Airline reviews

Pros: "na"

Cons: "Couldn't reach airline by phone to change my flight. After several attempts and an hour on hold they disconnected. Website won't help. Air China isn't a reliable airline."

Pros: "Boarding was easy."
Cons: "Food ! Tasteless and bald.."

Pros: "Nothing. Domestic flights are better than this"
Cons: "1 meal in 8 hour flight No beverages"

Pros: "Boarding was streamlined, planes took off on time and made it to destination before time. Entertainment options were decent."
Cons: "Food isn't the best (had Hindu meal for my flights) not sure if there is a better option. There isn't much in terms of snacks, outside the set meals. Some of the crew members do struggle with communicating in English, but I always found someone to work with."

Pros: "Nice food and great crews!"

Pros: "This time the plane's audio was fixed so it wasn't blaring on the head phones nor overhead."
Cons: "No smiles. No greetings. The crews morale and cheerfulness was vey lacking. Food option was vey limited."

Pros: "This flight served my needs well. I wanted a layover in Beijing on my way to and from Bangkok, and this flight accomplished that. Nice crew, good service, good entertainment system. A very decent flight."

Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "meals were served well, free beer and wine was great"
Cons: "food was not good, no veggie option , plane seemed outdated, seats crammed, in flight entertainment was not good. Remotes and navigation were terrible."

Cons: "So bad customer service"

Cons: "The plane was dirty. Entertainment system at my seat was broken. Food is nearly inedible. They are still flying outdated 747s that are literally falling apart and show their age. The plane is overdue for new paint and a refurbishment or just retirement. This is the typical experience with Air China. Fly Korean Air, ANA, JAL, or China Airlines for a better experience."

Pros: "Can’t beat the price"
Cons: "Pushy flight attendants don’t want you on your phone even if it is in airplane mode. Movie selection was slim."

Pros: "Transit time"
Cons: "Food, entertainment"

Pros: "There were personal movie screens with movies I liked."
Cons: "The food was pretty bad. The bottom seat cushion was quite hard so I couldn't sleep because I was shifting my weight every hour. We were told at the boarding gate that the flight was full when we asked about upgrades, but the economy plus section was almost empty once we were on. I don't understand the reasoning for lying about the flight being full. If you won't sell us an upgrade, just say so."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Airport in lounge was a waste of time, no wifi, terrible coffee, no showers."

Cons: "Flight delayed 3+ hours, missed my connection"

Cons: "Seats too small"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "i give 0 star"

Pros: "In flight movies."
Cons: "Long delay - forced to sit in plane at gate. Very little cabin air. Stuffy and very hot!"

Cons: "Horrible service, part of the ceiling light came off, got so hot when we were boarding - I was nervous that there was a big issue with the plane"

Pros: "Good leg room."
Cons: "Got food poisoning"

Pros: "Price is good. And the airline service is also great."

Cons: "Extremely poor food. Totally tasteless rubbish. Not at all what we ordered : Pure veg Indian food."

Cons: "Airline didn't make an effort to hold the connecting flight. Also tried to book passengers two to a room for the 24 hour delay. Delay did not come through on vayama/kayak systems so when I called vayama they couldn't help because they thought the flight had departed on time."

Cons: "Terrible ticket change process"

Pros: "Beautiful and helpful staffs"
Cons: "Their English level too low"

Pros: "Everything was ordinary. Nothing special."
Cons: "Food was terrible and yuk!. The attendents need to take a course on spoken English and how to be polite . Entertainment set Sucks! Only Chinese stuff. Need to add more English on a international flight. Could do a better job cleaning the toilets !!"

Pros: "entertainmanet was pretty good. crew was kind and give us enough pillows and blankets."
Cons: "around middle of flight, bathroom condition became too smelly and was difficult to use."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Without asking or choice, I got stuck at the back of the plane, which was noisy, bumpy, & somewhat smelly."

Pros: "The plane tickets were cheap, but I guess you get what you pay for."
Cons: "Airport staff in Beijing was rude. We boarded our plane and then proceeded to sit on the runway for 2 hours during a known weather delay. Airplane was very uncomfortable with few movie options. Flight attendants were rude on every flight I took with air China. I guess this was an improvement as the entertainment system was broken on my way there. My luggage was lost both ways of travel. In trying to report lost luggage, the desk attendant was rude and not helpful. She wasted about 30 minutes of my time just to tell me she couldn't help me. She should have told me that initially when I described my problem to her and she didn't listen. This delay caused me to miss my connecting flight. Overall I had a terrible experience and will never fly Air China ever again!!!"

Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment offered, and the hot jasmine tea was yummy."
Cons: "They did not give us enough water for a 12 hour flight. They only came around four times – once before the two meals and once after – and they only filled up the small cup about half way each time. I left the plane dehydrated after the first flight. On the return trip, I bought a bottle of water in the terminal to take on the plane, but they confiscated it at the gate. I've never had that happen before, especially since I bought it past security in the Beijing airport. Since they took it, I probably annoyed the flight attendants with how much I asked for water, but I didn't really care."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and they let you get drinks when ever you wanted."
Cons: "For the price, no complaints."

Pros: "Great selection of movies, friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Food was ok."

Pros: "I liked that it was cheap and one of the video games would have been really fun had it worked."
Cons: "My touch screen was broken on two of the flights. I was starving because there was no Vegan food. My knees were so bruised that I couldn't walk after the flight because they were so jammed and the person in front of me kept attempting to for the seat back when there was no space. The flight attendants didn't speak enough english to communicate. My baggage was lost. The customer service at baggage claim was rude, and it was a very confusing process finding the bag."

Pros: "So much space for the legs!"

Cons: "plane was late to start boarding and there was no communication about that. After boarding we had to wait about 1 hour for the plane to depart from Beijing causing to land extra late in SFO."

Cons: "there was a gas leak on the plane which caused me a headache and when I asked to move, the stuartesses were very obstructive. I would recommend people not fly Air China again."

Pros: "I like the small screens for tv, games, and movies."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, bad food, and way too many interruptions about turbulence. They could have just said this once, but they would repeat the message in Mandarin and English 3 or 4 times in the span of 5 minutes. We get it. Just say, "Please stay seated" and leave it alone"

Pros: "Good choice of food, both American and Chinese."
Cons: "The crew seem to be a bit more kindly to people who speak Chinese and less so to English speakers."

Pros: "I can't really think of anything really. I guess just having my own tv screen with movies that are false advertise in the booklet."
Cons: "Boarding was all over the place, so as the crew. The food distribution was chaotic. Food was a basic typical airplane food. Nothing really special. Entertainment has different shows/movies than the ones in the book."

Pros: "Seat entertainment, food, cabin staff"
Cons: "customer service on ground was weak."

Pros: "staff, food, attention, cleanliness"
Cons: "crowding, no space to put incidentals during the flight, movie choices. Flying over, we went economy plus. Much more comfortable. Later found out that seats were not what we thought so took economy seats. Big difference in terms of space. (Don't think I got my money refunded either, for their booking mistake.)"

Pros: "There was really anything exciting about the flight. Far under par."
Cons: "Seems like the crew forgot about us once they turned the lights down. Getting water was a mission. They also left one of our bags in Beijing. Getting it now is a mission."

Cons: "Wouldn't let us bring liquids on the plane and didn't go around enough with water."

Pros: "Really enjoy the individual video for each seat and the footrest for this long flight."
Cons: "People opening the shade during the flight and not enforced by the crew. Food quality was horrible!! Did not like the bus ride out to the airplane."

Pros: "I didn't like any part."
Cons: "I hated how they expressed the flight was full and there's was son many available seats. They place me in the emergency exit after I expressed I didn't want to be placed there. I will not be flying air China ever again."

Pros: "Service n food"
Cons: "Nothing"
