Everybody does'nt know what to do. No one can exactly give us the way and right thing to do. No anwers to our questions. We were hungry and no way of getting in touch with our family members because airport wifi does'nt work for us. We were ask to go here and there without explanation and the hotel given does'nt deserve to.be even a 1star..a better than nothing hotel. Tired, hungry and very exhausted . No words can describe our frustrations. We deserve a refund if not at least a compensation for that very bad service experienced on that flight of Air China 880."
Cons: "No updates on reason for 2hr delay of flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew"

Cons: "FLIGHT DELAY FROM USA TO BEIJING AND BEIJING TO HCM."
Pros: "The style of the pillows and blankets were nice. The pillows were really comfortable and a good size. The taste of the food was okay. I honestly expected a horrible experience, it was not fantastic but it was better than what I anticipated."
Cons: "The sealed blanket had white hair as if from an older person. Although I liked the pillow, on my return flight I used it to sleep, I used it for my back the entire time going, when I got home I noticed I was developing a sty on my eyelid. My companions noticed that the sometimes when he received his food it was still cold in some parts. On my return flight there were a few times my row was skipped for drinks. On my return flight the stewardess seemed hesitant when I asked for an additional drink. I ordered tea and asked for water. The gate agent in Beijing was extremely rude and unhelpful, she ignored us and even tossed our ticket back at us when we tried to ask about our seats for the flight."
Pros: "Crews were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Food was edible but horrible! It makes me doubt this country’s 5000-year history of cuisines."
Pros: "A completely packed plane on a 14 hour flight from Beijing to NYC, freezing cold. I was too exhausted to eat my second meal. The flight attendants were great, but i"ll avoid flying Air China in the future."
Pros: "I think the food served on the flight has improved significantly over the last few years. I've been flying Air China for the past few years and am very impressed by the progress made by Air China. I will continue to be a loyal customer of this airline. Thanks!"
Cons: "this long flight was made much more difficult by the 10 hour layover in cold airport 11F outside while we had no cold weather clothes (since we were in 90F Thailand previous). We should have had short layover but flight got cancelled and terrible rebooking had us waiting 10 hours in middle of our trip at Beijing. The food on the flight was poor and the crew never came around to offer water."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "They didn't have any vegetarian meals available. All I could eat was a roll & a few pieces of fruit. Even the salad had meat/fish on it. And the flight was delayed by 3 hours which ruined our plans during our layover."
Pros: "Seats are pretty standard, and they do give you snacks even though the flight's less than 2 hours."
Cons: "As usual, delayed."
Cons: "Movies were old"
Cons: "looks like I have flea bites all over my back and legs. TV did not work, there was something underneath the seat that was part of the plane could not put my feet underneath the seat very well, cannot communicate well with crew although they tried could not understand any announcements in English"
Pros: "Almost all of the crew were nice"
Cons: "TV broken pocket that held reading material was ripped and had wire sticking out, crew was friendly"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "Travel was very smooth and easy. But the ticket agent neglected to tell us we had to go to a special transit visa desk before exiting through customs. We thought the paperwork we filled out at the ticket agent desk was sufficient."
Cons: "Well, the aircraft doesn’t have TV at the back of each seat."
Pros: "Complimentary Movies with headphones provided were a plus. This was my transfer flight with AirChina they were not too happy about me being a vegetarian. Meals were provided. If you are not vegetarian or find out how to put your name on a special request sheet it should go smooth."
Cons: "Seats were very narrow and seat by window wouldn't recline like other window seats for both flights. (No I was not by the exit.) I am a vegetarian. And asked for no meat during meals provided. They didn't have my name in a special request list. The crew member did know how I would be asked to be put on the list and was rude when I told her I was a vegetarian even when I informed multiple crew members during my boarding since I had an issue the previous flight. The crew members in that flight were very rude even when I told them during boarding and a crew member came across with the special request sheet. Still no one could tell me how to put my name down as a special request to avoid any further confusion"
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: "There was a lot of food"
Cons: "There were no vegetarian options"
Cons: "There was no entertainment system."
Cons: "80 minutes delay without explanation."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and the airline was not empathetic or helpful."
Pros: "When the flight delays, as least the crew need to tell the passengers when the flight will be fight or boarding."
Cons: "Old plane with minimal entertainment. Late arrival and my bag did not make my connecting flight."

Cons: "Flight delayed for 2 hrs , saw the pilot coming after 2 hrs , why were the customers not informed"
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"
Cons: "When I received my laguages after 2 days from the airport my stuffs were missing. Who'll be responsible for this ???????? Highly disappointed with the service by air China. We spent our money to travel in your airlines. We gain noting lose our time , things which were in the laguage , plans got ruined. I'm sorry to say this I'm never ever gonna choose air China or never gonna recommend air China to my family and friends. Disappointed with air China!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Surprised they offered a full meal on a short regional flight! And they had special meal offerings."
