Pros: Deni, our flight attendant, was most attentive, giving Robert, who is legally blind, assistance with safety features if needed, one on one as we were seated.
Cons: The flight was delayed as we were waiting for documents required for our entry to the UK - surely these should have been ready in advance? Perhaps a taste of things to come if (when) we sadly leave the EU. Same poor sandwiches.

Pros: I’m a vegetarian, they made it easy with the online ticket note. I appreciated the thoughtfulness.
Cons: Small leg room but plenty of overhead space for luggage. Don’t forget you can only have 5kg of personal item and 10kg of carry on luggage. Not many people follow the rule but they will make you pay. I paid for heavy checked bag and still had to take items out... not sure if that’s just me!

Cons: Flight was delayed. Seats are so cheap that are super uncomfortable. Food is terrible.
Cons: We paid $37 to check in 1 Baggage and the flight from SFO to Beijing had delivered the baggage in baggage claim area. We had to take Chinese Visa to get to the baggage, even-though it is a transit. We missed the next connecting flight to Shenzhen as it ate up all our time. Now have to travel in the mercy of the airlines for next flight. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LIST THAT "VISA NEEDED IF CHECKING IN BAGGAGE" MISSED ALL FLIGHTS
Pros: The service has improved and nice to travel with them especially when I'm star alliance gold member.

Cons: Food quality (we did not eat a bite), space
Pros: Flight crew helpful
Pros: Crew was nice.

Cons: My connecting flight to san francisco was through Delta, which it was on a different terminal, I had to carry my luggage out of the airport in order to get to delta’s terminal - the buildings are not connected.
Pros: Flew from Vancouver to Qingdao and despite my concerns after reading earlier reviews, the flight was great! The seat was comfortable and reclined enough that you could actually sleep. I think I was one of very few non-Chinese passengers on board and there was a bit of a language barrier, but the staff was super friendly and accomodating.
Cons: I ended up with a middle seat, but the seat was comfortable and roomier than normal, so it wasn't so bad.
Pros: Nothing, it was extremely annoying.
Cons: Because of the two hour delay, I was going to miss my next flight. I told the flight attendant about my problem. She said that it would be fine, and they would help me once I landed. That didn't occur. I got through customs and rushed to the airline desk. They then told my that my connection flight had been delayed. I went through security, and I sat next to my gate. For hours it said delayed, but didn't give a new time. I asked the staff, and they said later. After four hours, I asked again, and they told me that the flight had left. I asked another staff member, who told me that the flight had been canceled, and I needed to get a new ticket. I never got an answer as to whether the flight had been canceled, but I was not going to leave Xi'an that day. They sent me to a hotel, which was more than 20 minutes away from the airport. In the morning, the airport transport was late, which caused even more stress. To top all of this off, I had to go to three different people for my ticket because there was some unknown problem.
Pros: Crew and comfort good. Well organized and professional .Communication good. Aircraft clean.
Cons: Choice of music and movies very limited, and those vy average quality. Food vy average.
Cons: Need to pick up all my luggages at Chongqing airport and use the cart to carry all luggages from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2. It's a LONG way. Why can they auto transfer all my luggages from Hainan Airlines to Beijing Capital Airlines? They even didn't mention the transfer process when I bought the ticket. That's too bad.

Pros: The plane smelled so bad, none of the crew speak English

Pros: Excellent crew, clear announcements in both English and Chinese, decent food and entertainment.
Cons: Hectic boarding process that required taking a bus and everyone pushing and shoving to board the plane in no particular order. Stayed on the tarmac for 2 hours before taking off and did not recieve frequent updates. When the seat in front of you is fully reclined you have essentially zero space.

Cons: They seats were cramped and didn’t have a lot of cushion. The BBQ chicken lunch was not good. There needed to be more frequent water available
Pros: Crew was good. Flight was delayed by incoming flight from Oslo so I was anxious that I might miss my connection in Oslo. Flight attendants announced connection gates for transit which was very helpful.
Cons: Perhaps a little more communication about delayed flights. Even though passengers were asked to let connecting passengers through at disembarking, it was still very difficult. Perhaps back stairs to the plane as well as front would have helped.
Cons: Everything was excellent

Pros: The number of take offs equaled the number of landings :)

Cons: How you guys gonna do for it ?
Pros: We love how they service food and drink.
