The food was better than other airline. The flight was half full, I can sleep the whole roll seat. The flight attendants were nice.

The movie was the same going and coming back. The touch screen was not quite working.

An hour delay due to airport congestion and prevailing winds, but can't control that!

Crew was very friendly.

Having to pay for baggage on an international flight and no better snacks available without purchasing them.

Flight cancelled due to weather, the workers made it seamless.

Had to tack on extra expenses for food while waiting for the next flight. Should have gotten some type of vouchers to cover meals at the very least during cancellations. That would be next level.

Not great food, but that's ok.

Mediocre 2.6

The fact that the in-flight meal was as cold as the crew, and you got to pay for that coldness. Just love it! You get me right?

The Montreal-Vancouver route was by far the worst. The attitude of the crew was denigrating and arrogant.

Had an aisle seat.

I thought boarding was more difficult than normal with the gate configuration. Hard to hear announcements.

The checkin counter experience was not good. I had business class tickets but was checkin at an Economy counter resulting in my boarding pass not being for business class so when I went in to immigration lines and throughout the rest of the process I did not receive priority that Business class should have received. In addition when I enquirer about TSA preaplroval at the counter I was told Chicago does not have preaplroval at Terminal 5 but in reality passengers with TSA-pre were being sent through the lines without having to take off their shoes and laptops etc. overall the checkin process should have been much more informative.

the transfer process for 'transit stops' in Shanghai was cumbersome as there is not 'transfer' counter from AirChina to assist you. Everyone had to pass custom as new arrival foreigners, wait for '24-144hr transit visa check', go out of custom to arrival point, then re-check-in at AirChina counter as new departure, go through security again and be stamped with a departure visa check!! If you have less than 2hr transit stop, be sure you tell Chinese airport agents to expedite your process, esp if you have checked-in luggages! Good luck!

I was given the chicken dinner when I asked for the beef one - did not realize until the flight attendant was far away so I couldn't switch. This was a 13 hr flight - attendants did not offer water during the flight. No video options in English, only 1 channel on the screen on my seat, movie played on screen in front for all passengers to watch.

Food was good. Flight attendants were good.

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