Pros: Good food, relatively comfortable for a 13 hour flight

Cons: The entertainment system was modern, but not that many good, English-language movie or TV options. I found it difficult to get wine and black tea (they served green) - both of which are essentials for a long-haul flight. Flight was a little late. The security lines for transfers at the Beijing airport is a complete mess, which was the most stressful part of the trip.

Cons: Air China practices very democratic way (in a bad eay) of boarding the plane, without distinguishing the 1st class, busineas class, and Star Alliance members from the rest of the passengers. The food is abit overly simple, in spite of the short flight - a sendwich wrapped in an alu-foil... And it was crazy cold in the cabin.

There was also a glitch in the system so that the reading lights for each seat could only be operated by the seat directly in front. The food was very uninspiring and poorly presented. The tea and coffee were awful!!!!!! The choice of movies,etc was very limited. Thank goodness it was a night flight and not too long!

Excuses were made due to weather, some say it was due to staff. Never will I fly with them. Disorganized and never on time.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: First let me say I am a big fan of Philippine airlines. The customer service is outstanding, I am always made to feel very comfortable and the movie selection is great. I would give them a 10/10...if it weren’t for the surprisingly below-average special meal selection....read on...

Cons: I have been a gluten-sensitive foodie for 7 years. I am not vegetarian. I still eat sugar, salt, spices, dairy, and fat. I have order a GF special meal for the past 3 or 4 trips I’ve flown but I always end up asking for one of the regular meals instead because the GF meals are SO awful. They are completely devoid of all salt, sauces, spices or any flavor, and are so bland that it’s like eating astronaut cardboard food. For example...the last flight I took (Manila-San Francisco), the regular meal options were a chicken sausage dish with some mashed potatoes and veggies, a wonderful colorful julienne vegetable salad, a flan pudding (GF by nature) and some bread with butter. The other option was a delicious smelling pork belly over rice (seriously some of the best pork belly I’ve ever had) and some veggies with the same sides. Everything was gluten-free except for the bread roll and looked much more colorful and fresher overall. By contrast, the GF “special” meal that I received was a plain chicken breast with no salt, steamed veggies that were overcooked and mushy to the point of colorless baby food, with no spices or sauces, a watered-down fruit salad, a rice cake with no butter and a banana instead of dessert. I was amazed at how bland and flavorless it was. Gluten-free does not mean sugar-free, low-fat, or dairy free. It simply means the absence of wheat flour. I still like sauces and spices. And I still like butter. A non-fruit dessert would have been nice. And since when does gluten-free mean flavor-free? I would have MUCH rather preferred the regular meal option with just a gluten-free rice cake substitute. Thank god they had extra regular meals for me to eat instead. Point being…if you’re not extreme celiac and just gluten-sensitive, I recommend ordering off the regular menu and just omitting the bread roll. The flavorless meal isn’t worth it!

Pros: I was in a window seat for this flight with no one in between me and the man in the aisle. It was nice to have some space to spread out in.

Pros: I loved my experience with HA. The flight attendants and airport staff are so friendly and welcoming. The Hawaiian music and informative video are lovely touches. 1) I do NOT appreciate the $25 charge for luggage. Southwest does not charge for checked bags, and they are thriving. I think it's greedy to charge for luggage. 2) I wish they'd offer a meatless option when serving meals. So many people are plant-based now and I wish HA offered that to patrons. 3) Movies and TV in-flight should be free, as in...gratis. Other carriers offer free in-flight entertainment and HA should not charge. 4) The planes are nice, the crew is FABULOUS; truly a standout in the industry. They have that beautiful Aloha spirit.

Cons: Air China practices very democratic way (in a bad eay) of boarding the plane, without distinguishing the 1st class, busineas class, and Star Alliance members from the rest of the passengers. The food is abit overly simple, in spite of the short flight - a sendwich wrapped in an alu-foil... And it was crazy cold in the cabin.

Good 6.3

Pros: the timliness the processing at beijing the helpful checkin people at the akl airport. The baggage delivered promptly and without breakage. The crew worked hard to ensure

Cons: the shops at air port are expensive the toilet sinks were slopping and did not drain well the airline apologizing for the lack of food choice before each service pl advise airline to ask for choice at the check-in or at least make a note of the preference through email, makes life easier for them and the passengers. announcements were in chinese and the english ones were not very clear . it would be good if the announcements also came up on the seat screens CLEANLINESS WAS AN ISSUE with the overhead lockers not clean to the pull up table and magazine spaces not clean

Pros: 음식

Cons: 스튜어디스 분이 애들이 우니까 귀찬은 표정을 지으셧고, 애들 밥도 배식때 빼먹고, 애가 화장실 가려고 기다리는데 배식 차를 비켜주지 않아서 되게 오래 기다렸고, 결국 다른 엄마가 비켜 달라고 해서 비켜주고, 비행기 착륙전에 애기 우니까 따든다고 사탕을 갖구와서 안 먹겟 다는데 억지로 입안에 넣어 줬다.

Good 6.6

Pros: Surprised at the variety in food offered (2 different dishes), check in was easy and quick. Blankets and pillows were provided on each seat.

Cons: Seats were not as comfortable as I wanted but I was in coach so you get what you pay for. I traveled from NY to Japan with a connection in China and I would definitely do first class next time only because those seats reclined more and they had more space. My coach seat would be fine for a shorter flight.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: The flight was fairly smooth. There was a good selection of movies.

Cons: Coming off the plane in Nanjing was frustrating as they were totally unorganized and the plane was delayed because of this. We had to go through customs and recheck everything. We then went back on the same plane to the same seat. Kinda confusing but all in all it was okay.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
