Airline reviews

Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the plane was empty so could move for comfort"
Cons: "The food was not very good, the airplane was empty, but assigned seats to fill rows while spouting nonsense about social distancing"

Cons: "Good"

Cons: "I didnt get bulk head seats that are near the restroom for my disabled father. He had a terrible flight"

Cons: "Boarding took forever and flight was delayed"

Cons: "one crew member did not like her job, tossed the food to you, and was not pleasant like all the others."

Cons: "Luggage lost. Tv audio did not work"

Cons: "Air on the plane was stuffy"

Pros: "From the food (dinner and lunch), to the spacious seats, to the impressive beverage selection, there is little I would change. The small touches, including coming through the cabin regularly with delicious green tea, made this a wonderful flight."

Cons: "This was a JetStar flight, not JAL as the title says. I've only had good experiences with JAL. Despite paying for two pieces of baggage, I had to pay an extra charge. One of my pieces was a pair of light skis (5kg, well below the allowed 20kg) that were apparently too long for normal baggage. It is just another way to extract an extra fee. Seat spacing on Jet Star is dismal. Thankfully it was a short flight"

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "PA system was used excessively."

Pros: "Everything about this flight was awesome. The food, the people, the seats in economy felt like first class. VERY polite and happy attendants compared to American Airlines who seemed to be annoyed by those on the flight."

Pros: "Kind and courteous staff"
Cons: "A family with 2 kids making noisy and crying nonstop during the flight the father was playing Japanese video games with headphones on and very careless but once in a wile started yelling at Kiks because they distracted him from his entertainment. Grandma next to them was careless too,mother left the kids to father and was sitting 2 rows in the back and they never came at least to try to make them quiet even when the kids started to kik everywhere licluding the food tray and almost breaks it. Unfortunately the staff never came and try to talk to them about this issue Most of the people including several senior citizens looked angry and frustrated."

Pros: "Hands down Jal is the best airline japan has to offer!"

Pros: "Rebooked me because I went to wrong airport — thanks"
Cons: "The business meal was just okay this time. Not as good as before."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and polite, seats are some of the most comfortable of any airline I've flown (particularly compared to the US domestics), and entertainment is solid (although the English movie selection was not that large). I would definitely recommend JAL to others."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking (i.e., all Japanese style, but not necessarily types that appeal more to Westerners) but it was palatable."

Pros: "This airline is efficient, polite, and has a great business class product. Seats are large and open. Easy to move into different positions. Tv is in readable large and clear with a mini screen in the remote. The food was outstanding. Waygu beef medium rare. Washrooms are the cleanest in the sky. Definite repeat!"

Cons: "Bad seat near bathroom. Smelled like pee entire trip"

Pros: "Inspire of bad weather, the pilot executed a perfect landing !"

Pros: "Thier food tasted excellent!"
Cons: "Wish there was a vegetarian option too."

Pros: "This was my first time to travel with JAL. They take excellent care of all of their passengers. The flights did not seem to be as long as they were. I was very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "The food could have been a little more mainstream"

Pros: "Service was excellent!"
Cons: "It was a great flight!"

Pros: "Ok seats but not quite lay flats. Lay at an angle. Great service by staff"
Cons: "Entertainment selection was outdated. Very dated. The food selection was limited. The cabin was noisy"

Pros: "No wait at JAL business class checkin.....security and immigration were slow, didn't see a separate line for business class if it existed. Access to Korean lounge, was fairly standard. Crew very friendly once on board. Plenty of good food and drink for a relatively short flight."
Cons: "IFE in armrests,not in back of seat in front. Limited liquor options onboard (just chivas)."

Cons: "To Osaka was very good. Return flight back to US was mediocre. Flight attendant was forgetful about getting even water even with a half full flight."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours!! No info was given why until we got on the plane. We did not know if the flight was going to get cancelled and if we need to make other arrangements."

Pros: "Beverage served immediately after flight take off. And to follow dinner was nice as well as breakfast in the morning. Coffee could be better but overall a pleasant flight."
Cons: "There was no vegetarian option for food."

Pros: "Excellent customer service"

Pros: "The food is good. The seats for regular economy are a bit more spacious. They also have some deal with fast food restaurants, Mos Burger and Yoshinoya so sometimes you can get their air version of the fast-food meals. I had Yoshinoya and it was pretty good. The entertainment was okay, the only 2 things I wanted to watch was John Wick 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but the movies change every month so it was probably a bad batch. Also free toothbrushes and toothpaste available on the plane and a self service snack area. Overall it was great."

Pros: "Economy seating the best in the business."
Cons: "Old movies"

Pros: "I am looking forwards to using them again! I paid more using this airline than their competitors. But after completing my trip I will have to say it was well worth it and will using them again."

Pros: "I liked the overall service and professionalism."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was limited, it was an older system I assume as the screen was not touchscreen."

Pros: "JAL has customer service that no other airline comes close to."
Cons: "Nothing, JAL is perfect. I mean it"

Pros: "Enjoyed the greeting, politeness and food"
Cons: "More English speaking would be preferred"

Pros: "Excellent overall, crew is very attentive and courteous. Food is better than most airlines Every thing is fine. Boarding is orderly. Crew very courteous. Movie selection is good.. We have been flying JAL for a few times and never regret"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The crew and service."
Cons: "No entertainment. No snack either."

Pros: "Comfortable and spacious for economy class. Very helpful staff."
Cons: "If I have to be picky the movie selection didn't seem great."

Pros: "Our flight TO Tokyo from Honolulu was wonderful! Our seats were spacious, the plane wasn't filled to capacity, the in-flight entertainment was the best I've ever seen, the food was amazing. On our flight BACK, the crew was still wonderful, and the boarding process is quick and efficient."
Cons: "Aside from having to take the red-eye, the seats for our return flight were the most cramped I've ever been. My 6' husband's knees were touching the seat in front of him, and the seats were super narrow. I can't remember being so cramped in my entire life. That's really my biggest complaint, but when the flight is 6 1/2 hours, being cramped gets old really quick."

Pros: "that it was actually flown by JAL not china southern"
Cons: "the confusion of having one company selling another's tickets makes finding the gate difficult."

Pros: "Everything from start to finish was awesome. The "poor" review by someone complaining about a gluten-free meal is typical of Americans that feel entitled. You are on JAPAN airlines... you do realize the non-gluten-free rice is a staple of the country. It's akin to a Japanese person complaining that there aren't chopsticks provided with the meals on an American Airlines flight. How were the staff supposed to help you mid-air? Mid-flight dock so one special meal can be provided for you? How about this: take some personal responsibility and purchase your own gluten free food for the flight and carry it on. Really... how can one compare the 787 with individual on demand entertainment, roomy seats, full meal service (they'll even bring a meal to you if you were asleep during the normal service), etc... all for no extra charge?!?!? It is simply amazing what JAL (and every Japanese company) sets as a standard for customer service."

Pros: "JAL is curteous and professional. They had a flight attendant dedicated to helping me and my infant daughter and provided bassinet and assitant with luggage during the flight. Totally different experience from American carriers like United who treat you like cattle. I hope I can fly with JAL again soon. They are incredible. I was super satisfied."

Pros: "The bathroom is super clean."
Cons: "Maybe you can make some alterations with your meal offerings."

Pros: "As always on JAL 787-8 long haul flights, the crew was very courteous, entertainment was varied, food was alright and seats were better than some."
Cons: "The JAL first-generation 787s don't provide the great legroom that newer planes do, but is still infinitely better than older 767s and 747s."

Pros: "everything is much better, everything! including how boarding and de-planing is more orderly than most other flights."

Pros: "Great movie selection, food was decent, good beverage service, good temperature in the cabin, good leg room"

Cons: "Late boarding"

Pros: "Good and polite crew"
Cons: "Business class cabin very mediocre for a state of the art latestBoeing plane"

Pros: "Service N crew n entertainment."

Cons: "We couldn't land in Narita due to bad weather, so we did emergency landing to Haneda to refuel and go back to Narita. But after we got off in Narita, the immigration is chaos. Nobody arranging it and people just going wild, nobody knows where the line should begin. We spent 2 hours plus in the imigration line. So from the scheduled time to arrive at Tokyo 5pm, we get to our Hotel at 2am. Good job Narita airport!"

Pros: "The crew was outstanding and the flight on time."
Cons: "One of the bathrooms was not working properly so everyone had to do with two bathrooms."

Cons: "The boarding time"

Pros: "Fast flight. Made it 12 min earlier to the gate."

Cons: "THERE was NO flight! WTF were you sending me reminders for!!!!! There was complete disruption here, preparing for a surprise flight that did NOT exist!"

Cons: "Tv did not work, internet to bad"

Cons: "75 minute delay on tarmac. At least no connection to make so it worked out but still not a good situation."

Cons: "Poor communications, no apologies"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like that they charge for the direct TV and movies. I really think that should be included. The flight was delayed for a minor repair , for inconvenience, I think they should have offered the direct TV free. I didn't see anyone around us buy it. The crew was OK but didn't stand out sharp in their uniforms. I liked the ANA legs of our trip much better."

Pros: "Free drinks and a snack."
Cons: "United entertainment app doesn't work on all devices."

Pros: "The flight tracker on the Kayak apps is very helpful. Great job!"

Pros: "Plane arrived early and deplaned early. Crew pushed to serve drinks even though there were bumpy stretches."
Cons: "In boarding, putting groups 3, 4, and 5 in the same line works poorly. The size limits on carry-on bags and personal items was smaller than other airlines, unnecessarily so for the latter given the size of the space under the seat in front. United is inconveniencing customers without any justification."

Pros: "The price was decent. The plane was delayed by about 20 minutes, and they worked hard to get us on the flight quickly so we could make our connector flights."
Cons: "For a 5 1/2 hour flight, the only snack we got was one cookie. For the 4 1/2 hour flight, the only snack we got was a very small bag of pretzels. There is no TV. They give you free United wifi that you can use if you have a device to watch movies/TV on, but they don't have any outlets to charge the device, so it's kind of pointless. You have to download their app before the flight starts. I was having issues with the app on the previous flight, so I tried to get help with it before we took off. Our flight attendant acknowledged she heard my question and then just walked off and didn't help me."

Pros: "I liked the flight attendant, who was kind and courteous."
Cons: "I hated the plane. I do not feel comfortable on prop planes, especially one held together by duct tape. My son pointed it out to me inside and outside. The plane should be. out of commission."

Pros: "I rebooked on another flight very easily! That was excellent"

Pros: "Zero. Literally nothing."
Cons: "Delayed more than 4 times. And changed gate. Just terrible"

Pros: "Least expensive and quickest trip"
Cons: "Not always available on return trip"

Cons: "We had to return to Newark due to problem with the plane. So we prepared for a crash landing, but there was little information as to how long it would take to land. So we circled for about 1 hour, waiting to crash land, Little information from the cockpit, and the steward was not prepared for the scenario. Upon normal landing, there was no information as to the next step. Disappointing."

Pros: "Thought it was cool with the screens in the seat even though I didn't use them"
Cons: "Seats were cramped and the power outlet was to hard to reach since I couldn't see it. I ended up just using my battery pack."

Cons: "Very limited free entertainment"

Pros: "Attendants were nice"
Cons: "Switched from ANA to an ANA operated by United. I wish we could have stayed with ANA. Legroom was shorter by at least 3 inches, so knees hit seat in front. Made for an uncomfortable flight, reminding me of why non-US carriers are the better way to go"

Pros: "On time/early"

Pros: "Great flight friendly person sitting beside me, would like seat towards front but my husband likes sitting in back , we had seats in row 27 & window seat for him he likes looking out. It was very enjoyable. Thank you"

Pros: "The low cost of fare. The ease of ticket purchase thru kayak. Convenient e-mail services. United Airlines service was courteous and very handicap friendly."

Pros: "Leg room. The app had movies. Friendly people. Not crammed with passengers. I FINALLY got a window seat"

Cons: "Day I did not select. I'm furious."

Cons: "Sat waiting to take off too long. Not enough of a beverage . No entertainment ."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable. I passed out so couldn't take advantage of the food and entertainment. Nevertheless, I was comfortable enough to take a snooze. Despite the turbulence, Captain remained in control and ensured smooth safe travel."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle. And the bright light from the TV kept turning on because I would lay my arms on the arm rest. Also, airline attendants were not friendly. Maybe, they too needed to take a quick snooze."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seat did not recline at all. I have no idea if the entertainment was any good because I did not experienced it"

Pros: "Friendly staff and working equipment wins!!"

Cons: "A one-way a form from BWI to Denver is $169. The cost of an upgrade for this flight from Houston to BWI was $589. Please explain that United."

Pros: "It was a crowded flight home, I knew that when I checked in online. I was forced to check my bag plane-side...to be picked up at baggage claim upon our arrival. Inconvenient to say the least. The crew announced there was in-flight wi-fi {available for purchase, of course} only to come back on and apologize that the wi-fi was down for this flight. The crew did do beverage service, but never made it to the last three rows of passengers. Overall, just not the type of customer service I am used to from other airlines. I chose this flight based on the price. I don't think I'll chose United again in the near future."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Keep improving for sustainability in market. Best"

Cons: "2nd flight missed due to multiple flights from gate 130. No seats close to gate. Speakers not loud enough. Garbled speakers. To much background noise. Very confusing. Was able to rebook later flight but very inconvenient and not optimum. Also plane was too hot. No air circulation."

Pros: "I got from San Fran to Balitimore in one piece."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, and my seat was one that was oversold. I still don't know how this happens, but it's fine. When I do get on, I'm literally wedged between a rather large man and the window. No ones fault, but comfort was horrible. Crew was nice enough, but I was uneasy when we were about to land, flight attendant reminded us to not take belongings in the event of an emergency evacuation. I'm all for being prepared, but please don't make me feel like we're about to crash."

Pros: "Meh"
Cons: "Our seats were Infront of the emergency exit, couldn't relax. I'm 6'6" , so the incline if the back isn't comfortable and we couldn't recline. We had asked switching seats on our flight to Spokane because we were given the same seats. The airline told us seats were chosen at random and they couldn't control them so we had 4 legs of our two flights stuck in no reveling seats. I was very disappointed."

Pros: "I received my e boarding pass the night before"
Cons: "The boarding pass that was sent the night before had the incorrect gate and no seat assignment. I spoke w THREE agents at checkin and they all sent me to the (wrong) gate- C25 and wouldn't give me a seat assignment. That is a long way to go w a scooter and a bag, only to learn the correct gate is B4. I was the last to board, there was no bin space left. it shouldn't be so complicated."

Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "No problem"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "All"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Part of personal device show of "By the Sea""
Cons: "San Fran to BWI unable to view end. Hubby watched Olympics I refused to pay for two devices."

Pros: "I like that you guys offer the free wifi and entertainment. You guys should offer headphones as well. I had no idea that was offered until I got on the plane."

Cons: "2.5 hour delay. No working bathrooms. Couldn't hear the tv and headphones that they gave out were useless."

Cons: "flight was delayed for over 5 hours and gate was changed over 6 times"

Pros: "assigned seating"
Cons: "Hate the lack of leg room."

Pros: "Over all it was a great flight aside from the rain delay but that's Mother Nature for you"

Pros: "the crew handed out complimentary headsets which was nice"

Pros: "I enjoyed that this aircraft had in-seat entertainment displays."

Pros: "The PRICES are Terrible It went from $81 dollars to $1397 dollars. There timing on changes there Prices are Bad. And I think there seats could be adjusted a little bit more because I have Neck Problems"
Cons: "The Welcoming getting on the flight"

Cons: "Limited leg room. Seat didn't recline."

"Flight was delayed for 2 hours for no reason, then we spent almost an hour after boarding because of the weather conditions. If we left on time we could avoid that 😾"

Cons: "Air China Service was horrible. I missed my flight due to an accident and when I got to the airport they were rude, and did not try to give me a solution. I had no money and I did not speak the language and the only solution they gave me was to call costumer service with the coins I have left. I will never fly with Air China again and I hope the rest of the people do the same. Horrible horrible experience."

Pros: "Food - Free dinners even for economy class. Entertainment - Every seat has a TV that offers multiple languages and tons of blockbuster movies from a variety of genres. They also offer many television shows in multiple languages and genres and video games. Roomy- The seats are as non-roomy as any airplane. However, the flight attendants don't give you any trouble when you want to just get up and walk around and talk to people. It gives the plane a roomy atmosphere. You can go to spacier sections of the plane to hang out."

Pros: "The kind crew"
Cons: "Same meal three times in a row. The flight had to return three hours into the flight. I would like a refund"

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: "More leg room than traditional American carriers. Flight crew is a little different, but would fly them again when going to Asia. I felt safe and was happy with service."

Pros: "The crew this time was outstanding! Also, the food improved much from last time."
Cons: "My entertainment screen did not work."

Pros: "Good food, relatively comfortable for a 13 hour flight"
Cons: "The entertainment system was modern, but not that many good, English-language movie or TV options. I found it difficult to get wine and black tea (they served green) - both of which are essentials for a long-haul flight. Flight was a little late. The security lines for transfers at the Beijing airport is a complete mess, which was the most stressful part of the trip."

Cons: "See above..."

Pros: "Sometimes the flights are half-empty, meaning you can get a full row to yourself if you're lucky."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped for an international flight and half of the foot space was taken up by an installed box of sorts. The "foot rest" also dug into my upper shins the entire flight (I had it in the upright position, but I have long legs). The food was really bad, basically inedible. Not just on this flight but on all the Air China flights I've been on, and both food options are usually identical other than the option between fake chicken or fake beef or seafood. The flight is super structured (referring to my 13-hour flight), that you're not allowed to sleep when you want because they have such a regimented schedule of when to turn on/off the lights, etc. On multiple occasions the flight attendants have turned off my tv monitor while I'm in the middle of a movie just because it appeared I was sleeping. With my 1 hr layover in Beijing that ended up being less than 10 minutes due to a delay, I made the rush through security quick enough, but my bags did not and needed to be shipped to me a day later at my destination. Air China purposefully schedules flights with such short layovers, putting customers' travel at risk. Not a major issue, but the crew surprisingly also had pretty limited English on the Beijing-Washington DC flight. For connecting flights, I have no expectation of English language ability, because it doesn't involve travel to an English-speaking country. However, if you're flying to the US, you should expect to communicate in English well, at least one of the cabin crew."

Pros: "Friendly flight, nice people"
Cons: "Food wasn't good."

Pros: "In-flight entertainment was pretty good - I watched 2 movies and a couple nature documentaries. Food was decent."
Cons: "Seats are horribly uncomfortable especially for a tall person. The "C" shape plus the headrest jutting out so far make it impossible to get comfortable enough to fall asleep and there is very little leg room. I had finally drifted off when my friend poked me awake because they were serving dinner even though there were about 4 hours left in the flight. I was half asleep and had no appetite so I ended up giving them the whole tray back. There was also a shrill toddler several rows ahead of us who was yapping loudly for the entire second half of the flight. I obviously understand that children will be children and it was a long flight, but would have been nice if staff had asked the parents to try to quiet him down as they were not attempting to do so at all. Finally, our bags did not make it onto the next flight in time."

Cons: "Meals need to be improved"

Pros: "Nice carrier. Enough leg room and clean flight"
Cons: "Entertainment had very limited options. I had booked my flight through travel agent vayama. I would never ever recommend people to use that travel agency. It takes approx 35-45 mins to contact customer care, you are way better off taking the tickets from airline as they cannot help much if the tickets are done through agency and not airline directly. Moreover the agency charges additional fee over and above airline fees for any changes"

Pros: "It took me home."
Cons: "Mediocre food, obnoxiously long boarding and decent process, dated plane, limited leg room compared to competitor flights, apathetic attitude of staff and depressing mood on board."

Pros: "Food was okay but nice to have a small snack in between the 2 meals; felt a bit hungry from Washington Dulles flight to Beijing."
Cons: "The problem is the time Air China to make the connection flight. It only allows one and half hour from the flight from Hong Kong to Beijing and the latter to Washington Dulles. When the plane touched down in Beijing, it took over half an hour just to taxi to the gate. I have to run literally from the gate to the immigration and to TSA. I had also cut the line to get to the front so I don't missed the connecting flight. There were people screamed and yelled about our action (I Have 2 other couples under the same situation and don't want to miss their flight). But I finally made the security understand that we were told by Air China (with the red Air China round sticker) that we should cut the line to get to our plane. This is second time happened to me and Air China won't wait to close its gate when departure time arrives. I am not sure what will happen if I miss the connection. I stranded one night in Beijing with Continental couple years ago because of typhoon and was told the airline is not required to do anything for you because of weather related. But the connection issue needs to be addressed as I am sure some of my fellow passengers had missed their connecting flight yesterday. For now, I will stay away from Beijing connection ( ie no more Air China) until the latter makes some realistic adjustment to its connecting schedule. This is not difficult but they need to be aware and lessen stress to its customers. Beijing airport authority needs better facility with properly trained personnel to facilitate the transfer process. I had used Tokyo and Seoul with so much ease. Beijing needs to get up"

Pros: "Arriving"
Cons: "Play flight attendants horrible food movie selection very poor"

Pros: "Crew very nice. Take off on time both times. I liked the movies and games, kept me entertained for 13 hours. The Air China plains, used for domestic flights, don't have any entertainment, even during 3 hours flights. This I didn't like in China."
Cons: "The seats in both international flights were not confortable. The audio port on plane from China didn't work well I had to keep holding it at all times to be able to hear on both ears."

Cons: "Delayed and unorganized No veggie food options"

Pros: "Free wine"
Cons: "There’s no wifi, barely any english speaking movies, and the food is horrible. Will probably never fly air china again."

Cons: "Delayed flight, dirty restrooms"

Pros: "They had decent seats and food."
Cons: "Terrible. First flight was delayed, and there was no help in getting us on our connecting flight, so we missed it. They board us and just stand around for ages. Then we're told we must pick up our luggage and check back in which took approximately 2.5 hours for something that was not through a fault of our own. Then when we reached our second connecting flight, we were told Air China had given us a paper ticket (ie. worthless) instead of an electronic ticket. Do yourself a favor and take another airline."

Pros: "Food is not good for vegetarians,and they missed baggages both the way from and to USA-MUMBAI.. I called them for claim many times but they didn't pay yet.. I bought new bag for Rs- 9,500/- that also they missed on the way back home from Biejing to USA.."
Cons: "Food was not good for vegetarian.."

Pros: "Meals were decent, Staff was VERY attentive, courteous and polite. Ride was very smooth. Didn't hear much from the pilots, which is ok!"
Cons: "The no-phone, no-internet rule is absurd. I could have really used some internet-for-purchase on a 13 hour flight. Some movies were only in Chinese with no subtitles and the games seemed to require a separate controller with X/Y buttons. Overall blah score entertainment. Announcements were too frequent an intrusive, especially when they're repeating the same thing 2 minutes apart. Also, the weird rules--shades must be up during takeoff, but must be down while we were in the air. Seat must be up during meal time. Learn to chill a little China Air."

Pros: "The staff was extremely polite, very accommodating, and willing to serve. The entire experience was overall very good and very contrary to what reviews said online. I would fly with them again in a heartbeat, far exceeded American standard airlines like Delta and American."

Pros: "Food was good, crew was courteous, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Some delays, touch screen was not working."

Cons: "Food was terrible. Drinks are served room temperature without ice. Staff was rude. Tried multiple different televisions that barely worked. They will not let you have your phone on even on airplane mode for music or games, etc. Would not take again."

Pros: "Comfort of the plane"

Cons: "Non English speaker, very rude crew"

Cons: "cannot access the reservation or checkin at Air China site"

Pros: "Very courteous staff at the check-in and very polite and hospitable flight attendants, very efficient and quick in serving."

Pros: "Nothing!!!"
Cons: "No charging ports for your IPads for tables for an over 14 hour flight. Bathrooms were not kept clean during flight. Attendants are rude. Luggage didn't get to our destination. Disgusting Air line."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "1. Very rude staff. Very inconsistent. No customer service skills or people skills. 2. Food was horrible. I wouldn't feed it to my dog. Kids meal was bad as well. 3. Nonalcoholic beverage selection was very limited. 4. Very small English movie selection for a very long flight. 5. Blankets were used and had stains for the previous flight. I've flown different airlines before and never had this many issues. Air China please take a step back and reevaluate."

Pros: "Not much. Size of seat and legroom same as other economy class so although cramped it was acceptable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but no announcements and no change to boarding information posted at gate. Food was inedible and also not enough for the long flight. The major food groups served were white bread, white rice, and more white bread. With some extremely salty and corn starchy food in small amounts to go with. Entertainment system had touch screen that was very difficult to use, 90 percent Chinese movies, and headphone was very unsatisfactory."

Pros: "I hate that u connect me with poi t to point airline that i ly allows for a one check in bag"
Cons: "I ended removing ine of my two check in bag as Myabmar Bational Airline from Yangon to Bangkok only allow one check in bag. Poor connection on your end"

Pros: "I've read a lot of bad reviews of Air China. All my flights with them were excellent overall. They provided me with free transit hotels for over night layovers. The staff was friendly and courteous. The food is what you expect from any airline, mediocre. They offered a variety of multilingual movies, which I haven't seen with other airlines."
Cons: "Food could be better, but so could every airline's."

Pros: "Literally nothing about this flight was enjoyable"
Cons: "Paid for exit row. Was a woman with infant on lap in same row. Staff is extremely rude. Unhelpful. Plane not in good condition. Food is horrible."

Pros: "Direct flight, no layover , price ... you get what you pay for shitty service"
Cons: "staff was rude, food sucked, seats uncomfortable. luggage was lost, no contact, it has t been 3 days, customer no service does not pick up phone. i've tried reaching them at every number listed anywhere on web, phone not answered or straight to voice mail ...... very frustrating"

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Loading was chaotic. I had more issues with the passengers being rude and pushing than the staff. Perhaps a more organized way of loading the plane could have avoided this. The two hours sitting on the runway in Beijing both getting to my destination and the hour delay in Beijing coming home was inconvenient. That was more the airport than the airline."

Pros: "Food is good. Crew is good. The free transit hotel saves a lot of trouble."

Cons: "Everything we're so bad."

Pros: "One of the four flights gave us water bottles and hot towels"
Cons: "Delays outbound and inbound and airport staff did not do anything to help with rearranging connecting flights even though it was known that we would miss the scheduled connection, and it was a disorganized inefficient process in Beijing that took over 2 hours of standing in line and the hotel they arranged for required sharing rooms and a 20min shuttle ride and by that point there was only 3hrs left before check-in time."

Cons: "everything, dont book to justfly, its a trouble"

Pros: "How can you expect people to sit on a plane for 13 or 14 hours and not supply in flight wifi. It is unthinkable and backwards."
Cons: "I will pay slightly more money to get a more comfortable seat and a little more room."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Small B737 air-craft Delays, delays, delays Cabin Temperature"

Pros: "Love watching movies"
Cons: "Super cold and hard to get around and to processed to the next flight"

Pros: "PRICE!!!"
Cons: "The airport in Beizing is not good for smorker. No place for smoking area. It's my second time flighting at Beizing and I should have to have 1 hr delay from the departure as always."

Pros: "I like the movie choice on my screen at the time. However, I think I just got lucky on this trip and was able to watch great movies while on a 14 hour trip."
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that after the first few hours of the flight, the bathroom on my side of the plane was unavailable for the rest of the flight. Something went wrong and it just stopped working."

Cons: "I lost one luggage and is still waiting for Air China finding it."

Cons: "5 hours delay of boarding. No chairs to sit."
