Excellent JAL!!

Pros: "The flight attendants are the most professional and attentive employees I've ever had the pleasure to be served by."
Cons: "The movie selection could have been much better for such a long flight."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, the food was delicious and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "Boarding was awful. The staff definitely need better training at adapting with the Covid 19 situation. Especially, when it comes to unexpected occurrences regarding test certificates and sudden new regulations. Not everything is always black and white and not everyone has the same capacity to afford rebooking flights or re-testing. Treatment of foreigners in general at the LAX airport, on my flight at least, were unprofessional and inconsiderate. I generally like flying with Japan Airlines but after what I have seen and experienced personally I’m not so sure it is still one of my number one airlines to fly with anymore."
Pros: "Seat super comfy"
Cons: "All okay"
Pros: "friendliness"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "The chairs were just a little uncomfortable, too firm, but everything else made up for it."

Cons: "Delayed for an hour while already boarded"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Pros: "Sitting in my seat I felt that I had wiggle room for my feet and my arms/elbows. Usually on American flights, I feel like a sardine packed in a can. Even though I was in economy I had plenty of space and was very comfortable during 9 hour flight from BKK to Tokyo."
Pros: "JAL made travelling with a toddler easy and the flight attendants were incredibly helpful and courteous."
Pros: "I was fed two meals and snacks/drinks in between for a 14 hour flight. Love the little TV in front of the seat and the blanket and pillow. Crew was very sweet. Overall positive and good first international flight. Would choose Japan Airlines again! <3"
Cons: "Only a little hard to sleep upright in economy class seat. I wasn't able to fall fully asleep."
Pros: "Friendly and attentive staff with excellent amenities ie: check in, seat space, food quality, movies to watch, music, ...etc."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about here. Both trips to Tokyo, Japan--to and from Japan have been enjoyable and drama free."
Pros: "Crew members on board were very attentive and offered the best service in the most polite manner. Food was great. Great options and portion for lunch. Well respected brand for ice cream was served as dessert. A wide variety of overnight snack was provided for passenger's own selection. Breakfast was great with variety of food on the tray. Personal screen was modern and provided a great variety to keep me entertain during the very long flight. Seats are unexpectedly big and very comfortable together with functional well designed pockets beside the screen, where I could put my personal items. New and clean cabin."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff on JAL every trip"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable enough"

Pros: "Very clean and modern aircraft. Staff were friendly and attentive. They provided directions and a guide for travelers transitioning from domestic to international flights. Strongly recommend Japan Airlines."
Cons: "Nothing, well done."
Cons: "You mean the flight that never happened? The one that was suppose to fly out at 12:50 on 1/6/18 delayed until 17:25 (with acceptable communication the first delay) but then later delayed till 00:10 after I’ve already arrived at the airport early for the 17:25 departure. The screens with arrivals and departures posted that Checkin was open but there was no JAL staff to answer questions. Then getting an update “maybe” the 00:10 flight is cancelled? What is maybe cancelled and JALs phone messege still said the flight would depart at 00:10. So I go back to JFK because after all “maybe” isnt a definitive and according to all the direct JAL sources the flight is suppose to depart, I get to JFK the second time only to be given a printout saying the flight is cancelled with no rebooking, and to call for assistance. The same number is been calling for hours trying to get answers. coukdnt reschedules because I’m calling outside of business hours! I spent $200 on cab rides going back and forth to JFK to go nowhere, get no apology, no new flight booking, and no reimbursement for transportation."
Pros: "Amazing service and amazing food! For such a long flight I was extremely comfortable! Loved that the crew members kept me informed since I was spotty with Japanese they were very good!"

Pros: "Good quality food. Between-meal snacks. Great selection of media entertainment. Convenient power available at each seat including USB right in front of you. Many handy pockets in front of you for storing various items."
Cons: "Little surprised that the attendants were a little difficult to understand in English. I imagined their English would be pretty good."
Cons: "This is a kayak feedback - I thought I bought a cathay/jal flight. Well I was out of luck when I tried to fix situation. Broker in between introduce by website made it impossible to rebook flight in practice. Those website are very practical to look for flights but unless they give you the company direct you are better off switching to company site and book it there. Broker not equipped to be of any help."
Pros: "I liked the overall service and professionalism."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was limited, it was an older system I assume as the screen was not touchscreen."
Pros: "The majority of the crew had facials that made me feel like I shouldn't talk to them. The food wasn't the best but that was expected. There was movies and shows that kept me entertained for a while. Seats are normal couldn't walk or get up often because of turbulence."
Pros: "super comfortable seats, great food, huge monitor, non stop service for the 13 hours plus JFK-hnd new flight"
Cons: "Aisle seats not very private, remote control not intuitive to use"
Pros: "Plane was not sold out, I was able to have the roll with my girlfriend. All flights should be like this."
Cons: "They made me pay for a seat that they gave to other people for free. Really messed up."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding. Using two doors and a twin aisle plane made boarding very efficient despite the size of the plane and the number of people. Free WiFi worked surprisingly well - I was able to make a video call to my family. The plane was clean and tidy . Not really much more to say as it was a very short flight."
Cons: "No food offered, not even a biscuit, only very basic drink selection."
Pros: "The flight was long, but good. I was able to upgrade to better seats for only $100 which made the long flight more comfortable. AA customer service on the flight was very good."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable, the staff were friendly"

Cons: "the confusion of having one company selling another's tickets makes finding the gate difficult."
Pros: "Service and polite staff."
Cons: "Not much space between the seats for my long legs."
Pros: "The crew were the nicest group of flight attendants I have ever encountered. The offered assortment of snack during my flight. I got a scented warm hand towel before they service me a meal. They even use real silverware in economy"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was the temperature of the plane. It was quite hot (felt like 75 degrees inside)"
Pros: "Very attentive service, very comfortable seats on economy, good food, excellent attention to detail"
Cons: "Some turbulence awoke us midway through the overnight flight."
Cons: "too little legroom seating is designed shorter legged Japanese"

Pros: "Crew was great, flight was great."
Cons: "Not Delayed My Luggage."
Pros: "This was my first time flying with China Eastern and I was very impressed. The plane was clean and comfortable. The crew was nice and it was overall a great experience. I would fly them again and recommend them to others."
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Very impressive aircraft. Efficient crew."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Cons: "More leg room and better cushioned seats"
Cons: "staffs are rude, unfriendly"
Pros: "The crew was great. Very attentive and super friendly."
Cons: "Value flight so no luxuries. Wifi doesn't work, USB port was broken... Got us where we were going for a great price though."
Cons: "Bad food, have been throwing up, feel exhausted, unfriendly staff, not happy at all. Don’t Recommend"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding process, no complicated line system. Crew works expediently. The screens are large (though the selection of recent films is somewhat poor) and honestly I thought it was more spacious than international flights usually are in economy. Good news is I was able to sleep. I thought food was fine but the Americans next to me clearly weren't familiar with airline food or Chinese food generally..."
Cons: "Crew is kind of brusque and utilitarian, not a ton of hospitality in coach. They will make sure you follow directions (i.e. take your headphones off during safety instructions, put your phones away during take off, open/shut the windows at the exact right times). Small trade offs for the value you are getting..."
Pros: "The China Eastern Airlines website is always down. It was impossible although we had seat numbers, they changed our seats numbers and we all had to seat separated, including our 12 years old daughter."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Wait on the airplane after arrival."
Cons: "Flew from NY to Shanghai, had a 6 hour layover, then boarded my flight to Tokyo. China Eastern left my luggage behind in Shanghai, along with everyone else who was also on the NY>Shanghai flight. I do not understand how this happened, since the layover was 6 hours!! The layover was exhausting after a 14 hour flight, and then to arrive in Tokyo with no luggage made it even more tiring. The airline offered no compensation. Thankfully JAL was responsible with helping me once in Tokyo and they facilitated the delivery of the luggage to my hotel- in the middle of the night. It was inconvenient and disappointing after 24+ hours of travel. Not to mention - food was absolutely terrible. And headphone quality was no good for watching any of the films."
Cons: "just that the fight was late. otherwise, i would rank between ok and good (short flight). i have flown longer on china eastern on other occasions and in those cases, i would rank between good and excellent."
Cons: "Food is too sweet ..no salt."
Pros: "They kept us fed and we left on time! I had a bag lost at the beginning of my trip and had it sent back to JFK so it didn't follow me around China and I got it safe and sound."
Pros: "Boarding was instant. The plane wasn't full, so many people moved seats and sat comfortably. The plane was modern, with comfortable seats, and tv screens on the seats."
Cons: "The only minor drawback was the food wasn't awesome. But good flight anyway."
Pros: "Good seat layout with plenty of room"
Cons: "No entertainment on aircraft but low price."
Cons: "No veg meal"
Pros: "very comfortable seat in business class excellent food"
Cons: "China Eastern prohibits use of cell phones to access wifi during the flight"
Cons: "I bought a round trip ticket online with my current passport number. When I arrived in Shanghai, I was held at the Customs for extra 20 or 30 minutes because the airline provided a passport number I used more than 10 years ago. My luggage was held at Pudong airport quite a few days. Each day, they said something different to me... When it's the time for me to go back, I was held again at PEK, because of the different passport number they kept in their system. Even though I explained to them how I purchased the ticket with my current passport number and I have no idea where the problem happened. They insisted that it was my own fault. My gmail did not work properly in China. I asked them for help by providing me the ticket agent contact info in the States. They said that they did not know. I should go where I bought my ticket. I had to spend hours to contact friends in the States to find the phone number of justfly.com. Then, I made international call to justfly for about hour to have the problem fixed. I did not provide any wrong info when purchasing the ticket. The problem was made between the airline and their agent. They, as professionals, could easily have the problem solved but they blamed the customer for the mistake. I had to spend so much extra time and money to cover their mistake, at the risk of missing my flight. That's the worst experience I ever had for international flight."
Cons: "They would not accomidate a flight change after I was delayed in an accident getting to the airport. One desk said there was a seat on the earlier flight and sent me out of the gate area to the front of the airport. When I got there a few minutes later they said no there is no seat. I was upset because I had to wait 6 hours now and go back through security again. I asked to speak to a supervisor. They pertended not to understand. I was persistant and then they siad oh here is a seat on the 1:00 flight. Then he goes do you want window or aisle. If there was no seats whey do I have a choice?"
Pros: "Definitely one of the best airline travel experiences of my life."
Cons: "The food has room for improvement but was decent."
Pros: "The food served it was delicious."
Cons: "Nothing to comment."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Gate was changed without warning. Flight was delayed three times. Once due to congestion in the airport which lead to two weather delays."
Cons: "8 hour delay, no updates. No schedules"
Pros: "The food was the only semi-redeeming quality of this trip."
Cons: "The staff of China Eastern was horrible. The check in counter was incredibly rude, unhelpful, and downright mean. I was traveling alone with 4 children and they were not one bit helpful. I actually missed my flight, they didn't tell me that it would take so long to get through security and not a single person would assist me in getting our flight changed and getting us on our plane. We will never fly China Eastern again."
Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "Our flight from Beijing to Shanghai was cancelled. We were notified about 8 hours before the flight was to depart, leaving us scrambling to fix the problem. We received no explanation for the cancellation of the flight. China Eastern and Flight Network did very little to help us. They wanted to rebook us on a flight 2 days later than the one that was cancelled. Originally, we were meant to arrive in Chicago Saturday morning, and the flight they planned to switch us to would not arrive until Monday night. Since we have jobs to keep, that wouldn't work for us. We tried to get a refund for the cancelled flight but couldn't seem to find anyone who would help us. We had to pay for a new flight on our own, costing us $1800."
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Great on board service and very friendly."
Cons: "I had a layover in Kunming but was unable to check my bags all the way through to my destination, which was after the second flight. The plane landed 20 minutes late and then I had to go through baggage claim, check-in, get my 2nd boarding pass printed, re-check my bag, do customs, and security during my layover (1 hr 40 min) between flight. It was the most stressful flying experience I have had to date. Ended up running through the airport in Kunming, begging to jump lines in order to make the second flight, and catching the plane 5 minutes before takeoff. Luckily they allowed us to board even though it was so close to time. Very stressful experience."
Pros: "Fantastic service!"
Pros: "upgrade for 40usd"
Pros: "I got a flight"
Cons: "Everything else!"
Cons: "Broken chair."
Pros: "The seats were roomy for economy class."
Cons: "The time delay, they fed us our meal before lift off because we were sitting on the plane for hours."
Cons: "I enjoyed the trip from LA to Okinawa, then to China But from Beijing to Shanghai then to USA It was delay and despite I told the staff that my husband is very pro to infection they still put him at last second roll 73 and closed to all little kids some were coughing. There are some area still opened seat. Please don't take me wrong I love the kids but such incident- kids did not put on their seat bell while the airplane were taking off. I had to remind your staff. Some of those parents did sit in between but not paid close attention of their/other kids. Sophia Tse"
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "They do not allow you to use your iPhone, even in airplane mode. They give you wifi and chargers, but you cannot use your phone. iPads are ok though, which make no sense whatsoever. They're stuck in 1999."
Pros: "Services friendly.no"
Pros: "Overall is OK"
Cons: "Too long wait time at Shanghai"
Pros: "Flight attendants were good."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. The flight path was a little rough with turbulence."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The booking counter in KBV couldn't check me in for my connecting flight in Shanghai. This required me to wait in a number of lines in Shanghai, get a temporary visa, pick up my luggage, check in again and repeat immigration and security-early in the morning with a flight to catch. Also, I tried to speed thing up by attempting to use the Priority check-in, thinking that my hurried situation would be enough to convince the counterperson to help me. NOPE. Even though there was zero line, he refused to help and treated my like a peasant. I've never been treated that way at an airport before. Extremely rude and frustrating for us. Oh, and then on the flight back to Tokyo, there was a fight between two men in the aisle. I'm not kidding. I will never fly this airline again. It was cheap. And I should have known better."
Pros: "The crew seem to be very nice people. There are making the best out of a bad situation."
Cons: "Where to begin? The plane had no modern entertainment systems. There were no televisions for individuals. The group TV played some terrible just for fun TV show. It's a rip off candid camera. The food was mediocre at best. Nothing more discouraging me being given a kiddie cup for your soft drink. No opportunity to ask for a can, they use liter size bottles. The check and the clerk of shirred me that I was receiving an extra long legroom seat. It was not. Only due to the fact the flight was 70% full was I able to move to a exit aisle seat with long legroom. Then I was seated next to a young man who proceeded to belch the whole flight. I guess that's a cultural thing. Just part of the aura of China Eastern."
Pros: "More food and drink choices More international appeal Free internet"
Cons: "Lack of international entertainment"
Pros: "It was on time! Staff were friendly."
Cons: "Outside boarding"
Pros: "Crew attitude"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crews were friendly and helpful, a lot of entertainment choices on the plane, food was not bad."
Cons: "Customer service is so hard to reach. Every single time i need to hold for at least half hour before someone answers my call."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Nothing unexpected. The flight was pretty much on time although of course most delays are not due to the airline. I've flown many times with China Eastern and I like it."
Pros: "Food - Free dinners even for economy class. Entertainment - Every seat has a TV that offers multiple languages and tons of blockbuster movies from a variety of genres. They also offer many television shows in multiple languages and genres and video games. Roomy- The seats are as non-roomy as any airplane. However, the flight attendants don't give you any trouble when you want to just get up and walk around and talk to people. It gives the plane a roomy atmosphere. You can go to spacier sections of the plane to hang out."

Pros: "the Japanese staff was friendly and nice"
Cons: "i am very sorry to say this but the food is simply disgusting"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "the timliness the processing at beijing the helpful checkin people at the akl airport. The baggage delivered promptly and without breakage. The crew worked hard to ensure"
Cons: "the shops at air port are expensive the toilet sinks were slopping and did not drain well the airline apologizing for the lack of food choice before each service pl advise airline to ask for choice at the check-in or at least make a note of the preference through email, makes life easier for them and the passengers. announcements were in chinese and the english ones were not very clear . it would be good if the announcements also came up on the seat screens CLEANLINESS WAS AN ISSUE with the overhead lockers not clean to the pull up table and magazine spaces not clean"
Pros: "Very good service on board, crew very attentive and polite."
Cons: "Lack of communication with customers in change of situation. Airline had to change the aircraft and as a result all passengers had to be transported to the new aircraft by buses rather than via boarding bridges. It was the longest airport shuttle ride ever because no one told us what to expect. People complained. But airline could have managed expectations better by giving notice to customers what will happen next, customers will be more forgiving that way."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment was pretty good - I watched 2 movies and a couple nature documentaries. Food was decent."
Cons: "Seats are horribly uncomfortable especially for a tall person. The "C" shape plus the headrest jutting out so far make it impossible to get comfortable enough to fall asleep and there is very little leg room. I had finally drifted off when my friend poked me awake because they were serving dinner even though there were about 4 hours left in the flight. I was half asleep and had no appetite so I ended up giving them the whole tray back. There was also a shrill toddler several rows ahead of us who was yapping loudly for the entire second half of the flight. I obviously understand that children will be children and it was a long flight, but would have been nice if staff had asked the parents to try to quiet him down as they were not attempting to do so at all. Finally, our bags did not make it onto the next flight in time."
Pros: "Was the cheapest option at the time, and quality wasn't worse than the others"
Pros: "The dumpling. The on board staff were very pleasant and had a lovely glass of coke cola with ice bit small though."
Cons: "After 30 hours of travelling and no problems my luggage got lost on my last flight. I still haven’t got it yet, my medication was In there and it has ruined the whole trip for me. I am so upset with service I can’t begin to explain the pain I am now suffering. I have no clothes other than what I’m wearing. I have no toothpaste or toiletries. I feel ashamed of myself as I have dirty clothes on. I am truly not satisfied with my service. I have been let down to the highest order."
Pros: "Ran on time"
Cons: "Food and drink options are limited"
Pros: "The on time performance also inflight Meals"
Cons: "Check in for Departure"
Pros: "on the plane, Crew in CA are great! Food is delicious! Entertainment is very good!"
Cons: "I had a terrible time yesterday when I had to transfer from CA 4120 to CA 429 in Chengdu Shuangliu to Sydney. When I got off at Shuangliu airport From CA 4120 at 23:50pm, there was no airport bus to transfer me from T2 to T1 international Departure at Chengdu Shuangliu. I have to run in the dark nearly 2 km to catch 1:20 am CA 429 to Sydney Australia. Really bad international service in Chengdu Shuangliu!!"
Cons: "It was not a pleasant stay in Beijing airport... The staff were very rude and not helpful.. I had to fight for the wi-fi code and I had to fill out a form, for a pass to get out if the airport... I waited over 90 mins in line, only to be told I was I the wrong line, in the first place ??? !!"
Pros: "Nice carrier. Enough leg room and clean flight"
Cons: "Entertainment had very limited options. I had booked my flight through travel agent vayama. I would never ever recommend people to use that travel agency. It takes approx 35-45 mins to contact customer care, you are way better off taking the tickets from airline as they cannot help much if the tickets are done through agency and not airline directly. Moreover the agency charges additional fee over and above airline fees for any changes"
Pros: "Food was okay but nice to have a small snack in between the 2 meals; felt a bit hungry from Washington Dulles flight to Beijing."
Cons: "The problem is the time Air China to make the connection flight. It only allows one and half hour from the flight from Hong Kong to Beijing and the latter to Washington Dulles. When the plane touched down in Beijing, it took over half an hour just to taxi to the gate. I have to run literally from the gate to the immigration and to TSA. I had also cut the line to get to the front so I don't missed the connecting flight. There were people screamed and yelled about our action (I Have 2 other couples under the same situation and don't want to miss their flight). But I finally made the security understand that we were told by Air China (with the red Air China round sticker) that we should cut the line to get to our plane. This is second time happened to me and Air China won't wait to close its gate when departure time arrives. I am not sure what will happen if I miss the connection. I stranded one night in Beijing with Continental couple years ago because of typhoon and was told the airline is not required to do anything for you because of weather related. But the connection issue needs to be addressed as I am sure some of my fellow passengers had missed their connecting flight yesterday. For now, I will stay away from Beijing connection ( ie no more Air China) until the latter makes some realistic adjustment to its connecting schedule. This is not difficult but they need to be aware and lessen stress to its customers. Beijing airport authority needs better facility with properly trained personnel to facilitate the transfer process. I had used Tokyo and Seoul with so much ease. Beijing needs to get up"
Pros: "This flight was a codeshare bw Cathay and China air, which lead to confusion on the ground at Beijing (did we book at Cathay or at Air China - even the Air China staff did not know initially) Small seats, very average food, entertainment system not up to scratch in terms of being easy to use and responsive. Relatively inexpensive flight but I would Stump up The $ next time and make sure I’m flying with someone of a higher standard"
Cons: "No personal entertainment but a lot of leg room"
Pros: "My previous flight was delayed so I missed the plane I was scheduled for, but Air China found me a replacement flight that was only a couple of hours later. Despite the extra passengers from the delayed flight the plane still had a few empty seats and I was able to take an exit seat for extra legroom (I'm 6'5"), although I will still upgrade in future."
Cons: "On the flight out the plane was really warm, so this time I dressed on that basis, but the flight was really quite cold. I guess I'll have to figure out a changable set of cloths in future."
Pros: "The Beijing/Osaka flight was a smaller simpler plane than the Heathrow/Beijing one, but cconsidering the amount of time both flights take relative to each other, I think it had the better balance of the two."
Cons: "The only thing I'd suggest is while the Crew were great and did offer drinks a number of times, the first drinks run seemed late - although that might just be a combination of needing to wait until the plane has reached full altitude and the desire to clear the unpleasant Beijing air."
Pros: "Flight was good but my luggage case was broke the two wheels have been broke off make my case not useable as it has two holes were the wheels was"
Cons: "suit case was broke wen I was given it at ho chi ming city two big holes where the wheels was I have taken photos also"
Pros: "I disliked their judgement decision because I have entered India in the past by land and was eligible for a tourist visa with a proper USA passport..The judgement of the staff at the airport was related to ,You do not have a visa now you can not got on the plane.I explained as a tourist I can get one when I arrive at customs India as a tourist entering Indian .The staff had a meeting taking an hour or more and the flight time was approaching I begin to worry, they continued to stone wall me and then stated you cannot get on the plane and the airline will not refund your ticket price.you are at fault no visa a visa is required to get on the plane .I was sad I had to sleep at the airport got a hostel iin a m"
Cons: "I couldn't watch movies on the flight all the writing was in Chinese so the flight was boring"
Cons: "You name it, I've flown it, but Air China takes the cake for all-around worst experience on a plane. For starters, the idea of customer service hasn't made it's way to Air China. The staff were cold, at best, and rude, at worst. The food is one step below prison food. In my opinion, it was inedible. Every Air China flight I took (and I took 4) were the most turbulent I've ever taken, almost as if the pilot was purposefully trying to rattle us. Finally, one of the most annoying things about Air China is not being able to check in via app. Their tech is from 1987, so you have to go to their airport counter and endure long lines. I will NEVER fly with them again."
Pros: "Middle of the roax"
Cons: "To tight of a seat for a man who is 6'3 275 lbs. Shear brutality"
Pros: "Crew was friendly helpful"
Cons: "I ordered muslim food but they said they don’t have"
Pros: "There is nothing I liked about Air China. It is a joke of an airline."
Cons: "Things I didn't like: 1. Cannot use smartphones during the entirety of the flight: customers should be warned that smartphones are not allowed to be used during the entire flight. I would not of chosen this horrible airlines if I'd known. I would of gladly spent hundreds more on another airline to avoid this inconvenience. I saved games and movies I wanted to play onto my phone for my 20hr flight and learned from the flight attendant that phones usage was not permitted. What a waste. Plus their movie selections were very limited and a complete joke compared to American, Delta, Virgin, or JetBlue. 2. Food: HORRIBLE TASTING FOOD. Air China should be ashamed of themselves to represent "Chinese food" in this way. I found 3 out of 4 of my meals completely inedible and absolutely disgusting. 3. Most cramped seats I've ever flew in: These seats are just tests to see how much you can put up with flying."
Cons: "Horrible communications! Requested an upgrade and was told the system was down then on return trip requested upgrade again and was told that it had to be done at check in which means returning to main terminal by tram and going through security again as the girl at the boarding desk returned to playing with her phone. There was more than 50% first class seats unfilled, good news for investors. On the tv monitor we were watching our final approach as we bypassed the airport and made three 360 degree turns 50 miles out for 30 minutes and not one word from the Captain what was happening, very nerve racking. Never fly Air China again!"
Pros: "Cheap ticket"
Cons: "Air China still doesn’t let you use your phone at all during a flight even on airplane mode which is problematic when all of your music, podcasts, and audiobooks are on your phone. The food was terrible and in a 13 hour flight we were offered no snacks between our two terrible lukewarm meals. The flight attendants were not very helpful or friendly. My boyfriend was having stomach issues and they wouldn’t let them sit in an empty seat next to the bathroom for a few hours. They also booked our tickets with only an hour to switch and had to be rushed through security."
Cons: "No hotel provided for 24 hour stop over. Also the bags were not checked in for the whole travel so we had to collect the bags and carry them for whole time. It was really pathetic experience. The officers at the Beijing Air China counter don't understand English which made the simple conversation more difficult. We had to pay for the hotel, taxi and food."
Pros: "Meals were decent, Staff was VERY attentive, courteous and polite. Ride was very smooth. Didn't hear much from the pilots, which is ok!"
Cons: "The no-phone, no-internet rule is absurd. I could have really used some internet-for-purchase on a 13 hour flight. Some movies were only in Chinese with no subtitles and the games seemed to require a separate controller with X/Y buttons. Overall blah score entertainment. Announcements were too frequent an intrusive, especially when they're repeating the same thing 2 minutes apart. Also, the weird rules--shades must be up during takeoff, but must be down while we were in the air. Seat must be up during meal time. Learn to chill a little China Air."
Cons: "I was given permission to have priority boarding because of my son. When I advised the ticket agent of this at the gate she attempted to deny us pre-boarding even though I explained I was given permission. When I wouldn't back down she let us in reluctantly. Then she proceeded tell an additional security check right before the doors to check me because I was suspicious. She followed this will telling them to check me thoroughly and slowly. This made me even madder because I was the only one they did this to. Everyone else that was randomly (randomly I might add because it is supposed to be random) got swiped with a little wipe and was let through. I had to take articles of clothing off and have all by carry on bags gone through. Even my 6 year old sons whose bag I was carrying because he couldn't. This set off my son by the way who doesn't do well with the stress of boarding because of all the people (which is why we needed to pre-board the plane). So I had to have a friend leave with him to board the plane and couldn't be there for him because of this one agents problem of me not doing what she said and standing up for myself and my family. Oh, and by the way I was very respectful when speaking with her and their could have been no confusion between the language as I was speaking to her in Chinese."
Cons: "I did not take this flight because Air China and flightnetwork.com did not register my information even after taking my money."
Cons: "No ability to charge smartphone or laptops"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "A lot not to like. In consistency following their own rules - i.e. asking some passengers to move from crew seats but allowing others to sit there, phones are not allowed to be used on flight mode but iPads etc are (even though both are capable of emitting radio waves). Food is very bad, even for someone familiar with asian food. Most of the staff cannot speak English properly. Constant announcements throughout the flight, even for minor things for example announcing the sale of duty free items"
Pros: "Quick flight love the journey map!"
Cons: "Awful seat mates. Dumb bros who couldn’t stop calling everything “fire”. Couldn’t be helped tho."
Cons: "cannot access the reservation or checkin at Air China site"
Cons: "Seats too small"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Air China sent us an email that were we rebooked on a later flight. Even, so the staff in Beijing charged us a $300 change fee. We called customer service and was told that no one could help us. We spoke to management at the airport and were told we had to pay fee to get our luggage back. It was horrible. Besides that, our section of the plane did not have AC during the 13 hour flight from NY to Beijing, the planes are dated and so is the in-flight entertainment offered. they also ended up losing the luggage they were holding hostage. Overall, a terrible experience."
Pros: "Flying on Air China typically works for my travels to Los Angeles. I think they are a great choice given the cost and services : )"
Cons: "The departure out of Beijing was delayed some 1.5 hours because of one person who apparently left his passport near the gate prior to boarding. It was a full flight. I was just stunned that they would inconvenience hundreds of people whose schedules, including mine, were affected by their decision. May be it was a policy issue. But the crew didn't explain it very well, seemed more sympathetic towards the individual. While that was a kind solution to that one individuals but I wondered about the judgement of the crew. It was very frustrating for the rest of the people waiting onboard. Also this was the first time booking through justfly.com because it seemed the cheapest but the hidden (additional) cost was in the seat selection stage afterwards. Kinda misleading."
Cons: "No entertainment because no individual screen for movie"
Pros: "I did not allowd to boarding and Air China tell me that FlightNetwork did not book the ticket for me when I arrive airport."
Cons: "Is this Your service? Can I have a compensation as I have to buy another ticket and lost one day?"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours without any notification on signage in the airport. When there is a delay, posting an estimated time of departure is a basic courtesy. Because they did not do this, and multiple flights were delayed for the same gate, the gate was extremely crowded. When an earlier delayed flight was boarding, there was no announcement and no indication on the signs! As a result, some people were uninformed of their flight departure! There was also a tremendous amount of jostling and pushing to allow people to board. This is clearly a problem for the ground crew and airport to make more efficient and flyer-friendly."
Cons: "Seat is small and uncomfortable Landing late Food test not good poor customer service Drink should serve more often"
Pros: "I was extremely pleased with the flight attendants. They were excellent at all times. Very professional and friendly. I was particularly surprised at their approach to any passenger who could potentially cause problems for the flight or other passengers. I'm American and to be frank, we are total jerks in flight. You tell an American to put away their mobile device and as soon as you turn your back they're back at it. Americans in general are unreasonable people. The flight attendants' approach to solving problems before they have an opportuniy to become problems was a sight to see, friendly, non-confrontational. They brought beverages around at regular intervals which was very comforting. Also, not only were blankets and pillows at every seat before takeoff, but they were fairly decent. Very comfortable. On a US carrier you can expect to be charged extra for any little thing, and so you don't even bother to ask for it. On Air China you don't have to worry about it."
Cons: "I had my iPad so entertainment wasn't a problem, but checking out the listings there was inadequate entertainment for a twelve hour flight for any passenger who didn't bring their own as I did. On my twelve hour flight from Beijing to Los Angeles, they only had one meal. And this was after the flight had been delayed. I couldn't understand why they thought it was OK to provide only one meal for a twelve hour flight."
Pros: "Generally every thing, good excellent, seats comfortable crew fabulous!!"
Cons: "For passengers continuing their flight and for which a free room is provided in Beijing, it would help if written direction on how to get to customer service counter which provides hotel authorization and transportation to hotel."
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."
Cons: "I didn't like that FlightNetwork confirmed my flight, but then never ticketed it. I did not realize till I was at the airport and it was too late. my whole family was late to our vacation and had to re-purchase a last minute ticket to leave the next day instead. This does not reflect on AirChina, but the Kayak booking process. Reading some other reviews here, it seems this happened to others. Terrible!"
Pros: "Airfare was a good price."
Cons: "Departure from Newark was 1.5 hours late because of a lame reason, the luggage couldn't be loaded on the plane in a timely manner. When I arrived at Beijing, they encouraged me to run to my connecting flight, even gave me a sticker and had people directing me, but it all seemed like for nothing as I wasn't even fast tracked through security. Not only did I sprint a mile across the terminal for no reason as the flight departed when I arrived at the gate, they couldn't even properly direct me where to get a new ticket for the next flight. About 100 people missed the flight so I don't know why they didn't hold the connecting flight as it was the last one of the day. Very poor service and organization the entire length of the trip. The flight the next day was late as well!"
Pros: "Ppl r ok to work on plants,"
Cons: "Almost everything is sucks, I will never forget these horrible experiences in my life."
