Pros: "Was okay. I was able to sleep."
Cons: "The food was so-so, but I had low expectations since I am a westerner and my pallet maybe different."
Cons: "Delayed one hour ..."
Cons: "Boarding at SFO was confusing since attendance gave wrong information so that we kept sitting to wait for our turn. And it ended up kind of disordering. Airline needs to improve this small process while customers waited for so long to board."
Pros: "Good Service and very comfortable business class seat"
Cons: "I could barely fit into the seats since they were so small. Made the long flight even more uniquecomfortable."
Cons: "Food and seats were mediocre at best. Two of the flight attendants that we had the displeasure to experience appeared irritated and when asked for a glass of water we had to wait 30 minutes (after asking three times). On top of that, once we arrived to Tokyo they lost our luggage. We kept phoning the Tokyo desk, but then the airline went on strike and our calls were left unanswered. Japan Airlines, which handles all baggage for all carriers in and out of Narita couldn't do anything either. When they were finally operational I phoned again for two more days with no offer of compensation for additional clothing that we had to buy. Finally on the 7th day they indicated they found the luggage and it never left SF!"

Cons: "My luggages are lost"

Pros: "My 18 year old son was the one who traveled and it was his first time on this airline - he was very satisfied with the trip."
Pros: "nothing, terrible experience"
Cons: "everything should have been better"
Pros: "The food (two full meals) and amenities provided by Aeroflot was wonderful. Staff was helpful on the flight and provided us with plenty of drinks."
Cons: "We boarded the plane at the time the flight was supposed to depart without explanation as to why there was a delay. Then we sat on the plane for two hours without explanation again. Landed 45 minutes after the originally planned time. Our connecting flight to athens was going to depart in 15 minutes, but left us and 58 other passengers. Poor communication to the passengers and then poor communication or help from the airline. If they would’ve waited 15 minutes, 60 people could’ve made their connection. Instead we have to wait 6-7 hours to board another flight. The customer service at the Moscow airport was sad... only two people at the desk for 60+ customers needing new flights because of their unexplained late departure."
Cons: "US bought carry on case been requested to be checked as a second baggage piece for $100 fee. And then both opened lost and not reached destination."

Класс самолета Боинг 777 нравится. В целом очень хорошее впечатление от полета, гораздо лучше, чем от полета на Дельта и Юнайтед в США."
Cons: "Неточность в исполнении расписания ( скорее всего не зависит от аэрофлота). небольшой выбор фильмов для просмотра."
Pros: "the aircraft"
Cons: "almost no english anouncements"
Pros: "Frendly personal!!"

Pros: "Good movies on board."
Cons: "Boarding was late, take off was late, I almost missed next fligt, my luggage arrived to my final destination only day later"

Cons: "Boarding is done by sections not by rows"
Pros: "The entire experience went perfectly. Everything was prompt, smooth, and on time."
Cons: "Nothing. A prepared traveler, is a good traveler. These are different times. Understand there are limitations for everyone. Focus on the basics. Do your homework. Read the airlines’ travel updates. Bring minimal gear. Be EARLY. And lastly, be grateful for getting a flight at a great price. If the flight went smoothly, don’t complain and moan about the little stuff that has nothing to do with getting from point A to point B. It’s a struggle for all of us. Please understand that."
Cons: ". I was shocked to see social distancing was not implemented with no seats apart and I was in the middle of four seats. If the journey is as important as the destination, then it already failed the minute I was seated in a very intimate setting alongside strangers and seeing the economy class fully booked. The airline defended this by saying they have special economy seats but I complained that this is not equitable since the seats are limited and not everyone could afford an upgrade. Even if they could, the passengers would still be seated side by side and the total number of passengers aboard a tight and enclosed space or load factor is still very high. The airline’s policy was so inconsistent with the very rigid rules of the different government agencies upon disembarkation."

Pros: "The flights were fine. The service good. The airplanes clean."
Cons: "The food was not as good as other Asian airlines. Transferring planes in Manila is a nightmare. They performed an extensive passport check and 2 additional security checks for everyone. Took almost 2 hours. Had to be chaperoned to the next terminal. Manila airport is a disorganized mess. Not the airlines fault but be aware when transferring through Manila"
Pros: "I particularly admire the free media entertainment options and quality of the meals served!"
Cons: "I was seated in the middle of the cabin, where it is rows of four seats, and the way the space under the seats in front of them were divided caused there to only be three separate and staggered places to put carry-on bags. With all four of us in my row needing to put bags under there, it was dicey."
Pros: "The crew is all right helpful."
Cons: "The flight time keep on changing:("
Pros: "Very friendly staff and modern plane."
Cons: "Biz class was so so"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Crew must smile and speak to passengers...poor body language. Waiting for our luggage in the conveyor and give to the guys for them to put a tag for transfer flight to London. If it is connecting flight, passenger should get their luggage in their final airport of destination. Causing delay, because we still have to queve in the immigration. Don't see the point in that."
Cons: "The baggages are very very late."
Cons: "I am Filipino and would really love to support this airline, but I can’t help it; the airline really needs to get it together. This is the second and the last time I’ll be flying with this airline internationally."

Pros: "Some of the crew are really friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Space was very tight. I can’t imagine how the tall people can fit."
Pros: "Clean comfortable plane. Decent leg room. Attentive staff"
Cons: "Manila airport needs upgrades"
Pros: "Flights to Manila and Denpasar were fine."
Cons: "During the long 15hour layover to Bali, lunch and dinner vouchers were provided as long as you stay in the terminal. However, if you decide to leave the terminal, you had to relinquish the vouchers. No access was given to use the Mabuhay lounge and there’s not much options for rest or entertainment at Terminal 2."
Pros: "Broken tv control and head sets x 2 wish I could have used my bose"
Pros: "Why there’s an extra charge if you seat in row 53 below. They put me to row 71."

Pros: "Great crew, smooth flight, good selection of movies (economy)"
Pros: "Like the movies, but had a problem with the iPad provided"
Cons: "I did not like the smaller seats, spaces& the tv iPad . The stewardess were not quick assisting the passengers. They did not make sure the toilet supplies are replenished. The food were not good. I am a frequent flyer, the food they served were all the same."
Cons: "Unorganized for seating, they don’t prioritize family with a baby to seat together. 12:35am flight still delayed!"
Cons: "Add TV"
Pros: "all the services and the staff are all friendly.none"
Cons: "I paid $300 for 2 excess baggages, one of them they left behind in San Francisco, and the other one was mistagged, had a hard time claiming it as it was tagged to someone else. Had to prove them luggage was mine by taking contents out and showing them pictures of me actually wearing or using those that were in the luggage. As for the other missing baggage, who knows. Horrible experience."
Pros: "Nice crew. Delicious food"
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was relatively efficient terms of service on the plane. Flight attendants were courteous and hospitable, despite the fact that the flight was full. It was also a relatively smooth flight."
Cons: "First of all, it took a very long time to check-in, despite the fact that I had done web check-in the night before. I think a lot of people felt the same way. It took also a very long time before we took off. We were told that it was because of the luggage being loaded but it took almost 2 hours before we finally took off. In the plane, there was a man who was obviously intoxicated and was talking in a very loud voice. I think that someone should have spoken to him about his behavior and proper decorum on the plane. Also, the flight didn't have WiFi working on the plane as well (we were told that it wasn't working) and the seat back was broken. I wish that they had told us that ahead of time to manage expectations. I hope that the next flight that I take on Philippine Airlines will be better. I hope that these comments/suggestions will really be taken into consideration so that they can make their service even better because I would really want to use Philippine Airlines again."
Pros: "None. Seat was so uncomfortable and the food was not good at all and the service is very poor. This airline is the poorest service I have ever flown with."
Pros: "I was really amazed with all the staff working for the airline. They were all very nice and helped so much with my handicapped mother before, during, and after our flight. It was already a long flight and very difficult so the staff definitely helped tremendously. The staff were very accommodating all throughout the flight. Very impressive customer service."
Cons: "We didn't have much leg room for the long 14 hour flight. And the paper towels in the bathroom were a bit thin so it was hard to dry your hands after washing."
Pros: "Was able to use the wifi to access the internet for free for 30 minutes of the flight. Can pay $20 to have it through the entire flight but limited to on 150 MBs. Transfer at MNL for domestic flight was flawless."
Cons: "Seat cushion was very hard. No movies were available on the individual screens. I could not get the myPAL app to work with the wifi and use the entertainment options on it. This was on RP-C7775."
Pros: "Flight from SFO to Manila was fine. On time without delay. Once we landed in Manila, our connecting flight was delayed. We were stuck at Manila international airport and not allowed to leave after coming through immigration! 8 hours in a terrible airport with no proper restaurant or bar! Only snack and coffee shops. Would have been nice to know ahead of time so that we could have at least gone into town."
Cons: "8 hour delay Being stuck at airport unable to leave Lack of a sit down restaurant or bar"

Pros: "Left on time, super friendly staff which is rare in my other options (usa carriers), the only non stop flight without layover available to me, faster than before by an hour, food really pretty good for airline food and lots of it. Good entertainment options for no extra charge. Did not get nickel and dimed over crappy movies and a bag of peanuts like USA based airlines love to do. Will use again as usual."
Cons: "Nothing except business class is so damn expensive. I would love to try it someday."
Pros: "Very attentive"
Cons: "If Crews could speak English, Crews not readily available, Hope there are more choices for food, So small portion of drink, Ordor needs to be controlled"
Pros: "The customer service rep from the United at the check-in was awesome."

Pros: "Entertainment was good quality, and had a good variety of games and movies. The food was also pretty good, and provided pretty good headphones."
Cons: "The plane departed 1 hour late, and arrived 1 hour 15 min late, and we barely made our connection on time. The crew gave full cups of drinks to the Chinese passengers, and half full cups to the people of other races. I was sitting in a row of 4 seats, and the person next to me couldn't get anything, so they asked me to get water for them. I asked for water for me, and tried to ask for water for the person next to me, but the crew member just ignored me. I asked her 6 times, and she just wouldn't pay attention to me, so the guy next to me didn't get water."
Cons: "We paid $37 to check in 1 Baggage and the flight from SFO to Beijing had delivered the baggage in baggage claim area. We had to take Chinese Visa to get to the baggage, even-though it is a transit. We missed the next connecting flight to Shenzhen as it ate up all our time. Now have to travel in the mercy of the airlines for next flight. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LIST THAT "VISA NEEDED IF CHECKING IN BAGGAGE" MISSED ALL FLIGHTS"

Cons: "Upgraded and didn’t get the perks of the upgrade"
Pros: "I actually liked the pork noodle dish. It was a little Greeley but just what I wanted"
Cons: "The staff is young, they try hard but they don’t have the grace that more experienced international crews will display. There video display interface was confusing for someone e who doesn’t read chinese simplified characters. I had to ask how to turn on the overhead light."
Cons: "The flight had 02:30 delay due to a technical problem, when we Arrive the luggage was broken."
Pros: "My trip started off with airplane problems from the beginning. From my flight being delayed multiple times by air china to the overly packed united to the confusion of the non updated confirmation numbers or the e-ticket number. Even on the day I left upon arriving to the airport my confirmation number they had just given me after all the prior problems still didn't work. Air china had mediocre food with okay entertainment except my headset jack on the TV was broke and I couldn't watch anything. On the last air china flight from Bejing to Bangkok. I couldn't even charge my phone, watch any entertainment and basically was just stuck with no WiFi. Justfly wouldn't compensate for the changes on their end and said I myself would have to ask the airlines for compensation which the.the airlines directed me no where for compensation or even to upgrade my seat. Now I'm finally in Thailand but I'm scared of my return."
Pros: "Courteous service, clean cabin, reasonable price for business class ticket compared to any other airline."
Pros: "The in-flight meals from SFO to Beijing were good and the flight attendents' service was up to the standard."
Cons: "The transfer at Beijing was awful."
Pros: "I think the food served on the flight has improved significantly over the last few years. I've been flying Air China for the past few years and am very impressed by the progress made by Air China. I will continue to be a loyal customer of this airline. Thanks!"

Pros: "Service was absolutely great, seats were spacey and comfy, entertainment system for every seat had a wide selection. Overall a great flight!"
Cons: "The food was aweful, but it's airplain food, usually it's aweful..."
Pros: "Airfare was cheap"
Cons: "No variety of options for entertainment"
Cons: "Terrible flight. Crew was rude. Food was terrible. Seat back entertainment was broken, and they don't allow any electronics on for any reason."
Cons: "My baby (not yet 1-year) was uncomfortable on the flight and through out. When I asked one crew for help to clean up the floor she just gave me a disgust face and told me I should make the baby throw in the trash bag... I was super shocked and disappointed. I think air china really need to improve their employee training."
Pros: "The service was good. The aircraft was an old aircraft and noisy."
Cons: "Aircraft was old and noisy."
Cons: "Well, the aircraft doesn’t have TV at the back of each seat."
Pros: "Food was good. and more leg room. Also gave you a pillow and blanket. Of course the flight to China was a much larger airplane a Boeing 747, where flight to Sfo was a 737-800 and a smaller Air bus. All my flights made it to destination on time. Or close to it. You should plan on at least 1&1/2 hours between transfers. SFO was under staffed at security long lines, and empty desks. Beijing & Soul airports had smaller lines. The Visa free transit at Beijing worked well."
Cons: "Long time through customs and security especially when transferring from one plane to another. We had carry on luggage but still had to go through baggage claim and exit before transferring to the next flight."
Cons: "The air China flight attendants are some of the rudest people I have encountered. They were extremely unhelpful and one went so far as to sigh and roll her eyes at me. Our flight was also delayed for four hours with no explanation, while we all sat on the plane waiting. Finally they made us all get off of the plane issued us new tickets and then we got back on. The whole process was rediculous. The seat space was smaller than usual and the plane was very dirty. It was also the worst airplane food I have ever tasted. I would definitely recommend not flying air China. K"
Pros: "Courteous & professional. Provided information & snacks while waiting. If they devised a way to provide information & resources about connecting flights to each passenger, they would be at the top of their game."
Cons: "I had to pay to catch my connection with no way to document it, as it was an extreme rush & cash was the only way to get it done on the run. So I doubt I'll see any reimbursement. Airlines, Air China included, should try to provide better accommodations for delayed connecting passengers & not just leave it to airport ground crew or worse, passengers own resources. The only assistance provided was a couple crew directing with flight number signs from the arriving gate. But nothing further than that."
Cons: "I didn't like us taking the bus onto the plane from the tarmac. Luckily it wasn't raining or 10 degrees Fahrenheit like my last experience with air china in Beijing"
Pros: "I liked be provided with a blanket, pillow and entertainment system."
Pros: "Boarding is smooth, organized"
Cons: "Both flights from SFO to Beijing and from Beijing to SGN all are delayed, both at the gate and taxi out, food is very basic nothing fancy about it, same goes with drink, and in fact I don't expect much from them. I hope they will learn and compete with other asian airlines in the region, like Eva Air, or Singapore airlines."
Pros: "Courtesy & willingness of crew to respond effectively"
Cons: "80 minutes delay without explanation."
Pros: "I didn't like it , nothing to tell"
Cons: "12 hours delay at departure, service very bad, overall very shity plane, thats,why ticket so cheap"
Cons: "Food, entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed twice - on my way to an my overnight layover to see a friend in Beijing and then on my way to Tokyo."
Pros: "When the flight delays, as least the crew need to tell the passengers when the flight will be fight or boarding."
Pros: "The food was fine."
Cons: "The flight was two hours delayed, so I almost missed my next one--which was international."
Cons: "More delay from Beijing to Guangzhou."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "Everything very friendly staff and it was a very comfortable flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding was a cluster of people"
Pros: "Food and service was really nice! The entertainment system was outdated"
Pros: "Personal television, blanket available, food better than most plane food"
Cons: "Crew prefer to deal with Chinese speaking people."
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."
Pros: "The plane was well maintained, the bathroom was accessible, and drinking such as water and juice were readily available at the back and could be retrieved at any time."
Cons: "The entertainment options were limited- very few movies of interest or new titles. Although there was a lot of food, it was not very good. The smell made it especially unappealing."
Pros: "Did not expect the individual video for each seat. Nice video selections."
Pros: "Long leg from San Francisco to Beijing (business class) was very smooth with comfortable seats, attentive staff, good food, and plenty of movies to watch. Lounges in both San Francisco and Beijing were great, too."
