Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great Flight seats comfortable and Flight attendants very attentive. Food was good."
Pros: "Timely departure, snacks throughout trip, not a full flight"
Cons: "Not a great movie selection"
Pros: "The flight arrive on time. The airline did all they could to accommodate late passengers and even held back about 10 minutes because of the long lines at customs. Despite holding back they still manage to get us to our destination on time."
Cons: "The entertainment was lacking severely however since this was a Sunday morning 7 AM departure most everyone on the plane slept so it was not an issue."
Pros: "work hard on the cabinet to give us a good environmet"
Cons: "Xian airport walk is unnecessarily long."
Cons: "Making the flight. Air China and the Beijing Airport made it very difficult for everyone on a variety of flights to get to their destinations."
Cons: "It should be illegal to have that short of layover in PEK that is impossible to make. They also made us stay on the plane for 5/6 hours waiting to take off with no explaination and very little food or water."
Pros: "Nothing amazing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over an hour ,"
Pros: "crew and general experience was great"
Cons: "baggage mishandling"
Pros: "It was an "average" flight"
Cons: "Food sent me and others to the bathroom---not good"
Pros: "Same as my first flight"
Cons: "Same as my first flight, but the delay this time did not cause me to miss a connection as my travel terminated in Bangkok."
Cons: "Its a piece of junk"
Cons: "The seats had a foot rest that, when not used, keeps hitting your shins and reduce the already narrow leg room."
Cons: "arrived in Beijing and flight was delayed - unknown departure time. no English information available. waited 2 hours to get info"
Pros: "Sometimes the flights are half-empty, meaning you can get a full row to yourself if you're lucky."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped for an international flight and half of the foot space was taken up by an installed box of sorts. The "foot rest" also dug into my upper shins the entire flight (I had it in the upright position, but I have long legs). The food was really bad, basically inedible. Not just on this flight but on all the Air China flights I've been on, and both food options are usually identical other than the option between fake chicken or fake beef or seafood. The flight is super structured (referring to my 13-hour flight), that you're not allowed to sleep when you want because they have such a regimented schedule of when to turn on/off the lights, etc. On multiple occasions the flight attendants have turned off my tv monitor while I'm in the middle of a movie just because it appeared I was sleeping. With my 1 hr layover in Beijing that ended up being less than 10 minutes due to a delay, I made the rush through security quick enough, but my bags did not and needed to be shipped to me a day later at my destination. Air China purposefully schedules flights with such short layovers, putting customers' travel at risk. Not a major issue, but the crew surprisingly also had pretty limited English on the Beijing-Washington DC flight. For connecting flights, I have no expectation of English language ability, because it doesn't involve travel to an English-speaking country. However, if you're flying to the US, you should expect to communicate in English well, at least one of the cabin crew."
Cons: "The flight was late and caused everyone to have to stay overnight. I hope we get our luggage"
Cons: "I have to change schedule but cannot do it on-line. I ended up purchasing a new ticket. I try to cancel the ticket but cannot do it on-line."
Cons: "We were so delayed—gate number didn’t show up until after we were to take off—missed connecting flight to HNL. They cited ‘weather’ for our missed connection but had never said anything about this in Hong Kong when we were waiting hours for our plane to arrive. We were told to get temporary visas so they could put us in a hotel that night. We found our way to the meeting place only to be told there were no more rooms. The worker was completely rude and just ignored us. We were stranded all night on the departure side, waiting to check in in the morning to a flight we weren’t even sure we were rerouted on. We were given 200 yen (which is nothing) and had to go thru Tokyo, and wait another half day to catch a connection to HNL. The whole trip took 36 hours instead of 16. I’ll never fly this airline again. Something similar happened to me flying China Eastern. Honestly avoid all Chinese airlines, unless you want to spend a lot of time arguing with people and at least 2-3 times the travel time. (Not to be confused with Taiwanese airlines like China Airlines which are much more dependable and hace way nicer everything.)"
Pros: "Boarding, and unboarding is excellent, there are multiple plane doors which speeds up the process."
Cons: "The media selection was limited, and on one flight, it was broken."
Cons: "My luggage was lost. Connecting transit was very hectic."
Cons: "I didn't know when I was supposed to board or what the process was, and the crew wasn't helpful to me when I asked. Maybe language barrier?"
Pros: "I am incredibly happy with my Air China experience. Crew worked diligently to create a good experience, and was kind when I was having difficulty communicating. The food was surprisingly fabulous! Authentic Chinese cuisine and tasty. Several passengers did not review the regulations and were pretty rude when Air China crew told them to turn off and put away cell phones. Crew handled this well."
Cons: "Bathrooms were not very clean. I didn't realize until halfway through the flight that we needed to get our own beverages and throw away our own trash (different than the other airlines)- would have appreciated this being announced. I was confused during boarding process about when to stand and when to board, but watched the people around me and figured it out. We took off late/ landed late, but I was able to make my connection in Beijing without any stress so was happy."
Cons: "Small plane ,narrow aisle"
Pros: "Bathrooms were clean. Foot rests were comfortable."
Cons: "Chairs did not recline much for such a long flight."
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: "My bags were lost!"
Pros: "Food was really great"
Cons: "4 h delay on first flight because of "technical issues", doesn´t make you feel safe especially when red lights turned on while landing Crew speaks only basic english, could not explain what kind of food is packed in the only chinese written outside No real milk for coffee on board Entertainment/films are almost only in chinese or only 2 episodes of a tv show"
Pros: "The food was good for airplane food."
Cons: "It makes no sense to not allow the use of any electronics during take off and landing. My E reader doesn't even use a cell signal, but I couldn't have it out. Also, not allowing cell phones at ANY time during the flight, even in airplane mode, is ridiculous because tablets, which can have cell signals, are allowed. Air China is just frustrating."
Cons: "My main large suitcase did not make the transfer; plane was late arriving Bejing"
Cons: "Staff was not really helpful"
Pros: "Attentive gate staff who made sure there were no issues with my seat and made sure to seat me with my husband. Honestly just a long coach flight, maybe don’t fly coach if you can’t handle being a little uncomfortable. I was expecting much worse from some of the reviews. Bring your own food though. Good selection of films."
Cons: "Terrible online check in."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Airport in lounge was a waste of time, no wifi, terrible coffee, no showers."
Pros: "it was a very comfortable flight and the crew was friendly and helpful. We were traveling with two small children, so saying it was a comfortable flight is very high praise."
Cons: "It was VERY annoying that we had to keep all cell phones turned off the entire flight. We preloaded games for my 5 year old son on an old iPhone 4 that is not connected to the internet or any cell service or bluetooth or anything and he was not allowed to use it the entire flight. Very frustrating for him and us. I wish this information was clearly provided on the Air China website when we booked the tickets so we could have planned accordingly."
Pros: "The flight was inexpensive."
Cons: "The bathrooms were disgusting. Toilet seats had deeply etched crusty yellow stains. My pillow had someone's long hair on it and shunks of shaggy lint (I wouldn't use an airline pillow, but still a revolting sight). Air China has a strictly enforced prohibition against using cell phones (even in flight mode) so if you haven't brought a laptop or tablet you're stuck with their limited entertainment system options."
Pros: "The attendant gave my my water even though I fell asleep. Also the flight boarded on time."
Cons: "AC wasnt on during the boarding process."
Pros: "Many meals and movie selections which helped."
Cons: "No leg room."
Pros: "A comfortable flight, with one of the best flight attendants I've known (he spoke excellent English but was also really helpful and engaged in a completely authentic way). Great food too."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment was a bit limited, and boarding was delayed."
Pros: "Air China got me on the earliest flight the next morning, which was a China Southern fight. It was awesome that they were willing to change the airline and cut their losses to keep me happy. They also put me up in a hotel overnight."
Cons: "My fight from JFK to Beijing was delayed so I messed the flight from Beijing to YNJ."
Pros: "The flight attendants were polite and attentive. Most spoke English or made some effort try. Flights were on time staff was super helpful. Meals were great!"
Cons: "Seats were a little cramped of your a taller person like me (6'2"). Very few English options for on flight entertainment."
Pros: "For $250 less than Cathay and China Southern, the price was very good. Nothing fancy but it got the job done reasonably. There were about 40 empty seats. I was on the window seat. There was a lady on the isle seat. The middle seat was empty so it gave us some room to stretch. Food was basic but was sufficient. Wine for dinner but not breakfast. Restroom was spacious and clean. Landing was perfect. Luggage went to carousel before I got there. Very fast. Very good value."
Cons: "There were a few passengers in a tour group constantly broadcast their conversations to the entire cabinet. Maybe they were very excited about the trip but they did not have to wake up other people and ruin their moods. This is probably not the airline's fault but it went to the overall experiences."
Pros: "Very good staff!"
Cons: "Entertainment was not interesting."
Pros: "Food was pretty good, flight attendants pretty nice"
Cons: "Only overhead entertainment, an hour delayed"
Cons: "I could nos use my phone even though I took off the SIM card I did not get a good explanation"
Pros: "Reasonable food. Old chairs but OK."
Cons: "Crazy rules - can't use phones in airplane mode to read books? So so food. Terrible entertainment."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for several hours before we took off - "because it was a busy day"."
Pros: "Not much - the crew were reasonably friendly"
Cons: "An old aircraft with very uncomfortable seats, really bad food and a broken entertainment system"
Pros: "I like the small screens for tv, games, and movies."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, bad food, and way too many interruptions about turbulence. They could have just said this once, but they would repeat the message in Mandarin and English 3 or 4 times in the span of 5 minutes. We get it. Just say, "Please stay seated" and leave it alone"
Pros: "Good choice of food, both American and Chinese."
Cons: "The crew seem to be a bit more kindly to people who speak Chinese and less so to English speakers."
Cons: "Delay, bad food, no entertainment."
Pros: "It was just a normal flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the departure time was pushed back a few times--our total delay time was about1.5 hours."
