Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I hated everything about this 8 hour flight. Going to and coming from Toyko. The seats were EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY uncomfortable. I had to keep adjusting my body because my lower back was in so much pain. I ordered a kosher meal for both my sister and I but they only bought it for her.

You would think they could find some combination of a middle & window by moving a couple of single travelers but NO. Kept saying that it was a full flight so no go. It's not like we demanded an aisle seat. Just left a "bad taste in my mouth". Not the ANA service that I am used too."

The turbulence announcement was made once in english and japanese by the auto-plane service followed by the crew announcing it again in both English and Japanese. The same was done with the duty free. The plane pressure also felt very strong and cause discomfort for the wife. The movie selection was solid (but badly organized) and the TV show selection wasn't terrible. It should all be better. Come on ANA! Contact me for recommendations."

Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics.

Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."

Pros: "Newer plane. Dimming windows, upgraded bathroom. Flight crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."
Cons: "Our flight from Nairobi to Lusaka was cancelled for some reason and we did not find out until we happened to log into the website to double check our itinerary. They automatically rescheduled the flight only giving us 25 minutes to reach our next flight...impossible. so, after calling, we were re-booked again and forced into a 13 hour layover in Amsterdam. Our original flight plan had 4 hours. so, because we are a family of 7 with a baby, we had to buy a hotel room to rest, costing us a lot of extra money we had not planned to spend. We contacted KLM for help with the cost but were rejected. We also lost 5 bags somewhere between Chicago and Lusaka, but after 2 days, we received them."

Pros: "Friendly staff"

Pros: "The plane from Guangzhou to Beijing was newer and very well designed business class seats, the convenient layout was exceptional. I think the meal ok but the staff was exceptionally friendly helpful and took good care of me. Also this aircraft had a large movie assortment, larger than usual."
Cons: "I think the meals are the only area lacking, again not easy to have pre made meals that are as good reheated."
Cons: "Everything needs to be improved, they need to learn from Emirates"
Cons: "Occidental snacks could be great"
Cons: "It was hot. Just horrible experience."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "The food was very poor."
Pros: "Lovely crew"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and spoke English. Boarding was timely."
Cons: "The food was the same on the flight to and from. Also was warm, not hot."
Cons: "We paid $37 to check in 1 Baggage and the flight from SFO to Beijing had delivered the baggage in baggage claim area. We had to take Chinese Visa to get to the baggage, even-though it is a transit. We missed the next connecting flight to Shenzhen as it ate up all our time. Now have to travel in the mercy of the airlines for next flight. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LIST THAT "VISA NEEDED IF CHECKING IN BAGGAGE" MISSED ALL FLIGHTS"
Cons: "Air China practices very democratic way (in a bad eay) of boarding the plane, without distinguishing the 1st class, busineas class, and Star Alliance members from the rest of the passengers. The food is abit overly simple, in spite of the short flight - a sendwich wrapped in an alu-foil... And it was crazy cold in the cabin."

Pros: "The seats had more room so it was easy to get comfortable and sleep."
Cons: "Didn't like that there was no one there to answer any questions. The ladies there brushed off anyone who showed up by tossing a paper with a new departure time at them. The didn't even attempt to understand other questions. Plus the flight was delayed an hour."
Cons: "We were never given an update at the gate that our departure would be later. Everyone was standing in line ready to go for about 40 minutes before we finally started boarding. The seats aren’t the best. This 6 hr flight had no entertainment."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Constant and substantial changes to their schedule, Ticketing gave me wrong seat, Flight attendant argued about seating for a Long time and then gave me the seat that I requested.

Pros: "I made it to Bangkok and back safely, no delays, no lost luggage."
Cons: "Old plane, gross stained faded fabric on seats, dust cover vents , dirty tray tables. good thing i brought my clorox wipes. Zero leg room, and of course I had tall people behind me so I was unable to recline my seat. The food was terrible the wine was worse.The food was mostly edible on the way there, but on the way back I barley ate anything. There was only one chicken and rice entree that had flavor. Apparently you can not have your phone on the entire flight, good thing i brought my IPAD for entertainment. The entertainment system was mediocre most of the movies were in different languages with english subtitles. I brought wine from duty free in Bangkok, but it was taken during connection by security in Beijing. Maximum volume that you can bring with you is 100ml. The options were to go out and have my wine checked in my carry-on or they will hold it for 30 days and I could come back and picked it up. What a scam, cause you can buy from the duty free in Beijing and bring it with you."
Pros: "I liked be provided with a blanket, pillow and entertainment system."
Pros: "The airline canceled on both trip and have to wait for next day"
Cons: "The flight from Hong Kong to Beijing delayed . Supposed departed at 8pm , then to 10pm then to 12 finally at 2am the flight was cancelled. Then rebook next day flight, depart at 11am but delay to 1pm. Service customers are not the priority to this company.Aviod to this air China if possible."
Cons: "first flight to China was delayed so the connecting flight to Tokyo was missed. no explanation was given for the delay no food vouchers were available that night they lost my bag in china for 3 hours they brought me to hotel in unmarked bus with no explanation hotel told me that air china would only cover half the cost so I need to pay more or share a room the next day, air china's manager was uninterested in helping or explaining there hotel arrangements food on the last flight was just rice gruel and an aged egg. I am flexible but that's not even considered a meal in china. there is at least salt or pickled things in it. audio ports on plane did not work properly. on arriving home, most of the items in my suit case were crushed (coat hangers snapped, boxes crushed, bags ripped open) my dslr camera batteries were all taken (alkaline based ones) I travel between japan and america two or three times a year for the last 30 years. this last trip was one for the books! not sure where to start"
Pros: "I boarded smoothly and everything was fine there. Just for an international airline, I expected there to be more legroom."
Pros: "I do on line check in for the trip from DC to Beiging, it's good that I got what I wanted to have an aisle seat. Then I do the transit trip at the DC airport counter, they told me that I had an aisle seat, and the baggages were checked in all the way to Taiwan. The truth is I didn't have an aisle seat and my two luggages are lost."
Cons: "I got my baggage after 4 days from landing."
Pros: "Flight attendants were wekk trained."
Cons: "Bathrooms smelled."
Cons: "wouldnt let our entire group on the flight after we all had seats because of a delay in our connecting flight."
Pros: "I was extremely pleased with the flight attendants. They were excellent at all times. Very professional and friendly. I was particularly surprised at their approach to any passenger who could potentially cause problems for the flight or other passengers. I'm American and to be frank, we are total jerks in flight. You tell an American to put away their mobile device and as soon as you turn your back they're back at it. Americans in general are unreasonable people. The flight attendants' approach to solving problems before they have an opportuniy to become problems was a sight to see, friendly, non-confrontational. They brought beverages around at regular intervals which was very comforting. Also, not only were blankets and pillows at every seat before takeoff, but they were fairly decent. Very comfortable. On a US carrier you can expect to be charged extra for any little thing, and so you don't even bother to ask for it. On Air China you don't have to worry about it."
Cons: "On this flight, nothing. No complaints whatsoever."
Cons: "Connect time is too short and I missed the third flight"
Pros: "comfy seats"
Pros: "Cheap, everything worked out."
Cons: "They informed me 3 days in advance via email that my connecting flight is cancelled. No rebooking to other carrier, no hotel. They expected me to wait 24 hours in Beijing airport! Worst: had to try 4 times to call them till someone picked up, 3 times I gave up after 30 minutes (roaming). Very unfriendly handling of case."
