Pros: "Philadelphia-Doha was excellent and noticeably better than Doha-Bangkok. ood, service, condition of aircraft were all better in the PHL-Doha leg. I have done the trip a few times now so it is not a fluke. Odd that the Doha food (and I usually get the local dishes) is very so-so. I usually only take a bite or two. Not appetizing. The Doha-BKK staff was less professional as well. The trays of the main meal were left with the passengers so long, we passengers started to bring our own trays to the galley. The plane out of Doha was very tight so passengers in economy have that sardine experience. The cup holders did not work although they would have been useful."

Pros: "Cabin was very nice with modern equipment and food and refreshments were provided frequently. Entertainment options were great too. Cabin crew were very pleasant."

When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty .

Pros: "Lots of movies and tv shows to pick from. Didn't need to bring snacks. Served food several times."

Pros: "Very confusing. United personnel running Air Canada ground operations. Took 30 plus minutes to check one bag because there were not enough staff checking passengers in. Then flight was supposed to be delayed 90 minutes. This meant missing connections so automatic rebooking took place. Flight was then not delayed and had to rebook on original flight. Naturally bag didn't make the trip."

Cons: "Did not reimburse new arrangements. Missed connection due to flight delays on Air Canada's behalf."

Cons: "I had to delay my whole trip one day as the fight was late by 5 hours. I had made specific plans to reach delhi on April 21. Since I am a physician, it wasn't easy to arrange coverage so I could make it to delhi for a particular event. And this delay in flight was a major disappointment and made all the effort futile."

Pros: "The in-flight entertainment system in the headrest was very robust. My children remained engaged for almost the entire 16hr flight...the flight attendants were not stingy with the food or drink and even allowed me to get a beverage in-between the services to take my medicine."
Cons: "The baggage pickup in Beijing took forever! Over an hour after arriving at the baggage carrosel! My car seats were in two different places (on the belt and in an oversize area). On a minor note, I was unable to get a stamp in my passport after using the automated machine...sad...I would have stood in the line to get the stamp if I was told ahead of time..."

Pros: "Decent movie selection on one of my flights"
Cons: "I had booked my Air Canada trip and had a single stop-over while I switched to a different plane. Both of these planes were Air Canada. I Even though I made it through Customs in the shortest time possible, and back through security, I still managed to narrowly make my second flight. They were final-calling my name and actually taking off earlier than expected. Had I been 2 more minutes late, my flight would probably have taken off. I didn't check any bags either, so had I checked one, I don't think I would have made my second flight."

Pros: "Overall I enjoyed the movies provided. In the three week span I had a lot of the movie choices overlapped. However, I found that there were many options provided that allowed me to find movies I had not seen yet even though they were not released within the past 3-5 years."
Cons: "I felt like I was constantly being bumped sitting in the aisle seat. I also was not a fan of the breakfast options."

Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Small legroom, kinda hot inside the plane"

Pros: "We had to book our son on a flight from Phila to Toronto unexpectedly. We had lost our car keys in Canada and had no way to get new ones. (That's a long and complicated story.) our only option was to fly our son up with the spare key. Luckily he had just gotten his passport. He got a window seat and lived the adventure. The crew couldn't have been nicer."
Cons: "The last minute price if $1000 plus!!"

Pros: "I thought the service was excellent."
Cons: "There were some delays taking off, but I don't think it had to do with the airline"

Cons: "The flight was delayed. Air Canada didn't provide hotel accommodation for missing connection. Only reimburse C$100 for hotel stay. The cheapest hotel found near the airport cost C$185. Only gave us C$10 per person for meal. We'll never fly Air Canada again."

Cons: "The plane was up and down twice when it landfall."

Pros: "My flight was comfortable and without any issues. Good was great. The inflight entertainment should have more choices."

Pros: "One of the stewardess is really cute and she speaks French"
Cons: "The cabinet temperature is ridiculously low and they only offer a thin blanket"

Pros: "We boarded very quickly! The staff were extremely friendly and made our thirteen hour ride pleasurable. The inflight entertainment had a great deal of new shows and movies. The seats had a decent size and good enough leg room. The flight was smooth, and we took off at a good time. The food was fairly good as well!"

Pros: "Planes are newer and clean. Seats are okay. The IFE system is great!"
Cons: "The food is below standard. For a globally resurgent airline, CZ should focus on serving international cuisines for the global population it is now serving."

Cons: "Good"

Cons: "If we weren’t delayed for our flight and didnt missed this flight, i would have given a good review and be a good camper. I am requesting a refund/credit for a next flight purchase due to the incident. Please contact me at ayasoliva@yahoo.com Thank you"

Pros: "Plane is nice. Food is relatively good. Service isn't bad."

Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived early"
Cons: "When we arrived most of the passengers ignored the fact that the fasten seat belt sign was still on and started crowding toward the exit, cramming against the people in front. I wish they would have been reminded to be patient and wait their turn to get off."

Cons: "I will never fly with China Southern again- ever. They wouldn't Re-book me on the flight the following day when they wouldn't let me on the flight due to my gate agent not checking me in. Terrible terrible terrible service."

Pros: "10 abreast in economy. A380 didn't feel big. Reminded me of 747. Crew was efficient, nice and polite. Food was mediocre. Two meals ran out wine."
Cons: "I hate Guangzhou airport. It's huge but requires miles of walking. Needs a shuttle or tram. I spent Y20 electric cart, so I could catch my flight. Other Chinese airports have trams between terminals. Donald"

Cons: "the connecting flight from Guangzhou to Xiamen delayed for 2 hours, which made me waited in Guangzhou for 8+ hours."

Cons: "Very red eye flight taking off at 4am, don't know how did they plan flights, one of the worst airlines in the world."

Cons: "I really had bad experience with china southern airlines. The flight from Ha noi to Guangzhou was delayed about 7 hours by mechanical problem. I got in the airplane, then had to get out by the problem. I arrived in GZ about 12am. the wheel of my suitcase was broken. I did go out and asked a staff, but she said that you should claim inside near baggage claim. So it means that i could not go inside, so i got out already. - The flight today from Guangzhou to Ha noi was delayed 1.5hours. It was really terrible experience with the airlines. The food was bad."

Pros: "The ground crew at GuangZhou was very helpful in leading us from our delayed flight to our 2nd flight,"
Cons: "Our 1st return flight from Wuhan to GuangZhou was delayed for an hour, and we almost missed our flight back to the US by minutes as we have to go through Customs. But we had to pay for a cart transportation from the terminal because it was too far away. I felt like China Southern should've paid for the transport service, as it was their fault that we almost missed our flight."

Cons: "Very bad food."

Cons: "We had a bulkhead behind us and our seats didn't seem to have the full angle for recline."

Pros: "The flight boarded early and left on time. The entertainment provided was good."
Cons: "There was hardly any service from the in-flight crew. I've had shorter flights where the crew comes regularly with water, at least. This crew did the least possible, it was worse than flying in the US on an American airline."

Cons: "On a 2:20hr flight they start movie 20-30 minutes after takeoff and turn off at top of descent (22 mins before landing) Why consistently show 2hr (avg) length movies (in the case X-Men Apocalypse), thus on last 3 flights on this route, no movie has been finished. Either start earlier/end later or pick Videos that fit in the time window they offer for viewing"

Cons: "There was no communication as to when the flight would leave so we were delayed without knowing if we would leave or not. The staff was not helpful and when asked a question decided to answer with a yes or no instead of explanations. Worst trip, worst staff I've encountered to date."

Cons: "Bathrooms could be cleaner."

Pros: "cabin crew very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Seats cramped; not enough space, especially for long haul. Provide more space! Earphones didn’t work. Could not enjoy entertainment. Seat would not recline. Slow checking. Not enough counter staff. Check in counter contractor staff inexperienced and held us up for over an hour due to unfamiliar"

Cons: "Seat, food, service"

Cons: "Connecting Time"

Pros: "Pleasant steward"
Cons: "Delayed and waste time at Jakarta airport"

Pros: "The seat I got was certainly comfortable enough."
Cons: "The staff was not enough particular in delivering appropriate food to correct people. In flight KL to Auckland, vegan food was served when Indian vegetarian food was requested. Long queues at boarding in KL."

Cons: "This is the second time - once on the way to Kuala Lumpur and on the way back that we boarded late and thus missed my connecting flight. Sadly Cathay and Malaysia air (which was the airline Cathay used for the return leg of this trip refused to help and put me on an earlier flight forcing me to stay an extra 6 hrs at the airport while being sick."

Cons: "Delayed again. 5 flights of people crammed in gate area 81 - 84. Ridiculous"

Cons: "Quick transfer"

Cons: "For 50 min flight we waited 45 mins in taxi"

Pros: "Attendants were kind."
Cons: "Frequent delays to flight timings, and it was hard to find where the flight gate was as I couldn't find one on the screen. It was a little bit crowded. No food was given (probably because it's only 50mins flight but I wished there were snacks or drinks given for us)"

Cons: "I m dont have my bagage....i sait to long time IN airport and all my médecine ..is inside Nous people replat on page facebook"

Pros: "Overall all was good, except the flight been late."
Cons: "The flight was 40 mins late and because of that, I missed my connection from Hong Kong to San Francisco. Your company then offered me and my friend a hotel stay and transportation to and from the hotel., which was good. I appreciated your company taking care of us. However, it is really bothersome to miss an international connection to go home after a long trip."

Pros: "The regular plane was swapped out for the A380"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Lost bags"

Cons: "The queue to board the plane was very long due to the fact that there was only one person doing the check-in. It will make things more pleasant if they have two people instead of one person."

Pros: "Avoiding the huge queues (lines) in Asian airports is worth gold. Bz class travel on the KUL-BKK sector on Malaysian isn’t great but avoiding the queues at both ends makes it all worth it"

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Two MH flights I took were 1 hour and 2 hours late. The latter resulted in missing connection to BKK and another flight to TPE. I got stuck in Kuala Lumpur for the night and they booked me a resort that was 30-40 min drive from the airport. How are all of these reasonable?!"

Cons: "My checked bag did not arrive at my work city of Singapore. It took 2 days to be brought to my hotel despite my being told they would be on the next flight. I arrived back in Denpasar yesterday and, again, my bags are lost and I again I was told they would be on the next flight. I still do not have my bag. Seems to be a pattern with Malaysian Airways and I will avoid them in the future, Also, I left my Ipad plugged in at the Premier Lounge in Denpasar and realized it as I was boarding the plane. The Malaysian Air boarding staff got on radios and appeared to try to help by telling them to put aside for pick up upon my return. Yesterday, The Premiere lounge said they did not have it despite my name, email and phone number being written on the Ipad. Between Malaysian Air and the Lounge and their lack of concern and professionalism it was not a good trip. As One World Emerald member, I steer a lot of business towards these One World Airlines. I expect better treatment."

Cons: "Losing my luggage"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 1.5hours"

Cons: "They damaged MY OVER 400 Euro suitcase handle and said that they dont take any responsibility!!!"

Pros: "Nothing remarkable"
Cons: "Nothing unremarkable"

Pros: "Crew seems friendly."
Cons: "Business class food is not that good. Menu were not provided so when time to take the order, we have to decide quickly."

Pros: "This was a comfortable flight with nice staff and great food and entertainment choices"
Cons: "No 12 1/2 hour flight can be ideal but this was good deal."

Cons: "When they served satay they didn't ask which I prefer beef satay or chicken one even they asked it to other passengers. After finishing the dinner they took forever to clear a napkin so I couldn't find dinner was finished or not. It was midnight so I wanted to sleep as soon as dinner was finished. When boarding they do security check. It's OK. But why don't they use business class gate even there was the one?"

Pros: "MH389 on 10-Jun'17, cabin crew member (王怡芳), has been very attentive, provide excellent service."
Cons: "Pudong airport ground stuff requested for Singapore identity card; soft copy was presented, both identity and re-entry permit issued by Singapore government. They were not clear, hesitate, call around. By the time they found out what is required, we already spent close to 90 minutes. If it is not due to flight delay, we left with very little time to clear the immigration, security screening and locate where the gate is."

Pros: "Good entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was only one choice - fish (not tasty)."

Pros: "Prompt and great service."

Pros: "On time departure, nice aircraft and entertainment."

Pros: "We missed our flight connection in KL due entirely to our fault. M-Air staff helped us get onto the next flight. Economy was full so we paid for an upgrade to business class but we were seated in first class. Wonderful crew, service, cabin and flight."

Pros: "spacious seat at row 5"
Cons: "The fish is merely edible. No IFE available."

Pros: "Flight to KUL from BKK was a fairly new 737 and had a new entertainment system. It was clean and looked well maintained. Nice ride."
Cons: "Return to BKK from KUL was on a 737-800 that looked like it was ready for the scrap heap. Very dirty even on the outside of the plane. The backs of the seats were torn and spots from drinks and dirty hands on the backs of the head rest. All the magazines were WELL worn and one had gum between the pages. The table top had part of a meal left on it."

Cons: "Only 3 hours to checkin prior boarding for business class. I waited for 2 hours foor checkin"

Pros: "I like the interior of the plane and the comfortable seats. I also appreciate the crew's warmth and efficiency. It was a very short flight hence I truly appreciate the snack and drinks provided and especially the fabulous ice cream treat on the return flight. I would certainly consider taking MAS again in future (this was my first MAS flight), despite the one glitch (please see what I didnt like) if the price is right."
Cons: "I had only one large backpack to be checked in (due to the minimum liquid that can be brought) and it was left at the airport somehow by whoever who was handling it. Waited for more than an hour at KLIA for it and finally made a loss baggage report. The staff at the loss baggage counter was only helpful after finding out that I am not a Malaysian. Needless to say, my bag flew on SQ and was rushed to my hotel 5 and half hours after landing. I also did not receive a copy of the baggage delivery report."

Cons: "Flight delayed for more than one hour. Check in counters not enough resulting in long queue."

Cons: "Luggage was lost. Spent last night and all day today without a lot of the things we needed to make our current stay comfortable. We did not have adequate swimwear, contact lenses solution, and most importantly, my wife's medication. She fell ill last night and continued to feel sick today because she was not able to take her medicine. To top it off, my wife currently cannot find a favorite piece of clothing. It is green, lacy lingerie. We are sure it was packed before leaving our previous destination. Could you please check to see if this piece of clothing was located, either at the airport in Bali or in Kuala Lumpur? If found, please send to our next destination, Pingviman Hotel, Chiang Mai. Because of the inconvenience, including not having our luggage for an entire day, my wife feeling ill, and this loss of her valued item of clothing, we believe we deserve some compensation. We are very displeased with these circumstances and hope you agree that something needs to be offered to us to once again feel satisfied. Thank you for your time. John and Emily"

Cons: "Delay the flight"

Pros: "Cheapest nonstop between KUL and HKG on one of the 3 major alliances."
Cons: "Dated planes, inadequate recline and seat pitch. Economy on MH 737s is POOR, with no recline seats. Pay the extra money and fly business, with MHUpgrade. A 50% bid usually will win you an upgrade"

Pros: "MAS chinese stewardess with excellent performance, very satisfied, thanks a lot and in my flight experience,they are better than SIA."
Cons: "seat not comfortable enough."

Pros: "Boarding and takeoff ,, in time"
Cons: "The food should be according to international standards,, The food on board is so spicy,,"

Pros: "It was barely two hours and that kept me from having to go to a Malaysian hospital."
Cons: "Having Multiple Sclerosis & extreme neuropathy plus being postop with two major abdominal surgeries just weeks before, I called customer service and they guaranteed my medical needs would be met at the gate. They were not and not having a bulkhead seat on the first 2 hour leg from Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur caused me massive pain and circulatory issues - in spite of surgical note requiring it. Not good assistance over phone or in Bangkok."
