Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "My seat was horrible. I'm sure it was like that for everyone in economy. The seat can't recline putting me in an awkward position for the entire flight.

Cons: "I was very disappointed with the new release movie selection. For a 12 hour flight, there seemed to be more foreign movie options than American new releases."
Pros: "Very punctual. Service is excellent. I like Tokyo Haneda Airport because it’s smaller and the gates are closer."

Pros: "Great crews and good foot space!"
Cons: "Food was terrible! Getting worse every time !"
Pros: "The attendants are all courteous and respectful."
Pros: "Everything.. the crew was so gracious and kind even tho the delay was out their control. they even gave us 30,000 Yen or $260 approximately, which they didn’t have to do. i will start flyin ANA... not because of the money, but because of the delay... which no American carrier would have done and would’ve given excuse after excuse."

Pros: "Good food and cabin service. Accommodating in connecting flight arrangements."
Cons: "Left an hour late because of slow ground service and poor scheduling. Extremely uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "More of an movie selection. Maybe up date movie ever 2-3 weeks as they become available for the company"
Pros: "The plane was new enough and clean, the food was modest but good, snacks were generous and tasty, but what sets ANA apart is the attentiveness, courtesy, and thoughtfulness of the crew. I used to fly Singapore Airlines often and felt this way about them, but in recent years I’ve noticed a fall off in service. ANA has maintained or even raised their standards of service."
Cons: "The food good but not great. But...it’s airplane food."
Pros: "felt Agent's kind care of elder (me) at Airport. Thanks."
Cons: "Full of passengers. Code Share!?"
Cons: "The check-in at LAX. They form 2 different lines for Economy. The 1st line was lined with the people arriving first. Then the 2nd line started to fill later. But when the ANA agents came out, they have no clue and serve the line of the people arriving later. Should know what they are doing. Either just 1 line, or if 2 lines, should ask which line come first"
Pros: "People the staff was nice and tried to be helpful"
Cons: "Gates kept changing flight was delayed multiple times the flight had no air so I was sweating the whole time my nose began to bleed. I missed my connecting flight to Okinawa they sent me on a hour long shuttle to another airport to fly out the next day."
Pros: "free movies"
Cons: "somehow new seat of this aircraft is very uncomfortable with my hip. It was kind of painful to sit tight for long period. I think my body likes older seat which actually reclining toward behind other guests. or I guess maybe I just get older. I asked 2 beer cans but completely ignored. maybe I was too shy."
Pros: "Customer service and food!"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly, quick to respond to questions, and very helpful. I was able to switch seats even though the flight was full. The food was fine but the menu for the return flight looked better still."
Cons: "The flight was 100% full. I took a redeye flight hoping to sleep a bit on the plane but I ended up not sleeping much. I am happy to take ANA on my return flight, which is not redeye. Also I will be happy to fly ANA again, but I would not take a redeye flight on any airline unless I was in business or first class which I cannot reasonably afford at the moment."
Pros: "The service and the seats"
Pros: "The landing was very smooth. I have motion sickness and usually the landing gets me really sick. However I was okay for this one."
Pros: "The flight attendants are super nice every time we fly with ANA, and the have great food."
Pros: "everything was so smooth!!"
Cons: "entertainment : wish there were more japanese comedies!!"
Pros: "On time，no delay. Food is good. Crew is concerned about passengers when I request to change to an aisle seat，though my request is not fulfilled. I still appreciate the crew's effort."
Cons: "Seats we’re tight on second flight. They had an odd foot rest protruding.....?"
Pros: "The diabetic meals"
Cons: "Headphones and more snacks."
Cons: "Crew was fantastic. Very attentive to passengers’ needs. From check in to baggage claim, China Airlines was fantastic. When many passengers needed to board aconnecting flight in Taipei to Bangkok with very little time, crew members shepherded all of us through the tram and security right to boarding. It was fantastic. China Airlines is my “go to” company for any routes on my travels they provide in the future. Thank you China Airlines!!!"
Pros: "Vegan meal was okay. Check in swift and good. Too crowded. Seats too tight."
Cons: "Hard to ask for more spacious seating but I will."
Pros: "Crew was the best ever, and I've been flying on China Air for 40 years.... they must have put in a good program to achieve this better-than-before result."
Cons: "Boarding from a shuttle bus gate at midnight is problematic... we had to stand on the bus in the dark, and couldn't figure out when the driver was going to turn or stop or go, so people (including many old people) were tripping over for the duration of the bus ride."
Pros: "All ran on time. Crew okay"
Cons: "Seat uncomfortable. Food awful. For such a long trip-impossible to be comfortable in economy."
Cons: "Dinner served 1130 pm breakfast after 12 hrs peanut snack."
Pros: "I got some sleep. Crew was pleasant. Plane is pretty and clean."
Cons: "Old men on both sides of me ... not the best conversationalists."
Pros: "Check-in counter - staff was corteous"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, air line did not offer any food nor hotel accommodation. We were rebooked to a different carrier, departed 13 hours later."
Cons: "no place to put pillow/blanket while eating"
Pros: "Better service and food than recent USA experience China Airlines at LAX had me sign a statement that I knew I may be denied entry to destination Indonesia, as told required exit ticket which did not have...was not asked anything at indo immigration, customs, etc a breeze"
Cons: "Too small seats I believe Kayak info was China Airlines allowed 55 lbs checked - China Airlines site says 50....so May be important to travelers to do their own verifications..."
Pros: "Nice attention to details like water periodically during flight and warm towels before our meal."
Cons: "The food was only okay. I ordered a special meal and it was bland with mushy veggies and unhealthy looking salads. I’m picky so I may get be a bit more judgemental."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was awesome."
Pros: "cheap ticket buf it comes with a cost-- a seat on the end rear section of the plane!"
Cons: "the cheap ticket that you reserved on line puts you at the tail portion of the plane where you will have to endure a 14 hours of turbulence. food is not impressive! the plane left lax so late that we have to run to our connecting gate in taipei!"
Pros: "Pleasant flight attendants, great attentiveness. Clean planes."
Cons: "Seat cushions were VERY hard."
Pros: "Overall, it wasn't a bad experience but it wasn't fantastic."
Cons: "The crew barely smiled."
Cons: "No choice for seats. The assigned seats was in the middle of four chairs. The alternative option was the same, but in different row. (Not sure if these kind of seats leave it to Kayak, or other travel company)."
Pros: "Food was pretty good (for airplane food), staff was friendly and made sure everyone was comfortable"
Pros: "The food, service, and seats were all great in economy. I typically fly UA and China Airline's entertainment system and seat comfort are definitely on par on this 777 when compared to UA's 787."
Cons: "I didn't like that we didn't have a free row since our flight was packed - but that's not really much of a negative."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Less leg room than other airlines, food is not as good as other airlines. If only the seats could be more comfortable."
Pros: "I fly to South East Asia quote often and have tried a a few airlines. China Airlines has been the most consistent in all aspects. On time, ease of flying, on board entertainment. I will continue to look to use this Airline in the future."
Cons: "The food could be better. Maybe offer an American choice?"
Cons: "One of the crew members was a little rude. I was sleeping and was forced to wake up and pull my seat back all the way forward so the person behind me could eat."
Pros: "Service on the ground and in the air was efficient, if somewhat cool and uninterested. (The exception was at checkin counter where the service was great.) options for entertainment were great. Food was decent, legroom was decent, plane was older but still decent...."
Cons: "The entire plane's group of passengers seemed to be lined up at the boarding gate - no explanation why, but they were checking ID's. Then the line just moved into the plane. I prefer boarding by rows, especially when traveling with my young son. Air crew seemed pretty uninterested in anything beyond the basic requirements of the job."
Pros: "Chair comfort (but no location) , food and partially the crew."
Cons: "Terrible procedure of getting the BORDING pass. I had to walk very long distance from arrival to gate 155 to find a CIA desk to get my boarding pass. The worst seat on the plane was assigned to me and CiA procedure didn't give me any chance for a normal seat. I had the bad chance to be served by a HIPER team of two flight attendants that rised my blood pressure. Their egarness to be productive and their rush were NOT justified, especially on such a long flight; low professionalizm."
Cons: "General good!"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was okay. Changing planes in Taipei was enlivened by their funky themed lounges."
Cons: "The first meal was horrible. Things improved somewhat after that but it made a lasting impression."
Pros: "Nice crew, decent food"
Cons: "Very narrow seats, sitting between two mothers with crying infants"
Pros: "Service and flight was mediocre and flight time was longer than I thought."
Cons: "Economy chair doesn't recline at all. It was a minial space compare other airline's international flight."
Pros: "Airplanes are fairly new. Everything seemed fairly clean. Movie choices were good. The staff was really accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "Narrow seats in Economy. With every move, I had to be careful not to disturb the person next to me. I am a fairly skinny guy. This was quite challenging when I tried to eat. It was too easy to trigger the flight-attendant call button by accident with the touch screen. The icon is not really obvious and it is close to the screen on and off icon."
Pros: "I am a vegetarian and they didnt have any options. Whatever options the crew could find, they said it was vegetarian but i dont think it was. The crew didnt understand english and couldnt speak english at all. Come-on you are operating an international airlines. The check in took good TWO hours- never have seen this delay in check in."
Pros: "I had to make an emergency trip back home ASAP, and China Airlines had the best schedule. It was my first time flying with them, and I was not sure what to expect. Some quick research about safety and traveler experiences - indicated it would be a reasonably safe and comfortable flight. It was - good seats, smooth takeoff and landing, diligent attendants, and meal service was decent (for example - on par with KLM, better presentation than Air India, not as good as Qatar or ANA). I would consider flying with them again."
Cons: "Lunch meal was a rice/chicken/vegetable/thick sauce micture. Decent, but I was a bit put-off by the soupy rice. Perhaps because I had the congee for the breakfast meal, and had had enough of rice porridge texture."
Cons: "Comfort was horrible! We were cramped in like sardines there was absolutely no room! To walk to rest for 13 hour flight. Crew is stiff a feels like they're paid to smile."
Pros: "Flight attendants was prompt and courteous."
Cons: "Food was okay."
Pros: "The flight in Premium Economy is a good experience, worth the price of the ticket. I am accustomed to very long flights between Southeast Asia and Europe: this one compares favorably."
Cons: "Nothing wrong with the flight. Being a frequent flier I used the very short line in LAX to get my boarding pass. All other passengers were queuing up a very, very, long line. Since every single passenger has to go through a face to face session with a physical person, CI should really have more personnel available at LAX for the check-in procedures. The business lounge, provided by Korean Airlines, is a big disappointment. Food not worth mentioning. Going through security at TPE for passengers in transit there is no short line. The only line is very, very long, although quick enough. The facility for this procedure should also be renewed."
Pros: "One of the beat flying experiences ever. China Airlines does cust at a high level"
Cons: "Nothing to report bad"
Pros: "The flight I was on was leaving at 1:45AM. It took about 15-20 minutes to check in our bags and there were about 75 people ahead of us. We didn't wait at all for TSA, just walked up and there was absolutely no line. The China airlines staff was very nice and helpful. Also, there were screens on the headrest in front of us and they had new tv shows, music and movies all for free and they even provided earphones."
Cons: "The seats could have been a little more comfortable but it wasn't unbearable."
Pros: "Staff was good & food was always on time."
Cons: "I didn't like how the flight felt too congested. Especially on a 13hr flight. There was no self checking in or online check-in available so I had to wait in a long line to check-in. The most negative part about this flight is the 10hr delay in Taiwan. Sleeping in the airport for 10hrs isn't easy and fun especially after a 13hr flight. Overall, not a good experience as I hoped it would be."
Pros: "Entertainment system and the interior of the plane cabin."
Cons: "Crammed seats and how one female flight attendant yelled at a passenger out of impatience."
Pros: "On time, friendly people, airplane not too crowded, vegetarian food was good, luggage unloaded quickly so little waiting upon arrival in Taiwan."
Cons: "Carry on luggage weighed 9 Kg and they told me I had to remove some things. Suitcase was standard carry-on size, fit well into the display frame. I had plenty of room in the two checked in bags but they had already been processed and moved out on the conveyer belt. Never heard of such as small allowance for carry-on luggage, at least on Delta, United and the other airlines I generally fly. My impression was that this rule was not much enforced since I saw many carry-on bags bigger than mine and judging by the effort I saw when people put them overhead, they likely were heavier than mine."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No customer service people to talk to about seating. No one ever answer the telephone"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The attendants were very good on the flight and they made it worthwhile to fly there..."
Cons: "The customer service guy was not professional at all...also he was very back stabbing in his dealing with the requests...cause there were many open seats in premium economy and he claimed there were none...very bad attitude..."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly, very little patience. Overall just the way they served us as passages. Had better crew service in other flights"
Cons: "Something must be done about how far a person can recline their seats. I'm a '6 with long legs, the flight to Taipei was 13 hours. The guy in front of me reclined his seat all the way down. Flight crew was helpless."
Pros: "Like the staff on board. Very nice."
Cons: "Too hot! No individual air vents!! Need that on those planes. Also could have had better leg room Could have been nice to upgrade to economy plus even at the last minute Line at boarding was horrible. Very long and 2hr wait. Almost missed plane trying to get to security even after showing up 2 hrs before flight"
Pros: "The food was pretty good , I sat in premium economy, a far better enjoyable ride to regular economy so paying the a few extra hundred bucks help make a long flight tolerable. Oh yea the plane was nice it was the Airbus 300-777 I believe, also this was my first time flying with China Airline and overall it was a good experience ."
Cons: "The stewardess' could of been a bit nicer and a little more attentive . They were just a few screws shy of being robots not the whole crew but most of them from what I've seen. If you didn't speak chinese it was hard to understand the announcements over the intercom from most of the crew in english, but hey what do you expect it's a chinese airliner. Other than that it was a decent ride."
Pros: "Seat, service, entertainment."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seating is fit only for the wee people"
Pros: "Fueron muy amables en el aeropuerto y en el avión"
Cons: "La atención de las personas a cargo"
Pros: "The food was shockingly good! Also, loved the service."
Cons: "A fold down foot rest would be very helpful."
Pros: "Had seat open next to me"
Cons: "Delays on afternoon flights East create all sorts of problems; fewer options the later the arrival"
Pros: "There were a few hiccups with the overall flight process, but the crew was very friendly and informed everyone in a timely manner of the situation. There were also good snacks. Also, flexible baggage policy, which was great."
Cons: "The boarding situation is odd and less organized or structured than any of the other airlines I've flown with."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we missed our connection. Wondering why all the shuttles were parked and unavailable when you knew there were connection s that were tight."
Pros: "Food was great. Especially the ice cream."
Cons: "I had no idea there was a gate change in Atlanta but I’m sure that’s out of your control."
Pros: "yes crew were very good"
Pros: "I like flying Delta. Make you feel comfortable and at ease."
Pros: "I got home alive."
Cons: "The crew was surly. The flight was delayed. We received little information about the delays."
Pros: "great crew"
Cons: "Plane very late. Boarding was chaos"
Pros: "Flight was overbooked!!!! How dare you overbook your planes? If you do that, get new plane!!! People loosing time and money.. 9 people couldn’t get seat on the play they paid for... tomorrows flight is same sting... this is last time fling delta... and we are silver medallions... who fly a lot!!!"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked!!!! How dare you overbook your planes? If you do that, get new plane!!! People loosing time and money.. 9 people couldn’t get seat on the play they paid for... tomorrows flight is same sting... this is last time fling delta... and we are silver medallions... who fly a lot!!!"
Pros: "Pilot and his ability to maneuver the turbulence. Also variety of snacks."
Cons: "Felt hot in the plane."
Pros: "The movies offered were decent"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat I sit down after they squeezed us all in like sardines and come to my surprise there is no window in my aisles it had been covered up in plastic . First making my area narrow than all the other seats and between the plane leaving late and the terrible process of loading people on the plane . Delta airlines was all about the up sale from charging for every bag to charging for internet ,food so on and so forth. Also one bathroom in the middle of the plane ? REALLY ? Out of tissue , paper towels , and tissue one hour into the flight . What in the Hell is going on with this airline ? Won’t fly with them again ."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Not enough leg room in seat"
Pros: "very fast boarding , attentive , and easy to figure out"
Cons: "seats cushions"
Cons: "Every thing was excellent"
Pros: "Thankfully I had an Aisle Seat so I could move around a bit. Every seat was taken and it was like a sardine can."
Cons: "Very little leg room and of course as soon as we were in the Air the person in front of me reclined his seat all the way back so the Monitor was only a few inches from my face. This was my single major complaint. The food was not great but typical of an American Carrier. The foreign airlines do better on food. The last time I went to Europe I took WOW, the cheapest budget Airline and the leg room was MUCH better. You would think Delta could do better."
Pros: "No problems occured"
Cons: "Takes so long to board"
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "I didn’t have anything negative to report regarding this flight."
Pros: "codeshare by China Southern"
Cons: "codeshare by China Southern"
Cons: "LATE ARRIVAL from Amsterdam. Missed my connecting flight to Atlanta at 5:30pm. Changed to 6:35pm "departure" Still departed late and arrived in Atlanta at 9:00pm+. I should be home by then."
Pros: "Everything was really great"
Cons: "I can’t no say anything bad"
Cons: "There really needs to be a way the airlines can better make seating assignments. I was in a window seat and the woman in the middle seat was so large that her arms took all of the arm rest and some of my seat area. Even crossing my arms I was unable to not have her arm up against me."
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays... first class ticket from BOS to MSP got me a 6 hour delay and a middle seat in econ main cabin at the back of the plane. Delta you suck!"
Pros: "Clean bathrooms and great refreshment choices"
Pros: "Seems like people that work for Delta are too old and too comfortable. Don’t want to work nor do they appreciate customers. Gate agent in SLC complained she was the only one there and could not help. Tried to send me tohelp desk which would have made me miss my flight. Flight attendant couldn’t move my back pack in bin did not tell me she had a bad shoulder. She should not be working then if she can’t lift a small backpack. Omg"
Pros: "Delta provided great entertainment options and it felt like endless food and drinks. The seats were also a bit more spacious than usual"
Pros: "Snacks and drinks were yummy and very appreciated. Entertainment was great. Tons of shows and movies and all for free. There was also free iMessage only WiFi which was enjoyed while messaging friends and loved ones while in the air."
Cons: "For the amount of passengers boarding, they started the boarding process way too late which resulting in a delay taking off. The entire boarding process felt sloppy, disorganized, and hectic. They allowed passengers to board that were seated at the end of the plane while some 1 was boarding, causing tons of congestion. The boarding process was the slowest I have ever experienced in all the flights I’ve been on. The crew was ok, but slightly snappy/rude like typical New Yorkers. The flight from ft. Lauderdale to New York was much more pleasant."
Pros: "Awesome selection of movies"
Cons: "The seats are too close together, they do not recline far enough and the leg room is minimal"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Kayak should know that. I got about 15 message s from you about a flight that was cancelled 24 hrs ago. That is not helpful."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "All was good."
Cons: "For a 3 hour flight no onboard entertainment. Such a let down"
Pros: "Crew was nice and accommodating"
Cons: "Even though it’s economy- it feels like the seats have gotten even smaller!"
Pros: "Food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't leave on time."
Pros: "The staff is very friendly. Most pleasant airline I've flown with."
Pros: "All the staff are sincere in serving. It must be a direct result of the great management at the top. If the employees were unhappy and rude that also would be a direct reflection of the management. I use the same flight often and let the staff know I appreciate them."
Cons: "Snacks are small, but delicious cookies."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats Oddly shaped overhead bins, unable to put standard sized bags overhead, meanwhile they fit in planes of other major airline companies such as American Airlines. No food options, only sweet biscuit which contains soy and milk."
Pros: "Very comfortable plane, 4 snack choices, friendly crew."
Cons: "It was all good, except that the charging stations were difficult to figure out since they were out of sight under the seats. I had to have the flight attendant plug in my charger."
Pros: "We stood on the ground due to weather, which had nothing to do with the airline itself. Keeping this from jading my point of view, the airline stood within the standard of what is expected of a good trip. Food was good, and the choice of movies, shows, and games helped the time pass. Staff was friendly, and checked bags were ready rather quickly."
Cons: "The number of updates telling us we are going nowhere, was a bit excessive."
Pros: "Had a great experience on my flight. All on time, and connections were great."
Pros: "Flight Attendants!"
Cons: "When flight arrived late, the plane then required maintenance. After boarding, we were told the fuel vehicle was out of fuel. A small fuel truck was then called in, and it failed to operate. The Captain made a decision to deboard due to outside temperature with little air-conditioning...amd mid-deplaning...fueling was complete amd passengers were told to go back to seats. Flight Attendants were amazing throughout this incompetent ground crew ordeal.!!! Captain was Great as well...his effort kept all informed and sought the best possible outcome for his passengers!!!"
Pros: "I had 45 minutes to transfer planes in Atlanta and made it in plenty of time even though it was far. plenty of information given regarding incoming flight and departure. Boarding was also easy."
Cons: "The engine noise in the plane was so loud I couldn't watch a movie. My gluten free meal was awful and tasteless. I would have preferred yogurt and fruit instead of the chicken and vegetables with a rice cake."
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Delta employee who drive shuttle to connection stopped to drop off a passenger and proceed to chat w other workers thereby getting me to my gate late and missing my connection and getting me to Florida almost 3 hours later than planned. Agents at desk in JFK were rude. There was another Delta employee also on the shuttle who was the only one who seemed to show concern. He alerted the driver, called the boarding gate and led me to it."
Pros: "Daughter's first flight and the crew really made it a special experience for her."
Pros: "They offered water and snacks It was quick"
Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."
Pros: "Over all was okay, but when we all boarded the plane, they last minute said the pilot would be late, and delayed our flight for almost 2 hours. We were almost late to our next flight in Minneapolis to Raleigh which was also pretty upsetting. But, the service was decent, we didn't order any food besides the free complimentary drink & snack and the entertainment was very good. There was a wide range of films, shows, and podcasts to watch."
Cons: "Management was very bad- Delta screwed up really bad"
Pros: "On time Clean airplane Smooth ride Friendly staff"
Cons: "The attendants could have been more hospitable"
Cons: "2,5 hours delayed. Econ seats are tiny with zero legroom."
Pros: "Fair space"
Cons: "Head steward with an attitude"
Pros: "Not much, plane was full and felt like a sardine even after paying extra for more room"
Cons: "Air Canada is trying to grab every nickel it can wring out of flyers"
Pros: "Ease of flying right from and to home"
Cons: "Mostly everything"
Cons: "Plane delayed 1 hour and a half. No compensation."
Cons: "The customer service was disgraceful. Air Canada has set the bar very, very low."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Zone 5 boarding even after I had pre checked in online."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Clean plane."
Pros: "That they give you ear phones"
Cons: "Delay 1 hour"
Pros: "good services ."
Cons: "evry thimg on time"
Cons: "No TV"
Cons: "We had a 5 hour delayed flight. We received no notification that our flight would be delayed so we were stuck waiting on the airport for 5 hours, which forced us to cancel evening plans with friends that night because the flight landed in Vancouver at 3am the next morning and we didn't get to our Airbnb until around 4-5am. The crew seemed disorganized."
Cons: "Arrived 1 hr 15 min late."
Cons: "Baggage hasn't arrived after 45 minutes"
Cons: "Your worst nightmare. Lost my luggage and 24 hours can't even tell me where it is. Complete incompetence."
Cons: "My experience with red-eye flights is that the lights go off, the crew disappears and everyone tries desperately to get some sleep. Not so with these guys - lights on and crew regularly pushing the drinks cart down the aisle. And a lack of free snacks as well (not even pretzels??)."
Pros: "The comfort was much better than I expected from an airbus a320 and even though the in seat system was slow it was nice that there was option on a short regional flight."
Cons: "It would be nice if there was at least a snack boarding was a little chaotic. They should use the PA system."
Pros: "Email notifications for checking in and delayed"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not enough space for over head compartment."
Cons: "The landing"
Pros: "We were already delayed by alot"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "1. Boarding arrangement was very poor. 2. No zone number on our boarding passes. Although we were seated in seats 22,23, we were automatically pushed to zone 5 and forced to board last. 3. My wife and I were assigned two middle seats in two separate rows. 4. We were forced to check in our cabin baggage saying that there was lack of overhead space, but when we boarded among last passengers, there were a number of empty overhead bins. We could easily have saved 45 minutes in Toronto airport without having to wait for our bags."
Pros: "Quick fast and no bother"
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Delayed as usual for AC"
Cons: "Food in terminal 2 closes early - should stay open later since many flights are still leaving."
Cons: "Lavatories didn't flash properly. No tap water"
Pros: "None I like"
Cons: "Crew - no one onboard seemed happy, didn't see anyone smile at all, not a happy place. Food - tasteless, for the only meal they offered transatlantic flight was total thumbs down."
Pros: "Your service was good."
Cons: "The outcome was not. They would not allow me to board the plane b/c I didn't have a valid passport. I grew up in Canada & over the years have crossed the border in both directions & never needed a passport. Could you be more diligent in letting people know this."
Cons: "It is unacceptable for a big airline company not to include any complimentary meal for a five hour flight. Even low coast companies include the meals. First time I see that."
Pros: "Yes, I like it"
Cons: "We could not book for large group, so we have to separate"
Pros: "Modern plane, space, good service"
Cons: "The pasta was not good and the piece of sugary bread for breakfast was also not good."

Cons: "Plane Seating space is so crowded & leg room space too small"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "The seats were too narrow."
Pros: "I always sit in the upper deck of the A380. The 80 tourist class seats are much better than the configuration on other planes. The service is great and personalized. CS's food always amazes me with its quality."
Cons: "Like every other commercial airliner, the seats are not large enough and don't recline enough. It's not about the leg room, it's about the shoulder and hip room."
Pros: "The flight attendants were attentive.. food was ok.."
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Cons: "Great airline. Was surprised at how much space the seats had and the movie selection was awesome. Didn’t have the food so can’t comment on that."
Pros: "It was clean and they provided a warm meal"
Cons: "Taking a bus to the aircraft"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind despite not having much to offer the economy customers."
Cons: "There was no way to charge a phone or electronic device. I had set up my phone with hours of movies and tv shows that I could watch on the plane. I thought that this was truly unacceptable to not have the option to charge a device for a 15 hour flight. There was an in-flight entertainment system, however my sound did not work so I could not listen to anything and there was not options for english subtitles. There were also no current movies or shows available. I was very disappointed in the options for entertainment on such a long flight. I am only 5'4 and I found my knees hitting the seat in front of me when they were reclined which was a majority of the fight. It was very uncomfortable. Food and drink service was far and few between, I hate bothering them for water but there was enough available or disseminated throughout the flight. and Not sure if it was the food, the turbulence or a combination of both, but many people were nauseous and vomiting on the plane. There were not bags readily available for those people to vomit in and the back of the plane and lavatories ended up being out of service due to uncleanliness."
Cons: "Seat uncomfortable. Limited service btw meals. Some offers of water needed"
Pros: "Everything is ok"
Pros: "The space"
Cons: "I still don’t have my luggage and I’m coming home. Awful"
Pros: "Love that everything is included. Food, drinks and entertainment. The crew were great and nothing was too much trouble."
Cons: "Boarding of the A380 was ridiculous. We were lined up well ahead of boarding, then moved to another line, then moved again. Once we were lined up we had to stop and start, other people were pushed to the front again and again. This could have been solved by leaving one lane free for people sitting upstairs, or 'preferred' fliers. Instead everyone was pushed back and had to wait. I've never seen an aeroplane boarded so badly and we ended up being some of the last people on the plane. Badly organised and just plain awful."
Pros: "Plenty of legroom at emergency exit aile without extra charge"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the entertainment was plentiful. I had a coach window seat and was able to sleep for a solid 7 hours or so without being uncomfortable."
Cons: "They ran out of wine and didn't have any snack option available (even for purchase) between the two meals that were served. The food was bad the portions were small for a 16 hour flight."
Cons: "1).I requested VEGAN-VEGETARIAN FOOD. No Food was without Fish, shrimp, salmon.My wife and I stayed without food. 2). My wife and I requested for WHEEL CHAIR. No wheel chair was provided to us. 3) The Stewards were very poor in English conversation, and it was a very uncomfortable feeling of talking to people who are staring at you as if you are from a different planet."
Pros: "The flight was calm, though that's at the mercy of weather but taking off and landing was very smooth for a big Airbus. Easy to board ans staffs were great and courteous."
Cons: "The food wasn't bad but not on par with other airlines. But not bad."
Cons: "I tried to change my reservation because of a medical issue . I was not able to make the change . Because of discrimination towards non chienese . I had to purchase a new ticket ."

Pros: "Confort and ubeatable entertainment selection. The menú should be updated. Staff was a bit absent through out the flight."
Pros: "I would say it was excellent, except for the food which is kind of not the great, but with the airfare rate, i could no longer complain. I would recommend it to my friends."
Cons: "Not much to add, that was already said. The sits were mostly hard board, very uncomfortable on such a long flight. The food , ha, definitely, unacceptable. And the morning meal, was given too short a time to eat it. Bad for one's digestion. Very hard if not impossible to reach them for check-in, either via web, not phone. Left only to the counter check-in and hope for the best, as specially, when you have more then one travelling."
Pros: "Big new plane (A380)"
Cons: "Mainland Chinese have a VERY different concept of personal space and respect for others when compared to Westerners. This is evidenced by the manner in which the restrooms were used (disgusting after 1 hour of a 14 hr. flight) AND how they literally "attack" the food / beverages. Obviously it is a Chinese airline so best to accept this behavior and deal with it! You have been warned!"
Pros: "The plane was always on time and the crew was always ready to help. The food was also good."
Pros: "We had to be rushed from one terminal to an other. The airport seems scattered."
Cons: "Read above..."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Business class sleeping arrangements were good."
Cons: "Very light on choices in entertainment especially movies."
Cons: "They lost one of my bags with lots of very important stuff in it and despite the tracking code they have no idea where ti is and have conceded they will probably not find it and refuse to reimburse me for the extra fees I had to pay for it saying "the extra fee was not a guarantee you would receive your bag". Worst airline I have ever flowm"
Pros: "Everyone is very helpful."
Cons: "There was no WiFi offered. This really needs to change"
Pros: "on time , aircraft,"
Pros: "Courteous and helpful crew."
Cons: "The seat was hard and looks dated for an A380 makkng my trip uncomfortable. Food was ordinary."
