Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was great with service even though they must have been super tired from the flight."
Cons: "More leg-room and space to stretch."
Cons: "Plane Seating space is so crowded & leg room space too small"
Pros: "The plane departed on time, smooth landing"
Cons: "Should offered more meal selections besides pork and beef"
Pros: "short (3 hours) flight. food is okay as airplane food. seats are pretty big."
Cons: "The only complaining is there isn't any Cantonese movies as it supposed to be a Guangzhou (廣東) bound."
Pros: "I like the part that the check in personnel and flight attendants were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "That I cannot check in online and the seats are prearranged by the airline. I wont be using the agency that book my travels. CSair was hard to contact to confirm the flight."
Pros: "I don’t really like anything about flying. They gave me an aisle seat that was nice."
Cons: "No vegetarian options so I couldn’t eat meal. I tried to call in advance but couldn’t get through. I don’t understand why all options contain meat. No on flight entertainment. No order when boarding."
Pros: "Uncomfortable and poorly managed."
Cons: "The seating. The plane comfort. Unable to understand the words of the crew ( I speak English but the accent is difficult to interpret)."
Pros: "We enjoyed our flight on China Southern. The aircraft, the service, the staff, the food: everything was great. The flight was delayed out of Phuket, causing us to miss our connecting flight to SFO in Guongzhou, but China Southern provided us with a seamless alternate and our ultimate arrival at ATL was barely delayed."
Cons: "My bag didn’t make it to the final destination. I was one of many people in the same situation who made the same journey originating in SF and ending in Bangkok. We had an almost 3 hour layover in Guangzhou, so I doubt that there wasn’t enough time to make the bag transfer."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing! I love how everything was included in your ticket!!! American Airline will make their grandmother pay for toilet paper!!!! I really love how the carts in the airport to push your luggage around were free. in America there's $6. I had a 12-hour layover in China, I just want to say thank you so much for putting me in a hotel and giving me transportation! that would never happen in America thank you so much! Thank you so much! I hope it stays the same way forever !"
Cons: "EVERYTHING! Would love to use you guys again!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "They lost my bags for over 48 hours. I had to din my bags myself. I will never use them again."
Pros: "Flight went quicker than expected."
Cons: "China southern management completely botched the handling of this flight. Mechanical issue turned into a 6+ hour delay. Passengers given no updates. Held on plane for 4 of those hours without updates. Toilets were not flushing and reeked the interior cabin. Passengers wanted to leave and get hotel accommodations but were not given such options and were trapped on plane. Passengers began confronting and arguing with flight stewards. Still no updates from captain during whole ordeal. People were very agitated and trust was lost as flight attendants seemingly forced passengers back into their seats abruptly. Some left plane due to feeling unsafe to fly."
Cons: "Me and many customers on CZ 371 lost our baggages during the transit in Guangzhou. Still no update on lost and found yet."
Cons: "Most food was non-vegetarian only. Was tricky to get vegetarian food. But the flight staff have us their own vegetarian lunch. Which was way more than I expected of them, but would have preferred of the flight just had that as an option."
Pros: "Love that everything is included. Food, drinks and entertainment. The crew were great and nothing was too much trouble."
Cons: "Boarding of the A380 was ridiculous. We were lined up well ahead of boarding, then moved to another line, then moved again. Once we were lined up we had to stop and start, other people were pushed to the front again and again. This could have been solved by leaving one lane free for people sitting upstairs, or 'preferred' fliers. Instead everyone was pushed back and had to wait. I've never seen an aeroplane boarded so badly and we ended up being some of the last people on the plane. Badly organised and just plain awful."
Pros: "In this sector they provided food which was vegetarian, but salad was having a roll of SALMON FISH and a SHRIMP. I wish to tell them, Fish is not Vegan or Vegetarian. It is considered as Non-Veg food."
Pros: "One of the better airlines in China. Amazing staff, Bilingual."
Cons: "No entertainment. Inefficient boarding. Tightly packed seats. Barebones aircraft. Late getting up in the air. Hot temperature on the ground."
Pros: "I like the comfort seat from New York to Guangzhou on Being 777 even though it was a long flight of almost 15 hours."
Cons: "The white wine served on the CZ600 flight between New York and Guangzhou was not chilled. The flight crews should be trained that white wine needs to be served chilled. The Delta Club at JFK closed before midnight. However the outbound flight from JFK did not leave until 1:40 am. There should be notice where the business class customers should go to get lounge services."
Cons: "Could not reserve a seat ahead of time and the website was impossible. But once on the flight, all was good. But I agree with others that the seats are very hard. This was business class and a 15 hour flight."
Cons: "Big problem communicating with the crew. Enough Food options not there for vegitarians"
Pros: "Good food. Great price and value. You can't beat the free hotel stay if you have a layover that is 8 hours or longer."
Pros: "Everything was mediocre at best"
Cons: "China southern line and its base Guangzhou airport is notorious for delays. I had 18 and 23 hour delay so for each of my legs of my return flight. Of course connection flights were missed and the multi-step reassignment was time and labor intensive."
Pros: "Not much to like after being delayed."
Cons: "Both my flights were delayed. In the end arrived at my destination at 3:30 am when I was originally scheduled to arrive at midnight."
Pros: "Service Comfort Ease of connection Excellent airline"
Cons: "Nothing to not like"
Pros: "on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "unappetizing meals"
Pros: "I flew China Southern from Shenyang to Shanghai 4 days after rupturing my Achilles tendon. There service was fantastic, getting me wheelchairs through both airports, changing my seat to give my leg more room, giving me special attention during the flight to make sure I was comfortable. Their service for me was outstanding and caring in every way. 10+ from me. Thank you China Southern!"
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Cons: "No fresh fruits were given. They should keep some apples or some other fruit for those who miss their lunch schedules"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "no power in economy"
Pros: "1. The check-in was very good, and very helpful!!!!...***** (5 stars service). 2. Flight crew was very professional."
Cons: "1. No information or explanation in English about the flight delay. 2. I have a very expensive new metal "19 degree Tumi all Aluminum suite case. It arrives damaged with a whole punched through the side wall. Cost me USD $1,395. Total disrespect for my property entrusted to China southern airlines. You inform me in Hong Kong maximum reimbursement is approximately USD 50.00 ! How would you feel about that? You tell me! 3. Approximately a 4 hour flight delay. I am not sure it was really necessary. How would you feel about that? You tell me! 4. Took a long time to get off the plane. I was in the front... No bus I think I appreciate the plastic rain coat. However The buss was leaking inside worse than the rain outside, and all over me. I left the bus with very wet trousers. How would you feel about that? You tell me! 5. So many problems because of a little rain...Really? You cant deal with a little rain better than this?"
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: "Vegetarian option available despite not being able to select this when booking the flight"
Cons: "Flight crew unavailable after serving meal to offer refreshments regularly during flight and seats very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Once I was on the plane, it was wonderful. A very long flight went by very quickly and comfortably."
Cons: "Getting information or confirmation of my flight ahead of time was impossible. The web site wants a string of three identifiers delimited by some single character in some order. I know I saw two different orders for those three and believe I saw a third. I never got in."
Pros: "Great food, friendly service, plenty of leg room, not bad for an 11.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Plane was a bit older for a long haul (Airbus A330), seats were hard. We left 45 minutes late without any explanation."
Pros: "Didn't check me through for my second leg, and I had a very short layover in Guangzhou. Luckily they let me skip the very long line at the immigrations/transfer counter to get my boarding pass. Flight itself left early and was pleasant."
Pros: "I was traveling business, the crew were so helpful, it's 1 to 1 individual service. The seats were so comfortable and lots of room. Food is fantastic, lounge is very good, good food and drinks. Their price is quite reasonable, makes this trip worth every cent of it! Love it and I will travel with them in future."
Cons: "Will never use this airline."
Pros: "I was worried about such a long night flight with an airline that I wasn't familiar with but they were extremely polite and helpful, the seats were comfortable and a great entertainment selection. To everyone who complained about the food... It was not bad, actually better than most airplane food I have had. And I didn't hear a single person have anything negative to say about it as they polished everything off!"
Pros: "Plenty if food and courtesy from staff and passengers. Overall, it was a great flight."
Cons: "Didnt like being told to turn off electronics for the whole flight from Manila to China. It didnt make much sense especially when i saw Chinese citizens able to use their electronic equipment."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Online check in is not possible when not booking directly with airline. Airline does not have kiosks for expedited airport check-in when not documenting luggage. Entertainment was not available and personal electronic devices not allowed. Food was below air carrier average."
Pros: "Best seat I have ever had"
Cons: "I could not check in for any of my flights on line. And was not even able to get boarding passes for my second and third flight when I checked in for my first flight. I had to check in at each destination to get my next boarding pass."
Cons: "English announcement can be improved"
Cons: "I had missed my flight. I went to get another as it was urgent I arrived the next day. After hours, I was assured I would have a flight the next day at no charge. The next day I was screamed at in line and told to leave. The only other flight available was three thousand dollars one way. I missed my appointment and purpose of the trip. I had to wait another day and pay over 850 dollars one way."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The plane was filthy. The pillow they gave me was gray for example. I had to wipe everything down first. The biggest surprise was that there was no internet on any of the four flights I took with this carrier. It's 2016 how do you not have internet available? I would not fly this airline again until they can compete with Western airlines."
Pros: "Arriving safely and on time."
Cons: "The food is awful. I requested lacto vegetarian. That means, pasta, pasta and more pasta. Once of the pasta meals smelled as if it had gone bad. Made me gag. No who grains and margarine instead of butter. Flight crew slow in picking up dishes from the meals. Also, they did not come by with water often enough. The bathrooms were not kept clean during flight and at once point ran out of toilet paper."
Pros: "Had a 10 hour layover in Guangzhou. In the transit area, crew informed me that they could provide complimentary accommodations. They provided roundtrip shuttle between airport and hotel (Vienna Hotel, 3 star option, although they seem to have several hotel available). Got to rest, do some work, and shower before long flight to Amsterdam. Will definitely ride with this airline again."
