Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was nice, the food was good. We did miss our first flight, so we were automatically rebooked on a new flight."
Cons: "We missed our first flight because of our connection."

Cons: "Terrible service. It’s a nightmare to fly with. And I have a baby with me that even worse to fly with Eva."

Pros: "Everything great"

Pros: "Eva does a great job, nice personnel, good food...probably better than most."
Cons: "More leg room. (My usual complaint,) Premium Economy Very Nice, but at a premium price. I flew once...nice to be offered a glass of Champagne once seated!"

Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "No leg room"

Cons: "Was not able to board"

Pros: "Economy seats were EXTREMELY uncomfortable, a mannequin would complain and to add insult to injury , the obvious placements of overly extravagant “first class” seats vs regular economy seats , were very off putting. People are sitting on cardboard for hours on end , add some comfort to your seats!"
Cons: "More humanly comfortable seats , I understand you get what you pay for, but having to be deliberately uncomfortable for 13 hours straight is extremely unfair."

Pros: "The seat was comfortable. The crew was very nice."
Cons: "Keep doing the same. Cost is not always the most important."

Cons: "My first meal was kind of burnt, and I wish they would offer a salt and pepper packets. Also, more frequent Rounds to pick up trash would be helpful"

Pros: "Comfortable and excellent hospitality."
Cons: "None."

Cons: "Alaska missing my​ suitcases I​ could not​ get​ them​ on​ time​ made​ me​ annoying"

Pros: "Flight attendants were all nice and friendly."

Pros: "They staffs were very friendly"

Cons: "Seating way too tight"

Pros: "EVA isn't a discount airline. Being the National Airline of Taiwan and a member of the STAR alliance, you will pay a premium price. I was originally being put in a row right behind the bulkhead with no individual monitor and a seat that was extremely cramped because of the tray table. I knew that I would be able to hang for a 13 hour flight and fortunately, the flight attendant was able to move my wife and I."
Cons: "Only one current movie available. Food was bland and not very appetizing."

Pros: "EVA crew was wonderful and hardworking"
Cons: "Did not like our seats and weight limits for carry on"

Pros: "They very helpfull"
Cons: "The chair was too small"

Pros: "I’ve always had a great flight with them. Crew always very nice and very helpful."
Cons: "I have nothing bad to say. Maybe it there was a little more entertainment more movies and tv shows."

Pros: "Great flight and loved the airport! Lounge serves a great meal as does the flight!"
Cons: "Shanghai immigration is slow."

Cons: "Baggage rules on itinerary didn’t match reality. Baggage 7kg was enforced, check in bags almost empty as documents & computers weigh a lot, and cant be trusted to “check-in”. If I had know we could check in four bags free it would have made a big difference. The itinerary says one each, plus one for Premier status, which adds up to three in our case. Not a happy camper. Will avoid EVA when there are other good choices. My wife had advised against EVA to begin with, check-in confirmed her advice. Crew didn’t come by much with water or juice, but they were courteous. Seat belt sign was put on when bumpy, but not turned off for the next hour or two of smooth sailing. “I told you so” was here reaction . . . ."

Pros: "Cute and friendly flight attendants. Food was very tasty. Seat were amazingly comfy - no probs with sore bottom. Cabin area clean. Check-in was very easy."
Cons: "Think seats maybe 1-2" (2.5-5cm) closer than Asiana - knees hitting seat in front and if person leaned seat back, it would hurt."

Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight seated in the exit row 45. I was amazed at the on board service. The attendants moved quickly also in a run without the usual frowns that I’ve seen on other airlines."
Cons: "The exit row seat 45C was too narrow. The cup of coffee I had near the end of flight tasted like halve coffee halve tea. Also the checkin line was too slow. There appeared to be more clocks standing around instead of attending the customers trying to check in."

Pros: "Excellent and responsive service from what must be the most attractive flight attendants on the planet. Seats even in basic economy are very comfortable with adequate legroom for my 250 lbs frame. Food is good with two choices and an option to customize online prior to the flight; and drinks are offered several times during the flight with numerous choices plus hot coffee and tea. Restrooms are cleaned several times during the flight and are stocked with amenities like toothbrush and paste, blindfold for sleeping, lotions etc."
Cons: "Why is the flight to Asia so long? Maybe the pilot could step on the gas?"

Pros: "Very comfortable. Great movies."
Cons: "Not so good on the television shows"

Pros: "I cannot say how much i enjoyed eva air. The stewardesses were wonderful the people in taipei i dealt with were fantastic."
Cons: "The woman i had to deal with in seattle at the ticketing desk was an absolute nightmare. Im heartbroken i dont remember her name because i would happily name her. Everyone else was perfect. The fella helping me even said "i am so sorry, she is awful and makes me very nervous. I will probably fly asiana from now on just so i do not have to deal with her."

Pros: "Never flew with EVA but timely take off and landing. Smooth flight. Kind crew members. I think everything is great because I did not expect a lot from this airlines."
Cons: "I don't know much about Chinese food. Announcement was a bit hard to understand their accent."

Pros: "Friendliness, comfy seats"
Cons: "food,"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and fast help with passengers needs."
Cons: "On long flights over 6 hours , I find that seats become very uncomfortable . I do stand up and stretch if it is available to do so. After 10 hours of flight travel my legs , back, and neck are very stiff and sore."

Pros: "It's like a well oiled engine, they are very reliable every time I fly with them. The service is good and courteous. The in-flight entertainment is wide ranging. The food is ok. Washroom is clean and fresh."
Cons: "More leg room for economy class. :-)"

Pros: "The cabin crew were nice."

Pros: "Great food, clean bathrooms, courteous and efficient service. It was my first time flying with EVA Air and I would definitely choose them again."

Pros: "Reasonable legroom in Economy. Friendly staff. Clean bathrooms."
Cons: "Beer selection is terrible (eww - Heineken) Movie selection is very limited"

Cons: "I did not like the transfer from Eva to air Macau. Horrible. Long walk. No one there. No lounge to wait 5 hours!! I hate what happened"

Pros: "Complimentary upgrade based on being star Alliance gold. Thank you"

Cons: "Person in front of me reclined their seat to far and made it very uncomfortable"

Pros: "The price the food okay. The leg room seemed more in economy than other airlines."
Cons: "Not just your airline but a cultural differences how westerners take how they are talked too"

Pros: "I enjoyed the fact that they were organized professional and efficent"
Cons: "My last flight was through United I will never fly with them again"

Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours making me late for the next two flights and ultimately costing me an entire day longer in transit. While I understand these things happen, Air Canada's response to me asking for help was abysmal. Ultimately, they didn't care and told me it was my problem. Sadly, one of the first people I talked to really did want to help and arranged flights that would have gotten me back on track but he was prevented from confirming the changes due to management. I will never fly with Air Canada ever again."

Cons: "My wifi was not working for the entire trip!"

Cons: "Unreliable flight, always late, not staff at the check in terminal"

Cons: "Food was mediocre, I’d expect a bit more for the price paid."

Pros: "You got me there without problems. Even the baggage got transferred. Better if seats declined more. I would pay an extra 40 to have a more seat recline."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Took 3 hours to get our drinks. Completely out of inventory with food and snacks. Very hot on the plane . WiFi didn’t work/ they charged for headphones which i haven’t even heard of. My tray table was completely crooked , i had to place my drinks on my husbands table. Overall, just terrible."

Pros: "LITERALLY NOTHING Trashiest airline in the world"
Cons: "Customer service, boarding, check in desk, LITERALLY EVERYTHING WAS 3rd CLASS WILL NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE EVER AGAIN EVEN IF THE TICKE IS FREE WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE AND I WILL TELL EVERYONE"

Pros: "The crew ensured that all my needs were met while on the flight. Truly a pleasurable experience."
Cons: "Nothing... Can't exactly shorten the distance."

Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."

Cons: "Air Canada cancelled my original flight and it was difficult to reschedule. Customer service wasn't great."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was unable to board because I didn't have an ETA - I was unaware of this requirement until check in. I was only transiting thru Canada - the ground staff were horrible."

Pros: "Good meals and services with beverages"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Excellent service in business class: attentive, cordial, not intrusive."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "The Air Canada counter officer do not help me at all. She only told me to call Air Canada which I can not since the Shanghai office is close and the US number did not work. I ended up bought a new ticket with AA."

Pros: "It is always a pleasure to fly with Air Canada! The staff is always friendly and helpful and they provide great in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms on this plane, constant line for bathroom."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Better luggage Service"

Pros: "Service before boarding was excellent. Checking in as long as the boarding time was efficient and fast. In flight service was okay, flight crew was helpful and friendly. The selection of entertainment was excellent. Good international films, in addition to the monocles 24 hours radio station. However, the food was mediocre, there was not enough food for a flight of 11 hours."
Cons: "I didn't like the amount and selection of food."

Pros: "movie selection on international flight was great."
Cons: "Had a serious delay, which was not acknowledged in anyway. We just waited near the gate for a long, long time. Also, for one of my flights, my group number was never called. I asked the flight attendant about it (when I passed through the gate after most other customers had boarded) and she flippantly responded with something like, "Yeah, maybe I didn't call your boarding zone. I don't know. Whatever." This left a terrible first impression on me."

Pros: "Nice plane."
Cons: "WAY too hot."

Pros: "Nothing. NOTHING."
Cons: "It took two hours to check my bag at the airport. The plane engine needed to be jump started, and I missed my connection flight to Paris. I had to spend an entire day stuck in Toronto, sick from terrible Hotel and airport food, cheap vouchers for terrible food, I missed my traveling companion who made the flight to Paris. I left my hat on the plane after the terrible flight in which they refused us any basic courtesies for the numerous passengers who were about to be stranded, and then the grooming crew kept my hat instead of turning it in to lost and found. Best part? Customer service told me that since I booked via Kayak, that I was not a valued customer and that they would not extend any courtesies to me for destroying my work trip itinerary."

Cons: "Took forever to board"

Pros: "Friendly service is so important to me - and the staff and flight crew at Air Canada met all my expectations. I had the displeasure of flying United on the way to Seattle and I must say the service at Air Canada is far above!"

Pros: "The ciabatta buns served with the regular meals, looked lovely, as did the regular meat meals. Unfortunately, I ordered the Hindu Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Usually the Hindu Vegetarian meals are quite nice, but these ones were not. I have eaten a lot of Indian and Middle Eastern food, and I could not identify what this was supposed to be. The basmati rice had the consistency of oatmeal. The first meal was tasteless and the second meal had too much hot spice, but still no flavour. The bread they gave with the meal was tiny and tasteless compared to the lovely ciabatta rolls served with the regular meals."

Pros: "Short, comfortable seats"

Cons: "Flight delayed again and again. Waited for hours at the airport until they cancelled the flight."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Food was terrible especially for Prem economy. Chicken dish very bad. Difficult to get a second glass of wine with main meal."

Cons: "my language has been lost !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "I was too tall for the seats and the person in front of me was unable to put there seat back, they wanted me to trade with someone else but the. I just would have been a problem for someone else. The steward made me feel as though I was at fault because I should have payed the extra 100 to have emergency exit seating, they tried to get me to sit in the very back row of the plain and sit sideways across the two seats which means I would not be able to sit next to my fiancé. The whole thing was embarrassing and very rude, maybe people of 6'6" should be charged for emergency exit!!"

Pros: "I was not charged overweight for going over by 2 pounds since I had a Business Class ticket connection to my final destination."
Cons: "For an almost 4 hours, 400 USD international flight I would have expected to have at least a snack to eat a one luggage to check in on the price. I am an international traveler which doesn't have a choice but to carry a suitcase. Not to say that once on board I was requested to check in my carry on because there was no room on the plane and that I had to travel with my personal item on my feets since there was no available room at the over the head compartiment since I was identified with Zone 5 boarding."

Pros: "Service in the cabin was great."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"

Pros: "Comfort. Individual screens"

Pros: "Superb experience all around....comfortable, clean, good entertainment, on-time, good food curteous crew!"
Cons: "Nothing- we will definitely travel with you again!"

Pros: "Econamy class allows 2 piece of bag."
Cons: "I only have one bag. My bag is weighted 57 lb and charged me CA$100.00. They should have averaged 2 bags' weight and I should not have charged CA$100.00. I think the service is poor."

Pros: "Didn't have much good with air canada. Some of the worst customer service I've experienced. Flight was fine."
Cons: "Boarded an hour late, made us miss our layover even though they said they were holding our following flight to Tokyo. The both of us along with 10 others on our flight got to the gate 10 minutes after the flight was supposed to leave and they wouldn't let anyone on. Missed the first day of our honeymoon trip along with unrefundable hotel fees. I travel a lot and never had an experience like this before."

Pros: "I accidentally left my tablet behind when I disembarked. The crew located it and brought it to me speedily while I waited in the baggage area. I'm truly grateful and impressed. All of the flight crew were delightful and thoughtful."

Pros: "The flight was less than an hour. So I don't expect anything."

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Why is there no TV?"

Cons: "You"

Pros: "That the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "When I flew to Toronto the plane left 15 mins late but arrived an hour an twenty min late. No turbulence or trouble, just late. I stepped off that plane to my connector to Paris when boarding was suppose to start but that plane was on an hour delay. The food is just horrible, anyone who has flown knows this, and on both flights first class was the only priority. They got to everyone else when it was convenient. This was my first time flying with Air Canada and will certainly be my last. I'll happily pay a little more for the other airlines. So if you fly with them, good luck to you."

Pros: "Crew was nice but customer service at the airport and over the phone is terrible (takes over 30 min to speak with someone and a few times they hang up the phone)"
Cons: "Luggage was delayed for over 36 hours and customer service hotline was useless."

Pros: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"

Pros: "New plane lots of comfort"
Cons: "Canadian airport very confusing got lost twice even with directions."

Cons: "map was broken halfway into flight"

Pros: "Normal economy flying, you get a seat and line to the bathroom. I am thankful we are not traveling the old ways. I am over expecting too much when you don't pay much for it."
Cons: "Paid for breakfast but did not get it. However, I did not say anything to the attendant."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When I arrived in London my bag was not on carousel. I went to help desk to find out my bag was put on the next flight for some reason. No explanation given and no real accommodation given except telling when the flight would arrive. I guess I luckily only had to wait an hour, however it shouldn't be that way to begin with."

Pros: "chairs a little bigger"
Cons: "the staff are indifferent to a point of being rude. The food is dismal and their cost cutting measures really reflect how bad it has become. It functions like a budget airline now. Try to learn a thing or two from the airlines like Cathay Pacific, Singapore airlines and Qatar airlines."

Pros: "I never could take this flight as Air Canada, with its unwelcome policy, needs a transit visa to change flights in Toronto. The sad part is, vayama and Air Canda (mis-spelled on purpose - deserves even less respect) do not even offer a partial credit if I want to cancel. Never am I going to use any of these or perhaps visit a bass-ackwards country like canada"

Never am I going to use any of these or perhaps visit a bass-ackwards country like canada"

Cons: "Delayed for almost 2 hours but keep saying just 50 minutes late"

Pros: "The lower level cabin attendant did her best to make a better impression than her supervisor. I am grateful to her."
Cons: "The purser was not even polite. Was it because she was veiled and I was wearing a cross? I really hope not. The normal economy seats are cramped to an unacceptable level. I will avoid flying MH economy again. Malindo, a low-cost flying the same routes (SGN-KUL and KUL-CMB) I often fly, has a much better level of service than MH, supposedly a full service airline."

Pros: "Terrible airline company. It’s a ripoff!"
Cons: "Honesty. Ripoff!"

Pros: "The crew was very attentive. The pilot landed the plane smoothly. Although had a delayed departure from KUL, we arrived in Sydney earlier than expected."

Cons: "The flight attendants didn't ask me if I need ice cream or any drink but they asked another seat of passages. It's not fair..."

Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Sadly one passenger in front of me talked loudly, for 7 hours straight, took an hour to sleep then talked again for the remaining 5 hours. Not airline fault"

Cons: "Frustrated"

Pros: "The timeliness of the boarding and flight takeoff"
Cons: "The landing. Seemed a little rough"

Cons: "I was incorrectly charged credit card fees by BudgetAir as I paid via debit card and they never replied to my emails or answered the phone. This caused stress as my bank account went overdrawn. Cannot recommend BudgetAir at all. Appalling lack of customer service. Avoid like the plague!"

Pros: "Smooth process all the way from check in to seating to disembarkation"
Cons: "none"

Cons: "lost my luggage. after they found it, they took a week to deliver. no response to my claim for compensation"

Pros: "This flight nothign"
Cons: "Major delay, should have offered passengers water or beverages. Food was very poor, no assistance for transfer on late flight."

Pros: "Smooth flight, great entertainment"

Pros: "Having 2 seats to ourselves"
Cons: "Crew hurried;seats cramped;boarding a pin-had to take watches off;food indifferent;sat on Sydney tarmac nearly 1/2 hr"

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "At least, they let me know the first delay but no further information was given to the 2nd delay. Also, neither the ground not on board staff seemed to be interested in Passagiers. Was a short flight interrupted by diverse visual ads and PRs.."

Cons: "He is cheating telling normal taxi cant for two adualt and three chalidren to buy taket for double price for min bus or van , that person in charge is laieing and not respecting i hope to take acsing because they are the face of malysia visitor and i think no boday will except cheating even for one ringet . If need any details for the person can contact me."

Pros: "Overall is great"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Brand new A350!"
Cons: "Hmm, nothing really. Lucky I was not in a hurry.."

Cons: "Seat back didn’t stay upright so it was uncomfortable when I wasn’t trying to sleep."

Pros: "Nice thick comfortable blankets. Delicious food."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Temperature was very low."

Pros: "Staff onboard were good"
Cons: "Many hours delay at Miri, MAS staff abandoned posts so they didn't have to deal with passengers. Apalling service"

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: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "Food. Arrival arrangements (although this may be out of the airlines control - slow immigration, disorganised luggage collection."

Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "One of our luggage was delayed during transit."

Pros: "Excellent food and crew"
Cons: "Seats rather basic for business class"

Cons: "Initial flight was one hour late....almost missed my connecting flight, bags didn't make it to my destination. Not much help or info given about the late flight and how to connect to the next flight. First plane was old and beat-up."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Canceled flights both directions. Poor airport. Long runway times. When told I was notified about the canceled flights, I was issued absolutely no apologies."

Pros: "On time departure, clean aircraft, generally friendly staff/crew."
Cons: "Breakfast - woken 2 hours before landing, very sorry version of "breakfast" was at best aweful only to then have lights turned off again after service completed."

Cons: "Their app is useless. Not user friendly and always down ! Their staff can't even give proper directions on what need to be done in terms of getting upgrades ! Such a shame how it this airlines is getting from bad to worst. They use to be great and my number one choice , but now they are just a disappointment. I am only supporting MAS because they are my national carrier"

Cons: "Bags didn't arrive at the destination"

Pros: "Smooth flight with usual good in flight service. No issues during flight. check in very smooth and baggage collection very quick"

Cons: "Very uncomfort flight, very bad timing, Food is not good"

Pros: "Plane (A380)"
Cons: "Limited choice menu, some minor malfunctioning seats & screens"

Pros: "Movie story"
Cons: "Foods"

Cons: "Both outbound and inbound flights were delayed for hours. Terrible."

Pros: "Took off on time, landed early, business class cabin was comfortable and food was ok."

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: "Newer B737-800 aircraft Improved entertainment system Drinks"
Cons: "Seat pitch is a measly 30 inches Entertainment system USB has very low current - very slow to charge phones Food taste is very poor"

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: "The cabin crew was welcoming. The flight itself was smooth and on time."
Cons: "The smell of the toilets were really bad. Urine on the floor. I know I purchased economy class tickets but I expect the toilet facility to be better maintained."

Cons: "It appears the staff don't want to be there, long check in queues, poor in-flight service, average food, not even offer water in-flight, plane was dirty, entertainment average, not at the standard for a full service carrier."

Pros: "Delicious food"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "Sorry to say the flight is always late. From Osaka to KL I had to wait 4 hours to connect to the next flight to Jakarta. Than on the way back from Jakarta to KL the flight was late again I just nearly made it for my connnecting flight to Osaka. Overall it was ok but something must be done for delayed flights."

Pros: "Clean and entertainment good!"
Cons: "Food is mediocre, even for airplane food."

Pros: "Cabin crew friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Red snapper was over cooked and rubbery. MH used to have great food. What happened??? IFE system was poor although flight was only over an hour in length - not a major issue."

Pros: "Crew was good in flight."
Cons: "The flight was excessively delayed. What was supposed to be a flight leaving at 2:25 AM left only at 4:15 AM or so. This is AFTER my original flight which I had booked for 1 AM was changed to 2:25 AM."

Pros: "Service excellent"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Service is excellent"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "Nothing special on this flight. Entertainment system didn't actually work at the beginning for everyone on board and had to be rebooted. you would think everything would be thoroughly checked prior to a flight. It started to work about an hour later into the flight."

Cons: "Second flight in a row for a one hour flight and we are delayed one hour. Better just go with a low cost airline then"

Pros: "The food was good. It was nice that they supply wet hot towels before each meal. The seat was comfortable with the price I paid for. The rest room is nice and clean and quite spacious. The L’occitane toiletery bag was nice."
Cons: "It would be nice to supply mouthwash in the rest room. It would be nice to have a foot step at the bottom to open the trash container. The comforter is not washed and smells."

Pros: "Amazing crew and staff"
Cons: "More food selection"

Cons: "Because the first flight was delayed, we had to run like mad men to our connecting flight or else we wouldve missed it."

Pros: "It was ok. It’s a long flight to sit in regular seating. If anyone is flying international I would definitely recommend first class or business."
Cons: "The food will keep you alive but is not that tasty to me but I’m used to American food. They served Chinese food."

Pros: "Amazing crew and service"

Pros: "Yesyesno"

Pros: "crews are kind and help."
Cons: "entertainment system sucks, no internet"

Pros: "crew are very nice, although we took off late in Beijing. we arrived on time in LAX. lots of legroom on this flight for a 5 foot tall lady. the previous airplane barely fits my 5 foot frame."
Cons: "the bathroom would have been cleaned often or would have smelled better."

Pros: "Plane didn't crash! :)"
Cons: "My issues were with the other passengers, not with anything the airline could've prevented. It's a budget airline, you get a budget experience, but I didn't have any huge problems with anything."

Pros: "Yes they where excellent on everyway possible but the 1st hour of the flight was rough."

Pros: "The service"

Pros: "Number of crew and attentiveness; meal service on a short flight and efficiency in delivery"
Cons: "Mass boarding rather than by section"

Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Staff were nice but not friendly. Poor entertainment choices. Chairs were average comfort, could have been better. Worst part was that in a fourteen hour flight they only des us twice. First time I’ve gotten off an international flight hungry. And very limited wine. Only available once or twice during the flight"

Cons: "arrived in Beijing and flight was delayed - unknown departure time. no English information available. waited 2 hours to get info"

Pros: "on time, fast boarding"
Cons: "too many movies that don't have english languages. there is no additional salt or pepper for food serves"

Pros: "Flight was good but my luggage case was broke the two wheels have been broke off make my case not useable as it has two holes were the wheels was"
Cons: "suit case was broke wen I was given it at ho chi ming city two big holes where the wheels was I have taken photos also"

Cons: "The food was not to my liking."

Pros: "Friendly staff, great price"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi on plane"

Cons: "Our luggage was delayed and we didn't have clean clothes for the first day."

Pros: "Good service, comfortable seats"

Cons: "Entertainment screen is fault."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Everything els was disapointing"

Pros: "The flight waited which I'm sure is a complaint by others. This is due to the very inefficient transfer process in Beijing."
Cons: "Zero entertainment. I know it's only a 4-5 hour flight but still."

Pros: "Food and comfort of the flight"

Pros: "Boarding is quite ordered, on time"
Cons: "Gateway at Beijing Int Airport designed to/ from US bound is very far at the end of every thing, and even though they are doing their jobs as what of required, flight attendants need to put more smiles and greetings to customers. Food is somewhat just ok to fill your stomach."

Cons: "since this portion of my flight was cancelled by air china they tried to book me on the next day but my husband decided to come meet me in beijing after getting me a hotel and driver to pick me up the night that i was stranded. i told air china not to book me on the flight the following morning that i wasn't going to take it. they never did that and ended up cancelling the entire remaining flights on air china. this was the worst experience with an airline i've ever experienced."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and good for an early morning flight and I like that there were only two and not three seats on the side by the windows."
Cons: "The plane had no individual entertainment options and didn't allow use of phones/electronic devices, so was a pretty boring flight."

Pros: "Crew was good Food was decent"
Cons: "Flight departure time is very inconvenient. Room to improve food variety and quality"

Pros: "Smiles of flight attendants and services"
Cons: "Flight delayed, limits of food choices"

Cons: "Long delays zero communication to passengers."

Pros: "The flight attendants were polite and attentive. Most spoke English or made some effort try. Flights were on time staff was super helpful. Meals were great!"
Cons: "Seats were a little cramped of your a taller person like me (6'2"). Very few English options for on flight entertainment."

Cons: "was delayed, need to change flight to 1430"

Cons: "Beijing airport was under construction. There was long delay."

Cons: "Flight was canceled. Customer service was incredibly unprofessional."

Cons: "Poor customer service and flight delays"

Pros: "Everything seems to go smoothly, the flight was good and we landed on time."

Pros: "Everything worked, boarded quickly and crew served passengers efficiency. Luggage was already on the conveyor belt when I arrived."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that they closed the ticket counter 1hr and 10min before the flight left and I missed my flight! Then when I asked the man he said well you should always be an hour and a half early. To bad we are going home... I am a United States military member who was home on leave and this was my first time in La. such a horrible trip. I had to borrow money to rebook my flight."

Pros: "it was comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment and food was sub par."

Pros: "Was worried about losing my luggage originally but everything turned out fine."

Pros: "The color of the seats."
Cons: "I was robbed in Osaka, Japan just prior to my arrival at Osaka airport, to leave back to USA. It caused me to miss my air China flight. Upon describing to air China why I was a 'no show', that I was robbed, they had zero sympathy, and demanded a 200-300 dollars flight adjustment fee, but I also had to print out several forms, sign them, and scan them back. I did not have access to those devices- so I was forced to buy an entirely new ticket, spending 650 dollars (had to have a friend back in the states buy it, my card and wallet were stolen). 650 dollars. Guess what American Airlines did for me when I landed in lax, and explained the situation to them? They understood, like human beings, and actually upgraded me on a new flight to Texas (my home). Air China showed no humility, no humanity, and quite frankly I will tell others of my terrible experience on air China."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and responsive to flyers. Enjoyed the free beer."
Cons: "For a nearly 15 hour flight, there wasn't nearly enough for me to watch on their in-flight entertainment. They had only a handful of American movies, and everything else was Chinese. I get it, it's Air China. But you don't see Japan Airlines putting 90% Japanese movies on their flights. Food was no good. You're much better off trying to eat at the airport and bring whatever food you can on board."

Pros: "I enjoyed that there were constant updates on turbulence and the seats were mostly comfortable."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that despite there being of dozens of empty seats with leg room, and me clearly being unable to fit in the normal seat because of my height I was not allowed to move my seat. Also, most of the food was fantastic, but the breakfast was atrocious."

Pros: "The on boarding process was quick and efficient at Songyuan airport. Very clean airport, and pleasant staff. Plane had decent legroom in the economy seating. Food was decent for short flight airplane food."
Cons: "Airline crew never gave any status updates about why the flight was not getting ready for takeoff after everyone was seated and the planes doors closed. Sat there waiting for +30 minutes with no updates. Flight crew never gave immigration cards. Deplaning was a nightmare because we had to deplane in several groups because it was raining and the Hongqiao airport would not let us deplane through a jetway."

Pros: "Even got food on the flight!"
Cons: "No movies"

Pros: "Crew was attentive and accommodating"
Cons: "Seating not very comfortable, average for this age of plane"

Pros: "New plane w/ well designed seating for space, access to bathrooms and roomy overhead compartments. Attentive personnel & good food--Eastern/western mix. Direct flights from west coast w/ reasonable schedule at gopd price. Recommend."
Cons: "If you book other than Air China, cannot check-in online, but only at airport. Any follow-up (ie seat assignments) must be done by phone w/ endless waits (although I was never disconnected in the end). Didn't really like the movie choices--mostly for kids, or action. I watched Cinderella and a story about a British skier. Ok."

Cons: "the flight was delayed for more than an hour"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "stopping in Beijng is very hard. it was hard to ride their transfer bus, very crowded, the driver would just stop hard not thinking that there were people standing in a very crowded bus. getting off the airplane is very hard when you have to get off the plane using portable stairs especially with older people. we were given 2 choices for the main entree when food was being served, but our choice was not available anymore so we were given the left over instead."
