Pros: "Beautiful plane, clean and well serviced, unlike American carriers"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour on the tarmac in Taipei with no explanation. I was told there were no aisle seats and when we finished boarding I could see that the attendant on the ground had not been truthful. I did get a bulkhead aisle seat after the doors were closed, but I would like to know the truth from service people."
Pros: "China Airlines does an excellent job at doing their best to accommodate passengers that do not speak the native language. During my whole experience with China Airlines, I really felt I was a valued customer."
Cons: "The only problem with the flight was out of China Airlines control. A shuttle bus to terminal had issues and we had to wait onboard for another bus. The crew still did a great job keeping us informed of the situation."
Cons: "Unsat. I asked for my flight to get changed it did not happen I had to by a whole new ticket. Waste of my time and money"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, decent seat size, decent leg space, lots of movie and TV options"
Cons: "Outdated entertainment system on a330, food is lackluster, overhead bins in a330 can be a little hard to reach. Maybe not an issue on newer planes? Tight aisles. Leg space could be a little bit better. Non adjustable headrest (height wise)"
Pros: "Flight was delayed which made me lose my connecting flight to austin. At the counter I was told that they had rescheduled but that I was late. I was late because customs took long and the flight from Taipei was 30 minutes late. So it's not like I was wasting time. I did not appreciate that the blame was placed on me in the way the counter people communicated with me. I noticed that the counter woman, and the supervisor did not speak to me at all. Not even to say "let me find out" or "sorry for the inconvenience" but both did speak to other customers that were of Asian Descent. They communicated both in English and Chinese. The young woman that booked the flight for me (different one from counter woman) was decent and attentive. Sherry who was the third woman I dealt with when I needed to sort the baggage issue was very attentive even explaining to the supervisor why It was the second time I was back at their offices. She went out of her way to make sure I saw my bags delivered to the UA luggage. But again, I am very disappointed and can't help to notice that other passengers received basic cordial treatment when I was blatantly ignored."
Pros: "The service was awesome from booking through to boarding the journey and disembarking.Would recommend to family and friends."

Cons: "Food was not that great. I expected more in premium ecconomy"
Cons: "There was a delay with this flight or the previous one and we weren't told much"
Pros: "Flights were on time no delays. Considering it was a really long flights w connections its great that they are on time. Cabin attendants excellent!"
Cons: "Boarding at SFO was confusing since attendance gave wrong information so that we kept sitting to wait for our turn. And it ended up kind of disordering. Airline needs to improve this small process while customers waited for so long to board."
Pros: "Overall, polite service staff"
Cons: "Only few open counters for check in unlike at San francisco"
Pros: "Great atmosphere on the plane and very clean."
Cons: "I would have liked to have more vegetarian and vegan food options on board the aircraft."

Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Hard to understand English and didn't exert enough effort to let the connecting flight wait for 5 mins. Had to extend half a day doing nothing in the airport instead."
Pros: "The crew didn't nag that I can't watch a movie on my mobile, even during take off and landing. That's highly appreciated. I also could tallies my GoPro during the entire flight, no negative comments from the crew, unlike many other regional carriers here."
Cons: "The IFE screens are very small and dated. There are big IFE boxes under the seats limiting your feet real estate. Food was mediocre at best."
Pros: "Entertainment system and the interior of the plane cabin."

Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "plane was too small and there was 1.5 hour delay departing"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was great and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Maybe we needed to specify this earlier, but there were no vegetarian options offered for the meals. It's minor, but it'd be nice to have that option when we're asked instead of needing to arrange it beforehand."
Cons: "Fatigue from job"
Pros: "See above for overall summery both AC and Jaz."
Cons: "Not sure which screwed up on bags."
Pros: "staff was great checkin at the airport was a breeze and love the 2 checked free luggage for international flights. food was mediocre but what do you expect, I'm just glad we got 2 meals and 2 snacks. great touch."
Cons: "only issue was the fact the online checkin was unavailable to us for some reason which basically left my girlfriend and I sitting in separate rows in between 2 people for 17 hours. entertainment was also pretty lacking with only a few movies available."
Pros: "They seemed like a good airline. It was my first time flying with them, and I got upgraded to business class on the very first flight of my trip. What a great first impression! They're quite service oriented, with attendants speaking multiple languages. The in-flight magazine was good but not available on every plane. The food was usually pretty good, and the live map was convenient."
Cons: "All of the flights were late (I had 6 of them on this trip, all thru Air Canada, and not a single one departed on time). All of my layovers were long, except one, which was planned to be about an hour but ended up being less than 30min. That one was a pain: had to go through Canadian customs and then run across the Toronto airport, but thankfully my next flight was still boarding - and ended up running late because they had to de-ice the plane. One of the flights ran late, and as we were reaching the gate a passenger felt the need to yell racist/ignorant comments at a fellow passenger who wouldn't sit down, and then the flight attendant - overall that was a real shame."
Pros: "The boarding started one hour early to allow passengers to board on time."
Cons: "A flight stewardess did not respond to a call twice as if the call light was not turned on."
Cons: "left with 2 hours delay because the fuel was not ready. Then we had an unexpected landing in Vancouver to change flight crew. That meant an additional 2 hours of delay. Finally we accumulated 2 more hours of delay. The final total was 6 hours of delay for no clear reason."
Cons: "Food was served and drinks only arrived after you finished your meal. This happened for all meals."
Pros: "The full experience"
Pros: "Good boarding.Easy check in."
Cons: "Food! Not appealing. Did not eat more than a few bites."

Cons: "Flight delay more than 1 hour ! Took very very long to board Poor choice of movie. Too few, Too old"
Cons: "Rather than notify the passengers that our flight would be delayed prior to our arrival at the airport, we waited at the gate for several hours."
Cons: "Our direct flight to Montreal was canceled due to mechanical issues. The rebooking process was discombobulating and we ended up arriving at our destination after the rerouting that was stressful and ensured that we lost a whole day of our vacation time. Our flight back the entertainment system in our seats did not function."
Pros: "put us up in decent hotels gave food vouchers the crew didn't do anything to make it horrible Large selection of movies/tv on board comfiest seats out of all the major airlines I've flown"
Cons: "The flight kept getting delayed bc of mechanical problems, and then eventually cancelled. They rebooked everyone on new flights, but it took an extra stop in Toronto before getting us to Montreal. Once it was rebooked for the morning, it took off a little late. Plus the pretzels they gave us were stale. This was the first of two flights I took this trip that had mechanical issues, so they obviously need to fix their planes better or get new ones, because two Air Canada flights in one day that have mechanical problems leaves me worried that the planes aren't in optimal condition. It took me over 24 hours to get from Tucson, AZ to Montreal, Canada when normal travel takes less than 8 hours including layovers."
Pros: "Onboard attendants were pleasant"
Cons: "No apology for lateness, flight boarded late, took off 40 min late, arrived 35 minutes late but we sat at gate waiting for someone to open it ?!, then another 15 min before bags started to unload Ridiculous but indicative of airlines You are not their valued guest or even their customer, you are a problem that needs to be solved and are consequently met with preloaded annoyance and a readiness to dismiss, placate at the best of times but definitely not please, impress, sympathize or satisfy. There is no evidence that it's even in their lexicon- not a part of their recruitment or selection process or training, ever! They're main focus and only positivity is saved for themselves. There may be a long line of concerned and anxious travelers but their priority is getting coffees for the battle ahead! They break their focused indifference only for each other and enthusiastically leave their post to satisfy each other's needs and attention. This has got to change! Why do we put up with such awful service for which we are the paying customer? Why are we, their customers, not valued? This airline makes record profits, provides less, charges for everything and increasingly delivers bad service, sometimes offensively bad! It doesn't cost more to hire a customer centric pleasant person, or incorporate guest experience into training or at the very least be friendly and smile! What if an airline just did that?! They'd differentiate themselves and develop a positive customer centered culture. Don't we deserve that, at the very least?!"

Pros: "Better plane than previous"
Cons: "Had to be rerouted to Calgary because I missed my connection"
Cons: "The flight attendants on this flight did NOT do their job. If they are there to ensure a safe environment for the people on board, they completely missed the boat. I was in row 45. Two families were on board with their 4 very young children. For the entire 8 hour flight, 3 of these children disrupted the entire section of the plane. They continuously played in the aisles, stood in the seats, kept their seat belts unbuckled, threw objects, and one blasted his iPad at maximum volume. When I asked one flight attendant to ask the family to get the child to lower the volume on his iPad (it was 4am; people were either using their ear buds, or had their screens turned off), they complied with the request for 30 minutes, then resumed at full throttle. I can honestly say, it was one of the worst flights I have ever experienced in 57 years."
