Then it waited until everyone on the other buses had boarded before letting the four of us to get off the bus - we were the last four people to board the plane. Happily there was still space for my carry on, but it was not what I would call priority service."

Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The planes are very old and lack basic comforts. As a business class traveler, the food was really below the standards of other airlines. Also some flights did not have individual entertainment systems. Finally the business class lounge in Beijing was the worst Ive ever seen. The food was basically instant noodles and small pastries. The whole experience was disappointing."
Pros: "Very short flight at end of trip, so ok enough flight."
Cons: "I have to give lowest score on food and entertainment because there was none. But the flight was so short that neither was expected."
Cons: "2 hr. delay, missed connection to Manila, nightmare to get baggage, transfer to another airline, 9 hrs. longer than planned travel due to delay in departure from Manila, supposed cold weather had frozen water lines???? Not the first time delayed flight, caused problem for connection. should make Manila connection layover 4 hrs. not 2, since the flight from New York/Newark ALWAYS late."
Pros: "There was free water"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, poor communication, almost a riot at the boarding gate when flight became delayed with no explanation"
Cons: "The plane was dirty. Entertainment system at my seat was broken. Food is nearly inedible. They are still flying outdated 747s that are literally falling apart and show their age. The plane is overdue for new paint and a refurbishment or just retirement. This is the typical experience with Air China. Fly Korean Air, ANA, JAL, or China Airlines for a better experience."
Pros: "Everything but entertaiment on board. Very vas audio."
Cons: "My bags were lost!"
Pros: "At least the flight attendants were able to communicate with passengers in English."

Pros: "Price is good. And the airline service is also great."
Pros: "Nothing, it was a horrible, never to be repeated experience compared to JAL, Asiana, and China Airlines (Taipei), which I ususually take."
Cons: "Inconvenient gates, landed in LAX near the beach, 40 minute bus ride to Tom Bradley. Horrible, inedible food. Basically I will never take this airline again and strongly recommend that their low-ball pricing is like a mean trick; and not worth the low cost at all. I should have known, "you get what you pay for"."
Cons: "Sit in the flight for 2h waiting for taking off"
Pros: "That it's the last time in which I buy a flight with Airchina, :)."
Cons: "The service. But, I am happy that I will never fly with Airchina again. :)."
Cons: "Beijing airport was under construction. There was long delay."
Cons: "Poor customer service and flight delays"
Pros: "Everything seems to go smoothly, the flight was good and we landed on time."
Cons: "They serve the same food for both meals, and on all other flights. I got sick of chicken and rice, pork and rice, and noodles. The seats are the most uncomfortable I've dealt with on an international flight. And my luggage didn't make the connection for my Beijing-NY flight, so I had to deal with lost luggage after waiting at the baggage claim for a long time. Luckily, I live in NY and could have my luggage delivered later that night. Other people were not so lucky and were told FedEx would get it to them 4 days later. However, having said all that, I feel like you get what you pay for, and I got an incredible deal on this round-trip flight."
Pros: "The flight was short. They played a movie because we waited about one hour on the tarmac to take off."
Cons: "My luggage was lost. Because I don't speak Chinese, I am not sure if the crew was being truthful with me. Apparently it was my fault the bag was still in Beijing, and not in the final destination. I had to retrieve the bag the next day from the airport which was just kind of a production. Unclear, and not the most apologizing staff about the lost luggage."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude."
Pros: "Flight attendants and crew were very helpful"
Cons: "Entertainment needed. Training for staff regarding mobile devices."
Pros: "Large and clean. Beatiful stewardees."
Cons: "Not departing on time, delayed a hour to depart. But I understood because one of guest was sick while boarding."
Pros: "Loved the price. The seat back entertainement was good. They had a good selection of movies, shows, music and games."
Cons: "The seat back entertainment touch screens aren't the best quality and would freeze a lot. Even though there was a good selection of entertainment, it wasn't really enough for stuff for round trip (13+ hrs x 2). I would recommend a few more movies. The food was okay, but not great. They came around with carts with drinks but would only pour about 4oz at a time and maybe came 5 times. Not enough for a 13 hour flight. Also, Chinese got preferential treatment for sure, and rude to Americans. Had a connecting flight which we were late so tried to get a flight attendant help us off first. Nope, just said there wasn't enough time and we would miss it and would have to get a flight the next day. Thankfully there were enough people taking the connecting flight they delayed it and we made it, but they do not care..."
Cons: "Every time the entertainment was paused for an announcement, it turned the volume WAY up, so loud that it hurt my ears and every time i had to tear the earphones off. I understand not wanting to let people mute the announcements, but minimum volume should be around 30-40%, not 70%"
Pros: "So much space for the legs!"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2 hrs , saw the pilot coming after 2 hrs , why were the customers not informed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed then after many hours got to know that the flight was cancelled. . It was terrible and didn't expect it.due to this my plans and work for effected. Now after my arrival to USA I received my laguages after 2 days. when I received my laguage Many of my stuffs are missing. I'm highly disappointed with this service. I'm never ever going to use air China again. I won't recommend to my friends too. A very bad service"
Pros: "It was on time and relatively cheap. Grateful for nonstop itinerary. Love the interactive map available to see flight over the pole."
Cons: "Food poor. Breakfast was same as dinner...rice and not good tasting chicken in a gravy. No other snacks or meals in a 14 hour flight. I departed hungry. Very few movie selections for Westerners. Cold air in cabin made me pull my blanket over my head to stay warm, despite wearing a jacket."
Cons: "Boarding. Service."
Cons: "Really poor information updates re late take-off at Beijing... one security guard stole a twenty from a kid during search during transfer security screening"
