After trying online and tried calling China southern. I finally got someone that speaks Thai to do it for me and reserve a window seat. I tried calling and pressing 3 for English and no one ever picked up. Very disappointed"
Pros: "The flight from Los Angeles to Guangzhou was good and food was fine."
Cons: "Food served on Guangzhou-Dhaka sector was not good."
Pros: "The flight-staff was super co-operative when I told that I didn't select the vegan / veg food option in advance. They tried to to do their best to ensure that I still get some veg food to eat. In general also, I found that the flight-staff was the best."
Cons: "I am not sure how it happened, but I never got a chance to select meal when I did the booking. Probably because the booking was from third-party site but then again, when one clicks on "Book", the third-party site directs to airline site only."
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent !"
Cons: "I had to return early because of a Crisis in the Family. the amount charged to change the ticket date as Highway Robbery. no consideration what so ever !"

Cons: "Online check in process needs to be clearer"
Pros: "Nothing". I really mean it Nothing."
Cons: "I was flying to Delhi & it was an emergency situation for me bcz i lost my Dad & i was flying to perform the cremation of my Dad. And thing this was informed to the China Southern officials so that they could arrange something for me. I requested them to put me into another flight for which i was ready to pay the whole amount but no one listen to my request & i had to wait so long. I was amazed to see that no one was keen to understand my problem at both he airports i.e. Auckland Airport & Ganzhaou Airport. Apart from this the behavior of your officials was so rude & arrogant it made me feel as if i was a slave or some kind of culprit. Due to the ignorance & laid back attitude on your part i couldn't reach my destination on my time. Seriously it took me "24 hrs Extra" to reach my destination & as a result of which i couldn't perform the cremation. I was pissed off by the service; complete ignorance by the staff/officials of ur airlines. I wasn't expecting this kind of treatment from a reputed company like you. I request you guys to look into this matter seriously and try to take some corrective measures so that this thing won't happen in future with someone else."
Cons: "2 hour delay caused issues with connecting flights and baggage didn’t make it with me to final destination. Seats were small and the window seat was so far from the window that you could not lean against it"
Cons: "Nonfunctional survey"
Pros: "Was ok overall."
Cons: "Harbin airport is not efficient. Gate goes out to the cold. The airline is fine, the international terminal isn't .no entertaiment and they wouldn't let you use any eletronic device."
Cons: "They left one of my bags in China. I need it"
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online.When I mentioned this at the ticket counter the agent responded that they kept hearing that from passageners. Apparently this wasn't enough of an issue to make any changes. The plane was uncomfortable for such a long flight. Lots of movie choices, but few current choices. Flight attendants weren't that friendly."
Pros: "Friendliness of staff."
Cons: "Tired and outdated business class seats. Use of buses to take passengers to aircraft."
Cons: "Later flight and delayed in China, stay in wuhan for 24 hours No smith transfer to next flight"
Pros: "Ontime departure, guest pack with toiletries, eye mask and ear plugs along with a blanket and pillow for each seat. Roomy seats with a massive variety of entertainment options for the long flight. We encountered a significant amount of turbulence and the staff were kind, accommodating and not too restrictive with the seat belt sign."
Pros: "They feed us so much food! Amazing service!!!!"
Cons: "I liked it all!!"
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: "The China Southern business class lounge is excellent. It has plenty of seats with good space. It serves excellent breakfast. Services of the business class servant are outstanding."
Cons: "The new Terminal 3 in Chongqing airport has a lot of space. But walking from the airplane deplane location to the luggage site is more than 700 meters. It is too far to walk in particular for people who can not walk well."
Pros: "I liked that it was an almost empty flight. Food was average."
Cons: "Pilot couldn't land so made a different airport landing and waited two hours to let weather clear up. So a 14 hour flight was 17 hours long. Missed connecting flight so was loaded onto another flight. After onboard had to wait another hour before we could take off. Arrived at hotel after check in time had to sleep outside of hotel till they opens next morning. Horrible trip!"
Pros: "No problems is a good thing."
Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed so I had to run to my next flight...not good"

Pros: "Non stop Flight to Guangzhou,Timing of the is good you can start your work earlier."
Cons: "only they serve is chines food , They should have 2 options. they dint have any new movies"
Pros: "Being able to move to the exit rows before the flight began to have lots of extra leg room and an open seat between us."
Pros: "If you have a carry on bag only, then this airline is fine. If you have to check your bag, I would suggest not even considering it. I have flown this airline for the last 8 years in business travel, with no issues. For some reason in the last two years, the level of efficiency in baggage transporting has tanked. In the last 3 trips, my-or my colleague's bags have been lost FIVE TIMES. One time it took FOUR days (on a 6 day trip) to get our luggage, this time we received our luggage 2 hours before departing for the airport to head home. Unfortunately this is one of the few airlines that actually flies the route we need to take. I'll revise my entire trip to avoid taking this airline in the future."
Pros: "Great service on the plane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours."
Cons: "Flight was 40 minutes late... and the seats are very hard!"
Pros: "1. The check-in was very good, and very helpful!!!!...***** (5 stars service). 2. Flight crew was very professional."
Cons: "1. No information or explanation in English about the flight delay. 2. I have a very expensive new metal "19 degree Tumi all Aluminum suite case. It arrives damaged with a whole punched through the side wall. Cost me USD $1,395. Total disrespect for my property entrusted to China southern airlines. You inform me in Hong Kong maximum reimbursement is approximately USD 50.00 ! How would you feel about that? You tell me! 3. Approximately a 4 hour flight delay. I am not sure it was really necessary. How would you feel about that? You tell me! 4. Took a long time to get off the plane. I was in the front... No bus I think I appreciate the plastic rain coat. However The buss was leaking inside worse than the rain outside, and all over me. I left the bus with very wet trousers. How would you feel about that? You tell me! 5. So many problems because of a little rain...Really? You cant deal with a little rain better than this?"
Pros: "Some crew member was nice and that's the only nice thing I can say"
Cons: "Some crew member ignored my request or forgot and in eco plus seating there wasn't any crew member there to accept service request light. Food wasn't good at all. Luckily we ate before boarding."
Cons: "Music only to listen to, but headphones only worked on one side. Middle seat (B) didn't recline."
Pros: "I have flown a lot of Chinese airlines because I live in Beijing, and they are the best! I had a 9-hour layover and expected to sleep in the airport overnight. However, they provided a free hotel! I really appreciated it and they did it without asking. Also they spoke English and were very polite and nice. In my opinion, Chinese airlines are usually terrible and the staff usually has terrible English, but China Southern was amazing!"
Pros: "Meals were served. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Lacking internet connection, current movies and palatable food, the 5 and 15 hour flights were brutal as a passenger."
Pros: "Cheap and budget friendly option."
Cons: "No entertainment at all. No individual screens for our flights lasting up to 4 hours at all. We took 4 legs of flights lasting 4 hours each time. Only in 2 of the instances was there a tiny communal screen for sad looking c-list hollywood movie running on repeat."
Pros: "The leg room compared to economy seats on other airlines is noticeably roomier. Abundant pillows and blankets. Entertainment was good."
Cons: "But I speak for my neighbor, whose touch screen would not respond to touch, either finger or frustrated forehead smack. Fifteen hours is too long to go without some access to distracting material. Granted there was a language barrier between us, but he shared his first language with the flight crew. His seat was 43J on flight CZ 399 from Guangzhou to JFK departing November 24, 2016 at 1:50 AM. Get on it!"
Pros: "Was prepared for the worst and was actually a good airline."
Pros: "The staff in Manila were mostly accomodating and nice. The flight was not full which makes it more comfortable"
Cons: "The attendants were ok. Food was below average. The juice tasted fake. We missed our connection and were advised by the staff never to take that because it is ALWAYS delayed"
