The hard product itself, the Dreamliner and 777-300ER were brand new with fully flat beds in business class.
EVERYTHING ELSE. They ran out of food 1 hour into a 16.5 hour flight, despite the business cabin being 3/4th empty. No menu either. The food they did have was completely inedible. I ordered the fish and was served a giant rock hard hunk of pork which the knife could not penetrate. Totally disgusting. Because of this I brought my own food for the return journey. But perhaps because of the language barrier they just threw it away instead of putting it in the fridge! No one spoke a word of English. Woke up after sleeping and the entire business cabin was full of sleeping economy passengers whom had obviously bribed the crew. The one business class toilet was occupied the entire flight by crew taking stinky dumps, filthiest airplane bathroom I have ever seen. I complained to China Southern and all they offered me was 500 miles (!!) and a plastic model of a plane, but I could only get the plane if I lived in mainland China, which I obviously don't. Other airlines (British Airways, American Airlines) have offered 25,000 miles just for the IFE screen not working, much less starving your passengers! Transferring in Guangzhou was a nightmare and the lounge was appalling. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY CHINA SOUTHERN'S LOW LOW PRICES, it's just not worth it.
As Platinum Member of QR Privilege Club I booked on the Qatar Airways website a Qatar Airways flight and got confirmed a Qatar Airways flight number.
What else than as cheating the customer, the refusing of an upgrade with the excuse that this flight is an Cathay Pacific flight, can be understood.
Very much disappointing.
The KLM staff that were assigned to this flight were incompetent. After telling them I was flying with Etihad and I had a 30kg limit the told me to unpack my bag to reduce them to 23kg. I did this 3 times, and then at final weighing they figured out I was right and that I could board with 30kg. Morons!
I found the crowded squashed seating very uncomfortable, , the 380 from Dubai to UK was wonderful, the relaxed atmosphere was great, more leg room, and the staff were extremely pleasant, not sure I want to fly in a 777 again terribly claustrophobic .
We got denied access to the plane because the gate agent did not know how to process our US visa. She lost 30 minutes, and they then closed the flight. We were stuck with our 3-month old baby. To deny their responsibility, they claimed we had arrived late at check in. After intense negotiations, it took them 5 hours to rebook us on a different flight. A SHAME!!!
There was a lack of air and no possibility for individual airing your seat, during our flight we had to stand in the back because we were almost passing out of overheating 30 Celsius plus heat in our row. We asked for a cooler temperature and only the last 20 minutes it started cooling but then to ice cold. My audio was not working properly, at max it was still unclear. We have had better flight experiences.
My seat..... No row in front of it.
Crew were excellent. Friendly and professional
Had a TVs show I've been wanting to see, Blackish, which we don't get in the Uk
Choice of films. I've seen a lot of them and the rest were awful
Why do flights always serve chocolate biscuits, chocolate ice cream, chocolate cake? Strawberries,carrots and humous, grapes, olives, would make a nice alternative for example.
Hot food boring, tasteless
