Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "Good land side service (partially because I am Star Gold) and fair on-board service. luggage was delivered faster than expected in beijing."
Cons: "Fair Food and Fair beverage... Air China indeed needs to have some western style food. seat is fair to poor condition; too narrow for me even for a economy class (mind you that business class is not much better). and maybe they should learn about something called "entertainment terminal". you stare at a public, plasma TV for 3 hours without change of programs. thanks for the ancient device. that does remind me what flights could be 20+ years ago."
Cons: "Late No wifi internet said there was Late Had to run through airport to catch connection Bags didnt arrive Now have to wear sweaty clothes (after running for a day or two) Food sucked"

Pros: "Bathrooms were clean. Foot rests were comfortable."
Cons: "Chairs did not recline much for such a long flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants are super disrespectful. They treat you like if you’re in a concentration camp. Besides the planes are very uncomfortable, the food wasn’t good at all either. They give you choices and then they say they ran out and you have to eat whatever they give you. At the end you end up eating a different meat with he same sauce. They canceled the global map view right after we took off and it was actuallly the only good thing about their entertainment screen because it looks like they were made when touch screens first came out."
Pros: "Food was good, crew was courteous, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Some delays, touch screen was not working."
Pros: "The jasmine tea"
Cons: "You can’t have your phone on at all and there is a very limited and bad movie selection."

Pros: "Every crew member was so nice and attentive."
Cons: "There really isn't anything to complain. My flight experience was great"
Pros: "Doesn't matter if your economy or first class. First one to the gate gets in. Good for me because I always fly economy."
Cons: "Typical Chinese service, poor. Will never fly Air China ever again. Only reason why I book the ticket because it was cheap, now I know why."
Cons: "Beijing security was an absolute mess. their security measures were absolutely deplorable. Many people missed their flights. Confiscated my iphone charger that passed security measures twice before them."
Pros: "Plane remained aloft for duration of flight."
Cons: "No seat power but hey what can ya expect at such a low price."
Pros: "Comfort of the plane"
Pros: "Empty plane less than 100 passengers"
Cons: "disappointed with the airports"
Pros: "The food served were good."
Cons: "But there were not much choices for the drink. There was no Ginger Ale or Seltzer water available. Also, there should be snacks available between meals. Passengers get bored if they can't sleep and just watching the TV during the long flight."
Pros: "Flight crew was great, food was good and there was plenty of room to relax"
Cons: "An hour delay due to airport congestion and prevailing winds, but can't control that!"
Cons: "Wverything else"
Pros: "I'm 6'2" and had good leg room in coach. The food was decent and the boarding process went pretty smoothly. Each seat had a power outlet below it (kinda out of sight). Overall my flight was pretty good."
Cons: "The entrainment system was a little bit older semi touch screen (no usb charger). Air china was similar to China Eastern as they demanded all cell phones stay off for the duration of the flight. No WIFi was available for purchase."
Cons: "I don't like the wifi in China. It took me an hour to connect to the internet. I don't like the way that the flight from China to Houston was delayed for too long, and they didn't explain or say sorry"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours that caused the missing of next flight at night. Since they were booked separately, we have to buy another ticket on the spot to avoid staying a night at the airport."
Pros: "I like Eva air better. This was ok, but Eva keeps the bathroom in tip top shape. Air China doesn't seem to keep cleaning the restroom throughout the flight. They seem to run late too which is fine because customs in beijing is slow. Plenty of food, no complaints there."
Cons: "My first two flights were delayed (1st flight from Changsha to Beijing was delayed for 4 hours and 2nd flight from Beijing to Houston was delayed for 45 mins), so I missed my last flight from Houston to Orlando to go home! And! They lost both of my luggages! Now I'm forced to stay in Houston airport overnight to catch next flight to go home tomorrow morning. Air China did NOT help anything! They wouldn't even help me rebook my flight when they know I will miss my last connect flight."
Pros: "Only boarding"
Cons: "No drunks like other flights"
Pros: "the food wasnt bad"
Cons: "delayed 2 hours with no explanation, then delayed on plane for another hour and a half with no explanation. Air china is nothing like flying in the US. they dont tell you anything thats going on and definitely make you feel small in the grand scheme of things"
Pros: "Brand new comfy and clean plane."
Cons: "I would have liked to watch some of the really interesting sounding Chinese programs on the in flight entertainment system, but it did not offer English Subtitles. Something about the service lacks a bit of sparkle. I would have liked to have been offered some of the bells and whistles like a toothbrush or better headphones for the entertainment system."
Pros: "I flew from Houston to Beijing and overall not much to complain about. Flight was on time and boarding was well organized. In flight service was also good and the flight attendants were very nice. Just know that some of them have limited English so don't expect them to understand everything you say which is understandable. I'm sure they wonder why we don't speak Chinese. I ordered special meal which was good and you can have wine in economy if you want. Flight arrived on time. All in all flight was good."
Cons: "Wish we could check in online but for international flights I understand why they need you to check in at the airport with your passport."
Cons: "Chep ticket did not send us any information for the flight .we need to check the flight detail from Google .others did send us the information one day before about the confirm flight and the terminal infor ."
Pros: "Movie selection and food was OK"
Cons: "Flight delayed for four hours because of "weather in Houston". 14 hour flight could have taken off on time and thunderstorms were over well before we got there. Missed out connecting domestic flight and stuck overnight in Houston with no good or hotel vouchers offered."
Pros: "This time Air China were pretty on time for both all the trips I took, in contrast to its constant delay in the past."
Cons: "The food was not appealing. The service of the crew is ok but not too enthusiastic or friendly"
Pros: "By far the cheapest booking cost... but at a cost"
Cons: "Every single leg that was not a code share ended up being delayed. Multiple bookings over multiple flights and date/times were delayed. Worst on-time of any major airlines. So you get what you pay for..."
Pros: "The crew tried to help"
Cons: "1. Flight got delayed, so I missed my connection and I had to stay at the airport overnight. They did it provide a hotel to stay saying the delay was weather related and not their fault 2. Communication skills are extremely poor in Beijing airport 3. All flights were delayed from Air China."
Cons: "Entertainment is poor"
Pros: "The flight had a good entertainment selection. The hostesses were kind. I appreciated that the staff left notes for me when I was asleep during the food service, and that I could still get my meal."
Cons: "The plane left pretty late. My TV screen stopped working about thirty minutes into the flight. It was difficult to select vegetarian options (actually, I never managed to do this successfully)."
Cons: "Same as before. Plus I was not allowed to play games on my phone. All the other people sitting around me was allowed to play on their laptops and IPad but i wasn't allowed to play on my phone"
Pros: "On time. Good service."
Pros: "The Chinese propaganda war film "The Hundred Regiments Offensive" was quite amazing. I had never seen a World War II film from the Chinese perspective, and I honestly never knew that the Chinese single-handedly defeated the Japanese invaders. No help from anyone overseas, just the wisdom of Chairman Mao and his General Peng and Bye-Bye Japs."
Cons: "The Airplane did not have any individual air conditioning vents, which meant it was hot and muggy on board for all 14+ hours from Houston to Beijing. Also, no mobile device usage during the entire flight. And the flight attendants are very strict about that rule. They even have an announcement saying that the use of a mobile device during the flight can lead to imprisonment in China. Weird rules, but I didn't want to test the Chinese authority so I played by the rules."
Pros: "They suggested we use their front row with a bassinet for the 20 mo old to sleep and put all 7 of us together."
Cons: "Very slow in bringing requested baby food. No snacks. Poor desesrts no ice cream."
