Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "This is just a poor airline in which I will never fly on again. I will blame it a lot on miscommunication but seats are horrible and need way for cushion especially if you are on a 11 hour flight."

Pros: "Great experience all together"
Pros: "Loved the Kabuki actors used for safety instructional video - stay for the ending credits!"

Pros: "More leg room than most flights."

Pros: "Good service, food"
Cons: "Too many announcements the whole flight Wake you up 2 hours before landing by turning on lights, activity (too much time, need more sleep)"
Pros: "Food tasted great, flight attendants were super nice love the food holders under the seats to rest your feet"
Cons: "Nothing really to Complain about. Selection of movies could have been a little better but it’s a Japanese airline didn’t expect a lot of American Content"
Pros: "Meals were decent. Staff friendly. Had no problems and was able to sleep a bit."
Cons: "The economy seats on my plane were strange, they didn't really recline but rather the bottom part of the seat moves forward to make your body less vertical."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "I asked for a small water bottle (early flight from Tokyo to Jkt they gave a small water bottle) and it seems they mase a big deal to give me one and I traveled with my 2,5 yo and I tried to keep her hydrate since she has problem with dryness ans her skin"
Pros: "The crew are so courteous and helpful."
Pros: "The crews on ANA (Flight Attendants) are the hardest working, most polite and service oriented of ANY carrier I can remember. When the cabin lights are ON, the crew is hustling to keep the passengers occupied and chewing. Free Beer, Wine and mixed drinks in Coach! Every Service - Snack, Drinks, Lunch, Dinner, Coffee/Tea, Second and Third rounds of drinks includes a cold towel to wipe your face and hands and most important, trash is collected promptly EVERY single time. WOW. I noticed that Flight Attendants take notes on sleeping passengers for every major meal service, and they take the time to revisit those customers when awake to check they might have wanted to be fed. I also noticed that the crew has special double sided tape to pickup crumbs and spills in the aisles so grime is not tracked into the carpet. Dont be surprized to see a flight attendant cruising the aisle after dinner with a soft cooler full of small vanilla Hagen Daz cups..."
Cons: "We flew from Bangkok to Washington Dulles with a connection in Tokyo. Snow in Japan caused crew shifts to max out and ultimately a dramatic change in flight departure. (Guaranteeing a missed connection) This caused multiple downstream challenges. 1. Original flight was scheduled for 00:30. (Half Past Midnight), rescheduled flight was scheduled for 12:30 (Half Past Noon) For Americans unused to a 24 hour clock, this made emails From ANA very difficult to wrap your mind around. Was it a typo? What happens when you miss your connection? (Turns out weather delays do NOT result in accommodations or meals being provided) Rescheduled flight should have been for 1231 with (AM/PM in Parentheses) 2. For passengers who spent their vacation/trip near the equator, the prospect of spending the night in snowbound Tokyo was simply not addressed in the cancellation email. The better option was to stay in your original point of origin and make the connection in one day, but email has NO telephone number for passengers to call to make these arrangements. (We ended up calling a toll California telephone number to be sure we got an English speaking agent) 3. Many SE Asian departing cities have a crazy baggage weight policy that allows for Two bags of 25 Kilos each , but if you have a single bag that weights 32 Kilos, you must pay excess baggage. Although the policy may NOT be specific to ANA, there are hundreds of folks of all nationalities repacking suitcases on the floor of the airport, to try to meet the regulations. As a traveler I understand this, but as an ANA customer it makes no sense, especially when the ticket agent cannot charge the overage to a credit card at the ticket counter. Instead sending you to a different location then waiting for you to return with a receipt. Its a huge scam and ANA can do better communicating the rules to passengers via email or their web site. Nothing starts a long trip off worse than arguments over arcane rules. 4. Changing a return flight arrangement as a result of weather happens at the last moment, but seat assignments apparently could not keep up. I would rather NOT fly than face a center seat in coach for 14 hours. I cannot explain what happened, but repeated attempts at advance check in showed NO assigned seats available, the ticket and gate agents could not improve on this, but BOTH flights ended up having empty seats and in the end we stressed for nothing. ANA must be able to do better, improving their IT systems to make advance seat assignments possible no matter how challenging the problem of "equipment" and other changes in the face of a canceled flight."

Pros: "Good Business Class, will fly them again. Excellent service."
Cons: "No meal served upon take off, snacks only."

Pros: "I've flown to Asia many, many times and NH is the best of all the carriers I've used."
Pros: "clean seat and tray"
Cons: "poor movie selection. slow cleanup after meal (more than 1 hr)."
Pros: "In-flight service from staff was excellent as always, food is good but not outstanding (but let's be clear this was economy class), movie selection is good."
Cons: "From Japan to other places they're always organised, but boarding in London was a little chaotic which is a common problem for ANA flights in other countries *to* Japan - they hadn't set up signs properly or made clear announcements for families with children, First Class, Business class boarding etc. The First Class/Diamond status queue (not for me!) was actually set up in front of a supporting pillar, basic organisational things like that. On balance though, still a top-class airline."

Pros: "nice sevice"
Pros: "Not a full flight, seat next to me was empty which was good for a 12 hour."
Cons: "Better selection of movies, real window shades instead of the transparent ones."

Pros: "seat so so"
Cons: "Worst airline in the world ! Rude staff terrible customer service, flights were late, connecting gates were a mile away. I will never fly air China again. Food was disgusting"
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: "The crew was “matter of fact”."
Cons: "My flight was canceled and then the time changed 3 times before I finnally got my flight changed to a completely new flight and route. Was suppose to leave Thursday night at 10:40pm and now I’m leaving Saturday morning at 10:30am. Ruined my entire trip."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "The food was very poor."
Pros: "The plane made no unscheduled landings."
Cons: "The extreme delay that caused me to nearly miss my connection with Air China, the incredibly low level of English spoken on a flight originated in the US, and the complete dismissal of three cabin crew members when I asked about arrangements to be expedited to our connecting flight to Bangkok. Avoid this airline completely, and if at all possible, transiting through Beijing Capital Airport."
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."
Cons: "Flight very delayed, no information provided in English."
Pros: "Exceptionally, there was an audio on this flight! I enjoyed movies very much! Also the chicken lunch there was delicious."
Cons: "For my return flight, I expected the same, but in vain."
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."
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: "Wide bed and good support for good sleep"
Cons: "Not a big movie selection"
Cons: "Late No wifi internet said there was Late Had to run through airport to catch connection Bags didnt arrive Now have to wear sweaty clothes (after running for a day or two) Food sucked"
Pros: "Was the cheapest option at the time, and quality wasn't worse than the others"
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: "minimal legroom"
Pros: "Food is horrible"
Pros: "Experience during the flight was ok."
Pros: "Flight attendants are friendly and accommodating. Willing to meet all my reasonable needs. Meals are Ok."
Cons: "Seats are a little small considering my body size."
Pros: "The staff was very pleasant."
Cons: "My bags were lost!"
Cons: "We were never given an update at the gate that our departure would be later. Everyone was standing in line ready to go for about 40 minutes before we finally started boarding. The seats aren’t the best. This 6 hr flight had no entertainment."
Pros: "Comfort of the plane"
Pros: "Nothing..missed both connections, air china staff were not anywhere in beijing..i was told counter was closed at 10pm and to call a lical reservation number to reschedule my flight for the next day? Seriously..i paid 5k for this ticket..my bags were checked in to my final destination but at the third destination i was told there was no transfer service ( at guangzhou) snd that i needed to claim it and check it back in even though i cleared immigration at beijing..no one speaks english and will send you in circles around beijing airport..bad bad bad"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Timeliness of the flight, good decent meals and most important, best and cheapest fare."
Cons: "No leg room, crappy toilets, rush between changing flights, as there was very little changing time"
Pros: "They have taken care of me like no other airlines do this days, always with a smile, lots of movies to watch from all over the world"
Pros: "Complimentary Movies with headphones provided were a plus. This was my transfer flight with AirChina they were not too happy about me being a vegetarian. 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 for both flights. (No I was not by the exit.) I am a vegetarian. And asked for no meat during meals provided. They didn't have my name in a special request list. The crew member did know how I would be asked to be put on the list and was rude when I told her I was a vegetarian even when I informed multiple crew members during my boarding since I had an issue the previous flight. 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: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "We sat at the gate after boarding about 20 m, delaying the flight...no explanation was given. The food wasn't so good and the worst part of flying air china is having to transfer in Beijing. The security lines are always horrid and people working there make it stressful...even more than America which is hard to do. The other issue is no internet but China and the internet is a bit tricky."
Pros: "Good leg room. (I'm 6'2") Nice and courteous flight attendant's. Good cabin service. Overall Air China was much more orderly and sane than China Eastern. I would use Air China again."
Cons: "Like all Chinese airlines they want you to keep you phone off the entire flight. oh well."
Cons: "After long, chaotic lines to transfer planes in Beijing to head to Shenzhen I was showing my passport to the security guard, and suddenly he calls for someone, and another guard walks away with my passport. I had no idea what was going on. I wasn't told to follow him, but he had my passport, so I followed the guard to get my passport back, and the guard hands me my passport, laughs, and points upward. I walk upstairs and see a mess of lines. A bunch of flights were canceled due to a small storm. The machines to rebook a flight were broken, so I had to wait in a line for 2+ hours in order to rebook a flight for the following day. We were told that there would be a complimentary hotel, but I waited in a line for an hour to inquire about a hotel room, only to be told where my luggage was. They could have held up a sign saying where everyone's luggage was, instead of misleading us, saying it was a line for a hotel room. My suitcase was in a pile of suitcases from all the flights that were canceled, and was difficult to find. After spending 6 hours at the airport sorting out new travel plans, I ended up with no place to sleep, but fortunately found a friend of a friend to stay with. The next day, I arrived at the airport for my new flight, with no seat assignment. I waited in a long line to get a seat, then went to board the plane, and the flight was delayed 3 hours. Overall, it took 34 hours to arrive in Shenzhen after leaving San Francisco. If I had automatic updates sent to my email, or, if there was signage at the airport giving people information, that would have been helpful for the crowds of confused people. I also might have had a chance to reroute my flight Hong Kong to get in earlier, but I had no idea what was going on. There was terrible communication that was not due to a language barrier."
Cons: "They're are abusive to their customers. 5 hours to 7 hours delayed on both of my flights.."
Cons: "Long delays zero communication to passengers."
Cons: "my stuff in the checked luggage was missing, obviously somebody took it from my luggage, also, my luggage bag was broken due to the rudeness of staff. very very disappointed."
Pros: "GOOD ATTITUDE"
Cons: "my stuff in the checked luggage was missing, obviously somebody took it from my luggage, also, my luggage bag was broken due to the rudeness of staff. very very disappointed."
Pros: "Only crew"
Cons: "1 No provision for veg food 2.you cant use phone even in flight 3Even in this age buses ferry you from plane to the terminal,disgusting 4Security/immigration people lack smile on their faces"
Pros: "Entertainment Comfort Amenities"
Cons: "Have English speaking ground staff in China"
Pros: "one flight the attendant thanked me for being gold The agents at red house for gold members in Shenzhen were amazingly helpful in getting me a flight in time to connect when mine was badly delayed, really helpful"
Pros: "Food was pretty good, flight attendants pretty nice"
Cons: "Only overhead entertainment, an hour delayed"
Pros: "Polite staff, relatively comfortable and decent food."
Cons: "No form of in flight entertainment and chinese air regulations prohibit mobile phone operation. Boring, but not the worst."
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: "Rude staff at PEK. Very unhelpful in dealing with a missed connection."
Pros: "Very efficient airlines and staff members. I never got on/off a plane so quickly. Staff was attentive to everyone's needs and were very friendly. I loved how affordable their roundtrip tickets were. I would fly Air China in the future!"
Cons: "There wasn't a good variety of entertainment on the flight, so I tried to sleep more on my 12 hour flight. There should be newer movies and more English movies. It seemed that most people on the flight weren't even Chinese, so it would be nice to lessen up on the Chinese movies to make room for English :) It was also very inconvenient how much this airlines changed their flight times."
Cons: "1. Flight got delayed, so I missed my connection and I had to stay at the airport overnight. They did it provide a hotel to stay saying the delay was weather related and not their fault 2. Communication skills are extremely poor in Beijing airport 3. All flights were delayed from Air China."
