Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was helpful and meals are delicious."
Cons: "Give free mask."

Pros: "Always excellent Japanese service."

Cons: "Everything was great."

Pros: "I was surprise that even it was a short 2/3 hour ride there was still food being served. A very nice Japanese breakfast. - smaller plane, bus that picked us up and dropped us off in front of the airport. As we were doing a 12 hour layover, all our check in luggage was taken care of and sent to van"
Cons: "At our first checkin from Korea Ana, seems we have to look at a screen for our luggage just to double check that they made it past customs (never had to do that before) - check in was a bit longer compare to yvr their scanner was much smaller so definitely can’t have big carry on"

Pros: "Service, crew, seats, punctuality"
Cons: "Bad food, cold coffee and tea."

Cons: "Purchased tickets through Kayak on ANA with confirmation. Bumped to United after confirmation. Although I realize both companies are Star Alliance, the bait & switch is unacceptable & I would NOT have purchased these tickets for United. Flight had much more turbulence than my experience on ANA which is why I refuse to fly any other airlines. Will recommend against Kayak to everyone I know."

Pros: "Food and services"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Really polite and attentive. Liked that they offered liquids throughout the flight to keep us hydrated. Good experience overall."

Pros: "Excellent service. Good food. Great entertainment selection."
Cons: "No free WiFi"

Pros: "Food was quite good"
Cons: "the plane was Hot! So hot we couldn't use the blankets. The staff in Tokyo did not want to let me and my twin 11 yr olds board early. We need extra time to be organised and in our seats for a very long flight. If not we block the aisle. And that is without consideration for the fact that my daughter has limited sight so needs my help and it takes time. I was disappointed that they didnt come through the cabin from time to time with snacks as most airlines do on long haul flights."

Pros: "Wish there was more movies in English"

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Was put on "Standby", even though I was traveling with my teenage daughter, and I arrived more than 2 hours before departure! I ended up getting a seat, but this was unnecessary stressful (there were some seats left in business, so they knew I was going to get a seat eventually. They could have told me I was going to be able to go at check-in)."

Pros: "Compared to different american airlines, this flight was great. Decent meals, decent movies, all around good."

Pros: "The crew was accommodating during the flight but spoke very little English and could not help with information on connecting flight."
Cons: "We missed our connecting flight due to a delay and the airline would not let us through because we could have made our second flight...."

Pros: "Great entertainment - The plane offers a ton of blockbuster movies that are recent and from many catagories. They also offer TV from different lands and video games and selection of languages to hear them in. Great food - Even economy passengers get great free food during the trip. For a trip as long as going from Washington DC to BeiJing, they give you two dinners. Roominess - The seats are as cramped as any airline. However, the flight attendants don't give you are trouble when you want to get up and walk around and stay standing and talking with people of a long time. It has two isles so it feels pretty roomy to get up and walk around. Friendly staff- They make american flight staffs look very rude."

Cons: "Constant and substantial changes to their schedule, Ticketing gave me wrong seat, Flight attendant argued about seating for a Long time and then gave me the seat that I requested. Food was absolutely terrible ! Beijing airport was very dirty and disorganized Will not fly with them again – too many problems."

Pros: "I like it most that we don’t need to get the luggage out in Beijing or get the boarding pass again in Beijing. It’s very convenient."
Cons: "There was a delay of the connection flight and for half an hour, we were told flight time is TBD. I’d expect at least an estimate of the new boarding time."

Cons: "The flight was way too long but there's nothing they could do about that lol"

Pros: "Fare was low."
Cons: "They delayed the flight almost two hours to wait for other people to make the connection. We had stickers put on our shoulders to indicate that we were in a short time window, but it seems that those were badges for us to be taken advantage of by hawkers with mobile carts to pick us up outside security, take us to our gate and then demand cash."

Pros: "Food"

Pros: "Food, blanket, movies on board"
Cons: "The layover was too short and I had to run to my transfer. I wish crew would have let people with short layovers off first"

Cons: "It took 30 minutes to take a bus from where we were parked to the terminal another 40 minutes to get through security when we finally made it to the next gate to connecting flight they had closed the gate. After all the work to get a temporary visa so we could get our bags and check back in our next flight was with Philippine airlines"

Cons: "Food was bland. Very limited flight entertainment selection. Flight attendants are extremely rude."

Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "The plane crew was not pleasant. The food was not fresh nor was there enough of it. The staff for Air China at the gate were rude and I was racially profiled and forced to go through a search in which my waist was wiped down, my shoes and wrists. My bags were emptied and this was as I was walking to board the actual plane."

Cons: "The food and drinks are limited from all flights. Due to the limitation on the carry-on luggage, I had to place my camera batteries and other stuffs to the check-in luggage at the check in counter in Washington DC. The Chinese custom in Beijing took them all. They are normally just take the battery charger, but not the camera batteries. These are expensive items and not conviniece at all to customer."

Cons: "since this portion of my flight was cancelled by air china they tried to book me on the next day but my husband decided to come meet me in beijing after getting me a hotel and driver to pick me up the night that i was stranded. i told air china not to book me on the flight the following morning that i wasn't going to take it. they never did that and ended up cancelling the entire remaining flights on air china. this was the worst experience with an airline i've ever experienced."

Pros: "Loved the wide seats and space between seats. Staff service was impeccable."
Cons: "My TV screen was not functioning well."

Pros: "Airline staff"
Cons: "Delayed flights (2 legs, 4 hours) and mishandled luggage"

Pros: "I liked the selection of movies."
Cons: "I didn't like that the staff didn't know English that well, they only had Pepsi,spirt,oj, apple juice. No cranberry juices, no ginger ale, no liquor. I didn't like the staff touching me.You can use your words to politely get peoples attention. I didn't like that our flight was 3 hours late in Beijing and no one had an answer of why or how long. The only information was for us to get another flight in the morning or to just wait for 10hours or a few days. What kind of customer service is that! Food was terrible!!!!!!"

Cons: "Flight was canceled. Customer service was incredibly unprofessional."

Cons: "Poor customer service and flight delays"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Cancelled a week before flight. No one pickup phone to rebooking."

Pros: "The on boarding process was quick and efficient at Songyuan airport. Very clean airport, and pleasant staff. Plane had decent legroom in the economy seating. Food was decent for short flight airplane food."
Cons: "Airline crew never gave any status updates about why the flight was not getting ready for takeoff after everyone was seated and the planes doors closed. Sat there waiting for +30 minutes with no updates. Flight crew never gave immigration cards. Deplaning was a nightmare because we had to deplane in several groups because it was raining and the Hongqiao airport would not let us deplane through a jetway."

Pros: "The flight was pretty good and courteous. And boarding was pretty average."
Cons: "I hate the fact that I can't use my phone for entertainment even when it's on airplane mode. I have the wifi off and airplane mode on and I still can't use it."

Pros: "It was on time and relatively cheap. Grateful for nonstop itinerary. Love the interactive map available to see flight over the pole."
Cons: "Food poor. Breakfast was same as dinner...rice and not good tasting chicken in a gravy. No other snacks or meals in a 14 hour flight. I departed hungry. Very few movie selections for Westerners. Cold air in cabin made me pull my blanket over my head to stay warm, despite wearing a jacket."

Pros: "All our luggage was at the end with us, nothing missing"
Cons: "The weather delay was not fault of the airline."
