Cons: "No complaints about anything."
Pros: "The services was excellent. Everyone was polite. Overall was very good experience."

Cons: "Had to declare onto the tarmac and get a shuttle to the airport when landings in Guangzhou. Not enjoyable. Could be very stressful with a short connection time."
Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful. It was almost empty so I had an entire row to myself and I could stretch out and sleep."
Cons: "The 16 hour delay was horrendous. China Southern knew this flight was going to be delayed more than 12 hours before the scheduled departure. Yet, they did nothing to prepare for it. They began looking for hotel rooms after the departure time had passed. I was in the last batch taken to a hotel where I had a choice of sleeping on the tile conference room floor or sharing a room with a stranger. At least I got my own bed. Others had to share a bed with a stranger. There was no prior thought given to prepare for the situation, no meal vouchers offered, and the level of rudeness displayed by the airline staff was beyond comprehension. Delays happen. They are part of modern air travel. But, in many years of international travel, I have never before seen a delay mismanaged so completely.. Then to top it off, bags were left in NY."
Pros: "I was in business class. The lie-flat seat was pretty good with lots of space for storing my things. The crew was efficient but not particularly friendly. The bathroom was kept very very clean."
Cons: "The food was mediocre to poor. They forced me to turn off my computer one hour prior to landing."
Pros: "Seating was good and comfortable"
Cons: "They should at least have English speaking flight attendants even one or 2 .. no liquor service on a 16 hour flight"
Pros: "Counter staff at JFK was exceptional for our check-in. The crew was very attentive and accomodating. Providing any amount of beverages we asked for as well as adjusting cabin temperature and providing with extra blankets. Nice selection on entertainment system with no hassles to make It work. Always smiling. Constantly cleaning up trash and the bathrooms. One of my most enjoyable long distant flights ever!"
Cons: "Seats were narrow."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "The food was lame"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, great food, nice collection of movies. The flight attendant was very pleasant and accommodating . Great airlines."
Pros: "The ground staff were also very helpful."
Pros: "The boarding was on time and organized.the crew was friendly and helpful. My seats were comfortable even though they were ecomomy class. The food was delicious and more than I expected. Finally, the movie selections were current and interesting. Honestly did not have a negative moment."
Cons: "The flight was so freezing that I (and all around me) had to wear their winter coats during the flight. My TV did not work and each meal I was served was not what I asked for. I also had to ask repeatedly for water before receiving it. A nice flight attendant lent me her iPad so that I could have some entertainment during the flight. Will avoid China Southern airlines in the future."

Pros: "Was prepared for the worst and was actually a good airline."
Cons: "English announcement can be improved"
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: "My upgraded seat although had to pay for it, otherwise I was going to sit in the middle row in a section with about 50 small children."
Cons: "I had an 8 hour layover at JFK and the China southern counter didn't open until three hours before the flight took off. So I had to sit outside of the terminal waiting for them to open. Couldn't even get to s lounge as I had no boarding pass. (I tried several times to call earlier in the week and the phone system at China southern is terrible - was on hold for a long time every time then the operators were not helpful at all). I waited in the check in line for an hour and a half. Several times I witnessed people going in the business class line and they clearly were not in business class but they allowed them to just jump the line anyway. (I realized this once I was finally able to ask for an upgrade - not until I got to the gate counter because the guy who checked me in didn't understand my request, poor English - and once on the plane there were very few people in business class and I know those people who had jumped the line were not among them ). Very disappointed with the whole process."
Pros: "Excellent choices of movies and shows"
Cons: "Food was so-so"
Pros: "Responsive. Clean well designed cabin"
Cons: "The entertainment menu. This matters for s long hayl"

Pros: "I was able to sit in the Business Economy section and loved having the extra legroom since I am tall. The flight attendants were amazing!"
Cons: "I was disappointed that my seat didn't recline. Though the seat was very comfortable overall in plushness - not being able to recline just a little was tough on the neck.... No soap in half of the bathrooms. Thank goodness I brought antibacterial spray."

Cons: "Tvs didn't work"
Pros: "Courteous flight attendants good food ample seeting space"
Pros: "The food was terrible! No snacks (not even a cracker!) in between meals. We waited 8 hours for the second meal."
