting off electronics 45 minutes before you land is ridiculous."
Pros: "Bathrooms were clean. Foot rests were comfortable."
Cons: "Chairs did not recline much for such a long flight."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and helpful, meals were adequate with drinks and snacks available between meals."
Cons: "The interior of the plane could use a facelift, the seats were well worn and stained. The movie selection was limited with more than half the choices in Chinese with subtitles too small to read on the tiny seat back screen. Also the headphone jack did not fit properly so I had to constantly hold it in place. Bathrooms were not well maintained."
Pros: "The flight waited which I'm sure is a complaint by others. This is due to the very inefficient transfer process in Beijing."
Cons: "Zero entertainment. I know it's only a 4-5 hour flight but still."
Cons: "they should really do something about tight connections. If your first airline is only barely late, it becomes a frantic haste from hell to get thru security again and to your next airline. Security needs to inspect every element of your carryon in spite of the fact you were already screened on your previous flight. They will dump out your entire bag to inspect all contents. Extremely easy to lose important things. They confiscate all spare batteries if they only appear to be high power range regardless of what the actual voltage is."
Cons: "This was like flying in the 90's. The seats were super small and uncomfortable my TV didn't work and they wouldn't let me use my phone (even on fly mode) and the Beijing international airport didn't have WiFi."
Cons: "My main large suitcase did not make the transfer; plane was late arriving Bejing"
Cons: "Food was terrible. Drinks are served room temperature without ice. Staff was rude. Tried multiple different televisions that barely worked. They will not let you have your phone on even on airplane mode for music or games, etc. Would not take again."
Pros: "Friendly staff on flight. Low cost business class ticket."
Cons: "Lost luggage needed for meetings, takes three days to recover. Coffee is gross, 3in1 powder. Only one water bottle on flight so I got dehydrated. Food is gross."
Cons: "The international flight delayed 30 min, so will miss the 4pm connected flight, but air china didn’t put us in the connected flight right after the 4pm flight, which was the 6pm flight, instead they assigned us to the 8pm one and made the overall delay 4 hours. This is not nice."
Cons: "Food was bland. Flight attendants are extremely rude."
Cons: "they lost our baggage"
Pros: "Very courteous behaviour"
Cons: "While the experience of flight was excellent, the missed flight to SFO led to severe inconvenience.The bus arranged for hotel was delayed,all heavy luggage had to be carried inside bus leading to hardship and severe personal strain as the did not have the capacity to accommodate all luggage. The extreme strain caused lasted during flight to SFO. It is suggested that due care needs to be taken of elderly, passenger with children etc.pl avoid such traumatic experience of such transits. Except for this rest of the experience was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but there was no announcement of reason nor was the new boarding time posted so everyone was forced to just stand by boarding gate and wonder. The food was dreadful and the portions were skimpy. The major food groups were white bread and white rice. The entertainment console was supposed to operate by touch but was unresponsive. The movies were 90 percent Chinese. I won't fly Air China again."
Cons: "Long delays zero communication to passengers."
Cons: "first flight to China was delayed so the connecting flight to Tokyo was missed. no explanation was given for the delay no food vouchers were available that night they lost my bag in china for 3 hours they brought me to hotel in unmarked bus with no explanation hotel told me that air china would only cover half the cost so I need to pay more or share a room the next day, air china's manager was uninterested in helping or explaining there hotel arrangements food on the last flight was just rice gruel and an aged egg. I am flexible but that's not even considered a meal in china. there is at least salt or pickled things in it. audio ports on plane did not work properly. on arriving home, most of the items in my suit case were crushed (coat hangers snapped, boxes crushed, bags ripped open) my dslr camera batteries were all taken (alkaline based ones) I travel between japan and america two or three times a year for the last 30 years. this last trip was one for the books! not sure where to start"
Pros: "Nice stewardesses"
Cons: "Can't use cellphone in airplane mode! Should have been warning about this. 2 hour delay with no explanation"
Pros: "the airfare itself is cheaper compared to other airline"
Cons: "the flightwas delayed for hours"
Pros: "Hate flying in and out of Beijing! The flights are always late!"
Pros: "Clean plane delay"
Pros: "GOOD ATTITUDE"
Cons: "my stuff in the checked luggage was missing, obviously somebody took it from my luggage, also, my luggage bag was broken due to the rudeness of staff. very very disappointed."
Pros: "I like Eva air better. This was ok, but Eva keeps the bathroom in tip top shape. Air China doesn't seem to keep cleaning the restroom throughout the flight. They seem to run late too which is fine because customs in beijing is slow. Plenty of food, no complaints there."
Pros: "one flight the attendant thanked me for being gold The agents at red house for gold members in Shenzhen were amazingly helpful in getting me a flight in time to connect when mine was badly delayed, really helpful"
Cons: "So many delays without a notification."
Pros: "Everything worked, boarded quickly and crew served passengers efficiency. Luggage was already on the conveyor belt when I arrived."
Pros: "Good staff."
Cons: "Seats are tight if two large people are sitting next to each other. HAd to wait a long time to check in. Function of airport though."
Pros: "Hard to find anything that was worth mentioning as outstanding - boarding happened without any hickup and food was average/good."
Cons: "TV screen did not work - 15 hour plus flight, it is a big no-no! Crew not very helpful - language barrier very huge and almost impossible to understand "English" used by crew and on intercom. example: Ladies and gentlemen - sounds like "fishermen" We are taxying towards the runway - came out as ... "we are taxying the wong way" - thankfully we ended on the right runway."
Pros: "The food and service were good. Nice and spacious aircraft. Excellent aircondition system."
Cons: "Delayed flight cause the bird went inside the plane"
Pros: "Stuff was friendly and provide newspaper in English. The food was good and served promptly. The flight departs and arrived on time."
Cons: "We were not be able to find our luggage on carousal. Because we spent a lot of time to get through passport control it was servicing other airline. The place to ask the question about the luggage has been closed. Finally in almost 2 hours with help of baggage floor service man we found it with some others people luggage."
Pros: "I got to USA! After 14 yrs overseas!"
Cons: "The crew was out there in space! I have to bring to her attention twice after serving a meal to the middle and aile passenger!!! At least! Pls! Can u smile! I feel that I was not welcome to the flight!!!"
Pros: "I like the small screens for tv, games, and movies."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, bad food, and way too many interruptions about turbulence. They could have just said this once, but they would repeat the message in Mandarin and English 3 or 4 times in the span of 5 minutes. We get it. Just say, "Please stay seated" and leave it alone"
Pros: "Was pretty cheap. That's about it."
Cons: "Forgot preordered special meal requests. Not enough water served; was super dehydrated after the 10 hour flight."
