My bag didn’t make it to the final destination. I was one of many people in the same situation who made the same journey originating in SF and ending in Bangkok. We had an almost 3 hour layover in Guangzhou, so I doubt that there wasn’t enough time to make the bag transfer.

We flew economy, so didn’t have incredible expectations. The seats actually had more legroom than expected and reclined well. No complaints for what it is.

The food was pretty terrible, even for airplane food. On a 14.5 hot flight we had 2 full meals, along with some snacks which was decent frequency. However it was so inedible! Luckily we packed our own food just in case. The crew was also pretty terrible, and not because of a language barrier. Didn’t seem to know the basics about food and drink service and often skipped service to people wide awake and waiting.

The 3 employees at the counter got together & solved a glitch in our Australia visa that was priventing them from issueing bording pass for our second leg of travel They were outstanding & also unexpectedly we received a hotel respite for our 8 hour layover in Guangzhou! Smiling flight atendents. This is my first travel with China southern On the other hand during 6 wk prior to our trip we were unable to get anybody on the phone to ask Q or reserve a seat. On line charades where like a closed loops ! The price for long haul: Dubai/Guangzhou/cairns could not be beat!!

Crewmen at the luggage/bags scanning were very rude. Our flight from Manila to Guangzhou was delayed by an hour or so. With all the pressure we were already experiencing and rushing to get to our connecting flight, here comes these crewmen in charge of scanning our bags we're all shouting at us to rush. The delay was not the passengers fault.

Airline scheduled only a 30 minute layover between Shanghai and Hong Kong. Obviously I missed it. Waited 3 hours for airline to put me up in hotel. Hotel was extremely sketchy. I'll never make the mistake of traveling with this airline again. Worst travel experience in many years, and I've been some rough places. Food was Terrible, too.

This ridiculous airline and it's rude, obnoxious staff in Chengdu made a mockery of my friend and I (two 21 year old American girls traveling alone). We had booked round trip tickets back in October 2017 that included a 1 hour layover in Chengdu first, then a 7 hour layover in Shanghai on our way to Bangkok for a trip in Thailand. That was fine with us. Then all of a sudden it changed to a 6 hour layover in Chengdu then an 18 HOUR layover in Shanghai. We decided to deal with it and get a hotel room in Shanghai, no big deal. After a great trip in Thailand and leaving fine from Bangkok to our first layover in Chengdu, that is where the nightmare started. First off, going through Chengdu customs, I don't know if it is because Americans do not travel through there a lot, but the officers pulled us aside and were passing around our American passports around their staff, taking pictures of them with Iphones before handing us "in-transit" paperwork to fill out. As weird as that was, no one really seemed to speak english and we just wanted to get away from them and get through. When we went to the check in counter, they handed me a boarding pass for our flight at 1:50 that afternoon, but then proceeded to tell my friend that she wasn't on a flight until the next morning at 7 am out of Chengdu and our original connecting flight out of Shanghai at 11:50 the next morning was now at 8 pm for her. What could have been simply fixed like it WAS after calling priceline and our travel agent, the staff at the ticket counter and a representative over the phone made our lives living hell. They barely spoke english and the ones that did were very rude to us, saying that they couldn't help us and put us on the phone with China Eastern. FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF we were on the phone with a representative who was talking us in circles, telling us that there were no available seats on the 1:50 and that he could get her on the next 3:45 out of Chengdu, then put us on hold to come back and say he couldn't only change 1 domestic flight in China, but would have to cancel her flight to NY. When offering to pay to just DO IT and get out of china, he said that if he were to cancel it and take our credit card info, it "may or may not go through" and if it didn't she would be stuck with no flights. When asked how that made any sense, he proceeds to say" Because miss, our system sucks," and other rude things like "Why can't you just keep your flight and meet your friend in NY." then him along with a rude ticket counter guy say that he could help us if we took 5,000 yuan out of the bank and paid them cash. TRYING TO SCAM US. After all this drama a simple call to priceline was able to fix the problem no payment involved, and there WERE available seats on all the flights and a domestic flight could be changed. LYING, SCAMMING, RUDE, individuals. Definitely worth a little more money to take any other airline BUT THIS ONE.

Between the legs of my Asiana flights, I had a 9-hour overlay at INC. Upstair in the same area with the pricey and exclusive lounges for elite travelers, there was a "Nap Space" or "Nap Place: a large suite of rooms with maybe sixty comfortable couches to catch up on missing sleep... with no sign-up required and no supervisory staff. And totally free of charge! Every airport should consider having such a welcomed service. Also at INC, bona-fide transit passengers with a outbound boarding pass can take a free shower (soap and towels provided as well?). Wow. These amenities surely make INC one of the least loathsome airports in Asia at which a day-long layover may be spent.

No downside!

FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF we were on the phone with a representative who was talking us in circles, telling us that there were no available seats on the 1:50 and that he could get her on the next 3:45 out of Chengdu, then put us on hold to come back and say he couldn't only change 1 domestic flight in China, but would have to cancel her flight to NY. When offering to pay to just DO IT and get out of china, he said that if he were to cancel it and take our credit card info, it "may or may not go through" and if it didn't she would be stuck with no flights. When asked how that made any sense, he proceeds to say" Because miss, our system sucks," and other rude things like "Why can't you just keep your flight and meet your friend in NY." then him along with a rude ticket counter guy say that he could help us if we took 5,000 yuan out of the bank and paid them cash. TRYING TO SCAM US. After all this drama a simple call to priceline was able to fix the problem no payment involved, and there WERE available seats on all the flights and a domestic flight could be changed. LYING, SCAMMING, RUDE, individuals. Definitely worth a little more money to take any other airline BUT THIS ONE.

On time arrival; professionalism.

The business class seat is cramped for business class standards. I also wanted seconds for dessert but somehow I was made to feel it was not allowed, that the FA has to check with someone if there was enough on board. Mind you the plane was not full.

Okay 5.6

The crew was pleasant and professional. The food was pretty good, though not excellent.

This was a tired old aircraft not up to international standards for business class. The entertainment package was virtually nonexistent. There was no menu, and you just scrolled through channels to see what was already playing. There was no watching from the beginning of the movie, and no rewind or pause function. The video quality was abysmal, as if you were staying in a cheap budget hotel with an antenna TV. There was no privacy on this 11 hour flight, As you sat immediately adjacent to other passengers, unlike on the other long-haul carriers. I have had better experiences in premium economy on other airlines. This aircraft should be retired or seriously upgraded to justify the added expense of business class.

On time, In flight service

Customer Service is not reachable. I was trying to reach given toll-free number for Asiana Airline, but not able to connect from India. There is no alternate number to contact to customer service. I had to spend few hours to update my meal preference.

The friendliness of the flight crew was great. The leg room is better than other airlines.

The lack of entertainment options on my second flight compared to my first one.

I had no idea Asiana is this nice. Crew, food and aircraft were all nice! Had a great time flying with them.

I just didn’t like that they didnt tell me im gonna be seated next to person carrying a dog on a previous asiana flight. Im not comfortable with dogs and i understand they wanna create an animal friendly atmosphere but what about those who are not comfortable around animals?

Check in was fast, the staff was helpful and nice. Simple streamlined process

The website was pretty bad functionality wise. It took me 2 hours and a couple phone calls to be able to online check in for my flight in advance. Then during my trip I was trying to look at what costs and fees would be associated with changing my flight and extending the trip. The website was hard to navigate and offered very little information

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
