Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I have sent to Kayak and to priceline mentioning that the first name on the ticket has a spelling mistake and asked to help to update and this didnt happen. I have a threat to not being able to get out of philippine."

Cons: "Need sweeteners for beverages besides sugar."
Pros: "Timing, Price, Service, Food,"
Pros: "I called the airline phone number many times but no one answered the call. I might not book the air ticket next because of this. Other than that, the overall service is good."
Cons: "The airline website is terrible and misleading. I paid for an extra long leg seat but chose a regular seat because the website didn’t indicate it clearly. I ended up losing my money and sat at the compact seat."
Pros: "Very nice comfortable seats in business and wonderful FA. This was a short connection so i was nervous what to do as ive never been to guangzhou before...but they met me at the departure stairs, another person guided me thru all the steps to security and it was great! No line at security so i was thru fast...very impressive airport and china southern"
Cons: "No vip bus for businessclass, we waited a long time, poor organization. Flight delaye of 30 minutes. Then nine of my luggage arrived in manila!! Very bad! The baggage agent couldnt tell even where the bags were at...very poor organization. Finally got the bags de,ivered the next day but no compensation...im unimoressed with this asoect of china southern..poorly done"
Pros: "The China Southern People in Penang, including the MAB staff that assist, are outstanding. The flight attendants are also wonderful. I am also pleased with the timing of the added flights to and from Penang. The timing is wonderful for my flights to the US. They have become seamless."
Cons: "Bags lost"
Pros: "I like everything. Good and kind staff"
Pros: "Good service, friendly cabin crews and on-time flight. Great price. Relatively spacious seat in the Airbus A 380 flight."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "it is short distance, it is fine for myself"
Cons: "Business class seats weren't fully flat beds to sleep as I expected."
Pros: "Everything on time amd friendly helpful staff. The food was not bad and the sandwiches and drinks in between were good and plentiful. As well there was alot of entertainment options. My bag didn't make it on my flight, but this was due to a tight connection and it arrived on the next flight."
Cons: "Immigration at Guangzhou airport was too time consuming for a 24 hour layover. The airline was convienent and cheap- but if it loses the convienence by delaying passangers with cumbersome visa procedures, I at least will transit through another country and not use China Southern."
Cons: "The food is great in business class, great service, really enjoyed it"
Pros: "Crew wonderful"
Cons: "Actually, no problem"
Cons: "Food too little"
Pros: "Good staff"

Cons: "They broke my luggage, and refuse to pay."
Cons: "The airline broke my luggage, which make me very unhappy. They broke the handle as well as the wheels, they were obviously just throwing my luggage around. I am expecting a call or email back regarding this situation."
Cons: "I reserved the wheel chair service but when I checked in at the counter with the wheel chair symbol, I was told they changed the counter to the other one which is far away and they also rejected to help me check in there. I had to move to the one with a long queue to handle those standby customers. This is my worst experience ever. The service of China Southern airline is becoming worse and worse. Never recommend again."
Pros: "I like the comfort seat from New York to Guangzhou on Being 777 even though it was a long flight of almost 15 hours."
Cons: "The white wine served on the CZ600 flight between New York and Guangzhou was not chilled. The flight crews should be trained that white wine needs to be served chilled. The Delta Club at JFK closed before midnight. However the outbound flight from JFK did not leave until 1:40 am. There should be notice where the business class customers should go to get lounge services."
Cons: "Entertainment had no variety"
Cons: "Vegetarian options would be nice."
Cons: "I fact that though I have Elite Plus status in the SkyTeam alliance I didn't have an upgrade and people who have no status were given upgrades!"

Cons: "DELAYED FOR 7 HOURS"
Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful. It was almost empty so I had an entire row to myself and I could stretch out and sleep."
Cons: "The 16 hour delay was horrendous. China Southern knew this flight was going to be delayed more than 12 hours before the scheduled departure. Yet, they did nothing to prepare for it. They began looking for hotel rooms after the departure time had passed. I was in the last batch taken to a hotel where I had a choice of sleeping on the tile conference room floor or sharing a room with a stranger. At least I got my own bed. Others had to share a bed with a stranger. There was no prior thought given to prepare for the situation, no meal vouchers offered, and the level of rudeness displayed by the airline staff was beyond comprehension. Delays happen. They are part of modern air travel. But, in many years of international travel, I have never before seen a delay mismanaged so completely.. Then to top it off, bags were left in NY."
Pros: "Smooth and uneventful trip"
Cons: "Food is very bad. At dinner they only have one choice when coming to my row. Told us they are running out choice."
Pros: "Airlines is usually always on time. Flight staff very friendly and eager to assist passengers. I usually order my flight ticket months in advance so I always get a very great price. The meals are very good. I've used Eva Air, China Airlines, Cathay Pacific, China Eastern but I now regularly use only China Southern because I know what I will be getting with them. Oh and I fly economy. Robert..."
Cons: "No complaints. This last flight to Asia operated so smoothly."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "We couldn't land in Kunming so we arrived with 6.5 hours delay"
Pros: "These jerks simply cancel a flight and offer zero help"
Pros: "Everything!!! Great crew and great staff."
Pros: "1.Leg room was good in economy class. 2. The Food was Good. 3. Saved travel time. 4. Tickets were cheaper compared to other airlines"
Cons: "1. Limited entertainment especially if you are Indian. 2. Had to run nearly 1 km or over at Guangzhou to catch the connecting flight to Los Angeles. The Airline could have arranged vehicles rather than letting passenger run to catch the connecting flight. That was tough especially if you could not walk fast or run."
Pros: "Better leg room than on other flights."
Pros: "Food was excellent, especially the beef tenderloin dinner. Crew was generally attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Initially seat would not adjust. Crewmember was able to fix it though."
Cons: "After booking mine & my husband's honeymoon flights from SF to Phuket, the flights were changed drastically. On the way over we were delayed a WHOLE DAY, therefore missing a FULL DAY at our beautiful resort in Thailand that we booked and was non-refundable for the night we lost. It also was not clear that we would be having to stop in Wuhan before flying to Guangzhou. Even when we were flying it still was not clear, everyone was confused as to why were in Wuhan. Then we were late and almost missed our connecting flight from Guangzho to Phuket causing us to literally have to run across the whole airport. Then on the way home, our flight from Guangzhou to SF was delayed causing us to have a 15 hr layover in Guangzhou. They put us in a hotel that looked nice on the outside and in the lobby, but the room felt dirty and the beds were like rocks. They also didn't give us any meal vouchers or allowance. This is the last time we flew China Southern Airlines."
Pros: "The route and transfer was a lot easier than other stops compared to Beijing. Staff was friendly and boarding process was very good.smooth flight."
Cons: "I was hoping for more frills being in business class. But at least it was better than any other U.S. American flight carriers on business class."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The plane was filthy. The pillow they gave me was gray for example. I had to wipe everything down first. The biggest surprise was that there was no internet on any of the four flights I took with this carrier. It's 2016 how do you not have internet available? I would not fly this airline again until they can compete with Western airlines."
Cons: "They had the worst service from start to finish."
