Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Economy seat was very uncomfortable even though it reclined a lot. Was very disappointed I could not sleep on 12 hour flight. Arm rests too low? Shape of backrest was odd. Maybe provide a bigger pillow in addition to neck pillow to have something to rest arms on. Also tou need more movies. Singapore Airlines has many more options. Overall airplane, crew and food were very nice"
Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent -- friendly, always helpful, energetic."
Cons: "We requested a seafood special meal. The food quality was satisfactory, but most of the items tasted very bland. The accompanying dishes were unimaginative -- raw vegetables (salad), steamed vegetables, pickled vegetables. One exeption was a smoked salmon bit with capers -- this was the tastiest part among 8 meals over 4 flights."
Pros: "Pretty limited movie offerings Seat was comfortable in the flat position but very little storage for phone cords and all the other goodies provided during the flight. Because a pain to store and retreive"
Cons: "Many movies were old"
Cons: "The flight was fantastic. It was a long flight but the flight attendants took excellent care to keep us comfortable."
Pros: "Food, service,"
Cons: "Some crazy flight itinerary they should not sell at all! At first I thought layover was same location only to find out it was another airport across of time. Flew into ITM and flew out KIX and boarding ticket it says only OSAKA so I didnt know. I barely made the flight....if they had accommodate the transportation I would understand. But they tell you, you have to make it there on your own. Another CRAZY information is that I thought at the very least the baggage will be transferred. But nope! You have to pick up the baggage and ride the train across town to the other station. Whoever made this itinerary should be really fired and no longer work at this company. You take a great airline and make the experience so bad."

Pros: "Perfect service, never had a more pleasant and attentive crew"

Unfortunately the staff never came and try to talk to them about this issue Most of the people including several senior citizens looked angry and frustrated."

Cons: "Being a Chinese airline, it lacks the variety of US inflight entertainment choices compared to an airline such as Cathay Pacific."

Paid another airline to catch my transfer flight and was denied the ability to board. Had to pay for a brand new ticket which I am currently going to dispute with my creditor. They are not American friendly at all. Felt targeted the entire time."
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.

THEREFORE, I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST A COMPENSATION AND REFUND FOR MY FLIGHT."
Pros: "They upgraded my wife and I to an Exit Row, I'm tall"
Cons: "Dirty bathrooms, overall poor sanitary conditions of plane. Once in Beijing we had to go thru Immigration and Security again even though we were just transferring to another international destination (Bangkok) and the lines for both Immigration and Security in Beijing were super long and grossly understaffed. Even with a 2 hour layover we almost missed our connecting flight to Bangkok."

Cons: "Well, the aircraft doesn’t have TV at the back of each seat."
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: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "But slow to take off"
Pros: "The flight was on time."

Cons: "The flight from Hong Kong to Beijing delayed . Supposed departed at 8pm , then to 10pm then to 12 finally at 2am the flight was cancelled. Then rebook next day flight, depart at 11am but delay to 1pm. Service customers are not the priority to this company.Aviod to this air China if possible."
