Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"

Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and flight was calm"
Cons: "The coffe and breakfast."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Baggage checkin & flight boarding was slow & disorganized."

Pros: "The crew was great. The soecial meal request was hadled well despite oversight."
Cons: "Soecial meal request was made in advance but overlooked. Did not mind it so much as eating less is not a bad idea! To err is human."

Pros: "Onboard crew were nice and polite. Flight was on time (a rarity)."
Cons: "The boarding crew was rude and unpleasant, the plane was boiling hot."

Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"

Pros: "Good for both."
Cons: "Bigger seats."

Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."

Cons: "The air conditioners fan was bad and they had to fix it in London which took over 40 minutes off travel time...we arrived much later than expected in Lagos"

Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight."

Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"

Pros: "yes"
Cons: "not really"

Pros: "The crew were very nice, food was tasty, seat comfortable and the entertainment great as well. Will be flying KLM again soon :)"

Pros: "Crew's hospitality, good music, good destination material, terminal info, good system overall"
Cons: "Less legroom, storage space, bad food, few movie options."

Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."

Pros: "Very personable staff. Food acceptable for airline fare. Ticket price was outstanding."
Cons: "Paid for extra legroom, but very narrow seats not comfortable. Very difficult to sleep. Old plane--could not hear movies and unclear screen. Music sounded OK and choice was good."

Cons: "Trouble checking in regarding a visa issue?.. no other trouble at the other airports.."

Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."

Pros: "Employees were very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were very small"

Pros: "Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling."

Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."

Pros: "Good flight, arriving well on time."

Pros: "The attention and service!! Excellent. It was my birthday and KLM the head purser surprised me with 2 bottles of bubbles and a handwritten birthday card KlM and the crew of this flight thank you very much !"
Cons: "Nothing to say"

Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."

Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"

Pros: "Interior of the plane was clean. Smooth landing."
Cons: "Pilot did not avoid turbulence"

Cons: "You are almost always late!"

Pros: "Arrived early!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed disorganized."

Cons: "Flight departed 35 minutes late"

Pros: "Travel on Crostian Airlines did not pappen. KLM flight to Munich was cancelled and I was rescheduled on Air Setbia to Belgrade, the Split."
Cons: "That it didn’t happen."

Pros: "Food and staff behaviour"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."

Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."

Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."

Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."

Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."

Pros: "Very friendly staff"

Cons: "They stole my money"

Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."

Pros: "Everything. A truly faultless experience!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"

Pros: "was very quick"

Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "old old plane, very uncomfortable. Tiny bad screen made movies pointless"

Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"

Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."

Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."

Cons: "Great flight"

Pros: "I was lucky enough not to be put into a middle seat or next to a stranger during this pandemic."
Cons: "No social distancing and no enforcement of wearing a mask properly. Wearing one on your chin or half of your mouth with your nose hanging out needs to be corrected. Empty seats should be utilized for social distancing regardless of fare. First class and the back half of the planes were practically empty while everyone was in the center. We should have been allowed to spread out."

Pros: "Everything! Staff and service. I like the Free WiFi also."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "Good seats, comfortable w headrest adjustable"

Pros: "Speedy boarding. Helpful crew."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment"

Cons: "The flight attendant that helped passengers in the main cabin was rude, lacked empathy, and lacked resourcefulness. She argued about throwing away a drink that she poured, didn’t care to explain things to passengers when asked i. e. why charging outlets were not in service, and her tone was rude ..."

Pros: "The attendant for my area was amazing. I was in the back of the plane and he was friendly. He helped me look for my power cord. He is an outstanding member of your team!"
Cons: "Nope, this was a great flight!"

Pros: "Boarding process was easy."
Cons: "Different snack options."

Pros: "Trip went smoothly"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was great. Made sure I made my connection. Even tried to get me a better placement so I could quickly exit and head to my next flight."
Cons: "It wa super cold on my second flight. Small plane, rather loud."

Pros: "Landing and take off."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great!"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "The gate crew and flight crew took extra care of my wife, who has MS and related difficulty walking. They showed great care - very friendly and professional. Pleasant experience all the way through."
Cons: "Seats were a little close together, so my knees were always touching the seat in front of me. Not terrible, but not ideal. I'm 6'1" and my legs are a bit long."

Pros: "They seem to have more time for the passengers then other airlines do"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Delayed for some unknown reason"

Cons: "Old, small seats, no tv, no WiFi"

Pros: "We were rerouted through Philadelphia."

Pros: "The crew was very good. The made sure we were informed and helped get people rebooked."
Cons: "We were delayed by about 2 and 1/2 hours. Which I get no one can control a maintenance issue, just made for a hectic day"

Cons: "Flight delays and cancellations."

Pros: "Good communication from the captain"
Cons: "The delays"

Pros: "Great service."

Pros: "Good and entertainment"
Cons: "I have short legs so the long flight was uncomfortable. A stop of some sort would helpnif offered"

Pros: "Late..."

Cons: "Only served half people beverages. No entertainment"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bathrooms didn't work delaying initial departure an hour. Ran to connecting flight and made it prior to door being closed. 12 passengers in total were told that we would be boarded and then were abrubly told none would be boarding our final leg to the Caymans even though our seats were available. Horrible company culture not focused on customers."

Cons: "Took off late from Minneapolis only to announce that there was something wrong with the plane, no explanation as to what but that we had to circle to burn off fuel before returning to Minneapolis. Switched to a flight to D.C. with a connection to get to LGA. As soon as we sat down on that flight an announcement was made that we wouldn't make our connecting flight. Got to D.C. and asked to switch to go into Westchester instead of LGA which we were denied. So changed to another connecting flight to LGA that didn't take off on time. Offered nothing for any of the inconveniences. Etc."

Pros: "Wider seats."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "I left an expensive Bose head set in my seat that could not be found....or did smobody decide it was better in their possession.?"

Pros: "All hope was lost until Greg came to our rescue. We made our connecting flight on time and didn’t have to reschedule the entire trip until the next day- losing out on lodging and plans abroad."
Cons: "The way this flight was cancelled due to weather and couldn’t be rescheduled by anyone at the airport, on the phone — knowing it was due to the size of the plane and the weather conditions. I wasn’t even offered a voucher or accommodation for what I was being told would be a 24-hour delay. That was until we met Greg, he literally saved our trip and our experience with American Airlines."

Cons: "Typical Shanghai ground delays"

Cons: "delayed 2 hrs in perfect weather"

Pros: "straight through flight no connection. Crew was friendly and smiled."
Cons: "I do not like that you have to pay to choose a decent seat. Our flight was slightly delayed in boarding, and was not communicated."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and competent."
Cons: "Airlines have an industry wide problem. They INTENTIONALLY make every part of flying miserable so that passengers will pay anything to make it less painful. For example... if you want to make boarding quicker, build the cost of checked luggage into ticket prices so that you don't have people carrying everything on and clogging up the process. Or use the existing and publicly available research to improve boarding mechanisms... but that would mean you lose an opportunity to squeeze extra cash out of people for 'priority boarding'. This phenomenon is real, and currently be investigated by congress. Call your senator."

Pros: "In flight entertainment options. new, clean aircraft."
Cons: "Seat comfort. All the money spent on aircraft amenities, technology, storage, etc. Why not more comfortable seats?"

Cons: "Delayed flight, moderately friendly crew, moderately comfortable flight, expensive."

Pros: "The flight staff did the best they could for how few of them there were."
Cons: "Flight cancelled, and the gate was understaffed, so it took forever to even get up to the counter to try arranging alternate flights. Also, the Kayak/Webjet tickets we were issued interfered with the process as the airline could not reissue us tickets directly. Moreover, one Kayak & Webjet got actively involved, they even tried to deny us passage on the alternate flights that American Airlines suggested. By the time we did make it up to the desk, everything was taken/full for the next few days & we have been struggling to make our overseas travel even possible ever since."

Pros: "It was nice that I had a seat empty next to me, allowing for extra room. Flight was a little early in landing in Dallas, allowing for extra time for a short layover to find my terminal and gate for my next flight."
Cons: "All was good."

Pros: "Assigned seating, snacks, touch screen media feature."
Cons: "Staff could have been more friendly."

Pros: "The food, in flight entertainment and attention to detail by the Flight Attendants was very good."
Cons: "The personnel handling the front desk at check in gave myself and others bad information about how to check a bag. Which resulted in me being called to the desk at the gate about 30 minutes prior to boarding and being told I screwed up checking my bag when I was just following the instructions given to me. Was then told I had to leave the secure area of the airport, go back to the front to check my bag all within 30 minutes of boarding. when I returned thru the TSA checkpoint they were rude, obviously, but more importantly the flight was boarding early. So you could've 1. told me what the actual procedure is for checking my bag instead of telling me "just leave it by the green lit up check mark then 2. told me at the gate that not only do i need to go fix your mistakes for you but that youd also board my flight early thereby putting me in jeopardy of missing my flight. all i got was a very insincere apology when I complained up front and at the gate about the airline's screw up. i get that you're all human like me and make mistakes but the customer is always right. there was a time in this country when customer appreciation and service were important standards and qualities businesses thrived on. Don't know what happened to those days... Also i should not need to be a first class passenger to get a meal during a flight. whatever happened to meals for everyone? you (all airlines in the US) charge way too much money and provide poor service compared to pre-9-11 days. I dont see how one event can justify the loss in service but the increase in ticket price. you should all get back to what flying should be about: fun and time saving."

Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath. Unable to use the entertainment, as I was unaware had to use my own device, which I had not set up in advance."

Pros: "I liked the fact I eventually ended up in Dallas - that's about the only thing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "Inconsistent service - some customers got cans, some got just a cup with a lot of ice and drink. FAs were uninterested when the drink I wanted was not available. Flight was delayed by a maintenance issue. Overall, a terrible experience."

Pros: "The staff tried to help as much as possible."
Cons: "I called American Airlines as ssoon as I book my trip to set up and make sure my small dog could fly with me. They neglected to inform me their partner, jetstar, does not fly animals. My luggage did not arrive with me. Both of my suitcases were mangled and broken. Items in my suitcases were shattered and crushed even though they were well packed and protected. We got stuck on the terminal in MSP and missed our connecting flight. When we finally arrived the systems were down and could not get new flights or hotels. We were told we could not get hotels and had to argue for an hour. Even though it was a maintenance issue. I arrived a day late and had to take extra leave. The plane from LAX to Tokyo was horrific. I booked a window seat, was stuck in the very middle. There was no way to charge outlets devices. The screen did not work. And my new luggage was also damaged with even more items destroyed."

Cons: "They didn't give my parents who are in their 80s seats together, that's not right."

Pros: "Friendly and prompt service."

Pros: "Pretzels and drinks."
Cons: "The group's for boarding are ridiculous. The back of the plane should board first and so on... the new plane we flew on had the smallest seats we've ever seen. When we tried to board, the crew would rudely say, it's not your turn. We were flying for a funeral and paid a lot for our tickets. We should be treated with respect. One lady said to put our luggage in the first available compartment, then when we tried, another lady rudely said, if that's not where you're sitting, you can't put your bag there. We were embarrassed and when we tried to explain what we'd been told she told us to keep moving."

Pros: "Nothing. Was a lot of waited, the people were mad rough."
Cons: "We had a cup of water and a cookie for a 3 hours flight. The captain put gas at the airport with us in the plane. we waited in the plane almost 3 hour because of a storm."

Pros: "Tv in front of every seat, how far the seats reclined."

Pros: "boarding was well organized and flowed well crew was nice and courteous"
Cons: "Seats seem quite narrow standard fare of biscuits to go with drink"

Pros: "On time."

Pros: "Finally upgraded planes on this route. Dreamliner was very comfortable."
Cons: "Hour and a half delay for a scratch on a cargo door. Glad safety is a top priority but it must have been more this just a scratch."

Pros: "On-time performance, upgrades, staff"

Pros: "Boarding/ticketing/getting off the plane was all super efficient and quick. All the staff was super friendly and helpful. Made traveling so easy and stress-free."

Cons: "My wifi was not working for the entire trip!"

Pros: "Great service, easy boarding, good flight."
Cons: "Cramped seats, like everyone."

Cons: "Air Canada sucks. Not only did they delay our flight by 2.5 hours, it took them nearly an hour to get our baggage claim!"

Pros: "Staff was nice and helpful."
Cons: "No leg room"

Pros: "You got me there without problems. Even the baggage got transferred. Better if seats declined more. I would pay an extra 40 to have a more seat recline."

Pros: "Everything went well From boarding to exiting the aircraft."

Pros: "LITERALLY NOTHING Trashiest airline in the world"
Cons: "Customer service, boarding, check in desk, LITERALLY EVERYTHING WAS 3rd CLASS WILL NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE EVER AGAIN EVEN IF THE TICKE IS FREE WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE AND I WILL TELL EVERYONE"

Pros: "The crew ensured that all my needs were met while on the flight. Truly a pleasurable experience."
Cons: "Nothing... Can't exactly shorten the distance."

Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."

Cons: "Air Canada cancelled my original flight and it was difficult to reschedule. Customer service wasn't great."

Pros: "Crew and flight were great"
Cons: "Not great food, but that's ok."

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "The fact that there were no snacks"

Cons: "Food was not good. Just filling. Crew was not polite when I asked for more water"

Pros: "Nice crew and service, I ate all the food :) lots of new movies !"
Cons: "I guess it is a good thing for the airline because the plane was full, although it was crowded to me."

Pros: "Good meals and services with beverages"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "on time, courteous and helpful flight attendants. Good food in the right amounts."
Cons: "never easy to sleep properly, but was able to rest and sleep enough."

Pros: "Excellent service in business class: attentive, cordial, not intrusive."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "The Air Canada counter officer do not help me at all. She only told me to call Air Canada which I can not since the Shanghai office is close and the US number did not work. I ended up bought a new ticket with AA."

Pros: "Clean and friendly"

Pros: "It is always a pleasure to fly with Air Canada! The staff is always friendly and helpful and they provide great in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms on this plane, constant line for bathroom."

Pros: "Easy to board and pass through customs on the way to Canada. Crew was nice. Overall a pretty average flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system was broken for my seat. Screen wouldn't work properly. This was a problem in every seat I sat in."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to weather where the arriving plane was coming from. Apparently no other planes or crew were available to fill in. Interestingly, my daughter in Minneapolis knew before we did that our flight was cancelled. Poor communication. My son who was traveling with me was able to get help from Fatima on the "white phone". She got us to Winnipeg on a midnight flight and we then booked a $1400 Delta flight to Minneapolis from there. We needed to be there by 10 am to attend the legal adoption ceremony of my daughter's infant son. It was very close but we made it. Sorry to say but flying is no longer a pleasurable, exciting experience. Janet Davis"

Pros: "The crew were polite and friendly."
Cons: "It was a 3-hour flight, so there was no entertainment."

Pros: "Service before boarding was excellent. Checking in as long as the boarding time was efficient and fast. In flight service was okay, flight crew was helpful and friendly. The selection of entertainment was excellent. Good international films, in addition to the monocles 24 hours radio station. However, the food was mediocre, there was not enough food for a flight of 11 hours."
Cons: "I didn't like the amount and selection of food."

Pros: "It was good flight experience. Friendly staff and comfortable flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system was very old and kept freezing. It was difficult to use."

Pros: "It was a fast flight."
Cons: "Leg room."

Pros: "The ciabatta buns served with the regular meals, looked lovely, as did the regular meat meals. Unfortunately, I ordered the Hindu Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Usually the Hindu Vegetarian meals are quite nice, but these ones were not. I have eaten a lot of Indian and Middle Eastern food, and I could not identify what this was supposed to be. The basmati rice had the consistency of oatmeal. The first meal was tasteless and the second meal had too much hot spice, but still no flavour. The bread they gave with the meal was tiny and tasteless compared to the lovely ciabatta rolls served with the regular meals."

Cons: "my language has been lost !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "The crew was especially friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Small plane. Poor service. rough landing"

Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very polite. One of them spilled one of the dinners right next to me and hardly cleaned it up. I waited for her to come back to clean it but a few hours later, I just cleaned it myself (even though she spilled all of it)."

Pros: "Crew was nice."

Pros: "Econamy class allows 2 piece of bag."
Cons: "I only have one bag. My bag is weighted 57 lb and charged me CA$100.00. They should have averaged 2 bags' weight and I should not have charged CA$100.00. I think the service is poor."

Pros: "and I'm average height (5'10"). Flight boarded early and we were airborne by scheduled take off time. Fortunately, we checked at scheduled boarding time and made last call. Crew was friendly. Movies were OK. Mostly old hat. Bring your own I-pod. They only come around once with beverages so you have to ask."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "The entertainment was good and the crew was efficient. Getting on and off the plane was smooth."
Cons: "I couldn't believe how little room there was for such a long flight! There wasn't enough room for me to reach my bag that was on the ground even when the seat in front of me wasn't reclined. And the people next to me kept jabbing me with their elbows because three grown adults simply could not sit next to one another in such a small space. I'm a small person so if I feel crammed on a flight I have no idea how the average person can tolerate it!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything from customer service to flight."

Pros: "The staff offered a hotel and voucher for for 24hr delay but I was still unable to make up for lost travel time."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight to Dublin because the plane was delayed nearly three hours. I received a new ticket for 24hours after my oringial connecting flight. When I arrived in Dublin my baggage had been placed on the wrong flight."

Pros: "Crew was nice but customer service at the airport and over the phone is terrible (takes over 30 min to speak with someone and a few times they hang up the phone)"
Cons: "Luggage was delayed for over 36 hours and customer service hotline was useless."

Pros: "Everyone was very courteous to us. Very little turbulence on trip. Flying is very easy today more than Even 5 years ago. I will fly again on Air Canada"
Cons: "Small basic meals"

Cons: "Flight was great. Kayak was a nightmare to work with."

Pros: "Decent flight"
Cons: "Delays are part of travel, but they're ridiculous and I am unhappy with the delay leaving Minneapolis. It caused all sorts of problems down the line because it caused me to miss my connection, take different flights, and come into Munich much later than I had expected. Also, you Canadians don't have Sudoku in your magazines. Why?"

Pros: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"

I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"

Pros: "that the crew was friendly"
Cons: "food was awful"

Cons: "map was broken halfway into flight"

Pros: "Toronto->Shanghai Good In general it was a good flight considering how long (14 hours) it was. The new entertainment system has a lot of features and movies. It also has chat to other passengers which is useful when travelling with a group sitting in different areas."
Cons: "Bad Long flight but that is the way it is. The fight map froze on my entertainment system about 1/2 through the flight so the map was useless after that. One side of my earphones also went dead. My wife wanted something better then hot noodles in a cup for the middle meal."

Pros: "chairs a little bigger"
Cons: "the staff are indifferent to a point of being rude. The food is dismal and their cost cutting measures really reflect how bad it has become. It functions like a budget airline now. Try to learn a thing or two from the airlines like Cathay Pacific, Singapore airlines and Qatar airlines."

Cons: "I asked a crew member to find me a empty space near me so that i don't need to store my luggage in the way way back, and she said she was too short to open and close those overhead bins. SERIOUSLY, HOW DID YOU GET THE DAMN JOB"

Cons: "The entertainment very bad the tv was yellow"

Pros: "The seats were soso. But the crew members were pretty good"
Cons: "They need a bugger plane"

Cons: "Terrible meal. Beef is tough. You cannot chew If off. Worst ever that I have ever had."

Pros: "Nice crew, night food."
Cons: "Old aircraft type, insufficient entertaiment."

Cons: "Boarding by bus .... on time but departure delayed 45 mins ... I guess typical for China ..."

Cons: "Movies were very limited and not recent."

Cons: "Every thing perfect, I’m so happy with the service."

Cons: "3 hours delay I miss my professional meeting in Shanghai because of this big delay !!! I Sky Team Flying Blue Platinum for Life and this is the first time I got a bad seat and no window"

Pros: "3 free meals."
Cons: "The flight attendants are dry and unhelpful to others not their own race."

Cons: "Bags lost"

Pros: "I like it allow an adult passenger with 2 free checked baggages,each can be 23kg max."
Cons: "The Online service is only set for Chinese who is living in China. You can not do the Seat Reservation without Chines mobile phone. You can not do any pre check-in because you are holding an Australia Passport."

Cons: "The plane was too hot inside. It felt like the ac was not set properly. It was very uncomfortable. No entertainment system."

Pros: "Flight was on time, boarding was smooth, new equipment, crew very efficient, polite and helpful."
Cons: "The food was mediocre at best."

Pros: ""Nothing". I really mean it Nothing."
Cons: "I was flying to Delhi & it was an emergency situation for me bcz i lost my Dad & i was flying to perform the cremation of my Dad. And thing this was informed to the China Southern officials so that they could arrange something for me. I requested them to put me into another flight for which i was ready to pay the whole amount but no one listen to my request & i had to wait so long. I was amazed to see that no one was keen to understand my problem at both he airports i.e. Auckland Airport & Ganzhaou Airport. Apart from this the behavior of your officials was so rude & arrogant it made me feel as if i was a slave or some kind of culprit. Due to the ignorance & laid back attitude on your part i couldn't reach my destination on my time. Seriously it took me "24 hrs Extra" to reach my destination & as a result of which i couldn't perform the cremation. I was pissed off by the service; complete ignorance by the staff/officials of ur airlines. I wasn't expecting this kind of treatment from a reputed company like you. I request you guys to look into this matter seriously and try to take some corrective measures so that this thing won't happen in future with someone else."

Pros: "It’s simply a way to get from one airport to another. Everything is adequate minus the food."
Cons: "The food is really bad, and everything else is adequate for simple travel."

Pros: "Service was great,"
Cons: "Seating was a little cramped for business class,"

Cons: "Hidden stop in Wuhan and a problem with the plane had the crew scrambled and confused. They didnt know what to do next, they followed orders from someone over the walkies. First they wanted to move all pax to hotels with buses, but plane got fixed while preparing the buses. Organization of re-entry and reboarding was very frantic and confused. During all this time, crew never gave any announcements in english language, so foreign tourists had to get information from other passengers who could translate..."

Pros: "The crew was always on top of things. The bathrooms were kept extremely clean. Ontime departure and early arrival. I would definitely recommend China Southern. Many movie choices. Very pleasantly surprised!"

Pros: "CS did offer Priority Business class immigration and lounge"
Cons: "Booked 6 months in advance, at counter for return was advised that they had over booked and wanted to change my flights. All my reservations pre made with transportation and hotels, they want to change on day of departure???? NO! NO notifications, terrible counter service. No entertainment offered!!!"

Pros: "China Southern has nice customer service, good entertainment options and decent food. They moved me to an actual bulkhead seat because i am tall and it made the 13 hour trip easy."
Cons: "All good."

Cons: "baggage didn't make it; will be delivered in 2 days"

Pros: "Arrived on time."

Pros: "Crew excellent"
Cons: "Nice plane but seats were pretty hard on this particular plane. Noticed it on the flight from LAX also. Also, lots of movies but few recent releases."

Pros: "I like frankly low cost"
Cons: "I dont like old flight and food."

Pros: "Crew tries to help"
Cons: "I can never get a hold of customer service... I'm vegan. I tried to preorder my food. It's always a hassle. I spoke to the people at the air port, they too didn't know what to do. I usually have to talk to the crew. Their webpage is horrible. I can't sign up for their mileage program... It's impossible."

Pros: "Nice service! Provides customers many varieties thing."

Pros: "Long flight, but one of the best we've flown. The flight times make a huge difference and China Southern really impressed with their itinerary and price. The A380 may be my favorite plane now too. Kids loved the movie selection, they ate both meals and they slept in between. Can't ask for more. One child got sick during flight but the stewardesses were very helpful. Will keep them in our top options going forward."
Cons: "I was prepared to be upset at China Southern because they try to get you to pay for picking your seat ahead of time. We took our chances and they got our family of 7 seats together on all 4 legs of our flights! It's a risk, but they seem to be very accommodating to families. Don't waste the money paying extra"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful at all times."
Cons: "only 1 movie plays on all screens, no choices or options."

Pros: "No delays"

Pros: "Overall service, layover arrangement, on time, cabin service/cleanliness etc."

Pros: "The only positive thing was that the flight was on time."
Cons: "Cabin crew was largely absent. The seats were small and there was no legroom. The food was mediocre, but edible. Alcoholic drinks were limited to a red wine, a white wine, and beer, none of which were good.The bathrooms were quite dirty, though that is more a reflection of the passengers than of the crew."

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: "Plane"
Cons: "Crew was not organised"

Cons: "They just two weeks before the flight decided to change the dates of the flight."

Pros: "Very professional and courteous operation. Departure/arrival was right on time. Connection flt transfer in Guangzhou went very smooth and is simple to pass through concourses to connecting flt. Other airlines and airports can be a major hassle, but China Southern Airlines has their business model operation down to a science. And the best part, their prices are very offirdable."

Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "A friend and I flew China Southern from Bali to New York. For a 15 flight, one of our TV screens was not working. Both of our luggage were left off the flight. Any money you think you save will come out the other end -- shopping for necessities when they lose your luggage. Have recommended all my friends to never fly China Southern."

Pros: "food was fine"
Cons: "I asked for a cup of coffee. They literally poured me one fourth of a small cup of coffee. When I asked for more, they put about 2 teaspoons more in the cup. Flight attendants shoved against you in the aisles. None of them smiled or were friendly."

Cons: "Flight delayed 90 minutes. Poor communications in boarding area. No bi-lingual staff. Food consisted of a cup of yogurt, banana, and stale bread. Awful. Cabin crew was rude. Spouse's entertainment system did not work correctly."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "40 minute boarding delay with little to no info. Then had to wait another 40 minutes for luggage pickup."

Pros: "arrive chengdu for two days,still didn't.get our bags,all our stuffs were in those bags,and now still didn't know when can we get our luggage"

Pros: "Punctual departure, early arrival. Cabin crew was very attentive. Plenty of drinks to keep hydrated. Lots of movie and entertainment choices."
Cons: "Seat cushioning was worn out...not so comfortable for a long flight. Limited leg room. Unless you were seated at the beginning rows of the food service, there was only one food choice left. Also ran out of snacks for the back rows."

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Quick and efficient check-in. Very helpful personnel - I went away to pay my excess baggage and returned to a long line - but, the check-in clerk beckoned me to the front and handed me my boarding pass! Nice!!"
Cons: "Massive lines for security gates......if my flight had not been delayed, I would have missed my flight. I was in the security line for over 90 minutes!"

Pros: "On time and great service!"
Cons: "meal was just OK"

Pros: "The price was good and the layover hotel arrangement was very nice. The flights themselves were not very pleasant. The flight attendants were rude, food was mediocre, the wines were bad."

Cons: "I was hungry all the time , not enough food"

Pros: "direct flight from NYC to Guangzhou"
Cons: "difficult to select seat"

Pros: "It was a really smooth flight and comfortable. the flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "The food isn't so great, but that's not that uncommon. I was asked to close my shade several times from the very beginning of the flight except that I was wide awake and had deliberately asked for a window seat so I could look out. 15 hours is too long to fly in a darkened environment and especially when boarding in the morning after a nights' sleep. Perhaps handing out eye masks for folks who want darkness is a way to respect the needs of all passengers."

Pros: "came to dalian at least"
Cons: "flight cancelled due to weather conditions, chaos at the ticket counter. no support for the overnight planning, ticket counter doesn't decide. manager lost in huge groups of discussing chinese travellers. who sours loudest to be served first. no drink, no food offer."

Cons: "Experienced no issues, overall good experience."

Pros: "Nice staff"

Cons: "If the temperature is higher, that would be better."

Pros: "New planes. Spotlessly clean. Hard working helpful staff. Good boarding. Adequate legroom by modern standards. Food typical of economy these days. OK. But really good staff."
Cons: "Fried rice breakfast out of Rome. Mushy. But overall food out of Sydney, Rome and Shanghai, fine."

Cons: "None."

Cons: "Very limited English speaking programs/movies"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "the boarding process"

Cons: "All was fine"

Cons: "The air ticket from Shanghai to Wuxi is not an air ticket. It's a bus ticket! I had to stay in the coach 3hrs. I can't believe you guys never mentioned about it! Disappointed!"

Pros: "Overall okay !"
Cons: "The quality of your head phone is totally below standard. The sound quality is really bad and ruins the novelty of a "just released" movie. Please get proper headsets..... what you are doing now stinks of "cost saving". The breakfast variety was not good.... not balanced ... a complete "mish/mash" ....semi East meets West. Please get someone professional to put a proper breakfast menu together"

Cons: "Not enough smiles and politeness"

Pros: "I made a friend"
Cons: "I lost a friend"
