I was very happy to discover that an airline staff person was waiting for me when I got off the plane, having already changed me to another Taipei flight. She explained things and guided me to the right place. She was able to walk amazingly fast for a woman wearing high heels!"

Cons: "服务态度非常好"

Pros: "Nicest flight attendants, good food. Best international flight I've had."

Pros: "The flight attendants are quick in services and with great manner. Cabin foods are generous, filled with variety and tasting the best among various international airlines that I have experienced between LAX and Taipei, Taiwan in the past ten years. The seat belt on light and bell were kept at minimal, in contrast to other airlines like EVA, China Airlines, Korean Airlines and United Airlines."

Pros: "This was my first flight on JAL. Their customer service was especially good for English speakers. The food on the plane was good, but geared toward the Japanese customer. I must say that it was tasty, but unaccustomed to my palate"
Cons: "I think it would be good to put more food that is geared to a more international palate."

Pros: "The family had an amazing flight and the in-flight entertainment was excellent! My kids remained engaged for 6 hours and my wife actually took a nap..."
Cons: "As usual it is most difficult moving through the airport in China. It took a long time to get our bags and they were "damaged", however my box made it without difficulty."

Pros: "All was fine"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Sitting in the Economy section, I was lucky to get the two seats next to me empty so i was able to stretch and sleep. Before the flight landed, the head flight attendant came to greet every passenger and personally thanked them for choosing JAL. I've flown on JAL several times and thus had never happened so I was pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "Economy Class seats are uncomfortable for long haul. Wish they could do something about it. Some of us dislike rice crackers and peanuts as welcome snacks so a different option could be nice."

Pros: "Staffs areattentive"
Cons: "Chair space so limited"

Pros: "The flight was great! Premium Economy on JAL is worth the price. The leg rest was a huge perk and luckily nobody was sitting next to me so it felt extra roomy!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection wasn't as robust as other flights. I had to make sure and "save" things for the flight back so I wasn't bored. I always pack a book or game along the way, so it really wasn't that much of an issue."

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and helpful. Overall it was as good as a 12 hour economy flight can go."
Cons: "Unfortunately they ran out of some food by the time they got to us and only had fish left. It was okay, just not my favorite. We were 35 minutes late taking off which contributed with me missing my connecting flight."

Pros: "Overall flight was comfortable and staff was friendly."
Cons: "No details were provided about the food on offer. I didn't know what I was eating and no options were provided"

Pros: "The excellent service and courteous staff."
Cons: "Three babies were crying throughout the flight which made the flight in uncomfortable. The flight attendants were spending a lot of time accommodating the babies and parents requests."

Cons: "returnning flight was not attended well,so much different from going flight. Going was excellent but returnning was not nice in all face."

Pros: "Even at economy class everything is all inclusive, meals, entertainment, even alcohol. Fast service with a smile. They will go to any length to accommodate your every need."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "JAL is curteous and professional. They had a flight attendant dedicated to helping me and my infant daughter and provided bassinet and assitant with luggage during the flight. Totally different experience from American carriers like United who treat you like cattle. I hope I can fly with JAL again soon. They are incredible. I was super satisfied."

Pros: "The entertainment system was grest with many movie optionstar and a large screen for viewing. The seat was very comfortable and there plenty of leg room."
Cons: "The plane was delayed by 45min and I had a connecting flight which I ended not missing. The food was average. I was expecting something a little more Japanese instead of chicken pasta. And I didn't have a second option."

Pros: "They provide us slipper for in flight comfort"
Cons: "Old aircraft"

Pros: "Good solid flight on a relatively comfortable plane"
Cons: "Narita seems to have had delay problems as of late. What should have been a short flight was extended over 40 minutes on the runway. Not the airline's fault by any means, but I'd recommend looking for flights through Haneda if you're passing through Tokyo."

Pros: "I loved the service, the toothbrushes in the bathroom, the cleanliness of the bathroom throughout the flight, the snacks, and the kind flight attendants. This has been my best experience flying to the US from Asia! I would love to take Japan Airlines again as I was incredibly impressed by their services."
Cons: "The lack of quality movies and the way it was organized on the screen. They could organize movies and TV shows by categories instead of one big movie section."

Cons: "The DC China Embassy web site clearly states that a valid APEC Business Card can be used in lieu of a Chinese visa. In spite of this I was denied boarding by JAL. It turns out the system is not fully in place, and eventually I was issued a 10 year multiple entry visa by way of apology. JAL did not waive cancellation fee, and I suffered considerable economic damages."

Pros: "Our flight from Tokyo to Beijing was very pleasant. The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. There was a lot more leg room than most American/European airlines we have taken. The food was quite good and we even got Häagen-Dazs ice cream."
Cons: "I wish they had a larger movie selection, but they had most "New Releases"."

Pros: "Great movie selection, food was decent, good beverage service, good temperature in the cabin, good leg room"

Pros: "Japan Airlines was a pleasure, from beginning to end & in between. The flight attendants emulate joy in their service to others, they are observant to the clients' needs even before they are asked for help. In a long flight such as this was, it was obvious that they also tend to the comfort of the passengers by ensuring that the restrooms are always clean & presentable. Will fly them again whenever I have the opportunity."
Cons: "Can't say that I have ANY complaints at all!!"

Pros: "Nothing . Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Refund people money"

Pros: "Crew was brilliant"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful, gong out of their way as even bringing me camomile tea. It was lukewarm, it it’s the thought that counts."
Cons: "The seats were way too tiny on this giant airbus, even for me and my daughter-in-law who are both under 5 feet and under 100 lbs. te flight was torture. Food also was not as good as previous Lufthansa fare."

Pros: "Good crew, comfort and timing"
Cons: "I got what I expected"

Cons: "Boarding be insured as I have a ticket"

Pros: "Very amazing"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "It took a while for the staff to open up the boarding gate . Upon boarding I was given a sandwich which contained eggs."

Pros: "Service leg room and service with a smile"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had a connecting flight, both were with Lufthansa. There was an hour between the two flights. We went straight to security and immediately to the boarding gate but they had closed the gate and would not let us board, even though there was 15 minutes before the flight was due to leave. We were refused a refund and had to move flights to another airport 2 hours away and then had a 5 hour delay. We lost our car reservation as we would arrive too late to collect, we also couldn't check in to our hotel as planned as the hotel only allow check in until 11pm; we would have got there at 1am, so then had to book another hotel for the night. Airport staff at Lufthansa told us they could not help and told us to go away!"

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "What’s not to love?"

Cons: "Small plane, a price for everything."

Pros: "My previous flight was delayed and they held the plane for us."
Cons: "They lost our bags and I still haven’t gotten them back. Nobody at the airport was helpful at all and I still can’t get information if my bags are coming or not."

Pros: "Height Space, good pilot and some of the food. Good landing and overall pilot skill."
Cons: "For the whole journey I had a small child kicking, knocking, tapping behind me. Kept waking me up also nearly ten hours of whining. I was genuinely uneasy and uncomfortable for the whole trip. I think there should be a designated child with adult area as I really don’t think this is acceptable. It is stressful enough traveling for 30+ hours this really is not welcome."

Pros: "The plane was extra comfortable . The Lufthanza is it exceptional airline very nice people better than most American Airlines"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled 1 hour before departure... customer service was appauling"

Pros: "In this day of continuous service cutbacks Lufthansa has managed to keep amenities that make long flights bearable. The boarding was early and efficient. Meals were decent and plentiful. Hot hand wipes were provided. Hundreds of video entertainment options and fairly friendly English speaking flight attendants. I recommend paying the small upcharge to choose seats with extra legroom. totally worth it on the long haul"
Cons: "Be early. They began boarding before the stated time"

Pros: "Nothing. Will never travel with airline in the future. Definitely will not recommend."
Cons: "Flights are delayed frequently which resulted in missing connection from Frankfurt to New York. On arrival, passengers are herded like animals from one point to the next with no explanation as to what resulted in the delay or given sufficient supplements for food etc."

Cons: "Need AC outlets and TVs"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything as expected."

Pros: "On time Boarding was convenient"

Pros: "Friendly staff amazing boarding experience"
Cons: "No vegetarian options for food"

Pros: "Punctuality, rapid boarding, nice to still have free snacks (choice of sandwich and full range of drunks)"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Check in 2x and security 2x Then rushing about"

Pros: "Friendliness of staff Efficiency"
Cons: "Overall a very good service and no complaints but if In House entertainment was provided it would enhance the experience."

Cons: "Flight cancelled. Stuck in airport for 24 hrd"

Pros: "Online check in worked well through app."
Cons: "If you leave something on the plane, don't expect for it to be handed in. My iPad disappeared on the flight. The woman at the boarding gate in Bham kept shouting at everyone, she was really rude, both flights were late taking off."

Cons: "Unable to make the flight due to connecting flight being cancelled."

Pros: "Plane confitions, food. Srvice"
Cons: "Seats are still uncomfortable le on Economy class."

Pros: "The short transist time in Frankfurt"

Pros: "Staff were polite Comfort ok Food was basic No entertainment."

Cons: "Everything.UEverything.United is suck"

Pros: "The crew were friendly, respknisbe and professional, while the food was tasty. We were on time and kept well informed along the way. The movie selection was good and the touch screens were some of the best in terms of image quality and responsiveness I've seen aboard a plane."
Cons: "Space and comfort. Lufthansa is joining too many airlines in figuring out the exact minimal space a human needs to be able to be seems hurtling through the air. This leads to cramped, tight spaces with little to no freedom to shift your body. Because of this limited space, seats can only recline so far and leave one uncomfortable, though that angle is enough to create even less space for the person behind you or for you, when faced with a reclining front neighbor. So, minimal benefit of minimal recline and maximum discomfort caused for that minimal gain."

Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Not on time. Lost luggage."

Cons: "The kids were allocated away from their mothrr"

Pros: "Lufthansa delivers always a great service. Good timing, schedule and service!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Despite not being able to recline my seat, I at least had room for my legs, unlike the last flight."
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. Boarding was a bit chaotic, and the constant shuttling around Frankfurt airport is just ridiculous. (Not that the airline can do anything about it)."

Pros: "La tripulación muy amable y la comida muy buena ."

Pros: "Restrooms on lower level a first for us. No waiting or lines In aisles . Entertainment selection decent."
Cons: "Reclining in seats not adequate for sleeping; very difficult to be comfortable."

Pros: "Food and seating space much better than Delta."
Cons: "My luggage was left in Frankfurt at connecting flight from Frankfurt to Atlanta"

Cons: "Because of a family illness I had to reschedule my flight 2 weeks before. Because the flight was booked through a secondary company, rebooking the outgoing flight ended upp: a) costing me as much as the whole original return flight; b) was no longer a 1 stop flight as I also had to stop in Frankfurt plus the company would not allow me to choose directly, I sent them details and then they booked what they could find; and c) I lost both the outgoing flight ( which was charged) and the return flight ( which was not changed) premium seat bookings both of which I had to pay for a second time. If I had booked directly with the airline this would have cost a transfer fee and I would not have lost the premium seat bookings. This was therefore a great expense and inconvenience. I will no longer book flights indirectly when using kayak. In future I will search using google flights and then go straight to the airline sites to book. Very disappointed. I never had this problem when booking with kayak before"

Pros: "The boarding was fast and clean, but we still Left with a little delay. The flight itself was fast and we arrived a bit ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The advance we had gained in the flight was taken up by an apron position, slow ground service and a distant arrival gate."

Cons: "6 hour delay , no explanation given whether the original flight was cancelled or not, bags have been lost. Complete chaos."

Pros: "Promptness, profesional and nice service. Everything overall."

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."

Cons: "Nothing."

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: "Leading up to the flight, customer service can only be contacted by email. Don't even try calling. They never pick up and won't get back to you. At least the flight is very good."

Pros: "I booked this time China air for my parents and because of delayed flight we had very bad experience. Japanese boarding ticking staff were cooperative but seems they don’t have power"
Cons: "They said they understand situation but they were afraid to solve but there were staff name Ms. Umeda Ms. Yasukawa and Ms. Ai were very nice trying to handling the situation but as we were very cooperative and understanding that not their fault. My parents are old my mother can’t walk probably and Blood pleasure patient. I ask for room in Beijing because of 18 hours delayed stay. But they failed for get Hotel. But Japanese staff were nice also crew. I would love to give 5/5 rating but honestly was bad experience only because of delayed flight and couldn’t get recovery."

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: "Everything smooth and comfortable"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment system was very limited and of no interest"

Pros: "The crew were very attentive. Lie down seat"
Cons: "A little outdated for Business class in comparison with other airlines however for the price i would say it's worth it."

Cons: "User totally different airline than air China The seats are far too small for Western people"

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: "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: "I was surprised that there were tons of in flight entertainment to select from. Crew was also very nice"
Cons: "The seats weren’t the most comfy and one of the meals was bad"

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: "Price"
Cons: "Transfer in Beijing gave only one hour between flights. Impossible to make with China's cumbersome security procedure. Why did they give us those flights? Told staff on plane that we had a tough connection. No communication or procedure to help make transfer. Got to the gate BEFORE flight was to take off but plane was uncoupled from ramp and NO STAFF present. Went to another Air China gate and could not get any help. No supervisors to help. Five people missed the connection. Had to wait over EIGHT hours for next flight and was offered NOTHING by way of compensation. Does not appear that Air Chine wants to live up to the country's status in the world. Very poor service."

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"

Pros: "In general the flight was fine."
Cons: "When I made my reservation the time to make my connecting flight in Beijing to Dulles (IAD) was 2 hr. Air China shortened the delay to 1 hr. We arrived on time but did not get off the plane until 12:00. They began boarding our connecting flight at 12:15. My husband needed the use of a wheelchair and with the help of the airport staff member we RAN through immigration (flew in from Hong Kong), had to go through security a second time, lost my iPad at security due to our rapid departure. We got to the flight at 12:30 and made it just in time to board. Our luggage could not be transferred in time and arrived the next day. This is just too difficult for people of any age to do...my husband and I are both in our 70s."

Pros: "Wide bed and good support for good sleep"
Cons: "Not a big movie selection"

Cons: "We were so delayed—gate number didn’t show up until after we were to take off—missed connecting flight to HNL. They cited ‘weather’ for our missed connection but had never said anything about this in Hong Kong when we were waiting hours for our plane to arrive. We were told to get temporary visas so they could put us in a hotel that night. We found our way to the meeting place only to be told there were no more rooms. The worker was completely rude and just ignored us. We were stranded all night on the departure side, waiting to check in in the morning to a flight we weren’t even sure we were rerouted on. We were given 200 yen (which is nothing) and had to go thru Tokyo, and wait another half day to catch a connection to HNL. The whole trip took 36 hours instead of 16. I’ll never fly this airline again. Something similar happened to me flying China Eastern. Honestly avoid all Chinese airlines, unless you want to spend a lot of time arguing with people and at least 2-3 times the travel time. (Not to be confused with Taiwanese airlines like China Airlines which are much more dependable and hace way nicer everything.)"

Pros: "Love the space of airplane"

Cons: "The Air China ground staff was horrible. The return flight was late and so I missed my connection in Beijing. One of the flight attendants then blamed me for it because Kayak had booked the connecting flights too closely. I was then shuttled downstairs to ground crew who were terse, uncommunicative, and downright mean. I ended up in a hotel and can only hope this last part of my flight gets better. I’m still in beijing as I write this. And no wi fi on the domestic or international legs of the flight. Primitive."

Pros: "The staff was helpful"
Cons: "The flight was cramped up and not clean"

Pros: "A bit of the food"
Cons: "No valid explanation for the 2 hours delayed of the flight from montreal and upon arrival in Beijging there is a lot of miscommunication about what passengers have to do. Everybody does'nt know what to do. No one can exactly give us the way and right thing to do. No anwers to our questions. We were hungry and no way of getting in touch with our family members because airport wifi does'nt work for us. We were ask to go here and there without explanation and the hotel given does'nt deserve to.be even a 1star..a better than nothing hotel. Tired, hungry and very exhausted . No words can describe our frustrations. We deserve a refund if not at least a compensation for that very bad service experienced on that flight of Air China 880."

Pros: "The premium economy was a bit better, but still on a service level was very poor hospitality."
Cons: "The online service was not user friendly and slow. Our upgrade was said at departure it would be for the full flight and was Not. The staff would not speak English and refused to serve any drinks or snacks as I thought it would be normal. Our luggage was lost and did not arrive at our final destination til 2 days later. On the flight home we were told to wait till our transfer to upgrade and that was denied and said we needed to do it prior. I am beyond disappointed and will never fly with Air China again and the only recourse that was given was from the nice people in Japan that explained this happens all the time and provided a voucher for less than 100 US dollars. I will advise anyone in the future not to fly this airline and I would like this to be investigated."

Pros: "The crew were helpful and friendly throughout, trying to find out what we should do about missed connections during the flight, I was able to move to an empty exit seat (I'm 6'5") so the delay was relatively comfortable."
Cons: "Well we were delayed for an hour and missed connection as a result, but you can't really blame the airline for that."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Food to be improved"

Pros: "Is nothing to be call nice axcept tha modern airport architectural construction."
Cons: "I was very shock with service on Beijing airport. Since I was depanding on weelchair, I found myself uncertain in very unprofessional hands . Thanks of my instinct, I figured out that land servant left me waiting 1and 1/2 hr. in sectin D check desk # 26of Chech Air. waiting for booking my flight to SF.. She said do not understand English and was on the phone looking for instruction how to help weelchair person. I assumed they told her go to check in , so she took me to Chech Airline point wait for bounding pass. The time of arrival to Beijin I was taking care on weelchair by Chinve's lady wery nervous, haotic on security point which cost difiiculties find my passport. and appone delivery me to the plain she ask for money! The last part of experience with ground weelchair services was in SF airport, all foriners workers, create wery unprofessional, nervous atmosphere and demand a money. Looks like AIRLINES OVERLOOK QUALITY OF THE SERVICE FOR THEY PASSANGERS BEFORE AND AFTER FLIGHT. SPEAKING OF FLIGHT. CHINESS FLY ATENDANTS HAVE TO BE BETTER TRAINED, I notice hudge difference between Korean and Chiness serves wich are better. Regards, Elzbieta"

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."

Cons: "no wifi entire flight! stuff force you to turn off device after take off, even phone in airplane mode and self entertaining and playing cards not allowed. very bad english makes comunication hard and almost impossible order food or drink... they just bring watever and arguing about results in ( sorry no engliss). film selection horrible, old movies and 90% chinese. flight attendand skipped warm food after salad. only after reminding food was given! 0 requests after take off or during food if want any drink. you need literally flag down attendant to get your drink. if ordered tea, attendant asking you milk and sugar, you respond yes, you get then only tea no sugar or milk. after that nobody comes! accent were made to chinise pasdengers, more food or snaks were given or more comfort provided."

Pros: "Crew Members are excellent, professional and polite at all times. No one shows their tiredness on long flights. The bathrooms were kept clean through out the flight."
Cons: "Tight seats through out the flights. I am a regular Tea person. When I asked for tea they give the Chinese green/jasmine tea. I don't think they have regular Lipton or Irish Tea. I ordered Hindu meal, for a airplane food it was OK, it could be better. Only thing travelers need to know, Beijing customs/security has long lines and their security check is intense in the transit for the carry on luggage especially after a long tired flight. For this reason I am having a second thought about flying Air China via Beijing. Also, they have random check before boarding."

Cons: "Little movie options"

Pros: "Unedable food"
Cons: "Booked beyond recognition flavourless"

Cons: "Not a single snack in the plane!"

Pros: "Complimentary Movies with headphones provided were a plus. Tenants on the first flight were nice and accommodated me being a vegetarian with out any frustration. But the transfer flight with AirChina was not too happy about it. Meals were provided. If you are not vegetarian or find out how to put your name on a special request sheet it should go smooth."
Cons: "Seats were very narrow and seat by window wouldn't recline like other window seats. (No I was not by the exit.) I am a vegetarian. And asked for no meat. They didn't have a my name in a special request list. The crew member did know how I would be asked to be put on the list. I had a transfer flight with Air china to Dubai. The crew members in that flight were very rude even when I told them during boarding and a crew member came across with the special request sheet. Still no one could tell me how to put my name down as a special request to avoid any further confusion."

Pros: "This leg of the trip was ok but, overall, my experience on Air China was deplorable. They overbooked a flight, booked us on a later flight, and charged us $500 for the new booking. Their argument was that they did not realize we already had our boarding passes when they rebooked us. What?! The entertainment is very dated and so it the aircraft. The only redeeming aspect of this flight was the food. It was really good. Oh... and there are no outlets on the plane, which is not typically on flights to Asia. They also lost half of the passengers luggage."
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Food was very good. Good variety and plenty of vegetables. Staff very courteous."
Cons: "Restroom was Healy used. Should have been monitored more closely. Was not clean enough when I used had to clean myself before I could use. But I used to be a health inspector so maybe my standards are to high."

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Two hours on the deck at Astana waiting take off in steaming humidity and not a word from the staff. They looked blankly at me when I asked to know what was going on. And then they told a bald faced lie. They failed in the service of a pre-ordered mea. in general a pathetic excuse for an airline."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed which caused us to miss our international connection. Flight attendants did not care, did not attempt to get us out faster, or put on a different flight. Asked for an announcement to be made on board or to be moved to seats closer to the front so we could get off the plane quicker, did not happen. Offboarded and sprinted across the airport for our international connection and was notified by gate attendents that the gate closed five minutes ago and that they could not let us on the plane. Meanwhile, the plane sat there for an additional 30 minutes while it fueled and waited for release from air traffic control. There were six travelers total stuck there in San Fran at that gate, all of us begging to be let on the plane to Beijing, the last one for over 24 hours. Zero compassion from staff at the the airline gate. They did not care about us and did not care about leaving their travelers stranded. Our total travel was Denver to Bangkok, 26 hours of travel including layovers in San Fran and Beijing. In San Fran (after missing the gate connection), we were rerouted us through Haiwaii and the customer service agent that did this reroute did not finish the reroute to our final destination. We got to Haiwaii and were stranded again, at the Air China service desk for four hours having to once again provide documentation of our initial travel plans to Bangkok, having them build a new itinerary to our final destination. Overall, 20 additional travel hours have been added to our itinerary, almost double our initial travel time. We have had to call and cancel pre-arranged bookings in Thailand as we are now missing two full days off our trip. I am absolutely disappointed and heart broken as I write this still stuck in the Beijing airport waiting another six hours to connect to Bangkok. My fiancé and I were traveling to Thailand to get married and have received no compassion from anyone at this airline to try and get us there. I am flat out disgusted by Air China."

Pros: "Food was good. and more leg room. Also gave you a pillow and blanket. Of course the flight to China was a much larger airplane a Boeing 747, where flight to Sfo was a 737-800 and a smaller Air bus. All my flights made it to destination on time. Or close to it. You should plan on at least 1&1/2 hours between transfers. SFO was under staffed at security long lines, and empty desks. Beijing & Soul airports had smaller lines. The Visa free transit at Beijing worked well."
Cons: "Long time through customs and security especially when transferring from one plane to another. We had carry on luggage but still had to go through baggage claim and exit before transferring to the next flight."

Cons: "The air China flight attendants are some of the rudest people I have encountered. They were extremely unhelpful and one went so far as to sigh and roll her eyes at me. Our flight was also delayed for four hours with no explanation, while we all sat on the plane waiting. Finally they made us all get off of the plane issued us new tickets and then we got back on. The whole process was rediculous. The seat space was smaller than usual and the plane was very dirty. It was also the worst airplane food I have ever tasted. I would definitely recommend not flying air China. K"

Cons: "No entertainment because no individual screen for movie"

Cons: "Hi, I would like to file for a full refund for the flight which I purchased. Upon arriving at the ticketing counter at LAX, I was denied my boarding pass with the reason that I needed a transit visa. I did not need a transit visa as I hold a Malaysian passport. The ticketing agent was being unprofessional and told me to walk to the Eva air counter to purchase another ticket if I so desperately want to leave. I purchased a business class ticket and was being treated really rudely. I have contacted Air China customer service but they are not responsive or helpful in any way. I showed them the China embassy website stating that I do not need a transit visa and they called me the next day saying they are willing to reschedule my flight for another $700. I would like a full refund for the ticket I purchased. Thanks, Sue"

Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "Air China does not offer wifi on international flights. They also do not allow the use of cell phones during the entire flight, even if they are airplane mode. Their selection of movies was okay, but the archaic screen and audio system yielding a barely visible / audible mess that ruined the experience. The touch screen had lost most of its sensitivity and had to be operated by a remote that was falling apart. The inflight meal was absolutely revolting harkening back to the days when airline food was a complete joke. They only thing they really did right was not delaying the flight. I wasn't so lucky on my return flight..."

Pros: "more legroom than usual, and seats reclined more than average, making for a fairly comfortable flight. Entertainment options in English are somewhat limited."
Cons: "i ordered the special vegetarian meal, while my son had the standard meals. The special meal was plain rice with a bit of steamed greens, my son's meal was the same plus a bit of chicken. Not much food for such a long flight, and no snacks are offered, so we were both hungry. (and we are not big eaters) We had planned to purchase food in the airport (LAX) but all the lines were quite long and we ended up not having enough time. Will definitely plan on bringing food and snacks with us on the return flight."

Pros: "Not much at all"
Cons: "Lack of communication - our flight was supposed to land in Beijing but we were redirected to another airport due to bad weather. After we had parked at the terminal of our temporary airport, we were told to wait further instructions from flight crew and the control tower. After about 40 minutes the plane started going towards the runway without any warning to passengers who had started getting luggage down, opened contents of carry on baggage and luggage, etc. It was jarring to say the least and luckily no one got hurt. Additionally, our flight from Beijing to Vancouver, BC was delayed by 8 hours. None of the gate or airport agents could tell us why or provide any alternatives to those of us with connecting flights. Not only did they not provide information, one of the gate agents gave us the wrong information (the local time at arrival). We missed our connecting flight and incurred significant expenses (hotel and purchase of 4 additional one way tickets). For the reasons listed above I will never chose air china and strongly urge any listeners/readers to avoid them at all costs!"

Pros: "I like food ,drinks,and staff"
Cons: "What i didnt like was our baggage left with no keys, they all broke both keys we put in our check in baggage,just make us so dissapointing!!!"

Cons: "Seat is small and uncomfortable No entertainment on flight Landing late Food test not good poor customer service"

Pros: "I was extremely pleased with the flight attendants. They were excellent at all times. Very professional and friendly. I was particularly surprised at their approach to any passenger who could potentially cause problems for the flight or other passengers. I'm American and to be frank, we are total jerks in flight. You tell an American to put away their mobile device and as soon as you turn your back they're back at it. Americans in general are unreasonable people. The flight attendants' approach to solving problems before they have an opportuniy to become problems was a sight to see, friendly, non-confrontational. They brought beverages around at regular intervals which was very comforting. Also, not only were blankets and pillows at every seat before takeoff, but they were fairly decent. Very comfortable. On a US carrier you can expect to be charged extra for any little thing, and so you don't even bother to ask for it. On Air China you don't have to worry about it."
Cons: "On this flight, nothing. No complaints whatsoever."

Pros: "The flight was accepted by FlightNetworkbut never ticketed. I called and waited on hold for an hour with occasional talk to representative. She indicated that she would call me back in an hour. A ticketing agent called about an hour later and said the flight I booked was unavailable so they switched me to China Southern (where I have no status) but have status with Air China as Star Gold. In addition, they charged me an extra $330 US, so the good fare on Air Chain / Air New Zealand did not materialize. I am thoroughly disgusted with the process and FlightNetwork."

Pros: "The plane that WE EVENTUALLY got on was modern and nice. The entertainment system worked mostly (even though the selection was lacking)."
Cons: "Every flight was late. The staff was unprofessional and not at all helpful to my friend who was traveling with a broken leg. We needed a wheel chair for him so we could race to our connection in Beijing.... they wouldn't give us one and kept bickering amongst themselves, so he had to walk on his crutches all the way to the gate... only to find out they changed the gate because our plane was broken. Only they didn't tell us that, they just kept saying... "you can't board". I could go on and on but I am still too exhausted from the experience."
