In the airplane over 2 1/2 hours that is unheard of We finally arrived in shaman at 2 PM So we have for our steel late due to unknown reason After travel from JFK to Beijing China 15 hours and three hours layover +3 half hours sitting in the airplane that is just ridiculous"
Cons: "They added 10 hours to my scheduled layover and would not give me lounge access for the inconvenience."
Cons: "Waiting to book seats till arriving at airport because it was 3 party booking. Didn’t want to pay more to pick seats because that’s why we booked with you to save money. Was on a 15hr flight not with my husband. Did not start out vacation out on the foot."

Cons: "very irresponsible! & no English"
Cons: "Nobody was even at the counter? Only a sign saying the flight was cancelled. Worst experience at the airport I've ever had."
Pros: "The whole experience was unsatisfactory"
Cons: "They were changing my seat around. They lost my luggage. Still not found yet and has all the Christmas gifts I was bringing to my girl friend and her family. My clothes and medicines as well."
Cons: "No vegetarian option, crew spoke little to no English, board was a mess, delayed an hour on tarmac after boarding late, only 4 agents at JFK to check in several hundred people."
Pros: "We got to move to the front of economy which gave us more legroom which we needed."
Cons: "They changed planes on us and we lost our upgraded “premium economy” seats."
Pros: "Some of my friends had bad experience with Air. China. I was a bit worry about delays and lost luggages. It came out to be quite good. It was only delayed by half an hour and I was able to retrieve all my luggages. The food is also quite good."
Cons: "For the long flight, I was not able to use the touch screen for any entertainment. I think it was broken. The seat is not as comfortable as I thought. They need to upgrade the entertainment touch screen and seat cushions."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and helpful, meals were adequate with drinks and snacks available between meals."
Cons: "The interior of the plane could use a facelift, the seats were well worn and stained. The movie selection was limited with more than half the choices in Chinese with subtitles too small to read on the tiny seat back screen. Also the headphone jack did not fit properly so I had to constantly hold it in place. Bathrooms were not well maintained."
Cons: "My complaint is against FlightNetwork.com AND Air China for failing to respect the agreement made when my ticket was purchased and the money had been withdrawn. I would like Kayak to be cautious about working with flightnetwork.com because they took my money but did not honor my ticket or register it with Air China. While waiting to speak with an agent at flightnetwork.com, the Air China manager told me he had plans and would not wait for me to help solve the issue. I was left alone at the counter and forced to buy an entirely new ticket from a different carrier last minute. I do not recommend using Air China from NY JFK or the flightnework.com service connected to Kayak."

Pros: "Can't think of much. The plane was in good shape and it got us to Beijing, albeit very late."
Cons: "Currently stuck in Beijing and it is 100 percent the most intensely awful situation I've had while flying. Do not fly air china and certainly avoid Beijing airport if possible. I say this calmly, even if it doesn't read that way."

Cons: "On the last short flight there was business class seats but we were at the very back of the plane."
Cons: "Seat is small and uncomfortable No entertainment on flight Landing late Food test not good poor customer service"
Cons: "We missed our connecting in the Beijing airport both times. Even though our flights were delayed by several hours, the AirChina staff seemed unprepared to help us about we sat in the Beijing airport for multiple hours before going to Phuket and again on the way home when going back to NYC. They refused to give us meal vouchers and were generally unapologetic."
Cons: "They informed me 3 days in advance via email that my connecting flight is cancelled. No rebooking to other carrier, no hotel. They expected me to wait 24 hours in Beijing airport! Worst: had to try 4 times to call them till someone picked up, 3 times I gave up after 30 minutes (roaming). Very unfriendly handling of case."
Pros: "Polite and customer oriented flight crew."
Cons: "Food could be better in terms of content/ ingredients. Entertainment choices for non-Chinese oriented movipes/songs were too few."

Cons: "Plane was not climate controlled well."
Cons: "Flight landed late, middle of airport when it's raining, and we had to take the steps down and squeeze into a tiny bus...which also only fit half the flight, so a lot of people got stuck waiting in the rain for a bus after they got off."
