Cons: "Food not so great. Flight was packed with almost every seat full. Beautiful Airbus 380 aircraft. Overall, okay for the money. Would use again for the economy price."
Pros: "Overall, the service is good."
Cons: "There is still room for improvement. Flight attendants need to be better trained in dealing with passengers. Spend the time to "listen" thoroughly instead of saying "OK I know" & then fuffill the passengers request. Sometimes, little details matter, even they did the job right. Try to do better!"
Pros: "China Southern's people in Guangzhou are helpful and attentive. The boarding process goes as well as it can when boarding a plane that seats over 500 people. I enjoy flying on the upper deck of the A380. Even though the entertainment system went out late in the flight, it couldn't overcome the helpfulness, and friendliness of the flight attendants. China Southern's flight attendants are the best in the world."
Pros: "I really liked the layout of the seats in Economy. Very comfortable. Didn’t seem like a huge crowded section, and very good service and movie selection. Also bathrooms were very clean. Food service also very good!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive."
Cons: "There is no order of who gets in first in the line. Everyone just lined up even when there was a sign about the seat number. You can hardly understand the PA system when they are calling the passengers to board. Not enough restroom for the economy flight."
Pros: "Roomy, comfortable and quiet. Choosing to have dinner after a 5 hour sleep was great"
Cons: "Food choices wasn’t the best."
Pros: "Good service, friendly cabin crews and on-time flight. Great price. Relatively spacious seat in the Airbus A 380 flight."
Cons: "no USB for charger which is almost standard in most other airlines; limited drink selection; restroom not as clean or as often cleaned as some other airlines"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "Crewmen at the luggage/bags scanning were very rude. Our flight from Manila to Guangzhou was delayed by an hour or so. With all the pressure we were already experiencing and rushing to get to our connecting flight, here comes these crewmen in charge of scanning our bags we're all shouting at us to rush. The delay was not the passengers fault."
Pros: "The price was hard to beat."
Cons: "Food was pretty grossand the website was TERRIBLE to use. To sign in to check in for the flight was absolutely impossible. I called and it kept ringing and then hanging up. Since I wasn’t able to check in I couldn’t check in till LAX and they were so rude about it. The website does not function well for English speakers."
Pros: "i was really impressed. again. my flight over was smooth, and flight back nice and easy...the staff is helpful and courteous, the food is good and enough.And the team they have to help with the long layover was fantastic."
Cons: "no complaints really."
Pros: "Airline provided wheelchair for my injured friend and priority boarding"
Cons: "airline lost my friend's luggage and is only offering $15 per kg for the lost items"
Cons: "baggage didn't make it; will be delivered in 2 days"
Pros: "Hospitality was good except food. For long route frequent snacks suggested which was missing."
Cons: "Food, beverage, water, liquor supply and bumpy ride."
Pros: "Again - flight was on-time, boarding was quick and painless, entertainment options were extensive, cabin crew was accommodating and efficient, food was fine ... NO COMPLAINTS!! What more can one ask for?!?"
Pros: "The flight was long but its was in a good area to sit in"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment"
Pros: "Everything went well."
Cons: "I didn't like the crew too much. There were many empty business class seats so I moved to a window and took my pillow with me. They came and took the extra pillow back! Bizarre behavior. My vegetarian meals were not good at all. Couldn't eat them. 2 identical meals for dinner and breakfast."
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "Food too little"
Pros: "The pilot was great"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "China Southern Airlines flight was very clean, very friendly, and of very good ticket price."
Cons: "The Kuangzhou airport should be upgraded. Many electric plugs were not working. And it's too hard to get wifi usage authorization, as the passport scanner did not work most of the time."
Pros: "Excellent flight experience and value. Crew was exceptional and professionally friendly."
Cons: "Long had no vegetarian choices other than snacks."
Cons: "The seats and legroom in the A380 were among the most uncomfortable I have ever experienced in an airplane. Not sure who to blame, China Southern or Airbus. Stiff foam and hard, no movable headrest, curve did not match my back, knees hit chair in front. I had just flown EVA airlines on a new 747 (I think) and had no such problems."
Cons: "I fact that though I have Elite Plus status in the SkyTeam alliance I didn't have an upgrade and people who have no status were given upgrades! Also, I was not given the h boarding pass for the last leg of my tire; I had to leave th secure area and get in line to check-in for that last flight. Again, zero benefits for being SkyTeam Elite Plus even though thhe flight was a China Southrn codeshare with Virginia America."
Pros: "na"
Cons: "na"
Pros: "i was very comfortable the entire journey of my travels"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seats hard. Seats narrow. Food not hot."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "I liked the selection of movies, the staff was polite, and the flight was on time."
Cons: "The seating was cramped and the food was almost inedible."
Cons: "on the return flight the headphone female jack doesnt connect well so the sound is terrible. i had to use my earphone but the sound only one side. the food is not as good the depart flight"
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Flight was an hour and a half late, almost causing us to miss our connection in LAX. The seat cushions on the china southern planes are the worst I've ever sat on, and I've taken many flights in my day. The food was pretty mediocre. Overall a lame experience."
Pros: "Always, the level of service must be considered in light of the price--and CS had an excellent price. Food was acceptable, nice blankets."
Cons: "CS serves primarily a Chinese speaking clientele, so they do not need to attract staff with high levels of English. You are flying on a Chinese carrier, not one with a global feel. Service is more than adequate with respect to call button etc. But meal service is "clipped" (for lack of a better term). No extras, warm beer, wine but no liquor. No snacks.They can do better, if they want to compete with the gulf airlines. Baggage took about 45 minutes to arrive at LAX. Very glitchy entertainment system"
Pros: "I ate food"
Cons: "The food was bland, no flavor, inadequate in service. Kept asking for water/soda and took forever and choked at one point"
Pros: "Room and comfort were a bit above average for coach. Crew was pleasant, food was good, lots of entertainment choices, flights were punctual. Guangzhou airport is modern and has amenities EXCEPT western periodicals."
Cons: "Something to be aware of: It's the People's Republic of China. They tell you this in the announcements. You're not supposed to use your cell phone at all in flight, even in airplane mode. Some government inspectors went through my checked suitcase and removed a lithium power pack and left me a note."
Pros: "Good"
Pros: "Someone had booked the same seat as I did and since i was traveling alone they moved me up to first class on my long flight to China. Overall Excellent service!!"
Pros: "Wide seats business class"
Cons: "Food, boarding, poor English"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the boarding process was efficient."
Cons: "The food was mediocre. There could have been a better variety of in-flight entertainment (fewer comic book movies)."
Pros: "Food was excellent, especially the beef tenderloin dinner. Crew was generally attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Initially seat would not adjust. Crewmember was able to fix it though."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "On Sep 14th, I paid on your websites with the confirmation of three airline tickets from Chengdu China to Los Angeles. All the information I provide for each passengers are correct. However, due to the fact that you missed up three of the passengers information, they couldn't check in yesterday. The whole fight to LA was missed. As a result, we had to pay very high price to buy new tickets for the next available fight in order to complete the trip. I'v made four phone calls with your agent, with all records made. 1) The 1st agent confirmed that the information I provided were all correct for each passengers. So she believed there was nothing wrong and did nothing to help. 2) The 2nd agent realized the information were mixed up. But it was too late to let them check in. 3) The 3rd agent confirmed that the issue were caused by your system. He said only the supervisor could deal with this matter. He gave me a number which is not valid. 4) Finally, the 4th agent said you would contact me. No response by now. Still waiting for the response. Very disappointed after all."

Cons: "I wish there was a bigger movie selection"
Pros: "The crew are amazing"
Cons: "Chinese airlines often require you to take a bus at boarding and then carry your suitcases up large flights of steps to enter the plane - this was the case in Xiamen. This flight often is delayed and this was the case. The food was below average. WiFi is free but it blocks google and gmail."
Pros: "In time"
Cons: "Don’t let customer wait long time for gate after landing"
Cons: "Hope to keep departure on time !!!!!!"
Pros: "Attentive crews, food on board - Food on board provides couple of choices of mainly Chinese food. I don't claim it to be extraordinary but it is far better than most of food other airlines provides in the economy class."
Cons: "Lavatory needs a bit more amenities, e.g. hand soaps, etc."
Pros: "Comfy seat"
Cons: "Less salt in the food"
Pros: "The crew was great, and seat was comfy compare to other European airlines seats"
Cons: "Less salt in the food would’ve been better"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and I was happy to get emergency exit row window seat to make the the long flight more comfortable."
Cons: "The food could have definitely been better too many shrimp and fish options even in the morning for breakfast. I was happy there has been a pasta served for dinner otherwise I wouldn’t have eaten the entire flight! Shrimp for breakfast isn’t an option for American folk and the movie selection"
Pros: "Great airplane (787 Dreamliner), comfortable seats, lots of meals, free beer and wine. Great ticket price!"
Cons: "The cabin crew did not really understand english. When I asked something, it was clear that they didn't understand. I had to claim my checked bag and recheck it at every flight segment. No ability to select seats unless it was more than 72 hours before departure."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "The food vegan Movies"

Cons: "got severe food poisoning from the airline food."
Cons: "the transit in Xiamen after my flight from Hong Kong it was 7 hours I have stay in xi amen. The promotion and/or advertisement saying that I have eight hotel for me to rest in Xiamen or a city tour. After I arrived there.all of those was saying nothing provided today. all I can have is leading me to a lough where just seats, tables for passenger to sit there. provided tea, water, Chinese made coke with natural temperature no ice . just sit there for 7 hours to wait for my connection flight to LAX"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "No problems for the price"
Cons: "Ok no problems for the price"
Pros: "This leg was continuation of flight that began in Xiamen. Same plane and crew. 787 Dreamliner layout is efficient, generous legroom and recline is better than American carriers. Crew works as team, fast and courteous. Very helpful and professional, Water offered frequently, trash pick up kept cabin neat, bathrooms always clean. Passenger announcements are clear and crisp is English and Chinese."

Pros: "the order of boarding the plane"
Cons: "food was dry"

Pros: "Clean plane. Left on time. Better than average legroom."
Cons: "Movie selection was virtually all violent related. Nothing the airline can do about the numerous Security checks passing through this Airport."
Pros: "Very good service. I have a bad knee and they did a good job of helping. Long layover is ok, they offer free hotel. Side benefit you can be a tourist for a short time."
Cons: "Lounge could be improved. Does not compare to other Airlines Lounges."
Pros: "No problem with staff"
Cons: "Food is okay"
Pros: "1. Friendly crew and attention 2. Affordable direct flight from LAX to XMN 3. Good timing"
Cons: "1. Seat cushion is too thin, resulting in painful butt after 12-14 hrs flight 2. The in-seat screen doesn't tilt, thus when front passenger reclined seat, the screen is right in front of your face (less than 5-inches). You need to crank your neck down to watch any programming which results in neck pain 3. Entertainment and food have much room to improve"
Cons: "u had to transfer ur luggages even though its the same airline. what a joke? u had to get through numerous security points to get through the airport what the hell?"
Pros: "Complimentary wifi and excellent crew service"
Cons: "The econ seat is too low, when front seater tilted the seat backward, the screen is right in front of my face. Entertainment video screen doesn’t adjust; in other words, it cannot be adjust in angle, causing neck pain over time. Meals are average, definitely different from the quality compared to regional or domestic equivalent. Very sad, considering that Xiamen Air has a good reputation inside China. The restroom is also poorly stocked — no toilet roll constantly"
Pros: "The cabin crew were very nice and courteous!"
Cons: "Couldn't be helped, it was just a long flight!"
Pros: "Price and flight were great. Communicating was small problem. 5 am arrival nothing open so couldn't change money for food, taxi etc. Finally found an ATM that worked. People used their cell phones to try and communicate."
Cons: "Some obstacles with early morning arrival and communications"
Pros: "The flight crew was kind..really hard working.."
Cons: "I was not informed before hand I needed a visa to enter China..Xiamen international airport does not have transit lounge...so leaving on the 6 December from Lax to Xiamen ..I was denied to fly Xiamen so they scrambled last minute an put me on China southern airlines...upon return from Singapore I had to pay for Chinese visa since I was to return through Xiamen...it was a nightmare"
Pros: "I liked the plane. 787’s are the smoothest rides."
Cons: "Xiamen Airlines should be applauded for having a direct flight from LA to Qingdao. But they have a lot to learn about the proper service and materials in business class. Not surprisingly, they have gone for the cheapest way to service the customer. Lot to learn."
Pros: "entertainment choices were good"
Pros: "food is great"
Cons: "check in time is too long (about 1 hour)"
Pros: "crew provide excellent and attentive service. food is good"
Cons: "food could be better"
Pros: "Nice new plane, efficient crew, lots of food ... if a bit bland. Airline provided a free hotel in Ciamen for the overnight."
Cons: "Terrible paper shuffle in Shenzhen getting a require temporary visa, because the leg from Shenzhen to Xiamen was domestic. 2 hours or paper shuffle during which they took away our passports, with no guidance in English about what the heck was happening"
Pros: "Even though the flight was short, a simple meal was served and it tasted great. It was around dinner time but I wasn't expecting a meal. The flight crew was friendly and professional also."
Cons: "The flight landed at an outlying terminal and we had to be bussed to the main terminal. Just a little inconvenience."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly good. I would have expected some of it from a restaurant, not an airline. The in-seat entertainment was functional and had a lot of things to watch and games to play."
Cons: "Nothing really. We have to keep in mind that an airline can only do so much to help us get through flights that are many hours long. This Xiamen flight was about as good as I can imagine a long international flight could be."
Pros: "I was forced to buy a new ticket home, which made me discover how wonderful Japan Airlines is..."
Cons: "How are these people still in business? The only people answering customer service hotlines were from the main HQ who only spoke Chinese and would immediately transfer callers to a line for “forgeiners” which would just ring awhile and then disconnect. Same thing happened for at least 10 different people stranded by cancelled flights, even had people trying to call for me from the US. A travel agency was able to switch my friends flights, only to be blocked at his gate by an uninformed Xiamen agent saying he needed a visa for his layover in China, ultimately forcing him to buy a whole new ticket. Xiamen never answered, reimbursed, or recitified any of this. On the flight there, flight attendants had attitudes and SMOKED IN AIRPLANE, it STANK like an ashtray!!! And the food was the worst I ever encountered."
Cons: "XiamenAir lost one of my bags and has still not found it"
Pros: "Crew, comfort, food, entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding."
Pros: "no regards for customers"
Cons: "no regards for customers"
Pros: "I really liked the space in Business and the priority boardings in Asia. Worth every penny. Food was great. A lil slow on serving alcohol though. Very relaxing trip."
Cons: "Not much. Liked I mentioned, slow on serving the alcohol. You have to push to get a drink."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly, professional and excellent!"
Cons: "The 10 hour layover :("
Pros: "Hostess"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "couldn't book through from Shenzhen yp Guilin. Had to check-in again at Fuzhou and go through security again."
