Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew, super clean and new plane"

Pros: "Overall good flight"

Pros: "Smooth flight!"
Cons: "Delay in China without any explanation."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "Food tastes horrible. Flight attendant picked her nose at one time right before distributing the drinks and did not wash her hands. You're not given your own canned drink rather a half a cup. Seats are too small/don't look clean. Movie selection was poor. Plane was delayed! Luggage left in Bejing."
Cons: "Delayed an hour due to inbound flight late on schedule"
Cons: "Ca Needs to be more clear on who can get a transit entry , I with a US Passport didn't get one and stuck in pek airport for 25 hours ,"
Cons: "After I checked in found out the boarding pass is not my name !! Went back got the right one & also changed luggage tags (2) , but the luggage’s missing, tidy is day 3 ! Still hoping...."
Pros: "The plane made no unscheduled landings."
Cons: "The extreme delay that caused me to nearly miss my connection with Air China, the incredibly low level of English spoken on a flight originated in the US, and the complete dismissal of three cabin crew members when I asked about arrangements to be expedited to our connecting flight to Bangkok. Avoid this airline completely, and if at all possible, transiting through Beijing Capital Airport."
Cons: "Air China practices very democratic way (in a bad eay) of boarding the plane, without distinguishing the 1st class, busineas class, and Star Alliance members from the rest of the passengers. The food is abit overly simple, in spite of the short flight - a sendwich wrapped in an alu-foil... And it was crazy cold in the cabin."
Cons: "Transfer in Beijing gave only one hour between flights. Impossible to make with China's cumbersome security procedure. Why did they give us those flights? Told staff on plane that we had a tough connection. No communication or procedure to help make transfer. Got to the gate BEFORE flight was to take off but plane was uncoupled from ramp and NO STAFF present. Went to another Air China gate and could not get any help. No supervisors to help. Five people missed the connection. Had to wait over EIGHT hours for next flight and was offered NOTHING by way of compensation. Does not appear that Air Chine wants to live up to the country's status in the world. Very poor service."
Cons: "the food was so bad. no vegetarian options"
Pros: "Kayak messages about the gate number, delay, and so on all went into my spam folder and found them later after the flight"
Cons: "Plane was delayed several hours. Initially, Air China delayed flight assuming due to leaving late en route from China to EWR. Then because of rain in NYC area, ultimately almost 4 hours past initially scheduled time of 12:40 pm."
Cons: "No guarantee for flight due to inclimiment weather"
Pros: "They tried their best to accomodate but didn't do much to make everyone feel treated well."
Cons: "Flight changed three times with different times. In the end we were delayed for 5 hours and missed connecting flights. They offered a $15 food voucher and forced people to sleep together in a hotel room since they refused to let people who came alone have their own room. They rebooked and made it a complete waste of a vacation day while we wait to board a new flight in the middle of the afternoon."
Cons: "cabin space"
Cons: "A lot of turbulence the last half. I got sick and I have been flying for 20 years through Europe and Asia. It never happened before. A rough landing."

Cons: "The screen broken and I could watch anything"

Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "Air China canceled my original flight without notification, put me on a different flight and then changed my connecting flight to the next day so I landed an entire day after my original plan. They also put me inside a very uncomfortable hotel in Beijing."

Cons: "Crew don't pay attention to your request"
Pros: "The food was very good."

Everything was rush rush. Then when we arrived in Chiang Mai. None of our luggage was there. We are traveling to another destination and pray we have All 3 bags. They have notified us that 2 bags will be here tomorrow. We were forced to check a carry on that had our emergency essentials. Everything was rush rush. Then when we arrived in Chiang Mai. None of our luggage was there. We are traveling to another destination and pray we have All the luggage by Thursday. When we leave."

Pros: "But very very far experience from Emirates or Qatar air to this part of the world."

Pros: "Air China aircraft is very new and clean."

Pros: "Many meals and movie selections which helped."
Cons: "No leg room."
Cons: "The connection time between my flights was only one hour. It took me more than 30 minutes to get off the plane and from the tarmac to the airport. By that time, my connecting flight was boarding. By the time I made it through security, I had missed my flight."
Cons: "disappointed with the airports"
Pros: "Movie selection was good"

Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "We couldn't use out phones, all I wanted to do is listen to music I already have save to my phone. The food was horrible."
Pros: "Dude at counter who had to change our seats as we were flying with an infant was great. Other people who were assisting us didn't know how to fix the issue but he did. Then when we boarded, he made sure we went first as we had all that baby stuff you have to carry!"
Cons: "I have flown Air China 6 times and every time we leave late. One time it caused me to miss a connecting flight and I was stuck in LA for two days. Food is not good. Buy snacks before you board. Movies/entertainment is poor. Nothing to watch for 15 hours."
