Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "flights very comfortable"
Cons: "Cabin crew doesn’t speak much English. Food isn’t great but what airplane food is?"
Cons: "It’s a very long flight and I had the unfortunate luck of getting a broken entertainment unit."
Pros: "The plane is quite comfortable and took off on time."
Cons: "The food and the crew members. Provide more options of foods and serve water/juice more often. The crews need more training for customer service/ polite communication."
Pros: "When we landed Guangzhou, the polit’s landing was amazing."
Cons: "The food was horrible this time. Only had two meals, some had three meals. They are suppose to feed you before you land, but only some had three meals. Maybe it’s time to consider free WiFi. It’s such a long flight."
Pros: "Service Food"
Pros: "Pretty much everything."
Cons: "The food could be better."
Cons: "Online checkin didnt work, long disorganized lines, delayed flight, bag lost"
Pros: "Seat space"
Cons: "Flight was 1 1/2 hours late and China Southern had shortened the connection time in Guanzough, China to Kuala Lumpur. In spite of me asking the crew to contact China Southern in Guanzough, no assistance was given. 'Service' by China Southern in Guanzough was NON-EXISTENT! We missed our flight to Kual Lumpur --where we had a driver waiting, a hotel for 2 nights, and a tour the next day. We lost ALL of those and did not arrive in Kuala Lumpur until 2PM the next day. Timing was CRITICAL that we be in Kuala Lumpur the night before per the schedule. China Southern served no beer or liquor on their international flight --only cheap wine in the smallest plastic glasses I have ever seen."
Pros: "The efficiency and professionalism of the crew were appreciated.Business class seats were comfortable but lack of wi-if disappointing."
Pros: "Excellent hospitality.Well managed & excellent customer service."
Cons: "Overall great service.I do not have any cons."
Pros: "Food was mainly excellent, except one time the bread, and a piece of meat in the cold salad, were a little stale. Entertainment was mainly excellent, except the game choices were limited and the movies were edited."
Cons: "1. Uncomfortable boarding at JFK: Had to go out in the cold to ride a BUS to the airplane: Why can't they use a BRIDGE like everyone else? Since our first leg was from, and our lest leg was to, very warm places, we were not prepared for the sub-freezing conditions. 2. Horrible flight delay: JFK to CAN: Cancellation of flight CZ600, 12/31/17, followed by TEN-hour delay leaving JFK, was beyond traumatic. Airplane had to be fixed, but it should not have taken that long to find a solution. Passenger care was horrible: Initially we sat on the tarmac for 4 hours, then transferred to a waiting station with almost no heat and no access to rest rooms or food."
Pros: "Flight left on time, seats with plenty of room, friendly on flight staff"
Cons: "In-seat entertainment screen kept freezing up and had to be restarted several times"
Pros: "The entertainment was good, food was great, crew was friendly, and the travelers were actually really awesome, quiet, disciplined. Loved the flight."
Cons: "I had booked the free hotel for when you have more than 8 hours on the layover. I got to the airport to find that because I didn’t have a US passport, I couldn’t take advantage of the hotel, although my wife who is American, could have chosen to. So we stayed for 9 hours in the airport, and then boarded another 10 hour flight to NZ. It would have been useful to know the limitations, and maybe even get some kind of voucher for food or a lounge from the airline since they could have told me about the passport restrictions."
Pros: "Pretty spacious, seats were comfortable enough, good entertainment"
Cons: "Couldn't check in online and consequently select a sea - it was very stressful"
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: "Cabin crew is helpful, & I noted they are especially attentive to their elderly passengers & those needing assistance."
Cons: "The food is absolutely disgusting. And this from a national airline of a country renowned for one of the world's finest cuisines. It's an awfully long flight & little to eat. Even the packaged peanuts were poor. Also, deplaning at Guangdong requires use of portable stairs & bus to terminal - they don't use the jetways! This is a pain in the butt - and knees for those with any mobility issues."
Pros: "No comment"
Cons: "I was sitting on the window seat from Guangzhou to JFK, the person sit next to me( middle seat ) was a handicapped person, she couldn't stand n was pushed in by wheelchair , I don't understand why was she put in the middle seat, I have to climb over her everytime I wanted to go out, what if there is an emergency, it would be difficult to evacuate her, she travel with another three person, middle seat was just not right for her, the crew on board should have disallowed her to sit in the midfle"
Cons: "The flight CZ3517 was delayed by more than 2 hours."
Pros: "I like the comfort seat from New York to Guangzhou on Being 777 even though it was a long flight of almost 15 hours."
Cons: "The white wine served on the CZ600 flight between New York and Guangzhou was not chilled. The flight crews should be trained that white wine needs to be served chilled. The Delta Club at JFK closed before midnight. However the outbound flight from JFK did not leave until 1:40 am. There should be notice where the business class customers should go to get lounge services."
Cons: "Could not reserve a seat ahead of time and the website was impossible. But once on the flight, all was good. But I agree with others that the seats are very hard. This was business class and a 15 hour flight."
Cons: "I missed my flight due to certain inevitable reason and kayak or China southern both didn't wanna help me in such case."
Pros: "No frills, great price, tiny seats for skinny people that goes with price. Food was actually great, nyc to GZ route, gz to nyc food not so good. Great planes. Good sexy non usa international movies. The price is right and the cool thing about most Chinese airlines is they don't charge so much if any for return date changes as long as their is room"
Cons: "tall people behind me knocking my seat cause they are crammed into their tiny small short seat."
Pros: "Penty if room.plenty of staff on board"
Pros: "Cabin service was polite and friendly (one attendant especially helpful)."
Cons: "Food (New York origin?) was not interesting. Do not care for plastic fork and spoon."
Pros: "The services was excellent. Everyone was polite. Overall was very good experience."
Pros: "We got moved up to Business Class on the 15 hour flight from JFK to Guangzhou. That was awesome. China Southern put us up in a very nice hotel because we had a 10 hour layover in Guangzhou, food included. Aircraft was new. Very impressed."
Cons: "Had to declare onto the tarmac and get a shuttle to the airport when landings in Guangzhou. Not enjoyable. Could be very stressful with a short connection time."
Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful. It was almost empty so I had an entire row to myself and I could stretch out and sleep."
Cons: "The 16 hour delay was horrendous. China Southern knew this flight was going to be delayed more than 12 hours before the scheduled departure. Yet, they did nothing to prepare for it. They began looking for hotel rooms after the departure time had passed. I was in the last batch taken to a hotel where I had a choice of sleeping on the tile conference room floor or sharing a room with a stranger. At least I got my own bed. Others had to share a bed with a stranger. There was no prior thought given to prepare for the situation, no meal vouchers offered, and the level of rudeness displayed by the airline staff was beyond comprehension. Delays happen. They are part of modern air travel. But, in many years of international travel, I have never before seen a delay mismanaged so completely.. Then to top it off, bags were left in NY."
Pros: "I was in business class. The lie-flat seat was pretty good with lots of space for storing my things. The crew was efficient but not particularly friendly. The bathroom was kept very very clean."
Cons: "The food was mediocre to poor. They forced me to turn off my computer one hour prior to landing."
Cons: "bad China eastern company on return trip from Shanghai"
Pros: "Seating was good and comfortable"
Cons: "They should at least have English speaking flight attendants even one or 2 .. no liquor service on a 16 hour flight"
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "The food was lame"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, great food, nice collection of movies. The flight attendant was very pleasant and accommodating . Great airlines."
Pros: "The ground staff were also very helpful."
Pros: "The boarding was on time and organized.the crew was friendly and helpful. My seats were comfortable even though they were ecomomy class. The food was delicious and more than I expected. Finally, the movie selections were current and interesting. Honestly did not have a negative moment."
Pros: "They had provide us the hotel for us to stay overnight due to flight delay or boarding pass issue."
Cons: "The flight was so freezing that I (and all around me) had to wear their winter coats during the flight. My TV did not work and each meal I was served was not what I asked for. I also had to ask repeatedly for water before receiving it. A nice flight attendant lent me her iPad so that I could have some entertainment during the flight. Will avoid China Southern airlines in the future."
Pros: "The crew was GREAT! Helpful and nice!"
Cons: "If there was a way to request seats I couldn't find it... I was stuck by a window and unable to get up as much as I would like."
Cons: "trip management thru airfare.com and china southern was terrible. I will not be using either service again. I wasn't able to manage my flight on the china southern website of choose a seat. they lost my bag. it was a timely flight confirmation process. I will not use airfare or china southern again."
Pros: "Crew ware kindness with smile"
Cons: "There was like market at gate Therefore no priority boarding"
Pros: "comfortable seat, boarding procedure"
Cons: "Even airplane mode turned on, passenger is not allowed to use mobile."
Cons: "I did not have a complete ticket until approximately 24-hours before departure and only after I called Airfare.com literally for weeks, and then finally told them I wanted to cancel. Then all legs of the trip were suddenly booked, but seats were not confirmed. I was charged a $450 cancellation fee despite the fact that they did not do their job because I was unable to trust anything they were doing, and subsequently booked my flight direct through Delta. Please keep in mind I purchased the ticket on July 3, 2016 and Airfare.com was unable to provide me a complete ticket until the night of August 16, 2016 with a August 17, 2016 departure date to China! I can honestly say this was the worst travel booking experience I've ever had."
Pros: "Was prepared for the worst and was actually a good airline."
Cons: "English announcement can be improved"
Pros: "It was a really smooth flight and comfortable. the flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "The food isn't so great, but that's not that uncommon. I was asked to close my shade several times from the very beginning of the flight except that I was wide awake and had deliberately asked for a window seat so I could look out. 15 hours is too long to fly in a darkened environment and especially when boarding in the morning after a nights' sleep. Perhaps handing out eye masks for folks who want darkness is a way to respect the needs of all passengers."
Pros: "Great movies!"
Pros: "My upgraded seat although had to pay for it, otherwise I was going to sit in the middle row in a section with about 50 small children."
Cons: "I had an 8 hour layover at JFK and the China southern counter didn't open until three hours before the flight took off. So I had to sit outside of the terminal waiting for them to open. Couldn't even get to s lounge as I had no boarding pass. (I tried several times to call earlier in the week and the phone system at China southern is terrible - was on hold for a long time every time then the operators were not helpful at all). I waited in the check in line for an hour and a half. Several times I witnessed people going in the business class line and they clearly were not in business class but they allowed them to just jump the line anyway. (I realized this once I was finally able to ask for an upgrade - not until I got to the gate counter because the guy who checked me in didn't understand my request, poor English - and once on the plane there were very few people in business class and I know those people who had jumped the line were not among them ). Very disappointed with the whole process."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants, attentive to passengers' needs. Good entertainment system. Free limited wifi. Good cabin atmosphere."
Cons: "Free snack package was too small. Either you give or you don't."
