Airline reviews

Pros: "Air China Staff in Malpensa Milan are amazing. Friendly and helpful. Can’t emphasise this enough"

Cons: "Couldn't reach airline by phone to change my flight. After several attempts and an hour on hold they disconnected. Website won't help. Air China isn't a reliable airline."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lost our bags twice and 19 hr flight became 31 hours to get to our destination. Now return flight is already delayed 1 1/2 hours"

Pros: "The crew is excellent, specially their head of hostes Flying is good Star alience Golden card is very good in every thing and they respect it here. Well done"
Cons: "30 mintes delaying in departure Food should be better and should have the sign of Halal/Muslim food Entertainment should be more exciting"

Cons: "Food was subpar. The entertainment devices did not work."

Pros: "Was fine for a short flight. "Western breakfast" was decent - 2 little pancakes, some scrambled eggs, and a (chicken?) sausage. Staff were kind enough to let us move to the front of the plane and get off first as we had only an hour to get to our connecting flight in Beijing."

Pros: "Very fast getting luggage to us after the flight!"

Pros: "It was quick flight and staffs was very nice"
Cons: "Staffs didnt know much english.."

Pros: "Food was okay"

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: "Level of Service"

Cons: "You name it, I've flown it, but Air China takes the cake for all-around worst experience on a plane. For starters, the idea of customer service hasn't made it's way to Air China. The staff were cold, at best, and rude, at worst. The food is one step below prison food. In my opinion, it was inedible. Every Air China flight I took (and I took 4) were the most turbulent I've ever taken, almost as if the pilot was purposefully trying to rattle us. Finally, one of the most annoying things about Air China is not being able to check in via app. Their tech is from 1987, so you have to go to their airport counter and endure long lines. I will NEVER fly with them again."

Pros: "Not near as bad as the reviews I've read. Service was good and seats comfortable."
Cons: "food isn't great (but is it good on any other economy flight), nor is drink service (they really limit when you can order wine). Poor entertainment."

Pros: "Scored an awesome seat with no one next to me in a small cabin between first and coach class."
Cons: "Even after I had carefully check luggage restrictions I got thoroughly hassled about my ski bag and had to pay considerably extra and do major persuading. The fact the air china desk doesn't open till within 3 hours of flight time at Tom Bradley international terminal at lax is madness. All these red eye flights going through security at once was one of my worst flight experiences. I the picture I took of it is an awesome representation of the term madness"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Good experience and in time. Clean."
Cons: "Passengers ahead talking too much."

Pros: "The boarding was smooth."
Cons: "I only have one hour connecting time in Beijing and this lag of flight was delayed by 40 minutes. I only have 20 minutes to go through international transfer and another security check point. By the time I came out from security check point, my plane is already at Final call. The gate is a distant away from the security check point area. I ran so hard to get into the plane the very last minutes."

Pros: "Goof food and service"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 95 minutes, which screw up my schedule badly.."

Cons: "Flight arrived on time...they wouldn’t let me on the plane...said the other plane already took off and I had to stay overnight in china...friend/famliy waiting at airpor"

Pros: "The flight waited which I'm sure is a complaint by others. This is due to the very inefficient transfer process in Beijing."
Cons: "Zero entertainment. I know it's only a 4-5 hour flight but still."

Pros: "Crew and flight were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Passengers from Beijing were rude, and consistently snorting and spitting throughout the entire flight. Not just one person but everyone around us. Very disgusting and nauseating listening to that for 6+hours. I had earbuds in the entire flight and could still hear the spitting..."

Pros: "I have a walking disability Air China disrupted so many passengers to meet my needs and I was amazed at how friendly all the crew where and actually cared about me. Food was awesome"
Cons: "Never could figure out the Wi-Fi I thought we had on flight."

Pros: "Crew is well trained"
Cons: "Beijing airport upon arrival : taxying took long time! Very borny"

Pros: "it was a very comfortable flight and the crew was friendly and helpful. We were traveling with two small children, so saying it was a comfortable flight is very high praise."
Cons: "It was VERY annoying that we had to keep all cell phones turned off the entire flight. We preloaded games for my 5 year old son on an old iPhone 4 that is not connected to the internet or any cell service or bluetooth or anything and he was not allowed to use it the entire flight. Very frustrating for him and us. I wish this information was clearly provided on the Air China website when we booked the tickets so we could have planned accordingly."

Pros: "Hostesses are well trained ans hospitable . Landing was very smooth"
Cons: "Taxing upon leaving Beijing took long time ! Delayed the departure !"

Pros: "No hassle check in and boarding."
Cons: "Meals were average. Rice meals are better than the noodles. IFE selection for US passengers could be better. No cell allowed after take off."

Pros: "No hassle check in and boarding."
Cons: "Meals were average. Rice meals are better than the noodles. IFE selection for US passengers could be better. No cell allowed after take off."

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The Food, Staff, and overall attitude of everyone we felt with. Layover in china was a nightmare worst bathrooms I have seen since India!!"

Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "No AC in my section for a 13 hour trip. Was so uncomfortable. Dated entertainment and slow crew service."

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Flight delayed over 40 hours, in China! Nothing anyone can do about it. Totally got screwed by Air Gina. Almost missed the wedding I was officiating. Worse part is that Kayak has no customer service number to call for help. Never again. If that wasn't enough, they lost a bag on my return flight. Pay the extra money and get treated like a human being."

Cons: "Held my bag for two days, No explanation, apparently just wanted to rummage through it. Stranded in Mongolia with no clean clothes or medication."

Pros: "Not much. Size of seat and legroom same as other economy class so although cramped it was acceptable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but no announcements and no change to boarding information posted at gate. Food was inedible and also not enough for the long flight. The major food groups served were white bread, white rice, and more white bread. With some extremely salty and corn starchy food in small amounts to go with. Entertainment system had touch screen that was very difficult to use, 90 percent Chinese movies, and headphone was very unsatisfactory."

Pros: "We were finally able to get home but..."
Cons: "we are still trying to contact someone in Beijing to help us get our security check items back and no one from China Air staff is helping to ship our items back to us."

Pros: "Space in business class"
Cons: "Cabin appointment not impressive."

Pros: "Seats in front of plane"
Cons: "1 hour delayed due late plane arrival"

Cons: "So many delays without a notification."

Pros: "Everything seems to go smoothly, the flight was good and we landed on time."

Pros: "Seats were large and crew was nice"

Cons: "Terrible ticket change process"

Pros: "The plane was more spacious than many flights I was on during my vacation."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because the plane was late to the airport and I nearly missed a connection."

Pros: "Selection of movies"
Cons: "Small seats"

Pros: "This time Air China were pretty on time for both all the trips I took, in contrast to its constant delay in the past."
Cons: "The food was ok. The crew were friendly and helpful."

Pros: "nothing good"
Cons: "Crew's behavior was very rude to me, firstly they barly understand English and they lie to me by giving me non-vegetarian food and said it is vegetarian. When I resist and said I'll complaint against you guys so they took food and trashed it immediately without my permission."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2 hour + delay on a Friday afternoon. 4 consecutive flights , all late. Best was 30 mins late, last two over 2 hours. Flight attendants stiff, no sense of having any kind of fun. They probably have to work all the extra hours this airline tags on to their shifts from being late, for free. Food is marginal at best. Cheap flight and you get what you pay for. I Have to agree with the guy next to me said, never will fly China airlines again."

Cons: "Ticket agent was rude and unfriendly. Airline caters to group tours. Many of of passengers were loud and the stewards didn't care. Plane was dirty similar to a low two star hotel."

Pros: "They fly into Haneda which is much better than Narita from an access viewpoint."
Cons: "Beijing airport is a disaster. No aircon, 45 min security delays. No jet way, bus to plane. No entertainment system to speak of. Reminds me of flights 30 years ago. Food is really unpalatable. Wine is local stuff that really doesn't do anything for me. The pour size is minute which is understandable as they only seem to have bottle per flight. Flight delayed departing by about 40 mins, which is pretty good by China standards. Had us sit on bus for nearly 45 mins with diesel fumes permeating the interior. Use them if you are on a budget."

Pros: "Very comfortable seat with a pillow and an excellent comforter. Slept 7 hours straight which is unusual for me. Clean restrooms. Food was ok."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "We are very frustrated because of the almost 8 hour delay without any accommodation coming from the staff and crew of Air China. We need reimbursement for the hazard and very long delay of the flight."

Pros: "On time. Good service."
