Pros: "None"
Cons: "."

Cons: "1. I am not sure if your crew members could speak English or not. I didn’t understand what they were talking about or what was happening. 2. The plane took off under extreme thunderstorm. I am not sure if this was safe to do so but the plane was extremely bumpy, going down rapidly for about 30 minutes. The whole cabin was then in chaos. People started turning up, crying and writing last words. However, your crew members GAVE NO INSTRUCTIONS, BROADCASTING OR UPDATES ON WHATS GOING ON. What they did was mocking around with each other in Cantonese. 3. This would be my last time travel with you - I was your loyal customer since student time. But after this awful experience I chose not to go with you anymore."

Pros: "Crew member helped me get extra space for injured leg by having a passenger next to me find a new seat."
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Crew was super nice. The flight was so easy and cheap."
Cons: "Better resolution for the monitors on the Air China screens."

Pros: "Crew are okay. Lucky, there wasn’t that many people on the plane."
Cons: "Rest room need clean more and food wasn’t that good."

Cons: "Delayed an hour due to inbound flight late on schedule"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Price and journey time"
Cons: "1. Halt at Beijing (4.5hrs) was a bit too long 2. Boarding needs to be based on seat#/section#. Can't be single line for all passengers which creates chaos (people stand in 1 queue for almost an hour to board) 3. Meal option reserved/requested (hindu veg or indian veg) was not correctly honored."

Pros: "Very professional flight crew"
Cons: "-10 degrees and people hoarded in a bus to board an international flight that has no access to aerobridge. Vegetarian food for Air China is rice and boiled vegetables. Broken entertainment system. In short, the flight was disappointing"

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: "Flight attendant was very nice and cared for passengers"
Cons: "Flight delayed and we waited for a very long time for unboarding due to tenical issue."

Pros: "Staff pleasant."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. No leg room."

Cons: "Customer service on the flight was poor ."

Cons: "Do not like the food at all."

Pros: "Patient and helpful crew"
Cons: "Small seats with little legroom"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Really Bad Aeevice"

Pros: "on the plane, Crew in CA are great! Food is delicious! Entertainment is very good!"
Cons: "I had a terrible time yesterday when I had to transfer from CA 4120 to CA 429 in Chengdu Shuangliu to Sydney. When I got off at Shuangliu airport From CA 4120 at 23:50pm, there was no airport bus to transfer me from T2 to T1 international Departure at Chengdu Shuangliu. I have to run in the dark nearly 2 km to catch 1:20 am CA 429 to Sydney Australia. Really bad international service in Chengdu Shuangliu!!"

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: "This connection has been changed and it was too early for my flight, it got changed and i was told I don't hv a connecting flight.. ca7265"
Cons: "This connection has been changed and it was too early for my flight, it got changed and i was told I don't hv a connecting flight.. ca7265"

Pros: "crew was competent the flight left and arrived on time"
Cons: "boarding was awkward. We had to take a bus to the plane and walk up the stairs The food was mediocre The seat was not very comfortable"

Cons: "Our first segment was delayed and when we landed, no priority was given to get off the plane and run for next flight. We barely made it. Got to Dubai for a wedding and our luggage didn’t make it. There were five of us flying together. No one got their bags. We landed at 1030 pm and went to out first event that night in the same track suit I flew in. Awful airline. Never again."

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

Pros: "I like the food. The trip overall very nice"
Cons: "Nothing I don’t like. So far we’ll regarded except in China they don’t speak good English"

Pros: "Free wine"
Cons: "There’s no wifi, barely any english speaking movies, and the food is horrible. Will probably never fly air china again."

Pros: "We did eventually make it home, so I'm counting that as a plus."
Cons: "Our original flight got cancelled so our departure time got pushed up one day, ending our vacation one day early. Then when we went to the Air China counter to get our boarding passes, the ticket on the new itinerary did not exist. So I ended up spending an hour on the phone (incurring a large international phone cost) in order to get on a plane. Our layover in Beijing was 10 hours on the new itinerary, which was terrible especially since we had great difficulty finding anything vegetarian in Beijing (ultimately just ate a bunch of croissants as a full meal). The food quality on the flights themselves were not great, but that is minor compared to how poor the rest of the experience was."

Pros: "Crew service was excellent. Food choice and spread was nice and I was able to eat well despite not eating the chinese dishes."
Cons: "I wish the food was american chinese - like PF chang !"

Cons: "The food was gross. The look and smell of it all was enough to make me just go hungry for the 5 hour flight. Airplane food is not for me."

Pros: "generally good"
Cons: "failure to comply with special food needs after many calls and e-mails stating organised so a 10 year old boy had to do without food on board due to allergy to NUT &Fish and being a 18 hour journey not appreciated"

Cons: "Missed this flight because the first one was late. There was not enough time in between. And my luggage didn't make this flight either! It became a big debacle and I spent an extra $200 fixing it."

Pros: "The staff was very pleasant."

Cons: "On 11/29, the flight from Beijing to San Francisco was delayed because the incoming plane was late. All passengers were greeted at SFO with instructions for compensation. The instructions read "To claim the currency compensation, passengers must have a debit card issued in mainland China and marked with Union Pay!" If you are not a Chinese resident, you are out of luck!!! Americans be warned: Fly Air China and be treated a second class passengers!"

Pros: "Overall i won't prefer to travel from this airlines anymore."
Cons: "the way airline treat the passenger was very poor and rude. I came to know this when my Air China flight from Sydney to Chengdu have been cancelled on 16th of November 2017 at 21:40 pm. I had to reach my destination on time by 17th of November 2017 to attend my marriage ceremony but unfortunately i missed and had to bear a great loss. THEREFORE, I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST A COMPENSATION AND REFUND FOR MY FLIGHT."

Pros: "It was an experience..."
Cons: "The shuttle to the plane took a good 20 min."

Pros: "The flight was fast"

Pros: "Great movies. Flight crew was very nice."

Cons: "Well, the aircraft doesn’t have TV at the back of each seat."

Pros: "Flight crew were helpful and efficient. Food was fine."

Pros: "I made it in the end"
Cons: "first flight to China was delayed so the connecting flight to Tokyo was missed. no explanation was given for the delay no food vouchers were available that night they lost my bag in china for 3 hours they brought me to hotel in unmarked bus with no explanation hotel told me that air china would only cover half the cost so I need to pay more or share a room the next day, air china's manager was uninterested in helping or explaining there hotel arrangements food on the last flight was just rice gruel and an aged egg. I am flexible but that's not even considered a meal in china. there is at least salt or pickled things in it. audio ports on plane did not work properly. on arriving home, most of the items in my suit case were crushed (coat hangers snapped, boxes crushed, bags ripped open) my dslr camera batteries were all taken (alkaline based ones) I travel between japan and america two or three times a year for the last 30 years. this last trip was one for the books! not sure where to start"

Pros: "Very nice and attentive staff"
Cons: "Delays without any information"

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"

Cons: "needs some new movies specially for having to sit for 14hrs. no USB adapter either.food was okay.seats are not too comfortable.airport was hot, AC wasnt working, tsa employees are rude and brutal when searching into your belongings and body.

Cons: "Food nasty and cold. Service rude!! I travel all the time and this airlines not my fave."
