I am incredibly happy with my Air China experience. Crew worked diligently to create a good experience, and was kind when I was having difficulty communicating. The food was surprisingly fabulous! Authentic Chinese cuisine and tasty. Several passengers did not review the regulations and were pretty rude when Air China crew told them to turn off and put away cell phones. Crew handled this well.

Bathrooms were not very clean. I didn't realize until halfway through the flight that we needed to get our own beverages and throw away our own trash (different than the other airlines)- would have appreciated this being announced. I was confused during boarding process about when to stand and when to board, but watched the people around me and figured it out. We took off late/ landed late, but I was able to make my connection in Beijing without any stress so was happy.

Food was good. Flight attendants were good.

Tiny beds in business class with two-across seating so the window passenger has to climb over the aisle passenger. Are they stuck in the 90s? I won't fly with them again. Boarding in Beijing for Manila was a free for all. Business class was not called first. Isn't this why I pay triple the coach fare? No English language newspapers from Los Angeles to Beijing.

I ended up wasting an entire day Monday and spent another $460 buying a last minute flight because I showed up Monday at 9am at lax to find out my flight had already left Sunday at 10:30pm. As you can imagine it was very stressful driving 2 hours in traffic to GET to lax early to only find out they wouldn’t allow me to board the 11:30am flight with China eastern because my flight was SUPPOSED to be with CHINA Southern Sunday night.

If someone could please call me to discuss the $460 I had to pay Monday evening and the day wasted Monday December 4th I would be grateful. I have booked with kayak.com in the past and have never had any issue. For some reason kayak emailed me the wrong boarding time and airline

everything has much improved from my previous flight from LAX to BKK about 1.5 years ago. cabin was still a bit cold, but flight attendants were able to give me an additional blanket. they ran out of blankets last time i flew on China Eastern. entertainment was higher quality, food tasted better and snacks were available throughout the flight. boarding was also much more organized compared to last time which was like a angry mob scrambling to get on the plane.

No one to assist my friends enter the plane. No one to help with hauling minor carryon baggage up the outdoor staircase. Very difficult and no offer at all for anyone in a party of six to help. No lift and no one offered assistance in business class to help at all.once on the plane service was outstanding. Passengers in 70s and 80’s and no knowledge of the need to to climb stairs and without any assistance. Attendants watched the elderly struggle.

Our flight was delayed for two hours. We have a connecting flight from Osaka to Los Angeles, which we were worried we couldn't make it. They told me the flight will wait for us because there were 20 plus people also need to get on that plane. When the time of boarding we heard they were calling us to the front and explained the flight we were suppose to be connecting already took off. They had to booked us to another airline. We were extremely disappointed! We asked if we could took another Japanese airline but they said our luggages were already transferred to that airline and the tickets were printed! Mosf importantly we have already waited in airport 5 hours and they needed us to wait for another 3 hours! Very bad experience with how they dealing with this situation!

The food on this leg of the trip was hit and miss. The food o. The first leg was very good. They have a ways to go to being their catering up to the level of some other airlines, he is been an overall positive experience.
