I loved all of the entertainment options. The music was relevant, the movies were movies I actually wanted to see, same goes for the TV shows. Also, I really liked that you could play games on there with other passangers.

The food was not very good at all. They didn't have any options besides chicken with rice or beef with noodles. Maybe I just don' t like airplane food and that wouldn't be any fault of Air China.

Honestly nothing.

I asked a crew for analgesic and they can't even understand my simple English. And there's time a will ask for water lucky enough if they remember mostly they forget it. The worst part is the food. I dont know if they have a poor choice of food to serve or they just really serve cheap food. Nothing good honestly speaking.

restroom lines were less due to limited choice of drinks which turned out positive specially when flight was full.

Crew Members are excellent, professional and polite at all times. No one shows their tiredness on long flights. The bathrooms were kept clean through out the flight.

Tight seats through out the flights. I am a regular Tea person. When I asked for tea they give the Chinese green/jasmine tea. I don't think they have regular Lipton or Irish Tea. I ordered Hindu meal, for a airplane food it was OK, it could be better. Only thing travelers need to know, Beijing customs/security has long lines and their security check is intense in the transit for the carry on luggage especially after a long tired flight. For this reason I am having a second thought about flying Air China via Beijing. Also, they have random check before boarding.

Newer planes are good and comfortable. Legacy fleet is a little tired. Service is good food and entertainment is lacking.

Routed through Kumming to the north for a trip to SFO. If you're sloppy booking you and turn a 12 hour flight into a 2 day trip.

Crew is decent. Choice of movies is good.

The earbuds' quality are real bad, like dollar store bad. Portion of food is real small. Only offered snacks once. Could smell cigarette on 4 different occassions, smoke detector even went off once due to cigarette but no action was taken against the passenger. Could smell poop too. Not allowed to use electronic device even on airplane mode, which is ridiculous.

there was zero in flight entertainment - why do they even bother to put a screen above your tray if there's nothing to watch? You could not even view the flight progress / status! No movies either. The food was very bad.

There was nothing I liked.

Things I didn't like: 1. Cannot use smartphones during the entirety of the flight: customers should be warned that smartphones are not allowed to be used during the entire flight. I would not of chosen this horrible airlines if I'd known. I would of gladly spent hundreds more on another airline to avoid this inconvenience. I saved games and movies I wanted to play onto my phone for my 20hr flight and learned from the flight attendant that phones usage was not permitted. What a waste. Plus their movie selections were very limited and a complete joke compared to American, Delta, Virgin, or JetBlue. 2. Food: HORRIBLE TASTING FOOD. Air China should be ashamed of themselves to represent "Chinese food" in this way. I found 3 out of 4 of my meals completely inedible and absolutely disgusting. 3. Most cramped seats I've ever flew in: These seats are just tests to see how much you can put up with flying.
