Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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."
Cons: "kayak charge me for seat assiment and kosher food and millage number Nom of those was in and i had to travel with out food and fight to get seats and make sure the millage number is in"
Cons: "Traffic on the take off strip made us sit in our seats for a long time, about an hour and I had my infant on my lap who had peed through his pants but I wasn’t allowed to go to the lavatory and change his diaper or clothes! Not just this but I also had a very important meeting to attend in Seoul for business and the flight delay made me late! Unacceptable"
Pros: "What a bad experience People who are more then 60 y old and on wheel chair can’t speak English well crew and team should take charge and handle the situation."
Cons: "Quit difficult to travel on air China it was first experience At least they should nice care and show genuine hospitality and respect."
Cons: "The cabin crew"
Pros: "My flight was delayed and we couldn’t get our connecting flight. They managed to send us with a direct flight the same day."
Cons: "Air China has a poor online update for the flight status."
Cons: "Luggage lost. Reported at the HK airport. The airport staff told me that no record of my luggage and filed a report for me."
Cons: "Narrow seats"
Pros: "The crew was very professional"
Cons: "My Tv couldn’t work"
Cons: "I can not do the check in on line because I did not have a chinese mobil phone."
Pros: "It was my 1st family trip to Korea from LA, USA. I was worried before trip because I have just turned 1 year baby. But the crew were so nice to us especially my baby they give us the best service to us ever. Food was great and they fed baby food too! even I didn't ordered(I didn't know that i had to pre-order.). Our seats were comfy and there was some space for my husband's legs; he is pretty tall. anyways so thankful trip for our family!"
Pros: "The flight crew’s polite attitude was the only redeeming quality."
Cons: "They kept telling us before the inflight meal that there may not be enough food. And “sorry”. Luckily there was enough for my partner and I, but it was unsettling. Most importantly we found our luggage ransacked when we arrived at our destination. There were zip ties wrapped around both our suitcases that were cutting into the fabric. When we opened our luggage we found numerous items missing and broken. We will be filling a complaint with the airline as well as a claim with travel insurance. Finally, I will do my best to avoid connecting through Beijing airport. Most restaurants didn’t start serving food until 11:30am and our next flight boarded at that time. We arrived at 6am and we were starving. So our only real option was soup."
Pros: "Food, especially the hot entrees and the salmon salad and the matcha cake"
Cons: "I repeatedly asked for upgrade options, was told 1) Gimpo airport can't process upgrades 2) wait until cabin door closed 3) flight is too full, no seats available when I could see an entire business class section empty. Was charged $110 to check an extra bag. Only one bag of three received upon landing. Airline staff was completely unapologetic and disingenuous, saying my bags would arrive on the next flight at 11 (there was no flight arriving at 11) and then treating me like I was inconveniencing them by needing to leave the airport two hours after my flight landed instead of continuing to wait indefinitely for my bags."
Cons: "Bad food choice"
Pros: "I disliked their judgement decision because I have entered India in the past by land and was eligible for a tourist visa with a proper USA passport..The judgement of the staff at the airport was related to ,You do not have a visa now you can not got on the plane.I explained as a tourist I can get one when I arrive at customs India as a tourist entering Indian .The staff had a meeting taking an hour or more and the flight time was approaching I begin to worry, they continued to stone wall me and then stated you cannot get on the plane and the airline will not refund your ticket price.you are at fault no visa a visa is required to get on the plane .I was sad I had to sleep at the airport got a hostel iin a m"
Pros: "Everything was surprisingly decent."
Cons: "Seats we’re lacking appropriate padding."
Pros: "Honestly nothing."
Cons: "I asked a crew for analgesic and they can't even understand my simple English. And there's time a will ask for water lucky enough if they remember mostly they forget it. The worst part is the food. I dont know if they have a poor choice of food to serve or they just really serve cheap food. Nothing good honestly speaking."
Pros: "There was free water"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, poor communication, almost a riot at the boarding gate when flight became delayed with no explanation"
Pros: "Blankets and a pillow were provided"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Agent was VERY helpful and helped me to change my seat so that I could have an aisle. She also made sure I had the aisle seat on my connecting flight"
Cons: "Breakfast was not good unfortunately"
Cons: "The flight attendants are super disrespectful. They treat you like if you’re in a concentration camp. Besides the planes are very uncomfortable, the food wasn’t good at all either. They give you choices and then they say they ran out and you have to eat whatever they give you. At the end you end up eating a different meat with he same sauce. They canceled the global map view right after we took off and it was actuallly the only good thing about their entertainment screen because it looks like they were made when touch screens first came out."
Pros: "Nice clean plane"
Cons: "Very bad food boiled vegetable and meat with no taste at all. Most entertainment movies, music and video in Chinese language."
Cons: "My bags were lost!"
Pros: "There were personal movie screens with movies I liked."
Cons: "The food was pretty bad. The bottom seat cushion was quite hard so I couldn't sleep because I was shifting my weight every hour. We were told at the boarding gate that the flight was full when we asked about upgrades, but the economy plus section was almost empty once we were on. I don't understand the reasoning for lying about the flight being full. If you won't sell us an upgrade, just say so."
Pros: "Crew is well trained"
Cons: "Beijing airport upon arrival : taxying took long time! Very borny"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Airport in lounge was a waste of time, no wifi, terrible coffee, no showers."
Cons: "Wasn't on the flight"
Pros: "The service and comfort were Ok. Breakfast was poor."
Cons: "MY LUGGAGE WAS LOST. SENT TO CAMBODIA INSTEAD OF NAGOYA! ARRIVED 5 DAYS LATER AD WAS SERIOUSLY DAMAGED. NOW I AM PREPARING A COMPLAINT."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "But slow to take off"
Pros: "Just fine."
Pros: "Dude at counter who had to change our seats as we were flying with an infant was great. Other people who were assisting us didn't know how to fix the issue but he did. Then when we boarded, he made sure we went first as we had all that baby stuff you have to carry!"
Cons: "I have flown Air China 6 times and every time we leave late. One time it caused me to miss a connecting flight and I was stuck in LA for two days. Food is not good. Buy snacks before you board. Movies/entertainment is poor. Nothing to watch for 15 hours."
Pros: "Smiles of flight attendants and services"
Cons: "Flight delayed, limits of food choices"
Pros: "Crew were quite accommodating. Because our flight was delayed by 2 hours,crew let us off the air plane as soon as possible so that we could catch our connecting flight."

Cons: "Missed my flight because I pushed the wrong date."
Cons: "No luggage for , 5h delay and a cancellation. Customer service awful"
Cons: "The flight to Bangkok was delayed 8 hours with no information for most of that time. The flight back was delayed 2 hours. My bags were lost on the flight back. The food is horrible and the service terrible. The audio quality for entertainment was awful. Stay far away from this airline."
Cons: "Need more vegetarian dishes available"
Pros: "A comfortable flight, with one of the best flight attendants I've known (he spoke excellent English but was also really helpful and engaged in a completely authentic way). Great food too."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment was a bit limited, and boarding was delayed."
Cons: "Bad and poor costumer service. Never again even if they were the cheapest or even if it's free."
Cons: "Delay with fake reasons"
Pros: "Look forward to my return trip"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, helpful"
Cons: "Plane feels old. You get what you pay for, it was by far the cheapest airfare... but included my luggage getting lost after a layover."
Cons: "The 12 hour non stop flight from Los Angeles to Beijing was on 747-400 aircraft with no personal entertainment on the seat backs. they had a monitor that played chinese movies which was hard to see and it was a very boring flight. Kids were complaining 2 hours into the flight saying they were bored as nothing to do. Food was mediocre. I can't imagine an international flight with no personal entertainment screens."
Cons: "Everything are so bad. My luggages were damages. I will never go on Air China again."
Pros: "Smooth flight, good crew. Food was ok. Movie selection not great in English but what do you expect on China airline."
