Pros: "No..no redeeming features.."
Cons: "Coffee was the worst I've ever had. The 2+1 powdered mil and coffee stick. Truly awful. But i suppose there aren't many people on the flight who would order coffee..I would even pay extra for a coffee if they had a quality option. Food is comparable to a school canteen. I would probably pay 20rmb for this in Shanghai. Frozen butter for the half-frozen bread. They really couldn't do worse..."
Cons: "MORE water"
Pros: "Seat was great."
Cons: "Food courses should be delivered slower. It’s a race to see how fast all the courses can be piled on to you ."
Pros: "Being in economy seats for 12+ hours could have felt more cramped, because I'm a big guy. However, there was adequate space as long as the kid in the next seat has had adequate parenting. (That was a problem, but I can't blame that on the airline.) The flight attendants were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "As others have said, the food wasn't great. It's kind of a cross between Chinese and western fare, but it's edible. Also, the economy seats were a little hard. I sat on my memory foam neck cushion to give my butt a break."
Cons: "After checking in for 1.5 hour, the crew told me that my name is not in the system 15 mins before boarding. Of course, I could not get on that flight. Result, staying extra 12 hours in the airport plus force to stay one night in Guangzhou."
Pros: "Timing, Price, Service, Food,"
Cons: "The staff just took my husband and my passports while we have layover at wuhan. The Wuhan airport has nothing. The person who took our passports kinda detian us in the airport!! Is this legal? They also delayed our layover from 3hrs to 13hours layover in Wuhan airport! Nothing right about this!"
Pros: "The crew is very friendly , hard working and helpful."
Cons: "Leg room in economy is tight"
Cons: "We had to stay overnight in Guangzou because our connecting flight to Los Angeles left already coz of delays."
Pros: "Boarding was fast even though the flight wa delayed and they allowed me to sit in a different seat since the flight wasn’t full."
Cons: "No vegetarian option. There were still sausage with my egg. No entertainment system. Not everything was translated to English so I didn’t understand what was going on."
Pros: "Food was better than expected. Beverages available onboard were great. In flight entertainment was awesome. Chill music for when I'm reading my books and working and really recent movies I finally have the time to watch."
Cons: "snacks and water were haphazardly just lying around at the back when I walked around to make sure my legs didn't die from the 16 hour flight. Even though it should be a much less busy time to be assisted, air hostesses would just point you to the drinks when you ask for water or whatever, which explained why the back was so messy because essentially it turned into a self service snack bar. I observed this for both of my 16 hour flights."
Cons: "Flight was late. Disembarked at the China Southern repair building. Miles from the terminal"
Pros: "The service was outstanding. They had a person waiting as we got off the first flight to guide us to the second flight. The stewardesses were attentive and outstanding. The seats were comfortable, the food and movie optons were top notch. I can't recommend business class highly enough."
Cons: "I loved everything!"
Pros: "After traveling on the large US carriers China Southern is a breath of fresh air. Nothing is too much trouble for the cabin staff who were absolutely fantastic. The price was super competitive. Will always try and travel with them on trips to Asia."
Cons: "worst food, service and we also didn't received our bags"
Pros: "Flight went quicker than expected."
Cons: "China southern management completely botched the handling of this flight. Mechanical issue turned into a 6+ hour delay. Passengers given no updates. Held on plane for 4 of those hours without updates. Toilets were not flushing and reeked the interior cabin. Passengers wanted to leave and get hotel accommodations but were not given such options and were trapped on plane. Passengers began confronting and arguing with flight stewards. Still no updates from captain during whole ordeal. People were very agitated and trust was lost as flight attendants seemingly forced passengers back into their seats abruptly. Some left plane due to feeling unsafe to fly."
Pros: "The food was the best I've had while flying. Great entertainment selection. Generally smooth flight."
Cons: "Our flight had to be diverted because of a storm. Once we deplaned, the flight crew disappeared and offered passengers no guidance of what to do next. I expected some level ownership from them on helping figure out what to do next."
Pros: "Basically I didn’t like much. Food was terrible, individual tv entertainment wasn’t available on my return flight A330."
Cons: "Food , tv, many hours of waiting for boarding"
Pros: "Ontime departure"
Cons: "Nothing special. Entertainment system was intermittently working requiring reveal reboot. Food just average or perhaps slightly below. Customer service was fair but not to the caliber of other Asian airlines (e.g., Cathay Pacific)"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Have to take a. Bus to the air field to get on from airport terminal"
Pros: "Crew super helpful"
Cons: "Our in-seat entertainment unit keeps having problem. In the end I still managed to watch the movies but it's not too pleasant having to press the button to start/pause again and again."
Pros: "Not crowded."
Cons: "Waited three hours at Shenzhen airport before I could check in for my flight. Then waited two more hours in a dismal VIP lounge."
Pros: "I was especially impressed by their punctuality especially given that most flights out of China are delayed."
Cons: "The food was not very good. The dessert tasted artificial but I suppose for airplane food it could have been worse."
Cons: "I reserved the wheel chair service but when I checked in at the counter with the wheel chair symbol, I was told they changed the counter to the other one which is far away and they also rejected to help me check in there. I had to move to the one with a long queue to handle those standby customers. This is my worst experience ever. The service of China Southern airline is becoming worse and worse. Never recommend again."
Cons: "I missed my flight due to certain inevitable reason and kayak or China southern both didn't wanna help me in such case."
Cons: "Vegetarian options would be nice."
Pros: "We departed 50 minutes late but still arrived on time. Great entertainment options made the flight go by quickly (also, slept for the first half). It's not super comfortable in economy, but it's completely fine for economy and you get what you pay for. Attendants were also reasonably nice, nothing that stands out good or bad. We got the Asian vegetarian meal and it was pretty good for airplane food -- two Indian-style meals served at either end of the flight."
Cons: "Not much to complain about. I think people forget that if you're paying $700 for an economy roundtrip to a Tier 2 city in China (SFO - CKG), this is a great deal and a very decent delivery overall."
Pros: "I love the amenities provided by this airline. They give you pillows, blankets, headphones, and magazines. I love the attentiveness of the staff. They provide drinks, meals, and snacks during the scheduled time. If you need something else, then they are happy to help you. The staff really helped us with the temporary visa process during our layover in Wuhan!"
Cons: "My entertainment monitor was not working during the flight to Guangzhou. I listened to music on my own device for entertainment."
Pros: "Overall service, layover arrangement, on time, cabin service/cleanliness etc."
Cons: "Crew speaks only Chinese just because I am an asian and I am not."
Cons: "Music only to listen to, but headphones only worked on one side. Middle seat (B) didn't recline."
Pros: "Every thing on time"
Cons: "Flight was change to China Airlines"
Pros: "see above."
Cons: "n / a"
Pros: "The flight attendents were helpful when a few of us passengers required different seats due to varying circumstances. Even I had changed my seat once because two seats became available next to me and the seat I was in was quite crowded because of a very large passenger next to me. So I switched my seat. Later, the flight attendent asked me to go back to my original seat because they wanted to give those two seats to someone else who was also having an issue. Even though I didn't want to, the flight attendant was very kind and patient and considerate. It ended up being fixed well to the satisfaction of all passengers by a bit more switching around, and all were accomodated."
Pros: "Delta flight with Delta service. All was very good."
Cons: "The food selection could use a change with more fresh ingredients. We were offered two hot dishes but both were almost exactly the same. It would have been nice to have the lunch portion be or dinner portion be different."
Pros: "All of the flight crew spoke enough English to be helpful and kind. All seats come with pillow and blanket. Good and plenty food for an internal flight."
Pros: "Entertainment is a 5 star. So many movie and TV options."
Cons: "Food made me sick... sick before I even arrived at destination"
Cons: "smooth trip! no hassles"
Cons: "They kept one of our luggages back in China... 'Security' reasons. They took my shells I picked from the beach. Who does that???!"
Pros: "Last-minute ticket available"
Cons: "Customer services really sucked! All the flight attendants don't even speak proper English and you cannot use any mobile devices or laptop during the flight, even if it's on airplane mode. Overall, I would suggest checking out other airline options before you pick this one."
Pros: "Same like Urumqi flight"
Cons: "Same like Urumqi flight"
Cons: "This airline needs to get it together with the delays. To keep it short, I will not fly with this airline again."
Cons: "Chicken in our meal had gone bad. Crew very apologetic. Then the plane was terribly hot and crew kept making excuses and the problem was never resolved. Faucet in the bathroom sprayed everywhere. One of the worst flights I've ever taken but not so off the mark for Chinese carriers"
Pros: "Very long flight. Crew was very polite and helpful!"
Cons: "Window exit row seat was narrow and very uncomfortable on my hips which created some pain in my back and hips during the long flight. Had to stand whenever possible. Tray table was very small and pressed against my stomach making eating very difficult. Had to keep one hand on food tray and drink at the same time or it would slide off."
