We were not aware or made aware of the distance from the domestic to international gate. We were told to take the 1830 pm flight to connect. We almost got a heart attack from running to our very far gate. I wish we were made aware that a shuttle bus would have been available to go to the international gate."
Pros: "I wish all long haul flights were like this. Very clean and well maintained cabin space, good quality food, very attentive, helpful and polite cabin crew.

Pros: "Overall, this is a short trip. Everything is ok."
Cons: "The plane was late in boarding, and even later in arrival. We were given no explanation, only an apology. And it turns out worse, because apparently we had been shifted to a plane that was going to continue into Laos, so the plane came in at the International Arrivals Section and we had to take a bus from there to get our luggage in the Domestic Arrivals Hall. Making it all even later. No food offered for this quite expensive flight, only water, and no entertainment either."
Pros: "Loved the pod seating in business class. Very confirtable"
Pros: "The UA rep gave poor directions for transferring in Seoul; we ended up nearly missing the flight (and other UA passengers did miss it despite VN holding the plane for 40-plus minutes). The crew was helpful and friendly, defusing a truly stressful situation."

Pros: "late flight from sg,will usually depart on time"
Cons: "they moved to changi terminal 4. Terminal 3 is much better because of train connectivity."

Cons: "the lie flat bed was hard, no padding... uncomfortable."
Pros: "Tube entry into aircraft rather than bus"
Pros: "Lined up, crew took our tickets, we loaded on the bus to bring us to the plane, but the bus just stayed there for 10-15 mins. Then they told us all to get off the bus and go back into the terminal and wait. No explanation or apologies. Waited another 30 mins then everyone lined up again. They never explained what the issue was - it was a bit unsettling. Like, was it a meintamice issue? Should we be worried for our safety? Or was the aircraft simply late/delayed? Upon taxiing and take off the pilot finally said they were delayed from a previous flight and the plane needed to be “checked.” Would’ve like to know that an hour earlier when we first got kicked off the bus."

Pros: "Very good experience especially compared to USA airlines"

Pros: "Food was nice and plane was clean and not too crowded."

Pros: "Great safe airline. Friendly flight attendants. Roomy seats."
Pros: "Airline was able to move us to an earlier flight after we arrived early! Thank you so much Vietnan Airlines!"
Pros: "Good side of it give business class passages and elder people, pregnant women and family with children on board first. It's good to make a family comfortable with their children."
Cons: "Poor menu service and I have no choices over the menu. All the request menu it just no services like it at all in flight, stewardess not so friendly at all. Interior design it's so dull colour not very cheerful airlines. Regret to fly with Vietnam Airlines. I will never take your flight anymore."

Pros: "Very professional in the way they approach the business. Everyone is well trained. The crews English is surprisingly good. As a handicapped passenger they have the whole wheelchair routine down pat. I like this airline. The food is marginal and on the 1.5 hour flight I would discontinue food service. I even like the exterior color of the aircraft."
Cons: "For a regional carrier. There is nothing to criticize"

Cons: "Very nice trip"
Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was fine"
Cons: "The business class lounge was closed, they gave us $25 per person voucher, but no one store in the airport wanted to accept them. There were not enough seats available when we were waiting for boarding. Business class entertainment needs significant improvement."
Cons: "OUr departing flight was delayed almost 1 1/2 hours, resulting in a missed connection in Cairo -- this is not uncommon. The connecting flight waited 6 minutes, then left us. Arranging an alternative (through Rome & onward by late evening) was done , but no one was at the transfer desk for an hour."
Pros: "The overall experience was good"
Cons: "The lounges in egypt airport could be better"
Cons: "Take of was 1:30 minutes delayed. Entertainment was so bad and boring. Crew were super rude."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Crew not attentive not trying to give the extra service that you pay so much money for. Food options hopeless. No welcome no introduction. Nondrink on arrival. I could’ve sworn that I was in a budget economy section. Old Shaking plane. Other than a business class seat you get nothing."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was decent, I was especially impressed by the very wide variety of music to listen to. The crew were very friendly, helpful and attentive. The plane was clean and presentable, especially the lavatories. The seats were comfortable and the blankets provided worked well too."
Cons: "Food was bland and the chicken dish was dry and difficult to chew. Movie selection on the entertainment system was mediocre, with limited variety of films in general and especially limited variety in languages other than English and Arabic. A problem which I encountered on board was a big gap between the ventilation panel at the base of the wall and the flooring, through which the dessert of my meal fell and which presented the risk of losing further items. I hope this is fixed promptly."
Cons: "Staff are rude in comparison to other airlines, hostess greeting us actually called my 2 year old naughty for touching the toilet door whilst boarding! Media is also limited and with constant interruptions, plus not available for take off or landing! Tray tables were dirty, I’ve honestly given up trying to eat the food on board these flights! Despite numerous tags and a note on my ticket the stroller is never able to be brought up to the aircraft door. I won’t be flying Egyptair again"
Pros: "Thanks EGYPTAIR"
Pros: "The Pilots professionalism, frequent updates. The attention given to the passengers, especially mother's and babies."
Cons: "Ground staff arbitrarily decided whose carryon luggage they should take because the flight was full and loading over head compartments do take up time and might cause delay. I would like to suggest that an announcement be made and ask passengers to volunteer their carryon to be loaded with other luggage..."
Pros: "Good service and friendly environment"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Fair was inexpensive."
Cons: "Too many security checks"
Pros: "Best landing ever, if I was sleeping I would not even have woken up during the landing. Well done to your skilled pilots."

Pros: "Crow was helpful and every think goes great"
Cons: "The flight delay and the pilot went in circle a lot of time"
Cons: "Flight attendant not asking what i'd want like everyone else. Because i look different?!"
Pros: "Food was good, crew were pretty nice. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "It took me over 2 hours to board because the counter has never seen a green card extension. I also had a dog that was connecting with me on Emirates, they couldn't figure out the price for the dog at all. We started with $600 and went down to $188 which I was told on the phone. People working at check in should be way more knowledgeable of other things than just regular paper work and not giving travelers attitude because"
Pros: "We had a 10 hour lay-over in Cairo and EgyptAIr shuttled us to an excellent hotel and provided lunch and dinner - all for free. This was most excellent and so much more pleasant than sitting at the airport!"
Cons: "If EgyptAir would distribute a little English sheet how the steps are, where to get the passports back (at the EgyptAir Counter in the main hall at the airport), which lines to go to (we didn't officially immigrate, but still had to go through immigration upon return, which wasn't clear). Maybe a word on legal boundaries of the status in Egypt - EgyptAir had the passport, can we go to the pyramids or not - would be useful, too."
Pros: "Was very smoth"
Pros: "Confortable seats, good entertainment, attentive flight crew"
Cons: "Pilot didn't clearly communicate what the issues were for our delay. Safety rules and regulations were ignored by passengers and not enforced by crew (people walking aisles while plane was taxiing, passengers without seatbelts on during takeoff and landing, etc)"
Pros: "Excellent Helpful boarding & on flight crew. New aircraft"
Cons: "Very poor entertainment choices."
Cons: "A flight attendant was discussing with a passenger through out the flight disturbing other passengers. What a shame for a red eye flight"

Cons: "Have the plane on time"
Pros: "New plane with charger available at every seat even in the economy class. Clean interior, polite crew"
Cons: "the flight was delayed"
Pros: "The flight to Chicago was ok, but the crew (how the flight tender behaved) was at some points ridiculous"
Cons: "Poor behavior of the flight tender, no humility, poor respect, disgraceful... also the seats in the toilet are defective (all of the passengers noticed this) - the plastic covers when you lift them (open) do not keep vertical position, they always fall down what is very annoying (how can you use the toilet if the cover is falling on your back all of the time?)"
Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "The entertainment did not work for a number of passengers in my area. The system was restarted once, with no results. The crew did not seem to care. The food service was poorly coordinated."
Cons: "No air conditioning!!"
Pros: "Staff was very nice and friendly"
Cons: "Small air craft"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours, and there was not much information for how long and why"
Cons: "Lack of information"
Pros: "The plane was on time, friendly crew, food was pretty good as well"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, cabin was as expected. Luggage arrive safely and on time (was a little worried it would not show, because online checkin said I had to pick up luggage and recheck before flight) (Virgin tagged it to go all the way through). So did not gav any issue."
Cons: "Flight was one hour late. No food service or entertainment for this flight, but was as expected."
Pros: "LOT short flights are well run, organized, cabin crew are approachable and friendly. Announcements from the flight crew are informative and reassuring. Check in and boarding in Budapest was smooth and easy."
Cons: "It was all good."
Pros: "Staff was great and responsive"
Pros: "The in-flight food service was perfectly fine. I also thought the entertainment options were of good quality. Perhaps a bit limited but there were movie options for a variety of tastes, including mine!"
Cons: "The seating was rather cramped. I'm 6'4 so I'm used to the lack of space however my neighbors on this flight were highly inconsiderate of all neighboring passengers. Rather than help with the situation the cabin crew seemed to take special delight in crashing into my knees. Combine that with a steady barrage of hip checks to my left shoulder and this was a bruising flight."
Pros: "This time I found an ail place"
Pros: "Interior seats in Premium Economy class."
Cons: "Employees at the WAW airport. They hired new people. Young people. And they act like Gods. From shaking heads to improper comments to the passengers. Quality of sound at the airport sucks. All announcements hard to understand."
Pros: "Large seats, decent fare - although inconsistent."
Cons: "Chairs are bare minimum and starting to fall apart. Crew is bad. Half amenities don’t work (eg no espresso machines, despite the fact they are installed). Almost no entertainment."
Pros: "Excellent job from boarding to the end of the flight! Thank you all!"
Cons: "My concern was the super small sit , but after all I am a big boy!"
Pros: "Service in business class."
Pros: "Flights ran on time."
Cons: "Slow cue at check-in. Boarding gate miles from Security, 25mim walk. Plane aged. No food, tea in a flimsy paper cup. No entertainment."
Cons: "This plane is never on time. Count at least 45 min delay. I avoid this airline. Take their tickets only if they are significantly cheaper than the competitors."
Pros: "The boarding and the flight itself was fast as there were a lot of people for connecting flights in Warsaw."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 1.5h which is not ok. I see that for LOT is a standard practice unfortunately."
Cons: "The flight was delayed two hours and I missed my next flight because of that"
Pros: "food prices, all on time"
Cons: "Cheap airline that is priced like a major airline. They charge for checked in luggage on flights between different EU countries. Major airlines don't do that, so check the fine print before purchasing."
Pros: "Relatively new aircraft with not-bad room between the rows. Water, coffee and tea offered gratis, otherwise pay for snacks, but prices not bad. Good flight for a budget airline. Twi toilets for a full plane a bit ridiculous, but the flight was only 2 1/2 hours, so no big lines."
Cons: "No new movies or no tv shows to watch on a 9hr flight. If I knew I would have downloaded movies on my phone or on a usb stick(u have the possibility of using those). Horrible food, cannot even describe! No free alcohol. If you pay cash for the alcohol you end up paying double as if you pay with Credit card. I paid for 3 drinks, were brought only 2 and when I asked for the 3rd one they didn't understand what I want. Crew speaks only polish, they have little knowledge of English language. They are not helpful and they don't care about passengers! Delays on every flight, Friday LOT airline doesn't have to many flights out of Warsaw! Be aware, in the event of a delay and loosing your connecting flight you might end up spending a night in Warsaw. I WILL NEVER USE LOT AGAIN and I will make sure to spread the word!!!"
Pros: "I like everything food and the chaires very comfortable thanks"
Cons: "Nothing to complain Everithing is excellent easy flight Thankyou"
Pros: "it was fine and my luggage arrived"
Cons: "seats no food"
Pros: "I took an international flight so we were on the new Dreamliner planes and they were very nice. The windows were huge and had a way of dimming so that it was dark in the plane without having to shut them completely. The seat spaces were fairly small but overall it was a very updated plane. I am a very picky eater but 3 of my 4 meals were delicious!! They mostly serve pasta with some sort of meat but I noticed that myself and I were licking our plates clean!"
Cons: "It was VERY obvious that the people that work for this company REALLY hate their jobs. When I checked in they were rude and threatened to take my computer because they told me I couldn't bring it into the US. When I got back home to customs they laughed and told me that that isn't true at all. In the flights the stewards and stewardess' never smiled, they hardly made eye contact and just seemed to absolutely hate life. At one point I was so hungry so I asked to purchase some pringles because that was something that advertised on the loud speaker. When I asked the flight attendant she made the biggest deal about it, laughed in my face and basically told me no. To be honest I am not sure if this sort of a attitude is something that is part of a different culture but I feel that if people are in the service industry that they should at least smile and respond with, "you're welcome" when someone says, "thank you". I will 100% not take this airline again due to the very rude people one board and horrible customer service."
Pros: "The aircraft in general was newer and all the screens were working and clear."
Cons: "The lowest volume was almost too loud for comfort on the entertainment system for headphones. The seat has no cushion left."
Cons: "There was a delay at Warsaw Airport for almost 3 Hours I arrived home 2.00 Am I missed a family wedding that night"
Cons: "I fly 35 years at least 2 times a year to different companies. For the first time in the life of the company flew Lot (and the last) and was unpleasantly surprised: 1. The stewardesses did not hide their antipathy towards the native speakers of English and Russian (they were scornful and rude), although they were friendly and attentive to the passengers speaking Polish, 2. The food is tasteless and small (I have ordinary needs)."
Cons: "No good meals available in the flight."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was ok. They usually charge for any alcoholic beverages, though."
Cons: "Extremely rude staff (allowed a passenger to almost break my hand luggage with hers, and literally laughed at my concern,) kept us on plane for 2+ hours with minimal info given on the problem, then de-planed and kept us waiting at Warsaw airport for another 2 hours (no food, water or even a manager appeared until the end of that 4 hours, by the way, and only after a screaming mob of passengers formed,) then kept us on the new plane for nearly another 2 hours. This made for an approximate 6 hour delay, with minimal comfort, food, water, info or sympathy throughout, nor an offer to switch our flights and/or provide night accommodation due to the 5+ hour delay on this evening flight (as is within our passenger rights.) The plane finally arrived to JFK way after 1 a.m., which completely ruined weekend work and social plans, not to mention how exhausting and disrespectful of an experience it was. PLEASE NOTE THAT EVERY SINGLE OF THE FOUR LOT FLIGHTS I'D UNDERTAKEN THAT WEEK WERE DELAYED IN A SIMILAR FASHION - AS IN, WITH LITTLE INFO OR EXCUSE. No, thanks, Lot - and you should refund us all."
Pros: "Nothing was good."
Pros: "The flight was great, good leg room, comfortable seats, pleasant crew"
Cons: "all good"
Pros: "Service, listening to my questions, overall!!"
Cons: "Seats were too small."
Pros: "Food - Free dinners even for economy class. Entertainment - Every seat has a TV that offers multiple languages and tons of blockbuster movies from a variety of genres. They also offer many television shows in multiple languages and genres and video games. Roomy- The seats are as non-roomy as any airplane. However, the flight attendants don't give you any trouble when you want to just get up and walk around and talk to people. It gives the plane a roomy atmosphere. You can go to spacier sections of the plane to hang out."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was great. Nice to have two meals in flight"
Cons: "Meals could have been a better selection. Did not know we had to request vegetarian meals in advance."
Cons: "Occidental snacks could be great"
Pros: "Plane didn't crash! :)"
Cons: "My issues were with the other passengers, not with anything the airline could've prevented. It's a budget airline, you get a budget experience, but I didn't have any huge problems with anything."
Cons: "Decent budget flights. Short transfer time onto second leg was perfect and easy to follow. Only advice is not to use e.dreamers as agent, they add on a hefty fee unable to back out of. Lesson learnt!"
Pros: "Entertainment was not good the TV did not work"
Cons: "The food and stalf very good"
Cons: "Our flight was severely delayed 6 hours from Heathrow, and that is where this horror story began. No one bothered to tell us anything. When we arrived in Beijing for our connection to Bangkok, we had to search out people for help, there was absolutely no one forthcoming with explanations. We were travelling as 2 friends, I was booked on one flight and my travelling companion on another 15 hours later! This only got changed when we explained that we both only had hand luggage! To then board the flight and sit on the tarmac, engines running, simply waiting, no explanations again!! Will we ever fly China Airways again?? If we could exchange our return flight tickets to that of another Star Alliance member we would."
Pros: "The flight waited for all the people to come on the flight before leaving.The food was good, and they didn't disturb sleeping passengers in the middle of the flight."
Cons: "The TV screen was horrible, and half the time it didn't even work. The games said how to use the controller, but the controller that was there didn't even work. The crew needs to serve water and drinks a little more than twice in the 8 hour flight. And when the water and drinks are served,they should pour a little more than 40% in the cup. Dehydration doesn't make for a good experience especially when you have already come off a 12.5 hour connecting flight."
Pros: "First off, the flight was cheap, really cheap, so for the price it was amazing."
Cons: "Planes was a bit old so the entertainment system was a bit temperamental, poor image and the wife’s controller had taken a beating, so was hard to navigate and adjust settings."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "No movie selection and nowhere to charge phones. On line check in was a nightmare."
Pros: "Boarding was prompt and efficient."
Cons: "No power sockets to charge phones, Entertainment selection and functionality completely outdated, just managed to watch 1 movie before I gave up trying. The air hostess tried to help but mentioned that it’s just slow. During dinner service I asked for a second glass of wine with my meal but was refused as only 1 glass of beer or wine is allowed per passenger and flight, which I found very stingy as an airline and irritating from a customer care perspective."
Pros: "The crew and boarding was great. Food was ok."
Cons: "Online check in was not possible and when asking for extra leg room at the gate options were limited. I was told I would be on an exit row and window. However, I was one seat forward of that. It was technically a window seat if you don't count the jump seat for the crew... To top it off, a red eye flight with a seat that does not recline is no good. I do understand that being 6'5" causes air travel to be more difficult. It just seems that some airlines are more accommodating than others."
Cons: "Very Old plane The entertainment system was down during entire 9hour trip Food is terrible, noodle so dry, can not eat After toilet visit, the water is not working, can not wash your hand"
Cons: "Customer service on the flight was poor ."
Pros: "Wide bed and good support for good sleep"
Cons: "Not a big movie selection"
Cons: "They added 10 hours to my scheduled layover and would not give me lounge access for the inconvenience."
Cons: "No notification that my itinerary required a visa - despite a 144hr transfer allowance for both Shanghai and Beijing it does not apply if you fly in at one and out the other! You only 24 hrs in that case. And I found this out at the gate in Osaka."
Pros: "Overall better than I expected but some areas need improvement. Food, entertainment and crew service."
Cons: "I lost two days due to this mistake."
Pros: "The staff, from airport to plane, were brilliant, the food was initially surprisingly nice, but by the time I'd been in transit long enough for the third meal, I just couldn't face it."
Cons: "The Seats were OK and the legroom was pretty bgood for economy, but the extra headrests on the larger Heatthrow/beijing aircraft came in at about shoulderblade height and made finding a truly comfortable position impossible. Definitely one to look at the price step ups for better seats in future."
Pros: "Very good services"
Cons: "Could have used newer model aircraft"
Pros: "Provided entertainment and meals were excellent"
Cons: "Seat plug did not work and crew lied about no more entree and brought two individuals of own ethnicity (Chinese) that asked after me. Waited 45 min for water when asked. I got there three hrs early and had to sit towards back bc airport said that they were not assigning seats behind business class up to 45 at all."
Pros: "AVML was very good thanks to German catering."
Cons: "Outdated electronic device policy. Can't even operate in flight mode. While other airlines offer wifi service (LH, UA ETC)."
Pros: "Good services, arrive on time."
Cons: "Waited a long time for the shuttle transfer after getting off the plane."
Cons: "1) food 2) no transit zone in shanghai (4x through customs) 3) cant use phone (even in the flight mode)"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Airport in lounge was a waste of time, no wifi, terrible coffee, no showers."
Cons: "I flew Alaska Airlines to San Jose and San Jose to Shanghai on air China. I was told by Alaska my baggage would be carried all the way through to Pudong airport. My baggage claim ticked showed that. When I got to PVG Pudong airport in Shanghai my baggage was not there they were not very helpful and difficult to understand. They told me they thought my baggage would come ther on another flight and gave me a form. By the next evening I had not heard from them. I emailed them again and I'm currently in Japan waiting to see if they will send me my luggage. Do not expect the kind of customer service in China as you would in the US or Japan.Shanghai airport is, at best, difficult to navigate...stay away from all the taxi solicitors."
Pros: "Fares are reasonable, timely arrival, good food."
Cons: "Crappy not well maintained toilets, very little leg room."
Pros: "Price price and price!"
Cons: "Food! Horrible in one word. Shanghai connection is too long and wastes a page in my passport: why should I pass the security and passport checks only to turn around and fly away? Clearly this can be improved so that the transit passengers can transit without customs"
Pros: "More english movie needed"
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: "Flight crew was attentive and food was good"
Cons: "If there were empty seats, potentially relocating people so you could have a little bit of elbow room?"
Pros: "flight was cancelled. No options given, nor information about reimbursement given"
Cons: "Flight was 18hrs late, and we were kept at the boarding gate the whole time without information from ground crew. We were not offered hotel room or meal coupon, only instant noodles. It was a very bad experience for us."
Cons: "The flight was delayed so late that I missed my international connecting flight home despite leaving a four hour gap. The inflight service was pathetic. The food was atrocious, the media system was broken, there was not wifi, and they did not allow the use of cellphones the entire duration of the flight even in airplane mode. The ground staff was completely unhelpful. I was barely able to secure an alternative flight home after about a half hour of negotiating. I don't think I could have got the flight at all had I not spoke Chinese. None of the other foreign nationals were able to get a new flight. The flight they put on back home had to stop in Hawaii and cost me a good extra 8 hours. I got home 12 hours later than I had anticipated. I am filing for compensation. What a joke. Air China shouldn't even both with international flights if all their domestic flights are delayed and they are barely able to help customers speaking their native language (to say nothing of English)."
Pros: "Smiles of flight attendants and services"
Cons: "Flight delayed, limits of food choices"
Pros: "Very courteous behaviour"
Cons: "While the experience of flight was excellent, the missed flight to SFO led to severe inconvenience.The bus arranged for hotel was delayed,all heavy luggage had to be carried inside bus leading to hardship and severe personal strain as the did not have the capacity to accommodate all luggage. The extreme strain caused lasted during flight to SFO. It is suggested that due care needs to be taken of elderly, passenger with children etc.pl avoid such traumatic experience of such transits. Except for this rest of the experience was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but there was no announcement of reason nor was the new boarding time posted so everyone was forced to just stand by boarding gate and wonder. The food was dreadful and the portions were skimpy. The major food groups were white bread and white rice. The entertainment console was supposed to operate by touch but was unresponsive. The movies were 90 percent Chinese. I won't fly Air China again."
Pros: "Clean plane delay"
Cons: "Delayed for 2.5 hours."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They accidentally switched my last name and first name."
Pros: "3-3-3 formation of seats with decent legroom. FAs tried to be helpful but if you only speak English language maybe a barrier."
Cons: "The flight wasn't even there at boarding time both ways, no announcement of delay or new boarding time. When we approached the desk, they said there us no delay, when we asked about why the flight isn't there yet, they said 'may be a little bit'. Then we sat in the plane and we queued up for take off but were in the tarmac for about 2 hours. Very little information came out on the PA or from the FAs."
Pros: "I got upgraded to economy plus and the staff was fantastic"
Pros: "Crew disengaged the smoke detector in order to smoke on board. There was a significant water leak in the business class bathroom that was not addressed. No communication of safety issues between the crew and pilots. Apparently the crew must be dissallusioned to think rules don't apply to them over international waters."
Cons: "Terrible airline with several safety violations. Stay away from this one."
Pros: "The plane is a major upgrade from any air china flight I've taken using economy! The screens are in full HD and every seat included a charging station for both USB and and regular plugs. The staff was very friendly and kind and they served two meals on the flight. I also appreciated how the crew would frequently bring water down the aisles but also gave you the option to get up and grab it yourself."
Cons: "The plane was pretty cramped and on a 13hr flight this can be bothersome."
Cons: "I'm soooo upset about the service after my flight canceled. 1.the staff ignored me when I asked if I could have a VIP to rebook my tickets earlier because my mom got cancel and was going to do the surge . But he went away and never came back, no any response of YES or NO. 2.I don't know why the airline company still need 11 hours to rebook the tickets with all our flight information and our passport liscen numbers already , making us waiting till 3 am at the airport. 3. I asked my boyfriend to talk to the staff on phone, and the staff told my BF that he didn't know my English was not good. I said to him loudly that I had told him , but the manager besides said "don't shout at my staff"to me, even without asking me what happened . I don't think that was a good attitude for the service department, especially to a foreigner. My email address is Chentongtong@wku.edu.cn"
Cons: "The lack of follow up and follow through support on lost baggage. 2 lost baggages."
Pros: "Cheap ticket"
Cons: "On the way from Auckland to Beijing, our flight was diverted to Hangzhou. Air China gave no communication why and when we would be able to leave the tarmac so we waited on the tarmac for 6+ hours. The pilots and flight attendants barely spoke English so they were not able to communicate the reason for our cancellation nor what they would do to provide other options for our connection flights. I missed my flight to the US due to this cancellation without reimbursement from Air China."
