Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The team was very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The movie selection was not the best for US movies."
Pros: "They assigned me the last seat abutting the bathroom in the back of the plane. It was the smallest seat with zero leg room. The seat itself had zero cushion. And because the back of the seat is against the wall of the bathroom it could not be leaned back either. The entertainment screen is so close to my face I could not look at it directly. I was probably the only Black guy in there. I wonder how they found me that seat. It was a Nonstop flight, I will fly China Southern every chance I get because I just want to get from point A to point B. But, I'll be asking more questions about my seat assignment before accepting it."
Pros: "I was really impressed with the care and attention given to us by the crew. This was a very comfortable flight and I am looking forward to flying with China Southern many more times"
Cons: "There could be more diversity in the entertainment"
Cons: "They did not have a vegetarian option available to me on board. They should have offered bottled water for a a flight this long to avoid dehydration. Also my entertainment system was faulty. It didn’t offer a wide selection of movies and halfway through the flight or completely shut down. I couldn’t even listen to music or track the flight. Staff also had difficulty understanding my English so I gave up on communication."
Pros: "Very good and attentive service. Best price on many of their routes compared to the other airlines."
Cons: "Website needs to be improved. Need better selection of entertainment."
Pros: "Flight attentendents are excellent"
Pros: "The service was outstanding. They had a person waiting as we got off the first flight to guide us to the second flight. The stewardesses were attentive and outstanding. The seats were comfortable, the food and movie optons were top notch. I can't recommend business class highly enough."
Cons: "I loved everything about this flight!"
Pros: "price, considering have the price are tax and fees, it's a great deal. plane, new equipment, 777 with modern entertainment crew. amazing how they been over backwards to satisfy a few disgusting rude middle aged male Chinese travelers."
Cons: "stereotypical Chinese travelers. rude abusive loud, they warn their reputation layover, 6 hours for flights between major cities seems excessive. hub in gaungzhou stinks"
Pros: "Flight was on time, boarding was smooth, new equipment, crew very efficient, polite and helpful."
Cons: "The food was mediocre at best."
Pros: "Excellent management, well cared & hospitality"
Cons: "Liked everything, keep it up for its prosperity."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Food wasn’t great but not bad"
Pros: "They only delay 30 minutes instead of leaving longer"
Cons: "All the international flights departing and arriving in Guangzhou were ferried by bu. It's very inconsiderate for customer with luggages. Customer service representative was unhelpful at lost and found and at the airport terminal. It's always another department's problem."

Cons: "I liked it nothing wrong"
Pros: "The staff of China Southern made our trip a great experience. We have flown with this airlines several times, and will continue to do so in the future! Thank you!!"
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Pros: "They did work with us to help with the seating."
Cons: "We flew from NYC- JFK to Siem Reap Cambodia and back with the airline. On the way back I was unable to choose seats online prior to boarding. We were placed in Row 63, which is the LAST row on the plane and does not recline. For a 15 hour flight this seating should not be used. It is completely unreasonable to think people will be ok not reclining, and honestly the seats felt more straight up than the normal seats. After discussing it with the crew for half an hour on a full flight they were able to move us to other seats. But were unable to move us to business or first for a discount. End point: these seats should not be used! It was so miserable even thinking we might get stuck with them. And if they do stick people there you should be comped, that was not worth the same fare everyone else payed for coach."
Pros: "The flight attendants are good, but the check in crew needs to be more friendly and helpful, with the growing economy boom in china, we will have an increase in tourist to China which cause the air line to be packed, so they need to be much more helpful when attending customers!"
Pros: "Food and bording good"
Cons: "For the intertainment need more move asian drama and bar service not enough, comnication is poor smile is jero with crew members"
Cons: "The food was awful. I felt sick after eating it and still feel sick after many hours. Being on a 15 hour flight we don't have much choice but to eat some of it"

Cons: "Delayed for seven hours and sat on the plane for four hrs before taking off"
Pros: "I had a long layover in China, was coming from Nepal and the airline provided me with a great hotel room, transportation back and forth to the airport, even a museum pass and city tour. Wow, that's a first!"
Pros: "Having flown internationally often, but never on China Southern, I was more than impressed and please with the complete experience."
Pros: "I was worried about such a long night flight with an airline that I wasn't familiar with but they were extremely polite and helpful, the seats were comfortable and a great entertainment selection. To everyone who complained about the food... It was not bad, actually better than most airplane food I have had. And I didn't hear a single person have anything negative to say about it as they polished everything off!"
Pros: "see above."
Cons: "n / a"
Cons: "Didn't even get to take this flight due to the airline moving departure forward FOUR HOURS and NEVER INFORMING US. Most miserable travel experience I've ever had."
Cons: "Lots of pork and beef"
Pros: "Price, service and personal attitudes of the crewmembers."
Cons: "Less online services available."
Pros: "The inflight crew was accommodating and friendly. If I were to chose this airline again I would take a shorter layover"
Cons: "I had a 13 hour layover in Guangzhou and was told a voucher was offered for a hotel and a meal. I figured with this layover I could possibly see the city while I waited but a damper was put in those plans. It took me 3 hours to figure out how to acquire the voucher due to not having any assistance from the staff or them not speaking English. The airline basically chose the hotel for me because it would have been another hour wait if I decided to change the hotel. Upon arrival at the hotel I met another passenger that had been in the city for 2 days back and forth to the airport because her connecting flight was late to Guangzhou and the airline had no space on the other flights. The wifi connection at the airport was poor and I was unable to use the food voucher at the time I arrived as it could only be used for breakfast. Their is no wifi offered on flight and the food was okay."
Pros: "whem I arrived on the aircraft I requests two business class seats which was available and we got it, two other passengers came requesting up grades to business class and was told that no seats are available. This was when boarding was complete."
Cons: "When the aircraft took off, I saw air hostess taking turns to sleep in business class seats that was available. Their was three seats available which was kept back for the air hostess to use personally and passengers were refuse the up grade."
Pros: "I liked the foot rest, pillow, blanket and head rest. The entertainment had a great variety of movies, which I enjoyed."
Cons: "The boarding could've been more organized. I only ate one meal out of the three that were served and the noodles were bland. The TV's should have a brightness option."
Pros: "Great airline . Super nice staff they had English speaking flight attendants unlike other Chinese airlines I've dealt with. Excellent service!"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The food was good, good choices in movies and comfortable but take your eye pillow and earplugs to sleep because the lights on the cabin will come on when serving food and wake you if you are sleeping."
Cons: "Kinda rude flight atendants, poor food and warm beer And no alchoohol,"
Pros: "The flight boarded early and left on time. The entertainment provided was good."
Cons: "There was hardly any service from the in-flight crew. I've had shorter flights where the crew comes regularly with water, at least. This crew did the least possible, it was worse than flying in the US on an American airline."
Cons: "They kept one of our luggages back in China... 'Security' reasons. They took my shells I picked from the beach. Who does that???!"
Pros: "I was bumped from economy to business class. This was a unique experience in which I got to travel as a VIP. Economy class with China Southern is better than domestic U.S. carriers, but business class was something else."
Cons: "I did not have a complete ticket until approximately 24-hours before departure and only after I called Airfare.com literally for weeks, and then finally told them I wanted to cancel. Then all legs of the trip were suddenly booked, but seats were not confirmed. I was charged a $450 cancellation fee despite the fact that they did not do their job because I was unable to trust anything they were doing, and subsequently booked my flight direct through Delta. Please keep in mind I purchased the ticket on July 3, 2016 and Airfare.com was unable to provide me a complete ticket until the night of August 16, 2016 with a August 17, 2016 departure date to China! I can honestly say this was the worst travel booking experience I've ever had."
Pros: "I liked that although I didn't request special meal via phone, some fight attendants tried to accommodate me. Others were not having me. I liked that I could look at detailed maps of the flight route. There were excellent movies to watch to kill the long frigging flight."
Cons: "The seat space was limited. Some fight attendants seemed off or in bad mood."
Pros: "Service, transit hotel"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Few people know you have the option to upgrade with China Southern airline onboard. You can get a much more comfortable seat (premium economy) for 150 to 250 dollars. It's totally worth it for long international flights to China!"
Cons: "The android systems used for media and games kept freezing and rebooting."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The plane was filthy. The pillow they gave me was gray for example. I had to wipe everything down first. The biggest surprise was that there was no internet on any of the four flights I took with this carrier. It's 2016 how do you not have internet available? I would not fly this airline again until they can compete with Western airlines."
Pros: "On-time flight. Served food was okay. Entertainment syatem was above average. Flight attendants were nice and attentive. My entertainment console was not working and they lent me a tablet as a replacement."
Cons: "Not the airline fault but some passengers acted selfishly and not thinking about other passengers."
Pros: "The price and everyone gets their own TVs."
Cons: "They are completely unorganized. You cannot log into their website from the United States to pick your seats because their website is degraded. There is only one phone number and it is in China. Furthermore, expect to wait 30+ minutes for someone to answer the phone. If they do, it will be very static and they don't speak English barely at all. Expect layovers in China (we had two layovers in China on our flight from Tokyo to NYC). There was mass confusion with Chinese immigration workers because they didn't speak English and understand we were simply transiting (for which no visa is required). For the love of God, PRINT YOUR ITINERARY AND BRING IT WITH YOU WHILE YOU TRAVEL. It's the only thing that got us through immigration. We had to recheck our bags and go through immigration and customs several times on our way from Tokyo to NYC. The food is barely edible. And worst of all, you are joined by very pushy and rude Chinese people who spit and hack up their phlegm the entire time. Expect to hear those gross hacking noises from all around the plane. Lucky me, I was seated right next to the leader of the hacking pack. I had to beg a flight attendant to find me a new seat. I would have upgraded to premium economy (as I did for my outbound flight) but they don't let you do it at check-in. Unless you can access the Chinese version of the website, they make you wait until you get on the plane, at which point almost all the premium economy seats are taken (they were in my case)."
Pros: "Patient and helpful crew"
Cons: "A lot of the passengers from Beijing to New York had obviously never flown before. No gifts or toys for kids to quiet them down."
Pros: "The service was excellent"
Cons: "The service was excellent"
Pros: "Staff extremely courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Wanted vegetarian food - not available. Terrible food in economy. Ugh."

Pros: "Crew was nice and attentive."
Cons: "Food was bad."
Cons: "My flight from Shanghai to Beijing was delayed more than 4 hours, which let to missing the connecting flight from Beijing to JFK. Then the nightmare started. It was after midnight when we arrived at Beijing airport. The staff offered no help with re-booking and hotels. I had to spend the night sitting on the cold floor, hungry and anxious till the ticket counter reopened in the morning. The morning staff were even worse than the night crew. They were extremely rude, unprofessional, they lied and insulted customers. Very disappointed with Air China. Will file an official complaint."
Pros: "Not near as bad as the reviews I've read. Service was good and seats comfortable."
Cons: "food isn't great (but is it good on any other economy flight), nor is drink service (they really limit when you can order wine). Poor entertainment."
Cons: "The personnel providing misleading informatiin such as: we don't have flight. Charging unrefundable $75 for the rights to be in a waiting list and promising, the surchRge is refundable . Cancelling flights at the lazt moment for lack of personnel"
Pros: "My wife fell down at the departure hall of PVG and had a small cut on her face. We got immediate medical attention and coordinated assistence from the ground personel and air crews (CA1884, CA989). We are very grateful for the exceptional help."
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."
Pros: "I requested a special meal which was very good. My flight was comfortable and on time."
Cons: "I would have liked to be able to check in earlier. I arrived at the airport 4 hours ahead and was only able to check in 3 hours ahead."
Pros: "Crew is rude. No English spoken."
Cons: "Shutting off electronics 45 minutes before you land is ridiculous."
Pros: "Pleasant, uneventful, and meal service."
Cons: "No individual entertainment, but comfortable seating. Good trade off."
Pros: "The screen was fault."
Pros: "This time they have someone stood at the international transfer area to help with passengers who only have a short time to board the next flight. My friend told me that she didn't see this kind of arrangement when she was transfer at Beijing a few years ago and she missed her flight and have to wait for the next flight which was 24 hours later."
Cons: "It seems okay at first. After we landed and by the time I get to the baggage claim area and realized that one of my bag was missing. No one provide any explanation as to why this happens. I have to fill out the Property Irregularity Report and specifically told them to send my missing bag to my work address if my bag is found. The agent told me that before they deliver my bag, they are supposed to call. Two days later, their delivery person came to my work place and do not want to wait for the security guard to call up to get me and took off with my bag. He did not call to inform me of the delivery. I left many messages regarding the incident and no more return my calls or attempt to contact me. They really have very bad customer service. 4 days later, by accident, I spoke with one of the agent and she said they can re-delivery my bag. I found out later that they delivered my bag to my work place at 5AM in the morning. Of course I am in bed and not available to receive my bag. At the time of writing this post, I am 9 days without my bag and I don't know when will I ever get the bag. I will never fly with this airline again and will not recommend to anyone."
Cons: "They tried to screw me over with my reservation from the beginning. No notifications of any changes to my flight or anything. Missed my initial flight going home. Paid another airline to catch my transfer flight and was denied the ability to board. Had to pay for a brand new ticket which I am currently going to dispute with my creditor. They are not American friendly at all. Felt targeted the entire time."
Pros: "Overall a very good job for a low budget flight. The boarding and unboarding process was efficient. The crew was extremely pleasant and helpful, they were constantly monitoring and cleaning the restrooms."
Cons: "The entertainment choices were limited. This was my return flight and since less than half the movie choices (19 total to choose from) were in English (the rest in Chinese with subtitles too small to read on that tiny screen) by half way thru the flight there wasn't anything left to watch:(. The food was very bland, the "shrimp w/noodles" turned out be 6 tiny shrimp with elbow macaroni noodles with absolutely no taste at all (very disappointing). Although there was drinks left in the galley between meals there wasn't any snacks, unlike my first flight from JFK to Beijing, were there were some cookies and fruit also available. Finally, there was an incident with about 5hrs left in the flight were drinks were being served. I had just gotten a glass of orange juice set down on my food tray. No sooner the women sitting in front of me stood up and spilled the entire glass of orange juice in my lap. I call on of the flight attendants for assistance, she was eager to help, unfortunately there wasn't any towels or paper towels or absorbent anything available for her to work with. Fortunately I did have 5hrs to dry!"
Pros: "Don't expect much and you will be delighted by what you get!"
Cons: "I could not choose my seat. Assigned a seat near the back (last row with 3 chairs) and a small plastic box took up most of my legroom."
Pros: "Nothing..missed both connections, air china staff were not anywhere in beijing..i was told counter was closed at 10pm and to call a lical reservation number to reschedule my flight for the next day? Seriously..i paid 5k for this ticket..my bags were checked in to my final destination but at the third destination i was told there was no transfer service ( at guangzhou) snd that i needed to claim it and check it back in even though i cleared immigration at beijing..no one speaks english and will send you in circles around beijing airport..bad bad bad"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The staff was well mannered and did their job well. The price was good so I wasn't expecting the best...`"
Cons: "The seats.They felt a little claustrophobic and the headrest pushed out so far that my head was down to an uncomfortable level.I know they offer better prices by getting more people on board, but the small seat space and laughable incline made the long journey a bit more uncomfortable than it should have been."
Pros: "Nice plane. Appreciated priority boarding for my son and me. Also lost my phone right before boarding and someone was sent to look for it."
Cons: "Some members of crew were very helpful while others were straight up rude when I asked for assistance."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "The staff was always rude, no matter which flight I was on."
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "The God was meh I would have enjoyed more authentic Chinese food but it was hot so that's a positive"
Pros: "The best part about Air China was the low price. Everything went smoothly. We were late departing so I missed my connecting flight to Japan. I had a 16 hour lay over. I recommend paying more attention to the total hours. I mistook 9pm for 9 am ! The airport in Beijing was a fine place to read.."
Cons: "The flight was totally booked - the plane was full. 90% of the movies offered were Chinese in origin."
Cons: "Getting in contact with Air China for seat assignments was like pulling teeth. They also wake you up every 3-4 hours for drink services and food. The food is nasty, if your sleeping they should let you sleep instead of waking you up."
Cons: "They lost my bag it had all my souvenirs from my Japan trip"
Cons: "When I ask crew need one pillow, She told will check, and then no answer. Maybe she forgot ！"
Cons: "Entertainment system stopped working, all available movies were at least 6-7 years old, food was terrible."
Cons: "No food for purchase. Rude service, lots of rules on board. Small movie selection."
Cons: "The flight crew seemed to be a bit racist. I'm American, they're all Chinese. They skipped me while serving food and beverage, skipped me while collecting garbage, and would not come when I asked for help. I finally was able to get some food when the kind man next to me noticed what was going on and spoke up about it. In contrast, 5!3 man on the other side of me kept elbowing me periodically throughout the flight, and placing his feet in front of my chair directly where mine should go. This was extremely annoying on a 13 hour flight. I will never fly with air china again."
Pros: "Quick boarding, good service from flight crew"
Cons: "Limited entertainment offerings, quality of food can be improved."
Pros: "As the standard for the Asian airlines, the service was impeccable, the flight attendants were on call, and did their very best to make sure everyone was satisfied What really impressed me, before the flight and during check-in, my friends of 4 were all placed as close together while still upgrading our seats. I'm pretty sure we just asked if upgrades were available and the guy at the counter gave them to all four of us complementary. Outstanding way to get return customers. ."
Cons: "The food was par, it wasn't bad by any means, it just looks too much out of a box, however, I will not complain as the flight price, quality and service were beyond expected."
Cons: "When I received my laguages after 2 days from the airport my stuffs were missing. Who'll be responsible for this ???????? Highly disappointed with the service by air China. We spent our money to travel in your airlines. We gain noting lose our time , things which were in the laguage , plans got ruined. I'm sorry to say this I'm never ever gonna choose air China or never gonna recommend air China to my family and friends. Disappointed with air China!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Flight itself was good. Comfy business class seat, good food, cabin attendants good. On 777, try and get middle seat so no one needs to climb over someone else to go to the toilet if there seat mate is sleeping."
Cons: "Air China's customer support in English is abysmal. You'll need a Chinese speaking friend and patience if their flights are delayed."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "I was in a window seat and I could only rest one leg at the leg rest in front of the seat. I was with my girlfriend and she was seating in the middle instead of the window seat and the flight attendant told us that we should not switch seats. The food was okay."
Cons: "Seats were terrible, food even worse."
Pros: "Entertainment and drink selection was decent. Plane was pretty new with large personal monitors and usb charger"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 3hours. Boarding process was a nightmare. there no was line, people were pushing and was almost like a herd of cows just trying to squeeze through the gate asap. Staff did not do anything about this and just watched. Food was terrible, my salad was defrosted which meand the vegetable was wet and soggy. Although the planes were new, the seats were verr narrow"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and there was no flight delay in all legs of the journey. The price is the cheapest I have ever paid for for the same destination. And I was surprised to find online entertainment even though I could care less about the qualities of the available movies."
Cons: "The food. I am comparing it to Singapore Airlines, which I used to fly with to the same destination every year. I suppose they are not comparable given the huge price difference. The crew. Again, I am comparing it with SQ. They are quite brusqe, not as attentive, and not as pleasant."
Pros: "The slippers"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive for the most part. Although they did keep mistaking my ipod for a phone and was told multiple times to shut it off. They were just doing their jobs."
Cons: "The choice of movies could have been better and the food was not the best. No vegetarian options offered."
Pros: "Good price."
Cons: "Very hard to change seat. No one seemed to have "access" to change my flight, not weeks before, not the day of, not at checkin and not at the ticket counter. No phones allowed ON during flight. Not just airplane mode. No phones on allowed? Weird."
Cons: "The flight was late. The crew was rude and yelled at everyone in Chinese. They crew gave very small amounts of water (servings the size of a shot glass) and were rude when you asked for more water."
Pros: "air china is pretty good"
Cons: "The crew was extremely unfriendly, rude even. I was in business class and offered one drink upon boarding and nothing more until after they served the meal. When I asked for a second glass of wine, I got a glare and a scowl. Never again. Worst business class flight I've taken. Entertainment options limited for a 13-hour flight. Food was barely edible. Just as on my outbound flight and even though I was in the first row of my section, the flight attendant skipped over me to take every other passenger's food order including the gentleman sitting next to me. I was the only non-Asian in my section. On the outbound I thought maybe I was imaging things. When it happened again on the return I knew it couldn't be a coincidence. Disgrace and absolutely unacceptable."
Pros: "Food is okay, being served twice. Could use a lot more variety, I was served chicken and rice every time, and a handful of salt."
Cons: "Boarding started on time but was incredibly unorganized When asked if I could switch seats because there was a set of 4 year old twins next to me, they didn't try to accommodate. They screamed so much throughout the 15 hour flight that they completely lost their voices during landing. Nothing was made to try to prevent this, or to help us suffering around them. Throughout the flight the AC continuously kept dripping ice cold water on to me, and when I mentioned this I was met with a shrug. When arriving, my bag was lost, and no one was there to answer questions. It has yet to be returned to me, and I have yet to be compensated."
