The movie selection was very good.

We were supposed to leave at 3:00 PM and the flight didn't actually leave until 4:45 PM. The food was not very good and I had to ask for water. I got a whole bottle of water on the flight from Shenyang to Beijing but on the flight from Beijing to LA I was only offered 2 cups of water. It was hard to get comfortable so I could sleep.

I booked for my wife and son. The Air China lady didn't want to let them board. She said at check-in the passport number on the reservation wouldn't match my wife's passport although in Houston they could bring up her ticket perfectly fine with the same passport. Took 45 minutes and the help of a more customer service oriented co-worker to get it resolved. Poor and stressful experience.

The flight was delayed over an hour to wait for a flight that had some connecting passengers-the delay caused me to miss my connection on the other side. I expect a full fligjtvto prioritize the paying customers who are already present, most of whom had connections to make. When I requested help rebooking my connecting flight in LAX, they gave me (rudely) a QR code and a “certificate” (piece of paper) that said the flight was delayed. The QR code was to check for updates for the delayed flight (useless) and the “certificate was not a help at all for rebooking my domestic connection on the other side. The flight was so late that there were no more flights out to my destination, so I ended up paying for a hotel and change fee $175+ to book a flight first thing next miening. Both the hotel and SWAir said that certificate was meaningless. Our flight over was bad too-very rude personnel at the desk, and stressed out flight attendants...miserable experience both times-never again. We pre-selected seats and both times we were separated. Save your money and pay more for an airline that has customer service because it will end up costing you more in the long run.

The check-in for my first flight was great in Philadelphia.

There are no lounges in Philadelphia that accepted my Priority Pass. Your economy passengers deserve options, which I have paid for. Movie options were not as good as expected.

Nothing was spectacular.

No lounge in Philadelphia took my Priority Pass. On the flight, the woman in front of me threw her chair back without asking and almost had hot coffee all over me. When I asked her to put her chair up, she got mad. She went to staff to insist she could put her chair back. I showed them that I was indeed in a back brace for a health condition and that I needed opportunities to move and shift, cross legs to release tension, etc. Staff sided with the rude woman, who, given the chance to move to an equal seat on the opposite aisle where she could recline, refused to move. I was very frustrated and have never been treated with such discrimination regarding my health concerns.

They just seem fake friendly. Be nice if they also were more lenient on carry on luggage. Very unreasonable making the start of vacation stressful moving stuff from our carry on to other luggage over 1 kg. It was obnoxious. They had another scale at the gate which was over the top obnoxious. I felt like we were a burden to the airline rather than a guest.

They need to treat people as a guest rather than a hastle. Super annoying bag check and staff and crew in plane were just ok. Whatever happen to being a guest

Staff just not as friendly as last time on This airline. Audio earphones just doesn’t work welll. It’s double prong so you can’t use your own and there ear buds very uncomfortable and earphones from previous flight didn’t work well either. This really needs fixing. 12 hours this should be a big priority.
