KAYAK is a travel search engine. That means we look across the web to find the best prices we can find for our users. With over 2 billion flight queries processed yearly, we are able to display a variety of prices and options on flights to China.
KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool uses historical data to determine whether the price for a flight to China is likely to change within 7 days, so travelers know whether to wait or book now.
Hacker Fares allow you to combine one-way tickets in order to save you money over a traditional round-trip ticket. You could then fly to China with an airline and back with another airline.
Sometimes travel dates aren't set in stone. If your preferred travel dates have some wiggle room, flexible dates will show you all the options when flying to China up to 3 days before/after your preferred dates. You can then pick the flights that suit you best.
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Seat cramped"
Pros: "The size of the plane."
Cons: "Wider seats. More entertainment options other that the Limited Live Television options."
Pros: "Crew super attentive and pleasant, movie options good, liked plug/outlet,"
Cons: "Seating could’ve been a little better, just not super comfortable for such a long flight"
Cons: "Business class - never offered food or drink for entire flight."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable enough to sleep for a few hours"
Cons: "The ac in cabin could have been a lot colder"
Pros: "Flying out around bad weather; lucky we got out in time. Pilot did a reasonable job keeping passengers up to speed on what was happening. Flight attendants were friendly and respectful. CRJ-900 leather seats are more comfortable than your average economy seat."
Cons: "In flight wifi didn't work the whole trip. Plane was a sauna getting in and on the ramp, air conditioning wasn't working on the ground. Boarding took FOREVER with some less than competent wheelchair agents (I think)."
Cons: "Plane was changed, lost all upgrades and assigned a random seat. One of the flight attendant had poor customer skills, was just rude overall."
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful"
Cons: "Better weather"
Cons: "Bussed from Green Bay to Chicago."
Pros: "I really enjoyed kicking back and watching —- **EXCUSE ME EVERYONE ........ JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW.......... WE’RE GOING TO BE LANDING IN A COUPLE OF HOURS IN BEAUTIFUL..... SUNNY.... LOS ANGELES.... WHERE THE TEMPERATURE IS A PERFECT..... 72 DEGREES..... FAHERENHEIT** —-a couple of movies."
Cons: "*ding We Are GoingToBeLanding In Two Hours. *ding* I noticed there were a number of anno — *JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW.... THAT WE MAY EXPERIENCE SOME TURBULENCE.... BUT WE SHOULD BE LANDING A LITTLE EARLY..... IN ABOUT AN HOUR AND 45 MINUTES... YOU SHOULD REACH YOUR DESTINATION.... IN BEAUTIFUL... SUNNY... LOS ANGELES...* —uncements in the middle of watching a movie. And it seem — *ding* Some TurbulenceMayOccur PleaseFascenSeatBelts. FlightAndCrew PleasePrepareForLanding in OneHour and FortyFive Minutes *ding* —ed difficult to relax and pay attention to that movie. It sorta seemed like the pilot wanted us to — *ALRIGHT EVERYONE WE’RE EXPERIENCING SOME TURBULENCE HERE.... JUST WANTED TO LET YOU ALL KNOW.... TO FASCEN YOUR SEATBELTS..... AND PLEASE REMAIN SEATED* —pay attending to him instead of the movie or whatever other people were doing."
Pros: "Late taking off. Pretty much on time for arrival. The pilots made up an hour."
Cons: "AA flight into Miami delayed due to late arrival of aircraft, followed by significant delay on the tarmac waiting for another plane to leave. This then delayed getting bags that required rechecking. At the AA booth, even though I was 42 minutes before the flight, they would not let me check my bags (not 45 minutes before) requiring me to stay in Miami overnight before booking me on a standby flight the next day. Customer service representatives were unhelpful and supervisor was rude. As someone who travels a lot, this was the worst service I have ever received from an airline (which says quite a bit). Will rethink ever booking a trip on American again."
Pros: "Plane is clean. Well kept"
Cons: "Wifi. It terrible"
Pros: "The entertainment was good. A lot of things to choose from."
Cons: "The boarding took too long"
Cons: "I was rebooked and the process between American and British Airways was very confusing. I was lucky to get a seat on the plane which I had to pay extra for even though I booked in January for an August flight. Also it was crazy that there was no inflight entertainment for such a long flight."
Pros: "Made it home."
Cons: "All the ridiculous announcements by the crew with nonvalue added information."
Pros: "The crew made a real effort to make everyone comfortable."
Pros: "Jams you up with connections in Charlotte."
Cons: "Always running to make connections."
Cons: "My flight was not only delayed by two hours, it was also cancelled at the time of departure. The weather was clear, no reports or reasons as to why flight was cancelled. We had to rebook another flight to our destination at another airport 5hours away, the next day, no reimbursement or upgrade for travel delays"
Cons: "Was unable to get our bags for over 45min following the flight, due to the fact that there was no one working at any of the counters."
Pros: "But, the customer service was good."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "5 plus hour flight and one movie as entertainment option shown on a tiny screen from cabin headliner. Like in the 1980’s. and do not forget your headphones or you will be buying some earbuds!"
Cons: "I'm petite 5 ft 2. 120 pounds but felt Not enough leg room too cramped. Otherwise was good on time and good choices of movies and food"
Cons: "I was forced to check my carry on luggage. There was no problems on the way up to DC, just on the way back."
Cons: "Trying to make any changes to the booking or check in was horrible. Because this was booked through kayak, then through an agent, then ultimately an Iberia booking on a British Airways / American flight, it took about 5 rounds of phonecalls being passed to another company or another department to get anything done. Sure the flight was cheap, but 6 hours of phone calls to get anything done is unacceptable. The plane used for this flight is ancient. Very tired seating, and no seatback entertainment. One children's film shown on the central TV screen followed by old sitcoms....For a transatlintic flight, this is really poor."
Cons: "Typical Shanghai ground delays"
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable. The steward as very helpful - just a cup of coffee when I entered the plane - but after nearly missing connections, it was very welcome."
Cons: "The flight was perfect."
Cons: "First plane's engine caught on fire."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Delayed by two hours."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very cold"
Pros: "Flight from Lax to Lihue. Very comfortable, crew enjoyable entertainment with options"
Cons: "Everything about the flight from.Boston to Lax"
Pros: "fly was on time, good service, food and entertainment."
Cons: "Flight was late, got a message from Kayak that it was delayed 3 hours...thank goodness I happened to check again, because then it was only delayed for 41 mins, then it gave me an update that it was only 21 mins delayed, then went back to 41! Pretty inconvenient, and it would have been nice to get a text, not just some silent pop up"
Pros: "Movie options"
Cons: "2 hour delay was inconvenient. Like why?"
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time. Seats had power jacks."
Cons: "Could not understand pilot communications. First class flight attendant Jill did nothing special to deserve recognition. No wifi on board."
Pros: "Liked the ease of traveling from DFW to Corpus."
Cons: "The crew, especially flight attendant Brittany, were rude, and she was beyond rude and actually the backend of a donkey. She snapped at us about a carry on that wasn't an issue traveling to DFW., then ignored me (have a boot and crutch) when seats with more room were available...then did nothing to help get my crutch from the storage."
Cons: "Staff behaviour"
Pros: "The inflight crew was outstanding!"
Cons: " the "group system" boarding process arranges passengers in an aleatory way making the process totally chaotic. For instance last groups are the last ones to enter the aircraft and don't easily find space for the hand luggage. They have to accommodate bags under the front seat making the already uncomfortable trip more painful. Also this process may delay the departure time.  Food service is terrible. no options, specially for kids or people with food restrictions. Not even the payed ones offer healthy food alternatives.  No comfort at all for a flight that departs little before midnight and arrives at 7 am at its destination. They forgot about the pillows and blankets you find in other airlines.  at the end, when I collected my baggage I realized 1 wheel was missing from one of my suitcases. I informed the airline and 3 days later I receive an email saying that the airline is not responsible for damages that include wheels and other "baggage accessories" I did not rate the flight poor because at least it manages to arrive to its final destination..."
Pros: "I was really excited about the timely correct schedule of the flights with British Airways."
Cons: "The long distances for running from one gate to the other. I know this is for elderly people like me, and the children as well, typically a little bit hard, but a small appropriate [air]shuttle same how is a thing, on which the advanced technology has to think. (?)"
Pros: "Trouble free and on time. Got in early to the CLT connection and AA put me on an earlier flight to BOS on standby. Very smooth trip. Good job AA."
Cons: "Apparently due to staffing issue I sat in a plane for 2 hours before it took off causing me and my partner to miss our connection."
Pros: "Individual screens worked well, food was good."
Cons: "Flight attendants with carts bumped my boyfriend's shoulder repeatedly, nearly every time they went by, without ever apologizing. They were also really rude when we asked for additional beverages. I travel very frequently, and I was shockedz"
Pros: "When we tried to check in there was not reservation because flight was with American not satam - luckily we figured it out"
Cons: "Make it clear that ticketing airline might not be the actual airline!!"
