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AND Air China for failing to respect the agreement made when my ticket was purchased and the money had been withdrawn.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: "Great flight and entertainment throughout."
Cons: "Everything w this flight was satisfactory. No negatives to mention."

Pros: "Flight was delayed, check in was not as orderly... but customer service to accommodate re booking on connection flight was great. Overall the airline is great in being accommodating."
Cons: "Chinese passengers needs more training in travel etiquette and listening to crew members. As a fellow chinese myself, it is really sad to witness the uncouth behavior of chinese travelers."
Pros: "Easy boarding, roomy seats, good price for business class."
Cons: "Bad choice of movies, sub-par food, small bathrooms."
Pros: "It was nice."
Cons: "Delayed a little bit."
Cons: "I was already on the airport and about to check in early, so they didn't let me check in because I forgot to put my middle name on reservation. I tried to call kayak and nobody is answering, I also called priceline and they couldn't do anything. They said I have to cancel everything then rebook a new one. So I ended up paying $1300!!! for a new flight and in addition to that I have a penalty of $200!!! For my original flight cost of only $600. And my companion who has the same flight as me didn't take her flight because the agent in Air china said that we could rebook her flight without charge and for the same price. So we ended up paying $1300 for her as well plus again the $200 penalty. So we lost $3000 for just the 2 of us!! I will never fly air china again! Worst day ever!"
Pros: "Service is pretty good but the food not"
Cons: "We were delayed in the plane on the ground for seven hours. I missed my connecting flight by five hours. Worst flying experience I have ever had."
Pros: "Overall ok. Plane was an older model."
Cons: "No wifi for long trips. Very important to me."
Cons: "The seats were very close together so when the person in front of you reclined back, it was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I'm 6'2" and had good leg room in coach. The food was decent and the boarding process went pretty smoothly. Each seat had a power outlet below it (kinda out of sight). Overall my flight was pretty good."
Cons: "The entrainment system was a little bit older semi touch screen (no usb charger). Air china was similar to China Eastern as they demanded all cell phones stay off for the duration of the flight. No WIFi was available for purchase."
Pros: "Worst flight ever. Delayed 2 hours on the front end. Food was horrible. Plane was freezing. Service awful. No information on the delays."
Pros: "Mr. Zhang helped me a lot. Thanks!"
Cons: "Please see above...All 4 of Air China flights to and from JFK to Beijing & Beijing to Bangkok were delayed... one of them over an hour another over two hours another one over three and a half hours and another one over an hour and a half. Missed even their own connecting flights! The seats were cramped and tight the food was horrible, really quite disgusting. They walkthrough very quickly with a water bottle and cups when I really feel they should mandatory pour you water on such long flights if you are not sleeping. If you do not get their attention they just pass you. They also should conserve and or do recycling they go through a lot of waste of cups, utensils xcetera. The movies they offered were mainly Chinese. The headphones work huge and not adjustable, they kept falling off. Also when I needed to change my flight due to an emergency I was on hold multiple times with several disconnections for a total of over six and a half hours over a two-day time span. Finally got through when I called the insurance company could barely understand there customer service person. They ended up calling me back left a voicemail saying that I was all set for me to call back I went through the whole process again of being on hold for three hours and then get disconnected. When I went to check in and get my boarding pass in Bangkok to fly back they said I didn't have a ticket they pulled me out of line and waited for about a half an hour and they finally printed me a ticket. I also have the experience as to when I was sleeping as most of the plane was sleeping approx 95% there were a whole bunch of Asian people standing up gathered around the restroom talking very very very loudly! I finally called for the attendant and reminded her that I paid for my ticket too and I would like to be able to rest and if she could ask them to sit/quiet down, she did but it only lasted so long... I could hear it completely through the headphones with the music. So if you decide to fly Air China I would definitely make sure that your connecting flights are far apart, pay for business or first class, preorder your meal/ bring your own food, bring your own headphones and do not plan on changing your flight- so don't get hurt on your vacation/travel. Btw.. they don't even serve breakfast or offer coffee... it's all Chinese food either chicken beef or pork with rice or noodle. GOOD LUCK!"
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."
Pros: "The leg room and entertainment with the ability to change your devices. They were on time."
Cons: "The air hostess dont know how to speak to passangers professionally at all and they are not knowledgeable in aircraft device recommendations. What they were hitting passangers with are old and out dated. Phones do not interfair with the plane system as that to has computers in them. Just google it and you too will see it's nothing to get worked up over. English skills were poor, transferring in Beijing was horrible, there security is still old school with no common sense at all, a woman acted like she just got out of a dilemma with me and my wife. There directions is there but no assistance you will have to figure it out on your own."
Cons: "Toilets were disgusting. Not well kept. Crew needs to smile more and take on their job."
